In the Season 5 trailer, Williams can be seen sitting alongside a victim of the Tinder Swindler, as they both share their stories of being scammed by people they trusted. It seems as though the entire episode will have a con-artist theme to it, which both women are certainly well-equipped to talk about.
Williams has already received a fair amount of backlash from her apparent willingness to profit from such a traumatic event. In addition to her Vanity Fair column and book My Friend Anna, she later sold her own story rights to HBO and Lena Dunham, but as stated on the website, the project is not currently in development.
Following the release of Inventing Anna, the mini-series which took a deep-dive into Delvey and her crimes, Rachel was vocal about her disdain for the show, and its portrayal of both herself and Anna. In a piece for Air Mail, she accused the show of "running a con-woman's PR', with Williams writing a scathing review of the show's glorification of Delvey and the profits she personally received from the project.
Many have been quick to call Williams out for her incessant rehashing of the incident, and at this point, it seems there's nothing she could possibly have left to say. Her appearance on Red Table is sure to be interesting, with Jada having a knack for getting the nitty gritty details out of people. Will Williams walk away from this a more pitiful victim, or will it see her get a villain arc of her own?
We'll have to wait to find out.
