Although still fab, the Kimora Lee Simmons we see in "Kimora: House of Fab" (9 tonight, Style) is a little different than the one who lived in the fab lane.
Oh, she's still drama. Yet there's something different. Maybe because her relationship with Djimon Hounsou recently ended or maybe it's because she's now a mother of three. Whatever it is, on this series, we see Kimora firmly as a mogul and much less as a mom. (Maybe the girls, now teens, want some privacy?) In fact, at one point, some personal photos are blurred out in her office. Ms. Fabulosity wants us to see her building a brand.
The brand is JustFab, an online site for affordable shoes, handbags and accessories. It's a competitive world; Kim Kardashian's similar site ShoeDazzle just brought in Rachel Zoe as the chief stylist.
At JustFab, Kimora is both an executive and the face of the business, which sometimes makes things complicated. Of course, for a reality show, uh, I mean docuseries, that's drama gold. Basically, we get to see how others handle Kimora, how Kimora resists the handling, and how Kimora's fab sensibility saves the day. Sometimes we the show focuses on other execs in the office. Oh, and there's the required sassy gay guy.
If you like Kimora, and I admit I kinda do, you'll enjoy the show. She looks great. And even when she's in full fabulous mode, there's something endearing about her.
