Kimora Lee Simmons - bitchy and proud of it

If you haven't tuned in for her reality show, Life in the Fab Lane on the Style Network, you have to experience it at least one time. Kimora takes you into her insane glamorous lifestyle of the rich and famous . . . by insane, I mean it is like a whirlwind.

Of course she has someone to help her do just about everything for her . . . I'm way impressed with her beautiful and immaculately organized "closet" that is almost as big as my entire house and reminds me of a plush boutique . . . she travels here and there and I had never thought of how the rich and famous prepare to travel, or should I say how everyone else prepares for them to travel . . .

She's here, there and everywhere . . . barking out commands to everyone around her . . . and yes, my impression of her was "this woman is a real bitch" the first time I saw the program. Now I see her as a woman who is tending to business in her own way. No no no . . . I would NEVER work for her!! The show also chronicles the professional lives of those who work for her . . . talk about stressed out people!

Kimora began her career as a fashion model at the early age of 13 when she was personally chosen by fashion czar Karl Lagerfeld to model for the esteemed house of Chanel in Paris. Her success as a runway model gave Kimora an innate sense of style which propels her as a fashion designer.

This woman has everything "material" any woman would ever want . . . but is she happy? The trade-off for having it all is not a dull moment . . . how about peace? With all those people working for her, it appears that she still doesn't have peace. At the moment, this is one of my favorite programs that I try not to miss.

Actually, although I have great admiration for Kimora's accomplishments and glamorous lifestyle, I'd rather be poor and have peace in my life.
I can vicariously live her glamorous lifestyle once a week by tuning in to her show.

Check out Kimora's reality show on the Style Network . . . she is a dynamic woman and one of my present day pop culture icons.

The following is an article by Marc Malkin from his blog on E-Online . . .
Kimora Lee Simmons doesn’t mind if you think she’s a bitch.

“As a woman, if you’re outspoken and you know what you want, you’re a bitch,” the Style Network reality-show star says in the new issue of Giant magazine. “And if you don’t know what you want, then you’re a ditz. It’s very hard to gain men’s respect, and men in the industry disrespected me all the time.”

But Simmons is the one laughing all the way to the bank. The 33-year-old former model and mother of two is creative officer of Phat Fashions, the company started by her ex, Russell Simmons, which now includes Baby Phat, Phat Farm, Phat Farm Kids and the new juniors’ label Fabulosity.

“Many [women] don’t know if they should speak up and run the risk of looking stupid or bitchy,” Simmons says. “I always say, ‘Go for bitchy’ ’cause they’re gonna say you’re a bitch no matter what.’ If you’re smart and you speak up, you’re a bitch. But at least you get what you want.”

Simmons, however, is a bit more reserved when it comes to dishing about her Oscar-nominated actor and Calvin Klein underwear-model boyfriend Djimon Hounsou. Although mum on details, she does say, “I’m just happy and grateful to go home to my kids and a man that loves and accepts me for me—glamorous or not.”
