Mischa Explains Meltdown on The View

Mischa Barton appeared as a guest on The View this morning to promote her upcoming show The Beautiful Life. But what we all wanted to hear about was her big meltdown! Luckily for us, Mischa indulged. But she conveniently made her hospital trip sound like one big misunderstanding.

Mischa told the ladies, "I mean, it was just … I was overwhelmed. I had too much work going on. I had a surgery for my wisdom teeth that went really badly.

"I had been in the hospital. I had two surgeries on my wisdom teeth. I had four taken out and they had gotten it really badly wrong. They had to drill into my jaw and I was just in really excruciating pain.”

She continued, “I had an infection and a dry socket and I woke up on a Sunday morning and there was no doctor available,” she continued. “I was trying to take the minimum amount of pain killers and get through it because I had to go to work soon and I was getting ready to go do this show, ‘The Beautiful Life,’ and meanwhile I still had a schedule to travel.

"I was going to Europe. I was going to London. I had things to do and I was prepping to do photo shoots and I was just overwhelmed. I had so much work to do and the surgery had gone so badly for me. And I think that I was just starting to feel completely overwhelmed. It was just too much to have this surgery go so wrong.”

Mischa tried to explain to the women why exactly she was admitted into a psychiatric hospital, rather than just a regular one. She told them, "Basically if you say anything negative in the hospital and they think you're a risk to yourself, they hold you, they won't let you go."

Hmmm, do we buy this story? Everyone goes through getting their wisdom teeth out, and we've never heard of anything so dramatic! Is she hiding something? You be the judge! Watch the video below!
