July 23, 2010 — -- Lindsay Lohan may not be doing much in jail, but she's got a plan to bank a boatload of dough once she's set free.

According to Fox 411, before beginning her jail stint, Lohan managed to lock down post-sentence tell all interviews that will earn her seven figures. Expect a major TV sitdown once Lohan's false eyelashes and hair extensions are back in place.

Lohan's gotten a lot of visitors in her first few days at the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood, Calif. On Thursday, ex-girlfriend Samantha Ronson stopped by. The day before, Lohan's mother, Dina Lohan, and younger sister Ali paid her a visit. The pair were videotaped entering the detention center that afternoon.

Jail life's not easy for Lohan. According to, the starlet's struggling to find drinkable water, and according to People magazine, she's stuffed in a cell block with convicted murderers and felons. She's not allowed to smoke; her makeup's not welcome.

Lohan's lawyer maintains the actress is "doing the best she can."

Shawn Chapman Holley, who saw the startlet Tuesday, told People magazine that Lohan's "spirits aren't high" and she is "having a difficult time adjusting."

"She's trying to make the necessary adjustments to an extremely stressful and difficult situation," Holley said. "There were some tears. ... She's doing the best she can."

Former inmate Tiffany Hawes, who was being released as Lohan was entering the facility, told Britain's Daily Mail: "Lindsay was crying when she came in. She was handcuffed but seemed calm. We all started saying, 'God bless you Lindsay,' and saying 'Hi' to her and then she smiled at us."

Though she was sentenced to 90 days of jail and 90 days of in-patient rehab for violating her 2007 probation, Lohan's stint in the slammer could be as short as 13 days.

While she's behind bars, though, she will have to pay for the comforts of home. Lohan will have to buy her own deodorant ($2.50), tampons ($2.70) and razorless hair remover ($3.75), according to the detention center's product list obtained by TMZ.

Snacks will also cost her: $1.33 for a bag of pork cracklins hot, $0.85 for pepperoni beef stick and $0.92 for Ramen spicy shrimp.

Meanwhile, Lohan will be allowed to take prescription medications in jail, including the attention deficit disorder drug Adderall, according to TMZ. A probation report released earlier this month revealed that Lohan had a valid prescription for Adderall.

While the law may allow her to pop pills, her estranged father isn't pleased.

"She's got to get off prescription drugs," Michael Lohan said on CNN's "Larry King Live" Tuesday night. "I don't think jail is going to change her; I think she needs to change herself."

On Tuesday, L.A. County Sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore told the Los Angeles Times that because of good behavior, Lohan only needs to serve 51 days in jail. Whitmore noted that female, nonviolent prisoners do about 25 percent of their sentence because L.A. jails suffer from overcrowding, which brings Lohan's total time down to 13 or 14 days.

At a news conference outside the Lynwood facility Tuesday, Whitmore said Lohan "has been extremely cooperative" so far.

"As with any inmate, Lohan was treated just like any other," he added, noting that most inmates don't draw throngs of paparazzi. "Inside it's business as usual."
