Lindsay Lohan will complete her 90-day court-ordered rehab program on Wednesday, but the actress has decided to stay longer at the Cliffside Malibu treatment facility, according to TMZ.
Sources close to the actress told TMZ that the actress wanted to extend her stay for another four days in an attempt to buy a transition period before stepping out into the real world.
Lohan, reportedly, has made considerable progress in battling her addiction during her rehab stint, which has surprised her friends as well. "It's like invasion of the body snatchers. She's a different person," a source close to the actress told TMZ.
To ensure she does not get back into her old lifestyle, Lohan has decided to maintain distance with a good number of her friends as well. TMZ reported that Lohan has decided to cut off 80 friends from a list of 100, who she believes would lead her back to her old lifestyle.
Lohan is going to have a busy few months ahead of her once she leaves rehab, for E!Online reported that she would take over as a guest host on Chelsea Lately on August 5. It will be an all-stars event with Lohan interviewing a celebrity guest.
She has a number of other projects lined up as well, which includes an interview with Oprah Winfrey and a docu-series with Winfrey’s OWN network. Lohan’s latest movie, “The Canyons”, which stars porn actor James Deen opposite her, will also hit theaters on August 2.
The movie has not received positive reviews from critics, except from Variety magazine’s Scott Foundas, who praised Lohan’s performance. "Wow...humbled and feeling so much gratitude,” Lohan tweeted, posting the review on her Twitter account.
