Attention all young people planning to be married: Do you think that you and your spouse-to-be are the next Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey?We're not asking whether you sing. Actually, we're not asking at all: MTV is. The music video network is on the lookout for two new fish to place in its marital fishbowl. Recording star Simpson and her ex-hubbie, formerly of the boy band 98 Degrees, entertained viewers for four seasons as the stars of the unscripted "Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica," which was canceled in 2005.
Now the network wants to revive the concept, but ditch its celebrity component. If you're about to become a Mr. or Mrs., and you don't mind inviting MTV's worldwide audience along for the ride, then you and your significant other might be the stars-in-waiting of "True Life: I'm a Newlywed."
