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 »

Getting photographed smoking out of a bong is dumb. But getting photographed smoking out of a bong while topless?
“Pretty Wild” reality star Tess Taylor — the one Alexis Neiers calls her “sister,” even though the two are just friends who are not biologically related — was snapped sans bra with a big ol’ bong and the pics were posted on a D-list gossip blog, TheDirty.com. Tess Taylor’s lawyer fired off a cease and desist letter to The Dirty’s editor, Nik Richie, claiming the nude photos were posted “illegally” and they violate her privacy. (At least Richie courteously Photoshopped little pink hearts over Taylor’s nips.)
I don’t know about you, but the first time I ever heard about Alexis Neiers and “the bling ring” (a group of L.A. teenagers who’ve been accused of breaking into celebrities’ homes and stealing their clothes) was in a pretty condemning Vanity Fair magazine article. This week on “Pretty Wild,” we got to see the interview from Alexis’ point of view and — you guessed it — there were tears involved. Keep reading »
This week on “Pretty Wild,” our “bling ring” buddy Alexis Neiers is planning little sister Gabby‘s Sweet 16 party with her pal, Tess. It’s just your average 16-year-old’s birthday party: a red carpet, a “Gabby-tini,” pole dancing, catered Italian food.
But somebody wants FONDUE instead, damn it. “This is my 16th birthday!” Gabby shrieks. “Not some kind of whore party!”
Thankfully, the evening news program “Dateline” has stepped in to keep a steady stream of spoiled-child dumbassery flowing freely! Friday at 9 p.m. (EST), “Dateline” will air a spot on the Hollywood “bling ring,” which is the group of Los Angeles teenagers — including Alexis Neiers, pre-reality show — who allegedly broke into the homes of actors and actresses to steal their clothes, money and jewelry. (You can read more about the Hollywood “bling ring,” and how they got busted, here.)
In the latest episode of “Pretty Wild,” Alexis Neiers and Tess Taylor did a photo shoot with Vernon Davis, tight end for the San Francisco 49ers, where they dressed up as cheerleaders. I blame the pom-poms for why a grown-ass man like Davis would agree to a “date” with Alexis afterwards. (Guess he never heard of her alleged involvement in the “bling ring”? Cue the jailbait jokes … )

Confession: I haven’t actually watched that new E! show, “Pretty Wild,” about L.A. party girl Alexis Neiers and her many, many troubles. But if the above clip of Alexis, her little sis Gabby Neiers, and their mom — reacting to Alexis getting busted for allegedly robbing celebs’ homes in a “bling ring” — is any indication of what “Pretty Wild” is all about … I’ll pass, thanks.
One thought, though: I get that pretty girls allegedly stealing celebs’ s**t is SCANDALOUS and all. But before we join in on the national pastime of spanking these bad girls — now it’s Alexis and her friend, Tess Taylor; a few years ago it was Paris Hilton — let’s hold on for a second. Shouldn’t we save up our sputtering outrage for the less “sexy” criminals — say, murderers, sexual abusers, and rapists? Just a idea. Keep reading »
Reality TV is getting a new potential sociopath we’ll love to hate: Alexis Neiers, star of the E! show “Pretty Wild,” airing on Sunday, March 14. “Pretty Wild” will star 18-year-old Neiers, her sister Gabby, 15, their friend, Tess Taylor, 19, and the mama bear of the Neiers clan, former model Andrea Arlington. But what starts out as just another party-girls-of-L.A. reality show turns into something different when Neiers is busted as a “Bling Ring” burglar who robs clothes, jewelry and cash from the homes of celebs like Paris Hilton and Orlando Bloom. Ruh roh!
