I Just Watched The 'Melrose Place' Pilot...

Pete Wentz and wife Ashlee Simpson take their 7-month-old son, Bronx Mowgli, to a vintage car show at Travis Barker‘s shop ‘Famous Stars and Straps’ in Los Angeles on Saturday (June 20).

Over the weekend, I watched the pilot of CW’s new Melrose Place. In Ashlee‘s opening scene, she screams like a banshee after finding a dead body floating in the pool of her apartment complex. Unfortunately, the rest of her time in the episode is not very memorable.

Producers squeezed in a lot of scenes into the pilot, so things seemed a bit choppy. The most enjoyable character to watch was Michael Rady, who plays cute and quirky aspiring filmmaker Jonah Miller. He makes his living as a videographer of weddings and bar mitzvahs for the rich and famous after moving to Los Angeles with his fiancee Riley Richmond (Jessica Lucas).

Melrose Place will air on Tuesdays @ 9PM ET/PT after 90210. Check out the preview below!

    Umm looks like Sydney sleeps with Michaels son I wonder if his mom is Jane ? which would make him her nephew, thats just plain wrong and gross

  • Tands

    Jared, did you like Michael Rady the best because you think he’s cute??? I thought his acting was terrible in the pilot (I too have seen the whole thing). The only characters worth watching were Sydney and Michael.

  • HockeyGurL

    Never mind my comment I googled Melrose Place and read what happen with Michael and Jane.

  • Liv

    They tried to age Katie Cassidy too much. It didn’t work.

  • http://Thedressisadorable YES!

    That guy who played Jonah is the most interesting. He’s got charisma and seems like a nice guy and not another Hollywood clone that is all about hair colors and makeup.

    I don’t knwo if I’ll watch, since the rest seems kinda blah, but I might tune in to watch him.

  • amy

    looks boring and Ashley Simpson can’t act!

    hey it’s max from greek

  • LolaSvelt

    Haha, this girl’s a joke. Her music career failed so she turned to low rent TV to financially secure herself.

  • khesh

    i believe Travis Barkers company is “Famous Stars and Straps” not “Stainless Stars and Straps”….

    @khesh: Thank you!

  • LoveLeeR

    @Just Jared: you actually read the comments ! that´s cool :D

  • Not impressed by JA

    How do they bring life back to Sidney ? She died in the first Melrose Place !

  • Lily

    Lola why exactly does that make her a joke? Please everyone of us would take opportunities like this, specially if nearly as well paid!

  • http://protectthewildthings.blogspot.com Karen

    I have nooooooo idea what just went on in that preview. It was uninteresting anyway.
    And Michael Rady!! The guy from Traveling Pants! Aw I loved him in that movie. Melrose Place probably isn’t going to do very good things for his career except get him on tv :(

  • Me!

    Can’t wait for baby Bronx to sprout Ashlee’s old nose!! Wouldn’t that be poectic justice:-)

    Did we really think she would be “memorable”? It will be her body soon floating in that pool.

  • Mat

    OMG that baby has a huge head. You can tell she desperately need this Melrose thing to be a hit lol because she don’t have nothing else left but reality shows.

  • Bella’s mommy

    I don’t mind Ashlee, but I don’t think acting is her thing. Maybe she should have stayed with ballet. Supposedly she was pretty good at that.

  • samm

    wow, that actually looks pretty good

  • http://zeitgeist.the-world-in-focus.com/ Victoria

    Cool looking family :-)

  • nata

    She is a horrible actor, she honestly should retired for good.

  • stephanie w

    Her idea of acting is to open her eyes really wide, evidently. Wow.

  • ptm

    In a couple of months Bronx will be taller than Pete. yikes.

  • Zoz

    Not good acting for simpson.

  • http://athleticsinglesdating.com melissa

    Wow, i can’t wait it seems awesome. Is andrew shue coming back?

  • me

    Why do so many men walk ahead of their women instead of with them? It’s so rude!

  • CHRISTINE

    ACTUALLY, THE BABY’S HEAD IS NORMAL SIZE, NOT THAT BIG.
    IT’S ASHLEE & PETE’S HEADS THAT ARE SMALL….
    I’M SERIOUS.
    I’VE SEEN THESE TWO UP CLOSE IN STUDIO CITY, CA. THEY WERE PRACTICALLY BREATHING DOWN MY SHOULDER AT A STORE AND I STILL DIDN’T NOTICE THEM.
    WHY?
    BECAUSE THEY R THE TWO SHORTEST, SKINNIEST ADULTS I’VE SEEN.
    ASHLEE LOOKED LIKE SHE WAS 100 LBS AND PETE LOOKED LIKE HE WAS ONLY 90LBS.
    AND HE DID NOT LOOK GOOD IN THOSE TIGHT GIRLY FRENCH JEANS.

  • Saphira

    @CHRISTINE:
    Amen to the comment on those awful skinny pants! You’d think that he’d wear something even slightly less ridiculous now that he’s a dad, but nooo!

  • pop86

    Acting is not her thing.

  • GiGi

    .
    **YaWn**
    The Show looks stupid (very stupid) and boring.
    And the fact that “Daddy’s little princess” Asslee is in it does not help matters…
    I smell another BOMB!!

  • Russ

    NOSE JOB OR NOT , THAT UGLY GIRL LOOKS LIKE A WITCH.

  • W.

    Ashlee Simpson is a Douche Bag.

  • Doll

    Is she wearing a Harajuku Lovers shirt?
    It’s cute but she is ugly

  • Louise

    Anyone else think Ashlee Simpson acts as well as a vacant mannequin?

  • anan

    Wow! Could night time television get any more trashier?? what the hell is going on with our idea of entertainment and morals? Let’s just throw those out the window. This show looks horrible!
