Mischa Barton's rep: She is 'doing and feeling signficantly better'
Following a recent hospitalization and psychological evaluation, Mischa Barton is set to begin shooting her new CW drama, “The Beautiful Life.”
“She’s obviously doing and feeling significantly better,” a rep for the actress, 23, told us Tuesday.
Production on the TV show, in which Barton plays a fashion model, is slated to begin Friday. Barton’s rep said her exact start date is unclear, but she “definitely will appear in this episode onward.”
The show was supposed to begin production in NYC last week, but producers cited set problems — not Barton’s health issues — as the reason for the delay.
“We are happy to report that Mischa Barton is doing well and excited to start to work, as we all are,” executive producers Mike Kelley and Karey Burke told us in a statement Tuesday.
Barton’s meltdown wasn’t the first time the starlet has seen trouble. In 2007 she was sent to the hospital for an alleged reaction to cold medicine and arrested on suspicion of DUI and marijuana possession.
