Mischa Barton‘s ugly drama may push her out of The Beautiful Life.
The CW’s new drama, about the lives of supermodels, is already preparing for life without Mischa Barton, EW reported, in light of her recent involuntary psychiatric hold implemented by Los Angeles police. Alternate plans have the show replacing Barton’s role — that of Sonja Stonean, an experienced-but-fading model, to be replaced by a different character of the same ilk (which casting has already begun for). Barton’s image was still being advertised on the show’s Web site as of press time.
The show’s production originally slated for Wednesday, was pushed back a week because of what network officials said were unfinished sets.
The show is slated to premiere September 16 at 9/8c on the CW.
