Ashlee Simpson hits the Unemployment line!


The end of 2009 has been a tough one for the Simpson sisters. With Jessica now on the singles market, happily mothered and married younger sister Ashlee has hit a career bump: the CW recently announced they would be killing her character off the show.

According to executive producer Todd Slavkin, Simpson was always set to leave after the twelfth episode. "We felt that once the murder mystery was resolved, the tone of the show was going to shift into a much more fun, romantic, sexy upbeat kind of show, and [her] character would move on," he told Entertainment Weekly. Colin Egglesfield will also be let go.

While the move may have been in the cards awhile ago, a source tells that Simpson just wasn't appealing to the audience. “Ashlee wasn’t popular with viewers. The CW wants the show to do well so they listened to the audience and the audience didn’t really like her or the character, so they made the decision to get rid of her for the sake of the show,” the source said.

*Funny as hell and Daisy approved!*

Daisy thumbs up
