LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Six years after she became a breakout reality TV star with MTV's "Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica," Jessica Simpson is returning to MTV Networks for a VH1 series targeted for a 2010 launch.

"The Price of Beauty" will feature Simpson traveling the world to meet regular women as well as some local pop culture icons. Simpson will study local fashions, dietary fads and beauty regimes and even participate in some of the extreme practices she discovers.

"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," said Simpson, who has gotten a lot of attention for her new full figure which she has fully embraced.

Shooting is set to begin in mid-July.
