Mischa Barton May Be Replaced in ‘Beautiful Life’

Before Mischa Barton hit a big personal roadblock last week, she had big plans for the fall.

The former OC actress was hoping to make her big comeback in the CW’s new show The Beautiful Life. However, the actress is a little unavailable at the moment, seeing that she is reportedly residing at a Los Angeles psych ward for undisclosed “medical” reasons.

The show was set to start filming on July 22, but has been pushed back a week. Apparently it’s not because of Barton. A spokesperson for The CW explained that the show’s sets were not ready for the actors to arrive yet. Right…

For now, producers have turned to Plan B, according to EW.com. Mischa’s supermodel character will not be entirely replaced, but augmented with a new female character, tentatively named Jane, who would have a similar plotline to Barton’s experienced supermodel, Sonja Stone. Casting is currently underway in order to make the show’s July 21 start.

It is still unknown whether or not Mischa will be able to fulfill her duties on the show.
