Ashlee Simpson-Wentz & Colin Egglesfield Dropped From 'Melrose Place'
But Simpson-Wentz's part has now been cut from the show, along with co-star Colin Egglesfield's character Auggie Kirkpatrick.
Executive producer Todd Slavkin says, "We felt that once the murder mystery (involving their characters) was resolved, the tone of the show was going to shift and (Simpson-Wentz's) character would move on."
Simpson-Wentz and Egglesfield took the news "like professionals" because they were warned they could be dropped from the program.
Slavkin says, "They knew ahead of time (that leaving was a possibility); it wasn't a complete shock.
