Mischa Barton Had A Sober Coach - Never Paid Them

Back in 2009, Mischa Barton had a chance at primetime television fame again. Sure, it was on the CW, but hey, at least she would be on television with a regular gig. One teensy weensy problem. She was wasted out of her mind most of the time so she hired a sober coach. Technically a fleet of sober coaches. According to her lawyer, it was actually the mom who hired them, but, it was Mischa. Well, the company did their job and when the show was canceled and their services no longer required, they expected to be paid. Companies are funny that way. They wanted to be paid to the tune of $90K. Mischa didn't pay and they sued. Now, Mischa is trying to get the judgment against her to go away. I'm also guessing that Mischa doesn't have that kind of scratch to pay them anyway. She has dumped all of her money in that store of hers and thinks it is going to make her a Simpsonaire which for those of you who don't know is a celebrity who thinks they are going to get rich selling and designing clothes. Also known as an Olsenaire, but only if you also look homeless or like Rachel Zoe.

This is a perfect example of someone who blew there chance at a good career....step 1 - wrong boyfriend
step 2 - not knowing when enough is enough...

I'm guessing she didn't pay her stylist either & that's why she looks like that.

She has a store?

If any of you have a spare 40 minutes go to Youtube and look up Mischa Barton and Fern Cotton interview. Its a laugh----I think she was on meth or just had straight-up schizophrenia---shes very pretty though and I like she takes risks with her style....

Cam Colty said exactly what I was going to say: AA/NA: it's free!! But you may run into undesirables, but that's no different from Hollywood, Mischa! Try it sometime, babe!

And, such a pity about her looks. She was gorgeous.

I'm sure Mischa is the answer to a whole gaggle of Blinds, however.... if she was wasted out of her mind, maybe she's not on the hook for it? Not that I'm saying that's right, but maybe that's her defense?

Nice to see she has a mother in her corner hiring a sober coach for her. Where's Amanda Bynes' mother?

I really hope those clothes are not from her store. Ugh. She looks like a bad rendition of a ghost from 1940.

Wow, stupid. Good luck with that clothing line. If it didn't work out for Katie Holmes it's not going to work for Mischa Barton, which has always been the worst dressed person in the world as far as I'm concerned. I would pay her to leave me alone.

timebob said...

Mischa's defense is that her mother hired the service and therefore isn't responsible for payment (nice to toss your moms under the bus Mischs)

They also say she was never informed of the mounting bills. Which I say is a fair defense on some level. To which was countered it wasn't the nurse's job to itemize their billing hours but to do their job and keep her sober which they did.

Unless she signed a contract I'm not sure how much they are going to get out of her.

Lol ethorne!

I like this Enty. I hope we can keep him.

Shocky said...

@derek I was just about to post that. It's second only to the Peaches Geldolf one in terms of it's WTF-ness

Sober coach, sober house... I guess if you're rich & famous, you can't join AA b/c you can't be anonymous.

Dear me, she looks like crazy Nadine from The Stand!

BTW - someone mentioned a few weeks ago that the Olsens are actually very respected in the fashion world and won an industry award. They look like bag ladies, but they're packing cash.

If I were respect from Wintour and th likes while looking like Zoe, I d have to reconsider my idea of what success is ...
