Jessica Simpson Returns to Reality TV

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Reality, NBC, Announcements, News,

Jessica SimpsonNow that she's raking in millions from her clothing and accessories empire, Jessica Simpson is returning to reality television to display her fashion prowress.

While she has been off the air since last year's VH1 show The Price of Beauty, Simpson is now confirmed as a celebrity mentor on upcoming NBC show Fashion Star. The singer will team up with supermodel host Elle Macpherson to guide aspiring fashion designers in this Project Runway-esque series.

"With an almost billion-dollar lifestyle brand under her belt she is sure to be an excellent mentor to our up-and-coming designers," said Paul Telegdy, NBC and Universal Media Studios executive vice president.

Can the pop star-turned-entrepreneur help aspiring creatives without her own team of designers and business partners?

Jessica Simpson to Join Simon Cowell’s X Factor?

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Music, Prime Time, Reality, FOX, Gossip, Rumors,

Jessica SimpsonWho’s going to join Simon Cowell on The X Factor’s juding panel? Speculation has been running rampant, but sources are currently citing Jessica Simpson as a front-runner. In the past, Cowell has worked well with somewhat ditzy chicks, so we think this could be seriously great.

Rumors have surrounded the show for months. Katy Perry, Mariah Carey and many other famous names have been tossed out there, and right now it’s anybody’s guess who Simon Cowell will pick.

The X Factor will appear on FOX in the fall, where it won’t interfere with the 100-pound reality gorilla American Idol.

UPDATE: DeGeneres Leaves American Idol, More Changes Possibly Coming

Ellen DeGeneres

UPDATE: No announcements are expected from FOX on Monday.
UPDATE: Jennifer Lopez has reportedly closed a deal to be one of the new judges.

Will it be Chris Isaak or Harry Connick Jr. on American Idol next season? Could it be Isaak and Connick? Or how about this: Isaak, Connick and Jessica Simpson?

These all could be very real scenarios as rumors about a total show makeover grow.

Prior to this week, Idol chatter had primarily been focused on Simon Cowell’s replacement. Then former executive producer Nigel Lythgoe came back into the picture. Then Ellen DeGeneres announced her departure.

First Look: Jessica Simpson on Entourage

(Warning: NSFW language ahead.)

I never thought I would find myself saying this, but Jessica Simpson does a lot better in this cameo than I ever imagined she would.

Granted, I expected very little. And really - how hard could it possibly be to call Ari Gold (Jeremy Piven) an “a**hole”?

TV Talk: Alterations for Price of Beauty, Ratings Drops for Late Night Programs

Description-How apropos. Jessica Simpson’s The Price of Beauty will need to undergo alterations before returning. A new season will likely focus more on makeovers and less on travel.

-Will Celebrity Rehab net a former tennis star? The reality series is reportedly interested in nabbing Jennifer Capriati, who was hospitalized for an accidental drug overdose last month.

-The summer has not been kind to Jay Leno or David Letterman. The Tonight Show recently had its smallest audience since 1992. The Late Show had its lowest since 1993.

-Speaking of late night, TLC is about to introduce a new program titled Strange Sex. The six-part series profiling “mysterious conditions, unusual fetishes and the kinky science behind sexual attraction” debuts July 18.

Jessica Simpson, John Mayer and Jennifer Aniston

George Stephanopoulos could have a very interesting roundtable on his hands.

Tomorrow morning on GMA, the show will welcome two names quite familiar to singer : Jennifer Aniston and Jessica Simpson.

The two women - exes John referenced in Mayer’s recent Playboy interview - will be appearing to promote their individual projects. Simpson will talk about Monday night’s debut of The Price of Beauty, her new reality series for VH1. Meanwhile, Aniston will discuss The Bounty Hunter, her new movie with Gerard Butler.

Will these ladies have to share a green room? Will Robin Roberts be questioning them both about John? This is exactly the kind of potential awkwardness that helps get me up on a Monday morning!

Jessica Simpson Twitter

“who writes this crap?” Jessica Simpson recently demanded of her Twitter-reading audience, after noting that “CW catching up on MP.” That stands for Melrose Place, the show which recently fired Jess’ little sister Ashlee (and after they pimped her out as their main promo, too).

“i have had bad scripts to work with, but this?thank God my sister is amazing and got you some press.” Simpson continued to fire away.

Jessica Simpson’s Return to Reality

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Prime Time, Reality, Cable, MTV, Gossip, Rumors,

Jessica Simpson will soon return to the MTV family. The songstress is scheduled to start filming for a VH1 reality series that focuses on being beautiful. The singer enjoyed four seasons several years ago with Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica, a show which centered around Simpson and her then-husband Nick Lachey.

But now, she’ll be leading the cast all on her own. The Price of Beauty will give us a traveling Simpson, who tours the globe to chat with regular women as well as more well-known female personalities who belong to the beauty industry. She’ll look at fashions and explore beauty regimes, such as dieting fads. Filming is supposed to begin next month.

Jessica Simpsons’ Live Country Performance on The View

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Daytime, Music, Talk Shows, ABC, Gossip, Video,

Jessica SimpsonWhen I first heard Jessica Simpson’s newest single back in May, I said the singer should probably stick with country music. (When compared to the fluff she had been attempting before, it really seems to be the style best suited for her.)

Now after seeing her perform ‘Come On Over’ live on (you can watch that clip after the jump), I would like to offer Simpson just one more piece of advice: don’t ever let people see you sing.

One of the many things that has always bothered me about Jessica - aside from her love of the Dallas Cowboys - is her freaky facial distortions. Sadly, I’ve discovered her painful expressions (and general inability to move) will accompany her regardless of the genre she’s working in.
