"It's not going to be the worst situation imaginable, far from it," Cole said, noting that she'll be separated from other inmates for her own protection. "It's just going to be boring basically."
At least Lohan will be cooped up with someone she knows -- sort of. The Los Angeles Times reported today that one of Lohan's inmates at the Lynwood jail is 19-year-old Alexis Neiers, whose "bling ring" of accused burglars targeted celebrity residences, including Lohan's Hollywood Hills home.
Neiers is currently serving a 180-day sentence for felony first-degree residential burglary of actor Orlando Bloom's home.
Of course, because Whitmore noted that Lohan "will be kept away from [the] general population" of the jail, they may not meet at all.
Lohan's surrender came two weeks after her tearful sentencing hearing, in which she sobbed as Judge Revel handed down her sentence.
Ten minutes late, clad in sunglasses that couldn't hide a steely glare, Lohan marched past a throng of photographers and glitter-throwing fans Tuesday for a preprison court hearing.
She sat through a brief courtroom discussion before Revel ordered that all cameras be shut off for Lohan's handcuffing. The actress stood, placed her hands behind her back, and let two deputies cuff her and lead her out of the courtroom without making a scene.
Not so for her estranged father. Michael Lohan shouted, "We love you, Lindsay," as she was escorted out. Lohan's mother, Dina, and younger sister, Ali, also watched as she was taken into custody.
From the courtroom, Lohan went to a courthouse holding facility before shipping off to the Lynwood facility. Before leaving the courthouse, she swapped out her jeans, sleeveless top, cropped jacket and corset belt for her new, albeit temporary, wardrobe: an orange jail jumpsuit.
Shawn Chapman Holley, who resigned as Lohan's lawyer after her July 6 sentencing, represented the actress at the hearing. She addressed reporters afterwards, saying that she stepped back into the Lohan case when the actress decided she did not want famed O.J. Simpson attorney Robert Shapiro to represent her.
"She's stepped up, she's accepted responsibility," Holley said about Lohan. "She's scared as anyone would be, but she's as resolute and she's doing it."
