Is Ashlee Simpson flirting with her very hot Melrose co-star?

Actress Ashlee Simpson is seen on the set of Melrose Place in Los Angeles, wearing a sexy dress.
This story is from Star Magazine, so it’s just for sh*ts and giggles. Chances are high they’re making this whole story up, but it’s still fun to speculate on.

Star is claiming that Ashlee is involved in an on-set flirtation with her Melrose co-star, Colin Egglesfield. If this is true, it closely mirrors the plot of Melrose, in which Ashlee’s character, the not-so-innocent newcomer Violet, falls for hunky nice guy chef Auggie, played by Egglesfield. I can see her being attracted to the guy. She’s got a whiny eyeliner-wearing husband away on tour and a baby at home and along comes a former male model to make things interesting at work. Much like the plot of Melrose, I can’t see Colin fallings for Ashlee though. I don’t know the guy beyond Melrose but he seems like he has more sense than to get involved with a married woman. We’ve heard for some time that Ashlee and Pete are having trouble in their marriage, so this could be true. Star kind of ruins it with a bogus story that Pete caught Ashlee googling the guy, though. I think they’re basing this whole story on some pictures of these two working on a scene.

Ashlee, 25, got touchy-feely with Colin between scenes on Sept. 23 – while husband Pete Wentz was on tour in Dallas with Fall out Boy. Dressed only in a loosely tied robe, Ash kept grabbing Colin’s hand and hugging him repeatedly, says an eyewitness. “They hung out together for hours. She giggled nonstop and did the whole hair-flip thing. If I were her husband, I wouldn’t be happy with the way she was acting!”

According to multiple sources, he’s not. Pete is very jealous of his wife’s obvious crush on the 36 year-old former Versace mode. He recently caught Ashlee online Googling Colin and flipped, says an insider. “She claimed it was just research, but Pete wasn’t buying it. They got into a huge fight over it and didn’t speak for days, and then he went on tour.”

I tend to think something is going on with Ashlee and Pete, but whether Ashlee is aggressively flirting with a co-worker on set is up to question. If she is, I wouldn’t blame her at all – the guy is hot! There’s a big difference between flirting and cheating, though. Star claimed last month that Ashlee suspected Pete of cheating on her while he was on tour. Maybe this is her payback, or maybe they made it all up. We’ll see.

As for the new Melrose – I’ve been watching it and it’s getting pretty good! Ashlee’s character is the weakest link by far and I don’t think she has enough acting ability to pull it off. She has three looks and they’re not that convincing: conniving, scared, and vacant. Now she’s emerging as the prime murder suspect (this doesn’t reveal any spoilers, and is just speculation on my part) but I think we’re going to be surprised by who actually offed Sydney.

    I just read the headline, w/o reading the post, and the first thing that popped into my head was “Is he over 5′ tall?”

    “weakest link by dar”

  2. Celebitchy says:

    @sigh I’ll fix that, thanks!

  3. mollyb says:

    I wouldn’t blame her. He’s way better looking than her skinny little make-up wearing douchey husband. Not that I think she’s any great prize herself. Also, hahaha. Auggie is the name of my mom’s turtle.

  4. Praise St. Angie! says:

    she looks (literally) like a mannequin in that pic where they’re just standing by the car.

    the pose, the look on her plastic face…creepy.

  5. nanster says:

    It’s amazing to me how two talentless sisters like the Simpsons got as far as they have!

  6. TwinkleToes says:

    Look at those inbred feet! Yowza. She is Ali Lohan, isn’t she?

  7. la chica says:

    better headline: is Daddy Simpson planting fake rumors to get people to watch his untalented daughter on her stupid show?

  8. Jenn says:

    Wow, la chica, for someone who’s a “psychologist”, you sure are going against the principles of psychologists by spreading negativity into this world. Melrose Place is a great show by the way, a common phenomenon of people who complain about shows? They don’t actually watch them.

    After being with Peter Wentz this long, I doubt she’d know what to do with a real man. The only way she got pregnant by him anyway was by talking in a deep voice while wearing stained boxers and Old Spice.

    Ashlee and Pete will be divorced before the end of next year. Those two don’t have the maturity or dedication to marriage or raising their child together.

  11. Jaclyn says:

    There is no way Violet killed Sydney (she’s just acting all freaked out because she wanted to get to know her mother). I think it’s a plot twist. I wish I knew who killed Sydney though!

  12. gossip_ho says:

    watched a few clips of melrose place…sadly, Ashlee is a really bad actress..what was the casting director thinking? the girl can’t act.

  13. Apres Ski says:

    She’s been fighting with Pete Wentz in public and at home. She’s been itching for an affair and now she’s found her excuse for one.

    However, Pete just got his hair cut off and now, these two guys could almost be brothers!! OUCH!

    of course she’s flirting; she’s married to an emo-munchkin who admitted drinking his own pee.
