Having exhausted seemingly every possible permutation of the "party that ends in a fight where someone takes a dramatic tumble into the pool" formula, TVGasm reports a rumor about how The O.C.'s writers will attempt to inject some life into the show's second season: [SPOILER ALERT] by embroiling Mischa Barton's character in some hot lesbian action. It all makes perfect sense; a little girl-on-girl is a time-honored way to grab some attention. Better to give Barton the standard bi-curious storyline than to undertake the far more difficult task of tastefully depicting the "we're fighing/we're fighting/now we're fucking" moment that finally would've broken the sexual tension between Coop and her patio furniture.
