Listen up, Carrie, Len, and Bruno: Actress Mischa Barton wants on the next season of Dancing With the Stars!
With a DUI collar, a string of failed romances, and two weeks in the psych ward at Cedars-Sinai weighing down her resume, things aren’t exactly soaring for the once promising star of The O.C. Mischa’s certain landing a spot on the upcoming 12th cycle of ABC’s popular ballroom dancing competition will help get the ball rolling again. Just look what appearing on DWTS did for Dirty Dancing actress Jennifer Grey.
A friend of Barton’s tells In Touch Weekly: “Jennifer’s hot in Hollywood now…Mischa watches the show religiously and she thinks she can hold her own and maybe even win it. She likes the idea of being on a top-rated show too.”
After all, Mischa’s no stranger to hoofing. The 25-year-old actress studied dance at the Professional Children’s School in Manhattan once upon a time.
