The Price of Beauty

Ok guys. Make me feel better. Am I the only one that watched Jessica Simpson's new show The Price of Beauty?

I used to be a HUGE Jessica Simpson fan during her "Newlywed" days with Nick Lachey. I was so disappointed when they divorced I haven't paid any attention to anything she or Nick have been involved in since. I just happened to be flipping through tonight after 20/20's Inside the Bachelor and saw that the series premiere was on.

Seriously. I LOVE this show. This show had laughing until I cried when she and her friends ate the "fried worms" that the Thai people believe to be good for their skin. Their gagging, over dramatic facial expressions had me nearly falling off my couch.

This show also really tugged at my heartstrings a bit too. It showed a Thai woman that went too far for beauty in her country, and resulted with a horrific skin condition. It was definitely sad to see the reality of the emphasis that all cultures put on external beauty, and the things many women will go through to achieve that.

I can't wait until next week's episode! Tell me, did any of you watch?

I knew that it was going to come on, but didn't know when. I'm upset that I missed it! I'll have to catch up for next week.
