Ashlee Simpson Forgets Broadway Co-Star's Name

Ashlee Simpson

Being asked about her Broadway co-star's name, the wife of Pete Wentz have nothing to say but 'Oh my god! Names, names, names' after only a month performing in the same stage.

Ashlee Simpson was left red-faced on live U.S. TV on Thursday, December 24, after forgetting the name of her leading man in Broadway musical "Chicago". The singer-turned-actress made her Broadway debut as Roxie Hart on November 30.

And, after almost a month of performances, Simpson was tongue-tied when asked to recall her co-star Brent Barrett, the actor who plays Billy Flynn, during a segment on breakfast program, "The Today Show".

Embarrassed, the star appeared desperate to remember the name, but instead excused herself: "Oh my god! Names, names, names, names, names."

The 25 year old has already tested her popularity backstage - cast members reportedly complained she barricaded her family from the rest of the cast in "a makeshift VIP section", at an after-party for her debut.
