When Ashlee Simpson made her triumph return to reality television this fall, she brought her husband Evan Ross along for the ride. However, according a source close to the couple, the Ashlee + Evan series might have done more harm than good.
The E! show premiered back on September 9 and had a short season that consisted of only 6 episodes.
Cameras followed the young couple as they struggled to find a balance between parenthood, their attempt to finish their debut album, and the struggle to live up to their famous family names.
In the months leading up to the premiere, the couple enjoyed a jam-packed promo tour, where they expressed excitement at getting to show fans a different side of their relationship. The show was slated to be a success.
Except it wasn’t the runaway hit they expected. It’s been about 2 months since the last episode aired, and Ashlee + Evan still hasn’t been given the green light for another season.
An insider exclusively told OK! that the threat of cancellation is now putting a massive strain on the couple’s relationship. “Ashlee assured Evan that the show would be a hit,” the source claimed.
