If you turn on the Style Network at any given time of the day, chances are you're going to see Kimora Lee Simmons sharing her fashion tips during the commercial breaks. The model, actress, fashion designer, and author (she wrote Fabulosity: What It Is And How To Get It) is known just as much for her high profile relationships as she is for her multiple business ventures. Married and divorced from fashion and music mogul Russell Simmons (the pair has two tween daughters), Kimora recently separated from her latest beau Dijimon Hounsou with whom she has a three-year-old-son.
Kimora showcased her life on the reality series Kimora: Life In The Fab Lane which aired on Style and featured her family and business as she ran Phat Fashions. Now that she and Dijimon have split–they never legally married in the United States but did participate in a traditional ceremony–Kimora is dishing on the importance of putting children first and focusing on the positive.

Recently Kimora spoke to Us Weekly about her priorities now that she's single again. While she continues to focus on family and her three children, she's happy being by herself for a while…not that she has anything to negative to say about her exes. In fact, she knows that she'll be able to successfully co-parent with Dijimon like she does with Russell.
Kimora shares, "Relationships do change throughout the course of your life, and I always think in terms of relationships changing and evolving rather than starting and stopping. Kids never go away from your life, and if you've been married, that person probably never goes away either. You never get rid of anyone and they never really get rid of you!"
Admitting that it's not always easy to stay on good terms, Kimora adds, , "I try to do everything from the viewpoint of what's best for my kids. I have three kids and two great dads and it's not always easy, but you have to try to be a little selfless and we manage just fine."
Disputing rumors that she's been dating a professional boxer, Kimora states that she's been single since her split from Dijimon. She reveals, "I'm not with anyone at the moment. It's just my kids and their two dads, I guess."
The reality star insists that dating is difficult because men are often intimidated by her levels of success. Kimora continues, "They have a lot of insecurities about who we are, what we have, what we look like, what we've accomplished and what we're capable of because we're fabulous and capable of doing so much and juggling so much every day. People might be mad I'm saying this, but [men] do have a lot of hang-ups. But that shouldn't deter you ladies from being great! You don't have to dumb down — you just have to find a clever, good, secure man. I've found a couple — I've been lucky — but it's probably hard for everybody to find that true love of a good man."
Is it just me, or does all of her chit-chat make it sound like Kimora is gearing up to write a new Fabulosity tome? This time on relationships, of course!
