The oldest Simmons sister is apparently branching out from design to acting. Taking to the stage is a mistake for most reality show celebrities. But apparently Vanessa is good — like really good.
Her director Dominga Martin had this to say about her starring role in her new film My First Loves:
“I believe she is this generation’s Diahann Caroll or Dorothy Dandridge. She has range; she’s classy, FRESH and has a quiet strength. She is the image of the character I created in my head. I was searching for someone fresh faced and untainted and Vanessa Simmons is everything I was looking for. She’s got next! I can’t wait to see her blossom and bring this role to life.”
