Ashlee Cleans Out Her Closet

We know the Simpson sisters love to shop. This means they have closets full of fabulous clothes. Well it turns out this sister is not so selfish. She decided to clean out her designer duds and give them to her help this holiday season. Just proves that one man's trash is another's treasure. It's nice to hear that Ashlee was so generous. Here's more:

...she discovered how many barely worn outfits from designers like Marc Jacobs, Juicy Couture and Calypso she owned. Rather than let the clothing remain in the back of her closet, the singer gifted a number of the outfits to her cleaning woman, Maria. Maria, who hails from Brazil, was so thrilled by Ashlee's generosity that she sent some items back home for her family. "It makes Ashlee feel so wonderful to be able to give something back," says a pal. "It's truly what Christmas is all about for her."

We love when celebs give back some of their good fortune even if it is smaller donations like these - at least it's a start. More pictures of Ashlee and her man so

Those are bad jeans on any body. She shoulda added it to the Brazil pack. I hope those were samples. I can't tolerate people who buy clothes and never wear them. WTF was the point?

Without reading the headline I first thought Nicole Richie, but soon realized my mistake when I saw this girl has an ass. Her maid's family will probably sell the stuff to buy what they really need.

It's nice that she gave it to her housekeeper. If it had been *me* I would have sold them, and given the money to charity.
I thought that was a pic. of one of the Olsen twins.
Why is this news? Don't most people donate their old clothes?

yeah, i was gonna say she's either put on a few pounds (not a bad thing) or those pockets are not doing her justice.

What are the chances "the help" is a size 0 and can actually wear this stuff?

This is nice of her, but those jeans aren't doing ANYTHING nice for her bottom half. :P

...oops. wrong sisters. but, I still stand by all those nasty things I said about the Olsen twins. don't even get me started on Asslee. if I headed Marie Claire, I would have shamed her publicly for the rest of her life for preaching to young girls about accepting who they are, and then going out and getting her honker "repaired." she's disgusting...

...gave her unwanted clothing to the maid. yeesh! and you think they're so oblivious they actually leaked this little trashy-bourgeois bon-mot deliberately? coincidentally, I saw the two little oompah-loompahs on tv this morning in a movie that also starred a very chunky kirstey alley (sp?) and a predictably cheesey Steve-the luckiest man in America - Guttenberg. what's with our taste people? those girls were just plain trollish looking...

Right Miss S. This just makes Ashley look more greedy than good. If this crap made it to the tabs then it must be the first and probably only time she has ever done anything benevolent. I really hate anything Pimpson related! There's just no need to ring the bell when you donate! I wish all celebs would just be silent about donating. It really just makes me dislike them more when they talk about it or LEAK it to the tabs. Free publicity? Um, yeah. Most of us are too smart and see through this publicity stunt mess.
Miss-Stephanie Miss-Stephanie 10 years overpriced outfits to a woman who can't even make enough money in her own country that she has to come to America. ...I'm sure they will all just look fabulous while they beg for food. I know I'm being a smartass here, but come on, I'm embarassed for the tone of this article...making her sound like a Saint. Bad idea to draw attention to generousity unless it's truly life-changing.

Oh, man...I thought the days of celebs dragging their dogs around with them were history. Ashlee's an idiot, the end.

I agree 100% Blonde Sugar!! I think what she did was very nice. Reguardless as to who she gave it to, she still gave it to someone who normally could not afford such expensive clothes. And I also agree it shouldn't have been news, Papa Joe has found himself 2 goldmines and does everything he can to promote them. They are his children not his bank!
Hollygolitely Hollygolitely 10 years
Pappa Joe definitely fed this to us. I don't care about either of these girls. We all donate our clothes. What else would you do with them? Burn them? I know her cleaning lady didn't tell the tabs about this because that's grounds to fire a person. That family lives their lives through the tabloids. Besides, they can't wear anything that's out of style. They'd be made fun of.

Good for her... I am sure Papa Joe fed this little nugget to the press. I'm sure e realizes that being a humanitarian is "in" Gotta get that + press for his little gold mines Holla Back!

No matter what they do people are going to say, "Why didn't she do this, She should have done that." I think it's a nice thing, but by all means should have not been news. I give my clothes away all the time, as I'm sure a lot of you do.

We donate our clothes to the salvation army twice a year but, then again I don't have a housekeeper to give them to.
I don't agree with giving the designer clothing to a shelter or to the homeless. That's all we need is the homeless walking around in pricey clothes. What she should have done is sold the pricey clothing and gotten fair market value and then donated the money to a shelter or the homeless. The money could buy the less fortunate more of reasonably priced clothing and maybe have some $ left over to feed their kids or something. Yeah it would be great to walk aroung homeless wearing Juicy Couture it doesn't make much sense.....

She sure like tapping her band for dates..that can get messy. And the only thing recognizable about her is the dog. And even that seems pathetic... great if she is borrowing Daisy to help her sister out...really bad if she got a matching dog..they aren't LV bags!!
