Why Ashlee Simpson was kicked off Melrose Place

Ashlee Simpson courtesy of the CWWhen Ashlee Simpson-Wentz was fired from Melrose Place last month, the show’s executive producer Todd Slavkin said: “It was the original plan going into the development of the show. We felt that once the murder mystery, which involved their characters, was resolved, the tone of the show was going to shift … and Ashlee’s character would move on. “But a source has since told Fox News: “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. It created a lot of discord among the cast.” Another source told Us Weekly: “They hired her because they needed a good name to help create buzz. But she was embarrassingly bad. Producers cut her down as much as possible. She’s the worst actress, but nobody will tell her.”

    All these reports about why she is going, how are we supposed to know which one is the right one. Who cares, I for one like her charachter on the show, and will be upset to see her go so soon.

    no doubt these reliable “sources” were fellow female actors on same show…meow

    ive never really been into melrose for some reason. it seems strange that every time someone gets fired off a show they blame it on them being a “diva” or “hard to work with” or “constantly late”. these actresses wouldnt even BE actresses if they didnt come on time or were hard to work with or a diva because no one would want to hire them EVER.

    Since the correction for the “deviated septum”…she is hotter than her sister 🙂 Same talent base thought…

    Deep breath here….I too, was a big fan of the original Melrose Place. I have only watched a couple episodes of the new one but, she seemed alright. She never did get much screen time though.

    Umm…I’ve seen her acting. To say she sucks is putting it mildly. She was horrible on 7th Heaven and only slightly less horrible on MP. If her fame were based on talent instead of her sister and her dad pimping her out, she would be the no name next door. I think she is a much better singer than actress. She is definitely a lot prettier since her nose job though.

    I was surprisingly impressed with her acting skills on the knew Melrose. I have watched every episode and thought she was doing a really good job at being the devilish girl! I am sad to see her go.

    ….She’s a bitch and I’m pretty sure that she is in fact, retarded

  13. Chris • November 5, 2009 @ 9:26 PM

    and why is it she sucks at everything she does?…..

  14. 4thjet • November 6, 2009 @ 5:23 PM

    I only saw a few episodes and compared to some of the other actors I thought she was holding her own but did have a limited set of acting skills.
    I’m inclined to believe the diva bit though as she was one of the only “names” on the new show of the new actors.

  15. Thibz • November 7, 2009 @ 10:56 AM

    Well i must say that perhaps acting is where she should be because she certainly could not sing at all…Saturday night live…..cough

  16. tributegirl • November 7, 2009 @ 5:29 PM

  17. Thibz • November 7, 2009 @ 6:10 PM
