She Got Help And So Can You

Our pal Mitchell Sunderland interviewed Alexis Neiers — partial inspiration for Emma Watson’s character in the Bling Ring and it’s SOMETHING. She’s had an insane life, and it’s crazy to read the crazy parts, obviously (“My sister Tess and I just decided we wanted to start acting and modeling — not really to get famous, but to sustain my drug habit … I was smoking 20 80-mg oxys a day, I was doing tons of cocaine, I was panhandling for drugs. I had an over-$10,000-a-week drug habit”). Her rock bottom involved reality TV and jail and rehab, but she overcame and is doing well now. Impressive, inspiring.
