Ashlee Simpson & Pete Wentz starring in new Newlyweds?

Joe Simpson seems absolutely intent on wrecking as much of his daughters’ lives as he possibly can. Truly, if he sat down with a marker, paper, and poster board and drew out some type of chart titled, “Ways to Interfere with/Mess Up Offspring & Impede All Forms of Happiness,” he could not have done a better job. Which is why I’m pretty sure he’s planned this all out. Because any quasi-sane, loving parent would have stepped off by now and said, “You know what? Whatever I touch, I ruin. Maybe I should stop touching things.” And I mean that exactly how it sounds, Joe Simpson. Perv.

Anyway, Joe has decided he wasn’t satisfied just ruining daughter Jessica’s life with his domineering, interfering ways while filming the Newlyweds with now ex-husband Nick Lachey. There’s a reason Nick’s an ex, and it rhymes with and looks just like Papa Joe. Simpson has decided (seemingly without involving his daughter in the decision) that Ashley and new fiancé Pete Wentz are going to do their own Newlyweds show. Because why wreck just one marriage when you can wreck two?

Get yourself ready for the return of MTV’s Newlyweds — with a twist! Instead of Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey, it’s Simpson version 2.0 is coming your way, with Jessica’s little sister, Ashlee Simpson, 23, and fiancé, Pete Wentz, 28, set to appear as the couple in the hit MTV format — at least if Joe Simpson gets his way!

Never one to miss a money-making opportunity, Ashlee’s dad and manager Joe seems determined to turn this idea into a reality. “He knows that no one cared about Jessica before her reality show, and he’s hoping a show for Ashlee will have the same effect,” a source close to the singer tells OK!.

With a wedding on the horizon, a baby on the way and a famous rocker fiancé, Ashlee’s life has all the ingredients for a reality show. (Ashlee and Pete’s publicist tells OK! they are not set to appear in Newlyweds.) If the program comes off, let’s hope the Bittersweet World singer’s love story doesn’t end the same way as her sister’s failed marriage.

Touché, OK. Touché. Never did I think I could wholeheartedly agree with anything that came from the printing press of OK Magazine, but they’re pretty much right on the ball on this one. The Simpson girls clearly don’t have the spine to stand up to their father. I was hoping one of their spouses would have, but if I were a betting woman, I would have gone with Nick Lachey long before I could imagine Pete Wentz standing up to Papa Joe. And I think he’s a little too busy sharpening his eyeliner pencil to be bothered. The sad thing is, I’d probably watch this show, if only to yell at Joe Simpson.

Here’s Pete and Ashley at the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner at the Washington Hilton on April 26th. Images thanks to WENN.

  3. Bodhi says:

    Yeah, that sounds like a GREAT idea!

  4. Sol says:

    Well everybody knows how that will end,just ask sister Jessica,Carmen Electra and that Travis Baker.

  5. Bellatrix says:

    How did Pete Wentz manage to find too short trousers being his height (see picture above)?
    It is a mystery.

    My answer would be child department.

  6. Syko says:

    According to IMDB, Ashlee is 5’6 1/2″ and Pete is 5’7″. Since any measurement a man gives you can be reduced by at least 2″ to get the right number, he’s actually 5’5″. And since women dating small men usually shave a little off their height in order to not seem so tall, she’s actually 5’8″. Add in 3″ heels, and she towers over him.

  7. AC says:

    why were all these B listers and D listers (heidi montog etc) at the white house dinner thing?

  8. abbizmal says:

    Those pants might not be too short. Looks like he has them hiked up like an old geezer. He looks shorter than me. Heehee. He probably has the hiked up like that to appear that he is tall.
    Celebitchy, that was said perfectly. Surely they are not stupid enough to go along with this.

  9. journey says:

  10. neelyo says:

    who cares about the Simpsons? If we all stop watching them they will go away….I mean really who cares? The next thing you know there will be a show about the mom and dad didn’t she already have her own show….We should boycott MTV they really will put ANYTHING on the air.

    I don´t think Joe´s lil girls would even want to stand up to their father!
    I think they really love that kind of attention and I think if Jessica could, she would do it all over again!
    I bet 10 bucks she will be all jealous of her lil sis and all…lmao
    especially if Ashely´s is REALLY pregnant (i am confused here, is she?)
    But honestly I think they will SOOOO DO IT! What does this ppl have to loose?
    After all the main thing Ashley and Pete have in common is that both had just like 1 hit single…lmao

    It’s always amazing to me the amount of shit fake online personalities can throw around – but in this case you’ve managed to awe me in that instead of your shit being flung at deserving target hanger-on Papa Joe, you choose semi successful daughter and super successful Fall Out Boy founder. Get your “shit” in order, morons.

  14. Because I say So says:

    they are both disgusting to me. I hate MTV and all it spawns with a passion 👿
