Anorexic Ambulance Alert: Mischa Barton Hospitalized

by at . Comments

Mischa Barton is not one to let other bad actresses outshine her.

After a week that saw Lindsay Lohan charged with DUI and Tori Spelling put in her place by Mary Jo Eustace, Barton jumped back into the headlines by reacting badly to medication.

TMZ has learned that the former star of The OC was rushed to the hospital last night after suffering an adverse reaction to prescribed pills.

Sources say the pot smoker was at a friend's Memorial Day BBQ, enjoying a few holiday cocktails, when she began to feel ill.

Mischa, who had been quite sick with bronchitis since traveling to Cannes, London and Paris the past several weeks, didn't realize that you can't exactly mix alcohol with antibiotics.

But it's hard to thin blame the star: she so rarely puts anything in her mouth. How could she know? Well, unless friend and fellow fainter Nicole Richie had passed along such advice.

The 21-year-old was rushed to an undisclosed medical facility in Los Angeles, where insiders say she is "resting comfortably." Don't expect ex-boyfriend Cisco Adler to visit her any time soon, though.

Mischa Barton Quotes

I don’t care if people try to put me down. I just think it’s so sad that that’s what people spend their time doing. It might sound crazy, but I’m a really nice person.

That was a low point for me. I never, ever would have thought I would be arrested. I was disappointed because it associated me with a group of girls that I would rather not be associated with.
