Just added an episode still from the fifth episode of The Beautiful Life. You’ll recognize the photo already since several of the shots of Mischa in this dress were used in the episode itself.
Ashley Madekwe has claimed that Mischa Barton is “really professional on set”. The Secret Diary actress, who starred alongside Barton in the now-dead CW series The Beautiful Life, said that she did not understand recent reports which suggested the former O.C. star was a ‘nightmare’ to work with.
“Working with Mischa was awesome! I really like her – she’s a really sweet girl and she’s really professional on set,” Madekwe exclusively told Digital Spy.
“We had loads of fun because we played bitchy rivals, so it was always fun saying catty lines to each other.” She added: “I didn’t hear any reports that she’d been acting up. She definitely wasn’t – she was there on time every day and working hard like everybody else.” Discussing the axed series, she said that it was “a great idea” but suggested that “it wasn’t executed as well as it could have been”.
Madekwe currently stars in Secret Diary of a Call Girl, which airs Mondays at 10pm on Showtime in the US and Thursdays at 10pm on ITV2 in the UK.
I finally had a minute to create the episode clips from episodes 3, 4 and 5 of The Beautiful Life. I had to extract the video file from YT and then convert it into a different file type so I’m not sure if the clips will play smoothly for everybody. I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

Just a month after posting unaired episodes of TBL: The Beautiful Life on YouTube, Ashton Kutcher has surpassed his goal.
CNN reports that executive producer of the series had a half a million (view) goal that he set for the episodes on series when he made the executive decision to put it online.
Ashton shared in a vid message posted earlier, “If we put this thing on the Web more than half a million people will watch it on the Web. I want this to be the first show ever that gets more viewers on the Web than it did on terrestrial television.”
Starlet Sara Paxton shared, “It’s pretty exciting for our friends and family to be able to watch the episodes that never aired. After it was cancelled, a lot of fans were reaching out on Facebook and Twitter and asking where they could see the rest of the episodes. Now that it lives on the Internet, who knows what it will turn into. I don’t know what to expect out of it.”
The five episodes combined have been viewed about 2.7 million times in the three weeks they have been available online in their entirety. With that said, Karey Burke (Ashton’s business partner) revealed that they’re considering continuing to keep the show alive.
Karey shared, “Now that the airing of the episodes on YouTube has been as successful as it has been, there are conversations about continuing with the show in some form or fashion. We haven’t had any discussions with the CW about bringing the show back, but anything is possible. There certainly could be a short form version of the show that could live on the Web if our studio partners were interested in that and enough of the cast were interested.
Screencaptures from TBL’s third episode ‘The Beautiful Lie’ have been uploaded. I’ll upload caps from episodes 4 and 5 as soon as I can.
Episode 4: The Beautiful Triangle
Episode 5: The Beautiful Campaign
Full episodes of The Beautiful Life have been uploaded to YouTube via Ashton Kutcher’s company Katalyst Films. The event is sponsored by HP. So far 3 episodes have been uploaded to the account, the third being a completely brand new and unseen episode.
