Check out this picture of Mischa Barton we found online today! Oh, waitâ€¦ is that Nicole Richie? It could be, right? We thought so, but it looks like we were wrong on both counts. This is actually a malnourished Ashlee Simpson, people. Talentless, annoying and now wasting away to nothing, Jessica's little sis could be described as a drain on the world's resourcesâ€¦ only she never eats.
The summer heat appears to be taking its toll on Ashlee Simpson and her fans. The disappointment of a slew of Ashlee advocates in Ohio will soon seem like nothing compared to the thousands of pissed of Marie Claire readers.
It all started two months ago, when Jessica's little sister gave an interview to the women's magazine, championing natural beauty and self-acceptance (while stifling laugther, we're sure).
"She's had it with Hollywood's twisted view of feminine beauty. Her goal: to get women to appreciate their diverse shapes and sizes," Marie Claire writer Dennis Hensley wrote, as he followed the pop star as she spent a day painting a pro-female mural with a group of underprivileged girls from Los Angeles's Green Dot Public School.
"Simpson is well aware of the barrage of negative body images that all girls see, and she's eager to counteract that negativity," Hensley stated, furthermore quoting Simpson as saying, "Everyone is made differently, and that's what makes us beautiful and unique. I want girls to look in the mirror and feel confident."
Or pay for plastic surgery to look better, one of the two.
Of course, by the time Simpson's interview hit newsstands, the cover girl was looking quite different, with long blonde hair extensions and an alleged (i.e. definite) nose job.
As result, Marie Claire's readers -and the magazine's new editor, Joanna Coles -are fuming over what they perceive to be blatant hypocrisy.
The best part? Coles has expanded the letters section in the September issue - featuring a true natural beauty, Maggie Gyllenhaal - to include the record amount of hate mail focused on Ashlee's actions.
Coles even adds her own comment: "We're dazed and confused - and disappointed - by [Simpson's] choice, too!"
Did Simpson actually go under the knife ... again and again? Does she deserve this retribution? Were you aware there were such things as chin jobs? Let us know!
On the plus side, reports MSN Entertainment, Ash has devoted fans who are somehow willing to fork over their hard-earned cash to see her perform.
However, they don't handle disappointment well. And they apparently have plenty of free time with which to express that fact.
About 100 ticked-off ticket-holders in Toledo, Ohio, upset that the hack "singer" canceled her concert in the city at the last minute, gathered outside her hotel on Tuesday and booed her lustily as she boarded her tour bus, accompanied by a police escort. Toledo has since moved up 12 notches on the Gossip coolness scale.
The made-over popster, whose ticket sales on this tour have reportedly been less than stellar (the Gossip cannot possibly imagine why that might be) cited illness for the cancellation of the show. How can that be, when she doesn't actually perform? Here's wishing whoever sings her songs while Ashlee mouths the words a speedy recovery. Does Braxton Olita have to care for that person as part of his boyfriend duties? How does that work?
We're already shown you pictures of Ashlee Simpson now ... and Ashlee Simpson then. See any obvious differences? Smell any, perhaps?
While Jessica's younger sister has denied having a nose job, the evidence is rather stark. Even if we're to take the sex slave of Braxton Olita at her word, however, what about that chin?
Take a look and decide for yourself:
Now that Ashlee Simpson has a smaller nose, she no longer needs a giant house.
Less than a year after settling into a $6 million mansion in Encino, CA, Simpson, 21, is putting it up for sale. Those with thousands of pairs of shoes or are part of the Suit of the Day Club should consider this estate? How come?
Because it has large closets. 1,300 square foot closets, to be exact. Wonder what sort of activities Ashlee and boy toy, Braxton Olita, have experienced in there ...
The home also has a pool with a view of "mountains on one side, the city on the other ... and you can see my parents' house," says Simpson.
Ashlee will be moving to a smaller beach house once the sale is complete. A new Victoria's Secret contract should provide her with ample cash for any down payment, don't worry.
Talentless plastic surgery fiend Ashlee Simpson has made it clear that is saving herself for her boyfriend, citing that as the reason she turned down a recent offer to pose naked for Playboy.
