Jessica Simpson On Set For New Fashion Reality Show
Jessica Simpson is returning to television with a new reality show, "Fashion Star." It will be shown on NBC, and Jessica will play the role of celebrity mentor to some future designers. Model Elle Macpherson will join her on the series. Sounds like another Project Runway wanna-be.
Go ahead and snicker....but Jessica Simpson is getting the last laugh.
The clothing empire she built, is already worth about $1 billion. And the blonde-haired Simpson is only 30-years-old. Plus, she's very busy planning a wedding to fiance Eric Johnson, launching a new fragrance, and putting together the new fall line of her clothing, shoes, and signature handbags.
She's been on the set of Fashion Star out in Los Angeles. Check out the photo snapped of her yesterday, wearing a sparkling mini dress.
NBC is excited to have the fashion businesswoman front a TV 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.
We are told, that so far, no launch date has been set for Jessica Simpson's, "Fashion Star.".
