From Melrose Place, all the way to the Great White Way! Ashlee Simpson made her Broadway debut last night playing Roxie in Chicago on Broadway.
She’ll remain a part of the production for 10 weeks, through February 7, 2010. Ashlee’s entire fam turned out to see her perform including hubby Pete Wentz and sister Jessica Simpson.
After the performance, Jess took to her Twitter to praise her little sis, saying, “Roxie was all Heart!” Jessica Tweeted. “Watching her up on that grandiose stage made me the proudest sister in the world. I love ya honey, I love ya!. Grrrrrrr.”
And it seems everyone is doing well right now, despite some setbacks earlier in the year. Joe Simpson talked to Us Weekly, and said, "I'm proud because my children look at ups and downs and rise up above it all and remain strong. They are who they are, and that couldn't make me prouder as a dad to see them be strong. Right now, Jessica is in her element. We finished a great TV show that you'll be seeing in March, and I think you'll love it."
As for any eligible suitors looking to date his oldest daughter? Joe says, "You could never ask for a more loving woman and honest woman. That's all you got."
We hope 2010 is the year Jessica finally settles down with a good guy!
