The Bling Ring’s Alleged Leader Rachel Lee Revisits Infamous Celebrity Crime Case in New Documentary

Rachel Lee is heading back to the Hollywood Hills—in a sense. The alleged leader of the infamous Bling Ring will revisit the crime spree that made her and a few other teenagers, including Alexis Neiers and Nick Prugo, household names in the early aughts in an upcoming HBO documentary. "Most people, if they saw me on the street they'd be like, 'Oh she's just a normal person,'" Lee says in the documentary's trailer. "But there's always anxiety. What if they realize who I am and what I did with the Bling Ring?" As a refresher, the Bling Ring was the nickname given to the group of teens and young adults who targeted homes belonging to a few celebs such as Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom, Rachel Bilson, Lindsay Lohan and Audrina Patridge. (They were later convicted of multiple thefts in the wake of their spree, which is believed to have occurred over the course of nearly a year until August 2009.)

"I didn't like my world," Lee continues in the trailer. "Going into a celebrity home and trying on their stuff, I was able to live in their world."
