Anna’s story will soon be a Netflix series.
It was reported that Shonda Rimes plans to turn Delvey’s plan of deception into a Netflix series — something Delvey herself is reportedly very happy about.
Her friend Neff Davis told Paper magazine Delvey already knows who should play her on the small screen. “Oh, Anna’s aware. She’s like, ‘Okay, as long as Jennifer Lawrence or Margot Robbie play me,'” Neff said. “And I’m like everyone wants Lindsay Lohan to play you and she’s like, ‘Oh my god, no offense, but isn’t she like 30? My hair’s not even red anymore, did you tell them that?'”
Lena Dunham will also have a competing Delvey-inspired series on Hulu so expect to hear even more about the Soho Grifter in the months to come.
Speaking of Anna Delvey’s hair…
Writer Amanda Mull made a very good point about Delvey and Theranos inventor Elizabeth Holmes’ hair situation that should have been a red flag for anyone who interacted with the famous scammers.
“Rich people get biweekly blowouts, trims every two weeks, root touch-ups every month or so, and monthly conditioning treatments, not just because they’re obsessed with themselves and how they look, but because it’s something to do, and the idle rich need to structure their time,” she wrote for The Outline.
“Delvey, apparently, only had to be close enough to the real thing to get people to believe lies that were already extremely convenient, and that turned out not to require a keratin treatment for her frizzy ends.”
