One of the most iconic moments from reality show Pretty Wild is still going viral, 13 years after it originally aired on E! 

In a TikTok posted on June 24, Alexis Haines, formerly Neiers, said she is “grateful for all of [the] tags and comments” after audio of her crying from the reality show has become a popular sound on the app.

“I think it’s really interesting that it’s mainly this younger generation using [the audio],” Haines said in the video. "I’m sure that a lot of them don’t have any context about the 'Bling Ring' and Pretty Wild and they’re just using it for their own context, which I think is cool too.”

The 2010 reality show initially aimed to document Haines’ rise to fame alongside her sister Gabby Neiers and close friend Tess Taylor, but took a turn after Haines was arrested for her involvement in “The Bling Ring” robberies that occurred between 2008 and 2009.

Haines and the rest of "The Bling Ring” were arrested for the robberies of the homes of celebrities like Orlando Bloom, Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton, among others. Haines pleaded no contest to first-degree residential burglary and served one month of a six-month sentence.

The particular audio getting attention on TikTok was pulled from a clip of Haines’ reaction after she read her interview with Vanity Fair about "The Bling Ring” and clarified that she wore “little brown kitten heels” and not “six-inch Louboutins” to court, as was written in the story. The sound clip is being used on TikTok to clarify people’s fashion choices.

“I think it’s really cool that even 13 years later, this audio is still going viral,” Haines said, sharing that she thought it was “awesome” to see people also dressed up to recreate the moment from the show.

Haines additionally took the opportunity to share further “context” and reflect on that "defining" moment in her life.

"I think we all have [defining moments] to some degree or another. Yours is probably not going to be as an 18-year-old drug addict on national television burning her life down, but we all have these moments of deep shame and regret throughout our lives; moments we just don’t know if we can recover from the amount of pain we’ve caused, the amount of pain that we’re in," said Haines.

Haines — who has previously opened up about her struggles with addiction at the time — called “resiliency” one of the “reoccurring themes” in her life and said “I don’t know if that came second nature to me or if that was like a learned skill that I had to adopt in order to survive.”

“I think it’s fabulous that [the show] has continued to last as long as it has,” Haines said. “I also want to make sure that there’s purpose there. I want my motto and my theme is always take your pain and turn it into purpose and that was a moment in my life where I have been causing a lot of people pain and when I was going through a lot of my own pain.”

Haines concluded the video and shared that she thinks “It’s important that we alchemize that and turn it into something really beautiful and it’s great to see you guys turning it into something beautiful.”

“I wanna make sure that the message stays consistent," she said, ". . . that we can go through hard things, that we can overcome hard things and become better people as a result from it."
