  • ATL White Guy

    Run DMC remix of Let’s Get Married playing in my mind. The world has changed when the order of things has changed from dating, marriage, kids, house to hooking up/casual dating, kids, playing house, breaking up, and maybe never a house. Out of wedlock kids is the normal now. Actually getting married first would be looked at as strange.

  • missmiami305

    good for him. he always seemed kinda troubled

  • YES I SAID IT…

    Yes she does favor his sister

  • SummerBaby

    He just always seemed like the type that could never get it together. I got some in my family ?

  • YES I SAID IT…

    I was thinking the same thing but thanks for sharing, U summed it up just about right. To get married first would be like the world is coming to an end but children are a blessing and I wish them nothing but the best and a happy healthy baby to come.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Congrats <3

  • ATL White Guy

    Kids are definitely a blessing, I know I love mines! Guess I’m just grumpy old white guy….not sure if the new norm is the right norm for kids. And definitely not knocking single parents, mothers or fathers, for doing their best.

  • MissyJ

    So Auntie ain’t wanna throw in that one of the couple 3 chirrens is adopted….

  • SummerBaby

    Surprised me too that she didn’t mention it.

  • YES I SAID IT…

    True I love mines too! 🙂

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Yeah thangs have changed … this is why I would never bring another child in this confusing world …. I fear for the child I haven’t even produced in my womb and my current child smh

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    Agreed. Kinda made me wonder who wrote this >.>

  • Ms.Capricorn101

    I strongly agree jenie even if by some miracle I did become pregnant again not without a ring.smh #lessonlearned

  • SpillyNillie

    Awww, I remember when JoJo was a lil annoying brother on Run’s House

  • Enoughsaid2020

    I’m glad you said it, because it looks just like her.
    Kind of creepy!

  • WHITTYwithWORDS

    HAHAHA…SO all of your kids just said fugg the “right way” we “fugging the right way”? I can dig it.

  • ATL White Guy

    And don’t forget, and the biracial baby! Oops, wrong story. But that somehow usually makes it in some how.

  • SummerBaby

    Exactly!

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Lesson learned ….. I will definitely never raise another child without being married …..

  • SummerBaby

    I read it twice, because it had me questioning myself ?

  • SpillyNillie

    I’m a single mother, and I was intending to get married first. But umm, sh*t happens…

  • SpillyNillie

    Amen

  • abby-o

    So

  • abby-o

    So Rev Run children can’t get married before they start making kids…i mean the father is a reverend

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    I mean that shyt …. too all the way live chile …. thank God that I’m doing the best now …. but to pop another out would make me a damn fool chile

  • ?Sugar&Spice?

    That’s his sister. eek!

  • Ms.Capricorn101

    Chile………

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    I said the same thing … kinda creepy

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Chile just said the same thing lol

  • Ms.Capricorn101

    Shyt…..I was a fool to get pregnant from a sorry ass fool

  • SpillyNillie

    A COMPLETE fool. Some mornings I want to sit on the toilet and cry. I do so much…i just want some HELP…an adult to talk to after 8:30 p.m. and no to mention…

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    Somebody throw up the bat signal if…. :pigsfly:

  • Enoughsaid2020

    The closer I look, its his sister. Is something being said here?

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Aye same here …. hell everyone plays a fool at some point …. but to continue to make that same choice over and over …. makes you an even bigger fool smh … Nerp … hell thinking bout getting tubes tied … at the time my doctor wouldn’t do it when I had my first … I should be of age now

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    awwww hell me too … hold ya head high hun …. but I will be damned if I make that same choice again …. in 2015 and years to come going forward

  • JustB

    So he wasn’t influenced by his dads sermons on sex b4 marriage…ok

  • ATL White Guy

    Sometimes sh*t does happen, I agree. But I think it’s just accepted as normal to have kids out of wedlock now days. You actually intending to get married first was probably out of today’s norm. At least you intended to.

  • SpillyNillie

    How old is your baby? I thought it got better with age but I think I liked it better at a year and younger

  • Ms.Capricorn101

    After the baby i finally woke-up and (we had a long history of being together)now he wanna “stalk” me.smh

  • ATL White Guy

    I salute all the strong women raising their kid(s) on their own. Too many men running around like rabid dogs and not taking care of their own.

