DISHING with ASHLEE SIMPSON

Absolutely. I don't know about in a bikini washing a car though.

I used my sister's ID. They're like, Jessica Simpson? You're not Jessica Simpson.' I said, 'No, I'm not. I'll be leaving now.'

Brad Pitt. I'd love every hot woman to love me.

We don't read them anymore. We're done. The stories are horrible. [Laughs] They're in love. It's silly.

[Laughs] I don't have a problem with her.
