Every day a multitude of stars wanders through the halls of MTV News to talk about their latest projects and goof around with staff members. But sometimes we catch stars elsewhere, and that’s why we put together Spotted!, a daily compendium of stars in the wild.
A slew of CW stars, including “Melrose Place” actress Ashlee Simpson-Wentz in a bright blue shorts ensemble, turned up at the Television Critics Association Press Tour this week to dish about their upcoming shows. (Why isn’t it September yet!?!) Click on the photo below to see more of Ashlee and a few other TCA guests.
On the reboot of the classic ’90s primetime soap, Ashlee plays small-town girl Violet, “whose disarming naivete masks the calculating, shrewd sex kitten within,” according to EW. She told the panel that hubby Pete Wentz, along with the rest of her family, has seen the pilot and loves it. But don’t expect “Melrose” to be a family affair. Ashlee shot down the idea of sister Jessica guest-starring on the drama. “I think we’ve mixed enough family and work, so for now we’re good just being sisters,” she said during the panel.
Ashlee was joined at TCA by several other CW cuties including former Wildcat Corbin Bleu who was promoting his series, the Mischa Barton-starring “Beautiful Life.”
