As filming for Sofia Coppola’s upcoming flick, The Bling Ring, is currently underway, one of the people involved in the actual crimes is off celebrating…!
Alexis Neiers, the “Bling Ring” member who took part in numerous burglaries of celebrity homes back in 2008 and 2009, tied the knot in Mexico last week!
The 20 year old former Pretty Wild reality star married Canadian Evan Haines, a business owner, at a small ceremony of 20 people.
"It's really an incredible thing to learn to love yourself and then to be able to allow yourself to be unconditionally loved by another. When I entered this relationship I was happy, and now I'm even happier. He is the kindest man I've ever known. I am truly blessed."
Neiers reveals she met her hubby in Alcoholics Anonymous, after a few months of therapy. Evan pursued her for about a month until she finally agreed to their first date.
The former bling-ringer seems to have made a complete turnaround — Alexis went back to school after rehab to become a drug and alcohol counselor and has now even started a non-profit in El Lay!
"Our goal is to provide a safe haven for youth and young adults who are less fortunate and addicted to substances. We'd like to not only provide 12-step meetings, group therapy and counseling, but also to include different holistic approaches to help people recover and deal with psychiatric disorders."
Good for her! We can’t knock someone for getting their lives together AND helping others do the same!
We wish her and Evan the best.
