Who's house? Perhaps not Rev. Run's house anymore.  Joseph Simmons, former Run-DMC member and star of the MTV reality series Run's House, has re-listed his suburban New Jersey house for $5.2 million, a 6 percent price cut from their previous offer.

The 8,500-square-foot Saddle River mansion, which includes six bedrooms, a lagoon style pool, a hot tub, a movie theater, a recording studio and an indoor half-basketball court, has been a familiar site to fans of Run's House since 2005 given that the house serves as the backdrop for the MTV program.  But because the house has been re-listed, the sixth season of Run's House may have to film elsewhere.

This isn't the first time Joseph Simmons, also known as Rev. Run, put his house up for sale.  He and his wife Justine Simmons purchased the home in 2003 for $1.6 million and decided to sell the property in 2005.  At the time, they were asking $5.3 million for the home, which is somewhat overpriced.  Last year, they decided to sell the mansion for $5.5 million after Justine's renovations.

The Run's House couple are reportedly undecided if they'll remain in the Saddle Creek, New Jersey area, while MTV said that it's too early to talk about a sixth season.

Meanwhile, fans can catch Rev. Run and the rest of his family, as well as their New Jersey manor, on the fifth season of Run's House every Wednesday at 10pm on MTV.  On tonight's episode entitled “Age Against the Machine,” a manuscript of Rev. Run and Justine's book causes conflict among the children.  As for Diggy Simmons, he pitches his idea for a clothing line.

The fifth season of Run's House premiered on July 16, serving as lead in to Buzzin', MTV's comedy reality series starring music artist Shwayze, his best pal and producer Cisco Adler, their partner in crime, tour manager Warren Gumpel and their manager head of Suretone Records, Jordan Schur.
