Ever since walking into the spotlight, Jojo, Angela and Vanessa Simmons have seen their celebrity and popularity steadily grow without even having to drop any kind of sex tapes (props).
Now with Growing Up Hip-Hop going four seasons strong and each one of the three getting their entrepreneur on, the Simmons siblings decided to check The Breakfast Club for a quick pow wow with Charlamagne Tha God and Angela Yee.
Opening up about their relationship with each other, Angela’s status with Romeo, and how they feel about Russell Simmons getting caught up in the #MeToo movement, the Simmons clan try to answer any and everything asked of them.
Here are the 8 things we learned from the Simmons siblings on The Breakfast Club.
1. Go-To Man
Jojo Simmons is the go to guy for advice as far as Angela and Vanessa go. He does admit that he gives great advice because of the things he’s been through in life but also says he’s refuses to listen to his sisters complain about each other anymore.

While Drake has been crowned The King of The North for quite some time now, Tory Lanez could easily be considered the prince of the city and with his new album Memories Don’t Die fresh off the presses, he’s bound to get some more royal recognition.
Today the Toronto representative stopped by The Breakfast Club to talk with the morning trio (sans DJ Envy) and revealed some interesting tidbits. From the inspiration from his album title to why Nicki Minaj took her verse off of “Shooters,” Tory isn’t shy about being honest regardless of how he may come off.
Here are the 12 things we learned from Tory Lanez on The Breakfast Club.
1. Fake Friends
The meaning behind his latest album title Memories Don’t Die is based on the time his friends didn’t hold him down when some cats tried to rush Tory. That’s when he realized he was with fake friends and has since been particular about who he lets into his cipher.
Over the past few years Troy Ave has become Hip-Hop fans’ favorite punching bag and while such online animosity would’ve broken most rappers by now, the BK rapper has kept chugging along. Remaining defiant in the eyes of his haters and headstrong in his belief that he’s here for a reason, Troy Ave isn’t phased by all the slander he’s been getting since his album flopped like a disk.
A week after once again stirring up social media because he insinuated he’d take the stand in Taxstone’s trial, the Trop stopped by The Breakfast Club to talk about said subject while also opening up as much as he legally can about his current case, growing as a man, and why he doesn’t feel his album, Major Without A Deal, really flopped.
Here are the 6 things we learned from Troy Ave on The Breakfast Club.
Aside from Jay-Z, Jeezy’s been everyone’s favorite rapping hustler in the Hip-Hop game for the past decade and change and with his latest album Pressuredropping today the Snowman is back on his grizzly.

Here are the 10 things we learned from Jeezy on The Breakfast Club.
For the longest time Safaree’s been known as Nicki Minaj’s man or Nicki Minaj’s ex. So for the past year and change the Brooklyn rapper’s been trying to change that label by stepping out on his own with his own music and joining the cast of Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood.
So yesterday Nicki Minaj’s ex dropped by The Breakfast Club for a second to give an entertaining interview where he spoke on his affection for furs, his lack of communication with his famous ex-wifey, and why he cried on that episode of Love & Hip Hop.
Here are the 6 things we learned from Safaree on The Breakfast Club.

COFFE KLATCH: Iulia Dobrin, founder of luxury lingerie brand I.D. Sarrieri, and Karine Ohana, a partner of investment bank Ohana & Co., hosted a breakfast gathering at Le Ritz Paris on Friday morning.
Guests at the event, including Frédérique Picard, Thierry Maman, Emmanuelle Brizay, Martine Geromegnace, Lan Vu and Michèle Evrard, could peruse I.D. Sarrieri’s summer 2018 collection that was on display in the sun-filled suite.
“We try to present during fashion week the ready-to-wear side of the collection,” explained Dobrin. “We decided to start that some seasons ago.”
Ready-to-wear season also serves as an occasion for her to meet with fashion editors in town for the shows.
Also in attendance at the breakfast was Stephan Borchert, the newly named chief executive officer of GrandVision, who most recently served as president of Sephora Europe and the Middle East. Borchert said he will take up his new position, based in Amsterdam, in January 2018.
Madrid-based jewelry designer Helena Rohner was in Paris presenting her line at the Première Classe trade show. Her collection, fashion jewelry with a high-end finish, is sold mainly in Japan, in London through Paul Smith and in the Scandinavian markets.

