Uncle Russell’s Open Letter To Aunt Kimora… As Sweet As Pastry!


I have been a huge fan of the Simmons family. Not just Vanessa and Angela Simmons, but also all the Simmons family members, from Rev. Run to Uncle Russell.  I love this family ‘coz they keep it real. They’re sweet to each other but they’re anything but fake.  Today I found out that Uncle Russell wrote this open letter addressed to his ex-wife, the mother of Vanessa and Angela’s cousins: Ming and Aoki Lee… the ever fabulous Kimora Lee Simmons.  Here’s the open letter written by Uncle Russ in his blog.

To all the fathers out there, it’s almost Mother’s Day, so you better start thinking about doing the right thing…Flowers, dinner, breakfast in bed, tuition, something special…

Everyone knows Kimora Lee Simmons as a fashion model, author, the genius behind Baby Phat, President and creative director for Phat Fashions, philanthropist, reality television star, talk show host, top model judge…the list goes on and on. To me, she has been my partner, best friend, consultant, confidant and basically the greatest mother I could ever hope for, for my daughters. I feel so blessed to continue to have such a great personal and professional relationship with her. Every time I spend time with our girls, I credit her for giving them their manners, thoughtfulness, intelligence, beauty and kindness.

A lot of you fathers, if you look deeply inside of yourself, you will find the support system in your baby’s mama, that allows you the freedom to sleep at night. Even though you are partly disconnected from the daily process of raising your children, you can trust that she’s getting the job done. So celebrate your baby’s mama, as I do! I know damn well, I’m grateful for my babies’ mama.

Happy Mother’s Day Kimora! You are loved, appreciated and celebrated!

All my love,

I only have one short take on this:

If only people can stay good friends like they are even after realizing their differences, this world would be a much much better place.
