She’s back!

On Tuesday night, actress Demi Moore made her first public outing since receiving treatment, for the launch of close friend Amanda De Cadenet’s new Lifetime TV show, The Conversation.

Demi, who donned a black sleeveless blazer and matching black pants, was all smiles as she posed for cameras alongside Amanda at the Beverly Hills, CA, event, and appeared to look much healthier than she did around the time of her hospitalization earlier this year.

This was a major outing for Demi, who has kept an extremely low profile since she filed for divorce from her husband of six years, Ashton Kutcher, in November, amid rumors that he had cheated on her.

The incident led to a series of tense moments for Demi, including extreme weight loss, a highly publicized hospitalization and, later, a stint at an undisclosed treatment center that forced her to drop out of the Linda Lovelace biopic Lovelace, in which she was to play feminist icon Gloria Steinem. (She was later replaced by Sarah Jessica Parker.)

After she left treatment in March, Demi reportedly enjoyed an island vacation with friends, and has since been laying low at her home in L.A. to focus on her life and career, according to People.

Meanwhile, Demi also made a big comeback on Twitter this week. Yesterday, the 49-year-old actress — who still uses her original Twitter handle, @mrskutcher — tweeted: “time for a change, twitter name change … any suggestions?” (Former Brat Pack costar Rob Lowe chimed in at one point, tweeting: “Sure. Debbie or Jules” — a reference to her character names in About Last Night and St. Elmo’s Fire, respectively.)

What do you think? Will Demi make a comeback, and what should she change her Twitter handle to? Sound off in the comments!
