Jessica Simpson gets back to reality

Jessica SimpsonRumor has it that, after many failed attempts at a movie career, Jessica Simpson is returning to the medium that made her famous: reality TV.
Simpson is reportedly in talks with TV networks to pitch a reality series about society’s scrutiny of women’s bodies. It comes as no surprise since Simpson has been under scrutiny in the past year about her own weight issues and her wardrobe choices during her concert performances while promoting her country album.
Apparently the reality program will follow Simpson and a friend as they set off on a road trip around the world in search of what people find beautiful and why. Rumor has that Simpson will even go as far as to try the shocking things women do to make themselves look beautiful.
The singer’s rep recently said, “Jessica is indeed working on a new show, but network details have not been finalized at this time.” Will you watch?

    No, I definitely will not watch. She doesn’t seem like a bad person to me, but I really don’t see any talent from her, I feel that the entertainment industry (mainstream entertainment at least! lol) is not the right industry for her.

    I will definitely give this a look…it is a fascinating topic and I feel women have been “body beauty scrutinized” for centuries, with no lightening up in today’s society as well. I would be interested in seeing the different cultures takes on women and their
    looks.

    not a reality show person really, but this I’d be interested to at least check out the first show to see if it contained worthwhile material…

    I’d rather watch the Tel Aviv weather channel! HAHAHA!!!

    I watched her & Nick, and it was funny…she portrayed herself as a major bimbo…and even though it was watched by many, I don’t think it was beneficial for her in the long term.

    Nancy, where do you come up with this stuff? I’m cracking up here! LMAO!!!
    Jo, agreed, women have always been scrutinized in this way, and I don’t ever expect that to change, unfortunately. One problem I see is that a lot of women really put themselves out there to specifically BE scrutinized that way. Now those are the women I consider to be insecure, for sure, the ones who seem to need to be looked at by men that way.
    I like reality shows, mainly Survivor and Idol, but I don’t think this is one I will be watching. I hate to admit it, but part of the reason may be that it is Jessica Simpson, I find her very hard to take seriously.

    Carol, agreed, it didn’t seem to win her any fans, or any work either, and now people (like me) do have a difficult time taking her seriously.

  7. Carol • May 27, 2009 @ 7:07 PM

    and it is not easy to switch your music from pop to county, that was bold, and good for her for trying it, but I don’t think that won her many medals either

  8. tributegirl • May 27, 2009 @ 7:12 PM

    I don’t think it won her any medals at all, and still hasn’t brought any new work her way. But yes, it was bold, I agree good for her for trying it.

    I think she would do so much better if her father was not her manager. He’s holding her career back.

  10. tributegirl • May 27, 2009 @ 7:57 PM

    Oh, actually I didn’t even know he was her manager. Is he Ashlee’s manager as well?

  11. Nancy • May 27, 2009 @ 8:00 PM

    He was, Ashley might have got rid of him though, because he paid all his attention to his little “angel” Jessica. Her career always came first before Ashley’s.

  12. tributegirl • May 27, 2009 @ 8:03 PM

    Wow, that would suck! And as much as I don’t really care much for either of them, I’d say Ashley (sorry about the earlier spelling!) has more talent!

  13. Nancy • May 27, 2009 @ 8:26 PM

    Actually, you spelled it right (Ashlee) and I was wrong. My daughter has ‘Ashley’ in her name.

    Guess I’m allowed to be wrong once in my life, eh? 😉

  14. Carol • May 27, 2009 @ 8:42 PM

    Yeah, she and Brit have somethings in common, like their fathers being very involved in their careers, managing. But for Brit, I think she is better off. Not sure about Jessica, don’t hear so much about her father.

  15. Anon • May 27, 2009 @ 8:45 PM

    I’ll have to pass on jessica as well. Can’t stomach any of the reality shows. Now if anyone wants to talk about House…now that’s my addiction. I’m hooked.

  16. tributegirl • May 28, 2009 @ 3:28 PM

    Well….ok, Nancy, you can be wrong just this one time! But that’s it!

  17. moondog • May 30, 2009 @ 3:52 PM

    ya dont do it again nancy!

  18. Nancy • May 30, 2009 @ 4:42 PM

    I’ll try to be a good little robot, LOL.

  19. tributegirl • May 30, 2009 @ 9:39 PM
