ashlee simpson and evan ross

Ashlee Simpson revealed on Monday, Jan. 13 that she is engaged to Hollywood actor Evan Ross.

He is the son of veteran singing icon Diana Ross and Norwegian businessman, shipping magnate and mountaineer, Arne Naess, Jr., who died in a climbing accident in South Africa a decade ago.

Ashlee, 29, tweeted with obvious glee, "My baby love and I are ENGAGED!!! Hallelujah Hawaii !!!!!"  The newly-engaged sister of Jessica Simpson included this photo that provides a good look at her decidedly unusual engagement ring.

Her fiance gushed on Twitter, "The love of my life said YES!!!!!!"

Ross, 25, told Us Weekly , "I'm so in love and we've got amazing things going on. And we inspire each other. So it's cool."

Friends for nearly a decade, Evan and Ashlee went public with their relationship in early July 2013.

He began his film career in 1999 and will appear later this year in 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1,' and 'Part 2' in 2015.  He is also an accomplished R&B and Pop musician who released a single 'Yes Me' in 2011.

The bride-to-be has released three studio albums (2004-2008) and appeared in 2009 as Roxie Hart on Broadway in 'Chicago,' and reprised the role at the Hollywood Bowl in 2013.  Her latest film, 'Pawn Shop Chronicles,' had a limited release in July 2013.

This is the second marriage for Ashlee, who was previously married to Fall Out Boy rocker Pete Wentz. Their only child, son Bronx, is 5.

jessica and ashlee simpson

Jessica Simpson and her sister Ashlee traveled to Dallas over the weekend to attend an event at North Park Mall.

The Texas-born sisters were in town to promote new items from the Jessica Simpson Collection -- a fashion line of clothing, shoes, handbags, jewelry, fragrances and sunglasses designed specifically for upscale department store chain Dillard's.

Along for the trip were Jessica's fiance Eric Johnson and their two children, 4-month-old Ace and 18-month-old Maxwell.

Daughter Maxwell, already quite the fashionista, was rocking a black leather jacket, cheetah print leggings and boots...adorable!

Simpson recently filmed a new ad campaign commercial for Weight Watchers that will debut at the end of the month.  We think you'll agree that she has definitely fulfilled her end of the bargain after shedding all of her baby weight following the birth of Ace Knute on June 30.

She playfully sticks out her tongue while posing at Saturday's event as he sister looks on.

ashlee and her boardwalk empire bf split

Ashlee Simpson is single again, having recently split from her 'Boardwalk Empire' actor boyfriend Vincent Piazza.

The 28-year-old sister of fashion designer Jessica Simpson filed for divorce from rocker Pete Wentz in February 2011 and hooked up with Piazza a few months later.

It appears Vincent's busy schedule and the fact that his home base and film location is in New York City is to blame for the breakup.  He portrays a gangster on the successful HBO show that is now in its third season.

This is perhaps why Ashlee has been joined-at-the-hip recently with her successful older sister during a number of Jessica's promo appearances.

The mother of 4-year-old Bronx hopes to resurrect her own career with the release of a fourth studio album.  She dropped a new single Bat For A Heart on Nov. 21.

Ashlee Simpson dumping her man ...

After two years of marriage, Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz have called it quits.  She filed for divorce in L.A. Superior Court, citing irreconcilable differences.

The couple released a statement through her rep: "After careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to file for divorce.  We remain friends and deeply committed and loving parents to our son Bronx, whose happiness and well-being remains our No. 1 priority.  We ask that everyone honor our privacy as we navigate this next phase of our lives."

The 26-year-old sister of Jessica Simpson is seeking primary physical custody of their 2-year-old son, and is seeking spousal support from her musician husband.  She has also petitioned the court to remove the hyphenated Wentz from her last name.

Wow, we're kind of shocked that Jessica Simpson is actually taking a stand for her sister Ashlee Simpson, who was recently booted from CW's Melrose Place.  Ashlee took the high road and decided to go out with grace, but her big sis decided to get in a nasty parting shot.

The current trend is for celebrities to 'tweet' their angst and that is exactly what Jess did last night.

"CW catching up on MP.  Who writes this crap?  I have had bad scripts to work with but this?  Thank God my sister is amazing and got you some press."

Check out Ashlee's classy statement here.  Hey Jessica, we have seen a few of your films and find it hard to believe Melrose Place is worse...we're just saying.

ashlee simpson cut from melrose place

It turned out to be a short-lived comeback for Ashlee Simpson WentzEntertainment Weekly is reporting that Ashlee and her co-star Colin Egglesfield have been booted from the CW drama Melrose Place.

Both celebrities were fully aware from the get-go that their roles would be ending once the whole "murder mystery" that they were tangled in got resolved.  That has happened and they have been given their walking papers.

Ashlee released the following statement, "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."

The excitement doesn't end here.  Heather Locklear returned to Melrose Place a few weeks ago and word is that her next three episodes will involve a new love interest.  Executive producer Todd Slavkin said that Locklear is going to appear in all episodes going forward and will be the show's main focus.

ashlee and jessica at wet republic swimsuit pics

Jessica Simpson, known for her body issues, braved it on Friday by putting on a black swimsuit to help her little sister Ashlee Simpson Wentz celebrate her 25th birthday at MGM Grand hot spot Wet Republic in Las Vegas.

We hesitate to call her undergarment a bikini because it looks more substantial than that with its high waist.  The transparent coverup, a bit of a puzzler, was no doubt chosen to afford her further least that is our best guess.

For a walk down memory lane, we've included a bikini pic from back in the day...when Jessica was at the top of her game.

Sunday night Pete Wentz got his head shaved on stage at Madison Square Garden - photos and video here.

View more swimsuit photos below.

It looks like we won't be seeing or hearing Amanda Woodward back on the streets of Melrose Place after all.  Actress Heather Locklear was expected by many to return to reprise her role as Amanda, but apparently it is not to be.

A source close to the set said that "There wasn't a way to bring her back that made sense."  No matter how the media spins it, Locklear's side says they are the ones who turned down the deal.

Who can you look forward to seeing on the new Melrose?   New mommy Ashlee Simpson will have a spot, as will the daughter of David Cassidy, Katie.

Another oldie but goody Lisa Rinna, who played Taylor McBride on the original show, is campaigning to be back on the set and is going to great lengths to show the producers that her fans miss her.  If Rinna's magic doesn't work, don't despair because you will get a chance to see her this summer on the pages of Playboy.

Will you watch Melrose Place this fall?
