It is bad enough in my opinion when parents try and sell photos of their baby to try and profit off the photos, but to actually go out and try and sell photos to every tabloid and news magazine in the world makes it so much worse. According to the NY Post, Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson (read Joe Simpson) have been calling every possible outlet and no one wants to buy photos of their baby. No one? Wow. You would think some magazine would give them $20,000 or something just for giggles. I'm guessing though that they wouldn't really consider $20,000 an offer. Joe probably thinks the photos are worth $1M or something ridiculous like that.
The reason none of the magazines want the photos is that Ashlee and Pete don't sell well on covers. Sucks to be them huh? Do you really need more money? Do you really need to exploit your kid just so Joe can get a new car for the holidays? I'm not really for selling photos of your kids at all, but I can see the argument made by Brad and Angelina when they give it all to charity. At least they are helping thousands and thousands of other kids with their donation.
What are Pete and Ashlee going to do with the money? Instead of buying regular baby blankets, they will get the baby Chanel blankets? It's ridiculous. I'm sure that either their price will go down or they will just give the photos to People and get an exclusive interview inside or something about how being parents has brought them closer together and strengthened their love.
