Singer, reality star, and world’s worst lip-syncher Ashlee began studying ballet at the age of three, attending New York’s School of American Ballet at eleven. When Ashlee’s blonde bombshell big sis Jessica won a record deal, Ashlee moved to LA, working as one of her backing dancers.
Her profile raised through appearances on her magnificently dumb sister’s hit reality show Newlyweds, and through her own reality show, The Ashlee Simpson Show, in 2004, she released her first album. Autobiography, along with her follow up album, 2005’s I Am Me, debuted at number 1 in the US with her debut album going triple-platinum.
Ashlee’s fame inadvertently soared after she was involved in the most cringeworthy lip-synching screw-up of all time on Saturday Night Live. Youtube clips of the incident went viral.
An aspiring actress, she became a regular character in the family drama series 7th Heaven from 2002 to 2004, starred in the hit West End musical Chicago in 2006, and in 2009 got her big TV break playing Violet Rose in the revamped Melrose Place. She was cut from the series after 13 episodes.
Ashlee famously married Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz in May 2008, giving birth to their son Bronx Mowgli six months later, divorcing Pete in February 2011. Ashlee’s fame seems to be on the wane but she’s launching her own fashion line for tweens in 2011.
