Being a reality TV star herself, you’d think mom-of-three Kimora Lee Simmons would have good things to say about the medium. In fact, the Phat Fashions CEO dismisses most TV as “crap,” saying that she doesn’t allow her daughters Ming, 10, and Aoki, 7, to spend much time in front of the tube.
“We just don’t watch a lot of TV,” Kimora tells E! “TV’s kind of crap. Even the news is kind of crap.”
The girls may not be allowed to watch mom’s show, Kimora: Life in the Fab Lane, but they do make appearances from time to time. Kimora is quick to point out, however, that her show is a far cry from the now-cancelled family-based reality series Jon & Kate Plus 8.
“I would never do a show like [Jon & Kate Plus 8],” says Kimora, who is also mom to 9-month-old son Kenzo. “My show is not like that. My show is about me as a business woman. My kids are the B-story or C-story… You’re just not watching them run through the house and have temper tantrums and pick out what they’re eating for dinner.”
The new season of Kimora: Life in the Fab Lane can be seen Sunday nights on the Style Network.
