According to PopEater columnist Rob Shuter's sources, a cadre of Lindsay Lohan's favorite hair and makeup artists have been "put on call" for Thursday through Sunday this week—a sure sign, Shuter says, that Lohan is springing the coop this weekend.
Officials at the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department say that Lohan's earliest release date could possibly be August 1. What happens after she's checked out?
Once Lindsay is told she is free, it will take her around two hours to be processed. During this time she will be able to call her mother, Dina, to come and get her. After all the paperwork is signed, and her belongings returned, she would be free to leave. It is at this point her glam squad has its work cut out for them.Shuter says that when Paris Hilton was released from prison a few years ago, she had image experts choreograph her 30-second exit walk. Lohan has already started the planning process—she is slated to wear her own brand of 6126 leggings for the impending high-profile walk-of-shame (or, shall we call it, wall-of-fame?).
"There is a small, dirty public bathroom in the reception area that she will be allowed to use briefly before she leaves," an insider very familiar with Century Regional Correctional Facility tells me. "She will not be allowed to plug in a hairdryer and get a blow out and she can forget about using a flattening iron. There will be no full-length mirror and only if the corrections officers decide to be nice will they close the area to the public. Remember, everyone who works at that jail hates the press. They don't want to be bothered with all this nonsense and want to rid themselves of Lindsay as quickly as possible."
