(Newser) – Lindsay Lohan, meet your prison neighbor: Alexis Neiers, a member of the “Bling Ring” jailed for burglarizing celebrity homes…including LiLo’s. If that’s not awkward enough, more details from LiLo’s new life behind bars:

  • Despite her celebrity status, she was probably subjected to a strip search as soon as she arrived—former inmate Piper Kerman calls it "the squat and cough" in a Daily Beast column on what LiLo can expect.
  • Upon entering the Lynwood jail, Lindsay would have received a baggie of “generic and cheap quality” toiletries, a former inmate tells People.

  • But anything she had on her when she arrived was taken away—including her copy of The Old Man and the Sea. A source tells Radar her family will order her a replacement copy—inmates can receive books if they come directly from an online retailer.
  • While she waits, she can watch TV shows like I Love Lucy and Wheel of Fortune through the window on her cell door, the former inmate says.
  • She can also take her prescription drugs, including Adderoll and Ambien—sources tell TMZ her prescriptions were being processed yesterday.
  • Her dinner last night was turkey tetrazzini, applesauce, broccoli coleslaw, wheat bread, and milk, TMZ reports.
  • Her first visitor was attorney Shawn Chapman Holley, who tells People Lindsay is “having a difficult time adjusting” and “there were some tears.”
