She was sentenced to two months in jail, a $150,000 fine and 150 hours of community service, while fashion designer Giannulli, 57, received five months in jail, a $250,000 fine and 250 hours of community service.
TMZ reports that the prison calls for a wake-up call of 5 am. The prison also requires her to make her bed and tidy her cell. She can be disciplined for sloppiness, sleeping in or missing meal time. She will also get a gig: clerical work, cooking, baking or dishwashing are all up for grabs.
