Rev. Run won’t be the only Simmons brother with his own reality series.

Oxygen has announced the development of “The Russell Simmons Project,” which will follow the female assistants who “manage his business deals… family life, party planning and love life,” the network stated.

“Russell Simmons is a fascinating man, and seeing his world through the eyes of his dream team comprised of strong, passionate women provides a unique experience for our viewers,” said Amy Introcaso-Davis, senior vice president of programming for the Oxygen network.

“Throughout my career I have surrounded myself with people smarter than me,” Simmons said. “This show will let them shine and provide insight into how we build our empire from the inside out.”

Joseph “Rev. Run” Simmons stars with his family in MTV’s “Run’s House,” which is currently filming its seventh season until mid 2010.

In other Russell Simmons news, the mogul and Global Grind have announced the acquisition of CelebrityTweet, a social networking site devoted to “stalking your favorite celebrities,” by featuring their tweets along with media-rich detail pages devoted to each celebrity.

The CelebrityTweet site, and its syndicated widgets, feeds and mobile applications are available for consumers and businesses “that want to connect to the most powerful dialogue between trend-makers and their fans,” the company said in a statement.
