The last time we saw her on reality TV was when she was still married to Nick Lachey on The Newlyweds. Who could forget her “I don’t eat buffalo” and “Is this chicken or tuna” quips?
Five years and X number of ex-boyfriends later, the 29-year-old singer/actress is back for a solo project: The Price of Beauty.
The reality TV show debuted last Monday on VH1 and is produced by RDF USA (Wife Swap, Secret Millionaire). The more mature Jessica Simpson—after spending a year being ridiculed in tabloids for her weight—is eager to discover beauty customs in other countries.
In the premiere, she and her best friend CaCee Cobb and hairstylist Ken Paves visited Thailand, where they met the Karen tribe and a woman who destroyed her skin with bleaching. The next episodes will take them to other countries such as Japan, Brazil, and India, where they will meet everyday women and examine their views, traditions, and practices on beauty.
And yes, you will still hear her trademark quips and blonde moments. During the Thai massage, Jessica remarked: “I hope I don’t pass gas.”
