Mischa Barton is being sued by her New York landlord for three months rent she never paid. Last September when she thought she was going to have a job for a year or two, Mischa signed a lease on a $7000 month apartment in New York. When her shows was canceled, Mischa stopped paying her rent. You know what? I am going to give her a break. Does she owe the money? Sure. But, I bet there were a lot of people from the cast and crew of that show that are in the same situation but because their name is not Mischa Barton no one knows about it. $7000 seems like a lot for an apartment but in terms of New York and the lead on a television show it really isn't that much money. It isn't like she rented some outrageously expensive place. How many other people in the world have lost their jobs and couldn't make the payments on their home or apartment?
Maybe now we know why she is willing to play a hooker on a television show. She could have been like Lindsay and held out for some A list thing that is never going to happen. Instead she took the equivalent for an actor of working at McDonald's and made some money on SVU. Now if she could just learn her lines.