The magazine reportedly was willing to cough up $4 million for pictures of a nude Ashlee. Despite the staggering size of the offer, the lip-syncher says she was reluctant to share her body with tens of millions of eager male readers. In her world, that body is only for her boyfriend, Braxton Olita.
"My body is for me and my love interest, and that's the only person who gets to see it," Ashlee was quoted as saying.
Olita, who plays guitar in Ashlee's band, declined comment when asked if he has already been given the Lohan Special and/or other favors, or if he is still waiting to tap that ass. Just joking. No one asked that.
Ashlee Simpson has undergone quite the makeover.
In the past two years, she's gone from a semi-cute singer with relatively little talent to a tricked-out, lip-synching, wannabe skank with no redeeming value whatsoever. Defend her all you like, but the case is clear. Without the singing chops or box office appeal of older sister Jessica, Ashlee is attempting to stay in the public eye the only way she can -- by changing her appearance every five minutes and generally whoring it out.
The Gossip has already documented the Ashlee Simpson plastic surgery debacle, which she either forgot happened (not impossible given the intelligence level of the Simpson clan) or had the audacity to deny in a recent interview. Now we've taken it a step further with a trio of then-and-now comparisons. The results are stunning:
EXHIBIT A: Ashlee Simpson earlier this year (left) vs. Ashlee circa 2004 (right). Sadly for Ash, you can't have talent surgically implanted.
EXHIBIT B: Ashlee in 2006 once again, vs. her innocent, unaltered 2004 version. Is she trying to become Britney Spears? Give it up!
EXHIBIT C: Ah, how times change. Look at the tramp seen with Jessica just a few months ago, compared to the cute lil' sis showing her brother-in-law, Nick Lachey, some affection in '05. Is that even the same person?
THE VERDICT: Ashlee, you are a disgrace. You are worthless, a waste of valuable oxygen. Please cease all "music" projects and disappear from public view. Sincerely, The Gossip.
Having just nixed a $4M offer down a deal to pose nude for Playboy, we here at the Gossip were a tad surprised to hear that Ashlee Simpson will be the next face (and body) of lingerie giant Victoria's Secret.
At 21, Ashlee is perfect for the company, or so it believes, as it aims to better promote its "Pink" underwear line, aimed at a younger audience.
According to the New York Daily News, the talentless lip-syncher beat out someone who can actually sing -- American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson was a finalist for the campaign -- to represent the line of younger, "cuter" Victoria's Secret lingerie.
Personally, I would have opted for Clarkson, but good for Ash. Evidently, a little bad plastic surgery and having a hot sister can get you a lot of things in life. So it goes.
In other Ashlee news, sources say she's selling her Encino, Calif., home to move in with boyfriend Braxton Olita, who plays (or pretends to play) the guitar in her concerts.
Maybe he'll get to see her in the "Pink." Eh? Eh?
The AOL music section is kind enough to interview a slew of celebrities. First, there was Katharine McPhee. Now, we'r proud to bring you an interview with Ashlee Simpson via Instant Messenger.
MelissaInMusic: hey ashlee -- thanks for taking the time to talk to aolmusic.com today! where are you right now as you AIM with us?

MelissaInMusic: You made aolmusic.com's "21 Under 21" list, but now you're out of the running for next year!
ashleesimpsoniam: haha! Well at least I made it when I was under 21!!!
MelissaInMusic: so you recently proved that you can indeed sing on SNL! what it was like getting ready to step out onto that stage again?
ashleesimpsoniam: I was really excited, but of course, really nervous. I was mostly excited to come back and face my demons. Everyone was so supportive! It was really great!
MelissaInMusic: did you have any crazy moments behind the scenes with the cast?
ashleesimpsoniam: Not really...I was mostly goofing off with the crowd making light of the situation! Jon Heder was a lot of fun though!!
Looks like Jessica Simpson isn't the only person who thinks her sister has a hot body. Rob Shuter, Ashlee's publicist, has confirmed that the diva was approached about posing for Playboy ... in the nude!
The price of this offer? A whopping $4 million! On tour, promoting her latest album, "I Am Me," Ashlee reportedly turned down the offer.
Good thing. It's hard to believe Papa Joe Simpson would approve of his youngest daughter shedding it all in public. It would've been quite the opposite career angle as taken by Jessica and her virginity.
