Mischa Barton isn't the same person she was in 2009.  That woman was in a bad way, out of control and finally committed on an involuntary psychiatric hold after blacking out under the influence of a sedative. Today's 27-year-old Mischa, as represented in a new People cover story, seems settled enough to reflect back on those crazy days and offer something by way of explanation. "It was a full-on breakdown," she tells the mag. "I was under enormous pressure. " "It was terrifying," she adds, via ABC News . "Straight out of 'Girl, Interrupted.' Story of my life.

“Gossip Girl” actress Kelly Rutherford has sold a house in West Hollywood for $980,000. The Spanish-style bungalow, built in 1926, features a wood-floored living room that opens to a dining room with a skylight, an updated kitchen, two bedrooms and 1.75 bathrooms. The deck contains a bar and a built-in barbecue. Rutherford, 44, starred on "Gossip Girl" from 2007 until the final episode in December. She was also in the series "E-Ring" (2005-2006) and "Melrose Place" (1996-1999)

For its new, Ashton Kutcher-produced world-of-modeling soap opera, "The Beautiful Life: TBL," CW has added an abbreviation of the title to the title itself -- as if to make it seem, somehow, that the show is already popular and being talked about, in shorthand. It's a kind of wishful thinking, as if I were to name myself "Robert Lloyd: Cool," in the hope that you might believe I am. In any case, the series, which premieres tonight, is not so different from, or significantly worse -- or better -- than the network's other two season premieres, "Melrose Place" and "The Vampire Diaries," which also affix stock characters, played mostly by good-looking young folk, to standard plot lines sexed up with pop songs and different flavors of visual glamour.
