Whenever I wonder whether an actor is talented or a movie or television show is any good, there is one place I look first. A person who knows everything there is to know about what is good and bad in acting. Jessica Simpson. Somehow, she of Blonde Ambition and Major Movie Star has decided she knows what is good and bad on television and who is good and bad on television. Not surprisingly, before Ashlee Simpson was fired Jessica couldn't get enough of Melrose Place and told everyone to watch it. Since Ashlee was fired, Jessica thinks the show is crap and that Ashlee was the best thing on the show.
"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."
Perhaps there is a new meaning for the word amazing with which I am not familiar. Something in the Urban Dictionary which shows that amazing can also be another word for utter crap. Jessica is sticking up for her sister and I admire that. Hopefully she doesn't really think she is a judge for acting talent or whether something is good. I think she said Major Movie Star was brilliant.
What all of this does show is that The Melrose Place producers did lie and continue to lie. If Ashlee knew she wasn't going to be on the show after a certain number of episodes, I am guessing that Jessica wouldn't have been as pissed. I think Ashlee deserved to be fired but it obviously came as a shock to her and to her family.
