On Tuesday evening, Lindsay Lohan will return to the spotlight in her new reality television series Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club on MTV. Ahead of the premiere, the Mean Girls star spoke with Entertainment Tonight about what it’s like to run her own chain of beach resorts/nightclubs given her party-filled past.

The actress is now the owner of two larger international resorts: Lohan Beach House Mykonos on the Greek island, which the reality series will feature, and Lohan Beach House Rhodes in Ialisos Beach, Rhodes. Despite the businesses’ success so far, critics have wondered if working in nightlife will dig up Lohan’s previous life of heavy partying and embarrassing tabloid moments.

“That was so in my past,” Lohan said of the several headlines she appeared in after nights out with friends in the early 2000s. “Most of my friends [now], actually, who own nightclubs and stuff aren’t drinkers or anything.”

The actress had spent time in rehab on several occasions and ran into trouble with the law for cocaine possession, theft, a DUI, and a hit-and-run. She was involved in court hearings and earned jail time, as well as a period on house arrest, according to Variety. Lohan now insists that her past stays in the past, as it was 10 years ago and she is different now.
