Ashlee Simpson is in talks to return to the musical Chicago on Broadway, sources tell JustJared.com.

The 25-year-old actress moved back to New York City earlier this week. “She plans on being here for three months,” a source reveals. “She’s hoping to return to the stage.” (Ashlee played the femme fatale Roxie Hart in Chicago at London’s West End in 2006.)

Ashlee recently moved out of Melrose Place after producers wrapped up her storyline.

No because she suck

NY is no London

who cares?

Totally agree with Marissa above. She should really stop setting herself up for disappointments. This is her family’s fault for not being honest with her and making her think she is a great singer and actress which couldn’t be further from the truth.

# 4

I love ashlee!!

# 5

Does this talentless idiot think someone’s going to pay over $100 to see her perform live?? Her and Papa Joe need to stop smoking that crack!

# 6

But… she can’t sing (see lip-synching debacle on SNL) or act (see getting fired from Melrose Place)… can she dance?

# 7

What the hell did we do to deserve this no-talent invading our city again?
Ugh…there goes the real estate values :(

# 8

Can she even sing?

Funny how people constantly criticize Ashlee because of ONE incident in which she was caught lip-syncing, yet people still pay top money to go see Britney Spears even though she lip-syncs ALL THE TIME.

That poster actually calls her “America’s sweetheart”?!? Um, no. ROFLMAO.

I have a feeling we will see her with the rest of the unemployed at Starbucks.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!

You KNOW your career is over when……..

Thatsnotmyname @ 11/06/2009 at 5:48 pm

WHO?

America’s sweetheart ??? Did her daddy make them put that on the poster??
omg! She is sooo sad and lame! poor her.

thats a big……N A Y !

That picture is horrible! She looks like she’s 40 years old!
homegirl needs to lay off the plastic surgery !!

Stop with this hate people!

lessasslee please!!!

In The Know @ 11/06/2009 at 7:28 pm

Why don’t they just stop kicking this dead horse……she has no talent.
I seriously doubt any viable Broadway producer will cast this non-talent.

she looks like she would be kinky in the sack

Her husband said he gives it to her in the azzz.

Love Ashley, can’t wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey well at least she’s trying to continue on with her career. Good for Ash I say.

Dear Ashley,

Get out of my city.

Thanks.

She can do it all. She needs her own TV sitcom. Great actress!

christine (WeHo) @ 11/06/2009 at 11:05 pm

She looks good here.
God, her & her family r hustlers aren’t they. ..

christine (WeHo) @ 11/06/2009 at 11:11 pm

@nyny:
Dear Ashley,

Get out of my city.

Thanks.
===================

people are just commenting to her no talent…..

like it or not,

everyone.wants.my.lucky.charms @ 11/06/2009 at 11:52 pm

I think this is really an awesome picture of her. LOVE IT. She looks really hot here.

Down with the simpsons @ 11/07/2009 at 12:36 am

America’s sweetheart? LMAO! Give it up Ashlee! Her PR team will do anything to keep her in the press. Melrose Place gave her the boot. How low can you go?

@Gaga:

yaya, gaga, she can sing.

When is this girl going to get it?
Ashlee sweetie, you’ve NEVER had a number 1 single after… what is it three albums? You’re last song “Little Miss Obsessive” made it to number 96 in the charts in America. Just GIVE UP SINGING. You cannot sing,..

then don’t even get me started on the so called “acting.”
YOU CANNOT ACT GET IT THROUGH YOUR HEAD. YOU JUST GOT FIRED FROM A LAME ATTEMPT AT A REMAKE OF MELROSE PLACE…
YOU SUCK.

Go and work at McDonalds or something because you’re not talented.

melissa asherman @ 11/07/2009 at 4:38 am

I’d see that!

She can’t act ! Have you watched her on Melrose Place?
She is horrible

I’ve got a stage that she’s more than welcome to gat on ant time she wants!

Am I the only one who thinks she looks a bit like Angelina on this photo…?
When I saw the photo I thought it was Angelina…. it looks very little like Ashlee… Probably there was a bit too much Photoshop intervention

Some people are just pathetic. Don’t you see that she was planning all this for 3 months? it’s hard to think that maybe she left Melrose Place and not that she was fired? SERIOUSLY. You guys are not really smart. And that’s the difference btw ashlee and you she will be always in the top spot because she knows how to handle with her failures. Anyway if she did great in London and once in NYC she can do it again.

wow, looks like she’s gonna ruin a musical
what else is on her list of ruining?
she’s ruined music, acting, i guess she’s just trying show what a complete failure she is

Why doesn’t she just give us all a break by herself a break.

Its not a good idea. She is not an actress, nor a singer. Her music career is on the drain, and she is the worst actress I had ever seen. She should stick to being a mother.

Definitely Nay and another thing those of us in Chicago need to DEMAND Chicago Talent on our Chicago Stages. I am tired of not seeing Chicago Talent. We have talent right her in Chicago!

If you want to move here and perform great, but why can’t we expect to see our great city with Chicago Talent.

I don’t know why people are so insistent she’ll fail on Broadway. She did the role on the West-End to RAVE reviews and London is a way harder audience to impress than America. She is a trained dancer and has a decent voice. I believe she’ll do well on Broadway.

She cant ACT! Why cant they see that! Why would I want to waste money on her?

she looks like has 16 years old on the show Melrose Place
YAY I thing she is a great actress

Is it me or does she look like Jessica Alba in that poster?

Eww, no way. She can’t sing!

Ashley has a good voice and she can dance! She will do really good! Unlike Jessica – Ashley had to work for everything – couldn’t live off her looks.

NAY

it’s not really how it should be, but sadly Roxie is one of those parts where you can get away with casting a desperate talentless hack with grandiose dreams of stardom – hence why they’ve been doing it for years

anonymous @ 11/08/2009 at 1:37 am

She’s a Simpson family member. What do you expect?

She sucks as an actress and I think one of the worst hence melrose with her creepy looks, but is a little better with singing.

@Filbert: She is talented! Have you ever listened to her songs? Well, I really didn’t think so. If you had listened to them, you would never have said what you’ve said. Many people out there love her and her music and think she’s amazing. She had an incredible success when she played Roxie Hart in 2006. She was simply stunning!
LIKE IT OR NOT.
So show some respect for this at least.
There are many ways to express your own opinion.
