Hey, Mischa Barton might not be the b*tch that recent stories would suggest. It was rumored that Mischa spoke openly about her OC character's demise being the reason for the show's tragic cancellation, but we were always dubious about its validity. Now it seems like we were right. TV Guide caught up with Mischa after the Golden Globes and she had this to say:
"It's definitely bittersweet," she told me. "It's too bad. I think it had its run, though. It was great while it lasted. But, of course, I was a little upset for [the cast]." When I asked her whether she felt Marissa's death contributed to the show's premature axing, as die-hard Marissa fans are naturally contending, she took the high road and said, "I have no comment on that. But I am really grateful to the fans. They've been very, very loyal, and that's always been really important to me."
It's certainly nice to hear that Mischa is not as heinous as some people try to make her seem. Other than her questionable choice in boyfriends, she's always struck us as a fairly respectable starlet. M-Bart turns 21 this week, so expect a boozy homegirl out on the town in LA. We can't wait.
