Here is the network description for Mischa’s upcoming guest role on Law & Order: SVU
03/03/2010 (09:00PM – 10:00PM) (Wednesday) : DETECTIVE BENSON (MARISKA HARGITAY) GETS EMOTIONALLY INVESTED IN A CASE WHEN SHE AND DETECTIVE STABLER (CHRIS MELONI) INVESTIGATE THE MURDERS OF SEVERAL YOUNG PROSTITUTES. When a series of young prostitutes are found murdered with homemade prayer cards attached to their bodies, Detectives Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay) and Eliot Stabler (Chris Meloni) struggle to find the common thread. However, just when they think that they’ve found the murderer, Captain Donald Cragen (Dann Florek) informs the detectives that another victim named Gladys (guest star Mischa Barton) has turned up with a prayer card. This time she survived. As the case unfolds, Benson finds herself getting emotionally invested in the survivor until she is forced to make a decision that she isn’t ready to face. Also starring: Ice-T (Detective Odafin Tutuola), Richard Belzer (Detective John Munch), Tamara Tunie (Dr. Melinda Warner), and B.D. Wong (Dr. George Huang).
The US DVD release of Mischa’s recent horror/thriller Homecoming is due on April 27th, 2010. This version seems a little different to the international release as the US disc has different cover art and will reportedly feature deleted scenes.

Paramount Home Entertainment has announced Homecoming which stars Mischa Barton, Jessica Stroup, and Matt Long. The Morgan J. Freeman directed horror will be available to own from the 27th April. The only extra material will be additional scenes.
A former small-town golden boy (Matt Long) and his new girlfriend (Jessica Stroup) come back to visit his hometown and discover his high school sweetheart (Mischa Barton) has developed an unhealthy obsession with him. His ex-girlfriend’s desperation slowly but surely becomes apparent, and all hell breaks loose as she does everything it takes to get him back.
Mischa Barton places great importance on experimenting with fashion.
The actress-turned-designer – who has launched her own range of handbags – believes it is necessary to take risks when choosing outfits, as this process will help you discover your own sense of style.
She said: “I style myself and I don’t always get it right, but that’s half the fun – you have to experiment to get your own look. It’s not worth getting upset about. Be yourself and wear something that embodies your own sense of style.”
Be yourself and wear something that embodies your own sense of style
The 24-year-old beauty works hard to select her own wardrobe and believes it is important to look to others for ideas, while understanding you might not always get it right.
She told more! magazine: “I am inspired by Marianne Faithfull, Vivienne Westwood and Anita Pallenberg. I also think Pixie Geldof has cute style.
“I like to have fun with fashion and make it my own. I like to try new shapes – sometimes it works, sometimes not, but it’s always fun trying, which is what fashion is all about!”
LOS ANGELES, Calif. — Mariska Hargitay is closing the case on Mischa Barton rumors.
The “Law & Order: SVU” star called reports that the former “The Beautiful Life: TBL” was unprofessional while filming the NBC drama on Monday in New York “fiction.”
“She’s really knocking it out of the park on ‘SUV,’” Mariska told Access Hollywood’s Shaun Robinson on the red carpet at the 2010 Screen Actors Guild Awards in LA. “Her work has shined… Mischa did some very beautiful, touching work and quite frankly, blew me away.”
The star then turned to Access’ cameras, declaring, “The story is fiction!”
The New York Daily News’ Gatecrasher column previously claimed Mischa had “badly bombed” during filming of a guest spot as a prostitute on the NBC crime show.
As you’ve all no doubt read, the tabloids have decided to write fictional stories about Mischa forgetting lines and not getting along with cast on Law & Order. If you follow the mischa-b Twitter page, you’ll have seen re-tweets that I’ve passed on from crew on the show dimissing these stories. And now Mariska Hargitay has come to Mischa’s defense:
Mariska Hargitay now with Shaun. She puts rumors to rest about Mischa Barton. She said the former “Beautiful Life” actress is “an amazing professional, lovely to work with. She does good work.” She looked to our camera and said, “This gossip is fiction!” Access Hollywood
Mischa Barton’s landlord says the actress is refusing to pay rent on her $7,000-a-month apartment in New York City.
Landlord M.R.A. Realties Inc. says in a lawsuit that Barton rebuffed efforts to collect the last three months’ worth of rent on her flat in the trendy Tribeca neighborhood.
Barton’s representatives had no immediate response. The landlord wants Barton to pay the rent and legal fees.
The 23-year-old Barton also lives in Los Angeles. The lawsuit filed Thursday says her one-year lease on the Manhattan apartment began in September.
At the time, she was in “The Beautiful Life,” a CW series about the New York modeling world. The show was canceled in September.
Barton rose to fame playing Marissa Cooper on Fox’s teen drama “The O.C.”
My Skin Affair caught up with Mischa and had a chat about her skin care routine. Enjoy!
What is your skin care routine?
I live by the Clinique 3-step Skin Care System. In the morning I start off with the Mild Facial Soap bar, then the Clarifying Lotion #2 followed by the amazing Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion. The best part about this program is that you can alter it to match your skin’s needs. I follow that up with the Neocutis Lumiere Eye Cream, it’s super light so you can wear it throughout the day. At night, I love to add in the Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask as a treat after a long day on set. It has a great citrus scent and foams and leaves your skin so clean and soft! And Estee Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair is a miracle worker if I ever have a dry patch or any skin problems, it literally works overnight!
What are your favorite skin care products?
You can’t beat Crème de la Mer Moisturizing Cream when you want your skin to be well moisturized, silky, smooth and soft! I fit this into my routine 3-4 times a week just to give my skin that certain je ne sais quoi! I also couldn’t live without the Clinique Take The Day Off Makeup Remover, it’s so easy, fast and gentle on my skin.
What’s in your purse?
I always have the Terry Rose Lip Balm – gives your lips great moisture with just the slightest hint of color. I also carry the small bottles of Bliss High Intensity Hand Cream with me everywhere, I must have one in every bag!
How do you pamper your skin?
I LOVE the L’Occitane Shea Butter Foot Cream. I put it on before bed with socks and it leaves my feet so smooth!
Which product is your current “must have”?
I just discovered the Fresh Brown Sugar Body Polish and love how it leaves my skin incredibly soft, even after the first time!
Do you have a favorite spa?
I really enjoy the Silk Day Spa in Manhattan. It’s so serene and provides for the best escape from the busy city.
What’s your favorite spa treatment?
I love the Silk Melt Away massage, it completely makes all the stresses in my life disappear, if only for an hour.
Do you have a favorite tip/advice for skin care?
Protect your skin! You absolutely have to protect your skin from the sun, the higher the SPF the better! I like to use Clinique Sun SPF 50 Face Cream when I’m outside, or Stila’s Sheer Color Tinted Moisturizer on a day-to-day basis. It gives an incredibly even tone to my skin and has a great 30 SPF to protect my face!

I think I’ll turn this information into a permanent section for the site, as I’m sure some people might want to reference these products and try them out themselves at a later stage.
Mischa Barton (“The O.C.”) will play a pregnant prostitute who turns to Detective Benson (Mariska Hargitay) for help in a life-or-death decision (date TBA) in “Law & Order: SVU.”
