"Jumped the Shark" refers to the moment a pop-culture phenomenon crosses the line into self-parody (from an episode of "Happy Days" when the Fonz waterskiid over a shark). by the strictest definition, I believe Ashley has done so in record time.
Ashlee Simpson is DONE, you can stick a fork in here now. Â Thank god for Saturday Night Live Â She was actually booed at some of the venues she sang at after that debacle.
This is what I mean. I, personally, had barely even heard of her before the SNL/booing stuff. Now, I watch her show. It's spine-crushingly hilarious, and waaay beyond "Newlyweds" in bitterness toward its subject. They do all they can to make her hateable. Some enjoy it for that, some just actually like her, and are blind to it.
