So what's next? A whole lot, actually—beginning with a guest-hosting stint on Chelsea Lately Aug. 5. Yep, Linds will show off her comedy chops on the late-night show, hang with Chuy and finally be the interviewer, not the interviewee.
She'll also be catching up with Oprah Winfrey, giving the media mogul an in-depth interview about her time in rehab. And that's not all! OWN is producing an eight-part docu-series chronicling Lindsay on her mission to rebuild her career and stay sober.
She's got some movie promoting to do as well. The Canyons opens Aug. 2, and despite some harsh criticism and not-so-nice commentary from fellow cast and crew members, this means Lindsay is back in the news for her true love—acting! A source told E! News last month that she plans to attend the Venice Film Festival, which kicks off Aug. 28, for the movie's premiere.
When it comes to her personal life, Lindsay will surely be excited to catch up and spend some time with mom Dina, sister Ali and brothers Cody and Michael. And romantically? She was linked to The Wanted's Max George and NYC musician Avi Snow earlier this year, but both relationships fizzled out before she checked into rehab in May. She's probably too busy for boys right now, but you never know.
Most importantly, though, Linds got the help she needed (hopefully) and can move forward. That said, she wouldn't take back the troublesome parts of her past. In a pre-rehab interview with Piers Morgan, she explained, "I believe things happen for a reason…I live without regrets. There are certain things I have done, mistakes that I made, that I would change, but I don't regret them at all, because I've learned from them."
Let's hope that's the case!
