They say the first year of marriage is the hardest, and now we'll have video proof: In April, MTV cameras will begin following every move of recently wed pop stars Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson in preparation for a new reality show about the young couple.

''It's a look into the lives of Jessica and I -- our daily life and our professional life,'' says 98° singer Lachey, who had some reservations about doing the show. ''It's definitely an adjustment I'm going to have to make. There's going to have to be a line drawn -- what we're willing to have the audience see.''

Simpson seems far more enthusiastic about the project, which she believes will debut in August (MTV declined to comment). ''It's going to be awesome! People are going to get to see us as a couple -- how normal we are and how normal we're not. We're honeymooners, so we're thinking about calling it either 'The Newlyweds' or 'The Honeymooners.''' Um, sweetie, that last title was taken in 1955.
