No One on Melrose Place Likes Ashlee Simpson

by at . Comments

Ashlee Simpson is a terrible actress. In fact, even using the word actress in the same sentence as her name is kind of insulting to female thespians everywhere.

But in addition to her lack of talent, her bad behavior helped get her booted from the new CW remake of Melrose Place, a source close to the cast tells Fox411.

"Ashlee was kicked off Melrose Place because she was a total diva on set, late all the time, and deeply disliked by fellow cast members," the insider spilled.

"It created a lot of discord among the cast.

Of course, another major issue, the source reports, was that "she could barely act." That and producers' need to bring in past stars got Ash the ol' pink slip.

On-set diva Ashlee Simpson is headed for the unemployment line.

Melrose Place producers desperately pushed for Heather Locklear's return as Amanda, but couldn't afford the actress' salary demands without cutting someone.

Choosing who had to go was not hard.

"They basically trimmed the fat and made it possible for Heather to join the show," says the snitch. "Heather is a much bigger name than Ashlee Simpson."

With Ashlee and Colin Egglesfield (whoe unintentionally comedic flirting made them one of our favorite TV couples) exiting in January, and Melrose legend Jack Wagner also rumored to be coming on board, are more cuts still to come?

No word on that just yet, but if the scene last night where David cries at his mother's grave is any indication, Shaun Sipos' agent better start making calls.

Jack Wagner's concert dates are not posted on The Mohegan Sun's website, because they have not put any of the 2010 schedule up yet. Call The Mohegan Sun,and ask for the office that schedules the Wolf Den. They have the information, not vip service. He is scheduled for 2 nights, end of february.

That was my point,there are more than 3 or 4, actually more than 5,which is not what you first said, but that's fine, we can agree to disagree. It's not so important to me, that I'm willing to devote any more time to it.

Winnie, what are u talking. I am not back tracking. You are right there not 3 or 4. There are 5 ex MP cast member that when on to be successful after MP. Kristin Davis,Courtney Throne Smith, Marcia Cross,Doug Savant, and Kelly Rutherford. Heather locklear and Alyssa Milano was successful before MP.Rob Estes and Grant Show have not been successful after MP. That is what I am talking about. If you are talking MP casts being on Primetime shows be side MP than just about all cast of MP should be on that list including Jack. Just about all of the cast MP did primetime show, some was a success and some got cancel. That how I feel, so you say what you want. So leave it at that. We will agree to disagree.

Good, I'm not trying to fool anyone. You are not fooling anyone either rosie. Just because I disagree with you, does not mean I'm out to fool anyone, so you are incorrect.

Thanks Typical Girl and Winnie. Not sure why jenny7 continues to try and confuse the facts. My statement was correct,and hers was not. Alot of former MP actors have gone on to appear in other Primetime shows,and are much more successful than Jack Wagner. Seems obvious to everyone except her. Now she is going back trying to change what she actually meant. LOL

Jenny7, your comment was... "And three or four ex-Melrose cast members is not the majority of MP alumni being on successful Primetime shows"... was wrong. I provided a long list of Ex MP almuni who have gone to star in other Primetime shows. That is a fact. I stand by that. You are wrong. Now your back tracking trying to change what you meant. The fact is, like I said before, the majority of the ex MP cast have gone on to other primetime shows and are more successful than Jack. That is a fact! Nothing you say will change that. You can reply with nonsense all you like, but it changes nothing.
