Rodriguez will serve 60 days in a Los Angeles jail for a DUI-related probation violation. She showed up at LA Metro Court on Thursday with her lawyer to start her term.

Less than a day earlier, Rodriguez was videotaped walking outside of a book store on Melrose Avenue, where she told photographers she's not long for the U.S. "I'm moving to France," she says. "You know, people don't bother you there. I do what I got to do. Then I leave the country and never come back."
