'Fake Heiress' Anna Delvey plans dinner series with the rich and famous while being under house arrest
There has been a lot of interest in Anna Delvey and her exploits, especially since the Netflix show came out
EAST VILLAGE, NEW YORK CITY: Convicted con artist Anna Delvey has some great plans to pass time during her house arrest - and it involves dinner parties! Yes, you read that right! The scammer apparently has her team shopping for kitchen décor and asking for donations from food and beverage companies to make the parties a roaring success.
The dinner parties will be called a ‘salon series’ and “welcome 10-12 VIP attendees including well-known founders, influencers, media, and celebrity talent friends,” emails obtained by the New York Post say.
The party series is expected to focus on different dinner table topics about “social good movements” and “collective experiences across industries.” However, it would seem that the plans are a long time away from materializing, with her team saying in a statement, “Although not yet confirmed, the dinner series is one of the many projects Anna currently has in development.”
It has also been said that unlike Delvey’s past endeavors, this one will not cost guests anything. They are expected to happen on a monthly basis. Delvey, or Sorokin, as is her real last name, currently resides in a fifth-floor walk-up in the East Village - the apartment has one bedroom and was listed for $4,250 a month. Despite being kept under house arrest and downsizing her living establishments, Delvey is still gung-ho about her ambitions to be part of the rich and famous. This whole concept of a dinner party series is not the first of such plans - she had already worked on conducting something similar at the 281 Park Avenue South building, which went on sale for $135 million earlier this year. She had hoped to establish a sort of club for the crème de la crème to sip tea and have discussions.
Delvey was found guilty of swindling millions from banks, hotels and wealthy friends by faking her identity as a socialite. She was given a prison sentence of 4-12 years, but she managed to get released after serving just 2 years. Early in October, she was released with a $10,000 bail only to be put under house arrest and banned from using social media.
Delvey is now under constant monitoring, with an ankle monitor to keep her movements in check. She has no access to social media and is observed 24/7. With all her restrictions, it would seem that she is hoping to still live the high life by turning her apartment into the private club she envisioned creating earlier. And if anyone doubts Delvey’s ability to pull this off, especially with her being watched and restricted - remember, she did conduct an art show while being detained and is now selling her prison sketches for up to $25,000.
Well, what do you know, If you can’t go to the party, bring the party to yourself!
