Lindsay Lohan has arrived in New York City to begin rehearsals for Saturday Night Live, and while she's in the Big Apple, she'll be interviewed on The Today Show.
The 25-year-old is “very excited” to be hosting SNL, and also to give a no-holds-barred interview with a journalist she respects as part of her image rehabilitation.
The source says that Lindsay’s Today Show interview will air Thursday.
"Lindsay agreed to go on Today for a no holds barred interview ... She has tremendous respect for Matt Lauer, who will be doing the interview,” a source said.
“Lindsay is nervous about hosting SNL, but that is to be expected. She is grateful for the opportunity and won't let (executive producer) Lorne Michaels down.”
“Lindsay has been a longtime fan of Saturday Night Live and is incredibly excited to work with the amazing cast and writers," her rep, Steve Honig, adds.
Last week, Lohan got a glowing report and praise from the judge handling her theft case. Judge Stephanie Sautner said she's got "her life back on track."
If all goes according to plan, she could be off probation in April.
