Vanessa Simmons’s upcoming show, Queen Boss, is all about empowering young women entrepreneurs.

“It’s a reality competition show where we’ll be taking one start-up company and giving them the opportunity of a lifetime by giving them funding and invaluable advice,” she tells Wetpaint exclusively.

She continued, “I’m hoping it will start some kind of movement towards just motivating each other.  We need to uplift each other and empower each other than compete.  I think completion with yourself is healthy, but competition amongst women? I feel like that should be squashed and we should just be empowering one another.”

The multi-talented mom and mogul worked with women like TV executive Tracey Edmonds, Lawyer Lauren Lake, and Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss, who Vanessa says was in a completely different mindset while filming Queen Boss.
