Aubrey O'Day, Emmy Rossum, Melrose Place star Ashlee Simpson-Wentz and her husband Pete are among the celebrities starring in the second PSA for the NOH8 Campaign, entitled "I'm Coming Out," to raise awareness about Propostion 8.

As Carrie Prejean rolls over in her grave, these celebs speak out against what they see as an injustice, that not everyone is allowed to marry who they wish.

It's a nicely put-together video. While he does not appear in the NOH8 PSA, we know Brad Pitt would approve of this effort to promote marriage equality ...

Ashlee Simpson-Wentz is taking her unique blend of acting talent, charisma and good looks to Melrose Place this fall. If only she had any of the above.

Not to give any Melrose Place spoilers away here, but she is not good. We have seen the pilot. Nevertheless, she sat down with People recently to talk about her offbeat character on the CW’s revival of the primetime soap.

“She is a little weird,” Ashlee said. “I have a so-called innocent side, but I think it’s just the persona that I’m giving to people. I’m only setting people up.”

Describing her character, Simpson-Wentz says that, “Her name is Violet and she’s new to Melrose Place, new to L.A., looking for a family member - looking for any kind of family, looking for love. She’s really not accepted - not just yet."

"I think that’s something interesting, to play the outsider.”

Some of Violet’s downfalls? "Obsessing over things and people,” says the 24-year-old, even-less-talented sister of Jessica Simpson. “Anyone that’s willing to be like, ‘I’ll help you out,’ she ends up finding an obsession with them.”

Unlike Ashlee Simpson-Wentz, who has a strong bond with her own family in real life, the character is “desperate for family, desperate for love, to connect.”

“She looks up to Ella, who’s played by Katie Cassidy, because she’s got it together from the outside. She’s like ‘How am I ever going to fit in this town?’”

Simpson says she’s glad to be part of the series’ tradition of shocking plot twists - but won’t give up an specifics ... yet. “There’s a lot of jaw-droppers on the show that we obviously can’t give away but it does get crazy.”

Although she was too young to catch the original Melrose Place, the lip-syncher hopes to “bring the old audience back and also start a new one, one that's for our generation because we just missed the boat on Melrose Place.”

Ashlee Simpson (or Ashlee Simpson-Wentz, as she prefers to be called) is hard at work at her new gig on the CW’s upcoming remake of Melrose Place.

If you thought this was silly and that she probably can't act, you were so right. The network just posted a new promo (with Britney Spears' "Circus" serving as the soundtrack) for the show, which premieres Tuesday, September 8.

The show with the tagline "No apartment building has ever been so complex," stars the mother of Bronx Mowgli as Violet Foster, a small-town girl trying her luck in L.A., with her “disarming naiveté [that] masks a calculating, shrewd sex kitten within.”

Yeah. Okay. See if you can forget that it's Ashlee Simpson you're watching below and take her even a little bit seriously. What's next, a Jessica cameo?

Sunday was family day for Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz.

The two took son Bronx Mowgli, whom they welcomed last November, to the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation's "A Time For Heroes" celebrity carnival.

As Pete helped locals customize T-shirts, the new Melrose Place star stood by his side, making faces and smiling at Bronx, whom she held in her arms.

He sure is a little cutie ...

Ashlee, Pete and Bronx

Rumors that Pete Wentz got Ashlee Simpson pregnant a second time appear unfounded, which is probably for the best. The two have their hands full with one bundle of joy - and made a T-shirt especially for Bronx at the charity event.

Pete - who celebrated his 30th birthday Saturday in Las Vegas - also was on daddy duty at the event, holding Bronx as Ashlee chatted with some fans.

Ashlee began cracking up when a young girl approached her for an autograph and Bronx tried grabbing the girl’s book. Ah, to be a cute young mom.

Ashlee Simpson is married to Pete Wentz and she's the mother of his child, but the no-talent hack is still insecure when it comes to his former flames.

Out-of-control Ash loudly trash-talked Gossip Girl star Michelle Trachtenberg Monday night at the "DJ Hero" party at LA's Wiltern Theatre, reports say.

The trouble started when Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson were seated near Trachtenberg, who dated Wentz before the Fall Out Boy bassist met Ash.

"The evening started off very civilly," reports the New York Post. "Pete and Ashlee had a pleasant conversation with Michelle and her boyfriend for close to 20 minutes, even showing [Trachtenberg] some baby pictures of [their baby] Bronx."

But then Ashlee Simpson started drinking and all hell broke loose.

An increasingly loud Simpson began to give Wentz a lap dance while staring directly at Michelle and hurling insults at her: "She was grinding up on Pete like a stripper. It was actually pretty disgusting," a witness said.

Things reached a climax when Simpson, who just landed a role in the CW's remake of Melrose Place, screamed at a confused Michelle Trachtenberg, "I hope you know, the whole time you were dating Pete, I was [bleep]ing him!"

Classy.

Jessica's younger sis had to be restrained at the event, where Jay-Z and Eminem performed. Ashlee Simpson was eventually dragged away by bystanders.

Who would you root for in a fight?

It's a fashion face-off of CW stars ... kind of.

Kristen Bell narrates, but is never seen on Gossip Girl, while Ashlee Simpson has joined the cast of the new Melrose Place. In any case, both have joined the ranks of trendy celebrity style with their latest fashion statements!

The actress, who also stars on Heroes, paired her 3.1 Phillip Lim tank top with khakis for an A/X party in L.A., while the alleged singer and sister of Jessica Simpson wore her tribal printed top for a day of family fun in Manhattan.

Who looked better? Tell us below!

It has been reported that Pete Wentz got Ashlee Simpson pregnant, and that she's banking on her second bundle of joy to salvage a deteriorating relationship.

We have no idea if that's true or not, but one thing is undeniably clear - the alleged singer's first spawn, Bronx Mowgli, has a ridiculous name cute little face!

Check out this adorable mother-son photo below ...

Ashlee Simpson, who's branching out in her "career" by taking on a role in the CW's new remake of Melrose Place, seems to be a natural in the role of mom.

As long as she doesn't try to emulate Jessica Simpson fashion. Then the kid will be scarred for life - although we'd have some great photos for our site.

It was an afternoon of young, talented beauty at this week's CW upfront presentations.

Each spring, networks invite advertisers to an event that serves as the official launching party for its fall schedule. This is where deals are made and new shows are announced.

For The CW, a channel that aims to attract a less mature audience, it was the perfect time to showcase its array of up-and-coming stars.

Or Ashlee Simpson, who somehow has a role on the remade Melrose Place. Here's a shot of Mrs. Pete Wentz at the upfront ceremony:

Upfront and Center

Due to the success of Gossip Girl and 90210, The CW is more interested than ever in focusing on teenage soap operas.

Aside from the aforementioned remake of Melrose Place, look for The Beautiful Life on the network's fall schedule. It stars Mischa Barton and Corbin Bleu.

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.

Pete n' Ash

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!

One is a talentless actress that has somehow landed a role on this fall's Melrose Place remake.

The other is a useless reality star only famous because she spends lots of money on material items.

Britney Spears, Plaid Shirt

In other words, Ashlee Simpson and Bethenny Frankel have a similar impact on both society and the celebrity gossip world. They also have similar tastes in fashion.

Mrs. Pete Wenz attended an April party in New York City in the following Phillip Lim dress, while the Real Housewives of New York City star celebrated a Modern Bride event this past week in the same black ruffle-trimmed outfit.

Who looks better in it?
