Lindsay Lohan will be featured on today’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show (an appearance which she taped yesterday) wherein she talks to Ellen — for the first time on TV — about her break-up with ex-girlfriend Samantha Ronson. According to Lindsay, the break-up was a total surprise to her … their relationship, she claims, went from totally fine to Samantha just “disappearing”. HMM. Here is a screencap of Lindsay and Ellen together on the show and some deets from today’s interview:
What’s more difficult than enduring a painful breakup in the public eye? “When you don’t know you’re breaking up,” says Lindsay Lohan. “Really weird.” The 22-year-old actress shared her ordeal with somebody who knows all about a high-profile breakup: Ellen DeGeneres, whose split with Anne Heche in 2000 dominated celebrity news. In an Ellen DeGeneres show airing Thursday, Lohan tells the talk show host that the breakup with Samantha Ronson, 31, earlier this month “came out of nowhere.” “I had no idea what was going on. I just hadn’t seen her in, like, a week. She, like, disappeared,” Lohan says. Lohan didn’t discuss what may have led to it after a “really tough night” but denied infidelity was the cause. “I don’t believe in cheating on someone,” says Lohan. DeGeneres said that after her own public breakup, “I kind of lost my career for a little while and I went away … and I literally hibernated and got myself back together.” She asked Lohan if she wanted to run away. “I feel like I want to get my career back in shape,” she said, adding that being away from Ronson – and not dating anybody regularly right now – may be a positive step. “You know when people are together so much it gets really difficult and you forget who you are because you’re more concerned about being with the other person,” said Lohan. “I think it’s been really good for me. I thought it would be so much harder and it hasn’t been. My sister’s been here with me.” And Lohan still holds hope that the split won’t be permanent. “I really care about Samantha and we’ll see what happens,” she says. “Maybe when we’re fully in the right place. And I love her.”
Obvs, each person in a break-up is going to have their own perspective on what happened and who’s to blame. I kinda really love that Lindsay was so open about her feelings for Sam. It says a lot that she would choose Ellen‘s show to profess her still love for her ex-girlfriend … call me a wee bit crazy but is it wrong that I think it’s a little romantic? I cannot imagine that Samantha will be appearing on any TV shows to give her side of the break-up as she strikes me as an extremely private person. While I wouldn’t take Lindsay‘s assertions about what happened as the gospel truth, it may be the only side of the story that we’ll ever get to hear. Make sure you check your local listings, this is an ep of Ellen that you don’t want to miss. Incidentally, Prince will also be appearing on today’s episode of The Ellen DeGenres Show (I understand he performs Crimson & Clover) — so you don’t want to miss that. For those of you who might not be able to catch the interview or for those of you who just want a preview, there’s a short vid clip of Lindsay‘s interview. After the jump, check it out …
This is a great clip, I cannot wait to see the interview in full. Man, the drama just seems to never want to end … OY! That said, I would not be surprised if L. Ron ended up getting back together again sometime in the future. I dunno … I can just see it happening … can you?
