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.


Winnie, before you call someone out read my message again. The people was wrong because even with people you listed, that is not most of the ex Melrose cast. Most of the ex MP cast was doing guest star role on other show or not working. Plus, Kristin Davis,Courtney Throne Smith, Marcia Cross,Doug Savant, and Kelly Rutherford did do more and big primetime show after MP. But Heather locklear and Alyssa Milano was all ready successful before MP. And Rob Estes joining 90210, I would hardly called a successful show. They was talking about how bad the rating is. And Grant Show just join a new primetime but time will tell if the show will be a success.


I agree Hobbes. Thank god this is not Jack Wagner's unofficial website, or the moderator would have our comments removed. As for Jenny7, not sure what math you are using,but the list of actors from MP who have gone on to other Primetime shows does no stop at 3 or 4. Here are some that come to mind. Kirstin Davis, Grant Show, Courtney Thorne Smith,Marcia Cross, Rob Estes, Doug Savant, Alyssa Milano, Kely Rutherford, Heather Locklear, to name a few. So the next time you want to tell people they are wrong, you might want to make sure your facts are not wrong first!
I like Jack Wagner and would love to see him on anything other than Bold and Beautiful, but I am not blind to the facts


Look at all the opportunities Jack has had to break out of the soap scene....he has tried and failed, as have many....not ot mention his singing career, the one-hit wonder, flash from the past, singing career didn't just hit a is like the Melrose curse...nobody was abel to overcome it....they are drooling at the chance to be on prime time, is sad....


You people with these bizzare defend-him-at-all-costs love affairs with Jack Wagner sound like cult members. Seek counseling.


Sorry jenny7, but you are wrong. Through the years,I've heard the rumors also. More than three or four ex cast members have moved on to primetime shows, or at the very least have been asked to appear on the new MP. I happen to like Jack Wagner, and hope his career takes a turn for the best. He seems like a nice guy. However it is intersting that he is still stuck on soap operas,and up till now, there has been zero talk of MP wanting him on the show. That speaks for itself.


Sorry Friscofanforever but you are wrong. I have read and saw interview of ex-Melrose cast members saying there are friendly with Jack. And three or four ex-Melrose cast members is not the majority of MP alumni being on successful Primetime shows. Most of the former MP cast was not working, that why the are coming back to MP 2.0.


Sorry Rosie,
I agree with Buzz. Your examples do not prove anything. Other than MP and Titans, Jack Wagner has been stuck in Daytime TV, while the majority of his MP alumni have gone on to successful Primetime shows. He may be asked to appear on MP, but only after they have tried everything and everyone else out. Other than Heather Locklear, there is not proof of him being friendly or keeping in touch with any of his past co-stars. He has a bad reputation, I'm sorry if you can't accept that.


Such a bad rep that his part-time contract was extended, Aaron Spelling gave him another lead role after Melrose Place, and he's still friendly with his co-stars, including Heather Locklear. Please. Buzz, I'm sorry you didn't get Bricky, and I'm sorry a Jack Wagner fan hurt your feelings, but that has nothing to do with Jack.


wow, that's harsh. She doesn't have the greatest self-esteem to begin with. I think she was lucky to get the role in the first place. She was much cooler before she had her nose job.


I honestly doubt there are very many people in the world that actually like her. The only thing she's got going for her is her looks. She can't sing or act.
