Simpson Sister Joins Supernatural Star on Melrose’s Michael Ausiello reports that Ashlee Simpson-Wentz is joining the cast of The CW’s new version of Melrose Place. The singer/actress will play Violet, described by Ausiello as “a character whose disarming naivet? masks the calculating, shrewd sex kitten within.”

Simpson-Wentz joins the already cast Katie Cassidy (Supernatural’s first Ruby) and Michael Rady (Swingtown). Ausiello says that the producers are working hard to get Heather Locklear to return as her iconic character Amanda, with one source telling him “it’s looking good.”

While the show is in the pilot stage, Ausiello notes it’s considered “a lock” to make it onto the network’s fall lineup.
