Happy 90-day anniversary to Lindsay Lohan and her sobriety.

The troubled star finished her court-ordered 90-day stay in rehab today, and rumor has it that this time it just might stick. Sources close to Lindsay told TMZ they’re “shocked” at the change in her attitude, adding, ”It’s like invasion of the body snatchers. She’s a different person.”

Whoever snatched Lindsay’s body is taking good care of it: She’s reportedly requested a three- to four-day stay in a sober living facility after her exit from rehab. After that, sources say she plans to move back to New York, and that while scared of the temptations here, she’s ready to face them. She can come hang at my place if she gets tempted. I’m working my way through “The Wire.”

If you’re worried about Lindsay’s future — and I don’t know about you, but that’s been my constant emotional state for the past eight years or so — this news might be a ray of hope: On Lindsay’s new eight-part reality show on OWN, she’ll be mentored by Oprah herself.

That’s according to Lindsay’s mother Dina, at least. “Oh, it’s fantastic. If anyone is going to help mentor you, it’s going to be Oprah,” she told E! Online.