There never will be a time where Joe Budden won’t be entertaining on The Breakfast Club. The polarizing MC who somehow also functions as an open book could circle back on the show the very next day and still make for an entertaining conversation, word to his successful podcast.
Budden is back on the scene–musically–with a new album named All Love Lost dropping at the end of the week but that comes secondary to all the other drama that surrounds his life. Check out all the highlights we learned from Joe Budden on The Breakfast Club in the gallery below.
Browse the Instagram feed of any committed health blogger and, alongside the buckwheat porridges and chia pudding shots, you’ll now find one slightly easier-to-make morning cousin: Combining all the fruit-enriched goodness of a smoothie and the heartier dig-into-it appeal of the breakfast bowl, the so-called smoothie bowl has become a full-fledged health phenomenon in recent months. Here’s how it works: Throw a frozen banana, half an avocado, a teaspoon of honey, and a splash of oat milk into your Vitamix, then finish by scattering your favorite almonds, fresh berries, and superfood seeds on top—and suddenly you’ve artfully plated (bowled?) the kind of culinary wonder that puts your childhood Wheaties to shame. Whether you’re drawn to My New Roots’ floral-garnished concoctions; Plant_Fueled’s immune-boosting, citrus-fueled recipes; or Clean Food Dirty City’s metabolic-boosting coconut butter blends, breakfast has never looked better. These six accounts will provide regular smoothie bowl inspiration—simply like and press blend.
A nonchalant Future recently stopped by The Breakfast Club to discuss his new Dirty Sprite album, moving back to Atlanta, patching things up with Drake and where he stands with his ex-fiancée Ciara after she was spotted with Russell Wilson, their son in tow.
“If I was a kid, and my momma had some dude pushing me, I would’ve jumped out the stroller and slapped the sh*t out of him,” he said in reference to Ciara allowing the NFL star to play daddy. “You never do that in our community…you’ve only known this dude for a few months and bring him around your son, who does that?!” Future maintains that Ciara could easily have a team of nannies and assistants to help her with Baby Future while she gets to know Russ and that he’s not for all of the “publicity stunts.”
But Future Hendrix was cool as a cucumber in the discussion moderated by a rather feverish Charlamagne, DJ Envy and Angela Yee. Hit the flip to see what else we learned from their talk.
What dad doesn’t like a nice breakfast and a shower??
On “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” this week, Jimmy put out a challenge to his viewers: serve your father a nice breakfast on Father’s Day. Sounds rather lovely! The one catch — because it wouldn’t be fun if there wasn’t — is that your dad must be in the shower when you serve it.
Jimmy, you’re going to be making a lot of enemies who have the power to turn off the television. Still, this should prove to be pretty hilarious.
We can’t wait. Sorry, dads.

They were five students with nothing in common, faced with spending a Saturday detention together in their high school library. At 7 a.m., they had nothing to say, but by 4 p.m. they had bared their souls to each other and become good friends. John Hughes, creator of the critically acclaimed Sixteen Candles, wrote, directed and produced this hilarious and often touching comedy starring Emilio Estevez, Anthony Michael Hall, Judd Nelson, Molly Ringwald and Ally Sheedy. To the outside world they were simply the Jock, the Brain, the Criminal, the Princess and the Kook, but to each other, they would always be The Breakfast Club.
Thirty years ago, while cooped up in Saturday morning detention, a group of teens learned that people categorize one another in certain ways, and discovered that each one of them is a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess and a criminal.
Earlier this year “The Breakfast Club” celebrated its 30th anniversary and at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday night, the film’s star Molly Ringwald introduced the band Simple Minds to perform their 1985 hit song “Don’t You (Forget About Me),” which plays in both the opening credits and final scene of the movie.
The band got the crowd singing along to the 80s hit and it looked like Ringwald, who joked about wanting to be in Taylor Swift’s club, got her wish:
In the same way that people are more than just a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess or a criminal, “The Breakfast Club” is more than just a movie. Released 30 years ago last month, John Hughes’ classic film transcends generations and continues to reach new fans today. In fact, because of its popularity, it was recently rereleased in theaters and given a newly restored DVD and BluRay, providing the cast with an opportunity to reminisce about their time on set.
Though the movie has been around almost a third of a century now, there are still a lot of things about it that fans don’t know. In honor of “The Breakfast Club’s” 30th anniversary, HuffPost Entertainment talked to cast members Ally Sheedy, aka Allison Reynolds, and John Kapelos, aka janitor Carl Reed, about behind-the-scenes moments and stories that have never quite been told in full detail.
She’s the basket case, he’s the eyes and ears of the institution, and these are eight facts you might not know:
1. Judd Nelson wasn’t almost fired JUST for picking on Molly Ringwald. He also couldn’t stay in the shots.
By now you may have heard that Nelson, who played the volatile John Bender, was nearly let go from the film. Though his picking on Ringwald was a large part of that, Sheedy explained to HuffPost Entertainment that there was more to the story.
“Judd kind of does this very free-ranging thing with his body. You can see it in the movie,” said Sheedy. “He’s not great at hitting marks, and he wanted to move around and stuff, and I think they were having trouble keeping him in shot.”
The story goes that the cast went to Hughes and pleaded with him to keep Nelson on the project. They also talked to Nelson about how he could help himself out. “If I remember correctly, we all talked to him. The four of us. And I think my thing about it was just focus, just focus, just focus,” said Sheedy.
2. The topless scene wasn’t the only scandalous moment removed. There was also a risque scene involving “MILFs.”
Sheedy confirmed that a topless scene involving a swimming teacher was cut out of the film, saying: “I think John [Hughes] didn’t want to have it in the movie. I think he thought it didn’t really work for him.”
Kapelos later added to the story, telling HuffPost that there was more to the scandalous moment. “I think there was also a scene with a bunch of MILFs or middle-aged cougar women who were doing an aerobics class in the gym and were really letting it go. I think there was a lascivious moment there,” he said. “But you know… it’s like putting a bow on an elephant. It just doesn’t belong there.”
3. Rick Moranis, who was originally cast as the janitor, didn’t just play the part as a Russian. He was also doing something suggestive with his keys.
Moranis, who’d appeared in “Ghostbusters” the year before, was originally cast to play the janitor in “The Breakfast Club,” and Sheedy even says she was “a little star struck” by him while filming. Things didn’t work out, of course, and Moranis was soon replaced by Kapelos.
According to the script, the janitor is meant to be a former student of the high school, as indicated by his picture in the case at the beginning of the film. But when it came to Moranis’ portrayal, Kapelos said the actor and producers didn’t have “a meeting of the creative minds at that moment.”

