Two toxic people cannot be together. End of story. We’re friends now. That’s how it started so I think that’s how it was meant to be. I was bold enough to say, “Yeah I like a girl. And?” That put her in a situation where she was being attacked every day. That’s not fair. And what am I left with? Heartbreak. That was three years ago. It was my last serious relationship.
But the tough-girl Us Weekly scowl Ronson perfected back when she was dating you know who is nowhere to be seen here in the likable, low-key woman who dwells in this prismatic Venice Beach, California, playhouse. (Except, well, in the unmissable screen print propped against a wall: a composite of celebrity mug shots, Ronson’s included—which she calls a reminder to “stay out of trouble.”) “I’m like a big kid,” Ronson says warmly, tugging at the sleeves of her traffic-cone-orange sweatshirt and looking up at the living room’s two-story ceiling. “If I could have a trampoline in here, I would!” It’s true: There’s probably enough clearance for a backflip, but then where would she put the candy-pink pool table?
…she’s certainly grown up since her paparazzi-dodging days. (She and Erin Foster, an actress and comedy writer, just quietly ended what Ronson called a healthy relationship.)
To be honest, I think Samantha Ronson has the cutest style and even though we have very different senses of style, I get a lot of my personal fashion inspiration from her. She wears really, really cute clothes. She’s got a killer closet. She always gets mad at me because I bite her style and I say, “At least I’m honest about it.” - Nicole Richie
