Samantha Ronson’s friends worry about her drinking; her mugshot is priceless


Yesterday, we covered an early-morning DUI that Samantha Ronson scored in Baker, CA while driving home from a Las Vegas DJ gig. Precisely why Ronson didn’t bother to check herself into a hotel room instead of getting behind the wheel remains a mystery, but the associated mugshot has surfaced, and Samantha’s trademarked sneer appears to have amplified itself in spades. Hello, Miss Attitude! If I ever had to take a mugshot, all you’d see would be tears and a dual stream of eyeliner. In Sam’s case, the officer taking the shot was probably the one crying after the encounter was over.

In addition to this portrait for posterity, there’s also a new report from TMZ that Samantha’s friends have been quite worried about the DJ because she’s allegedly been hitting the bottle pretty hard lately. Something tells me that the “source” on this information might be someone very close to the Lohan side of the equation:

Sam Ronson’s DUI comes as no surprise to her friends … who have been worried that Sam has “not been acting like herself” lately … sources extremely close to the DJ tell TMZ.

We’re told … in the past couple of months, Ronson has been hitting the nightclubs A LOT harder than she used to — and for more than just work — staying out longer hours … and boozing more than ever.

Sources connected to Sam tell us … even her ex-girlfriend Lindsay Lohan felt things were getting bad with Sam … and she decided to minimize her contact with the DJ because she felt Sam wouldn’t be a positive influence.

TMZ broke the story … Ronson was arrested for DUI on her drive from Vegas to L.A. yesterday … and law enforcement sources tell us her blood alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit.

While it’s obvious by now that Samantha is no angel, there is no limit to the absurdity in stating that Lindsay felt that Sam was a bad influence. After all, Lindsay knowingly stalked Sam earlier this year by becoming her neighbor in a move that disgusted Sam. In addition, Lindsay obviously has no one but herself to blame for her own assorted crackhead antics, and she’s progressed quite nicely into a string of vodka-soaked weekends of her own volition. Besides, who can honestly call Sam Ronson a bad influence and then hang out with one Paris Hilton?

As for Sam herself, the part about her boozing more than normal lately might be true, for she’s been a club DJ for many years and hasn’t been in trouble with the law until this DUI incident. Maybe it has something to do with a surprisingly cute yoga instructor that Samantha was seen snogging in late March who seems to have disappeared of late. Or maybe not. All that really matters, however, is that Samantha doesn’t get behind the wheel again after drinking. Seriously, hire a damn driver.

    She looks like a really sweet person.

  2. Princess says:

    @Franny- LOLLLLL

    that’s what K-Stew would look like if she was a meth head.

  3. MarenGermany says:

    I always considered Sam the only, real friend Lindsay had.
    Sam (say what you want about her) always came across to me like she was the only one who really cared for Lindsay and was always there when she was down no matter what has happened before.

    nice move, if Lindsay really wants to minimize the contact, now that Sam is the one in trouble….

  4. Westcoaster says:

    These celebrities will not even blink when they buy expensive homes, cars, clothing etc. Yet they never seem to have money for a driver or a taxi when out drinking.

  5. seal team 6 says:

    Sam really is pretty cute, when she isn’t looking like one of the Walking Dead. However, the rebel without a cause thing is barely kinda charming and cute at 19. By 33? Grow up, Ronson. The chucks are okay, but the BMX and whole sneer thing needs to go. Ugh.

    And, Sam being a bad influence on Linnocent? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

  6. Jules says:

    Bedhead, I agree, this story is coming from Lohan.
    Since Lohan is partying it up of late with Paris Hilton, Brandon Davis and such fine upstanding members of society and falling over on a regular basis, i don’t suspect the minimized contact has anything to do with Ronson being a bad influence . Rather more to do with Ronson being otherwise engaged.
    It was reported by the ny post that sam ronson is in a new relationship with one of producer/songwriter David Fosters daughters. I don’t know if she is the yoga instructor you mention?

  7. Lina says:

    I have a huge girl crush on little Samro!. i think she is kinda adorable, hilarious on twitter and sexy in a i don’t care way. The dui is a bit of a let down but as it’s her 1st offense i am willing to give her the benefit of doubt.

  8. Mitsey Martin says:

    I think she looks likes she needs a good scrub down with disenfectant – bleurch

  9. Pilar says:

    @ Jules.
    Sam is with Erin Foster now. They’ve been dating for a few months. Which fits the timeline nicely for when Lilo claims she hadn’t had much contact. Lol!

  10. seal team 6 says:

    Erin Foster is a cutie.

  11. Elizabeth says:

    @ seal team – I agree the last picture with the smile instead of the adolescent sneer is what I’ve been waiting to see. She is at least 15 years past the best before date on that Walking Dead look. I hope she takes this DUI as a wake up call – driving back to LA after a long night of work (no matter what work you do) is not a good idea. Add too much booze to it and it becomes a terrible idea!

  12. Princess Lizabeth says:


    In her mug shot she looks a wee bit like an evil Emma Watson.

  13. Katalina says:

    Also concerning? The fact that according to her booking sheet she is listed as 5’7 and only 102 lbs. THAT IS TINY TINY TINY.

