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.”

She looks great – really different from the picture where she was singing at some chili cook off and wearing those unflattering jeans.

I hope her first interview will be with her sister so they can both explore their fake noses, hair, teeth, boobs, personalities and all of the lies they engage in. A Simpson teaching the rest of us about beauty? Hilarious!

Wow, another one of daddy’s little inventations. I am not going to watch.

Didn’t Vanessa Manillo just do a reality show on inner beauty?? ha!

Hopefully she loses some weight while travelling. She would look much better 10 lbs lighter.

Oh please. The idea is a good concept but Jessica? Really? They need to hire someone worth watching. She bombed in pop, got demolished in country. She can’t act. It would be better if she just stuck with her clothes line. That way she doesn’t have to act and try to sound interesting!!

texas 13 are ya kidding me? There is some crazy stuff out there! At least for a season or two, if done right. And Jessica is so ditsy, she’ll probably try most of them out, so there will def. be people wanting to see that, whether they like her or not.

I’ve always liked Jess. I think this is more of an appropriate “reality show” for her. Hopefully, she will downplay her ditzy moments. I think it’s a very important issue that should be highlighted. I hope she and Tony get married and that she will be happy!
