Mischa Sued For Back Rent

Thursday, January 21st, 2010

Seldom-employed actress Mischa Barton may be living in that Winnebago if she doesn’t pay up to her NYC landlord! Landlord M.R.A. Realties Inc. has filed suit against Barton in an effort to collect three months’ worth of unpaid rent on her Tribeca apartment.

The lease on the pad started in September, at the time when the former star of  “The O.C.” star began working on her series “The Beautiful Life.” Unfortunately, the show was quickly cancelled and Mischa went back to the unemployment line. Good luck collecting that money, guys.

Mischa Explains Her Breakdown

Thursday, August 27th, 2009


It took her awhile, but Mischa Barton finally thought up an explanation for that little trip to the mental ward last month. The star of “The Beautiful Life” is blaming her freakout on, of all things, her teeth.

The actress told New York Timeout, “Before the show started, I was traveling abroad for contract stuff and I went through a terrible surgery—a wisdom tooth surgery, all four removed. It was a nightmare. I’ve never had surgery before—it all went wrong and I had to have a second surgery and it almost delayed shooting because it was a nightmare to me, because I couldn’t deal with the thought of not getting there on time. So with the travel, and surgery and prep for the show—it was hell.”

So how did this lead to getting locked up at Cedars-Sinai? “I was down in the dumps about everything there for a while. Sometimes you have to hit rock bottom about things and have to get the most stressed-out just to feel better again. I got completely stressed-out and couldn’t handle everything, and now I feel really in control.” Given that Mischa’s never seemed to be in control of anything before, let’s see how long this lasts.

Mischa’s Meltdown

Thursday, July 16th, 2009


Sometime actress Mischa Barton seems to be vying with Lindsay Lohan for the title of Queen of Offstage Drama.  Now her chaotic life has taken an even darker turn.

According to Access Hollywood, Barton is currently in Cedars-Sinai Medical Center under an involuntary psychiatric hold, also known as a 5150. The Los Angeles Police Department was called to her home yesterday afternoon, and assisted the actress with what a spokesperson for the LAPD referred to as a “medical issue.”

This is not going to help Barton’s failing career, especially since she’s missing the premiere of her new film, “Homecoming,” tonight in NYC. Getting locked up in the loony bin when you’re supposed to be working does not look good on your resume.

So what’s Mischa’s problem this time? Drinking? Drugs? Too much partying? Or all the above?

Mischa’s “Beautiful Life”

Friday, March 13th, 2009


Unemployed actress Mischa Barton has finally found a job. The “O.C.” has-been landed a role on the CW’s drama pilot ”A Beautiful Life.”

The Hollywood Reporter says the show centers on a group of male and female models living together in NYC. Mischa plays Sonja, a fading supermodel trying to stay on top. That should’t be much of a stretch for her.

This sounds like a really boring series. Who wants to watch a bunch of pretty, shallow people sitting around whining about how their life sucks because they didn’t make the cover of Vogue? But whoever it is who watches “The Hills” will probably watch this mess, too.

Mischa Explains Weight Loss

Tuesday, February 24th, 2009


The latest young ceeb to be getting attention for her scary-skinny frame is unemployed actress Mischa Barton, who looks like she hasn’t eaten since her TV series got canceled. So she sat down and wrote this blog about her pin-thin figure:

“So lately there’s been a lot of crazy press about my weight and just so you guys know I’m happier and healthier than ever so there is no need to worry about me. Things are really well in Mischa world and I’ve just been watching what I eat.

“I still love my pilates and yoga, and have cut back on fatty foods a bit.  My time in India and Paris really just helped me lose a little bit of weight but there’s nothing drastic going on!

“I appreciate the concern, I just wish the press wouldn’t harbor on it as I think it’s very unhealthy for young girls to read about and pay attention to.  To my female fans: Just be happy and secure with yourself and don’t let other people’s perceptions of you dictate the way you live your life.”

Pilates and yoga, eh? Too bad they don’t seem to cause such drastic weight loss in the people who really want to lose it. But I guess she has lots more time to exercise than the rest of us do since she never seems to get any acting work.
