There seems to be a consensus amongst the tabloids that Pete Wentz and Ashlee's divorce was a long time coming. Everyone also seems to agree that Ashlee's partying probably had a lot to do with it. Here is where I may shock some people. I don't necessarily disagree with Ashlee's partying. So, she went out with friends a lot at night? If Pete is on the road with his band or doing some work, is Ashlee supposed to stay at home every night looking out the window and pining for her man while she stays home and plays the dutiful mother and wife while Pete is out having fun?
The problem I have is Pimpa. According to Pop Eater, Pimpa Joe is happy to have Ashlee back at home under his roof and has done nothing to encourage the couple to reconcile. He is probably hoping Ashlee can find some guy he can manage and make some bucks off. Pimpa is not at quite the level that Thora Birch's dad is, but he is a very controlling guy and I think he hates the fact that he has not been able to control the boyfriends or husbands like he controls the daughters. I think he might actually like Jessica's new boyfriend because the guy has no independence and will be a yes man to Pimpa. He is someone who could be placed under the Pimpa thumb, and Pete and Nick and Tony and John Mayer are just not those kinds of guys.
