Ashlee Simpson to Appear in Nicole Richie Sitcom

Didn't Nicole Richie get the memo? Ashlee Simpson doesn't exactly bring in good ratings.

Word on the block is that Ashlee, who was fired from the CW's Melrose Place, was casted in Nicole Richie's new sitcom as a supporting character.

“Nicole adores Ashlee, and she truly believes in her talent,” says a Richie informant, who spilled the dish in the Dec. 21 issue of The National Enquirer.

“With few other job prospects on the horizon, Ashlee — who desperately wants to establish herself as an actress — was feeling down until Nicole stepped up and promised: ‘I’ve got your back. What are girlfriends for?’”

We didn't even know these two were friends. Hopefully Ashlee will be playing herself in the sitcom because she isn't really the best actress.

She's doing so great playing Roxy Hart, maybe she should stick to musical theater. Just a thought. What do you guys think?
