Vanessa Simmons Makes Her Comedic Acting Debut In New Web Series


Vanessa Simmons and her kooky "Mixed" parents.

Vanessa Simmons has had her hands full since the birth of her baby girl last month, but she recently took a brief break from mommyhood to get back to business. Hey, Angela's not the only "Daddy's Girl" to inherit the workhorse gene!

Vanessa shared with fans on Instagram that she's been working on a new web series called "Mixed," and gave a bit of an insight into her character. "Meet Samantha Hoffman a Conservative gal who has grown up in a Liberal Home whose just trying to live life being #Mixed," she captioned under a clip from the trailer. The comedic role is a new direction for the 30-year-old actress, who's typically taken on more dramatic gigs in the past, but if living inside "Run's House" is any indication, we think her character's less-than-conventional family shouldn't be too much of a stretch. Anyone else's dad tweet inspiration from a tub?

The first two episodes are available on Picture Day Studios' YouTube Channel, but we've shared Episode 1 with y'all below. Check it out, and let us know your thoughts on Vanessa's new venture!
