Pretty Wild star Alexis Neiers – who was released from jail Friday after serving 30 days for burglarizing Orlando Bloom's home – says Lindsay Lohan wasn't coping well in the slammer.
In an E! News interview airing Monday, Neiers says she crossed paths with the actress, 24, at the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood, Calif., but they never talked.
"I did see her … no words," says the E! reality star, 19. "She had an officer with her at all times."
Lohan was located in the cell next to Neiers', but she was housed in "a separate pod," she says. "We were in protective custody, so it's not like anyone can get near you. I just saw her a couple times…."
The first day was the toughest. "She was talking to deputies and, you know just trying to — I couldn't really like make it out – but from what I saw the first day, I mean, she was lying in there and just trying to like calm down," she adds.
Hopefully the jail experience will be as eye-opening for Lohan as Neiers says it was for her.
"I wasted my life," says Neiers, who still has to serve three years of probation and pay $600,000 in restitution. "And I found a lot of things I wanted to do in life, and I was able to strip away the negativity."
