Mischa Barton refuses to pay her former sobriety coaches. The former The O.C. actress turned handbag designer was ordered to pay Doctors' Choice Nursing (DCN) $95,000 for services they provided her in 2009, but she claims she is not responsible for the outstanding bill as she didn't hire the team to look after her.
A default judgment was entered against the 27-year-old star in 2011 after she failed to show up in court when the company filed a lawsuit to recoup the money owed to them for helping her to stay sober. But Mischa's lawyer argued in court on Thursday that her mother hired the sobriety nurses and therefore she ran up the bills so the actress isn't responsible for them, according to gossip website TMZ.com.
The Bhopal: A Prayer for Rain actress is fighting the default judgment and her lawyer pointed out that the owner of the DCN failed to notify Mischa directly about the mounting bill, saying it didn't make sense if they thought she was responsible for paying it. The owner claimed that she didn't want to add to Mischa's stress, as it was the nurses' job to keep her sober before an important acting role in 2009, the same year that she was starring in The Beautiful Life and was legally held in hospital under psychiatric observation.
If you had to pick (pun intended) the biggest eyesore from this picture of Mischa Barton, which one would it be?
The flowered shorts?
The disheveled hair?
The ugly shoes?
The finger up the nose?

The Beautiful Life: TBL actress Mischa Barton thinks that being sectioned was a “good” thing.
The recently unemployed star was placed under an involuntary psychiatric hold earlier this year but says she appreciated the chance to take time out and reassess her life.
“I went to the hospital because of pain with my wisdom teeth and I ended up getting ‘put in,’ but that’s because I was so overwhelmingly stressed out and upset. I think it was my teeth and the stress of having a new job and traveling. I was miserable. Actresses aren’t given the time to recover after stuff like that - you’re expected to bounce back from surgery and work right away again. I was shocked it went that far but I think it was necessary for me to take that time out. I’m so much more settled and calm now. Ultimately, it was a positive thing.”
Mischa Barton is terrified her career is over.
The 23-year-old actress - who was placed under involuntary psychiatric care in a Los Angeles hospital in July - was devastated when her new TV show The Beautiful Life was canceled after just two episodes, and now fears she will never find work again.
“This show was such an ego boost for her at a time when she needed one. She has been insecure about where her career was going and feels she may be a has-been at 23. She hasn’t been overwhelmed with offers since The O.C. went off the air,” a source said. “She needs to feel she’s still employable. Right now, that’s her deepest fear. That no one will hire her again. It’s not true, but that’s how insecure she can get sometimes.”
For all of those who didn’t quite agree with me last time on Mischa Barton’s latest looks, I would like to present Exhibit B.
All joking aside from E!‘s Minnie Mouse comment, her entire outfit looks so awkward! It might have helped a bit if she had at least attempted to fix her hair up. I mean, that’s what hairdressers are for, right?

Seriously, did we miss a UFO that swapped bodies with the Mischa Barton we all used to love and adore?
I personally loved Mischa when she was on The O.C., cried when she left, and continued to keep up with what she wore because she was a rising fashion icon. With getups like this fringe-friendly, seventies-inspired top, spandex tights, and dated UGG boots, who am I to look up to now?

You know - I would have been perfectly willing to come to this poor girl’s defense. I mean, who doesn’t have cellulite? And for the first time in quite some time, Mischa Barton looks like a normal woman! (Okay, maybe except for that headband get-up.) But when the actress’ rep claimed the Daily Mail pics weren’t real, I had to laugh.
Lisa Perkins told the NY Daily News, “Those photos are doctored. I’m not saying she’s perfect, nobody is. But they’ve given a 22-year-old woman the legs and bottom of an 80-year-old.”
