Her acting has been criticized since her first scene on Melrose Place, but it still came as a surprise when Ashlee Simpson-Wentz was let go from the show this week.
Still, we've gotta give the "actress" credit for her classy response to the news. In a statement to E! News, Simpson-Wentz wrote:
"Having the chance to play Violet on Melrose Place has been a thrill. Although I always knew her story would come to a final, insanely unpredictable end, playing a creepy, unstable character was something I always wanted to do, so I jumped at the chance. Thanks to the CW and the entire cast and crew of Melrose Place for allowing me this opportunity!"
