We never thought we would see the day when Lindsay Lohan acts, well, responsible.
After entering rehab for the 7th time in early May, Lohan will be finally free to leave the facility on July 31. But according to sources obtained by TMZ, Lohan wants to stay another 3 to 4 days because she wants a transition period before re-entering the real world. The source also states that Lohan plans to live in a "lower-level, sober living house."
This definitely doesn't sound like the hard-partying Lohan we have unfortunately grown to know. In the words of TMZ's source: "It's like invasion of the body snatchers. She's a different person."
We're happy Lohan is ready to turn over a new, sober leaf, but is the starlet actually serious about recovery this time around? It's hard to believe her after all the times she landed back in jail or rehab after vowing to stay clean.
Lohan has a busy schedule ahead of her when she leaves the facility, leaving us to wonder if she setting herself up for failure.
The actress is scheduled to sit down with Oprah Winfrey for an OWN interview, which will air in late August. She has also signed on to film a docu-series about her life for the same network. Plus, E! just announced that Lohan will guest host for Chelsea Handler's Chelsea Lately on August 5. But that's not all. Her latest film, The Canyons, will hit theaters on August 2 -- so we are sure there will be even more promo before that is released.
Co-hosting is no easy feat, and neither is being back in the public eye with the media and public just waiting to scrutinize the young star. All of the pressure to succeed may prove to be too hard for Lohan, which can force her to return to her hard-partying ways to find relief.
Then again, this may be just what Lohan needs. By immersing herself in her work, she will be so focused on her new projects that hitting the club at 3 a.m. won't even cross her mind.
We're not sure what the future holds for Lohan, but we hope we don't experience some LiLo deja vu.
