Rev Run’s oldest daughter is heading back to the small screen for Lifetime’s new fashion series, “Threads.”
According to reports, new mommy Vanessa Simmons will serve as a host on the fashion competition show, helping hopeful designers compete for the grad prize of $25,000 and a scholarship to FIDM.
Lifetime ordered eight episodes of “Threads,” which will also include appearances by “Project Runway” winner Christian Siriano, Seventeen magazine editors Gina Kelly and Jasmine Snow, and singer and actress Zendaya.
In related news, the network has another show in the works called “BAPS” — not to be confused with Halle Berry’s 1997 film by the same name. According to Lifetime, the series will follow an exclusive, privileged and affluent group of African-American friends from St. Louis.
“There is no shortage of conflict, humor and heart that comes along with being a part of this tight-knit clique, which includes, Anisha, Kristen, Gina, Jason, Riccarda and Brandon,” the press release reads. “Together, this group, whose dynamic can change from best friends to frenemies at the drop of a hat, attends St. Louis’ elite fashion shows, the symphony and charity events… but no occasion is conflict-free. Competing to be the most successful and most beautiful person in their circle is sure to bind and divide them, especially when Anisha’s boyfriend, Kendrick, and his niece, Rai-Rai are the anti-BAPs.”
