Ashlee Simpson Moves Out Of 'Melrose Place'

Ashlee Simpson Moves Out Of 'Melrose Place'

Ashlee Simpson and co-star Colin Egglesfield‘s story lines on Melrose Place will wrap up in an episode airing on January 2010.

EW‘s Michael Ausiello has an interview with exec producer Todd Slavkin explaining the reasons why.

On the decision to let Ashlee and Colin go: 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.

On how Ashlee and Colin took the news: 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.

New characters to be (re)introduced include Heather Locklear and Brooke Burns.

IF she was “good” and/or brought in ratings she wouldn’t be going anywhere……Trust me!.
This just proves Asslees downward spiral of a career……..
LOL! Looks like Daddys gonna have to get a “real job”…Uh-Oh!

I like Augie but I hate Violet! feel sorry for him

ha! im glad ashlee is going to be gone..such a bad actress!!! it was so annoying to watch her!!!….but dont take away the hot guy!!!! auggie is so cute.. bad choice cw!

Thank God Colin is gone. He was terrible, and his place is on daytime soap operas. Ashlee was horrible, too. This show now has hope.

glad Ashlee simpson is going to be gone, her character creeps me out.

@JJ: Daddy doesnt need a real job. He’s still making money off of Jessica.

I read Ugly Betty is heading for the chopping block sooner than later. How do we know? It’s being moved to a Friday night time slot (aka The Graveyard) in TV industry parlance.

What happens to Eric Delko(Adam Rodriguez) who just gave up his role in CSI:Miami to Eddie Cibrian?

ok this is the end i watched this show no more this is so stupid Ashlee was the star in this series like Mischa the star in o.c. was this is really.really stupid!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!hate Melrose Place

Ashley, such a bad actress. Go Melrose. More Cassy Kassidy !!!


ashlee wasn’t the star… she was creepy. if anyone is the star (and this is an ensemble cast meaning no one is the star) it would be katie cassidy.

@dundies: Completely agree!…but I love Vampire Diaries too even if it is cliche at’s better than Twlight…that’s for sure.

Ashlee just creeps me out every time I watch it

hes the hottest guy on the planet. PERIOD!


of course….they tried to do it “in a nice way”….

she was a lousy actress anyway!

okay the plot about colin’s character barely started, so why get him in the first place? and it’s already epsiode 7, if the murder thing will end this soon the show totally sucks. it doesn’t talk much about the murder so far.

Ashlee is a terrible actor. But Colin may be even worse. The guy is completely stiff. At least, Ashlee Simpson has sexy feet.

translation: girl got fired!
