Every episode of Netflix’s true crime series Shondaland Invented Anna begins with the same unhelpful disclaimer: “This whole story is absolutely true. Except for the completely made up parts. But how many parts of the series are fictional? In an interview this week with Alex Cooper Call her daddy podcast, recorded from an ICE facility in upstate New York, Anna Delvey herself set the record straight away—something like that.
Cooper asked the fake German heiress, whose real name is Anna Sorokin, about a scene in episode 8 of the show, when Anna is arrested for her crimes and flees to Los Angeles. While staying at the famous Chateau Marmont, Anna, played by Julia Garner, makes a suicide attempt by rinsing off a few pills with alcohol, but calls room service to find her before she overdoses. As a result, she underwent a 24-hour psychiatric evaluation at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and enrolled in a canine rehabilitation program.
When Cooper recounted the episode’s details, Delvey laughed with amusement. She said earlier that she only saw “pieces” of Invented Anna, and it looks like she’s hearing about this particular plotline for the first time. When Cooper asked if the suicide attempt really happened, she replied emphatically, “No. Absolutely not. No.” After a pause, she asked the host, “What drug do I have to take?” Cooper pressed again, asking, “So you’ve never had suicidal thoughts?” and again, Delvey kept her short answer, “No.”
Cooper and Delvey didn’t discuss the Netflix series further, but they did talk about the notoriously popular voiceover Garner deployed for the role. “The first time I heard Julia talk like me, I was like, ‘Oh my, do I sound unbearable? ”” Delvey said with a laugh. “It was so weird, like, hearing yourself. This is the same as when you only hear your voice recorded, it’s completely different from how you hear yourself when you speak. (However, she wants people to know that her accent is 100% real.)
The jury is still out on whether Delvey’s jail time has changed her; she remains committed to the VIP lifestyle more than ever, enlisting inmates as “assistants” to hand wash her laundry. But she was telling the truth, there were some of her lies in her interview with Cooper. “Do you lie about your background, or your wealth, or how much money you have?” Cooper asked at one point. “I guess I did,” Delvey replied. “I mean, I can’t say an exact case, but I’m sure.” She then added, “But all of that, I’ve never told any nonsense lies. Unless they are a bank. “Sure, as long as you just tell the banks pointless lies.
As for whether she considers herself a fraud or has ever told anyone that she is a German heiress who inherited a large fortune, she denies both views. According to Delvey, she doesn’t consider herself a fraud because she doesn’t mean to harm her actions. “I never intended to permanently harm anyone, you know?” she told Cooper. “I can’t really think of an example where I’m like, ‘Yeah, let me fuck this person and they’ll never see my money again.’
Delvey ended the interview with a half-hearted note. In the midst of her banishment battle, the 31-year-old joked about Twitter, “Willing to marry @kanyewest for US green card.” Referring to the tweet, Cooper asked if Delvey would really consider dating the controversial rapper, especially now that he’s been dating Delvey’s best friend from New York City partying, Julia Fox.
“That is a difficult question. It was a joke, that Tweet,” Delvey replied. “I don’t know. He doesn’t seem to get the best reviews, so I don’t know.”
