Mischa Barton ‘detained in psychiatric ward’

Mischa Barton

We've been waiting for the debut of The Beautiful Life ever since we saw the trailer. The casting of the show was genius – Mischa Barton starring as a supermodel returning to the catwalk after a mysterious absence. But after she missed yesterday's promotional photo shoot and interviews with her co-stars, is life imitating art? Rumours are that following a call to the Los Angeles police department, placed by the actress herself, Mischa was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre, where she is under ‘involuntary psychiatric hold' (which is also what happened to Britney Spears). ‘She is sick,' is the official word from Karey Burke, the executive producer of the show. ‘Mischa wants very much to be a part of the piece and be interviewed later, but she has to get well so that she can be healthy in order to start actual production next week.' While we wait for confirmation of the situation, let's hope that Mischa gets better soon, after all The Beautiful Life looks brilliant and she deserves to bask in the glory of it.
