Ashlee Strings Ellen Along

Ashlee Simpson won't appear on The Ellen DeGeneres Show until later today (along with David Beckham) but US Weekly got a sneak peek of what is in store on the show ahead of time and provides some deets. In totally unsurprising news, Ashlee continues to play coy about whether or not she is pregs ... but Ellen gave it her best shot to try and get some semblance of truth out of her. Here are a couple screencaps from Ashlee's appearance on Ellen:

Ashlee Simpson is still remaining tight-lipped on her pregnancy. On The Ellen DeGeneres Show (airing Thursday), the talk show host asked her flat-out if she were expecting. "Well, that has been going on for quite a while. That is definitely something that I choose personally not to discuss except for the fact that maybe ..." She then added, "Do I look like I had 10 cheeseburgers or something ... because I don’t think I do," before standing up. Pointing to a photo of Jennifer Lopez, DeGeneres then asked, "You’re not going to keep this answer up as long as this woman did ..." Laughing, Simpson replied, "No, I’m not. I swear. I promise you that. I give you my pinky on that."

Once they were off the baby topic, Ashlee went on to talk about her hubby-to-be Pete Wentz revealing the exact moment that she knew she wanted to marry him was, "when his jeans fit me ... I decided we could wear the same clothes." AWWWW so precious. My guess is that Ash ain't pregs but she plans on playing this little coy game until she gets pregs and then can finally confirm the rumor. This cockamamie scheme just sounds like something that Papa Joe Simpson would concoct in order to exploit the situation for gain. Blech. That being said, I'm still gonna tune in to watch Ellen today ... hello, Becks will be on and will be doing at least some bit of stripping on the show. I'm so there. [Source]
