She is at the very end and it could happen at any point now.” Pete added that he’s going was going to see the doctor later in the day. “[Ashlee] was like, ‘Pete, the visit is going to be a little more gynecological’, like stuff I don’t want to talk about. I’m like, ‘I’m going to a gyno visit?’ I’m stuttering now all freaked out.”

Pete said Ashlee was “excited, anxious… I think she wants it to be over. She wants to just be not pregnant anymore. She wants to have it, because it’s a struggle to go up and down the stairs. Going out in public is insane. She’s hot all the time. She’s like, ‘I wish I was in Canada right now.’ She’s like always hot no matter what. Our room temperature is set to like 34 degrees. It’s insane.”

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,
Love,
Ashlee

Ashlee Simpson in a straight jacket on a music video shootThe second webisode of ‘Being… Ashlee Simpson’ is out, featuring more behind-the-scenes footage from her ‘Outta My Head (Ay Ya Ya)’ video shoot, where fans can find out what it was like for Ashlee to learn to fly. Hanging upside-down in a fashionable, Vivienne Westwood straight jacket was no easy task, but Ashlee had to learn to tough it out. Simpson had her buddy Kenna on set to make a cameo and provide some comic relief.

“Today we are second day video shoot near the Burbank airport,” Ashlee explained. “Yesterday we were in the desert, so it’s kind of nice to be a controlled environment. Today should all in all be a fun day. We’re doing some front looks so it’s hair and makeup. Everybody gets to be creative and playing lots of different characters.”

Explaining her outfit, Ashlee said, “I am wearing a fashionable straight jacket. Vivienne Westwood in there, so it’s not the complete, normal straight jacket outfit. We’re about to shoot a scene where I’m kinda going out of my head. It’s fun because I can be a little whacky.”
