Angela Simmons is the second daughter of Joseph Simmons, co-founder of the hip-hop group Run-DMC with former wife also named Vanessa, like their first daughter. Angela finished her studies in the Fashion High School of NYC, having an average grade of A. She then went on to the Fashion Institute of Technology while handling her own magazine, Angela's Rundown. She also has an executive title under the Word Up! Magazine. As seen on Run’s House, this became a challenge for her as she is still in school studying. Along with her elder sister, Vanessa, Angela opened a sneaker line named Pastry, which was inspired by their hip-hop dynasty, influenced by their fashion-involved relatives Russell and Kimora Lee Simmons, and their love for pastries and cute colors. The first collection of Pastry Sneakers is appropriately called Cake, which comprises of Strawberry Shortcake, Chocolate Mousse, Sprinkles, and Red Velvet which all literally look like cakes. Since the series ended, she continued her fashion pursuits and the business as well.
