Ashlee Simpson Leaving ‘Melrose Place’ In January
October 23, 2009 – EW.com reports Ashlee Simpson-Wentz and Colin Egglesfield have been let go from ‘Melrose Place’, with their final episode airing in January. Co-executive producer Todd Slavkin explained that this was the plan in development of the CW series.
“Well, we always knew that this murder mystery would end in episode 12,” Slavkin explained. “And we always knew that [Ashlee’s] character of Violet would be instrumental in that as a suspect, and [Colin’s character of] Augie as well. And once that murder mystery was solved, she would go on her way. That was the original plan going into the development of the show.”
As for how they took the news, Slavkin said, “They’re total professionals and they took it like professionals.”
