Rachel Bilson NOT Shunning Mischa Barton, Despite FALSE Story
Rachel Bilson is NOT shunning her former “O.C.” co-star Mischa Barton, despite a FALSE report from RadarOnline. On Thursday, the webloid claimed Bilson is somehow trying to block Barton’s Hollywood comeback attempt from a breakdown which landed her in a psychiatric hospital. The blog alleged that Bilson and her fellows “O.C.” alums are “upset” with Barton “because of her mercurial behavior on the set; and the tarnish they believe she left on their careers with her professional missteps.”
A so-called “insider” told the site Bilson “is the one who basically made it be known that it’s okay for everybody to wash their hands of Mischa and not forgive her past transgressions.” “It’s really sad because [Mischa’s] literally trying to set up dinners to make amends and Rachel is telling everybody to ‘ignore her and she’ll go away,'” added the supposed “source.”
But the blog’s report is completely made up. A rep for Bilson tells Gossip Cop exclusively, “The RadarOnline ‘story’ is a complete fabrication. There simply is no truth to it at all.” The star’s spokesperson adds, “No one from RadarOnline checked in with Rachel or us for validity or comments. Rachel has no ill will towards Mischa – she has and will continue to wish her well.” Oops.
