Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz
Sources close to singer/actress Ashlee Simpson Wentz say that she is pregnant again, six months after the birth of her son Bronx Mowgli.
True or not, Simpson has been spending much of her time filming a new version of the 90s show Melrose Place for network CW. Simpson has been cast to play a naÃ¯ve-looking small town girl named Violet Foster who is trying to make it in Los Angeles. Seven years ago Simpson had a role on WB’s long-running drama 7th Heaven.
People.com recently interviewed the cast of the new Melrose Place, which includes: Thomas Calabro, Laura Leighton, Shaun Sipos, Michael Rady, Jessica Lucas, Stephanie Jacobsen, Collin Egglsefield, Katie Cassidy, and Simpson. Simpson described her character as “the new girl” who has just moved in and is shy at first. Later in the season she shows her more manipulative side.
Simpson purposely looked for a television job because of the steadier nature of the work will allow her more time to be close to little Bronx. Melrose Place films in Los Angeles, where she lives. She and husband Pete Wentz, of the band Fallout Boy, appeared in CSI:NY in March as a criminal couple involved in a bad drug deal.
