US Weekly announced Jessica Simpson’s ‘Fashion Star‘ has gone “out of fashion”, being canceled after just two seasons, as NBC entertainment president Bob Greenblatt confirmed during the summer TCA press tour on Saturday, July 27. The fashion competition, which also starred Nicole Richie and John Varvatos, featured a group of aspiring designers competing for a chance to have their designs sold in Macy’s, Saks and Express stores throughout the country, according to E! Online. Refinery 29 explains that after losing Elle Macpherson as judge and H&M as a retail partner, ‘Fashion Star‘ faced more trials when the crew went on strike just as the second season began filming.
An obvious decline with May’s season finale viewers, Refinery 29 speculates ‘Fashion Star‘ cancellation may be due to NBC demoting the show from Tuesday nights to Fridays. With new host Louise Roe, MSN reports on average, the show rated an anemic 0.7 in the advertiser-coveted adults 18-49 demographic and 2.76 million total viewers. In comparision, last season’s finale scored a 1.6 rating and 4.81 million total viewers.
Where do stars of ‘Fashion Star’ go from here? Former judge Nicole Richie, who US Weekly says designs both clothing and jewelry, will continue with ‘Candidly Nicole‘, her AOL reality series. EnStarz ensures us Richie will be busy with her newly released House of Harlow collection, announced via E! Online Monday. Contactmusic.com says it’s probably not horrible news for Jessica Simpson, who is busy juggling various commitments, having just given birth in June to son Ace Knute Johnson. Head of her own successful brand, US Magazine adds Simpson recently unveiled her Fall 2013 fashion campaign. Louise Roe has a new workout video as released by E! Online, with simple moves you can do at home. E! Online reports Roe‘s blog saying she tends to skip workouts when filming on location, blaming early starts and lack of gym equipment in her hotel, until meeting personal trainer Ashley Borden. No new plans announced for designer John Varvatos.
