Mischa Barton to leave the OC?

Apparently Mischa is getting a bit tired of her role on The OC. She is often late for work, or skips it being “sick”. Gossip has it as dissatisfaction with the show ratings and her perception as a bratty teen on the show.

The publication quotes insiders who work on the show as being annoyed by Barton’s sickouts and tardiness – especially since she’s been known to hit the town and party hearty (and is the frequent subject of gossip-column items).

“She’s definitely flirting with leaving the show,” says one source. “But the real problem now is that she isn’t taking work seriously.”…

“We don’t comment on rumor or speculation,” said a spokeswoman for Warner Bros., which produces “The O.C.” – New York Post

Who knows if the rumours are true, but we’d miss her!

      no one will ever really know why she left the show..there are so many rumors going around that are probably not even true..its just gossip to make everybody talk. i even read a interview with josh and he said her character died b/c there was nothing left to do with her b/c she pretty much done everything, and everything from season 1 led up to her death or something like that..he never said anything about her being late or bad acting, he actually said she was a great actress that always done her best. i will miss her, she was my fav. no one will replace her, not even taylor. If marissa would not have died, taylor would not even be a part of season 4…she is just there for a new storyline..too bad she is only in the spot light for only 16 episodes.

      Oh man, the OC was like THE best show EVER, and now it sorta sucks that marissa is gone! I really think that somehow she should magically come back to life, like make her in acoma, and then sh can wake up or watever and then the show can be the best show ever again! Please Mischa, everyone wants you back, you were the best thing on the show, you cant give up!! What is Ryan gonna do? Summer? If you came back then I guaruntee that they would most likely bring back the OC, and then I would be the happiest person alive, dont go Mischa, come back!!

      The biggest OC fan, EVER
