KIMORA LEE SIMMONS BRINGS SOME SHAKE TO HER CHILLI CHEESE FRIES

Posted in Kimora Lee Simmons on September 17, 2010 by fadedblog

No one’s ever accused Kimora Lee Simmons of being a waify Hollywood type.

The 35-year-old designing diva continued to break the mold as she munched on some chili cheese fries at Pink’s Hotdogs in Hollywood on Thursday (September 16).

Though she was composed then, it appears Kimora lost it when she was sat next to her ex-husband at New York Fashion Week.

According to the New York Post, she began shouting when she discovered hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons next to her at the Z-Spoke show.

Says a source: “She yelled, ‘I don’t want to sit next to you! They’re going to take pictures, and I don’t want to be in pictures with you! I called, and you hung up on me.”

But the pair ironed out their differences.

The insider continues: “After Kimora Lee stated ‘I want a divorce’, the already-divorced couple hugged it out. Russell graciously gave Kimora Lee his aisle seat, sat next to her, and all was well with the world.”

This comes after Kimora admitted she was “shocked” at getting dumped from Baby Phat, the fashion line she created with her ex-husband. “It’s over,” she said. “It’s absolutely over.”

KIM LEE SIMMONS TEACHES HER GIRLS THE 1, 2, 3’S OF SHOPPING

Kimora Lee Simmons is teaching her young daughters the roles of retail at an early age.

The 35-year-old designing diva was all smiles as she sucked down her Jamba Juice following an exahustive how-to shopping spree at Fred Segal in Beverly Hills on Wednesday (August 25) with her girls.

Meanwhile, after announcing on Twitter that she would leave the Baby Phat label behind to focus on her other many fashion labels, the New York Post reports that, in fact, Kimora didn’t leave the Kellwood Corporation–owned company — they “unceremoniously dumped” her!

Another source told the paper that firing Kimora may have been a cost-cutting measure.

“Kimora was going over-budget. She’d pay herself a fee to be in the ads, plus she paid her children fees to appear in ads. It costs thousands of dollars to airbrush her because she’s a size 10. Plus, they spent a ton of money on body doubles. They would shoot another model in the clothes, and take Kimora’s head and put in on her body.”

As you may recall, Kimora’s ad people famous Photoshopped supermodel Daria Werbowy‘s Vogue cover body onto Kimora’s for the Dare Me ads.

Proving she’s as much of a diva as she is a good mother, Kimora Lee Simmons is teaching her young daughters to give back.

The 35-year-old fashion designer celebrated her daughter Aoki Lee Simmons‘ 8th birthday on Tuesday (August 24) by hosting a fashion show in honor of the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Held at Modani in West Hollywood, Kimora could be seen giving some sick kids tips on walking the runway before sitting down for an all-you-can-eat catered lunch.

Also in attendance? The birthday girl’s big sister Ming Lee and her 15-month-old baby brother Kenzo.

Meanwhile, Kimora has quit her role at the clothing company set up by her ex-husband Russell Simmons.

The reality TV star carved out a career in fashion by joining Russell’s Phat Farm firm and designing for the Baby Phat brand.

She stayed on as creative director after the company was sold in 2004 as part of a massive $140-million deal, but she has now quit to pursue other fashion projects.

Kimora says in a statement, “It’s time for me to move on and further expand my other businesses and create a new phenomenon. I adore all those who have faithfully been with me since the beginning. I’m forever dedicated to my family, fans, and customers.”
