I think this just reinforces the celebrity bubble theory. LL has been on television pretty much consistently since she was 15-16 years old. She's spent 35+ years being told how wonderful she is, how people love her, etc. The day to day life that 99% of us deal with has never been in her wheel house. That makes me sad for her. In the end, what she did was wrong and illegal, which comes with penalties, including losing a career and perhaps trying to figure out how to make an orange jumpsuit look fashion forward. Real life can be a huge kick in the teeth.
I am very curious how they are going to write her character off the show.
