Mischa Barton Is Going Back to Work

Good news, everyone! After reportedly freaking out and getting locked up in a mental ward last week, Mischa Barton is starting to get back on her feet.

According to the Associated Press, Barton’s publicist, Craig Schneider, says that Mischa is “still seeking treatment but making improvements” and, most importantly, will be reporting to work on her new CW series The Beautiful Life when it begins filming on July 31.

As was reported yesterday, producers were concocting a new character for the show similar to Barton’s—a pill-popping supermodel struggling to save her career—as a sort of “Plan B” in case Barton wasn’t able to return to work.
