I thought, for the briefest of times, that there was a possibility that Ashlee Simpson
would stick it out with Pete Wentz, Fall Out Boy bassist and the father of her son, Bronx. Even after they announced they were getting divorced, I hoped that things would turn around and get better. I'm a romantic like that. Two iconic pop images like them, gosh darn it! They shoulda been perfect. But it seems that the divorce went through, Pete went back to old girlfriend Michelle Trachtenberg, Ashlee disappeared from the limelight until she suddenly popped up in Hawaii, seen playing on the beach with her son while she made sure to bend over and give the nosy paps exactly what they needed. And what all of us needed as well. Rump shaker, rump shaker, let me turn you into a baby maker. (It's the end of the year and I'm losing my mind, bear with me.)
