Even though I barely made it through the first episode of The Beautiful Life (that show was not good, y’all), I’m nevertheless saddened that CW has decided to pull the plug and cancel it after two episodes. I’m in shock, and I suspect I’m not the only one:
While the show itself was quite bland, I nevertheless cannot understand a world that would deny us Mischa Barton in a prime-time, youth-oriented soap opera. This news is like the dysmal third season of The O.C., when the show became awful and Marissa Cooper was killed in a car accident, but now I can’t blame it on the public school kids. When you look it up in the French dictionary, this is what they call “le sadness.” But we haven’t just lost Mischa. We’ve also lost this:
Goodbye, Stomp Stomp. I may have once mistook you for Mischa Barton, but after watching the premiere I realized that you were in fact a different actress who looked incredibly similar to her. Perhaps it was because of your shared love of racoon eyes. My bad. Your genius at forceful catwalk steps is unique and exciting, and I shall miss it. Particularly when CW inevitably takes this clip down in the next few weeks in an effort to pretend this show didn’t happen.
There’s ultimately nothing that can fix the fact that the world’s now got a little less The Beautiful Life, the show with so little to genuinely offer yet so much fabulous camp potential, so let’s all share a moment with Mischa:
Me too, girl. Me too.
