Russell Simmons, whose divorce to Kimora Lee Simmons was finalized this month, recently spoke to OK! Magazine and praised his ex-wife’s mothering abilities.

He says:

“She’s an excellent mother, and I’m inspired by the way she’s raising our children. They are well-behaved and well-spoken. They are always well-groomed.

Hmm. We know a little bit about Kimora’s parenting methods, because we read her book, Fabulosity, cover-to-cover. Here’s an excerpt, which features her approach to building healthy relationships for her daughters with food:

“If you’re blessed enough to have kids, it’s your duty to take care of them and teach them how to eat. My kids do not drink soda, they only drink water and O.J. (No dairy, either.) I try to limit their candy, but I’m careful not to make it a big deal or ever ban it outright. If we totally took it away, they’d be obsessed! As it is now, they get one M&M at a time, and the only person who is allowed to give them candy is me–the nanny can’t let them have any. She tells them ‘you have to ask your mom.’ I’ll give them one or maybe two at the most. Ming will eat her M&M so slowly, savoring the sugar, the chocolate, and the peanut because she knows she’s not getting another one. Surprisingly the kids will snack on carrots and grapes, too. I hope my kids will grow up with a healthy relationship to food and not obsess over it–it’s important to me that they think of food as a good, happy thing, and be educated about it.”



We’re gonna call bullshit on Russ (even if his tots are, er, well-groomed)–baby mama sounds key-razy as a clown, and we think he’s just tossing out the accolades to avoid an Amazonasian beat-down.
