Ashlee Simpson's Return to Reality TV
Of course, Joe Simpson, Ashlee’s dad and manager, is behind all of this.
“Joe knows that no one cared about [Jessica Simpson] before her reality show, and he’s hoping a show for Ashlee will have the same effect,” a source says.
One record-industry insider adds, “She’s been struggling with record sales. Now that she’s really interesting again, a reality show could do wonders for her career. It’s a part of doing business for this family.”
Could this help take Ashlee‘s career back to the top? The first season of The Ashlee Simpson Show ran in the summer of 2004, and her first album, Autobiography, dropped a month into the show’s run and debuted at No. 1.
