    • Anne

      haha, I was going to write the EXACT same thing!

    • SaraD

      Maybe now Ashlee can start eating again.

  • occ

    who cares…

    • SXiPPY

      Seriously, these bottom-feeders haven’t been relevant in a long time. And who really didn’t foresee this coming when they got married? Hollywood marriages have a shelf life of 2 years max, so it simply ran its course. Sure, they appeared made for each other, but what happens when two people are incapable of growing up or one does and the other bears no signs of doing so? Whether that be the case here or not; who’s to say all this isn’t just another publicity stunt from two juvenile has-beens?

      • hey

        Ummm…calm down.

      • Caren

        So, you know them personally then?

      • Mia

        Hollywood marriages have MORE than a 2 yr shelf life.

      • Ashley

        This comment is for Mia. most couples who have been married in Hollywood in the past decade or two tend to divorce in under two years. Britney Spears was not married for two years total, and that encompasses two marriages. Drew Barrymore has a tendency to get married for less than a year, Renee Zellweger’s marriage was what, 6 months? Many celebrities get married for the publicity or do it on impulse. They feel they have no consequences. I felt from day 1 that this was a shotgun wedding because in under 6 months, they got engaged, married, and then she gave birth and her dad is notoriously churchy.

  • Katie

    Dude, that’s a total bummer. They always seemed to blissfully happy. Total shock. I fear the girls in the Simpson family may not have good luck with marriage. What was Jessica and Nick’s… like, 4 years or something?

    • allie

      Nope theirs was just under 3 I think.

  • UGH

    So sad. Those two dummies deserved each other.

  • Chris

    Did Ashlee actually make the announcement, or was it pre-recorded and she mouthed the words?

    • ST

      haha, that made me laugh out loud!

    • Kris

      Would have been funny maybe 4 years ago.

      • Chris

        Maybe, but since you’ll never be funny, I guess I win.

      • Liz

        No it’s still funny.

      • Jeff

        True, Chris’ comment might have been more relevant four years ago but Ashley Simpson hasn’t done anything since then – either way, still funny.

      • Ian

        Chris, you would have won if you didn’t try so hard on the second one, which was lame. What exactly did you win? A free oven mitt?

      • Chris

        Aw, did I hurt your widdle feelwins, Ian? Do you need a nap? Is Sesame Street not on today?

    • RK

      Winner!

  • Steve

    No surprise. They only got married because Ashlee got pregnant. Now hopefully both of these has-beens will quietly disappear.

  • edward

    Haven’t people ever heard of just living together?

    • Other Mel

      Riiiight, because “living together” makes breaking up so much less painful. Good call.

      • Nathan

        Definitely makes it easier financially.

      • but p!

        Yeah, but marriage is supposed to be a commitment for life, if you are not ready commit, you live together.

      • edward

        No, it makes it less messy.

    • Juneau

      Ummm – if you’re not ready to commit you DON’T HAVE A CHILD!!!

      • but p!

        yeah well, in a perfect world there would be no unplanned pregnancies..just because you are pregnant, doesn’t mean you have to be together. That’s just making a bad situation worse.

      • tomm

        How about giving babies to loving childless couples?

      • Ian

        Why would you have to give it to anyone just because it was unplanned? They didn’t have an abortion, Einstein, they had a child. A child can get just as much love from divorced parents. What a tool…

    • Elizabeth

      Have you ever heard of Jesus?

      • Tristan

        Yes, Jesus is in my ride share; him and his brother Mario work in accounting a couple cubes over from mine. How do you know Jesus? What a small world.

      • RK

        He cuts my lawn!

      • not pleased

        That’s Mr.Jebus to you human

    • Ap

      Have to agree with you here. Just because she got pregnant didn’t mean they should’ve got married. Look at where it got them.

    • Amber

      I understand that they may have felt enormous pressure to get married given the pregnancy and how religious the Simpson family once claimed to be (that’s not a comment on whether or not they actually are, I’m just not informed on whether or not they still claim to be). But like my mother the preacher’s wife always told me, “You already skipped the protection, which was a questionable decision, there’s no reason to create a new set of problems by marrying someone who you wouldn’t marry without a baby.” Just saying, even the uber-religious are not Nazis about this anymore.

  • edward

    Why are these “kids” always in such a hurry to get married?

    • Piper

      Because they forgot to use protection and Ashlee got pregnant.

      • Kat

        yeah right “forgot”….

      • jodipo

        EXACTLY! she got pregnant so the law says she HAS to get maried. Its not like you see unmarried mothers just walking around free or anything… oh wait

  • Mikey M

    I’ll take Wentz anyday.
    Ashlee is a no talent and will dissapear in a few years.
    Why do these young stars Marry only to divorce after a year or two???
    Is Divorce the quick fix?

  • miss k

    Huh. Actually disappointed.

  • marie j

    well… it didn’t last so long…

  • Gabriella V

    This comes as no surprise. They have had a rocky relationship for the whole two years. I agree with all the people above who said they got married for her pregnancy. That never works out, but at least they were trying to do what they thought was “right”. People! You don’t have to marry someone to share love to a child a be good parents! This just proves that humans really can’t stay together with one person forever unless they contantly sacrifice and both people are willing to commit forever, which is really rare, especially nowadays! especially in Hollywood!

  • Iakovos

    They welcomed PR when they dated, gotpregnant, got engaged, birthed, pursued their careers (her CHICAGO and MELROSE turns), and now they want to be left alone as they divorce. Puh-leeze! (Not that these two really capitvate our interest anyway.) … Why is it celebrities (A to D) cannot seem to function in relationships? Why do they even bother?

  • Ben

    You can’t lip sync a marriage…

    • No

      Nice try, but that’s just not funny and wouldn’t have been funny 4 years ago either…see comments above.

  • Juneau

    SHOCKER!!! (eye roll)
