The Real Life Gossip Girl Who Took Over NYC

Have You Earned Your Tomorrow

By Edgar Guest

Is anybody happier because you passed his way? Does anyone remember that you spoke to him today? This day is almost over, and its toiling time is through; Is there anyone to utter now a kindly word of you?

Did you give a cheerful greeting to the friend who came along? Or a churlish sort of "Howdy" and then vanish in the throng? Were you selfish pure and simple as you rushed along the way, Or is someone mighty grateful for a deed you did today?

Can you say tonight, in parting with the day that's slipping fast, That you helped a single brother of the many that you passed? Is a single heart rejoicing over what you did or said; Does a man whose hopes were fading now with courage look ahead?

Did you waste the day, or lose it, was it well or sorely spent? Did you leave a trail of kindness or a scar of discontent? As you close your eyes in slumber do you think that God would say, You have earned one more tomorrow by the work you did today?

When new mysterious it-girl, Anna Delvey, arrived on New York’s social elite scene, people took notice. Any of New York’s richest socialite worth their salt (or crisp Benjamin Franklin) spotted Anna as she effortlessly assimilated into their world. But those who came close to Anna soon discovered that the blue-eyed beauty was playing a much more dangerous game.


Anna Delvey lived a lavish lifestyle, effortlessly fitting in with the privileged elite of New York City. She would jet-set on private planes to exotic islands and dine at the world’s most premier restaurants. All the while dressed in high-end designer clothes. Even though Anna’s life seemed Instagram-worthy, all wasn’t what it seemed.


By 2016, Anna Delvey was a regular in the New York City social scene. She was seen in luxurious downtown bars, clubs, and restaurants. Her extravagant lifestyle and a seemingly endless supply of money made Anna an enigma. She had no permanent address, flitting from hotel to hotel. For months at a time, Anna stayed in deluxe hotels such as The Standard, The Beekman, The Mercer, and 11 Howard. She handed out $100 tips to anyone and everyone like it was nothing at all.

Acquaintances all had heard rumors of how Anna acquired her wealth. Her father was a Russian billionaire, a Russian diplomat, an oil tycoon, an antique collector, or a solar energy capitalist. No one knew the truth about Anna’s past. She was a true NYC enigma. Until the truth came out.


So who is the real Anna Delvey? The fake heiresses’ real name is Anna Sorokin. She is 28 years old. And she is currently on trial for grand larceny. Sorokin stole thousands of dollars from NYC social elite, banks, wealthy well-intentioned friends, and businesses. And there’s more: Sorokin presumes she is innocent and, according to her attorney, “never intended to commit a larceny.”


There are rumors about a Netflix series based on the wannabe socialite’s major fraud of NYC’s social elite.
