The media and fashion mogul hopes his new show ‘Running Russell Simmons’ will inspire those who tune in!

Russell Simmons, 53, is making a statement, and a big one at that. spoke to the DefJam founder at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in NYC Nov. 10, and he revealed that his new Oxygen show, Running Russell Simmons, won’t be like other reality shows.

“It’s about animal rights, gay rights and it’s about violence in the communities and all kinds of social and political causes that are overlooked,” Russell said. But the Phat Farm creator insisted the show won’t be all seriousness all the time, claiming that it will also cover “fashion and fun stuff too.”

The meditating millionaire hopes his show will “inspire people to meditate. There’s a lot of yoga, a lot of prayer.”  And don’t be surprised to see some familiar faces: his brother Rev Run and his ex-wife Kimora Lee Simmons (both no strangers to reality shows) are definitely primed to pop up on screen with Russell.

Running Russell Simmons airs Tuesday nights at 10 PM ET on the Oxygen Network!
