Jessica Smith Mug ShotThey're all coming out of the woodwork now.

In an exclusive interview, former Laguna Beach "star" Jessica Smith â€" who pled guilty on misdemeanor DUI charges in early July, has enlightened us with some sound advice for a fellow drunk driving maniac, Lindsay Lohan.

"I think she needs real help, and not Promises-type of help with the massages and everything," the Laguna Beach grad told 24Sizzler.com Wednesday. "She needs to go to a real place to address her problem. The bottom line is she needs help. She keeps messing up."

We have no idea why the ex of Jason Wahler is commenting on this other than to get attention, but Smith says Lindsay shouldn't get off easy because of her star status:

"I think she deserves whatever she gets. If she gets off just because she's Lindsay Lohan, that's ridiculous. If someone slaps her on the wrist, and is like, ‘oh, you bad girl,' she'll never learn."

Jessica Smith was charged last March after a car she was driving slammed into another car, reportedly causing "great bodily injury" to people in both cars.

She was sentenced to three years probation and ordered to attend one MADD meeting and serve 80 hours of community service, and she says she's at peace with it.

"I drank and drove. There's no excuse for that. I think anything that I got, and had I said it was unfair, it would be ridiculous, because I did something wrong," Smith notes.

She was quick to draw a line between herself and Lindsay Lohan, however.

"My situation is different [from Lindsay's], because it's not like it was my third time. She's just out of rehab and she has an ankle bracelet. I think that's odd. I got 80 hours of community service and I didn't have anything on my record."

So does Lindsay Lohan deserve jail time?

"I would say sure, but jail is scary," Jessica Smith says. "Some people just don't belong in jail. You go crazy in jail. I thought it was unfair that Paris Hilton went to jail."

The 19-year-old, most famous for hooking up with Wahler (cheating on Lauren Conrad at the time) and for sticking around Laguna Beach far too long, says she feels for Lindsay.

"It was horrible. I can't imagine what she's going through. It was embarrassing for me, it must have been like 150 times worse for her... She should just ignore what people say."

Alright, then.

Jessica Smith says she's changed because of her DUI bust, stating "I barely drink anymore, because if anything was to happen when I was drunk, I would go to jail for 90 days... I learned my lesson... one way to show I've learned my lesson, is to show I've changed."

The attorney representing Jessica Smith, former star of MTV's Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County, entered a plea of guilty on misdemeanor DUI charges on behalf of Smith Monday.

Smith was sentenced to three years probation and ordered to attend one MADD meeting and serve 80 hours of community service.

Jessica Smith was charged in March after a car crash in which the vehicle she was driving slammed into the back of an Acura, causing "great bodily injury" to people in both cars.

The CHP report said her high level of intoxication, unsafe speed and wet roadways were conditions that led to the crash. Hey, at least one of the three wasn't a result of her idiocy.

This sexy Jessica Smith mug shot was released to the public after the incident.

While avoiding the Paris Hilton treatment (we're talking about getting her whiny ass locked up), Smith nonetheless amassed fines and penalties totaling more than $1,300.

Smith is most famous for dating deadbeat Jason Wahler on the reality hit, and for hooking up with him after they had broken up, ending his romance with Lauren Conrad.

Jessica Smith then officially became "that girl" who didn't leave town after high school and ended up dating Cameron Brinkman, a junior, during Season 3 of the show.

Once again, the incomparable Stephen Colbert has taken the time out of his hit Comedy Central show, The Colbert Report, to tackle more important issues. It's been a hell of a week. Who (and what) makes the latest edition of the "On Notice" board? Let's see...

It's impossible to argue with his selections. Divorce settlements are bad news all around (talking to you, Britney). And what's with everybody's fiancee getting knocked up before walking down the aisle? It's not just for Keri Russell and Amanda Peet anymore. Everybody's doing it this way. Was there some memo we didn't get?

As for the rest of the list...

