Mischa Barton’s attempted comeback has not been what one would generally call a success, but she has improved significantly since her strung-out post-”O.C.” years, which had all the makings of a Lohan-doppelgänger life story (unfortunate mug shots, ever-present cigarette, cocaine-induced emaciation, and all). Now I guess she has this kind of bizarre and hilariously overpriced online store, and that’s whatever. She also enlisted celebrity stylist June Ambrose to give her a wardrobe revamp, which wasn’t the worst thing in the world, because Mischa stepped out last night for a club opening in London looking the best she’s looked since, like, 2005 (totally disregarding the sketchy Brillo Pad fabric of the dress) — pretty, natural, and even better, clean, not at all like when she was dating Cisco Adler. That was a weird time.
I guess when you are middling famous you pretty much get to do anything that you want. Even if you are, say, Mischa Barton, who was last relevant some five years ago. I mean, it makes sense: I just found out that 50 Cent got to star in a movie with Robert DeNiro, which is equally as implausible as Mischa Barton having her own line of lip gloss. Because why? Who said, “You know, I’d really like to commemorate my fave lanky pseudo-lesbian from ‘The O.C.’ Marissa Cooper with her very own line of lip crap?”
Nobody. But alas, the Mischa Barton lip gloss empire was still birthed. Keep reading »
I never understood what was the big deal about Mischa Barton, other than a pretty face and a nice body and some decent-enough acting skills. She stars in the “Everybody’s On The Run” music video for Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds and, well, she’s inexplicably running around in leopard print bra and panties. Edgy, I guess? [YouTube]

Mischa Barton seemed like she hit rock bottom for a while but she is looking very healthy now. She scored the cover of Nylon Korea (May 2012). What is she up to now? The former ‘O.C’ star has turned her focus to fashion. Her clothes retail between $45 and $450. She launched her clothes 2 months ago and they were sold out in days.
“It’s for women ranging from 15 to 35. There are different pieces that will appeal to different styles, but the main thing is I wanted it to feel functional and easy to wear,” Barton told WWD. “My sister, who’s 36 and a barrister in London, wears a lot of it.” Read more …
So. I’m currently considering a very, very, very last minute New Year’s trip to somewhere hot. It is barely winter and I am already suffering from Seasonal Affective Disorder. And there have been signs that I am meant to go out of town and get a tan in the very near future. For example… Keep reading »
There’s so many vegetarians in Hollywood. I’d like to take a moment to salute some famous folks who aren’t afraid to flaunt their love of meat. Like Mischa Barton who got up close and personal with a raw steak in a recent Tyler Shields photo shoot. She even put that sucker in her mouth. Get it, girl! I think meat moments are becoming a “thing.” Finally. Click through to see more celebs handling meat. [E! Online]
Oh, Mischa. Everyone knows that if you’re going to pick your nose, you don’t do it while sitting on a public park bench in fancy pants 90210. [Beverly Hills, 3/22/10] Keep reading »
Mischa. Sweetie. We know you’re playing a prostitute on an episode of “Law & Order SVU.” But I promise you, there is not a single hooker in New York City who actually dresses like that. What is the “SVU” costume department thinking? Keep reading »
I’m always skeptical of a woman who says doesn’t have girlfriends. It’s a real red flag for me – that leaves me wondering, “What’s wrong with this picture?” Is she untrustworthy? A boyfriend stealer? A narcissist? Sure – it’s fun and healthy to have guy friends (less drama for sure) – but it’s downright shady not to be able to get along with other ladies. According to a recent interview with Metro, Megan Fox thinks girls can’t be friends with one another because we all have daddy issues. When asked about the “frenemies” phenomenon she said, “Yes, girls are awful. But, in their defense, girls are awful because of the way society is set up – we’re constantly in competition for male attention. Our fathers raise us wrong and we spend the rest of our lives searching for boys to pay attention to us, which validates us. So no girl can really be your friend, because if she takes attention from you, your daddy doesn’t love you.” Watchu talkin’ ‘bout Megan? That’s some messed up stuff. I think she just proved my theory. Something’s not quite right there … but we already kind of knew that. After the jump, some other celebs that are girl haters. Gotta makes you wonder … [Celebitchy] Keep reading »
