Lindsay Lohan appears on "Ellen" this Monday, and -- don't worry -- we have clips. But she does indeed have a lot to say -- about dating, post-rehab, Wilmer Valderrama and Oprah.

Of the Queen, she calls her a "guiding force," which is what I guess Linds and I have in common: O is my guiding force, too.

Clips below, but here's a quick quote from her life in re-hab -- the sixth or seventh such stint ended last summer and, as you may know, she's been in a Sunday night "docuseries" on OWN charting her post-rehab life in New York, and the series has not exactly been burning up the Nielsens. This visit to "Ellen" may be some sort of stratagem, one assumes, to light a fire.

"When I went to Cliffside, I really wanted a moment for myself and I learned a lot of different tools and things that I didn’t in the past. In the past, a lot of it, people don’t know this, but I was sent to rehab to avoid you know, them trying to put me in jail. So it wasn’t something that I necessarily wanted or was ready for. It was something that it was kind of just going with the motions. And this was the first time where I went to Shawn Holley, my lawyer, and said look, I need some time. I need to figure something out. And it was through kind of, you know, meditation and learning different things that . . . and just growing up as well and being like I’m tired and I want to be working and all these other girls are doing this and I’ve been doing this my whole life …and maybe, you know, that’s what makes me happy. So I’m just going to do what I have to do to get there again." video platformvideo managementvideo solutionsvideo player
