MISCHA BARTON: CREDIT CHALLENGED?

A few days before she “got sick” and was hospitalized at Nicole Richie’s Memorial Day party, Mischa Barton shopped for HOURS on the co-op floor at Barneys in Beverly Hills. She examined every rack and tried on mountains of merchandise. Finally, after exhausting several salesclerks, she piled thousand of dollars worth of sportswear on the counter and pulled out her Mastercard. Minutes later, the embarrassed cashier had to break it to Mischa that her card was DENIED! (Everyone was puzzled because while AX cards are sometimes denied, it rarely happens with Mastercards.) Furious Mischa took to yelling angrily into her cellphone but couldn’t solve the problem. She had no choice but to leave the clothing “on hold” until she returned with another form of payment. So far she hasn’t shown up.
