Just after escaping the "detrimental" Betty Ford Center, the troubled starlet was all smiles when she was spotted taking a smoke break with some new friends at her temporary new digs at Cliffside Malibu.
30 days of clean living (minus the cancer sticks) is doing gurlfriend good! We can't even remember the last time we've seen her look so peaceful and put together.
We can't even begin to imagine the fiery glow that she'll strut down the red carpet for the Venice Film Festival's The Canyons premiere in August.
Let's just hope that after all the facility dramz, Cliffside will FINALLY give LiLo the help she needs over the next 60 days so she can kick her icky demons for good!!!
You know what they say: "It works if you work it!"
