LYNWOOD, Calif. (CBS/AP) Actress Lindsay Lohan may spot a face she recognizes amongst the sea of orange that floods her humble current abode: reality TV personality and member of the "Bling Ring" crew, Alexis Neiers.

Lohan was taken to the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood, Calif. Tuesday morning to begin serving her 90-day sentence for violating her DUI probation.

Neiers, no longer a rookie to the correctional system, began serving her 180-day sentence last month after she pleaded no contest to a first-degree residential burglary charge of actor Orlando Bloom's home, reported local station KTLA. Neiers is also accused of breaking into Lohan's Hollywood Hills estate.

Chances are the two won't be chatting it up in the yard together, as Lohan will be isolated in the 2,200-bed facility's special needs unit for her own safety.

According to Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department spokesperson, Steve Whitmore, Lohan could potentially serve about 25 percent of her sentence thanks to jail overcrowding and a state program that rewards inmates for good behavior.There have been reports that she may serve as little as two weeks.

For Neiers, E!'s "Pretty Wild" socialite, this is likely not the case. She is expected to serve her full sentence and, according to Neiers' lawyer Jeffery Rubenstein, life in the joint isn't so grand. Rubenstein said Neiers was having trouble adjusting to her solitary life, from the "really bad food" to her inconsistent sleep - apparently she is woken up throughout the night.

Rubenstein visited Neiers last Tuesday and said that people were giddy about Lohan's potential arrival.

If all works in Lohan's favor she could be released in time for the premiere of her latest action-thriller movie "Machete," which stars Lohan as a nun.
