Some the Maxim cover featuring Lindsay Lohan in a black and white bikini is a snide reference to her jail time, but one editor denies it, saying, "(Lohan) was really in the driving seat with the looks."

If Lindsay Lohan was worried about the possibility of going to jail, she didn’t let it show during an interview and photo shoot a few days before Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel sentenced her to 90 days in jail to be followed by rehab.

At the cover shoot for the latest issue of Maxim, on stands Aug. 10, Lohan was “philosophical” about her situation, according to Maxim West Coast editor Ruth Hilton, but the starlet remained professional.

“It’s obviously a really super difficult time for her, but on the other hand, it’s difficult for me to interpret on her behalf,” Hilton said. “She kind of accepted she had to get on with things. You have to do your best to get through it and get the best advice at every level.”

Hilton said Lohan brought her sister, Ali, and a couple friends to the Chateau Marmont location she requested for the June 30 shoot, the week before her sentencing. Hilton said that although Lohan has a reputation for high-maintenance antics at work, “she did not leave anyone in the lurch or anyone wanting or waiting.”

“She was great to work with. It’s the only shoot I’ve done where it finished early,” she said, adding that it was clear that the starlet’s working relationship with photographer Matt Jones and her previous modeling experience helped move things along.

One thing that’s stuck out, though, is the black and white stripped bikini Lohan donned for the cover. Some sites have suggested that Maxim might have put her in the suit as a snide reference to her jail time. Hilton dismissed the rumors, saying that Lohan specifically requested her stylist Lysa Cooper, but the starlet had a lot to say about the clothing she wore in the photos.

“(Lohan) was really in the driving seat with the looks,” Hilton said. “It’s an interesting coincidence.”

Hilton said the crew and the magazine staff all talked afterwards about how honest and professional Lohan was.

“The words in her piece are her own words, and I think maybe that’s what’s interesting about it,” Hilton said. “Finally, she has talked about it. I think if people are reading the press and reading the media, these photos are who she really is. She is looking healthy, she is looking happy, and she really has her mind set on getting through this.”

Betty White, hardest working woman in TV
“I’m so sick of Betty White,” Cloris Leachman joked at the Television Critics Association while promoting her new show, “Raising Hope.” “Never liked her.”

At 88 years old, Betty White just might be the hardest working woman in television. But just how many shows has she logged since Jan. 1, 2010? Here’s a quick run through the numbers:

  • TV episodes in which she’s appeared as an actor: 13 (12 of those have aired: 10 episodes among “Hot in Cleveland,” “The Middle” and “Storyline Online.” Her guest turn in “Community” has yet to air.)
  • Hosting gigs: 1 (“Saturday Night Live”)
  • Late night appearances: 6 (3 episodes of “Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” one each of “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, “Lopez Tonight,” and “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson”)
  • Talk shows: 8 (Twice on both the “Daily Show with Jon Stewart” and “Larry King Live,” plus “The 7PM Project,” “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” “The Bonnie Hunt Show” and “The View.”)
  • Awards shows: 3 (MTV Movie Awards, TV Land Awards, Screen Actors Guild Awards)

What could be next for White? Maybe “Desperate Housewives,” according to creator Marc Cherry.

“I would love to have Betty (White) on the show,” he said at a Television Critics Association panel on July 27. "She’s a saucy, sexy gal and she’s a blast. It’s something that would make my heart very happy,” he said.

But even he’s having a hard time getting some one-on-one time with her to discuss the project. “She's constantly employed,” he said. “I'm trying to just see if I can get her for dinner. She works harder than any of us.”

How to hook up with The Situation
The taping of the third season of “Jersey Shore” is under way in Seaside Heights, N.J., and on July 29, Life & Style’s Scene Queens went to Karma nightclub, where the show was filming. The biggest revelation to come out of the experience is that the men of “Jersey Shore” weren’t allowed to interact with just anyone.

