5 Marissa Cooper Moments That Will Make You Miss 'The OC'

Marissa Cooper was the real OG of The OC.

5 Marissa Cooper Moments That Will Make You Miss 'The OC'

Genuinely one of the best shows in history is 'The OC.' 'The OC' was filled with lots of drama, laughs, and tears as we watched the affluent teenagers of Newport Beach live their lavish lives.

Mischa Barton starred in the first three seasons as one of the main cast members, Marissa Cooper. Season four, she departed the series and any true fan of the show knows that season was the worst.

Marissa Cooper was the typical girl next door. She was beautiful, nice, popular, and of course, deeply troubled. However, even though Marissa made some questionable choices, she is still forever cemented as one of the most amazing characters on TV, at least in my world.

Back in its hay day, Mischa was the "it" girl. She was on tons of magazines, going to the best parties, and living her best life all because Marissa Cooper was so influential during that time.

1. When Marissa stole a bottle in the premiere episode.

Starting off the series in the most Marissa way she could, during the first episode she swiped a bottle of vodka from the bar at the charity fashion show. Obviously I do not condone stealing alcohol from a bar, but this made Marissa look like a badass to her friends.

2. Marissa and Ryan's NYE kiss. 

Also in the first season, Ryan and Marissa's kiss at Oliver's New Year's party. Marissa was so happy that Ryan showed up right as the clock struck midnight. This scene made everyone wish they had a Ryan Atwood, as if they didn't already.

3. When Marissa had her freak out.

Another scene that any true OC fan would remember. When Marissa screamed at her mom, freaked out, and threw her lounge chair in the pool. We stan her for finally expressing how she felt to her insane mother Julie Cooper-Nichol. However, maybe she doesn't have to throw what we know is expensive af furniture into the water.

4. When Marissa and Ryan went holiday shopping.

This was one of the purest and most wholesome scenes of the entire series. Marissa and Ryan shopped all around the mall for "Chrismukkah" (Christmas and Hannukah) presents. They went to all the department stores, had tons of cute montage scenes, but unfortunately, Marissa had to ruin it by getting caught shoplifting at the end. We still love her and I get why she wanted to get Ryan a nice watch!

5. The car accident in the finale. 

*Spoiler* When Marissa died in the season three finale, people were floored. This was the most heartbreaking, gut-wrenching, sad, terrible thing to see. After three seasons of rooting for her and thinking she was about to get out of California and better herself. Even after all these years, I will always hate Volchok for causing that car wreck.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
