Although the former RHONY star would love to see New York's most elite scam artist appear on the show, she also admitted she had never met her.

As OK! previously reported, Sorokin was convicted on several counts of grand larceny and theft services in 2019 after months of conning her close friends and other businesses.

She was released from prison in 2021, but arrested again for being in the country illegally after her visa expired. She spent the next few months in ICE custody until she was released again in March. Although it was previously announced she had left the country, Sorokin is still reportedly still fighting deportation.

As for the RHONY reboot, producer Andy Cohen announced the new take on the popular Bravo series in late March.

"You know that we’re at a crossroads for ‘RHONY,'" he explained of the decision to split the show into two — a reboot with new stars, and another show bringing back fan favorites. "We’ve spent a lot of time figuring out where to go. And the plan that we’ve come up with, I think, is a real gift to the fans."
