Vanessa Simmons

Fashion shows’ pregnant celebrity hosts

A few years ago, we blogged about how female film stars were losing out on film projects once producers discovered they were pregnant. That’s why it was refreshing to catch a broadcast of Project Runway’s All-Star featuring a very pregnant Alyssa Milano as a host on the latest season of that show. She hosted it last year as well.
The franchise is quite pregnant lady friendly as creator and original host Heidi Klum was also very pregnant during one past season of the general Project Runway fashion designer contest show.
We also noticed that another Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Vanessa Simmons started her gig on Project Runway Threads (the version for child-designers) right after giving birth to her daughter Ava Marie
 last February. 
It must be a thing with fashion shows because Kristin Cavallari starred in season one of the E!  show The Fabulist while she was expecting her second child. 
It’s all good news for the future of working pregnant moms in the industry. Well at least on the small screen.

Run’s House’ Vanessa Simmons Instagrams Belly photo

Instagram
Actress and reality TV star Vanessa Simmons  shared a photo of herself and her blossoming belly to her Instagram fans recently.
“First lunch meeting of 2013,” the MTV star from Run’s House  and Daddy’s Girls captioned the photo.
Simmons’ dad is Hip Hop legend Rev Run and uncle is business mogul Russell Simmons. She announced in September 2013 that she and  boyfriend Mike Wayans, son of veteran TV actor Damon Wayans are expecting their first child together. 
She’d been MIA for months due to extreme morning sickness. She told Essence.com that cherry-flavored Slurpees are her weakness. 
“Every time my mom calls me she asks, ‘Where’s Mike?’ and I’m like, ‘He’s at 7-Eleven,” she confessed. 
Simmons also noted that she’s not rushing down the aisle just yet.
“I don’t want to be a pregnant bride,” she told the site. “I wanna have a beautiful wedding, hopefully a destination wedding where I can show off my figure in a beautiful long flowing dress.”
