Following her empty performances on 7th Heaven and most recent cameo on CSI: New York with husband Pete Wentz, Ashlee Simpson has decided to put her music career on hold and become an actress once again. This time in CW’s reboot of Melrose Place.

She’s slated to play Violet, “a character whose disarming naiveté masks the calculating, shrewd sex kitten within.” In other words, nothing at all like her real persona. Ashlee will have a tough time pulling this off. Her idea of being a sex kitten is meowing at the camera for 45 minutes.
