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.

Is Jack Wagner really coming back? If that is true, they are doing great job keeping it a secret. I've heard he has a bad rep in the industry and they want nothing to do with him.
However I have heard some good news. I heard from a very reliable source that Jack Wagner will be in concert in Late Feb 2010, at the Mohegan Sun Resort & Casino, not July as in previous years. Exact date has not been finalized, but it looks like it will most likely be the last weekend in Feb. Call Mohegan Sun for details.

Every day there is a new twist....seems like a lot of anti-Ashley assholes are depserate to put her in a negative light, that they cannot stick to the fact that it was the moolah....Stop being haters, already...The show sucks, they are trying to make it what it once was (which was shitty, which is why it was cancelled in the first place...REMEMBER)....the writers simply suck!! Has been former show stars(ie. Heather Locklear, Josie Bisset, everyone from that original cast)havent' worked since...for a reason...
