Mischa Barton Bares Her Bikini Body In Miami

Mischa Barton bikini
We spotted former "O.C." star Mischa Barton on a beach in Miami today. She relaxed on a lounge chair with a male friend and wore a black bikini, white sunglasses, and a large heart necklace. She carried a map print bag.

Mischa fell off the radar in recent years. After quitting "The O.C." she starred in the failed series "The Beautiful Life" in 2009.

She will appear in the upcoming films "Apartment 1303 3D" and "Into the Darkness."

Did Demi Moore Get Busy In The Back Seat With Ashton Kutcher's Friend?

Demi Moore & Ben Hollingsworth
Maybe the reason Demi Moore hasn't left Ashton Kutcher is because he wasn't the only one caught cheating. Ashton made headlines recently for reportedly having a tryst in his hotel room during his sixth wedding anniversary.

In Touch magazine alleges that Demi, 48, isn't so innocent herself. The magazine claims she hooked up with Ashton's friend and actor Ben Hollingsworth, 27. According to the mag, "One fateful night, Demi picked Ben up after he'd been partying — and unleashed her inner cougar. 'They wound up having sex in the back of the car,' the insider says."

Demi reportedly helped B...

Mischa Barton Turns Down TV Work To Focus On Rest

4/12/2011 8:28am EDT
Mischa Barton
Actress Mischa Barton has no plans to return to TV work in the near future because she's "at a restful place" in her life.

The star entered the public eye at 17 after landing a lead role in The O.C., but has tackled several personal problems in recent years - in 2009 she was placed on involuntary psychiatric hold, following the cancellation of her TV series The Beautiful Life.

The meltdown, which Barton blamed on botched dental surgery, came two years after she was charged with driving under the influence, stemming from a December 2007 arrest in Los Angeles. Barton has remained largely ...

Fashion Fail: Mischa Barton's Cutout Dress & Yellow Hair

Mischa Barton
Oh, Mischa. Being unemployed and off booze isn't doing you any favors. We spotted the former CW darling wearing a very weird dress outside the Old Swan Pub in London on Wednesday. The red and white frock looked like it was missing some pieces in the front. And what's with her horrific dye job?

Mischa recently quit drinking after hitting "rock bottom" when she was placed on involuntary psychiatric hold last summer, following the cancellation of her TV series "The Beautiful Life."

The actress is determined to turn her career around and clean up her act, and she's starting her health kick by...

Mischa Barton is kicking off her career comeback with a healthy new lifestyle - she has quit drinking.

The former "O.C." star admitted to hitting "rock bottom" when she was placed on involuntary psychiatric hold last summer, following the cancelation of her TV series "The Beautiful Life."

The meltdown, which Barton blamed on botched dental surgery, came two years after she was charged with driving under the influence, stemming from a December 2007 arrest in Los Angeles.

But the actress is determined to turn her career around and clean up her act - and she's starting her health kick by gi...

Cameron Diaz Is The 'Worst Latino Actress'

3/3/2010 6:01pm EST
Cameron Diaz in The Box
Cameron Diaz has been named the Worst Latino Actress of the past year for her role in film flop "The Box".

Diaz has topped the third annual Lazzies Awards list, handed out by Latina magazine for poor performances and bad films and TV shows.

She has been dishonored with the 'There's Always Waitressing Award' for Worst Actress for "The Box", with Latina bosses poking fun at her "bad southern accent" and her "deer-caught-in-headlights facial expression she wore throughout the entire film".

"Fame's" Walter Perez landed the 'The John T. Leguizamo Award' for Worst Actor and "Fast & Furious" wa...

Which New TV Shows Should Be Saved?

10/28/2009 1:41pm EDT
The television networks are axing shows that aren't performing or haven't had a chance to perform (The Beautiful Life: TBL, Southland) and are giving full-season orders to those that are meeting expectations (Glee, FlashForward, etc.).

There are several new shows this year that are currently on the fence - and they could be either canceled or given a chance to find the necessary audience to keep them alive.

Which shows do you think deserve to stay on air? Vote in the poll, and let us know in the comments!

New Fall TV: Keep It Or Kill It

10/21/2009 10:41am EDT
fall tv keep or kill
It's that time of year. You've checked out the new shows and by now you know if you love them or hate them. Networks are either ordering additional episodes of their fledgling series or quietly letting them burn off until nobody notices they are gone. And some networks stayed cautiously conservative by looking back to previous television icons and failing miserably (we are talking to you, NBC).

Check out the crop of new series and whether we think they should stay on the air or be put out of their misery. Let us know if you agree!

Pre-Season 2009 TV Report Card: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

9/21/2009 12:30pm EDT
Desperate Housewives
Since CNN has such a blast creating a report card to track the Presidency, we decided to have some fun with television. Which networks come out strong and which ones need to do better homework?



The Good: The dramas are what keep us coming back to ABC. Grey's Anatomy, Brothers & Sisters, FlashForward, and V are worth looking forward to. The one comedy that stands out and may hold itself against NBC's stellar comedies, Modern Family, is worth a few episodes past the pilot.

The Bad: Dancing With The Stars is extremely popular, however sometimes too much of a ...

'The Beautiful Life' Could Make For A Great Guilty Pleasure

9/17/2009 9:02am EDT
The Beautiful Life
Anyone who wished for more of the five minute model segments on "Project Runway" can now look to "The Beautiful Life: TBL." Let me first start by acknowledging that The CW has clearly achieved its goal prompted by their "TV To Talk About" campaign. I will recap the show every week, but I am putting my non-stiletto'd foot down, and refuse to call the show by the stupid acronym "TBL." Even if I'm crunched for space, there will be now TBL-ing here. Even though I just used it. Damnit.

The story begins at New York City fashion week where designer Zac Posen's (appearing as himself) newest coll...

The Sensational Won Over The CW: A Look at The Network's New 2009 Fall Shows

9/3/2009 9:40am EDT
The Beautiful Life
The first thing that struck me when the creators of The Beautiful Life addressed a crowd of bloggers who just watched their episode one cutdown (a hype package full of fast cuts, pretty people, and loud music) was how much producer Karey Burke looks like Leslie Mann. She could be on this show as one of the model mentors! The second thing was that executive producer Mike Kelley, who also worked on The O.C., wasn't going to give us the truth behind Mischa Barton's troubles because he was still giddy over being called "airport guy" in paparazzi shots of her returning to New York to shoot the s...

Rep: Demi Moore Not Appearing On 'The Beautiful Life'

9/1/2009 12:11pm EDT
Demi Moore
A rep for The CW told that Demi Moore won't be appearing on her husband's show The Beautiful Life.

Ashton Kutcher is the creator and executive producer of the new fall series, and reports surfaced the Demi would be making a guest appearance. But wouldn't that have been great to see? We think Demi could fit in the world of models without a problem.

Demi's daughter Rumer Willis will be playing a lesbian on the CW's 90210 this season.

Ashton Kutcher stars in Spread this weekend, a stylish sex comedy about the exploits of a Los Angeles gigolo working his way to infamy one mattress at a time.

Ashton majored in biochemical engineering at the University of Iowa before his "discovery" in an Iowa bar.

Ashton has a twin brother named Michael and an older sister Tausha.

He has two toes on his left foot that are fused together, meaning they are webbed (IMDB).

He is a producer of Mischa Barton's new CW show The Beautiful Life.
