It's been seven years since The O.C. ended, but the drama continues—or so Radar Online would like its readers to believe. On Thursday, Nov. 14, the gossip site claimed that Rachel Bilson has reached out to her former costars in an effort to shun Mischa Barton, who left the teen soap at the end of Season 3. An insider claimed that Bilson, who currently stars in The CW's Hart of Dixie, "is the one who basically made it be known that it's okay for everybody to wash their hands of Mischa and not forgive her past transgressions. It's really sad because Mischa's literally trying to set up dinners to make amends and Rachel is telling everybody to 'ignore her and she'll go away.'" Juicy, yes. True, no. A rep for Bilson slammed the fictitious report, telling The Huffington Post, "The Radar Online 'story' is a complete fabrication.
