HomeTVCSI: New YorkAshlee Simpson Wentz Moves Into Melrose Place! Regan Cellura March 9, 2009 12 Comments Wife of Pete Wentz, sister of Jessica Simpson and one-time supporting cast member of 7th Heaven; Ashlee Simpson-Wentz is joining the cast of the CW’s re-do of Melrose Place. People.com is reporting the latest development. The singer-actress, 24, plans to return to TV as a small-town girl who arrives in Los Angeles with a big secret, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The character she will play – seven years after her first big role on the WB’s 7th Heaven – is said to resemble the Southern-belle-turned-actress portrayed on the original Melrose by Amy Locane, says the trade paper. Simpson-Wentz and her hubby are also making a guest appearance on CSI:NY. Their episode is airing on March 18th. 12 Responses Darren Lomas March 9, 2009 Oh dear … and modelling her after Amy Locane’s big flop of a character, axed in Season One (if I remember correctly) I’m guessing Heather Locklear shouldn’t get her hopes up for this show… Log in to Reply elvara March 9, 2009 singer-actress….:D They’re joking right? She can’t sing and she can’t act. Why oh why is it that so many untalented people keep getting jobs? :~ Log in to Reply MichaelKnight March 9, 2009 First of all: Ewwww. Second of all: Yeah, let’s model the character after a FAILED character they cut after 1 season. Third: Back to the Ewwww comment. Did Heather Lockler do something so terrible to the producers after she signed the contract that they are punishing her like this? And what about Ashley being pregnant with that make up whore’s kid again? How are they going to write around that? Is that the secret: That she’s pregnant with a transvestite’s kid?

Log in to Reply petitejolie March 9, 2009 The original MP may not have had the best actors, but are there any Ashlee Simpson fans out there in any age group? Log in to Reply SusieQ March 9, 2009 Well, I guess this answers whether or not I should bother checking this train wreck out. Setting the casting scene with this – um, no thanks! Log in to Reply troymcclure March 9, 2009 Alright, I guess I won’t be watching the new Melrose Place then. Seriously, out of all the actresses out there, they pick her? What, they think she has a fanbase that will bring in viewers ? Or it it because she is so talented and beautiful? Please. Log in to Reply MichaelKnight March 9, 2009 Oh that’s right, I stand corrected, Nicole Ritchie is pregnant again, not Asswipe, I mean Ashlee. Log in to Reply blake3b March 9, 2009 Great, just kill my excitement over the new MP!!! Hopefully once they see her try to act they will cut her. I don’t know how she keeps getting work. Log in to Reply gush900 March 9, 2009 I was thinking with her red hair they were going with sydney andrews 2.o Log in to Reply BigDede March 10, 2009 She can’t be a Sidney, heck not even an bland model like Amy’s character. This show has gone to trash and it’s not even on tv yet. No Michael…no me. Log in to Reply petitejolie March 10, 2009 Maybe she can be the new Brooke. I’d tune to see her drown in the pool in the first episode. Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
