Jessica Simpson Stars in New Reality Series: The Price of Beauty

Ever since she performed at a Florida concert last February in high-waisted “mom jeans” that made her the target of scrutiny by body bullies, Jessica Simpson has continued to be critiqued about her figure and her weight. And now it’s her turn to do the scrutinizing in her new VH1 docu-series called The Price of Beauty.

Starting in July, Jessica will travel the globe talking to everyday women about the lengths they go for beauty, while investigating — and even participating in — some of their dietary fads, beauty regimens and apparel. “When [I was approached] for a show about true beauty, I was immediately intrigued,” Jessica said in a statement. “I have always believed that beauty comes from within and confidence will always make a woman beautiful, but I know how much pressure some women put on themselves to look perfect. I am really looking forward to discovering how beauty is perceived in different cultures and participating in some of the crazy things people do to feel beautiful. I know we will all learn a lot on this journey.”

Simpson seems to have moved past the criticism targeted at her earlier in the year, and is looking forward to the next chapter in her career. “Jessica is so excited to start shooting the show,” says a source close to the pop star. “She has been doing research into some of the insane things people do to try to make themselves more beautiful and she is shocked. She thinks it will be fun to try some of them.”

The show has a good premise…it’s all in the execution. People should lighten up on Jess. Who of us would come off the way we hope if WE were filmed 24/7? She’s no fool if she’s making it in that cut-throat business. And as for pushing herself on us…do you only have one channel in your neck of the woods or do you have a remote? Best of luck to her, I’ll tune in at least once or twice to see how it goes.

I think it is great.
Jess is really fun to watch. She seems like a sweet girl with a warm heart but her goofiness makes for great Telly.

I think that the is a chance of the show being boring so they will have to work hard to ensure that we get enough of her personality in the reality vein of things balanced with the documentary exploration of beauty.

I hope she brings Daisy along. :)

This is funny…the “TRUE BEAUTY…Vanessa Manillo already hosted a show like that called “TRUE BEAUTY”!!! Jessica, you just need to go back home to Texas…you’ll never hang with Carrie Underwood or Vanessa Manillo. Sorry, but you had your day in the spotlight. Now you are old news!!! Can’t act, can’t sing, and now you just seem desperate and pathetic. Your little sister is the real deal…maybe you could take a few lessons from her!!!
