On August 5th, 2003 everything changed. That is right! “Welcome to the OC bitch” became a catch phrase, and Mischa Barton had a job! That’s right! Fox aired a new show called “The O.C.” which was like “Beverly Hills 90210” but way more badass. They had more sex, more partying, and more Ryan Atwood which is always important for any television show.
I was kind of young to be watching a show like this, I guess I was just about 12 but my mom thought it would be good to watch it together so I could learn how not to act. I don’t know why she thought over dosing in an alley in Tijuana, Mexico was bad, but whatever. “The O.C.” was absolutely incredible, and still to this day it is a great show. So many people won’t be able to watch it though, thanks Netflix.
Ryan Atwood was the first television character that I absolutely fell in love with. I mean Jack Hunter was hot and all but Ryan Atwood, oh my god. The badboy turned sweetheart! How could you not love him? Then of course Marissa Cooper, the winest rich girl to ever live. Summer Roberts, the ultimate bad bitch, and Seth Cohen, the adorable nerd. These four were amazing.
Mischa Barton really killed the show though, I mean she died and left us with a mediocre show because at the end of the day Ryan and Marissa were the most important television couple of all time.
Anyway, big shout out to this show which opened doors for greats like “One Tree Hill” and “Gossip Girl” to be at thing.
“Who are you?”
“Whoever you want me to be.”
Cam Gigandet gets extremely candid when talking about his former The O.C. co-stars including Ben McKenzie, Mischa Barton, and more with Elle magazine.
When asked if he kept in touch with anyone from the show, the 31-year-old actor replied, “No. Actually Ben McKenzie was kind of mean to me. I hadn’t done anything at that point and he was a little bit of an ass. But I love him. I think he’s a great actor and I love Southland.”
When asked about Mischa, he replied, “Mischa? I didn’t really…Was she there?” he said. “I don’t even have memories of her.”
“I learned a lot. But the things that I remember now—none of them are good,” Cam admitted. “It was only the third or fourth season. Those kids were f—ing miserable. They were just—they would not remember their lines on purpose. They were young.” (credit: Justjared.com)
Well there are few things that I hate more than people bashing the very thing that made them famous. I hated it when Justin Timberlake used to back his boy band days and I hate it when no named actors bash the show that made them slightly famous. Cam Gigandet, don’t you dare sit there and say that you don’t even know if Mischa was there! Your character killed her! She was your character’s love interest on the show, don’t try and act cool.
Let’s be real, we all know that the cast members of The O.C. were miserable, they have said it out right. Well at least Benjamin McKenzie admitted to having a bad attitude for a while. Cam this is such old news and you just wanted to be in the press. You haven’t been in anything since that terrible movie with X-Tina and Cher.
Who cares if the cast members were miserable and all hated each other? I don’t care to be completely honest. We all know that Mischa Barton was a hot ass mess. We all know that Benjamin McKenzie was far too old to be playing a high school student. None of that matters though! They put together an incredible show and that is that.
So Cam go back to reliving your minor fame as that bad vampire in Twilight that almost killed Kristen Stewart. You’re hot but etremely irrelevant.
Finding out that Seth Cohen and Blair Waldorf are engaged is easily the highlight of my day. My two favorite television shows can finally have a cross-over episode..Oh right, both of them are no longer on the air. Well anyway, I want to send a big congratulations to Leighton Meester and Adam Brody. At first I didn’t believe it since they have only been together 10 months but their reps confirmed it to People Magazine! Truthfully Adam Brody has always bothered me, I feel like he thinks he is a much better actor than he actually is. Leighton on the other hand is flawless, like a swan except nice rather than evil like the actual bird. Shout outs to the happy couple and I hope when the wedding happens there is a big Gossip Girl and a big OC reunion, there has to be right? Although on the grooms side I know that we wont see Rachel Bilson or Mischa Barton since he dated Rachel and threw shade at Mischa. Maybe Benjamin McKenzie will be there, and all of us can rejoice. I kind of doubt that Blake will be on the bride’s side either though, I feel like they just hated each other.
California here we come, xoxo.
