AMAZING!!! Ashlee Simpson FIRED From Melrose Place!!!

| Filed under: TV NewsAshlee SimpsonHeather LocklearMelrose Place


You should never take delight in someone else's misfortune…

Except for right now!!!!

In a shocking turn of a events this afternoon, it was announced that Ashlee Simpson was FIRED from her gig on Melrose Place. (They are also letting go Colin Egglesfield, but we don't know who that is, nor do we care!)

The producers are leading us to believe that this was the plan from the start, but something tells us that isn't the case. Here's what producer Todd Slavkin had to say :

What was behind the decision to let Ashlee and Colin go?

TODD SLAVKIN: Well, we always knew that this murder mystery would end in episode 12. And we always knew that [Ashlee's] character of Violet would be instrumental in that as a suspect, and [Colin's character of] Augie as well. And once that murder mystery was solved, she would go on her way. That was the original plan going into the development of the show.

So it was always the plan for Ashlee to leave after episode 12?

SLAVKIN: Yes. Because we felt that once the murder mystery was resolved, the tone of the show was going to shift into a much more fun, romantic, sexy upbeat kind of show, and [her] character would move on.

Is it fair to say that if either of those characters clicked you would’ve found a way to keep them?

SLAVKIN: Well, you never know when you go along. But in the end, we felt like it was right [decision].

How did Ashlee and Colin take the news?

SLAVKIN: They’re total professionals and they took it like professionals. When you go into a show you never know what’s going to evolve and what the possibilities are. But because they knew ahead of time [that leaving was a possibility], it wasn’t a complete shock.

We think she was just too expensive to keep around and the producers would much rather filter funds in keeping Heather Locklear on the show than this whacktress!

And a swing and miss for Asslee! At least she got more airtime than Mushy.

What now, hun? Going to go back to that "singing" career of yours?

Or maybe it's time to just GIVE UP!

    Re: ap076 – ahahahahaha so true with an extra dash of the sugababes, the saturdays, and semi precious weapons if they were really bad . . .
    aka: perez's personal playlist (and teddy's everyday living hell.)

    im sure ashlee's ECSTATIC. . . lets see, a failing show on the wb or a successful music career and marriage to one of the world's most famous and successful record label owners (decaydence) . . .

    lets see: its obvious she chose the latter . . . good thinking ash!! :)

  4. 4

    Wow. sucks for them. But does anyone actually watch that show. I'm sure Ashlee can do better.

  5. 5

    Ashlee Simpson just got fired? YES! Now, I'll probably start watching the show.

  6. 6


  7. 7

    Colin Egglesfield is SO FUCKING HOT!! Why would they fire the hottest guy on the show. Asslee is terrible and deserves to be fired, but Colin is a mistake.

  8. 8

    i don't really understand why you hate ashlee and jessica simpson so much. it's not their fault their father is an insufferable pimp.

  9. 9

    I liked her on the show… good luck for them to stay on air.. she was the only one keeping the show going for me..

  10. 10

    Haha, she sucked anyways.

  11. 11

    WTF you hate Ahslee that bad? dude you need to grow up some. how old are you perez? It doesn't sound like she was fired to me but i won't burst your bubble.

  12. 12

    Me and a friend were just talking about how bad an actress Assless was on MP. I hope its a loooooooooooooooooong time before she tries to act again.

  13. 13

    well the show sucked, so does it matter if she is fired ?

  14. 14

    "…You should never take delight in someone else's misfortune…

    That's exactly how I feel about you Faily McFail

    Colin played Josh Madden, Erica Kane's (Susan Lucci) son, on All My Children for a couple of years. Ultimately, his character was killed off in order to donate his heart to Erica's daughter. He was shot by Erica's son-in-law after Colin's character stole millions from the son-in-law's business funds.

    1. For someone who fights so hard for H8 not to be spread…boy do you spread it. Only a pathetic loser would find glee in someone losing their job, at least as much as you do.
    2. Isnt your blog about celebrities? Just wondering…you’ve had a bunch of crap and outdated stories on here lately…maybe its time for you to go back to that ass pounding “career” of yours.

  17. 17

    Doesn't matter. The show will be cancelled soon anyway.

  18. 18

    HAHAHAHA! Yes!!!!!! This so rules!

  19. 19

    I feel like if you knew who Colin Egglesfield was, you might like him. He seems like your kind of guy.

