Colin Egglesfield & Ashlee Simpson to exit 'Melrose Place' ...what happened?

simpson_egglesfield.jpgThe upcoming exits of "Melrose Place" series regulars Colin Egglesfield and Ashlee Simpson-Wentz were announced this week, but one of these departures is not like the other.

I'm talking about what I know...

P.S. Stay tuned for some quality one-on-one time with Colin, during which he talks candidly about what's still coming up for Auggie and Ashlee's Violet on the show... should have that for you early next week.

*Note: For the record, Amy Locane only appeared in 13 episodes of the original "Melrose" series, my mistake!

...So I suppose the Colin-Ashlee situation is a bit of history repeated. Wonder if Heather's arrival in November will repeat a little history as well...
