Must be the season of the grift, cuz con artists like the Tinder Swindler, Elizabeth Holmes, and Anna Sorokin, aka Anna Delvey, are all getting their day in the sun thanks to movies and TV shows about their scams. Netflix reportedly paid Russian-German scheme-queen Anna Delvey $320,000 to adapt her story for Shonda Rhimes’ Inventing Anna, and now she’s sharing her opinions on the series with Cosmopolitan. Unfortunately, Anna did not comment on Julia Garner’s take on her absolutely bonkers accent.
I’ve seen stories about how the whole NFT bubble is about to burst and rich people are going to soon cash out so they don’t lose a ton of money, but here’s Lindsay Lohan talking about how she just sold an NFT for $85,000 and how you should be getting into NFTs too! I mean, why not take the advice of noted financial and tech guru Lindsay Lohan who relies on a career of making money through unhinged TikTok advertisements?
Lori Loughlin Got Two Months In Prison While Mossimo Giannulli Got Five Months For Their Roles In The College Admissions Scandal
As expected, Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli were sentenced today after someone shot them up with a potent load of common sense and they reversed their not guilty pleas and finally took a plea deal for charges they faced for paying $500,000 to get their daughters, Olivia Jade Giannulli and Isabella Rose Giannulli, into USC by passing them off as rowing stars even though if you asked them about rowing, they’d say, “Isn’t that the Olsens fashion line?” As part of their plea deal, both Lori and Mossimo pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud (and Mossimo also pleaded guilty to an additional charge of honest services wire and mail fraud). Lori agreed to serve two months in the clink and Mossimo agreed to five months, but ultimately their fate was up to a judge. If you were hoping that the judge would fart on the plea deals and give them LIFE in a maximum-security prison, you’re going to be disappointed. Because the judge accepted their plea deals.
Charlotte Kirk’s Current Man, Director Neil Marshall, Has Been Accused Of Trying To Extort Ron Meyer
Before this week, the name Charlotte Kirk would make everyone’s brain bring up MariahCareyIDontKnowHer.GIF, which excuse you, this is the huge British movie star who played the pivotal role of “Russian Bride” in 2016’s Kat Fight!. Educate yourselves! But Charlotte Kirk is now known as the center of an ESCANDALO involving the downfall of two studio heads, Ron Meyer and Kevin Tsujihara. And now the names of two directors, Neil Marshall and Joshua Newton, have been added to this saga. Neil, who is currently with Charlotte (The Hollywood Reporter claims they’re married), has been accused of trying to extort Ron Meyer into greenlighting a movie project in exchange for keeping Ron’s affair with Charlotte on the hush. Listen, IN THIS ECONOMY, you gotta do what you gotta do to pay the bills. Some people are selling masks on Etsy. Some people are selling ass shots on OnlyFans. And some people are extorting the married studio mogul their now-wife had an affair with years ago.
If you haven’t dove straight into the fascinating saga of Anna Sorokin (grifter name: Anna Delvey), then cancel your plans to see Avengers: Endgame tonight (and I know you have tickets since all of you nerds do!), and take your eyeballs over to New York Magazine to read the grifter tale of the Elizabeth Holmes of Manhattan. But basically, Anna scammed the NYC elite, banks and others into thinking she was a rich German heiress with a trust fund who came to the city to open up a SoHo House-style club. But she turned out to be a Russian immigrant who didn’t have a multi-million dollar trust fund. And now Joanne the Scammer’s Russian hero will be known as inmate# (insert whatever her inmate number is here) for a while.
If there’s ever going to be a riveting trial involving the college admissions ESCANDALO, you won’t see Felicity Huffman starring in it. You won’t ever see her dramatically pull off her wedding ring on the witness stand and throw it at William H. Macy as she tearfully whines about how she’s going down for this shit while he doesn’t ever have to worry about trying to make avocado toast out of mushy peas and cardboard in the clink. Felicity’s next role won’t be crying privileged parent in the college admissions courtroom drama, because she and 12 others will take a plea deal and plead guilty.