    You are a bully, that's literally all this site has become. You being mean to people for no reason, you've targeted Ashlee for so long, grow the fuck up. Honestly, how old are you? Act your age and report on real celebrity news. The only time you aren't bullying is when you're talking about Lady Gaga or one of your trash "record label" artists. Your shit is getting so, so, so old.

  22. 22

    HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! why do I relish the fact that this spoon fed bitch is fired! That'll be ALL ASSLEY!!!!

  23. 23

    I thought Ashley was playing a great manipulative crazy character. But, how you fire colin is beyond me…he is the hottest guy on there!

  24. 24

    I can't wait for the day you get your ass kicked again Perez and you make another blog featuring you crying and playing victim.

  25. 25

    He was the cute one! Mistake.

  26. 26

    So your stance is that hate is wrong, especially against gays. Then you turn around and hate celebrities. You're just as much of a hate monger as the Klan Perez.

  27. 27

    aw sad. I really like ashlee simpson. ): But at least Katie Cassidy is still on. She's my fav.

  28. 28

    karma will get you perez!

  29. 29

    She is untalented and ugly.

  30. 30

    Re: ShelbyRayne – me too. i actually like ashlee simpson…..always have. I don't understand what Perez has against her that makes him hate her so much. i'm also glad that katie cassidy is still on the show i'm really starting to like her!! i also don't think she was FIRED ..if you actually read the article with the shows creater/producers it sounds like it was always the plan to have her exit the show…that doesn't imply her being fired..if she was actually FIRED like perez thinks it would have been more of a spontaneous decision.it doesn't sound like this was one of those times

  31. 31

    Wow that was really harsh. "Or maybe it's time to just GIVE UP!.." wtf. You totally sound like the fat girl in high school who's jealous of the popular cheerleader. so immature. Ashlee will be able to do something, she's cute, young, and has sweet personality. GEEEEEZ lay off.

  32. 32


  33. ap076 says – reply to this


    You certainly do hate on Ms. Ashlee. From the tone of the producer and reading between the lines I think all their days are numbered.

  34. 34


  35. 35

    ashlees character was one of the best ones on the show. & Augie brought the hotness. sucks.

  36. 36

    Big deal - melrose is going to last, what, maybe 5 more episodes. Ashlee - go home and parent your child.

  37. 37

    I tried to watch this mess and gave up. It's terrible and seems even campier than the original it you can believe it.

  38. 38

    "You should never take delight in someone else's misfortune…

    Except for right now!!!!"

    I thought the same thing when that dude punched you!!!

  39. 39

    oh well. it's not like the show is going to last anyways.

  40. 40

    yeah, i didnt like asslee simpson at all. she really cannot act.
    and auggie was the only character on the show i liked. i will not watch it after he is gone.

  41. 41

    ashlee simpson cant act worth shit so thank god, good riddance, but i really like augie wtf..

  42. 42

    She wasn't fired you fat fuck, she knew from the beginning that her role was temporary. You shouldn't be so sour Perez just cause she gets to do Pete Wentz and you never will.

  43. 43

    Perez, you're an ass! WHY would you tell someone to give up on what they love to do?! I used to like reading your blog, but now I think you've just turned into a stuck up asshole. The only reason real celebrities are nice to you is so that you won't write mean things about them on here! Quit judging everyone except yourself.

  44. 44

    i love this shooow but IM GLAD SHE's leaving cuz i didnt like her character and her acting.

  45. 45

    Re: GossipGay – Exactly! He is the ONLY hot guy on the show.

  46. 46


  47. 47

    Damn, Perezito. That was way harsh (even for you!). She's just trying to live her life!

  48. 48

    booo.. i get why ashlee is leaving because her story line has been pretty lame, but why they are getting rid of colin, i don't understand. really like his character. that's just weird. well i just hope the show stays on the air cause i'm really getting into it.

  49. 49

    so it doesnt matter no one watches that show anyways..they need to stop making remakes they always fail in the end

  50. 50

    I'll probably start watching it now.

  51. 51



  52. 52

    She wasn't fired d-bag. It was predetermined her character would leave after that episode.

  53. 53

    omg this is perfect..i'm going to start watching the show now

  54. 54

    Perez, you're disgusting. I've never seen someone so happy that another person is out of a job. You're sick and demented. The time will come when you're a has-been (not that you're a credible celebrity as it is).

