Convicted Scammer Anna Delvey, Née Sorokin, Uses Legally Blonde Clip to Celebrate Getting Out of Prison Early

Anna Sorokin, who self-identifies by her scammer name Anna Delvey, is famous for a few things: pretending to be an heiress of murky origin; tricking her friend into putting their Moroccan vacation on her credit card; claiming to be so rich that even those discerning folks in the New York investor class lent her money; and for her expensive, but ultimately imperfect taste in clothing. It’s been ages, but remember her?

After serving a few years in prison, including the time she spent while on trial, she’s getting out on good behavior. Her release date is February 15, 2021, according to the New York Post. Her lawyer Todd Spodek told the paper, “Anna has paid her debt to society handsomely, and I hope society repays the favor.”

In honor of the news, a video was posted on her Instagram account over the weekend from Legally Blonde—the part where Elle Woods gets the LSAT score she’d been working toward on her way to Harvard Law (“179!,” etc). So she’s been brushing up on all the relevant texts.

Another Instagram that found its way to her account while she was behind bars is a sketch posted September 6. It’s of what appears to be herself sunbathing by the prison’s fence in a turtleneck and reading Sally Rooney’s Normal People, to the side of which is scrawled, “Looking for tips,” a fun little joke. The drawing includes outfit credits as well. The top is Tom Ford and bottom is Norma Kamali. The sunglasses are Miu Miu and they are labeled “(contraband).”

Where do twee sketches fall on the good behavior/bad behavior divide? Does this mean that the baby doll dresses from court worked? These are questions for parole boards to know and for us to  find out only when Delvey does some kind of televised tell-all from wherever she ends up. The lesson, however, is clear: nothing can turn you from a fake heiress to a real American fraudster like a commuted sentence in medium-security prison.

Anyway, she’s likely getting deported to Germany when she’s out, the Post said, and all I have to say to that is, take me with you, ma’am.
