Lindsay Lohan Leaves Rehab After Three Months
Lindsay Lohan is free.
Lohan, 27, originally checked into the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage, Calif., on May 2, as part of a plea deal after she allegedly lied to police in connection to her California car crash last June, violating her earlier probation. But about halfway through her 90-day stint, Lohan switched to Cliffside Malibu, a facility said to be better fit for longer-term treatment.
Now Lohan is primed for a career comeback. Her upcoming movie, the Paul Schrader-directed indie drama The Canyons co-starring adult film actor James Deen, opens on Friday (on iTunes and video on demand). It is also slated to screen at this year’s Venice Film Festival, which will kick off August 28.
But before then, Lohan will hit the small screen. She is set to take over E!’s Chelsea Lately on Monday, replacing host Chelsea Handler to interact with Handler’s sidekick, Chuy, and interview celebrity guests in what the network boasts to be an “all star event.”
Lohan will also sit down for her first post-rehab interview with Oprah Winfrey, set to tape and air on Aug. 18. Following the one-on-one, Winfrey’s network, OWN, will produce an eight-episode docu-series following Lohan as she works to rebuild her post-rehab career. The series will premiere in 2014.
