It all goes on until her recent appearance in the web series “Mixed”.

Besides acting: Apart from being a loveable actress, Vanessa started a business with her sister Angela Simons.

With sister Vanessa, she designs and runs the shoe brand.

As of 2016 she stars in the reality television program Growing Up Hip Hop, which she executive produces and stars in with Romeo Miller.

Other cast members include: TJ Mizell, Kristinia De Barge, Boogie Dash and Egypt Criss.

She died shortly after being born reportedly due to omphalocele, a birth defect that caused her organs to grow outside her body.

The Simmons family decided to allow camera crews to be in the hospital room as they broke the news to their children.

Vanessa did not approve that her father would tag along with her, during the photo shoot, and instead of going with him, she went with her sister Angela. Not so long after that which comes with absolutely no surprise, Vanessa decided to expand her's and Angela's business by starting her own lingerie line.

At first, she launched a very sexy collection and called it "Rose by Vanessa Jean".

During the time from 2005 till 2009, her family starred in the MTV series called "Run's house".

She also contributed in so many charities, some of which are "The children's miracle network hospital" and "The reality of fashion, the reality of Aids".

Angela was the editor for Angela's Rundown, a monthly mini magazine targeted for youths of ages 14–19 which covers teen topics, style, music, and fashion that was distributed within Word Up! The magazine also features fashion tips and in-depth celebrity "ugly duckling" interviews. She attended Fashion Institute of Technology for one year before dropping out to be a businesswoman.

While dating rapper Bow Wow, she was featured in the music video for his single, Shortie Like Mine.

They were both designers, she and her sister, and they both decided to launch their own shoe brand “Pastry”.
