Kimora Lee Simmons Blasts ‘Ridiculous’ Weight Story
Kimora Lee Simmons is fuming mad over a recent story claiming that she refrained from eating to cause a recent weight loss, and the Baby Phat queen is firing back big time.
On her blog, Kimora lashed out at a column by PopEater’s Rob Shuter, saying that her quotes were taken far out of context. “This story led people to believe that I shed 25 lbs by not eating, which is completely ridiculous. I am a mother of three young children, two of whom are girls and I’m trying to raise them with a healthy body image,” Kimora wrote.
The fashion-focused mom continued, saying:
“It’s taken me almost a year to lose close to 25 lbs and I did it through healthy diet and exercise. So yes, I’m a bit smaller, but still curvy and 100% healthy and proud of my body and the time it has taken me to undergo this personal journey for myself. I’m not one of those “superstar moms” who lost all their baby weight in a week. So, yes, I’m upset about the innuendo because I just can’t win. In the past year there have been numerous rumors about my weight — first I was attacked for being a size 10, now I’m anorexic? I’m a real woman and I represent real women.”I believe that people are beautiful at any size, color or weight.
Kimora says that the column was “a silly way to sensationalize a story, especially when you know young people will be reading it. There must be more accountability in reporting, especially considering the far reaching impact on girls and young women who are exposed to this kind of misleading information on a daily basis. What kind of example is that setting for them?”
