Jessica Simpson will be on reality show 'Fashion Star'

NBC's upcoming Fashion Star features Jess as mentor to aspiring designers as they compete for a contract to launch their own brand, the AP reports. Elle MacPherson will be the host, but Simpson actually seems to be the more qualified for her role, given her experience with 22 product categories' worth of clothing and accessories.

"NBC is delighted to work with singer, designer, actress and pop culture icon Jessica Simpson," said Paul Telegdy, NBC and Universal Media Studios executive vice president. "With an almost billion-dollar lifestyle brand under her belt she is sure to be an excellent mentor to our up-and-coming designers." Just don't ask her about Nick Lachey.