“From what I was told,” said Kapelos, “he wanted to play the character as a Russian with gold teeth and keys between his legs, playing with it provocatively… and so it’s like, it wasn’t organic, I guess is putting it politely and correctly.”
4. No, Ally Sheedy did not really use her dandruff as an art project.
Sheedy explains the scene was always in the film, and though she doesn’t know who actually drew the picture, she did set the record straight on one detail. The actress explained that dandruff she scratched out of her hair wasn’t actually dandruff or even Parmesan cheese as previously thought. “I think it was potato flakes of some kind,” Sheedy said.
5. There’s a dark answer to Judd Nelson’s question, “How does one become a janitor?”
A memorable moment happens when John Bender asks Kapelos’ character “how one becomes a janitor.” Though it’s clear Bender is just doing it to irk him, it turns out there was an answer to the question after all.
“Really? You want to know?” laughed Kapelos when HuffPost Entertainment repeated Bender’s question. The actor then went into his character’s dark history, saying: “You have to have your heart broken by your teenage sweetheart in your third year of university when you’re doing a great football scholarship. Drop out. Lose her heart. Lose her affection. Make sure her father hates you even more and will never include you in his future plans. Even if you try to make up to her. And then you get a job at your old high school as a janitor, and you try to lick your wounds. That’s how you become a janitor. That’s Carl’s pathetic backstory.”
6. A cut scene shows that Allison wasn’t smoking pot with the others because she was actually off somewhere singing.
A variety of scenes from the movie were cut from the final film, and Sheedy recalled one that was a big moment for her character.
“John [Hughes] let me shoot something with Allison alone in the audiovisual tiny room, singing a capella,” she told HuffPost. “That was something I just came up with. Singing a little song to herself. And that was, for me, the emotional transition that was when they were smoking pot.”
“She sang the song to herself and then she walked out of the room and just joined the group,” Sheedy went on. “So that wasn’t in the script, and he actually let me shoot it. He shot it twice, and then afterwards said that everybody sort of thought it was a little bit too weird.”
Hughes allowed a lot of improvisation in the movie, and one moment that made it into the film was the conversation between Carl and Paul Gleason’s character, Principal Richard Vernon, after the janitor catches Vernon going through confidential files.
“John Hughes just told me before the take, ‘Cut him off and ask him for 50 bucks.’ So I did,” said Kapelos. “And if you see the movie again, take a look at Paul’s reaction, because it’s real. He was really [ticked off]. And after John Hughes yelled ‘cut,’ it got a little funky for a bit. He was like, ‘Really?’ He got annoyed. We got the take on that one.”
8. Kapelos told Emilio Estevez that if he’d been present for Martin Sheen’s 1977 heart attack, he would have just let it happen… not knowing that Sheen was Estevez’s father.
Though he explained that no one has really told the story correctly, Kapelos says that one day on set he did call out Estevez and Nelson for goofing off while he was shooting a scene. He told HuffPost: “I’m on a movie set, and I’m scared, you know, shitless. I want to do well. They’re trying to make me crack up. They’re goofing off.”
To get Estevez and Nelson to stop, Kapelos told them: “You guys would’ve been great if you were on the set of ‘Apocalypse Now’ with Martin Sheen, and he goes in front of you and starts having his heart attack, and you’re not believing he’s in trouble, and he’s just wincing and moaning in pain and ripping at his chest and you guys would just sit there and let him have his heart attack, right?”
“In other words,” Kapelos told HuffPost, “I was saying, ‘Hey, I’m up here struggling. I’m in pain, and you guys are just letting me wither on the vine.'”
That’s not how Estevez took it, though. “All of a sudden Emilio’s face goes white. Like, I’m telling you, expressionless and white. And everybody’s looking at me like I just shot the pope.” Hughes told Kapelos that Estevez was Sheen’s son, and though Kapelos was “flummoxed” and apologetic, it was too late. Estevez never accepted an apology. “The garage door was going down,” said Kapelos. “That’s all Emilio wrote.”
She’s a member of “The Breakfast Club,” but Sheedy says breakfast isn’t actually her thing. “I never, ever eat it. Ever,” she told HuffPost. “I really just like to get that caffeine going in the morning and just have that buzz as long as possible.”
Happy anniversary, “Breakfast Club.” Here’s to another 30 years!
