I know I'm probably in the minority here but I agree with you. Her star rose very fast which put her over her head in many ways. Sudden fame, new generation paparazzi, being the family breadwinner. Momager situations rarely end well. Someone barely out of high school with an $80,000 mortgage?
I like Jason a lot but I feel he handled that situation poorly. Given his own life experience where you're young, famous and everyone's giving you everything on a platter you float for a while on entitlement then your cloud crashes back to reality, he could've shown more empathy and not made it a public spectacle. He didn't have the internet, paparazzi or bloggers to deal with during his DUI, halfway house time, own misadventures. Again, I like the guy but it came off wrong as if he was doing it to get attention for himself.
Mischa does or did have talent. I haven't seen her in much playing an adult so I don't know if it's still there or kind of a Lohan situation where she's aged out of the parts she was great at. But I think after losing all her money this show might be one of the only ways she's equipped to support herself. The world is different now, she can't go work at a coffee shop like Punky Brewster did or a yarn place like Ricki Lake, TMZ would be all over it. Where's Oprah? She should give Mischa the opportunity she gave Lindsay.