“We saw producers draw black dots on the hands of girls deemed worthy enough to talk to the cast. (They also had to be willing to sign release forms to be on television. Anyone without the mark was strictly off-limits to speak to on camera,” according to the Scene Queens.

A source close to the show said that the women aren’t the only ones clamoring to get on the show. Guys who were on hand that same night got into it over getting some time in front of a camera.

“The cast has to be more careful because everyone knows them now,” a source close to the show told the Scene Queens. “Some of the guys, like the Situation, will have four to six security guys with them to stop people from approaching.”

Sounds dramatic, but the formula is working. “Jersey Shore” season two debuted with 5.3 million viewers.

    >> reporter: lohan's previous adventures in rehab -- three at least -- have been less than successful. she's relapsed, all while trying to find work.

    >> the hollywood cliche is that hollywood loves a comeback. that's true. if lindsay can clean herself up, she can think about coming back professionally.

    >> reporter: her latest effort, a spoof of marilyn monroe in a soon to be released film called "underground comedy 2010 ".

    >> the most offensive movie ever made.

    >> reporter: it may be a bit part with a biting message.

    >> lindsay lohan settles the score with the media.

    >> reporter: that scene was shot just before lohan's jail sentence . her alcohol monitoring bracelet clearly visible. it may not have helped. the judge hopes rehab will.

    >> reporter: lohan's attorney asked the judge for breathing room, 24 hours , before leaving the facility and headed to rehab, but apparently the judge thought that was a luxury lohan didn't deserve.

    >> lee, thanks.

    >>> donny deutsch is from an agency in new york city and dr. julie holland is a psychiatrist and author of "weekends at bell view." good morning to you.

    >> good morning.

    >> dr. holland , let me start with you. based on your experience and what we know about lindsay lohan 's situation, can you describe what may be her state of mind after 13 daily planeys in jail?

    >> i think some people were expecting a paris hilton -like breakdown. that didn't happen. she survived being alone with herself which is a good first step. now she's got a lot of work to do. now the work begins. she's got a good three months of rehab ahead of her. hopefully she'll do well.

    >> can you describe what will happen in rehab and what her chances are of recovery?

    >> reporte

    >> it depends on the program. a lot of rehabs are 12-step-oriented. what might be good is something called a dual diagnosis where they look not only at drug and alcohol abuse but look and see if there are other things going on psychologically. if she has depression, attention deficit disorder , bipolar disorder . there may be more than just alcohol and drugs here. you need a certain amount of time off medicines, off drugs to see what she looks like, what her baseline is. then you know what you're dealing with.

    >> dr. holland , i want to bring donny deutsch into this. a lot of people watching have been rolling their eyes, including at the media for our coverage of the story. is it possible that lindsay lohan could emerge from this a winner, that she should -- if she can prove that she's better?

    >> i'm going to be cynical. as a dad, this is a sad story. but i want to talk about the cold, hard business. right now, if you cast her in a movie. if an a director gets ahold of her where is there more appeal, a movie with her or natalie portman who's on the straight and narrow? we celebrate this stuff. robert downey , jr. she's an actress with chops. people in hollywood believe she can act. if she can get her act together she'll be bigger than ever. this is a crazy world .

    >> but it's not as if -- if someone has talent like robert downey , jr., we forgive them and want to see the talent. if she didn't have talent that's a different story.

    >> different story. she's a great actress and i can say, you know, this could be a plot for a great career move. look at britney spears . this is almost a model now. this is the crazy world we live in. there is so much heat on her, but she needs a serious director who's going to bet on her. she needs that guidance. i think she'll be bigger than ever.

    >> part of what's in her favor is she's young. people see she may have an opportunity as she grows up. dr. holland , what can you tell us in terms of the support she's going to need, however, to get that. what she's about to go through is very difficult. can you describe just how?

    >> you know, i think one of the things that might be helpful for her that they do in rehab is they treat the family as a unit. they treat the patient as part of a dysfunctional family . that might be helpful for her, is to pull the parents in.

    >> dr. holland , thank you. donny
