Is LINDSAY LOHAN back on with Samantha Ronson? They were spotted leaving the Hollywood Roosevelt hotel together early Friday morning and, no, Lindsay wasn't drinking. Later, around 5 am, Samantha Tweeted: "Watching grey's anatomy - my fav show." "@lindsaylohan sleeping next 2 me - should i wake her up to let her know her mom is going on GMA?" Apparently the answer was 'yes' and it caught Lindsay by surprise because she had no idea her mother had lined up an interview and she wasn't happy about it either. Lindsay was out again later that night, but this time she was turned away when she tried to get into a NBA All-Star party hosted by the Lakers' Pau Gasol at the Sunset Marquis. Lindsay wasn't on the guest list so they wouldn't let her in and she reportedly wandered aimlessly around the hotel for awhile before leaving. (More on Lindsay in Dateline Hollywood)
