Normally, we love to keep things light and make sure our readers are entertained. We know that many people love to escape by reading our website and that’s something we understand. We also know that other times, our readers look to our site for that intersection of reality TV and other important news. Recently, our site has covered different aspects of the coronavirus pandemic.
In addition to the global health crisis, there are issues in this country that cannot be ignored. Recently, reality TV stars have been using their platforms to demand justice for George Floyd, a man who was killed on May 25 when a policer officer named Derek Chauvin shoved his knee into his neck. George told him, “Please, the knee in my neck, I can’t breathe.” According to CNN, witness Donald Williams told the policeman, “Officer, he’s not resisting arrest, you have your knee on him and you have handcuffs on him, he’s detained at this moment.'”
Over the weekend, some of your favorite reality TV stars attended protests. Others encouraged people to take action and speak up.
I’m not gonna lie. I was pretty confused when I heard Mischa Barton would be on The Hills reboot. I couldn’t make the connection between Mischa and the rest of the cast when I first heard about it and made no sense after watched Season 1 of The Hills: New Beginnings. She brought nothing to the table, other than a sense of nostalgia and my desire to rewatch The OC.
Mischa had no storyline and we pretty much just saw her shopping with the other cast members and sitting in the background during events. With that said, it wasn’t at-all-surprising when rumors started to circulate that Mischa got fired because she was “boring” and “bland.” And quite frankly, this is because Mischa was “boring” and “bland.” Then again, so were a lot of them. The Hills cast members were working overtime on the image crafting. Somehow, the reboot seemed even more manufactured than the original series. No one showed anything remotely real.
I cannot say that I am surprised Mischa Barton (reportedly) got fired from The Hills: New Beginnings. She wasn’t a part of the original Hills run. She had such a forced “connection” to the cast. Oh, and most importantly, she had no storyline. Mischa brought absolutely nothing to the table.
We saw her audition for some acting role that she didn’t get, but that was pretty much it. Other than that, we just saw her shopping with the others and chilling in the background. As an enthusiastic fan of The OC, I was really hoping for a Mischa Barton comeback. But, the truth is, she’s not nearly as interesting as her onscreen counterpart Marissa Cooper.
