LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Following Ashlee Simpson-Wentz’s eviction from “Melrose Place,” the CW show has lost at least one viewer – her sister Jessica Simpson.
“CW catching up on MP.who writes this crap?i have had bad scripts to work with,but this?thank God my sister is amazing and got you some press,” Jessica wrote on her Twitter page on Sunday night.
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com in late October, The CW announced Ashlee and co-star Colin Egglesfield would be dismissed from the “Melrose” cast in January following the end of the “Who Killed Sydney?” storyline.
While the move may have come as a surprise to fans, executive producer Todd Slavkin previously told Entertainment Weekly it was in the cards all along.
“Once that murder mystery was solved, [Ashlee’s character] would go on her way,” he said. “That was the original plan going into the development of the show.”
When one of her Twitter followers Tweeted “ashlee was too good for that show and was the ONLY reason I watched,and won’t anymore,” Jessica suggested they stick around just a bit longer.
“Watch til Jan..:)” she replied.
