Jessica Simpson is making the rounds to pitch a new reality show. The premise of ‘The Price of Beauty’ is for Jess to travel the US and beyond in search of how people around the world define beautiful and the crazy stuff they do to try to achieve it.
I know this show! It’s called ‘Vanity Insanity.’ R&B singer Deborah Cox hosted the TVtropolis series from 2006 to ’07.
Here’s the synopsis taken from their website…
‘Vanity Insanity’ is a compelling half hour documentary series that explores the phenomenon of real individuals who all share the common desire of transforming their current life situations by altering or attempting to alter their appearance.
The individuals and characters tell their distinctive stories in their own words as they attempt to find and define themselves from the inside and out.
We are all unique and yet, universally alike; each person featured in the series, has a different and complex story to tell. What is beauty and why do they strive to enhance their body and image to fit conventional ideals or radical new trends in appearance?
‘Vanity Insanity’ investigates and tells the intimate stories of people pushing the boundaries of innovative trends in expressing and changing the human facade. What is beauty? Who defines it? Who wants it? Why do we want it? And what price do we pay for it?
Maybe Jess should do a reality series on recycling ‘cuz she’s so good at it.
First, it was her hit single ‘I Think I’m In Love With You’ (with generous samples from John Mellencamp’s ‘Jack and Diane’). Then it was Berlin’s ‘Take My Breath Away’ followed by Daisy’s Dukes and Nancy Sinatra’s boots.
Then she had the ‘Blond Ambition’ to tackle a remake of ‘Working Girl,’ and publicly failed with the reworking of ‘Private Benjamin’ into ‘Major Movie Star.’
And I don’t even want to begin with the string of used and reused boyfriends she’s had and been had by.
