There’s a little good news for The Beautiful Life — the new show which features Mischa Barton as a part of the ensemble cast. About 2 million viewers tuned in over the weekend to watch encore airings of the premiere episode, according to executive producer Ashton Kutcher’s Tweet. The first episode also is available to download for free on iTunes.
This Wednesday, the second episode of The Beautiful Life, 1.2 “The Beautiful Aftermath” will air at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Wednesday on The CW.
Here’s the official description for the episode:
Chris (Ben Hollingsworth) believes his chances at a modeling career are over and prepares to leave New York City until he receives a surprise phone call from Claudia (Elle Macpherson).
Claudia informs Raina (Sara Paxton) that she needs to focus more on her career and less on her new relationship with Chris.
Isaac (Corbin Bleu) confronts Vivienne (guest star Jamie Murray, Dexter) about her behavior towards him at a go-see, and the two end up working out an arrangement that serves both their needs.
Marissa (Ashley Madekwe) accuses Sonja (Mischa Barton) of stealing the Versace campaign from her and decides to seek revenge in a very public way, which leads Sonja to Cole (Nico Tortorella) for assistance.
Marissa invites Raina’s brother, Alex (guest star Billy Magnussen, As the World Turns), to a party hosted by Nina Garcia (Project Runway), where more secrets about Raina’s past are revealed.
If people give the show a chance, I think they will really enjoy this episode. There should be a lot of good drama from Mischa’s character Sonja and Marissa (Ashley Madekwe).
I’m also looking forward to watching the romance develop between Chris and Raina (sweet!).
And I want to find out more about Sonja’s past in regards to the baby she has and why she doesn’t want the father to be around her. It looks like Marissa will be sharing the news with everyone once she gets a hold of Sonja’s phone.
In the preview, Marissa says, “A person’s whole life can be on their phone.” So true. The things you can learn from who a person calls and reading their text messages!
