A well-respected NJ dermatologist was found half-naked and unconscious in the foyer of a New York apartment building during the wee hours of Sunday morning. Initially, authorities were confused as to how and why the married Mother of three ended up in such a situation…until a sordid tale of an apparent extramarital affair with a television producer and wild, recreational drug use slowly began to come to light.
NY Post: A supposed “girls night out” for a married doctor turned into a deadly drug binge with an Emmy-nominated HBO producer in his dealer’s Chelsea apartment, police sources told The Post on Monday.
Pretty dermatologist Kiersten Rickenbach Cerveny, 38, a mother of three, is believed to have suffered a fatal cocaine overdose while partying with Marc Henry Johnson in the wee hours Sunday morning, sources said.
Surveillance video shows Johnson, who is also married, carrying Cerveny down the stairs inside 223 W. 16th St. with the help of ex-con James Holder, sources said.
The video also shows the men dropping or dumping the former beauty-pageant princess in the vestibule at around 8:30 a.m., then going their separate ways outside.
Johnson — who is currently producing “The Deuce,” a pilot for an HBO series about the porn industry starring James Franco and Maggie Gyllenhaal — called 911, and paramedics tried in vain to revive Cerveny, the sources said.“She came out topless,” a building resident said. “Her face was white and her lips were blue. They were doing chest compressions.”
And it seems that no one had any idea that Cerveny got down this way at all…
Angelo Pappas, 46, a New York City teacher, said he often saw Cerveny and her husband jogging with their kids in a stroller at 6 a.m.
“You’re talking about a person who looks very healthy, working out. That type,” he said.
A friend and fellow club member, Penny Morash, called Kiersten Cerveny “a great mom.”
“Everybody thinks it’s horrible that this is what she’s going to be known for,” Morash said.Follow Me On Twitter & Instagram: @effiongeton