  • MissyJ

    It’s in the details… the ghost writers always give themselves away

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Every single one of my exes have stalked me and some still do … including my child’s father …. obviously you weren’t the problem …. lol stay strong hun <3

  • WHITTYwithWORDS

    Well what’s normal about the divorce rate being 60%? I think what you are seeing is those who are married are failing and putting a negative spin on what marriage is especially in social media. So essentially maybe if married folks stayed married there wouldn’t be such a negative light on it; also people are living like today not thinking about the future….I personally will get married before my next child bc the person i’m with I can see them for life and I want that bond, I want his last name.. Folks today don’t want to work for love they want passion, the notebook or some shyt in a script…I want that first bit of hot mac and cheese love…filing, contentment, and satisfaction. But like @spillynillie:disqus shit happens and condoms get lost…lol

  • Ms.Capricorn101

    Lol. I just laugh at his ass. Now you wanna try & make it right? So all of a sudden you have became “mr.right” over night? #Takecare

  • Just Keya

    …..congrats….his face up top though….

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Remember folks always want what they can’t have lol remember that …

  • Just Keya

    Now he is the annoying wanna be rapper. *blows on tea*

  • Ms.Capricorn101

    Lol. But this was the same ninja that stayed complaining that i was too mean & never satisfied according to him.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Mines was the same … don’t fall for the manipulation hun … lol

  • MookieFly

    Sometimes you never know a dude needs a beard until they have one. And that girl does not look like Nessa. Every plywood colored females does not look alike

  • WHITTYwithWORDS

    Better than waiting 2 years and your married to try and resolve ‘OUR’ issue for our child…please take care…I don’t enough to try and NOT like you..its all in your head boo boo and you feeling some thangs.

  • http://theempirefiend.tumblr.com/ Bird

    I had checked out her IG several months ago. She seems like a really good girl with a good head on her shoulders. No thot pics of course. I just don’t get how these Simmons chirren got TWO married sets of parents, but they ain’t getting married. It ain’t supposed to happen like that is it?

  • Ms.Capricorn101

    Oh i don’t. That’s why he’s stalking me because he knows in his heart that I’ve finally had enough of the bullcrap I don’t even answer the door when he knocks & i changed my phone number.

  • ATL White Guy

    It’s always good to wish for the ideal and even if you fall short, you tried. Believe me I know all about condoms getting lost.

  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    New post, Dead Woman Walking.

  • SpillyNillie

    Thank you, ATL.

  • OvertheMississippi

    “If numbers continue to go down, roughly two-thirds of marriages will never involve divorce, according to data from Wolfers.”
    Where did you get your statistic?

  • Cal Monroe

    JoJo… she looks like your sister. lmao

  • WHITTYwithWORDS

    the rate is going down bc now less people are getting married, meaning less “new” marriages…its a catch 22…It’s going down but that’s not good either. I.E. it was high so people stop valuing it and stop doing it.

  • WHITTYwithWORDS

    FYI: I didn’t take offense to anything you stated. I find truth that people don’t value what it take to get married…no reason a 30 year old should be on her third marriage. The normal is divorce now, unfortunately.

  • Canary Red™

    Omg I thought she looked like Angela. But now that u said Vanessa, it does.

  • sunni_daze

    She kinda looks like his sisters.

  • nekkkyj

    Congrats to them

  • Satin Panther

    I take it back calling Jo-Jo Ug-Mug, he looks decent now. Congrats homie. Now what’s up with the youngest son? I saw a recent picture and he looks………………………….errrr………ummmmmmmm……………………..chit
    NEVERMIND.

  • Nix

    So none of the reverend kids learned marriage before carriage huh? So much for practice what you preach

  • Prettyreddbone?

    In moments that you feel that way I always tell women to listen to “Thanks for my child” by Cheryl Pepsi Riley.

  • http://yeuphonic.com @yeuphonic

    Last time he was in the blogs was because a transgendered woman exposed their relationship. I hope she’s not a beard a la mister cee’s wife. #messy

  • Ebony Starr

    I remember when JoJo went to Russell and said he wanted a line of sneakers. Russell told him that he should intern. A few episodes later Vanessa and Angela came to him with the same idea and he told them to present their ideas. JoJo went from being the only son to the forgotten middle child. He had it pretty rough. Even Vanessa beat him to the out of wedlock child!

  • Molly

    Wow, so strange how these young folk will lay down & make a baby but not put any effort N getting married?.

    Such a twisted world we live n.?

  • SpideySense

    None of the good reverend’s children have put the horse before the cart. Stereotypically rebellious I guess.

