Now two members of the Simmons dynasty are making another money-making announcement.

Vanessa and Angela Simmons have formed a partnership with August Accessories.

The company will design, manufacture, and sell the new Pastry Accessories line.

According to a statement, the girls will be a major part of the design and creation of the accessories, which arrive in stores fall 2009.

NICKELODEON JEWELRY BOX

Russell Simmons is launching a pretty interesting collection.

It’s SpongeBob SquarePants in bling!

Word on the streets is that Simmons Jewelry Co. and Nickelodeon are creating a fine-jewelry and watch line -all inspired by SpongeBob.

Apparently, it’s been 10 years since the cartoon character has been around–and this is how they’re commemorating it.

The entire retail collection will be made of enamel, gold, silver, and diamonds under Simmons’ design direction.

I hope this goes well for ya, Russell!

If you see Simon Cowell’s and Baby Phat founder Kimora Lee Simmons’ images in the neighborhood, it could be PETA’s brand-new Dog Doc Animal Birth Control (ABC) bus.

Emblazoned with the tagline “Simon Says: Get Your Dogs and Cats ‘Fixed,'” the clinic offers sterilizations, basic exams, fecal tests, skin scrapes, and tests for parvovirus, FIV, feline leukemia, and heartworms for minimal costs.

This follows Kimora’s bare-it-all “Be Your Dog’s Angel” ad, which urges people to take better care of their dogs. 

Kimora is on it!

The Queen of Fabulosity has inked an exciting deal with Steve Madden.

Under the new partnership, KLS will design, manufacture, market and distribute a collection of footwear and accessories for the Fabulosity brand with Steve Madden.

With Kimora as director, the collection will include women’s footwear, handbags, belts, small leather goods, and cosmetic bags for young fashionistas.

Any thoughts on where we’ll be able to buy them?

You guessed it!

The new line will be at JC Penney retail stores beginning in early 2009.
