Remember the Bling Ring? Alexis Neiers, the chick who basically headed up the whole thing and then got that E! show Pretty Wild, she’s in rehab for heroin addiction. That happened like a month ago after the cops busted her with a balloon full of the stuff. Then yesterday we learned that her sister Tess Taylor, who also starred on Pretty Wild, is also in rehab for heroin addiction. What the fuck is going on with this family?
Alexis and Taylor’s mother, Andrea Arlington, made a statement about Tess’s rehab stay, saying, “Approximately two weeks ago after a lot of coaxing from sister Alexis and myself, and after almost losing her life, Tess contacted Greg Hannley, owner of the SOBA Recovery center in Malibu and asked for help.”
She also said that her daughter was down to just 93 lbs. by the time she finally agreed to go into treatment.
Uhhh, look. I’ve never personally dealt with a situation like this, so you’ll have to pardon my ignorance, but how does this even happen? Are these girls this way because of shitty parenting, over or underexposure to the finer things or some sort of lethal combination? My suburban Massachusetts brain can’t even begin to wrap itself around this kind of behavior.