  • Queen Negus

    I thought I was the only being stalked????
    My cousin told me men don’t stalk women who puses ain’t good, she is being stalked too. She said it’s hereditary and get use to it???

  • OvertheMississippi

    Sorry, I missed your response to your source of stats. Please provide this “catch 22” info and link.

  • That’s Interesting

    Where’s Freud when you need him? That’s the first thing I thought!

  • barbeez

    Why would we care about yet another black baby being born OUT of wedlock. That makes two grandkids for Rev. Great job. Guess his kids didn’t get the message about marriage.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Chile every last one of my exes lol … some in jail some …… well could be dead now … I have no clue and don’t care ….. but yes….. all have stalked me and still do ….

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    It does get better she 9 … but I haven’t had baby daddy issues since she was 2 Bloop….. I’m too emotional for the fugg shyt … gave him a take care years ago …

  • Ms.Capricorn101

    Girl, what makes it even worse I’m being stalked by a crazy ass Pisces. Smh

  • BLOODBLOOD

    I always asked myself was jojo ugly #ss really rev.run son he look so different from the others ?

  • butchie4ever

    Where are all the people who are always on here and other blogs talking about how Jesus is coming soon and the world is coming to an end because of the gays???? Why aren’t they on here talking about how Rev. Run is an infidel for raising his children to be whores and whoremongers??? God’s word says no sex before marriage and these fake christians are going to bust hell open….

  • Sassy24

    Oh

  • Queen Negus

    Lol I know I am a Pisces. But my stalker ( who know involves his family members in his stalking) is a crazy azz Scorpio!!

  • Saywhatnow?

    Nobody is marrying. Nobody. Just having babies. Congrats…

  • 1/8

    Took the text right off my keyboard! The bastardization of America continues.

  • Ms.Capricorn101

    Please give me some clues/advise how to make Pisces man finally go away. I’ve tried cursing him out, telling him i don’t want him, not opening my door when he comes by & I’ve changed my phone number Nothing works. #help

  • Queen Negus

    Syhte same thing I am going thru with an Scopian except I moved out of town and he found me. Put him on Nignore (ni@@a I am going to ignore you)???
    I don’t speak to his family members who happened to stop by. I don’t open the door. My Nignore is working bc I haven’t spoken directly to him in months!;

  • eljjai

    Always the pastors kids that will be fast and loose.

  • ???

    Yes the world certainly has changed especially when said marriage includes outside people in the bedroom.

  • Fendi

    His gf looks like his sisters.

  • Full Monty

    I thought he was DL but congrats but why she looking like his sisters though??????

  • daniel barnes

    i wonder by him being a reverend. is he embarassed by non of his kids that has a child or about to have a child aren’t married.

  • ATL White Guy

    touche!

  • WHITTYwithWORDS

    Im not your teacher…look it up…Your internet clearly works…

  • http://olskoolblackflix.com Taco Juice

    I’on think Rev Run is 50. Run dmc came out in the early 80s and those dudes looked like they were pushing 30 back then.

  • PRiNCESSgIgI

    I do remember when he got caught kickin it with tranny?he was explainin away? /she just look like a chick not like his sister lol now that’s reachin?

  • Ebony McKinney

    She does look like vanessa …but I’ve never heard of Jojo having a job…. I use to hear of him being kidnapped by people… hope he can support the baby and their just not having a baby because they have time on their hands…I remember an episode of runs house where he was hanging with his uncle Russell.. and Russell was looking at home like ” you immature kid you… out of all the kids you’re the laziest one” Russell did not like Jojo because he had no work ethic…well not to his potential…. everyone has a niece or nephew, sister or brother that seems to not get it… and I hope they didn’t get pregnant because they believe this will mature them

  • Rene Edwards

    wow!

  • Ebony McKinney

    I just got through saying that Russell did not like Jojo and it showed! Jojo couldn’t do nothing good in Russells eyes…. I’m shocked vanessa had a baby out of wedlock especially because her baby is a Wayans..Simmons and Wayan together…those are two powerful namesakes….and Angela is still a Virgin ….wink wink! Am I lying to myself

  • JENNYJONES1

    ALL GROWN UP AND UNCLE RUN’S 2ND GRAND CHILD OUT OF WEDLOCK. I GUESS ANGELA IS HIS LAST HOPE OF A WEDDING AND BABY AFTERWARDS……..JENNY JONES!!!

  • BLOODBLOOD

    No he got the same mother as the girls

  • Jusstlookn2
