Mischabarton_lafashion_290 Mischa Barton is in New York shooting “The Beautiful Life,” but if reports are to be believed, she almost didn’t have any life at all.

“Sources” tell E! Online that the former “O.C.” star’s recent stay at a hospital was due to “suicidal” actions, which may have stemmed from The CW no longer wanting her for “The Beautiful Life.”

Uh, not so fast with that story.

“Absolutely false,” says Barton’s rep, “your source is far from knowledgeable, as nothing they’ve told you is true, inclusive of the suicide attempt.

“She was never fired and rehired, but has had the role of Sonja [in The Beautiful Life] all along,” adds the rep. “The network and studio have been supportive of Mischa’s casting and subsequent recovery all along.”

Hmm, well, this is sad, whether it’s true or not. We just want her to continue shooting and we’ll see for ourselves if her performance has been affected. Can’t wait!
