This whole story,
the one you're about to sit on your fat ass
and watch like a big lump of nothing, is about me.
Ew! Not her.
You know me.
Everyone knows me.
I'm an icon.
The fake heiress allegedly scammed her way through thousands of dollars
in gourmet meals, luxury hotel rooms and private jet flights.
Sources say she also conned Manhattan's glitterati,
leaving egg on the faces of society's biggest players
from the art world, real- estate, fashion and Wall Street.
That part's all lies, you know. I did nothing wrong.
This is bullshit.
Anna Delvey's a masterpiece, bitches, and they can all just fu...
I work for my success.
I earn my accomplishments.
Maybe you'll learn how to be smart like me.
I doubt it, but you can dream.
The Manhattan District Attorney's Office
is pleased to announce the indictment of Anna Sorokin.
Miss Sorokin is also known by the alias Anna Delvey.
Miss Sorokin is charged
in a New York State Supreme Court indictment
with two counts of attempted grand larceny in the first degree,
three counts of grand larceny in the second degree
and one count of grand larceny third degree, and theft of services.
Anna Sorokin committed real white- collar felonies
while posing as a socialite
in an attempt to steal millions and millions of dollars.
Investigations into her further criminal activity are ongoing.
If you believe you may have been a victim of this defendant,
I urge you to call the financial fraud hotline.
Are you reading it?
That girl's back in New York.
I can't believe it. How do you think they caught her?
The universe corrects all wrongs.
We need to drink about Anna. Did you see the article?
I never met her.
We never met her.
Darling, it was in the papers.
This could turn into a big, uh, thing.
I have no desire to be humiliated.
It was one story, one reporter. The Post of all places.
I mean, no one else is going to pick this up.
And why would they?
Who on Earth would be interested in lowly Anna Delvey?
Nora. Hello, dear. - Hmm.
You see anything? - No assignments on the board yet.
I'm saying it now.
They give me Melania, I'm jumping.
I will not write any more Melania stories.
I miss writing about the Obamas.
I might have a story.
I was thinking, "What the hell, go in there and pitch it."
Yeah, get in there. Go. - Go for it.
Take a shot. - Why not?
Come on. - Okay, fuck it. I'm going in.
You got it. - Yeah.
Oh, no. I can't watch.
Yeah. Yeah, that sounds good.
Vivian. Uh, we're having a meeting.
I know, and before you got too far,
I wanted to put in a bid for my next story.
What am I looking at?
Her name is Anna Delvey, or Anna Sorokin, no one's sure.
She's either a mega rich German heiress,
or she's flat broke, and maybe she's Russian.
Vivian, I... - That's the point, no one knows.
Whoever she is, the DA's office just extradited her from LA
and she's being arraigned today.
I'm going down to the courthouse now, so I'm already late.
I'll be on that. - Landon...
Vivian! - She's on the Wall Street #MeToo story.
And do I really need to be?
Mmm. That story is... - Why are you complaining this time?
I gave you something riveting and provocative.
I'm asking to be on this instead, Landon.
Paul assigns your stories. - Okay, but this is a cover story.
A dumb socialite. - I don't think so.
Just give me a chance to get an interview.
The indictment reads like a novel.
The charges, the arena, the players are insane.
We're talking big banks, financial advisors, hedge funds,
law firms, real- estate developers, philanthropists, galleries,
art dealers, all of Fashion Week,
and half of New York society, and she's 26 years old.
I couldn't tie my own shoes at 26. You know I give good story.
Let me do this.
Paul assigns your stories.
Wall Street, #MeToo.
I want copy in three weeks.
We want her remanded, Your Honor.
No bail? Come on!
Your Honor, we all know the reason she is in court
is because you allowed us to hunt and capture her.
Remand is warranted, Your Honor.
Your Honor, she's... - She's a flight risk.
DA's office will ask
for a substantial prison sentence in this case.
Remand is more than appropriate in this case.
My client has every intention of coming back to court.
Your Honor, she's a young, vulnerable, nonviolent offender.
Set a reasonable bail and I will surrender her passport,
and then she will be able to assist me in her own defense,
which will take a tremendous amount of work, given the financial charges.
Miss Sorokin, Mr. Spodek asked me to consider bail.
I am. I have.
I have no confidence whatsoever
in you returning to this jurisdiction to face the music.
I am remanding you to Rikers Island until trial.
Remand, take charge.
You put up a good fight in there. - Thanks.
I can't imagine a young woman her age having to spend time at Rikers like that.
