In Sales’ 2013 book The Bling Ring: How a Gang of Fame-Obsessed Teens Ripped Off Hollywood and Shocked the World, Prugo was quoted as saying, “We were in Rachel’s [Bilson’s] bathroom and Rachel [Lee] just had to go, so she just…yeah. I remember the incident so well. I can recall the smell, which is really nasty, disgusting,” according to The Huffington Post.

On the podcast, Bilson said she never saw The Bling Ring film. She also said she was robbed again, by different perpetrators, about three years ago.

“I was robbed at the house I was renting,” she said. “And at that point, I was like, it really teaches you to detach yourself from material possessions. I literally was like, ‘Well, here we go again. All right.'”

She added, laughing, “The thing I’ve like, trained myself not to get too attached. It’s not fun, but it’s at least it’s a good lesson.”

Bilson said the possessions that were stolen for her were not returned. “And I’m like, who’s wearing a size five shoe?” she joked. “Like, what are you going to do with these shoes, people? Give it back!”
