Hungry for attention and desperately afraid we stopped caring, Lindsay Lohan has accepted OK!’s generous offer for her exclusive post-rehab first interview and of course is saying all the right things. She also happily posed for photos. Not surprisingly, her father did too.

Still, in spite of the incorrigible famewhoring, there is cause for optimism. First, Lilo remains as of press time in Utah receiving outpatient care instead of booking it immediately back to LA to reclaim The Life. And of course she’s saying all the right things…so far. Insisting that she’s been humbled by the experience, Lindsay explains:

"I hit rock bottom. Everything in my life came to a point where I had to make a decision. It made me look at myself, and all of the people, places and things in my life in a different way. I was in there for substance abuse, after all."

And, as she is well aware, relapse is a part of recovery. So what of the evils in Hollywood and how will she fight them?

"If I wasn"t worried, I"d be living in denial. Temptation is always there, but now I"ll avoid it in the right way."

Indeed, word is she’s attempted to cut off the sycophants and losers that have surrounded her for the better part of two years which, if true, is a good start, though I can still hear that mother of hers tapping her foot in the background, waiting impatiently for the next paycheque.

PS. The father - I can"t. I can"t go there. I can"t go there without wanting to pour boiling water all over my body and scalding the icky away.
