Time for your Adderall, everyone! The full theatrical trailer for Sofia Coppola’s “The Bling Ring,” starring Emma Watson, has arrived! This. Looks. Stupid. Goooooood.
“The Bling Ring” has sounded promising since news first relayed that Sofia Coppola would be adapting the story for the silver screen. It goes something like this: a band of spoiled, fame-obsessed Hollywood teenagers break into the homes of stars like Orlando Bloom and Paris Hilton. It’s a startling (and, as you’ll recall, true) tale of celebrity, greed, and youth in the age of the Internet, which the teens used to track down the whereabouts of their high-profile victims. The first photo of the cast hit the web this week via Entertainment Weekly, and I must say, they’ve styled the naughty mid-aughties kids to a T: Emma Watson looks every bit the young, wealthy heathen, replete with a fur vest and, naturally, the requisite how-old-are-you-why-do-you-have-that Birkin bag. The rest of the cast is spot-on, too: attractive, expensively-dressed, big iced coffees, no-soul-behind-my-Dior-sunglasses stares … yeah, I’m really looking forward to this movie. It’s too bad it won’t be in theaters until next year. [Crushable]
One of the things I never sit around wondering is “What is Alexis Neiers up to?” Praise be, all has been quiet since the Vanity Fair article about Alexis and the “bling ring” of friends who robbed celebrities’ homes, the jail time she served for robbing Orlando Bloom’s home, and her horrible E! reality show, “Pretty Wild.” This morning, however, 19-year-old wannabe model Alexis was arrested for probation violation after being released from the slammer in July and sources tell TMZ she was in possession of black tar heroin. Alexis also allegedly had a fake Florida’s driver’s license and was reportedly booked for probation violation, possession of a controlled substance, and perjury (for owning a fake ID). We totally saw this coming from 3,000 miles away. This troublemaker has gotten herself into Lindsay Lohan-level problems in one-tenth of the time. [TMZ.com] Keep reading »
It’s been awhile since we’ve heard from “Pretty Wild” star Alexis Neiers, seeing as she’s been locked up in jail and all. Alexis is fresh out of the pokey and still denying involvement in the “bling ring” robberies, in which a group of L.A. teenagers robbed the homes of celebs like Orlando Bloom, Paris Hilton, and Lindsay Lohan. Even though Alexis and Lindsay had jail cells right next to each other in a California correctional facility — where Alexis says she could hear Lindsay crying on Lindz’s first day — she says the pair never spoke once. How strange! [E! Online] Keep reading »
You might have thought when Lindsay Lohan got locked up, we’d be granted a reprieve from her 24/7 news coverage. Haha, no. Tracking LiLo’s day-to-day goings-on is just as breathless when she’s in jail as when she’s posing in the nude. Fortunately for those of us who couldn’t care less about her jailhouse dinner menu, Lindsay may only serve two weeks of her 90-day sentence as prisoner #24097527.
So, what have Lindsay’s first days of jail been like? They’ve included painkillers (maybe), cold cereal and visits from her mom and sis. Keep reading »
Poor “Pretty Wild” star Alexis Neiers. Yesterday, the 19-year-old troublemaker began serving her 180-day sentence for her participation in the “bling ring,” a group of teenagers who broke into celebrity houses and stole jewelry and other valuables. Neiers was specifically convicted for her role in robbing Orlando Bloom‘s home. She doesn’t seem super psyched about where she’s headed, huh? Chin up, Alexis, and use the time to consider other fun activities for your future, outside of robbing other rich people. Keep reading »
, star of E!’s “Pretty Wild,”
is going to jail for her role in the bling ring
, that gang of teens who robbed celebs like Orlando Bloom and Rachel Bilson. She’s been sentenced to 180 days, but if those pictures we told you about yesterday are any indication — where she and friend/co-star Tess Taylor are smoking heroin — she’d be better off in rehab. So how does Neiers feel about her upcoming stint in the clink? Find out in an E! News interview above. Obvs, there are tears. Keep reading »
Yesterday, “Pretty Wild” star Alexis Neiers was sentenced to 180 days in the clink for her participation in the bling ring, a group of Hollywood-area knuckleheads who robbed celebrities like Orlando Bloom and Rachel Bilson. Now it looks like any chance that her time in the slammer will appear on a second season of the E! show are dashed — the network is reportedly canceling the show, not because of Neiers’ prison sentence, but because new photos of her and pal Tess Taylor reportedly doing drugs have hit the internet. The gossip site The Dirty, which released photos of Taylor topless and smoking from a bong last week, has new photos online today (see all of them here), which allegedly show Neiers and Taylor smoking black tar heroin. Now, I’m not exactly an expert in what smoking heroin looks like from afar, but these pics don’t bode well for the young reality show stars. E! would be doing the right thing by canceling the show, freeing up Taylor and Neiers’ time to go to a little place called rehab. [The Dirty] Keep reading »
Oh noes! “Pretty Wild” star Alexis Neiers has been sentenced to 180 days in jail for her role in the “bling ring,” a group of riff raff accused of robbing celebrities like Lindsay Lohan, Audrina Patridge, Rachel Bilson and Orlando Bloom. Neiers pleaded no contest to stealing almost $600,000 worth of goods from Bloom’s Hollywood home and, in addition to the six months in the slammer, was also sentenced to three years felony probation. She’s got to turn herself into police by June 24. The question is, will this coincide with a possible second season of “Pretty Wild”? [Celebridoodle] Keep reading »
