Well, the rumors were true about the show Creator asking Mischa Barton to join the cast of 'Gossip Girl'.

She TURNED them down!......Ouch!......Here is the full article:
Some hot gossip: Mischa Barton won’t be joining the cast of CW’s Gossip Girl.
TV Guide reported that Barton, 22, had been approached to play Georgina Sparks, an old friend of reformed party girl Serena van der Woodsen (Blake Lively).
But her rep tells Usmagazine.com, “She will not be on the show. She was approached, but her reps passed.”
Barton is now in Paris attending Fashion Week and promoting her upcoming drama Closing the Ring.
The actress — who was charged with DUI and marijuana possession this past week from a December arrest — last appeared on the Fox hit The O.C. Her character was killed off in 2006.
Despite rumors that she was ready to leave, she told Newsweek it was the producers’ decision to write her off the show.
"But I really think it's best to do movies now," she said at the time.
