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.”

Love Jessica! This sounds like a great idea, hopefully it will play out well on TV. We women go through a lot of crazy stuff in the name of beauty.

I think it’s time for Jessica to throw in the towel. This show will probably be as good, and last about as long as her country singing did.

She is a “looser”. She can’t sing, she can’t act. She will fail in this show too!

Jess, I think you are so beautiful. I was so unhappy when you and Nick divorced, you both were meant for each other, you were young and did not realize that there are ups and down in marriage and should have tried to make things work. I wish you the best in your new endeavor. Good luck and God bless.

She was admirable and interesting when she would perform wearing pantsuits- there would be her father, sister,handsome-husband: She defined beauty with class, so her vocal quality really stood out. She was ranking up there with the likes of the movie star from the past-Dorris Day-(who displayed a well rounded talent; she was cute in appearance and clean cut dressed;genuine, innocent, smart, classy; an actress known for her girl next door personality who could sing, dance,act,interview, star in drama or comedy); but Ms. Simpson’s image changed to being known only for sexiness.

I think the people that are leaving rude comments need to more interested in the concept of the show rather than their hatred for one person. The show is a good idea. I having been going through appearence issues with my body since I had my son. I would like to see the show, so I would not feel alone.
