In response to her neighbors calling the cops on a crazy half-naked chick screaming random nonsense hanging over a backyard fence, Mischa Barton has a thoughtful explanation, issued to People magazine, naturally:
On the evening of the 25th, I went out with a group of friends to celebrate my birthday. While having drinks, I realized that something was not right as my behavior was becoming erratic and continued to intensify over the next several hours. I voluntarily went to get professional help, and I was informed by their staff that I had been given GHB.
She was drugged. That would explain it. Also, retroactively, why she was punching nurses at Cedars-Sinai in 2009 before being committed against her will for two weeks of psychiatric evaluations. And the DUIs.
This seems more like a first-time this has happened kind of explanation. Like when Janice the uptight chick from Accounting suddenly wants to make out with everybody at the office Christmas party. We get that she can’t handle her booze. We all secretly suspected she was Asian.
Barton went on to explain that her date rape drugging should serve as a warning to other young women out there to be aware of your surroundings. Supposedly, those surroundings would be your friends taking you out for your birthday. You’re 31. You’re not a young woman anymore. If I’m your neighbor, I’m building a taller fence.
