Alexis Neiers, who entered reality television lore after her memorable appearance on the short-lived reality show Pretty Wild--which coincided with her prosecution and incarceration for being involved in the notorious "Bling Ring" scandal--was born 25 years ago today.

Alexis (now Alexis Haines) has kept a remarkably low-profile since her more tumultuous foray into the public eye, and spends her days now (married with a daughter) as a staunch advocate for addiction awareness and recovery, and writer for VICE--overcoming her own battle with drugs and alcohol.

While we celebrate the reality star's healthy and happy post-television existence...

...it seems a good a time as any to salute her for giving us the greatest moment in reality television history.

In the clip, Neiers--embroiled in the very sensationalized "Bling Ring" trial--was distraught over a 2010 interview she did with Nancy Jo Sales for Vanity Fair.

The article, famously called " The Suspect Wore Louboutins," painted Neiers in a less-than desirable (but at the time, accurate) light.

Neiers, BURSTING with horror and "disappointment," decides to leave a little ,message on Sales', to the encouragement of her mother and sisters.

What happens next, well...you know.
