A representative for Jessica Simpson has confirmed that she is in talks with CMT to star in a special and not reality show.

While words are mounting that Jessica Simpson is about to make a comeback into the small screen, eying a CMT reality show, it has been confirmed that the actress-singer will star in a special instead.

Is close to completing her first country album, Jess' daddy/manager, Joe Simpson, told Entertainment Weekly that in addition to her music effort his daughter also has her eye on a deal for an unscripted CMT show, which would mark her second stab at reality TV.

"With Newlyweds, she let everyone into her world," Entertainment Weekly quoted the older Simpson as saying. "Then she had to shut the world out. Now she can open it up again so people can see, here's a girl struggling with self-esteem and finding her way. Country music is about storytelling, after all."

Set the record straight on Jess' possible deal with CMT, a representative for her has confirmed that the deal actually is for a special, not reality show, which will chronicle Jess' life as she records her upcoming country album.

"Jessica is finishing her country album in Nashville. They're in talks with CMT for a special timed to air when the album is released, but there's no truth whatsoever to there being a reality show," a representative for Jess told US Weekly. A CMT representative, meanwhile, claimed "We have had exploratory talks with Jessica's camp, but nothing has been confirmed or signed."

As for her country album, Jess has enlisted some most respected names in the industry to lend a hand, naming some are Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson, and Charley Pride. In hand producing are John Shanks, who's worked with Sheryl Crow and Kelly Clarkson, and Brett James, a cowriter on Carrie Underwood's single "Jesus Take the Wheel."
