Ashlee Simpson-Wentz is in awe of sister Jessica, who was dumped by beau Tony Romo the night before her 29th birthday in July.
"I don't think I've ever known anybody stronger than her," Ashlee told Usmagazine.com Monday at the CBS, CW, CBS Television Studios & Showtime TCA party in Pasadena, Calif. "My sister is amazing. I spend so much time with her."
Ashlee is currently gearing up for the fall premiere of her new CW show Melrose Place.
Balancing work and motherhood isn't as tough as it seems, said the mother of 8-month-old son Bronx.
"It's been good so far," she said. "For me, I wanted to do something that's a bit more stable, and it's been that, which has been perfect. And we get to travel. We've been to Paris, Japan, everywhere with my son. And he's so happy and healthy. I'm very fortunate he's on a good schedule."
She also said it's been fun playing a vixen.
"She's interesting. I think she's creepy," she told Us when asked to describe her character, Violet. "I think that she's unaccepted and wants to be loved."
Ashlee didn't watch the original Fox series regularly, but said she's "gone back and watched some of it [on DVD], and it's great."
Added Ashlee, "The fun thing about [the new show] is that hopefully people that watched it, and even watched the DVDs, will be into it because it brings the 'oohs and aahs' and the drama."
