Video: What will life in lockup be like for Lohan?

  1. Transcript of: What will life in lockup be like for Lohan?

    MEREDITH VIEIRA, co-host: We are back at 8:09 with the first messages from Lindsay Lohan since she was sentenced to 90 days in jail. Last night on Twitter , Lohan wrote to a friend about that expletive that was on her middle finger, saying, "Didn't we do our nails as a joke with our friend DC ? It had nothing to do with court . It's an airbrush design from a stencil." Later she tweeted this, perhaps a reference

    to her own punishment: "No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment." So what will Lohan 's life be like behind bars? Here's NBC's George Lewis .

    GEORGE LEWIS reporting: Lindsay Lohan looked shocked as she was sentenced.

    Unidentified Judge: That's 90 days in jail.

    LEWIS: Ninety days at the Linwood Women 's Facility south of downtown Los Angeles . And what's life at this place going to be like for Lohan ?

    Ms. WENDY FELDMAN: I would tell her, get ready to just give it all up.

    LEWIS: Wendy Feldman , a former stock broker who went to federal prison for securities fraud, now councils people on how to survive jail time.

    Ms. FELDMAN: She will be confined, and that will be very, very difficult.

    LEWIS: Lohan will be housed alone in a 12-by-eight-foot jail cell like this one, with her own toilet and wash basin. She won't be permitted to use her cell phone or the Internet , no Twitter . The sheriff's department plans to keep her apart from the rest of the prisoners for her own protection. A probation report just made public notes Lohan has been using a number of prescription drugs , including the stimulant Adderall for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and the pain killer Dilaudid , prescribed by a dentist who removed her wisdom teeth last month. Now it will be up to authorities to decide whether Lohan gets to continue using those prescriptions.

    FELDMAN: Everybody knows your business. And the bottom line is how you going to recover? What are you going to do after this?

    LEWIS: Paris Hilton did time at the same jail three years ago for violating her probation.

    Ms. PARIS HILTON: The most humiliating experience of my life.

    LEWIS: After she got out, Hilton told CNN 's Larry King about that experience.

    Ms. HILTON: I was having severe panic attacks, anxiety attacks, my claustrophobia was kicking in.

    LEWIS: When actors in trouble for drugs and alcohol throw themselves on the mercy of the court ...

    Ms. LINDSAY LOHAN: I did do everything that I was told to do and did the best I could to, you know, balance jobs and showing up. I'm sorry.

    LEWIS: ...it just doesn't seem to work. After Tom Sizemore made this emotional statement a few years back...

    Mr. TOM SIZEMORE: I deserve a second chance, sir. Thank you.

    LEWIS: ...he got more than a year in jail, plus rehab . Some do turn their lives around. After jail and rehab , Robert Downey Jr. kicked his heroin habit and resumed his successful movie career. Mr. ROBERT DOWNEY JR .: It's about hopefully we're leaving here to bring ourselves back to our lives as more principled people.

    LEWIS: And now the same challenge awaits Lindsay Lohan . For TODAY, George Lewis , NBC News, Los Angeles .

    VIEIRA: So will jail time and rehab help Lindsay Lohan save her career? MSNBC.com media analyst Steve Adubato is the author of "What Were They Thinking?" and Dr. Julie Holland is a psychiatrist and drug expert and the author of "Weekends at Bellevue." Good morning to you both.

    Mr. STEVE ADUBATO (Media Analyst, MSNBC.COM): Good morning, Meredith .

    Dr. JULIE HOLLAND (Psychiatrist Drug Expert): Good morning.

    VIEIRA: Julie , if I -- good morning. If I can start with you. In March of this year, Lindsay Lohan said about her stints in rehab -- she referred to them as a vacation. Do you think that jail will force her to take the severity of her situation more seriously?

    Dr. HOLLAND: Well, I think hopefully it will do that. And I imagine that's what the judge is thinking. I mean, the judge has said that she's been deflecting blame and not really taking responsibility for her behavior, so she'll have some time to really think about that and hopefully take personal accountability for what's been going on.

    VIEIRA: Yeah. And she'll follow this 90 days in jail with 90 days in a rehab center. Back in 2007 , I believe it was, she spent 45 days in rehab and then two weeks after getting out she was arrested for DUI and possession of cocaine. So you have to wonder how successful these rehab programs are.

    Dr. HOLLAND: Right. Well, you know, the rehab -- the whole recovery industry really is -- sort of is in crisis right now. I mean, they've got an abstinence-based model, which is a little bit outdated. It may make more sense for them to embrace a harm reduction model where abstinence isn't necessarily the goal, but what you look for is a healthier behavior, a safer behavior, incremental changes that you can get behind instead of insisting on abstinence.

    VIEIRA: Well...

    Dr. HOLLAND: I mean, most people are in and out of rehabs. I mean, it's a chronic illness, there's relapses, there's recovery.

    VIEIRA: But if you're an addict...

    Dr. HOLLAND: It's not uncommon. She...

    VIEIRA: ...can -- if you're an addict, can you be a little bit of an addict? I mean, are you suggesting just give them a little bit of alcohol or a little bit of drugs?

