WHO’S HOUSE?!? The Sixth season premieres June 15, 2009, 10pm on MTV!

Run’s House is the house that hip-hop built, held together by the faith of the one and only Run DMC legend Joseph “Rev Run Simmons.


This MTV reality show stars the family of Joseph “Rev Run” Simmons, of the legendary hip-hop group Run DMC. Now filming the 5th season, we look forward to seeing more of Rev Run trying to strike that perfect balance between being a father, a reverend and an icon while keeping America’s first family of hip-hop securely grounded. From homework and sex education to a Las Vegas wedding and Run’s oldest daughter, Vanessa, appearing in lingerie in Maxim magazine, the family has proven it’s able to laugh at itself, and we laughed along with them.

While season 2 of Run’s House ended with the family looking forward to welcoming a new baby to the household, season 3 began with the unexpected loss of Rev Run and Justine’s newborn, Victoria Anne Simmons. Even in the face of such a tragedy, Run insisted that the cameras keep rolling, believing that his family’s heartbreak could inspire others in their times of need. Run, Justine and the rest of the Simmons family carried on despite their pain.

During season 3 of Run’s House, JoJo learned to drive, Russy learned the value of money, Vanessa and Angela launched their own line of shoes called Pastry Kicks, Rev Run donned a gorilla suit and Justine continued to heal. Plus, Vanessa got the acting role she had been dreaming of and JoJo prepared to go to college. But the biggest news of all was that Run and Justine decided they wanted to adopt a baby. And with change comes responsibility, bringing us to season 4 of the beloved reality show.

Season 4 of Run’s House finds the family at the beginning of a summer full of surprises. Rev Run’s daughters are anxious to fly the coop and move to Los Angeles, while Run and Justine prepare their home for a possible new addition to the family. JoJo is graduating from high school and on a quest for a record label deal, Diggy is starting to like girls and Russy is growing up fast. But when circumstances pull Angela and Vanessa from their New York City apartment, they land back at Run’s House for the summer, and Rev Run knows this could be the last time his entire family is under one roof. Last season, the Simmons clan had a year of extreme highs and lows, and now Rev Run hopes they can enjoy some of their best times together.

Season 5 which will premiere on July 16, 2008, will show how Vanessa and Angela are coping with the runaway success of their shoe brand Pastry, while balancing other commitments such as Vanessa’s two movie roles and Angela’s love life. With the adoption of Miley last season, Justine and the rest of the Simmons family are all adjusting to having a baby in the house. Meanwhile JoJo Simmons has been working on his debut album with his crew Team Blackout. Will he be able to live up to dad’s legacy?


Run’s House season six which will premier today, June 15, 2009 at 10 p.m. on MTV features the other side of the Simmons family.  Sure they are still the happy family we’ve known and loved, but as we already know, they faced quite a tough time when Jojo Simmons got arrested due to possession of illegal substance.


It’s great that MTV decided to show Rev. Run’s serious side in dealing with this matter.  How will the rest of the family deal with this widely-publicized case?


Vanessa and Angela are living the bicoastal lifestyle and they’re busy with their Pastry Shoes, other career pursuit and of course, their family.



Diggy and Russy turn out to be real fly guys,  and last but not least, Justine Simmons watches over baby Miley who’s growing so fast that we won’t believe that she was only a tiny baby on season five.  But there are a lot of fun times too, starting with the family vacation to Hawaii on the first episode.  Don’t miss it, girls.
