Former Newlyweds star Jessica Simpson will be returning to reality TV, this time on VH1. The singer—who has been the object of ridicule for the better part of the year for her weight—will host a docu-series called The Price of Beauty. For the show, Simpson will travel the world to talk to women about beauty fads and dietary regimens. “When [I was approached] for a show about true beauty, I wasimmediately intrigued,” Jessica said in a statement to People. “I have alwaysbelieved that beauty comes from within and confidence will always makea woman beautiful, but I know how much pressure some women put onthemselves to look perfect. I am really looking forward to discoveringhow beauty is perceived in different cultures and participating in someof the crazy things people do to feel beautiful. I know we will alllearn a lot on this journey.”
