Having gained 20 pounds four months into her pregnancy, Star magazine has learned Ashlee Simpson is working with sister Jessica’s former trainer Mike Alexander to keep the weight in control by working out six days a week. “She’s still clinging to the hope that she can limit her total weight gain to no more than 30 to 35 pounds,” a family friend explained. Riding a stationary bike and doing Pilates has been Ashlee’s workout of choice, while her husband Pete Wentz has been voicing encouragement. The source said the Fall Out Boy bassist “constantly reassures her that she looks fabulous. He especially loves her growing bust.”
Ashlee Simpson On Why She Postponed Summer Tour
Ashlee Simpson-Wentz checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@ashleesimpson) on Sunday (June 1), discussing reasons for her postponed summer tour, though leaving out the massive sales slide of her new album ‘Bittersweat World’ in comparison to her two prior albums. Ashlee writes:
“The Dog Ate My Tour”
Dear friends, fans, lurkers, stalkers and sh**talkers!
I’m really sorry to announce that I’m going to postpone my tour this summer.
My team gave me a few reasons I could use:
1. jury duty (but you can get out of jury duty once)
2. creative differences (but I’m a solo artist so that didn’t make sense)
3. not in the mood/have a headache (wait, that was an excuse for Pete! and it didn’t work. See next reason)
4. the baby
…and that’s where I drew the line.
The truth is I want to put on an amazing show for you the next time I come to your town. I promise I will be back, better than ever and ready to rock out. Until then,
