Brace yourself – Newlyweds 2.0 is thisclose to becoming a, well, reality.

As OK! first reported, Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz, who tied the knot May 17, are looking to pick up where Jessica and Nick Lachey left off with their hit MTV series – and they don’t care if it doesn’t end up on the music network!

“They are shopping it around TV stations, a source close to the couple tells OK!.

How desperate are they for boob tube fame?

“Pete and Ashlee have already filmed footage that they are showing in meetings,” the source adds.

And it seems like the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Remember Jessica’s infamous “Chicken of the Sea” moment? Well, it sounds like Ash, 23, wants her own addendum in reality show history.

“One scene is at a dinner and everyone is toasting to business ventures and important things like that,” the source says. “But when it came to Ashlee, she toast ‘to jewelry’ and Pete just shook his head.”
