Sister act: Jessica Simpson expands line

Jessica Simpson has taken pity on her attention-starved little sister and given Ashlee Simpson a piece of her fashion fortune!

Ashlee Simpson will be designing a tween line aimed at trendy seven to 16-year-olds who don't like their clothes to match.

"I'm excited to bring my sister... to this division," Jess told Women's Wear Daily, "because she brings a savvy rocker edge that defines today's tweens."

Ashlee said, "My goal... will be to design clothes that will help inspire young girls to express their personalities and creativity through fashion."

Let's break this down. Jessica is excited her sister will be earning some money again and not siphoning off the JSimp bank accounts for a while -- Jessica does have a wedding to pay for, after all. Ashlee is excited to have a job for the first time since she wrapped her Chicago run almost a year and a half ago.

Hey, someone's gotta pay that divorce lawyer -- Ashlee's split from Pete Wentz is not yet finalized.
