Reality television and hip-hop royalty Vanessa Simmons stepped into The Shade Room last December to let the world know she was “ready to stop smalling small.” The 39-year-old candidly explained the challenge of “snapping back” after giving birth to her nine-year-old daughter. She said, “Everyone seems to have the same online experience with the ‘snap-back’ body. And mine was just not coming… I wanted to stop playing small for myself and do something for myself without the fear of what other people would think.”
This decision led Simmons to undergo Sono Bello’s TriSculpt Micro-Laser Liposuction. Now, some months later, she’s sat down with TSR’s Senior Editor, Jadriena Solomon, to share an update with readers. In addition, Simmons is also shedding some light on the beauty regimen that keeps her looking as youthful as she did on the first season of her family’s MTV reality show, Run’s House.
Keep reading to hear about the beauty products and practices Simmons swears by, how she consistently builds confidence and teaches self-care to her young daughter, and whether she has any regrets about undergoing the liposuction procedure. Simmons also shares how she’s preparing for her 40th birthday and embracing getting older.
