Who Is Tanice Amira? New Details On 'Run's House' Star JoJo Simmons' Wife

Congratulations are in order for the "Reverend Run," AKA Joseph Simmons, AKA one-half of the legendary hip hop duo Run-DMC. The rap legend has recently added to his ever-growing family when his son, JoJo Simmons, got married to his longtime love. But who is Tanice Amira,  JoJo Simmons' wife and Reverend Run's new daughter-in-law?

In 2005, the Reverend Run found a new "life" in front of the camera when Run's House debuted on MTV. In addition to introducing the Reverend, and his music, to a whole new generation of fans, Run's House introduced fans to a whole new set of family members in the Simmons clan. Vanessa Simmons, Angela Simmons, and Joseph Ward Simmons Jr. (known as "JoJo" to the family and to fans) were all given a career, of sorts, in front of the camera as Run's House lasted for six seasons. 

But now there's a new family member in the Simmons clan, so let's look at what we know about Tanice Amira:
