Simmons has Style for series
EmptyFashion entrepreneur and author Kimora Lee Simmons will add reality TV star to her résumé when her unscripted sitcom debuts on the Style Network in the summer.
Tentatively titled "Kimora," the series chronicles the professional life of the former model, who juggles a business team of publicists, managers, creative directors and fashion designers while dealing with her two daughters at their home in New Jersey, where they are surrounded by nannies, chefs, drivers and stylists.
"(Simmons) is refreshingly blunt, absolutely honest and outrageously entertaining," said Salaam Coleman Smith, executive vp at the Style Network. "This series is going to open a lot of women's eyes to the possibilities life has to offer."
"Kimora" was developed for the Style Network by Elaine Brooks. Steve Cantor and Carmen Mitcho will executive produce.
The St. Louis native began modeling as a teenager and has since written a book, "Fabulosity: What It Is and How to Get It," and developed a successful clothing line, Baby Phat. Her former husband is rap mogul Russell Simmons.
