Pretty Wild star Alexis Neiers–you’re forgiven if you’ve never heard of her or her crappy E! reality series–is going to jail for robbing Orlando Bloom’s home, but says she’s innocent. She was originally arrested during taping of the series.
CNN reports that yesterday, “Alexis Neiers was sentenced to 180 days in jail Monday for her role in the ‘bling ring’ burglaries of celebrity homes in the Hollywood, California, area” and “wiped away tears after entering a no-contest plea to a single felony charge of burglarizing the home of actor Orlando Bloom last July.”
Today, in an exclusive interview surprisingly given to E! News, the E! reality star insisted, “I didn’t do anything wrong.” She said that she wasn’t going to plead no contest, because “I thought we were going to trial and we had a great shot at this. I had been so confident because I had thought up until this point that I didn’t do anything wrong. … The table turned instantly. I knew if I went to trial my chances would be slim. I feel like I’ve been fighting for so long, to give up would be the hardest decision.”
Her attorney Jeffrey Rubenstein said, “I think the fact that Orlando Bloom [would testify], and the weight of a celeb testifying against Alexis, made us realize the odds were stacked against us. This was a last-minute decision. We were ready for trial.”
So, not only did Orlando Bloom get robbed, but it’s his fault she wasn’t able to prove she’s innocent? Here’s a scene from her shitty show–be on the look-out for the super-fake voice over–in which she receives some news that’s particularly hilarious now that she’s going to jail:
