Rev. Run’s Wisdom To Dads And Husbands Everywhere


The troubled marriage of Jon & Kate Gosselin of Jon & Kate Plus 8 has been the fodder of every tabloid in the country.  Who are these people? They’re a couple with eight kids; that’s a pair of twins (Cara Nicole and Madeline Kate), and sextuplets. The Gosselins have their own reality show on TLC, filming their daily life and such. But lately there is gossip that Jon and Kate are no longer the happy parents they once were.

Joseph “Rev. Run” Simmons, who has six kids himself (and that’s Vanessa, Angela, Jojo, Diggy, Russy and Miley), offered some wisdom to the Gosselins -and I’m sure for parents anywhere, too. Rev. Run told People magazine that he and Justine have avoided the troubles that now the Gosselins suffer by keeping their eyes on what they cherish.

“If you cherish your wife and kids, that’s where your energy goes. We’re not extremely ambitious to be these big stars. We hope to inspire people to see the value of being a family.”

Rev. Run and Justine are also romantics at heart.

“Justine woke up the other day and e-mailed me a letter about how much she loves me and how happy she is to be my lover and my friend.  Then we downloaded the song by Jason Mraz ‘Lucky to Be In Love with My Best Friend’ and we just listened to it all day in our bedroom.”

Aaawww… that’s sooo sweet!!  Wonder if their kids are as romantic as they are!



The Simmons are not trouble-free, though.  This season of Run’s House is probably going to be the most turbulent of all as we’ll get to see Rev. Run’s employ some tough love for Jojo.  Rev deliberately throws back the covers  when Jojo gets arrested due to possession of illegal substances:

“When JoJo goes through his situation, I bring the cameras in.  We’re going to take the fans through every tough time to show them how to pull together as a family.” Source

Rev. Run saw this as a learning experience for his family.  Talk about turning lemons into lemonade.

If you love the Simmons, you’re in love with the right family. On that note, remember Pastryheads: don’t miss Run’s House, Mondays at 10 pm on MTV.
