Simpson Rivalry? What Ashlee Has that Jessica Wants

Ashlee Simpson-Wentz has come a long way from being the little girl in her superstar sister's shadow.

Back in the Newlyweds days, when Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey were MTV reality sweethearts, Ash was just an up-and-coming-singer, trying to make her own mark in the biz.

Nowadays, Ashlee is all grown up -- she's a wife to Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz, a mom to their son Bronx, and has a role on The CW's new Melrose Place – while Jess continues to struggle through one bad relationship after another.

So who's jealous of whom now?

"She's always saying, 'Oh, I want a baby!'" Ash said of her big sister, in the new issue of Redbook. "Being a mom's so empowering and incredible. I'm one of those people who believes that life brings things to you at a certain time for a certain reason, and if you just go with it, that's where the best moments come from."

And, if you think that, maybe, Ashlee wishes she could be living the young single life like Jess – you'd be wrong. When asked if she envies Jessica's freedom, Ashlee's answer was direct.

"I really don't," she said.
