I know I’m late to the party, but I finally got around to watching a few episodes of Pretty Wild on E! Its a lovely reality show featuring flash in the pan reality star/ criminal Alexis Neiers and her family.
Alexis was part of the “Bling Ring”, bored teenagers accused of burgling $3 million in art, designer clothing and other items from the residences of celebrities including Orlando Bloom, Paris Hilton and Megan Fox. Neiers is accused only in the July 2009 burglary of Bloom’s home, a crime caught on security video, although LAPD detectives found what they say is evidence from break-ins of other homes in Neiers’ house.
E! greenlit the show in August 2009 after the Bling Ring robberies started but before Alexis Neiers was identified as a suspect and arrested last October. So Alexis’ absurd legal defense became the focus of season one. With subplots consisting of sister Tess’ modeling career as a former Playboy Cyber Girl, 15 year-old sister Gabby wondering why her life has been turned upside down, and momma bear Andrea playing Edina Monsoon complete with interest in Buddhism and instant celebrity. Right now the show is on hiatus, so in the meantime E! is running the nine episodes at random times of the day so set your DVR, get some booze, and enjoy the Pretty Wild Drinking Game:
Please write to E! and have them bring back these people (a term I use loosely) for another season. There are so many questions. We know that Alexis ending up pleading no contest to first degree residential burglary and is now serving 180 days in county jail with three years probation. What its it like on the “inside”? Will she get some more tattoos? I don’t know that her flower tattoos will establish her street cred on the “inside”. Tess was already a Playboy model before she turned 20, so what’s left of her career? Will Gabby be normal or turn out like her sisters? Will Andrea finally crack and try to one up Dina Lohan?