  14. jenny says:

    i love samantha

  15. Anita says:

    Gosh she looks hard used and abused.

  16. Kara Ann says:

    I agree with Seal Team on this one completely. This “look” is no way to present yourself as an adult. Whether or not it’s true, I always think that people who don’t dress their age probably refuse to act their age as well. Just want to say, you know, that putting away the hipster gear is a good idea!

  17. tia says:

    Craziness, but she is actually really hot in person.

  18. Madisyn says:

    The ENTIRE TMZ story smells like a “Lohan”

    The ‘source’ is either Blohan, Dina, or Michael. The whole ‘source’ thing smells like a $5,000 check to one of the named above. Shameful, disgusting, pitiful, Lohan!

  19. Darlene says:

    One of the blogs did a timeline about how from Point A (where she started) to Point B (where she was picked up), on her way to Point C, she had been in the car for over three hours driving. It was 10:30 in the morning, so she got in a car, WASTED, around 7am, and was so wasted, she was drunk more then 3 hours later when she was popped.

    SO DANGEROUS. Also, they called her mugshot a “smug shot”. Wish I could remember. Maybe Michael K?

  20. Kimbob says:

    @Katalina…I thought the same thing. Anorexic….bulimic? When she smiles, I usually don’t see her teeth. Bulimics don’t usually have nice teeth. I don’t know.

    I agree she needs to grow up. Her schtick w/the sneers and acting like she is “just so over this” is becoming old. She doesn’t look too cool or attractive to me.

  21. Butch says:

    Haha. Need publicity much Sam? A little harder to pack those dj gigs without her who shall remain unnamed.

  22. Anna says:

    Linnocent must be seething, Sam’s mugshot totally upstages hers in its horridness!

  23. the original bellaluna says:

    Heroine face. Look at those circles under her eyes.

    Michael K called it a “smug shot.”

    @ Madisyn – Wonder how Blohan’s planning on upstaging this? You know it’s gonna be good, whatever she tries.

  24. NoFrank says:

    The only celebrity facial expression that annoys me more than Renee Zellweigers “lemon face” is Sam Ronson’s sneer. I want to slap it off of her every time a see a picture of it.

  25. Thea says:

    1. Heroin Addict. Alcohol least of her worries.
    2. Needs that little smugness slapped off her face, but maybe she wants to go to jail as she would have lots of offers.
    3. Needs to be pressure washed.
    4. And has apparently not learned anything from Amy Winehouse situation.

  26. Kelly says:

    I also can’t stand the double-middle-fingered salute. WTF is that all about?

  27. velourazure says:

    anorexia is not a good look for her.

  28. Madisyn says:

    @ bellaluna

    “Smug Shot” Perfect. I read Michael K. religiously. If your ever feeling blue or are jonesing for a Blohan or White Oprah article, go back into the archives at DListed and start at the farthest date back, they’re the bomb. Almost as good as a cracktini.

    As for Blohan’s next stunt, she’s busy making a little bank on Ronson’s DUI. “Sources” my ass. If the quotes at TMZ weren’t so self-serving, I’d buy the quotes from her friends. There’s just one little, teensey, weensey problem: Ronson’s friends don’t discuss her in the press and especially with TMZ, that’s ‘Lohan’ territory. (verb form and all that it implies)

  29. bogie says:

    Ronson would talk trash about Lohan all the time. A lot on her twitter account. Ronson is and was abusive to Lohan. Fakes like she is upset Lohan moved next to her than two min later is hanging with Lohan. Ronson works for the negative attention…she use Lohan for a long time. Now she did this I believe for some attention. Ronson is 33 and acts 18

  30. Onyx XV says:

    @ Thea: Do you have a solid source for your point #1? I’ve always thought she looks like a junkie, so just curious.

    That mugshot is a classic!

  31. gg says:

    Those uber-dark circles remind me of heroin addicts. And don’t you love it when grownups dress like sk8R boys and shoot birds at cameras? Original and mature!

  32. penguin says:

    heroin or chrystal meth.

  33. Goofpuff says:

    Sam is definitely much cuter as a brunette. She still looks like a junkie.

  34. Jared says:

    @ onyx She was busted for alcohol- not drugs. Never heard any stories about her being impaired or un-proffessionals and from what i understand this is her first offense. I think people are reading too much into her busted hipster look

    “And did I mention she’s a lesbian?” Dina Lohan said into the pay phone. “Because she’s a lesbian. A lesbian who bites people and turns them into other lesbians, so the movie studios won’t hire them anymore making it all her fault because she, uh, she feeds off their failure. Yeah, write that stuff.”- The Superficial LOL 🙂

  36. Camille says:

    She looks like sh!t.

  37. joho777 says:

    I rather like Samantha.

    Sam’s only error was to have the extremely bad taste to fall in love with Lindsay.

    Bet even Sam could only put up with Lindsay’s insane possessiveness and her drama queen antics for about five months.

    Then Sam broke it off.

    She spent the next three years putting up with Lindsay’s constant (and phony) ‘broken heart’ antics.
