Jessica Simpson is Headed Back to Reality… TV, That Is!

No, she’s not going to star in another version of Newlyweds – but Jessica Simpson is headed back into the world of reality TV! Bringing her fashion expertise, Jessica is set to be a mentor on the new NBC reality show, Fashion Star.

E! Online reports that Jessica, who has a successful handbag and clothing line and is starting a new tween line with sis Ashlee, has made one billion dollars in the fashion industry. With her knowledge and expertise, she is joining the new reality show to teach others her secret as she serves as a mentor.

“Jessica Simpson has built an incredible fashion business and is a perfect mentor to our aspiring designers,” said Ben Silverman, whose company Electus will produce the show along with The Magical Elves and 5X5 Media.

Legendary model Elle McPherson will host the show, whose premise is to find an unknown designer and help fund the start of their own brand. The show will be taped in front of a live studio audience, and viewers at home will get the chance to buy the winning designs each week as they air.