  • It's the hair. What else could possibly keep Sanjaya Malakar on American Idol? Watching the guy is raw pain. Yet he stays. Every week. As our ears bleed. Literally.
  • We get it. Heather Mills has a prosthetic leg, yet is on a reality show about dancing! Amazing! Enough. Shouldn't science get the credit for making this possible, not the gold-digging former call girl?
  • Mortgage lenders are paying the price for issuing many thousands of home loans to borrowers with bad credit. If your credit is so poor that you can't qualify for low mortgage rates, should you really be buying a house at all? Think about it.
  • François-Henri Pinault, if you don't treat Salma Hayek right, we will end you.
  • What is it with Laguna Beach graduates and getting arrested? First Jason Wahler (x3), now Jessica Smith. This town should hire one of its less troubled alums, Lauren Conrad, to conduct an anti-DUI seminar.
  • Everyone's trying the pink hair thing. Scarlett Johansson. Kelis. Rachel McAdams. Joss Stone. In a word, it looks really friggin' lame. Get a life! Pink (the singer, not the color) is rolling in her grave.

Jason Wahler would be smiling if he could see this.

Our counterparts at TMZ have learned that troubled Laguna Beach star Jessica Smith has just been released from an Orange County jail after being charged with two misdemeanor counts of DUI.

Smith, 19, spent nearly three days behind bars after her arrest Monday on suspicion of felony driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and causing "great bodily injury" during a car crash on the Santa Ana Freeway near L.A. This hot Jessica Smith mug shot soon followed.

Man, everyone is getting busted for driving wasted these days. Nicole Richie, Paris Hilton, Vivica A. Fox, Taboo.

DUI is totally becoming the new stalking!

Jessica Smith had a blood alcohol level of .12, significantly above California's legal limit of .08. She's also underage, of course. Ouch.

TMZ reports that because Smith wasn't charged with a felony (unlike her loser ex-boyfriend), her bail was reduced from $100,000 to $5,000, but Smith was apparently unable to raise even the reduced sum until today.

Under the terms of her release, Smith has been ordered not to drink alcohol and to attend one AA meeting a week until her arraignment April 25. Maybe she and Britney Spears can go to the same meetings. Cute!

Jessica recently took some off from Orange County's Saddleback College to tour Europe as a spokesperson for the travel guide, "Let's Go."

She then returned to school (and Season 3 of Laguna Beach, loser), but that may change if she returns to the Big House instead! Oh snap!

Former Laguna Beach star Jessica Smith was arrested for driving under the influence on Monday on a freeway near Laguna Beach, the California Highway Patrol reports.

The 19-year-old Laguna Beach alumna was driving her 1999 Volkswagen Bug (loser!) with one other passenger inside when her car rear-ended an Acura.

The wreck was due to Jessica Smith's "level of intoxication, unsafe speed, and wet roadway conditions," a CHP statement read.

Well, at least one out of the three factors wasn't her fault. She was arrested on a felony DUI charge and booked at the Orange County Jail.

The driver of the Acura, Roy Hernandez of Lake Forest, Calif., sustained minor injuries. The passenger in Jessica Smith's car, Lindsay Cooper, 20, suffered minor injuries.

Smith is still being held in an Orange County jail. Her bail was set at $100,000, and she is due in court tomorrow morning. Maybe pal Kristin Cavallari can bail her out.

Smith dated co-star Jason Wahler on Season 2 of the show. After they broke up, the couple totally hooked up again - when he was seeing Lauren Conrad. Drama!

Then, last season, with all her classmates graduated, Jessica Smith was, like, totally "that girl" who hung around town and couldn't leave high school behind.

She appeared on Season 3 on a regular basis as the girlfriend of junior Cameron Brinkman... as long as his friends or other hookup possibilities weren't around.

Incidentally, Wahler was recently sentenced to jail time for his role in an assault case last year. Maybe he and Jessica can commiserate. Somehow we forgot to list Jessica in our Jason Wahler DUI sweepstakes. We also left off Taboo. Shame.
