Mischa Calls Seacrest to Talk DUI, Act Apologetic

Mischa Barton called into Ryan Seacrest's show this morning, marking the first time she's talked to the press since her post-Christmas DUI. While she didn't open up about her image-improving photo ops (ha), she did sound apologetic for the incident, and she swore it was not a mistake she plans to repeat. She said:


"Obviously, I'm 100 percent responsible for my actions in this case and I'm really disappointed in myself. I don't know what to say about it, except that I'm not perfect. I just don't intend to do something this stupid again."

She went on to talk about how she doesn't want to be associated with "those girls" (you know who) and how she deals with all the rumors. She is really pulling out the stops with the damage control. Listen to the interview below.


Speaking of which, Mischa isn't the only Barton making headlines. Stories surfaced this week that her younger sister Hania had a pill overdose scare over the holidays, to which Mischa's rep responded with a scathing statement.

Why do we have to bring up Britney in this post? Perhaps Pop realizes Britney has an illness, and it's sad to exploit people with illnesses. I don't get why people on here expect Pop to be like..."Hahahah Britney is exhibiting x,y,z symptom of bipolar disorder, let's make fun of her!!" I mean, everyone criticized Dr. Phil for trying to exploit her, why would you expect Pop to? If I read one more, "BRITNEY IS A SELFISH BRAT AND NO ONE EVER TOLD HER WHAT TO DO AND I HATE HER AND SHE'S UGLY AND SHE JUST WANTS ATTENTION AND I HATE ATTENTION WHORES!" comment I think I might threaten you all with an umbrella. Please pretend for ONCE we care about erasing the stigma from mental illness. Just ignore her and take her kids away and hope she gets help. Simple enough really. I don't care much about Mischa, but I don't think her rep's comments were out of line. Why should we know about her sister's problems, especially health problems when she never asked to be in the public spotlight?

Haha I agree. Pop is always being so rude to Mischa, but not Britney, who has done much worse things.

You know, isn't this the second time her sister has been all over the tabs? She landed her butt in rehab a while ago, right? And didn't Mischa end up in the hospital herself for partying too hard? Oh that's right, it wasn't partying, it was antibiotics...(yeah right). She's been one of "those girls" for years, who does she think she's kidding?

Regardless of whether this story has been over-publicized, DUIs *ARE* a huge deal. Just ask anyone who's been affected by someone drinking and driving.

"Funny how Pop is all catty with Misha. If it were Britney Spears doing something like this, they'd just say "poor Britney, we hope she can turn things around for herself" for the billionth time. "- jlanaThank you so much for saying that, I feel the same way. When it comes to Britney, popsugar pities her and blames others for her destructive, irrational behavior (Kevin, Mother, paparazzi) but when its Lindsay or Paris or Misha their ready to call them drug/drunk stricken, STD riddling whores.NOTE TO POPSUGAR: YOU’RE BEING WAY TOO BIASED, BRITNEY IS AS BAD AS THE REST OF 'EM. ACCET IT STOP BEING DILUSIONAL, SHES NOT GOING TO GET BETTER AND JUSTIN IS NOT GOING TO SAVE HER FROM HER DEMONS AS MUCH AS YOU WISH FOR THAT TO HAPPEN. GET REAL BRITS A HOT A** MESS ALWAYS HAS BEEN ALWAYS WILL BE.PS: YOU CAN'T PROVOK A RATIONAL PERSON TO DO IRATIONAL THINGS.

Hania is a short version of Polish name Hanna. And it's my mum's name, so be nice please ;) Hannah is a personal name, also spelt Hanna or Hana, deriving from the Hebrew language and the Japanese language. חַנָּה (Channah), meaning "He (God) has favoured me/favours me (i.e. with a child)." The name is biblical as it is the name of the mother of the prophet Samual (1 Samuel 1:2), and their associated story is how the name gets its meaning. The 'Hannah' spelling of the name was taken up as a given name by the Puritans in the 16th and 17th centuries and has always been a common Jewish name. Hanna is also a surname; see Hannah (surname). In the japanese meaning, it means flower. source: wikipedia

Isn't she and her family a bunch of crackheads. Whatever! This isn't the first or last time, you just got caught. Anyone else remember her having to be rushed to the hospital over the summer....probably some bad mushrooms/crack.

And another thing..she's famous for being on the OC two years ago. That's it, isn't it? Oh yeah, except for The Sixth Sense when she was a kid and she really creeped me out. So nowadays..she's famous for her DUI. And she doesn't want to be one of "those girls"...hmmm....little late for that perhaps? When she actually does something substantial maybe then I'll take interest in her. Maybe.

Ive never been too interested in Mischa, the only comment I have is that I was surprised by how low her voice was. When I look at her I expect her to sound like Paris and Britney
