Ashlee Simpson's face has always been a world of mysteries. The odd angles. The strange protrusion. She is definitely not your average-looking teen pop star. So it's no surprise to hear (and from the looks of it, see) that she has had a nose job. Star Magazine reports that Ashlee went under the knife on April 21, and her new nose is straighter, and shorter, but sister Jessica Simpson is really pissed.
It seems younger sis Ashlee's recent nose job makes her look more like her big sis, Jessica. It's the latest move in a makeover that's seen Ashlee go from dark-haired, ratty rocker to sophisticated blonde. And sources tell Star that Jess, 25, is furious over Ashlee's apparent quest to morph into her more successful sis.
Early on April 21, a source says, Ashlee, 21, arrived at the office of famed Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Raj Kanodia with her parents, Joe and Tina, for a nose job. "Afterward, her parents helped her into a waiting SUV," says the source. And as pictures taken just a week later show, the change is dramatic. "Her nose is thinner and more feminine," says NYC-based plastic surgeon and rhinoplasty specialist Dr. Geoffrey Tobias, who hasn't treated Ashlee. In other words, more like Jess'.
Nose jobs like Ashlee's leave no scarring and little bruising -- recovery time is usually just five days. But while Ashlee may not be black-and-blue, she may feel bruised by Jess' reaction. "Jess was furious Ashlee was having her nose altered," says a source close to Jess. "She said the last thing she wants is her little sister looking just like her." Why not be flattered? "The older Ashlee gets, the more competitive the sisters have become," says the source of the once-close pair. "Jess is nervous that Ashlee's itching to muscle her way out of second place [in the Simpson family] by going from singer to actress -- and starring in a bigger hit than The Dukes of Hazzard." For now, Jess is still the bigger star -- but perhaps just by a nose!
I just love that Jessica Simpson is getting crazy jealous, and annoyed with her sister's incessant attempts at copying her. I just can't wait to hear stories of Ashlee Simpson hooking up with Nick Lachey. I think then we just might see some good old-fashioned fratricide.
