One has a career in the crapper and is divorced, the other is a new mom, is married, and has a much more promising future as an actor…

Ashlee Simpson will be joining Melrose Place. The new Melrose Place. Ugh. There are so many great writers with so many great show pitches, NEW show pitches, and they insist on resurrecting the past. Why?

Anyway, Ashlee will play a “small-town girl who arrives in Los Angeles with a big secret (like) the Southern-belle-turned-actress portrayed on the original Melrose by Amy Locane”. At least it won’t go straight to dvd.

Here are Ashlee and her husband Pete with baby Bronx in London the other day. Fall Out Boy is performing a series of shows in the UK.

We need to talk about the Louis Vuitton backpack. It’s wrong to begin with. But it’s even wronger on a dude.
