Former prime-time soap star Mischa Barton (The O.C.) competed on Season 22 of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars. With her professional dance partner Artem Chigvintsev, they placed 11th out of 12. (Model and deaf activist Nyle DiMarco and his pro partner Peta Murgatroyd won.) Now more than a year later, Barton is competing on another TV competition, Battle of the Network Stars.
Barton, 31, is joining Beverly Hills, 90210 stars Ian Ziering and Gabrielle Carteris and Knots Landing star Donna Mills on the Prime-time Soap Stars team. When not in front of a camera, Barton is getting behind one with business partner Jenn Schwartz, her co-founder of Millennials, a TV, film, and online production company. Battle of the Network Stars airs Thursdays at 8pm on ABC.
