What Happens to a Hollywood Dream Deferred?

In somewhat lighter news, let's all can the schadenfreude surrounding the cancellation of Mischa Barton's horrible model soap, The Beautiful Life. But think of all the lost souls cast out into the streets, like actress Sara Paxton.

Ms. Paxton came to New York filled with hopes of making it big on a show we all knew was doomed to fail. Now she's totally screwed:

I spent two months and thousands of dollars without a paycheck moving to NY. And now they just say, 'oh, peace, you're done?' We all signed 6 month leases, and now we all have to figure out how to get out of our leases, and I have to figure out how to get all my furniture back. I don't know what to do with this NY furniture. We're kind of stranded.

And here the girls from The Hills are making mad bank for doing even less acting than required of Paxton. What is this economically shattered world coming to?
