Mischa Barton Has A Sober Coach

Well, she definitely needs it.

Producers on Mischa Barton’s new TV show The Beautiful Life have hired a sober coach to stay with the hard-partying actress following last month’s involuntary psychiatric hold at Los Angeles’ Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

A source reveals, “Mischa is doing great since she returned to work, but after a chat with show bosses she agreed she would appreciate some extra support.”

When she was released, Mischa was not assigned any sort of sober companion, but that quickly changed after she was spotted partying at the All Points West music festival in New York a few days after her hospital release.

Family friend Eric Ziegenbein dished,  “It’s scary to see her out right after she’s received treatment. When I found out she’d been partying again, I was shocked. I thought she would chill out for a bit. The fact she was out right away proves she’s not taking things seriously enough. It was like a big ‘f**k you.’ She’s too proud and independent sometimes.”

Hopefully Mischa gets the help she needs while focusing on her new TV show.
