Mischa Barton is, surprisingly, not a failure

Mischa Barton leaving a nightclub in London (8/1)

Mischa Barton’s name hasn’t been in the news lately so I just assumed she was sleeping in a ditch somewhere. Surprisingly, that’s not the case. She’s actually busy making money. Wait, really? From the Chicago Sun Times:

Mischa Barton is still acting and has a couple of films slated for release this year, along with an upcoming stage production of “Steel Magnolias” in Ireland. But the former star of “The O.C.” has been mostly focusing on her fashion biz lately. Her Mischa’s Place online site is doing well and Barton’s self-named boutique in London has really taken off — selling her signature lines of accessories and women’s clothing.

The world is full of surprises, isn’t it? Not only does Mischa still get acting gigs that don’t require condoms, but she actually owns a store that she didn’t trade for an 8 ball. Even more surprising is that owning a “homeless chic boutique” can apparently still support a drug habit. It harms the heart to see that the bumwear brand started years ago by the Olsen twins lives on in London’s skid row. God save the Queen.
