RUN'S HOUSE NEWS: REV. RUN PUT'S 'RUN'S HOUSE' MANSION UP FOR SALE; WATCH/READ SEASON 4's PREMIERE PREVIEW (10.25.07)

***I UPPED THIS POST (WHICH I POSTED LAST WEEK) TO REMIND YOU ALL TO REMEMBER TO TUNE IN TO THE 4th SEASON PREMIERE OF 'RUN'S HOUSE,' WHICH AIRS TONIGHT AT 10 pm ON MTV***

I must be slipping because until I saw the preview last night, I had absolutely no idea that the fourth season of Run's House would premiere next Thursday night (October 25) at 10 pm on MTV. This show has got to be realest reality show I've seen in a long time. And that's rare. And I think that's also why people love it so much. Although MTV gets a hard time these days for not showing music videos, and giving a lot of air time to people who certainly aren't, or shouldn't be, role models (like My Super Sweet Sixteen) you have to give them credit for sticking with a show like Run's House that doesn't have a sexy hook. Run himself has proved himself as a capable and beloved patriarch, and is one of the most morally centered programs that MTV produces. It's just a show about a family. Simple. It's about time MTV does something right.

At Run's House the laughs, drama and excitement never seem to end. Rev. Run, (Joseph Simmons of Run-DMC), and his wife Justine continue to manage a very bustling household and keep the lives of their 5 children as normal as possible amid the extravagance of their surroundings. With the entire family back together again under one roof, life in the Simmons house is anything but normal. This season Rev. Run and Justine make a major decision on adopting a new baby and life for them may never be the same again.

Eldest sibling, Vanessa, 24, lands her first acting role on the day-time soap opera Guiding Light and finds that perfecting her craft is harder work than she thought. Angela, 20, sets her sights on expanding her current magazine insert into a bona-fide celebrity driven fashion/entertainment magazine. JoJo, 18, deals with everything from graduating high school, to hustling for a record deal, to developing deeper relationships with his dad and Uncle Russell (music/fashion mogul Russell Simmons).



AFTER THE JUMP, READ MORE ON WHAT'S IN STORE FOR DIGGY & RUSSY FOR THE NEW SEASON; PLUS DETAILS ON THE SALE OF THE FAMILY'S HOME.

As the coolest tween-ager on television, Diggy, 12, is fast becoming a ladies man but Rev. Run manages to keep him grounded. And Russy, 11, might just be ready to cast his love for video games aside for a new interest girls!

In related news, Rev. Run (real name Joseph Simmons) has put the family's Saddle Creek, New Jersey mansion up for sale for a cool $5.5 million. I'm not surprised by this at all. Reality show stars have a tendency to sale their homes after it's been seen by everyone and their mama on national television. Coincidentally, Nick (Lachey) and Jessica (Simpson), as well as Travis Barker and his estranged wife, Shanna, did the same thing.

The Simmons' estate, which has been on the market for several months, contains six bedrooms and five bath rooms. It also has a basketball court, swimming pool, recording studio and a movie theater. Not a bad place to grow up.

For you die hard fans, Run's House seasons are out on DVD. It'll make a great stocking stuffer.

over 1 yr later & the house is still 4 sale. i've read reports they dont really want to sell, they're just doing this 4 publicity.

the recession ddin start til august 08 but it too could be affecting this mansion from being sold.

afterall since van & ang (stupidly) live in Cali, there is an extra room .their new baby has Ang's old room.

Van wasnts 2 act so she is in Cali, so I get that.

But Ang is in Calu 4 what? She claims she is a mag ediots but I dont c her mag anywhere. Im still in disbelief her parents let her rop out of school. Ang graduated w a 4.0 high school gpa only to not go to college. Van graduated from NY's St. John's Univ & I thnk Jojo enrolled in college.

I wonder if Russ Jr & Dan Jr & Miley wont go 2 college & cite Ang as their example.
