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.”

I have mixed emotions about this show and Jessica Simpson,ONE I am happy for her that she has apparently found a show that she is passionate about, I hope she can pull it off, I agree that she needs to STOP acting so stupid for attention, it annoys people and its not cute, Its not jealousy its just a statement. I dont know why people are defending or disagreeing with her personal character.. HOW MANY OF YOU HAVE ACTUALLY MET HER… Thats what I thought. dont speak unless you know.

Good Luck with the show!!

Is this what my fellow American people depend upon for excitement in their lives? Why do we need details on the private life of Jessica Simpson, or any other celebrity for that matter? Have we all become like the nosey next door neighbor, who sits in her kitchen window to spy on everyone in the neighborhood? This is really pathetic…but I guess as pathetic it seems, Jessica Simpson is laughing all the way to the bank, at our expense.

To the people that are fans of Jessica that say negative commenter’s are ‘jealous’ – HARDLY! There are plenty of lovely/beautiful & talented celebrities that I will gladly say nice things about. Jessica Simpson is not one of them. That does not make me ‘jealous’ of her. She simply invokes complete & utter annoyance from a lot of people. Her pitiful singing in how many genres with the scary contorted faces. Her lame attempts at acting. Her fake personality. Her desperate pimping of most every relationship she’s been in. The girl is a pathetic cartoon.

Beats being on a reality show called, “The price of being fat”. Everyone is so mean to her. I feel for her. She’s beautiful. I don’t think she’s doing what she really loves. I think she’s doing what is expected of her. And it’s not working out. All the best to her.

Jealous? on

Why would anyone be jealous of a short average=looking, yes average looking divorced has been? I mean I would be jealous of Scarlet Johanson, Natalie Portman, Carrie Underwood, Jessica Biel, BUT not a horse face no talent Jessica Simpson. Please. Why do we write? Because someone PLEASE listen: The majority is sick of her. Stop the madness!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
