Lindsay Lohan, Dina Lohan Splash News

Dina Lohan couldn't be happier that Lindsay Lohan is going to work for Oprah Winfrey.

Turning up at Real Housewives star Jill Zarin's first annual Luxury Ladies' Luncheon presented by the European Wax Center, the troubled starlet's mom dished to E! News about the eight-part reality series Lohan's doing for OWN that will chronicle her journey to rebuild her career once she's out of rehab.

"Oh, it's fantastic. If anyone is going to help mentor you, it's going to be Oprah," Dina told us over the weekend.

Asked whether she'll appear on the program, the elder Lohan hinted that was a likely scenario.

"Possibly! It's about family…and I'm family," she said.

As for how LiLo is doing as she finishes up her last few weeks in treatment, Dina noted her daughter's in a really good place.

"She's happy, she's healthy and she's amazing. She's doing really well," she said.

Lohan also denied rumors that Lindsay was going to go back to living with her at the family's home on Long Island.

"Lindsay is 27, my kids all have their own places," Dina told us. "She's not going to move back home. She'll be getting an apartment in New York. She'll be in New York. It's great because [sister Ali] is in New York with Wilhelmina models. [Son] Michael is in New York. My other little guy [son Dakota] is 17 and he's still at home and going to St. Anthony's. The rest may come home to mom, but they don't want to live with me."

Lohan's scheduled to sit down with Winfrey for an in-depth interview as soon as she completes the 90-day court-ordered stint in rehab next month, which she received as part of a plea deal stemming from misdemeanor charges following a June 2012 car wreck.  The actress is also expected to make her first post-rehab appearance walking the red carpet at The Canyons premiere at the Venice Film Festival.

Lohan's docu-series is scheduled to air on the cable network in 2014.
