Kimora Lee Simmons gets reality show on Style
Kimora Lee Simmons, wife of Russell Simmons and CEO of the Baby Phat clothing line, is getting her own reality series on the Style Network. The series, which has the working title Kimora, will premiere sometime this summer.
Kimora started out as a fashion model in her early teens, later married Russell Simmons, and in 2004 was co-host of Life and Style on UPN. She has also appeared in the films Rebound and Beauty Shop, and was a judge on America's Next Top Model.
The new series will follow Kimora through her daily routine of raising her family and running her business, and, as this press release states, will "open a lot of women's eyes to the possibilities life has to offer," especially if you happen to be a teenage model who catches the eye of a multi-millionaire almost two decades older than you. It's the kind of success story that can only be obtained through sheer tenacity and borderline pedophilia. It's almost Disneyesque, this modern fairy tale.
