Biggest Headlines of 2008: Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson's Relationship

Biggest Headlines of 2008: Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson's Relationship

We've been counting down the biggest headlines of 2008, and we'll be revealing more throughout the month of December. We hope you enjoy this look back at some of the posts and stories that created the most buzz throughout the year.

Lindsay Lohan found love this year, only it wasn't in the form we were originally expecting. Instead, her friendship with Samantha Ronson turned into more as the two women went from attached at the hip BFFs to a lot more. You wouldn't know it from the way Lindsay finished off 2007 — a trio of men in Italy, drinking on camera, which had you all convinced she was on a downward spiral again. By Spring, however, we were seeing a lot more of her shopping and dining with DJ Samantha than falling out of the club at the end of the night and creating scandals. Still, it took her — and us — a long time to tentatively talk about the coupledom, until LL's independent streak and desire to speak her mind won out and everyone learned of Lindsay Lohan's new love.

This wasn't the first time that we saw Lindsay and Samantha spending a lot of time together, in fact Samantha got a bad reputation for facilitating her 2007 downward spiral and most of you didn't think she would keep Lindsay out of trouble. By May, it became more clear that if anything Samantha was a stabilizing influence on Lohan, as the girls were spotted meeting each other's families. At the end of the month Lindsay nuzzled up to Samantha at Cannes only fueling relationship rumors. It heated up over the Summer as Samantha joined LL on the set of Labor Pains and the girls celebrated birthdays and spent every second together.

By August, the only drama in their relationship seemed to be caused by Michael Lohan who felt the need to rant about Samantha to the media. The girls fought back on their MySpace blogs and just about the only upside to that was we got two of our favorite celebrity bloggers out of it. The girls have kept us updated frequently the past few months on how they're feeling about everything from politics to relationships to clearing up any breakup rumors.

From party to party, it seemed if you hired Samantha to DJ, Lindsay would be part of the package. The girls supported each other and their families like watching Charlotte Ronson's Fashion Week show. Lindsay's publicist tried to deny the girls were more than friends, but LL herself opened up about it eventually. Not to mention, of course, seeing them kiss.

At the end of September, Lindsay and Samantha headed off for a romantic weekend in Cabo together full of bikini lounging. While Lindsay Lohan's movie career is still in a bit of a rut, her legging line is selling well and she seems happier and more stable than ever with Samantha by her side. It may not be what we expected to see from Lindsay in 2008, but it's been a pleasant surprise to watch her genuinely in love with someone who cares about her right back. We'll see what 2009 brings for LL and SR, but for now they're just enjoying the ride.

This love has been going on for a while. More or less for the past 6 years off and on. Till this day I truly believe Lindsay was in a self destructive path because she was confused. Imagine being young, in demand, sexy star who carters to a heterosexual world and not be able to just be yourself. I'm happy for her and I'm happy she's in love.

I was really wary of this relationship at first, but they do seem happy together. I don't think it will last forever, but i guess they are just enjoying the ride for right now.

I belive that a real, authentic and genuine love can change a person and I think that LL is a different person today, more stronger, more balanced ,more focused in her priorities and genuinely loved. SR will remain as one the best things that happen in her life. I hope Lindsay doens't SR let go and vice versa because they are so good for each other. SR seems a strong influence and gives lindsay, love,protection, friendship, loyalty and balance in life. For me they are the best couple of 2008, they seem very commitment to each other and they seem to have a very strong relationship. I sincerely hope the BEST for them in 2009, full of love, happiness and peace. many people are rooting for this couple,I'm one of them Good Luck girls!

Great article Moly,and she has taken weight lately,attending her driving lessons and iam also glad her relationship with Samantha seems strong.They are i believe will be celebrating a yea together in february if what Samantha told friends is true,that they are together in a commited relationship from February 2008.I do hope they get some rest though.Samantha has had such a heavy scedule travelling around the world.She needs to take some time off.They looked great last night in Miami and again Samanthas extended family was there to support them.Her stepbrother stayed next to Lindsay making sure she wont be bothered by the paps. while Samantha was djing.I love this site.

Finally. This article is fantastic because it is so straightforward. Lindsay has shown herself to be a young woman with impressive strength of character. Maybe someday she'll be able to tell the real story of those troubled years. For now, it's just nice to see that she's setting her own course and you're covering it honestly and with the respect she and Samantha both deserve. Here's hoping you'll keep it up in 2009, and others will follow your fine example.

This article is kinda awesome. Good to see something positive about Lindsay and Samantha lately. I think those 2 are great together and Lindsay has just blossomed. They both have changed for the better it seems. Now all Lindsay needs to do is resurrect her acting career. Her leggings are selling out everywhere so the road to success is already beginning... I hope they keep it up in 2009.

with being one of the biggest headlines - you have to admit that this was one of the healthiest things that LL did this year too. we all thought that SR was a bad influence on LL when all the drinking nonsense was going on - but we then came to find out that it was one of the best things for her as she's becoming sober. i wonder what '09 will have for them.