    Dr. HOLLAND: It's not -- it's -- the problem is that these abstinence-based rehab programs aren't having very high success rates because the benchmark for success is total abstinence . And it may make sense to just, you know, applaud any changes toward health, any changes toward growth and to embrace a more harm reduction-oriented model.

    VIEIRA: OK, anything that may help her along the way. Steve , I want to talk about her career at this point. Movie producers , so far they're saying they're sticking with her. Is that a good idea?

    Mr. ADUBATO: Well, look, I understand them saying that, Meredith , because that's what they have to say publicly. But let's be candid here. In a difficult economy, would you invest $50 million on a movie with Lindsay Lohan being the lead character? Would you do that, given her track record? Would you do that given the fact that she couldn't even do the court -mandated appearances she was supposed to do? She missed not one, two, three, four, five -- seven of them. Her excuses are sickening. They get old, they get tired. `I didn't know. Oh that wasn't -- I didn't mean that on my finger.' My point is this. If you're a movie producer , if you're someone who's investing your life's blood into this, she's not the one you're going to invest in. My advice to her is do some independent stuff, do some things that there's not a lot of money involved for yourself. But she has to rehabilitate herself physically, emotionally, psychologically. And in terms of her career, forget about a big movie. That should be the last thing on her mind.

    VIEIRA: So should she model herself after somebody like a Robert Downey Jr. ?

    Mr. ADUBATO: Like a Robert Downey -- the problem was Robert Downey Jr. had a great track record as an adult actor. So even though he seriously -- he had a serious problem, we saw that he did really good things as an actor. She, I mean, was -- you know, there was " Freaky Friday ," there was " Mean Girls ." But it's been years since she has been a success. When she said she was working, in court , I'm thinking, `What were you doing?' Being filmed and having the paparazzi take your picture, that's not working. Working is what we're doing. She hasn't been working. My point is, she doesn't have a reputation as a working actress, and that's a terrible thing. Her brand is in serious trouble. You don't need me to say that. I would argue that the has to do some things off -- way off Broadway , some films...

    VIEIRA: To rebuild the brand essentially.

    Mr. ADUBATO: Slowly, and prove that she can get through a job. These excuses have to end, and people are getting tired of it.

    VIEIRA: And, Julie , what does she need to do -- first thing she needs to do to make this rehab work this time?

    Dr. HOLLAND: Well, she has to really want to make changes, and she has to sort of accept that she has a problem and she's got to work it. I think, you know, the court -- she's had a couple of court -ordered rehabs that really didn't go very well. She started using again as soon as she got out. So, you know, the first thing is she may be in denial, and she really has to accept that she's got a problem and she needs help.

    VIEIRA: And what about the people around her, the enablers? How does she avoid them?

    Dr. HOLLAND: Right. I mean, we've talked about this with other, you know, child stars who get a lot of attention, a lot of adulation, and people are giving them drugs, they want to party with them. It's going to be very -- she's really going to have to make huge changes in her life and how she spends her time if she wants to stay sober.

    VIEIRA: All right.

    Mr. ADUBATO: And it seems to me she has to acknowledge that she has hit rock bottom. And after watching her in court , I hate to call it a performance, it was an embarrassing performance. And she doesn't appear to in any way, Meredith , believe that she is recountable, she is responsible, because there's a million reasons why -- everyone did -- she didn't do it. Take responsibility.

    VIEIRA: Well, we all hope that she does that...

Two doctors will interview Lindsay Lohan to determine the best type of program for the star, according to court documents.
Access Hollywood
updated 7/7/2010 9:14:41 PM ET 2010-07-08T01:14:41

Lindsay Lohan will undergo an evaluation from Drs. Kaushal Sharma and Adam Weisman, Access Hollywood has learned.

Sharma, a psychiatrist according to TMZ, and Weisman, listed as a psychologist on Psyris.com, will “interview” the jail-bound star and “submit an opinion as to best type of program for the defendant,” according to a minute order from Tuesday’s court hearing obtained by Access.

The “interview” will also determine “whether alcohol has adverse reaction with (Lohan’s) prescriptions.”

Access Hollywood: What will her time in jail be like?

According to a probation officer’s report also obtained by Access, those prescriptions include Nexium, Zoloft, Trazadone, Adderall and “sometimes Dilaudid for dental pain.”

The report states that those prescriptions have caused her to test positive for amphetamines and/or opiates on several occasions, which was thus “not a violation of probation.”

As for how long Lohan has used prescription drugs, the report states that “the defendant indicates she has been on the same prescription medication for as long as she can remember.”

Access Hollywood: Kim Kardashian sends love to Lindsay

Lohan’s father, Michael Lohan, has long alleged that his daughter was using prescription drugs, claiming to Access back in October 2009, “I think once you’re on the prescription medication long enough, medically you become addicted to it. ... I can’t get into what the medications are.”

As for the actress' current condition, Sharma reportedly told TMZ that he will spend at least a few hours with Lohan — potentially half a day. Weisman was not immediately available for comment when contacted by Access on Wednesday afternoon.

As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, on Tuesday, Lohan was sentenced to 90 days in jail for violating her probation. She must turn herself into the court by July 20.

In other Lohan ay news, Access confirmed on Wednesday that her mother, Dina Lohan, had arrived in Los Angeles after being notably absent from Tuesday’s court session, which was attended by Lohans’s father, Michael, and sister, Ali.
