The show is said to be based on her life ... which is apparently funny.

Nick Bakay (Paul Blart: Mall Cop, Zookeeper and 'Til Death) will pen the script and executive produce alongside Electus' Ben Silverman and Jess' dad, Joe Simpson.

"I am so excited to work with Ben and NBC again," Jessica said. "I often find myself thinking that no one could ever make up the things that actually happen in my life."

Joining fellow fashionista Jessica Simpson, Nicole Richie is set to offer up some of her design expertise as a celebrity mentor on NBC's Fashion Star.

Nicole has her own clothing line, Winter Kate (her daughter Harlow's two middle names), so she certainly brings experience to the program.

Elle MacPherson will handle hosting duties on Fashion Star.

Fashion Star is slated to debut later this year.

"Jessica, Nicole, John and Elle make the most exciting team we have ever worked with on a reality TV show and we are thrilled to feature such an extraordinary group of mentors and designers," executive producer Ben Silverman said.

Although she helms a fashion empire of sorts, mom of two Richie says her own personal style is much less thought out than you'd think.

Jessica Simpson's got a new fiance (Eric Johnson) and now a new job - as a celebrity mentor on NBC's Fashion Star. Yep, that's a real show.

The 30-year-old's singing career has petered out and her acting career never really took off, but her fashion line is remarkably successful.

With a brand worth an estimated $750 million in 35 countries, Simpson will join Elle MacPherson in a search for the next big fashion brand.

"NBC is delighted to work with singer, designer, actress and pop culture icon Jessica Simpson," the network said in a statement.

"With an almost billion dollar lifestyle brand under her belt she is sure to be an excellent mentor to our up-and-coming designers."

"I'm in the workroom in [L.A.'s] Westwood a few times a week from 11 to 7 at night," says Simpson of her chic but affordable line.

"Nothing goes out without me seeing it or my mom [Tina Simpson, Jess' co-creative director] seeing it," says the former Nick Lachey spouse.

Fashion Star's premiere date is TBA.

Confirming a previous report, Jessica Simpson will headline a new reality show called The Price of Beauty, in which the singer will travels around the world in search of the kinds of things people find beautiful and why, VH1 announced.

Asked to do a show about true beauty, Simpson - who endured some solid bullying in January for performing live after letting herself go / squeezing that a$$ into a pair of unflattering mom jeans - said she was "immediately intrigued."

"I have always believed that beauty comes from within and confidence will always make a woman beautiful, but I know how much pressure some women put on themselves to look perfect," Joe Simpson's cash cow said in a statement.

"I am looking forward to discovering how beauty is perceived in different cultures and participating in the crazy things people do to feel beautiful. I know we will all learn so much on this journey and I am so excited that VH1 is coming along."

Jessica Simpson and her girls are headed back to TV.

Added Jeff Olde, EVP, VH1 Original Programming & Production: "Perhaps more than any other pop culture figure on the radar today, Jessica Simpson has been the target of our obsession with beauty on both sides of the equation."

"She is a woman who can set trends and create firestorms with a single photo. We could not be more thrilled that Jessica gets to take control of that conversation and take a look at the idea of beauty through her unique, unfiltered lens."

We're excited to listen to her read cue cards and perform stupid stunts, too. Gosh, this sounds like a slam-dunk. Way to go, VH1 production department!

Shooting begins in mid-July, with the show airing sometime next year. The singer and her pimp, father Joe Simpson, will serve as executive producers.

Jessica Simpson Quotes

Jessica Simpson [on her sister and Pete Wentz]

It’s fun to do a small film that might be released to DVD not because it’s a horrible film, but because it’s an independent film. For people to say Employee of the Month was a flop is ludicrous. We made the money back–that’s not a flop. For people to say The Dukes of Hazzard was a flop–it opened to $30 million! If these movies are flops, why would I still make them?
