You would think the "Showbiz Tonight" staff would be jumping out of their seats when news broke that Lindsay Lohan was thrown back in the slammer today! But most of the producers just shook their heads and continued to work on the broadcast for tonight. Was it really any surprise that Lindsay would be back behind bars? Apparently not.
The in-house TVs at HLN were tuned into the frenzy of reporters camped outside of the Beverly Hills Courthouse, including "Showbiz Tonight’s" Kareen Wynter, and inside was CNN wire reporter, Alan Duke. Shortly after noon, Alan furiously informed us that Lindsay was being thrown back in the slammer!
Emails and phone calls streamed in from "Showbiz Tonight" producers and reporters on the scene who told us that Lindsay was hauled off in handcuffs and headed for jail. Alan said the Judge shut down Lindsay’s attorney’s request to be heard and minutes later, the familiar footage of a dark car carrying Lindsay off to jail appeared on our in-house feeds.
Our intern, Kecia, saw the footage and simply said, “It’s sad.” I asked her what she meant and she said she thought it was sad because Lindsay seems so lost. A lot of people would say jail might be what Lindsay needs to straighten up, but the question we were all asking in the newsroom today is – will Lindsay learn her lesson being back behind bars? Or should she have been sent back to rehab? You can weigh in on the Lindsay debate in the Showbiz Exclusive Poll:

Lindsay’s not the only story breaking today – there is also big Miley Cyrus news! Miley just released a shocking new video answering some big burning questions today including – does she want breast implants and is she engaged? We’ve got the video and all the latest entertainment news live at 5 p.m. ET today on HLN. And remember, we're still TV's most provocative entertainment news show seven days a week at 11pm ET/PT!
