Heidi Montag & Spencer Pratt Mischa's the Answer to Our Prayers!!!


Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt are huge fans of Mischa Barton ... 'cause they say it's basically divine intervention she's joining them on the reboot of "The Hills."

We got Heidi and Spencer shopping Thursday at Couture Kids on Robertson and asked them about their newest cast member ... and Spencer says he's been praying for Mischa's presence for a loooong time.

It's interesting ... Heidi and Spencer say they never crossed paths with Mischa on the Hollywood party circuit. So, they can't wait to get started working with her on "The Hills: New Beginnings."


As for Mischa ... we got her Wednesday at Craig's in WeHo and she looked thrilled to be crossing over into reality TV.

For those bashing Mischa's career path, save it -- Spencer ain't havin' it!

Just be ready for lots of references to her time starring on "The O.C."

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

The last time we heard from Mischa, she was being sued for crashing a U-Haul into a building ... so this seems like a better use of her time.

Here's to new beginnings.

OC Reunion Show At Parc?

The cast of "The OC" had a mini-reunion Saturday, with Adam Brody, Benjamin McKenzie and his on-screen, six-episode girlfriend Sadie aka Nikki Reed, all partying at Parc. While McKenzie was flying solo, Reed showed up with "Road Trip" star DJ Qualls, and Brody was spotted hanging out with singer Gavin DeGraw.

"Grindhouse" babe Rosario Dawson hit up Teddy's with one of the film's faux-trailer directors, Eli Roth, on Friday and while both saved a paparazzo from crashing into an R2-D2 mailbox, they remained quiet when asked about the rumored on-set romance between Robert Rodriguez and Rose McGowan.

Mr. Chow was also a hotspot over the weekend, with rehab graduates Brandon "Greasy Bear" Davis and Courtney Love stopping in (separately, relax!), along with visits from will.i.am and an autograph-gracious Anne Hathaway.

Orange Crushed -- FOX Cancels "The OC"

Like you didn't see this one coming down the 405?

After killing off their most famous character, turning Summer into a hippie, and forcing Ryan to fight just about everybody who looked at him the wrong way, the folks behind "The OC" have finally thrown in the beach towel.

"This feels like the best time to bring the show to its close," said Josh Schwartz, the show's creator and executive producer. According to FOX, on February 22 the struggling series will ride off into the California sunset one last time.

"The OC" was an overnight sensation when it first debuted in 2003. But darker plotlines led to a departure from what the show did best -- lighthearted comedy mixed with teen angst -- culminating in the death of Mischa Barton's character last season, and now the death of the series.



Celebs Bling Their Jeans

Tons of A-List celebs have been busy this summer finding the Picasso inside of them and bedazzling jeans for charity... and their creations could be yours!

J&Company, a jean god to the stars, has joined forces with top celebrities such as Eva Longoria, Ben Affleck, Kristin Cavallari and Alicia Keys to 'Bling your Blues!'

The 'Bling your Blues' campaign is a benefit to raise money for the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. Over the summer, J&Company has sent out a pair of jeans and bling essentials to some of the hottest celebs around. Each celeb then must razzle-dazzle their jeans to whatever inspires them, and their creations are interesting, to say the least!

Take a sneak peak
at what a few celebs came up with once they were given a pair of jeans, crystals, paint pens, markers, studs, string and patches.

Each pair of celebrity-created jeans will be auctioned off on eBay beginning September 1st!

Smells Like Teen Angst

Since her character was killed off on the season finale of "The O.C." you probably won't be seeing Mischa Barton on the show anymore -- unless it was all a dream or her evil twin surfaces -- but you can still smell like her.

The hit teen melodrama has spawned a fragrance line called, appropriately enough, The O.C. for Her and The O.C. for Him.

The O.C. for Her has a fruity, floral scent perfect for the sexy girl next door who enjoys drunken benders in Tijuana or shooting her boyfriend's brother in the back.

With its aroma of amber and musk, The O.C. for Him is the must have cologne for the sensitive hipster who fakes their way into Brown or burns down a model home.

Priced at under $25 each, fans won't need an "O.C." sized trust fund to get a whiff of Newport's in crowd.

Both scents hit stores in October.

How to Save 'The OC'

With word coming down that FOX cut the episode order for "The OC" from 22 to 16 (and cancellation now looming heavily), we here at TMZ got to wondering: Are things so desperate that it's time to try and bring back Mischa Barton? How would they even do such a thing?

Here are a few ideas:

It was all a ... well, you know

But whose dream is it? Ryan's? Marissa's? Sandy's? Nope. It would be Ryan's brother Trey's dream.

Let's just assume Trey was in a coma after Marissa shot him at the end of season two. While in the coma, he has this dream about what would happen after he wakes up. He creates all this heartache for Marissa and even has her end up with another bad boy (Volchok). The fact that the bad boy relationship leads to Marissa dying makes Trey realize things never would have worked between them.

Rachel Bilson A TMZ Fan?

"Oh no... YOU guys!" said "The OC" star when TMZ ace cameraman Josh Levine caught up with her last night at a benefit for the LA Mission.

We were able to steal a moment from Miss Bilson were she touched on Father's Day, lamenting that she doesn't know what to get her dad, that her iPod is filled with Kelis (a guilty pleasure of hers) and that her cell ringtone is music from The Shins. Interestingly, in the middle of her interview Rachel stopped to check out boyfriend Adam Brody pose for photos on carpet, commenting "he's stealing my limelight!"

You'll be happy to know she did get a free TMZ t-shirt out of the deal.
