NBC has ordered a presentation (not quite a pilot) starring Jessica Simpson. That’s right, she’s getting her own show and she’ll be playing herself. They want to make it very “Curb Your Enthusiasm” like…so she’ll be Jessica Simpson playing Jessica Simpson. Because let’s face it, Jessica playing someone else, is still Jessica Simpson. I’m glad they’ve made it easy for her.
The show is supposed to be based on her life. I imagine it will entail: Jessica with her beauty team, with her fiancé, her kid, being pregnant, being a spokesperson for Weight Watchers, her clothing line, dealing with her sister, dealing with manager dad, and of course all of her blonde hair.
Let’s hope the fake Jessica Simpson is funnier than the real one.
The good news is that her sister will do a fine job playing a version of herself…she did it her whole music career. Thank you SNL for that gem!
