Mischa Barton?s Out On Bail

Thursday, December 27, 2007


As a follow-up to the Gossip Girls story earlier today, Mischa Barton was released from police custody this morning at approximately 10am to her parents. As she exited the police station, the OC actress didn't acknowledge the paparazzi. Mommy and Daddy Barton drove her home in their Mercedes-Benz.

And this story is already blowing up, with speculation about whether or not Mischa is falling into the party-girl-jello-mold set forth by young Hollywood celebrities like Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton.

However, with all of the mistakes of her Tinseltown peers, you gotta wonder why Barton didn't simply hire a driver to cart her around. It's not like she doesn't have the money!

The answer to that question, according to Dr. Harris Stratyner (an addition specialist) is simple. "People with active addiction don't think logically. There's always a certain element of self-sabotage. Why would somebody risk their career? It's a form of self sabotage."

Stratyner also says that Barton's career field could possibly heighten the severity of her genetically-predisposed tendency toward addiction. "We see a higher incidence of abuse among people who are in the limelight because they're under tremendous pressure. There's a tendency to self medicate."

His recommendation for treatment? "She needs a loved one to take control and get some help. We can't allow people to hit rock bottom. We used to think people hit bottom but sometimes you have to raise a person's bottom. Their bottom could be death."
