Ashlee Simpson: There's "no truth" to new reality dating show report

By Christopher Rocchio, 02/06/2008 

Pete Wentz can breathe a sigh of relief -- his girlfriend Ashlee Simpson apparently won't be promoting her upcoming album via a new reality dating show.

"There is absolutely no truth at all to Ashlee and [her father] Joe working on a new reality show," Ashlee's representative told In Touch Weekly in the magazine's February 4 issue.

An insider told OK! Weekly last month that Joe was "pushing" a new I Love New York-like reality dating series starring his youngest daughter.

"It will put 14 guys in a house and they will compete to date Ashlee," the insider told OK!.  According to insider, the show had been tentatively titled Lipsync Jungle -- a reference to Ashlee's October 2004 Saturday Night Live lip-synching mishap.

Ashlee's first foray into reality television was Summer 2004's The Ashlee Simpson Show, which aired on MTV immediately following third-season episodes of Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica, the reality series starring Ashlee's big sister Jessica and her husband at the time Nick Lachey.

It followed the then-19-year-old as she recorded her debut album, "Autobiography," which made its July 2004 debut at No. 1 on The Billboard 200 album sales chart -- presumably prompting the rumors that Joe was planning Lipsync Jungle prior to the release of Ashlee's third album "Bittersweet World," which is schedule to drop in March.

However there seemed to be a small snafu with the plan right from the start, as Ashlee has been dating Wentz -- Fall Out Boy's bassist -- for more than a year.
