In the early 2000s, a group of teenagers collectively known as "The Bling Ring" reportedly stole over $3 million dollar’s worth of possessions from celebrities like Orlando Bloom, Paris Hilton, Rachel Bilson, Megan Fox, Lindsay Lohan and more. Over a decade later, a viral Vanity Fair article and a subsequent film still control the narrative of this story— not the people involved. If you watched the film, you might think that Alexis Haines (née Neiers) was the ringleader of the Bling Ring. So it might surprise you to learn that she was actually only at one of the break-ins, and at the time, she was addicted to heroin and dealing with the aftermath of abuse. Alexis will be the first one to tell you that stealing is always wrong. Full stop. But so long as her story is still being told in the media, she should be the one to tell it.  Alexis tells Nicole and Morgan her side of The Bling Ring story, her tips on manifesting money, the financial and emotional cost of reality TV, the latest on her divorce, the silver linings of her recovery journey, and everything in-between. To learn more about Alexis and to listen to her podcast Recovering from Reality, check out this link: https://www.recoveringfromreality.com/  See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Nicole approaches finance with simple steps and wit - two of my favorite things. Her words are like a friend's and never condescending. I use her suggestions in my personal finance, and I often remind myself of her recommendations between episodes.
