Food Network chef Sunny Anderson agreed to fork over $4,000 after indicted in Brooklyn small claims court for not paying a stylist that dressed her for the Daytime Emmy Awards earlier this year.
Stylist Oksana Pidhoreckyj, who worked with Anderson on her show “The Kitchen” has filed a complaint in September, says the chef her due of $5,000 “for services rendered.”
The hairdresser said that she was only supposed to be there two days working on Anderson’s wardrobe for the emmy’s last April — but the work took longer because the chef was not happy with her first selections.
“When she received my revised invoice, her manager explained that she does not want to pay me for a job that I don’t do well the first time,” she said.

“I explained to her manager the process and that Sunny changed her mind.”
Anderson came to small claims court without a lawyer on Monday, wearing a long denim jacket and a pair of jeans.
The couple settled in mediation, with Anderson agreeing to pay the stylist $4,000, documents show.
“I have worked with her on a TV show for the year…so if I would probably have arranged with her for the meeting in the middle if they want to..but she is like ‘I’m not f—ing paying you anything,'” Pidhoreckyj told The Post.
“I said I want a check and she goes, ‘you going to frame?’ I said, ” I plan to make money.”
Anderson could not be reached for comment.
