Jessica Simpson “Fired Up” to Show “Fattening Hut” Visit


Ready for Jessica Simpson's return to reality TV? She sure is!

"I'm so fired up for everyone to see what my friends and I discovered the last 4 months!!!" Simpson, 29, Tweeted on Thursday.

She linked to VH1's page for her new series The Price of Beauty, in which she travels the world  — along with friends Cacee Cobb and Ken Paves — on a quest to see "what defines beauty" for women around the world.

Her stops include a "fattening hut" in Uganda. Her dad Joe Simpson explained to "In Uganda, fat is beautiful. So the bigger you are, the more beautiful you are. [Jessica] was with a girl who had been in a hut preparing for her wedding for two months and 25 days on a 5,000 calorie-a-day diet."

The star also munched on fried cockroaches (the bugs are reportedly hair-healthy) and walked a couture runway in Paris.

The show debuts March 15. Simpson will tout the series on The Oprah Winfrey Show March 3.
