The OC: Orange County's Red Hot Couples

The OC was the best show ever, and living without it is rougher than growing up in Chino. But if the void in your life without it sometimes feels bigger than Sandy Cohen's eyebrows - I'm here for you . . . get to the poolhouse and pack your wifebeaters - 'cause California, here we come!! It's Throwback Thursday.


OMG. This is going to be the best thing since Chrismukkah.

Let's start with Mischa Barton, who played Marissa Cooper. It seems like The OC's leading lady has been going through some rough times since the show - gaining weight, suing her mother, and trying to stay out of the limelight. But she's making a comeback on Dancing With The Stars and looks as good as ever! Perhaps she's been doing some . . . yogalates? So of course, our question here at CRI - who is she dating? The star seems to still be single.


But here's a blast from the past: did you know she dated Jamie Dornan? As in, Christian Grey? She did! Back in 2007 . . . and Josh Hartnett in 2008. Surely it won't be long before one of her Dancing With The Stars co-stars sweeps her off her feet.

Rachel Bilson, who played Summer Roberts, has been off the market since 2007. She and Hayden Christensen got engaged in 2008, broke up, and got back together again. They're still not married, but have a daughter together - Briar Rose. Is that the cutest name ever or what??

Adam Brody, who played Seth Cohen, has had the most picture perfect happily ever after. He married Leighton Meester (Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl), and let's face it... if you watched The OC, you probably watched Gossip Girl. And we couldn't have scripted a better match. They're a notoriousy private couple, but married in a secret ceremony two years ago, and have a baby girl together named Arlo Day Brody. They were so secretive about her that no one even found out Leighton had given birth until two months after the fact!
