Rachel Bilson laughs off the rumor that she called her former "The O.C." co-stars to shun Mischa Barton, seven years after the series ended. Her representative slammed the report from RadarOnline.com that Bilson is holding grudge against Barton for ruining their careers with her past antics.
According to the website's so-called source, Bilson "is the one who basically made it be known that it's okay for everybody to wash their hands of Mischa and not forgive her past transgressions. It's really sad because [Mischa's] literally trying to set up dinners to make amends and Rachel is telling everybody to 'ignore her and she'll go away'."
Bilson's rep responded in a statement to Huffington Post, "The Radar Online 'story' is a complete fabrication. There simply is no truth to it at all. No one from Radar Online checked in with Rachel or us for validity or comments. Rachel has no ill will toward Mischa - she has and will continue to wish her well."
Bilson is now starring in the third season of "Hart of Dixie" while Barton is building her career back after suffering a breakdown in 2009. Barton has been cast in the TV pilot "The Gutsy Frog".
