Since leaving their family estate in New Jersey, Rev. Run's two oldest daughters, Vanessa and Angela Simmons, have now made a home all by their lonesome in Los Angeles in an exclusive apartment building that boast lush amenities such as a spa, a swimming pool and a courtyard. The sisters/BFFs say their father only approved of their new home because of its tight security. "My dad saw it and thought it was great. But his main concern was that we find a safe place to live," says Angela. Vanessa, who flew out to Los Angeles before Angela to find the apartment, says they have had a tough time decorating their new pad. "You don't realize how hard making a house into a home is until you're out on your own. And Angela and I are two different people. She's more fun and edgy--and I'm more classic. So it's hard to mesh the styles together, but we make it work."


With Tiffany Pollard’s new reality series in full swing, her die-hard fans are happy to see her back on television, doing what she does best—wreak havoc and create complete drama. Following her long stint on reality dating games, she says it’s time to move on, and thus decided to pack her bags and head to Hollywood, where she would like to take her dramatic skills to the next level and become a full-fledged actress. And, yes, mama Sister Patterson comes along for the ride...with her annoying-ass self. "On this show, I'm trying to follow my dream. I want to be an actress. This show is about the struggles I face and how awkward I get when I'm out of my element. I'm not used to rejection, so being told I'm not right for a part is difficult. So everybody's going to get a look at what I do from day to day, start to finish. But you also get to see me grow." You'll also get to see her out on the town and looking, if not for love then a good time, at least now that she and I Love New York 2 winner Tailor Made are no longer engaged. "He didn't support me in this venture. The actual breakup happened on the show. I was an intense moment, and you'll get to see it. Where one guy left off you know another one's gonna pick up.I don't stay down for long," New York says.

Anyhoo, with a new reality show comes a new home. In Touch caught up with Tiffany at her colorful and chic Hollywood abode. Of her new home, she says, 'When I walked in here the first time, I thought, 'Oh, my goodness. It was amazing." Yeah, yeah, Tiffany. Enjoy it while you can because chances are you'll be looking for a new home when this show wraps. Don't front. As if we couldn't tell, the room Tiffany spends most of her time in is her make-up room--peep the hideous hair pieces hung on her wall as well as slapped on her head--where she has the word 'Princess' emblazoned across one wall. "'I have a 'Princess' tattoo and it's been painted onto my wall in my makeup room. This is where I come to get my look together. This room is very important because I don't have my face on until I leave this chair."




Janet Jackson is set to launch her debut fashion line Pleasure Principle, an 18-piece line named after the hit single from Jackson's 1986 multiplatinum album Control, is designed to be comfortable for a range of sizes - 32A to 44G, and is crafted of mostly satin and lace. Items will be manufactured in China and will be in department stores by late this year or early 2009. Jackson and Australian lingerie designer Bruno Schiavi are currently in negotiations with major chains to carry the line; U.S. stores will be revealed in coming months, with releases in Australia, Japan and Europe to follow. Jackson said the combination of beauty and comfort was the primary driver for the designs, though affordability was also paramount. Price points for the bra and underwear pieces are all under $40. "I hate when you've had on a bra all day long and you just can't wait to take it off - every woman has experienced that. A lot of lingerie tends to leave those marks and be uncomfortable. This line is about detail, fit and comfort as well as beauty and making women feel sexy. It's something for every woman, and I truly do mean that. It makes you feel sexy. I had so much fun designing this," Jackson says.

The singer first unveiled plans for the line in June at the Versace men's wear show in Milan in June, right around the time Jackson and longtime boyfriend, record producer Jermaine Dupri, said they're planning to start a family after the latest tour ends. Jackson said the lingerie line is "definitely" a good jumping-off point for future fashion endeavors.

And presumably there will be no wardrobe malfunctions.
