Paris Hilton reacts to Netflix’s new ‘Bling Ring’ doc


That’s not hot.

Paris Hilton won’t be adding the “The Real Bling Ring: Hollywood Heist” to her Netflix watchlist, Page Six has learned.

“She has no interest in reliving this after all these years,” a source exclusively tells us of the upcoming docuseries about the group of criminals who once stole millions of dollars worth of designer goods from the famed hotel heiress.

An insider also shares that Hilton, 41, was asked to take part in the Netflix doc but had to “respectfully decline” due to her hectic work schedule and imminent launch of her new company 11:11 media.

In 2013, in preparation for a film about the crimes, “The Bling Ring,” the DJ allowed a crew to film inside of her home and accepted a cameo role in the movie. However, we’re told that was because “Sofia Coppola was directing.”

Nearly 10 years after that movie came out and more than a decade after Hilton’s home was burglarized, the “Stars Are Blind” singer wants to leave that part of her life in the past.

But on Tuesday, Netflix released the trailer for their three-part docuseries and a former “Bling Ring” member reminisces in it about how Hilton’s house was their “personal ATM.”

“Really? Another unlocked door? Well, we can do this again,” Nicholas Prugo — who served a year in prison for his crimes — said in the series of the culprits’ mindset at the time.

In 2013, journalist Nancy Jo Sales wrote in her book, “The Bling Ring: How a Gang of Fame-Obsessed Teens Ripped Off Hollywood and Shocked the World,” that the group targeted Hilton specifically because she would leave her door unlocked.

One robbery netted $2 million worth of jewelry including “heirlooms that had been in her family for generations.”

Other celebrity victims of the “Bling Ring” included Lindsay Lohan, Audrina Patridge, Rachel Bilson, Orlando Bloom and Brian Austin Green.

The robberies took place from October 2008 to August 2009, and more than $3 million worth of high-end clothes, jewelry, art, cash and more were taken from stars.

“The Real Bling Ring: Hollywood Heist” premieres Sept. 21.

A rep for Netflix did not immediately return Page Six’s request for comment.
