Actress Mischa Barton, 27, is opening up for the first time about her 2009 mental breakdown and involuntary 5150 hold.told the mag.
The CW has announced plans to stop production on Mischa Barton's new TV show, "The Beautiful Life: TBL."
According to Variety, an ugly showing in ratings caused the network to pull the plug on the fashion series. The magazine reports that another CW drama -- most likely "Melrose Place" -- will air reruns in the Wednesday night timeslot.
The show, loosely based on the experiences Ashton Kutcher had as a model, portrayed Barton as a model struggling to make it back to the top after taking a hiatus from the fashion world.
In July, production on the show was halted after Mischa was admitted to a Los Angeles-area hospital for a psychiatric evaluation. Barton later told reporters that her hospitalization was due to the results of a "terrible wisdom tooth surgery."
Following her mysterious involuntary hospitalization a few weeks ago, Mischa Barton has reappeared on the scene looking healthy and feeling good.
"I'm feeling great," Mischa revealed to OK! magazine on Sunday night. "I'm really happy."
The actress is currently working on her new TV show, "The Beautiful Life," in which she plays a model with a drug problem. When asked about filming, Barton told the magazine, "Going really well... I'm excited."
Mischa Barton is out of the hospital and plans to return to work, having spent two weeks at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A.
On Monday, the actress' spokesperson Craig Schneider said Barton is "out of the hospital and continuing to improve in anticipation of resuming production as planned." Schneider would not elaborate on Barton's condition.
Production on the 23-year-old's new series "The Beautiful Life" is scheduled to begin Friday.
Police reportedly removed Barton from her home on July 15, and the actress was placed under an involuntary psychiatric hold.
Mischa Barton's rep has confirmed that the former "O.C." star's health has been improving, and that Barton is looking forward to going back to work.
Barton's rep, Craig Schneider, tells AP that the actress is "still seeking treatment but making improvements." Schneider did not elaborate on why Mischa is seeking medical attention, but confirmed that she planned on reporting to work on her new television show, "The Beautiful Life," on July 31.
Authorities confirmed that they removed Barton from her home in Los Angeles last Wednesday for a medical problem. She was held on a 5150 for psych obeservation. The department and the hospital have remained hush-hush on Mischa's medical issue.
