As you’ve heard by now Ashlee Simpson was given the axe by execs at Melrose Place but rebounded quickly with a gig reprising the role of Roxie Hart in Chicago, but this time on Broadway. The starlet previously played the part in the West End back in 2006.
If you recall Jessica Simpson twittered Melrose Place was “crap” upon Ashlee getting kicked to the curb, a comment I don’t totally disagree with, though her motivation is suspect. This time around Jessica is twittering support for her younger sister and Ashlee’s new role writing, “I can’t wait to watch @ashsimpsonwentz on broadway in all her glory!!! I get chillbumps from toes to noggin thinking about it!! YAY!!!!”
It seems that all is going well on stage. Ashlee twittered “just finished second CHICAGO rehearsal. Man I love the theater and putting my dancing shoes back on!!”
On a side note- can anyone tell me what happened to Heather Locklear’s face? I, of course, tuned into her much anticipated return to Melrose Place and was frightened. Why is no one talking about the botox and lip injections gone wrong?!
