My bad about being a bit "intoxicado" for this, my first episode summary for Season 2 of The Ashlee Simpson Show. I tried holding out for as long as I could, but that Miller High Life was just calling me. I felt like Chris Rock in New Jack City. As a lot of you know, I'm basically the godfather of the whole Ashlee Simpson movement, having written about it months before people even knew who she was way back when season 1 began. Hopefully, with these new episode summaries, I'll be able to reclaim my rightful position.
Episode 1 was actually relatively uneventful, I guess because they're trying to stretch the infamous SNL incident out over as many episodes as possible. This one was pretty much all build-up. It begins with Ashlee moving into her new house in LA, which is notable mainly because it shows her packing and makes it appear as if she doesn't own anything other than copious amounts of make-up and a few thongs. Sounds like my kind of woman. Helping her are her two "best friends," one who's kinda cute for a chubby little high school broad and another who's just phenomenally unattractive. Keep in mind this is coming from a dude who lives in fucking St. Louis. This bitch is motherfucking fugly.
The bulk of the rest of the episode consists of Ashlee, her band and her group of various handlers and hangers on getting ready for that fateful Saturday Night Live appearance. What I found most interesting was the interaction between Ashlee and her band, or should I say the complete lack thereof. During rehearsals in LA, she goes up to one of the guitarists and does some dumbass dance like, "I'm gonna do this during my performance." He just flashes her this look that's like, "Yeah, whatever bitch." After every rehearsal both in New York and LA, she goes up to her fucking make-up person of all people and is like, "That sounded really good, right?" Of course the poor lady says yes. In NY the rehearsals begin to sound a lot worse.
The night before the big day (i.e. Friday, I guess) she has a little celebratory dinner at some Chinese resturant and wakes up the next morning with a completely fucked up voice. Conspiracy, anyone?
Next week should be cool, with the actual lipsynching incident and immediate fallout.
