On 25 January it was announced, Anna Delvey, a.k.a. Anna Sorokin, the art world grifter, has signed a deal for an unscripted reality TV series titled ‘Delvey’s Dinner Club‘. The show will involve her throwing dinner parties for an exclusive IT crowd, including celebs, moguls, and socialites. Delvey will have no choice but to throw these aired gatherings in her East Village apartment, as she is still under house arrest after a stint at Rikers and beating ICE’s threats of deportation.
“There’s nothing like the experience of bringing together a curated group of friends to share life stories and enjoy a great culinary experience,” Delvey commented, in a statement about the show.
In the press release from its producers, former Food Network president Courtney White’s Butternut production company stated: “She’ll do it through what’s already become one of the hottest tables in town — invitation-only, intimate dinners at her home,”. “There, a Delvey-invited group of actors, musicians, founders, socialites, journalists and other esteemed guests will join her each week around a private-chef catered table replete with candid conversations where no topic is off-limits.”
In an interview with Page Six, Delvey shared a list of her dream guests, which included Madonna; Elon Musk; Marina Abramović; Ottessa Moshfegh; the secretary of homeland security, Alejandro Mayorkas; the former secretary of state Cyrus Vance; crypto CEO Sam Bankman-Fried; and Moneyball and The Big Short author Michael Lewis, many of whose books were featured in the reading list Delvey recently shared with Vogue magazine.
This is only the beginning for the scam-artist-turned-real-artist’s rebound onto the glitterati social scene. She has plentiful successful art businesses and is currently writing a book about her experiences. Plus, in February 2022 Delvey signed a deal with Bunim/Murray Productions to star in a docuseries about her life after prison.