    As for this decision, I'm disappointed. Not a huge fan of Ashlee but I did enjoy her character Violet and thought she did a decent job with it. I love Colin and this is what I'm most mad about. YOU NEVER EVEN GAVE HIS CHARACTER A CHANCE, you bastards! He's, by far, the best looking guy on the show. I'm excited about Heather coming aboard but the future direction for the show doesn't sound promising at all. You barely have anyone watching as it is and now you're pissing off the few people who ARE watching. Big mistake!

  55. 55

    They used her for buzz!

  56. 56

    I don't understand them firing the hottest guy on the show….and I don't get what your problem is with ashlee simpson? Your far more entertaining to read when you arn't such an asshole!

  57. 57

    Ok, I don't think AS is overly talented, but I liked her Bittersweet World album…*hides face in sweater*

  58. RPORC says – reply to this


    I'm not surprise that Ashlee was fired. I saw a glimpse of Ashlee's acting in Talk Soup and it was terrible. How she got the part in the first place was just unbelievable. This girl like her sister is not cut to be an actress. Did they have any formal training at all? Joel ridiculed her acting by copying how she would just act with her big eyes rolling! It was hysterical to the max!

  59. 59

    THANK GOODNESS SHE OFF!!!! she SUCKED!!! but i am really sad to see Colin go……..he was a HOTTIE!!

  60. 60

    Thanks God Ashlee is gone. She was horrible, and it was just painful to watch her attempt to act. (that horrible pout, what she did with her nostrils, and the way she looked into the camera, it was all sorts of wrong)

  61. 61

    Perez, I know that you are smarter than this. I understand how to hate her and yes, I agree that she is a terrible actress… but you it's a little pathetic that you CARE enough about her to hate her that much.

    Some of the shit that you say/type just makes you look SO ignorant sometimes. For once in your life, try to be classy.

  62. 62

    colin egglesfield is the hottest one - i likely wont be watching anymore .

  63. 63

    PEREZ! How could you not know who Colin Egglesfield is?!
    He is soooooo hott!!! he's gorgeous!
    Look him up Perez he's worth looking at!

  64. 64

    Perez, your an ASS. I was only remotely interested in watching that show because Ashlee was on it. What do you have against Ashlee, Perick!

  65. 65

    ugh! my dad was telling me about this a couple days ago. he works on melrose place in sound and she was wearing one of his microphones on her leg, and instead of taking it off when she went pee she just peed all over it and gave it back to him wet. he said she's a real pain to work with. gross huh?

  66. 66

    She's awful on that show. Her character ruins the entire storyline, anyway.

  67. 67


    A now single mother looses her job and you LAUGH behind her back and publicly to the entire WORLD?

    You DOUCHE!

  68. 68

    Be mean to people Perez.. U just go ahead and do that, but remember.. Karma's a bitch.. Didn't u learn that yet? What goes around, comes around..

  69. 69

    It's about time! I love the new show, but watching her "act" was painful. she's truly an awful actress. Seriously. Sucks they're taking Colin off too though, I liked the air of mystery he added, plus causing trouble.

  70. 70

    I'm still wondering why they hired that no-talent in the first place.

  71. 71

    LOL! Hate her, her sister, and that crazed Dad of theirs! Oh, when oh when will the Simpsons fade away and we never hear from them again?

  72. 72

    Re: insertsobriquet

    I doubt she can do better. She can't act or sing.

  73. 73

    She was fired because she was terrible. The producers and the CW did polls and audience members HATED Asshole Simpson. Thank God they listened and fired her. Now if she and her entire family would take the hint and disappear.

  74. 74

    They fired the HOTTEST guy on the show, and the only WELL KNOWN ACTRESS. Aaron Spelling must be turning over in his grave. Not the brightest producers in America!

  75. 75


  76. 76

    I AM PROBABLY NOT GOING TO WATCH THIS SHOW ANYMORE. I think Ashlee Simpson portrayed the character of psycho/stalker/wierdo pretty well. If we didnt' know who she was, it would probably be a different story. It seems that people tuned into the show to see her fail. I can understand why her character is being written out of the show because the character will become boring after a while. I don't think that Ashlee Simspon is to blame for this.
    As for Auggie, yes he is the hottest guy on the show. They should keep him.
    As for the rest of the characters… they're all BLAH… no one really stands out. I especially hate the character of the Asian girl who's aspiring to be a doctor but is a WHORE. It is demeaning to asian women.
    I didn't like the Indian girl in the beginning but she's growing on me.
    The blonde bitch/agent plays her character well although she's not that hot.

