Mischa Barton

Hospitalized

5/28/2007 11:28 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

barton-1TMZ has learned that actress Mischa Barton was rushed to the hospital this evening after suffering an adverse reaction to medication.

Sources tell TMZ that the former "OC" star was at a friend's Memorial Day BBQ enjoying a few holiday cocktails when she began to feel extremely ill. Mischa, who has been quite sick with bronchitis since traveling to Cannes, London and Paris the past several weeks, apparently didn't get the memo -- you can't drink alcohol while taking antibiotics!

The 21-year-old celeb was rushed to an undisclosed medical facility in Los Angeles, where we are told she is "resting comfortably."

A rep for Barton tells TMZ that the starlet is with family and "feeling much better."

Leave her alone.
geez.

Why do any of her medical conditions matter to you at all.


Everyone talking crap about her on this is LAME.
You know you wouldn't say half of it to her face, you'd be running around looking for a pen and camerma.

Antibiotics my foot. Many people drink while on them with no ill effect. There probably had to be something else in her system. But what?

Oh mush mush!

What not so talented actress and spokeswhore created a huge scene at a Memorial Day house party on Sunday at the home of Nicole Richie's best friend?

Apparently, she did so many mushrooms - in addition to a lot of cocaine - that she thought she was dying!

What a fart-tastic way to ring in the holiday.

Update: TMZ has confirmed our scoop, though they're claiming Mischa suffered an allergic reaction to antibiotics and alcohol

I feel bad that she was sick. but what else is new? Just another person mixing alcohol and drugs when they shouJDNT , People have died this way. and yes, there are certain antibiotics a person cant use with alcohol. The antibiotic either wont work, or you can have a bad drug reaction, which obviously is what hAPPENED IN THIS CASE/ .

Most people would be offended by these actions stars do outside filming and in fact have done for generations. How many stars do you think have done these things for generations?

Before the internet and mobilephones they could party, do drugs etc. without most the public knowing and in fact some cops properly covered for them.

Filming is somewhat demanding on the emontional plan and being a rather private person, I don't think that I could film a nude scene with someone I don't know and properly does even like.

The other aspect is the money. We can seen young stars come into money, buying a fast car and wreak it. James Dean did not survive. Lohan did, but in a way drugs or not it is the same thing. They loose control when they suddenly are rich.

But I have a solution and want to reach out to them with a helping hand.

The idea is the Celeberty Chain gang.

Whenever they break the law doing DUI or using drugs, just convict them to a 12 hour duty cleaning up the area around Griffith Park and Topanga State Park.

Let them buy their own neophone line leg iron made of steel with a free color of choice and a meter of chain. Then they can report in every day between 5 am and 6 am to be hooked up to the chain. The advantage should be that they would be too tired to party every evening and we would be safe in the street. Only Sundays and when they are filming they can get off the chain.

That should be a help for them until they can control their time off. It should even be possible for them to volunteer if they feel like they are loosing control. It would serve as a good example for our youth - way better than putting them into jail.

What she do hook up to a booze / bong siphon hose? Millions of peeps have a little to drink while on antibiotics with no hospitalization to follow.
( kids do not attempt at home) And please don't give me the "allergic reaction" line!
She looked like a strung out starving artist in that last photo TMZ had of her puffin on a homeroll. Hopefully she will be ok and get back to work. Her unemployment checks must be running low by now.
