Uncle Sam is Looking for Vanessa and Angela Simmons

Looks like the daughters of Run-DMC beat master Rev. Run  owe Uncle Sam a bit of dough. 

Vanessa and Angela Simmons, made famous by four seasons of “Run’s House” on MTV, owe nearly a half million dollars in back taxes, according to the Detroit News’ Tax Watchdog column.
Angela Simmons, 24, owes a whopping $225,910 based on liens filed by Uncle Sam in New York and by state officials in Sacramento, Calif., the newspaper reported.
Vanessa, 28, is behind to the tune of $224,568 according to similar filings, Tax Watchdog said.
A publicist for the hip-hop princesses did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The sisters recently told Jet magazine they hoped to turn their Pastry Footwear line into a fashion empire after studying the success of the Phat Farm and Baby Phat lines launched by their uncle Russell Simmons and his ex-wife Kimora Lee.
They called their reality TV fame a mixed blessing.
“The best is being able to inspire young people who look up to us to star their own business. The negative is feeling like you’re always being judged,” Angela Simmons told Jet.
