Ashlee Leaving 'Melrose Place'

Ashlee Simpson-Wentz Leaving 'Melrose Place'

Singer/actress Ashlee Simpson-Wentz is packing her bags. Ashlee is moving on from "Melrose Place," along with handsome castmate Colin Egglesfield.

Executive producers tell that Ashlee's character Violet was intended to be short-lived. Once the "Who Killed Sydney?" mystery wraps in December, the 25-year-old will say goodbye to the sexy series.

EW reports Simpson-Wentz and Egglesfield's last episode will air in January.
