This former A list “singer”/former reality star from a celebrity family has not been able to sell any of her reality show pitches and can’t get any acting work either.
It is not even so much what happened so long ago, it is the way she was on her last big show where she got fired.
No one wants to deal with that again even if she has changed.
Someone should hire her because she is pretty miserable.
Fired from: Melrose Place
Ashlee was ‘embarrassingly bad’ on ‘Melrose’
Looks like there’s one less “Melrose Place” mystery. Sure, fans are still scratching their heads about that whole “who killed Sydney Andrews?” thing, but at least those wondering why Ashlee Simpson-Wentz recently got the axe have their answer. According to on-set sources, the sometimes-singer-sometimes-actress was just plain awful as the show’s not-so-naïve Violet Foster.
“They hired her because they needed a good name to help create buzz,” one source revealed to Us Weekly. “But she was embarrassingly bad. Producers cut her down as much as possible.”
Allegedly producers finally realized that the only way to cope with Simpson-Wentz’s particular brand of bad acting was to cut her out of the show altogether. It’s a move that would have only come as a surprise to Simpson-Wentz herself, as another “Melrose” insider revealed the actress never realized she had a problem.
“She’s the worst actress, but nobody will tell her,” the insider said.
Of course, according to Simpson-Wentz’s biggest and ever-so-biased fan, the real problem isn’t the star.
“CW, catching up on (‘Melrose Place’). Who writes this crap?” Jessica Simpson posted to her Twitter account Monday. “I have had bad scripts to work with, but this? Thank God my sister is amazing and got you some press… Ashlee was too good for that show and was the ONLY reason I watched.” – Source
