No one official is commenting on the record, but Entertainment Weekly's Michael Ausiello
reported today that The CW
may be on the verge of moving on from Mischa Barton
. While the actress is being involuntarily held for psychiatric observation, producers of The Beautiful Life: TBL
are in the process of creating and casting a new female character that would essentially replace Mischa Barton's supermodel Sonja Stone seen in the pilot presentation of the new series. Yesterday, it was announced that production was pushed back a week - reportedly because sets for the series were not yet ready for prime time. Lensing for The Beautiful Life: TBL now gets underway on July 31st in advance of a September 16th launch on The CW.
