Jessica Simpson is a complete failure in everything that she touches, so of course VH1 would back up the truck for her new reality show. New York Post reports:
VH1 just found out how high “The Price of Beauty” can be. Jessica Simpson (above) is scheduled to start shooting the new show next week and travel to seven countries examining exotic beauty regimens. But VH1 isn’t happy with her budget. “To get her camera-ready each episode will cost $25,000,” said our source. “She insists on using her own hair, makeup and fashion stylists, who are more expensive than J.Lo’s.”
As you read that blockquote, please keep in mind that Jessica Simpson’s last two movies, Blonde Ambition (grossed $384 at the box office) and Private Valentine: Blonde and Dangerous (went straight to DVD) were complete failures. Also keep in mind that her last album, Do You Know, sold 65,000 copies in the first week then fell off the face of the Earth. And last month she got dumped a day before her birthday. VH1 would have a better chance making money if they spun straw into gold or bought some magic beans.
