The Real Bling Ring: Hollywood Heist is a new Netflix documentary series with in-depth exclusives featuring Alexis Neiers (now Alexis Haines, as she is married) and Nick Prugo. Prugo and Neiers were two of the main members of “The Bling Ring”, a group of convicted thieves in Calabasas, California. They have broken into the homes of several notable celebrities including Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Orlando Bloom and more.
With the three-part docuseries now streaming on Netflix, it’s the perfect time to revisit Sofia Coppola’s 2013 satirical crime drama. The Ring Bling, which is based on crimes. Emma Watson starred in the film as one of her first major post-graduates.Harry Potter roles, playing Nicolette “Nicki” Moore, a character based on Neiers.
The Ring Bling also starred Israel Broussard, Katie Chang, Taissa Farmiga, Claire Julien, Georgia Rock and Leslie Mann. Broussard’s character Marc Hall was inspired by Prugo. The docuseries brings the film back a few times as Neiers and Prugo provide their thoughts on certain things in the film and whether or not it was an accurate representation.
