Mischa Barton? Hoboken?

Do the children remember Mischa Barton?

She used to have a regular gig on a hit TV show, she dated that dirty singer Cisco Adler and his massive gonads, and for about 20 minutes she was considered a style icon. Poor thing, now she pedals Keds shoes. And according to New York Magazine she's living in Hoboken, New Jersey.

Who knew? Who cares?

UPDATE: As noted by readers, Miz Barton did indeed grow up in a loft on Reade Street in the Tribeca neighborhood of New York City. Records indicate the Senior Bartons still own the loft, but reportedly it has been leased to tenants. Which explains why she's in a RENTAL in New Jersey, rather than in the family digs in Tribeca.

And, as many have noted, the starlet did indeed buy a big house in Bev Hills a couple of years ago. Property records indicate the starlet paid $6,400,064 for her Mediterranean style house which is located on a gated section of Bowmont Drive and measures in at 7,607 square feet with 6 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms.

Mama, Girlfriend owns a house on Bowmont in the Beverly Hills Post Office. Was kinda of expensive. I was surpise she could afford it.

Ok, I'm a bit genuinely confused. I don't understand the 'peddling Keds shoes' part. According to the New York Magazine, she's currently filming a movie in New York with Bruce Willis, and living in Hoboken because her Tribecca apartment is rented out. What am I missing here? I'm sure it's me, being humpday Wednesday and all, lol.

Nevermind, just noticed the Keds link and clicked on it. I see she's appearing in Keds ads now. I completely misread this post, thinking Mischa had fallen on hard times and was broke. Duh me, sowwy.

The question should be.....who is she living with in Hoboken?

i think her big house is pretty interesting, it's like huge and i was suprised too that she could afford it, from what i heard it was about $8,- million

O.K ... She grew up in a Tribeca loft which her parents still own - Mama & Papa are pretty rich, Papa is a banker in Manhattan ...

Mischa owns a home in Beverly Hills that was reportedly $8M when she bought it a few years back - pretty enormous - Her Parents I think have moved out to California now & they live in the main house & Mischa in the guesthouse - That would explain why the Tribeca digs are rented out ...

Mama, I'm a bit disappointed - this post is a bit to Perez'ish - she's a young girl & has been in quite a few films over the past couple of years ... she's a sweetheart in person.

As far as I know she's living in Russia right now, one of my friends is in a movie with her about some stupid band called TaTu, and that's where they have been, though they should be back in about 2 weeks.

But really, who cares? I don't like her.

Anon @ 2:40 PM, curious as to why you don't like her? I don't know her of course, but she seems light years ahead of typical Hollywood bimbos ala Britney, etc. I don't fault her for the fling with Cisco Adler. Lots of girls dabble with a bad boy type or two before they wise up.

She's filming in N.Y right now & I saw her in marc jacobs a few days ago.

Poor girl, her upcoming movies do not sound promising (sorry Mischa fangirls). But she needs the work to support her home in Beverly Hills. last I recall of her in the US was passing out and being rushed to the hospital because she mixed alcohol with her "medication."

And my encounter's with her - a bit bitchy for sure. She does act sweet when in front of the cameras or paparazzi - image is everything.

i think it is funny how a lot of people act like they know her..

lmfao.

many people from l.a & n.y read this blog, do you honestly believe that none of these people are connected in anyway to celebrities [who are normal people with normal everyday lives] i'm sure it would surprise you so perhaps 'lmfao' is a bit premature - not to mention immature.

Well, Hoboken is up and coming or so they've been saying for years now. She's a pioneer. Glad she's no longer with that gross Gonad guy.

Also, Hoboken has some nice views of NYC, so...it ain't that bad.

I'm Anon 2:40. My judgement of Mischa is not based on Cisco Adler. I've never met him, and therefore have no problem with him. I have, though, been around Mischa before, and she's not like people perceive her to be. She's just smarter than others i.e. Lohan.

You are right. I just texted my buddy, she isn't in Russia anymore. Apparently my friend is in Vermont right now, so that's why I thought they were still in Russia. The film is called finding T.a.T.u.

yuck!

Well said. Duh to the earlier post, I mean, probably most of the people on here are from LA. I live in Trousdale Estates, and you see celebrities so often it is nuts. For instance, I somehow run into Bruce Willis here and there, I'm just to chicken to talk to him and tell him how much he rocks.

i never said people in here don't know celebrities. heck, i am practically "one" myself. but i do not think they KNOW misha. anyone can read star magazine and know where she is filming/living.

she may be nice, maybe not..

she may be bitchy, maybe not..

she may own a home in Beverly Hills, maybe not, which may be worth $6, $7, or $8 Million, maybe not

knowing a celebrity may be important to judge one, maybe not.. Who knew?

My sister is a dogwalker and saw her moving in yesterday August 8th. im happy for her, welcome to Hoboken Mischa =)

Phoenix said...

hey Anon, I hear ya. One of my father's Cornell U. buddys & lifelong best friend lived there until he died, a highly successful and well respected doctor. That family was so close to ours, we called the parents 'aunt' and 'uncle' when we visited. They had a truly lovely home and very nice neighbors.

Hoboken is a yuppie hotspot and has been since the 1990s. All my rich college classmates bought condos there in the 90s, and it's got lots of nightlife and upscale shopping. Not surprised she's crashing there while finishing filming.

I know, I cringe when I think of NJ too, but Hoboken is pretty much Manhattan nowadays.

For a second I thought you were talking about Stonehenge.

Where she lives in Hoboken is as expensive as Manhattan. Right on the water with a beautifil view. Hoboken up and coming? Been "it" for years, just check the property values.
