Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz, partying with Jessica Simpson and friends at L.A.'s Hyde Lounge. "Jessica was really enjoying herself, just hanging out with the girls," an observer tells us. "She took pictures of everyone with her digital camera. Ashlee contorted her mouth, eyes, eyebrows and cheeks in a funny-face style as she posed with her sister, their friends and Pete." And Ashlee and Pete – who seem to be making Hyde one of their hangs – "looked very cozy together, sitting side by side." Days later at the relaunch of Genetic Denim at L.A.'s Arena, Wentz told us that he and Simpson are "just friends," but added that she's a "sweet girl."
