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?

The last time we heard from Ashlee Simpson, she was partying hard, getting her drink on and having some lesbian flings. Somewhere between then and now, she apparently met boyfriend Evan Ross and fell in love because now they’re engaged to be married. Woohoo! Evan is Diana Ross’ son, and they apparently “went public” with their relationship over the summer, though she’s so far off the A list at this point, it’s no wonder we never heard about it.
In any case, both Ashlee and Evan announced their happy news on Twitter, as you do:
I literally have never had less to say about a couple in my life than I do about these two. They look a hot mess, but love is love and here’s hoping it works out for them!

Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz split up ages ago, but they do have a kid together who they named after a borough of New York and a character from The Jungle Book, which explains why Pete isn’t so happy that Ashlee’s been going wild in recent months, partying hard and even engaging in lesbian flings (ooh la la)! Basically, he’s told her to calm the hell down and start acting more like a mother and less like a carefree 18-year-old with an experimental side.
From Radar Online:
“Ashlee is in the dog house right now with Pete,” a source tells Radar. “He’s concerned that she’s burning the candle at both ends and worried about the effect on Bronx if she continues in this current state.
“Pete’s told Ashlee that enough is enough, and she has to cut back on the partying. He’s even spoken to [her mom] Tina to get her take on the matter and make sure that he’s not overreacting in any way. She reassured him that he isn’t and said she’s been worried about Ashlee too.”
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Ashlee displayed some “out of control” behavior at a Hollywood hotspot recently.
“She was downing drinks like there was no tomorrow,” according to an eyewitness, who exclusively told Star magazine the star was throwing back cocktails at Pink Taco.
“She asked for a straight shot and added it to her already mixed cocktail,” the source added.
I have to say, if it was Pete Wentz out drinking and making out, no one would raise an eyebrow, but because women are held to some ridiculous standards and are called crazy, wild sluts if they don’t adhere to them, this is a story. It really chaps my hide. Do I think she probably needs to settle it down and pay more attention to her responsibilities? Yes, of course. But do I think that being a mother means you’re nothing but a mother and not still a woman and, you know, a person who might want to let off a little steam and chill the hell out without your kid attached to you 24/7? Duh.
