We’re thinking all this is Joe Simpson’s idea, but Jessica Simpson is definitely doing her sister Ashlee a BIG favor. Jessica’s clothing and accessory franchises are incredibly successful – earning her fifty million dollars a year. Ashlee’s singing and acting careers are in the dumpster, she and husband Pete Wentz are separated, and she can’t catch a break. So Jessica is attempting to share the wealth by asking her younger sister to create a line of fashions for tweens. Whether the public will have the same enthusiasm for Ashlee’s name remains to be seen. But it IS a nice thing for Jessica to do.

    I hope it works for them but I Ashley seems like an awkward choice. She doesn’t seem openly friendly. She always looks like she is on the verge of starvation (and she maybe for all I know).

    Jessica’s line works because she has weight issues and women can relate to that. She is beautiful and appears quite friendly.

    Good for her, helping out her sister. They always did seem close. My question would be whether or not Ashlee’s name could be marketed to tweens, an age group that likely never heard of her.

    I am sure that this decision comes from Jessica’s parents nudging her to do the right thing by her baby sis. Not sure if it will be successful for them or not, time will tell. I do think Ashley has a more edgy fashion sense sense which may be what the “Tweens” are looking for.

    I’m sure Ash will figure something out. Tweens are stupid, they will buy anything.

    What a loser she must feel like compared to Jessica. She can’t act, sing or do anything without riding on Jessica’s coat tails. I guess going to college and getting her own career is beneath her. And to clarify, I do not think Jessica can act or sing either but she has found something that she is good at.

    Jessica is a huge success in making big big bucks, but she can’t seem to find a man she can trust or who is not out for her money. If she marries her latest loser, be sure pappy Joe will have them in the lawyer’s office for hours hammering out an iron-clad pre-nup. Ashlee just seems pitiful and don’t you know Joe and everyone else knew her marriage would not last.

    Walt, I have heard that Jessica is friendly as a puppy and will talk to any of her fans. She was on Rachael Ray cooking show and it just came thru that she was not stuck up; it seems like she was bonafide nice. I don’t think she is a good enough actress to be just pretending.

    I feel sad her marraige failed, but then when you’re young and you don’t spend a lot of time together, how can it succeed?

    As for these sisters, what about singing together, in harmony? I wonder if they’ve ever TRIED it? Frankly I can’t for the life of me recall what Ashlee sounds like, but her doing the jig on SNL is still branded into my mind. She totally KILLED any career at that very moment.

    Then I tuned into the show she was on that since was canceled, just to check out her “acting” and she was in a scene with another girl and I couldn’t BELIEVE how horrible she was in that scene.

    It reminded me of that show on MTV where they take a bunch of young women who want to be actresses and put them thru different scenes, dialog and scenarios. The girls pretty much stink to high heaven, and so did Ashlee.

    I really was shocked by how bad she was because she had been on that show for quite a while and it was known she was on it.
    I think now it was just a gimmick, using her name as a come-on to pull in young viewers, but then they realized she couldn’t ACT and eventually she got the big boot.

    THEN her marraige failed. Poor kid, can’t catch a break. But she DOES need to figure out what she’s good at and quit letting her psycho papa shove her into things she isn’t GOOD at.

    PS: Just to be mean, I’m suggesting she put out a perfume like her sister does. She can call it “Failure”!

    Indy, Thanks for the info on Ms. Jessica. I hope she can continue to have a successful business and find a man that will be good to her.


    I wonder if Ashley would actually do better if her father wasn’t her manager.

    Ashley should go out and get a real job, she has no talent, just forunate enough to be a apart of a clever marketing Father and talented sister.

    I can’t see her appeal, she is as warm as ice.

    Hey Muffy, E.A. games correctly predicted a Vancouver/Boston final at the beginning of this season. They also predicted Chicago as the cup winner for last year at the beginning of the 09 season.
    E.A.’s computers said seven for the final and a Van. win.
    More people are tuning in than the Olympic, Canadian/U.S. series.
    Even Miss Janet’s got her Canucks jersey on, picking fights with the biggest guy in the room, pounding Labatt’s Blue and screaming at her T.V.
    In a perfect world.

    It’s better than writing out a check., and Ashlee’s taste is depressing, dour faced stereo-typed cut yourself, have acid reflux, just emo-irritate, imitate, immature depression around everyone.. in an attempt for attention, and worry that they are heroin addicts with the goth makeup or pale skin and anorexia stick shape of the vampire or witch. Some tweens just like what ever is dark stuff, wear dreary make-up and are seasonably wrong, heavy clothes in summer, ghoulish, floating drapery in winter, with clunky boots all the time etc. They wear a lot of bracelets and arm warmers so they can pretend to be cutters. So Ashlee seems mentally unstable suitable, into the Cos-play fashion theme, costume play, so she knows what is prefered inthe tween crowd.

    Love him or hate him, this guy is a loudmouth who doesn’t hesitate to tell it like he sees it- but there’s one thing he NEVER talks about: his prostate problem. Long story short: he LEAKS! He likes to project an image of macho virility, but under his custom made suits are custom made “diapers.” He’s VERY self-conscious and has absorbent but undetectable “panty liners” sewn into all his underwear, to avoid wet spots. Thanks to his arrogant behavior, he has more than a few enemies and he’s terrified his secret will be exposed and he’ll be forever ridiculed!
