Ashlee Simpsonâ€™s Melrose Place days are over. She will be written out of the story along with Colin Egglesfield in an episode that airs early next year.
It turns out it wasnâ€™t in the cards for her to stay on board long term to begin with. Entertainment Weekly ran an interview with with executive producer Todd Slavkin with more info on the decision.
Hereâ€™s what he had to say:
â€śWell, we always knew that this murder mystery would end in episode 12. 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 wayâ€¦â€ť
Slavkin went on to say that Simpson and Egglesfield handled it very well when they were given the news.
