Mischa Barton gets falling down drunk & boyfriend ditches her

We all have a few embarrassing drunk stories. They’re rites of passage. Things our friends can hold against us at graduations, weddings, and even funerals if your friends are the really vindictive sort. Luckily for the vast majority of us the National Enquirer isn’t around when we get so drunk we can’t function. But if you’re a formerly B-list actress like Mischa Barton, they’re probably trailing right behind you. Thank goodness.

Despite a drunken driving bust and court-ordered rehab classes, Mischa Barton was spotted drinking herself into a stupor at a trendy Hollywood bar. The 22-year-old former “O.C.” star passed out after downing at least six glasses of wine at the Green Door on Aug. 12, eyewitnesses tell the Enquirer. And her boyfriend Taylor Locke, a guitarist for the rock group Rooney, got so mad that he ditched her, insiders say.

“Mischa and Taylor were at a table on the patio with several friends,” an eyewitness told The Enquirer. “She was chain-smoking and enjoying a glass of white wine, which, over the course of two hours, was followed by at least five more. Her speech became more slurred with each drink, and her head began falling onto Taylor’s chest.

“At one point, she tried to move from her chair to a nearby couch, but stumbled headfirst into the couch. Taylor was mortified! He snapped at her, ‘Mischa, come on! You’re making a fool of yourself. People can see how drunk you are.’ He demanded that she stop drinking, but she only mumbled incoherently.” Disgusted, 24-year-old Taylor stormed off to the inside bar where he hid from her, eyewitnesses revealed.

According to the Enquirer after a while when Mischa realized Taylor had ditched her, she tried to find him but ended up stumbling and falling into two girls ahead of her. Needless to say, she didn’t get far. The mag goes over Mischa’s long history with drug and alcohol problems. She’s had a DUI she calls stupid, but she didn’t go to rehab or anything. While we’ve all probably embarrassed ourselves a few times by drinking too much, it’s clear Mischa’s got some major addiction issues to work on.

    She needs to ditch that guy. What a jerk! If she was so bad off, he needed to take her home, not tell her that she’s embarrassing and then abandon her. Not that I’m a fan of hers, I’m not. But getting drunk at 22 is NORMAL!

  2. Snowblood says:

    I agree with you, Manda, that guy is an absolute loser with a small sack of rusty nails for a heart. Loathsome asshat.

  3. lola says:

    yuck… that guy is as ugly as her cellulite

  4. Nan says:

    She’s only 22 & hasn’t learned how to drink w/out getting all sloppy. She should recognize now that she should never drink as the instances will chase her into her 40′s. Some people just don’t know when to stop. She needs to stop. A little marijuana maintenance program fueled w/non-stop coffee binging ’til she gets to a rehab. This guy she was w/sucks, BTW.

  5. daisy424 says:

    Damn girl, invest in a triple mirror and a stairmaster, your thighs look like crap.

  6. Bodhi says:

    I don’t think she necessarily has “serious addiction problems”, but she sure is showing some poor judgement skills

  7. Blackalicious says:

    Cellulite can happen to anyone regardless of thinness. It’s pretty impossible to get rid of, too.

    I think the bf had a right to be annoyed a bit but as someone who is supposed to care, take her home! He might just be too immature.

  8. Orangejulius says:

    Yes, almost everyone has cellulite, but does she have to wear a skirt hiked up to her ass?

    If any boyfriend of mine ditched me like that instead of making sure I was OK (even if he dumped me afterwards) or taking me home, I’d dump HIS sorry ass. What an asswipe.

  9. stupid says:

    wowowowowowow

    When I was her age, I was doing the same thing drunk and fallin down. WHY is this important because she is a girl…PLEASE

    If I had fame and money I would be waking up and then going straight to the club..dump the boyfriend he should have picked her up and brought her home if not then drink with her…

  10. Nan says:

    I, too, didn’t have control when I first started drinking. I started at 19 & by the time I was 23 I realized I got too crazy at times, was unpredictable & just stopped for about 5 yrs.

    When I stopped I poured all of my enthusiasm into ‘being perfect’. I downed tons of vitamins, rollerbladed, worked out & became a total product junkie.

    During that quest I discovered by accident a cure to beat cellulite. I’ve shared it w/many & it worked for them, also.

    Go to the vitamin aisle (should check w/Doc just in case) & pick yourself up a bottle of Niacin. See, for most people Niacin has a reaction where your body flushes all over. It tingles, it slighty burns but opens up all of the capillaries at the skins surface. Workout the part of the body you want to fix during the ‘flush’. When the capillaries return to normal & drain, they’ll take all of the stuff you don’t want w/it. Niacin works great also if you have to fake a fever or maladie to get out of whatever it is you wanna get out of. You’ll look like you have a sudden rash or are sporting a 103 fever. Doesn’t work for everyone, though. For those it does work for be careful as now is available ‘no flush Niacin’ & you don’t want that. Check the label & w/your doctor.

  11. jaundicemachine says:

    As a rule, I dislike anyone who identifies with the O.C, but in this case, I do feel sorry for her. Poor bitch can wear ankle-length skirts and the paps will still snap her with cellulite. What a curse!