    Anyway.. I can't see this show lasting for another season. The show is becoming annoying actually.

  77. 77

    you should totally care who he is! He is the hottie of melrose place and a major stud muffin! you would think twice if you gave him a look

  78. 78

    I'm sure she was fired for acting like a diva or being hungover and not being focused at work. She obviously has a severe drinking problem like Jessica and they both need to be in rehab and AA.

  79. 79

    Don't watch it but I LOVE Colin Egglesfield….he's a really good actor…used to be on All My Children

  80. 80

    upbeat, sexy kind of show??? Have these people ever watched the original MP??? It was sick, psychotic, and sexy which is why we all loved it. Melrose was my favorite show of all time but this new Melrose is poorly written and the story lines are very thin and incomplete. They should've kept Sydney alive instead of a second death when they barely explained the first death. Made no sense to me. And then bringing Jane back as the new landlord but then she's never seen or heard from again??? Fire the writers, not the cast!!!

  81. 81

    This website use to be great. What bizarro world do you people live? I didn't think I would like simpson would suck, but was quite impressed!!! She plays a psycho fantastically!!!! Have any of you commenting actually watched the series?? I seriously thought she was the craziest character on the show!!! Go
    Ashley, I am one of those people that underestimated you!!!! Psycho!

  82. 82

    I actually watch the tv show and Ashlee's character was creepy anyway so I wont miss her, but all in all its an OKAY show.

  83. 83

    oh perez, at least she can sing at least she's happy you're just a terrible person talking shit abour others haven't you heard that this comments that you do actually hurt them FUCK OFF

  84. 84


  85. 85

    WHY do you want her to give up?? God if all the people gave up that you didn't like YOU would be out of a job. You know you are a shit writer why don't you give up to? I mean why try to improve just give up right??

  86. 86

    Fucking finally, her name alone gave the show zero credibility

  87. 87

    I'm happy about Ashlee but not Colin. I love him he is why i started to watch in the first place. now that he's gone who knows!!!

  88. 88

    Now can she be fired from Planet Earth?

  89. 89

    Oh NOW they get rid of her UGLY untalented annoying ass. Thats just great. The original Melrose Place used to be my favorite show but I just couldn't watch the new one because of Trashley Simpson. I just couldn't look at her ugly face and now I am pissed. I can't start watching the show now cuz I have no idea whats going on and its all that loser bitch's fault. I fucking hate her so much. She is such a dork and she thinks she is so cool which is even worse. Her and her dorky husband and fat sister all need to go away and stop trying to make comebacks all the time. You are nobodys

  90. 90

    just remember this is people's lives you are commenting on. she is obviously not doing well - look at the size of her. don't be the catalyst for something horrible.

  91. 91

    I think that's bullshit because Colin Egglesfield is a great actor and he's hott! And fuck you Perez for not caring who he is. I hope one day I can meet you so I can kick your ass. Yes that's a threat you worthless piece of shit. You don't like people who don't like you and I sure as hell don't like you.

  92. 92

    thank god! I accidentally caught a few minutes of an episode and she was AWFUL! the WORST actress I've ever seen I think! She is a no-talent, plastic faced waste. even though she can buy herself a brand new nose and cheeks and chin, that doesn't mean she'll ever actually be good at anything. I hate her husband too.

  93. 93

    i was happy but i like auggie!!

  94. 94

    I took delight when you got punched out, is that wrong?

  95. 95

    I LMFAO whenni read this omg i called my 2 best friends ( we all HATE her SO MUCH) and we went NUTS. woo hoo her ass is GONE the show will be SO MUCH BETTER withOUT her there

  96. 96

    Aw, man!!! Auggie is soooo hot!!!

  97. 97


  98. 98

    Why is everyone defending ashlee simpson? That bitch doesnt have to work a day in her life. Boooo hoooo she got fired. Why dont u cry about poor immigrants who are losing their jobs and homes not some fake ass wannabe whos already filthy rich. And I love Perez, he speaks the truth so stop hating.

  99. 99

    Karma is a bitch and everyone that is laughing at Ashlee's failure are gonna live that in the future
