If she acts half as well as she sings ... this show is gonna eat royal ass!
The zenith of uselessness up until now, Ashlee Simpson is ready to test her acting chops as a cast member in the upcoming remake of Melrose Place on the CW.
Just kidding ... mostly. When your foremost TV moment was being booed after she couldn't even lip-synch effectively on SNL, there's nowhere to go but up.
In all seriousness, the show looks pretty good. Here is your first look at the cast of the new Melrose Place, scheduled to debut this fall on The CW network ...
MELROSE PLACE RELOADED: (left to right) Stephanie Jacobsen, Colin Egglesfield, Ashlee Simpson, Shaun Sipos, Katie Cassidy, Michael Rady, and Jessica Lucas.
We're going to assume, based on this photo and the general unreliability of the tabloid that reported it, that Pete Wentz did not get Ashlee Simpson pregnant again.
Then again, no word on when this was taken. There's also a chance it's photoshopped, and that Ashlee will be filmed neck-up all season, a la Kelly Rutherford.
We just hope Ash's character, Violet, will get a lot of really bad plastic surgery at some point in the first season. Then she won't even have to worry about trying to act!
