Jessica Simpson's 'The Price of Beauty': This is the Must List, hear it roar

Based purely on the number of classic pop culture moments Jessica Simpson produced during Newlyweds, we all know that her upcoming VH1 show The Price of Beauty will at least be watchable. And based on the preview, I think I’ll actually enjoy it.

The eight-episode series will feature Simpson (with best friends Ken Paves and CaCee Cob in tow) traveling the world to discover how beauty is defined. Simpson seems to have toned down the goofy nature that we became familiar with during her Newlyweds era, but I imagine that’s in part due to the show’s serious nature. On that note, the information gathered during her around-the-world tour will likely not be groundbreaking — anyone who regularly tunes in to the National Geographic Channel has already seen wonderfully executed specials about the same subject. But with someone as relatable, likable, and relevant as Simpson, I imagine the information will reach new audiences.

Message aside, this is Jessica Simpson we’re talking about. She’s traveling to exotic places like Thailand, Mumbai, and Uganda, encountering things she’s never seen before. You know there will be at least one viral clip to come out of this. If for that fact alone, it’s on my Must List. It doesn’t premiere until March 15, but what’s wrong with planning ahead? Also, catch Simpson on today’s Oprah, where she’ll talk about Price of Beauty and John Mayer.

Now it’s your turn. What’s on your Must List this week and in the coming days? Alice in Wonderland anyone? Is there an iPhone app that has so much of your attention that you’re bumping into people as you walk down the street? How about a TV show/website or book? Sound off below!

    this looks good if it focuses on a humanitarian cause.

    John Mayer treats objects like women, man…

    Just watched Jessica Simpson on Oprah. You know, I’ve always liked her, and now I like her even more. She’s beautiful inside and out, and I look forward to this show. John Mayer, you’re an idiot.

    • Quagmire

      Apparently she’s VERY beautiful inside, if John Mayer is to be believed. Giggity!

  • no

    Never liked her…won’t watch her on Oprah or the reality show.

  • Remy

    I love it.

    I’m also loving Pocahontavatar – the mash-up trailer of Pocahontas and Avatar. Kills me everytime I watch it!

    Jessica Simpson has failed at everything she has tried including her music career, film career, television career, marriage, and weight maintenance. She’s as dumb as they come and I have no doubt that she will come off as a dolt in this new venture. Sending Jessica Simpson on a mission of investigative journalism is like asking Fred Flintstone to address Congress about healthcare reform.

    I’m really looking forward to her new show, and hopefully it’ll really get the message across about what real beauty is. All the things that went down with Mayer, I think it’d be good to see something new and refreshing from her. She’s actually coming to NYC next week, 3/10 for a live performance and to give fans a chance to ask her questions. I think it’d be a great opportunity for anyone interested who’s in the area:

Ever wish you had a copy of a youtube video? Well now you can. Just keep the same file format but replace the “Y” in youtube with a “3.” Download away! For EX: =

    ~“Put It in a Love Song”Alicia Keys, Because spring-filled love affairs are on their way, Alicia reminds us how to send our love in a catchy beat. Here on out everyone shall be known as a first intial basis! “What up B?”

    I’m really happy for Jessica! She looks SO good and I’m really excited to see all of the great press she is getting for her new show on Vh1 “The Price of Beauty.”

    Did you guys see the official trailer?! “The Price of Beauty” premieres March 15 on Vh1 and I can’t wait!!!

    Did Jessica get fat on purpose? Since the mom jeans incident, Simpson’s PR staff has turned her into the face of fat America, a walking, talking (and eating) Dove commercial.
