The troubled actress is about to be back in the headlines in a big way this month, starting with her release from her court ordered 90-day inpatient rehab, which is set to occur any day now.
E! announced Monday afternoon that Lohan's first post-rehab gig will be as a guest host on "Chelsea Lately" on Monday, August 5. She'll be taking over for regular host Chelsea Handler and "interacting with Chuy, running the roundtable, and interviewing a celebrity guest." "Chelsea Lately" airs weeknights at 11:00 p.m. on E!
The comes on top of the OWN network's announcement that Oprah Winfrey is set to sit down with the celebrity news headliner for a multi-part interview later set to air this month. Additionally, OWN will air an eight-party documentary series with Lohan sometime in 2014, which follows her journey to get her career back on track.
Lohan's new film, "The Canyons," debuts simultaneously in theaters, on pay-per-view, and on demand on August 2. The Film Society of Lincoln Center is hosting the film's world premiere on Monday night in New York City. There's no word yet on whether or not Lohan will attend, but it seems unlikely as there's no sign she's been released yet from rehab.
And the first review for the film was actually decent. Variety called it "handsomely made" and "hardly a joke." The review called out "Lohan’s fascinating presence, far closer to self-revelation than self-parody," adding that she "gives one of those performances, like Marlon Brando’s in 'Last Tango in Paris,' that comes across as some uncanny conflagration of drama and autobiography."
Lohan tweeted for the first time in almost a month Monday morning, saying the following:

This already certainly sounds a lot more promising than "Liz & Dick"!