    Oh, and her boyfriend is a dick, too.

  12. Linds says:

    What an ass… the boyfriend I mean. If he has such a problem with her drinking, he should have taken her home, not left her by herself. And then talked about it the next day. I’m sure he’s never had too much to drink… hopefully his friends left him laying in his own puke.

  13. oxa says:

    Sshe is the ass, falling down drunk, making a scene and refusing to stop drinking. I do not blame him for bailing, rehab did nothing for her skanky ass.

  14. princess says:

    No doubt he’s a dick… but isn’t she the one who a couple of weeks ago said that she only regretted her DUI because it lumped her with Paris and Lyndsey? I’m guessing that this isn’t the first time she has behaved this way.

    She seems to get a lot of press…has she done anything other than the OC?

  15. WTF?!?! says:

    Beware of Niacin! The so-called “niacin reaction” feels like someone has set you on fire from the inside out, it literally feels like flames are coming from your gut through your muscles and out every single pore of your skin. Light-headedness ensues, it’s an ugly thing, and very, very common.

    But back to Mischa: it’s not like the guy left her there, he went inside to the bar. I’m sure he got her home safely. Being “only 22″ doesn’t cut it when this gal has been a professional drinker for at least three years.

  16. Donna says:

    The boyfriend was right to ditch her. She’s the ass.

  17. Linda says:

    I’ve been with guys like that. They truly suck. But when you find the right kind, they cover for you because they know you’ll cover for them when something like that happens to them.

    He’s the creep.

  18. kimberly says:

    whatever. We don’t know how they are in their relationship. I’d ditch a stupid drunk dumb “starlett” just like he did.

    Maybe he doesn’t want to be with a lush? Or a needy SOOOO OVER actress who thought she was the shhhhh b/c she had a “hit show” that was so stupid in the writing that all they could do was cancel? And it wasn’t because she left either!

    She sucks and he didn’t do anything wrong. That place could easily call a cab to take that stupid bitch to rehab or to her home.

    okay i’m done venting honesty.

  19. Snowblood says:

    Kimberly, if you were MY girlfriend or just normal old friend, and you got drunk and acted like a “stupid drunk dumb starlett” and were so bad in the drink that you were running into strangers and falling all over the place on the brink of blacking out, I would HELP you.

    I would quietly excuse myself from the party/dinner, and without causing a mortifying scene, I’d gently take you home, either to my pad where I could make sure you were OK ’til morning, or to your own place, where I’d make sure you got inside, and drank some water, and weren’t going to pass out in a pool of your own vomit and suffocate to death or something.

    And THEN, the next day, I’d have a serious, no-bullshit talk with you about the problems your inability to hold your booze is causing upon our relationship, and upon HER health and future.

    But, YOU would not do any of this? What kind of a friend or girlfriend would you be, if you acted just like this guy did with Barton? Ask yourself that.

  20. javagirl1 says:

    She’s not the first star to get falling down drunk, and she won’t be the last.

  21. mollination says:

    I want snowblood to be MY friend :mrgreen:

  22. Orangejulius says:

    I’ll second that. That’s the kind of friend I am.

  23. smarter than you says:

    actually not almost everyone has cellulite that extensive… it can be avoided with a healthy diet and regular exercise… it’s too bad that 75% of adult americans are overweight and, thus,think this is healthy and normal

  24. AE says:

    Nan: Any sure fire tips for dark circles under the eyes? Sleep is not an option (at least for the next few days).

    I’m with mollination and Orangejulius – Snowblood is just the best.

  25. Orangejulius says:

    Um, smarter than you – If you didn’t sound so much like me, I’d like to whap you upside the head.

  26. AE says:

    Oh wow … I got so caught up in the niacin remedy and warning that I never clicked on the pictures. Yep, she definitely should not wear her skirt hiked up her ass.

  27. geronimo says:

    Hurrah for Snowblood. Priorities (and heart) in all the right places, as usual!

  28. xiaoecho says:

    this girl only ever gets bad publicity. there must be a reason for this. she doesn’t seem to be very popular in the industry

    her friend looks like she’s got boy bits

  29. Skank Basher says:

    She’s got some serious cellulite on the back of her thighs, as well as a serious lack of good judgment. And, no orangejulius, not everyone has cellulite. I’m 53 years old and I don’t have ripples like that anywhere on my person. Gross! 8O

  30. pixie says:

    I agree that that guy’s a jerkoff – what a prude – everyone gets pissed once in a while he’s probably so boring she had to drink herself into a stupor :twisted:

  31. Snowblood says:

    Aw, thanks Molli, AE, OrangeJulius & Geronimo! I’ve got nothing but love for all my cool & beautiful CeleBitchy internet friends here!

    There’s a LOT of awesome people here at Celebitchy.com. Everyone’s so different; different opinions, different personalities, different ideas and writing/speaking styles, but all the same in one important way – just all-around awesome-hearted women )& even the occasional guy) whom I’d definitely DEFinitely enjoy kicking it with in any real-life scenario.

    :D :D :D

    (in Charles Bukowski’s “Barfly” voice) Drinks for all my friends!
