Mischa Barton was a guest on “The View” this morning, and attempted to explain her recent hospitalization.
She started out saying, “I mean, really it was blown out of proportion, so it’s kind of silly now to be talking about it because I’m so fine now, but it was really just a bad time for me. It was sort of one of those things that was like perfect storm. Everything happened at once.”
Then, she talked about the dental surgery as the needle that broke the camel’s back:
“I had an infection and a dry socket and I woke up on a Sunday morning and there was no doctor available,” Barton continues. “I was trying to take the minimum amount of pain killers and get through it because I had to go to work soon and I was getting ready to go do this show, ‘The Beautiful Life,’ and meanwhile I still had a schedule to travel. I was going to Europe. I was going to London. I had things to do and I was prepping to do photo shoots and I was just overwhelmed. I had so much work to do and the surgery had gone so badly for me. And I think that I was just starting to feel completely overwhelmed. It was just too much to have this surgery go so wrong.”
She also talked about her intense fear of needles and a new found respect for people who live with chronic pain. Then she says, “Anyway, I got really healthy since then,” Barton adds. “I’ve just been doing everything I can to keep my job happy and healthy and I’ve moved to New York with my two dogs and I have a great apartment I just got.”
Now, many are quick to say her explanation is confusing and that she still seems a little crazy – but haven’t we all been there? For once, I have to sympathize with some celebrity madness. Call me crazy, but I’d probably freak out too.
