Jessica Simpson’s schedule is getting even busier now that she’s co-hosting the Teen Choice awards.

The eighth annual special will air live Aug. 20 on Fox (8 p.m. ET). Her co-host will be announced at a later date, Fox said Tuesday.

At “Teen Choice 2006,” Simpson is nominated for choice movie breakout performance for her role as Daisy Duke in “The Dukes of Hazzard,” choice red carpet fashion icon and choice hottie.

In the youth-centric ceremony, teen-friendly stars of film, television, music, sports and fashion win surfboard awards.

Voters can cast their ballots until Aug. 11 on the Web sites Teenpeople.com, MySpace.com, Ign.com and Fox.com.

Simpson, 26, stars in the comedy “Employee of the Month,” which opens Sept. 15. Her new album, “A Public Affair,” debuts Aug. 29.

She and Nick Lachey, who co-starred in the MTV reality show “Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica,” recently divorced after three years of marriage.
