Ashlee Simpson and fiancé Evan Ross made good on their engagement plans last weekend by marrying in a lavish ceremony… that no big news publication wants to pay for pictures of, apparently. You see, the Simpson family is famous for hawking pictures of major life events – they’ve counted on it for income for over a decade. The problem is, no one’s buying Ashlee’s shit.
From the New York Daily News:
“The Simpsons have a long history of selling pictures to magazines,” an insider tells Confidenti@l. “When Jessica was at the peak of her success with Nick Lachey, her dad made an exclusive several-part deal with OK! magazine. Just a few months ago, Jessica sold her most recent wedding pictures to People for $300,000. But now it seems no one cares about Ashlee anymore.”
“The only outlet that had expressed any real interest is People,” another insider said. “But they made it clear that a picture of the two sisters together would be better than a picture of Ashlee alone or with her groom. And (People) will not guarantee a cover.”
An hour after Confidenti@l contacted Simpson’s rep Janet Ringwood for comment, wedding photos were suddenly, and not exclusively, released for sale to any magazines or papers that were interested — in the late afternoon on Labor Day!
Well, that sucks. But seriously, can you name one thing Ashlee Simpson has done in the past 5 years BESIDES get married? I sure can’t – so why the hell is anyone acting like she’s still a celebrity?
