There’s nothing better than a celeb scorned. Sore losers are a source of curiosity and in celeb form, the thrill runs even deeper. Enter Mischa Barton. While she was kicked off from the U.S. version of Dancing With The Stars in early 2016 (because, well, she was a trainwreck to watch), Barton is now speaking out about her experience on the show.
“Ugh. I had no idea it would be so bad,” she told the Ringer. “I got told off by my dancer. I was supposed to control the costumes, I was told that I could do the design aspect of it, that’s kind of the reason why I agreed to do it.”
Barton said she was also promised creative control when she signed on to do the show. “That didn’t happen. It wasn’t collaborative like a choreographer on a film set … I was so confused by it,” she explained. “It was like The Hunger Games. It was all a popularity contest. It was awful. I was so glad to get kicked off.”
Perhaps a little bitter? Let’s re-live one of her performances here. (Note: critics described Barton in this performance as “slightly sedated”.)
