    it’s a bit too much… for kids.

  • [~Famous~]

    Beautifully unique looking kids, ugly clothes.

    More checks.

    Geez, Kimora Lee looks like a tranny. What was Russell thinking?

  • Layla

    Aoki is really cute. Ming, well, is being to look a lot like her dad.

  • Mmmmm

    Was Kimora fat at one point in her life? Why does her neck look like she was fat, she has a chubby neck. Talk about high maintence, these girls will make Sweet Sixteen (on MTV) look like childs play.

  • Jaiimel

    It’s sad to see… Kids dont need this. When i look at
    the pictures i couldn’t tell if they were happy, can you?!

  • mercredi

    Aoki doesn’t seem happy that time. She usually “strike” the pose with a huge smile. LOL

  • BBperfume

    Why are Kimora and Simon getting a divorce after all? It’s really stressful for a potential man /woman who want to date them NOT to have paranoia and trust issues the way these still have so much contact and and keep doing business ventures together.

    People get divorce when they can’t stand each other anymore, but these two still look married bcoz they keep close..???

  • http://yahoo.com cutie pie

    the kids are the cutest kids i have ever seen, black and phillipine mix very well together. more than i can say for others. they have nice wavy hair and the beautiful tan complexion. best of both worlds.id say

  • Sarah

    I feel sorry for the girl who’s called ‘Ming’.

  • Babysis

    Why do a 7 and a 5 year old have a fashion line?
    They need to be kids, and not try to be a designers.
    But they are REALLLYYY cute.

  • Kelly

    “black and phillipine mix very well together”

    Kimora is Korean/Japanese and black.

  • Corpus Christi

    Kimora=High Class Whore.. She got what she wanted and the dumped Russell.

    She needs to kneel before him and thank him daily.
    The kids are cute though.

  • bdj

    Cute kids. Kimora is quite the business woman. She is always looking for the next deal.

  • nicetry

    Is this a F@#King Joke?

    AOKI is common japanese surname. it’s so strange that the name is used as a given name. it will be never used as a given name in japan.And It means that blue tree.hahaha

  • http://yahoo.com cutie pie

    yeah kelly i said phillipine…. so effing what japanese asian korean whatever the hell she is she did the right thing when she mixed with a black man , because her kids are drop dead gorgeous, but i have seen black/phillipine and they are drop dead gorgeous, like i SAID before the best of both worlds. damn all the little petty ass corrections, they poinbt is the kids asre cute.

  • Muesli Hughes

    I love Kimora Lee, her personality is all-consuming. Also, aren’t acrimonious divorces pretty. Why do people have to fight like dogs when they end their marriages. It’s so nice when people can be civil, even if it’s just for the sake of a child named Ming.

  • j

    what horrible names

  • http://yahoo.com cutie pie

    WHO GIVES A DAMN ABOUT THE NAMES WHAT HORRIBLE NAMES / COME O N YOU WISH YOU COULD BE AS PRETTY AS THESE KIDS. I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANY MIXED KIDS FROM ANY OTHER RACES AS PRETTY AS BLACK/WHAT EVER KIMORA IS , I KNOW HER FATHER IS BLACK . SO OFF WITH THE STUPID COMMENTS, OH SHES KOREAN JAPANESE WHO GIVES A DAMN. THE FATHER IS BLACK AND HE COULD HAVE INDIAN AND OTHER THINGS IN HIM. IM SO SICK OF ALL THIS RACE BULLCRAP/ EVERYBODY HAS MIXES IN THEM / MY MOTHER IS MIXED HER FATHER WAS WHITE/ IM LIGHT SKINNED WITH LIGHT EYES/ BUT I DONT GO AROUND SAYING IM 1/4 WHITE I SAY IM BLACK AND IM PROUD TO BE BLACK. I LOVE MY SKIN COLOR/ WITH THE TAN TONES TO IT. SO WHO GIVES A DAMN IM TALKING ABOUT HOW CUTE THE KIDS ARE. DAMN

  • stone mountain

    I dare anyone to speak ill words against those beatuiful little girls

    what you write about them can cause emotional pain for the

    child later in life. Please be mindful of celebirties kids.

    They did not ask to be in the lime light.

  • tiffany

    why is it that when someone does something good and productive, there is always some one “hating” on them. Like most of the people who commented on the little girl’s names, their clothing line, their mother, and so on. I think that this is a good thing for these girls. I assume that thos of you who nit-picked every detail are just jealous because you didnt have a chance to have your own clothing line, travel the world, be millionairs,and model at their age. I think that this is a wonderful thing that Kimora and Russel have done for their children!!!!!!!!!!

  • csmith

    well first off kimora’s been a made woman since tha age of 13. yeah 13 that when she started high end fashion modeling, so you you do the math she dont need that man for a thing she was already a raking in the dough before probaly before you where even born haterz!!!!!!! stop being outta of pocket

  • wow

    yeppie

  • Siedah

    yes Kimora was a model before she met Russell, but trust me, she wasn’t making as much money then as we think she does. only a select hand full of SUPERmodels make millions of dollars ( Heidi KLum, Tyra Banks, Naomi Campbell, Adriana Lima, Giselle Bouchen ), those are the ones with endorsement deals && etc. She didn’t have any of that when she was modeling. && truth be told no one really knew who she was before she married Russell. All that doesn’t change the fact that woman is arrogant && rude.

    anyways this is suppose to be about those two little girls. Who are incredibly adorable. speaking for myself, it just seems all too much for two little children. && they look like a pack of high lighters exploded on their clothing. they don’t look too happy in the pics, their smiles looked forced && painted on. Especially Ming’s. You can definately tell that Ming gravitates more to her father && Aoki gravitates more to her mother.

  • Janece

    I didn’t read all these negative comments when Mary Kate and Ashley were on Full House day in and day out, or when they had a million dvds to buy or when they came out with their clothing line. I think this is a beautiful thing. Face it, those two girls will never have a normal life. They live better than 70% of the United States. Let them start young so we won’t be reading bad things about them in 10 years.

  • NEW NEW

    I THINK THAT KIMORA IS A GOOD THING SUPRISEN THE GIRLS HELP KIMOREA WITH BABY PHAT AND LOTOF OTHETR THINGS.SO MAYBE SHE SAW HOW MUCH THEY LIKED FASHION AND CAME TO THEM WITH THE IDEA I MEAN IF YOUR MOM WAS GOOD BUSINESS WOMEN LIKE KIMOREA WOULDNT YOU WANT TO BE LIKE HER CAUSE I KNOW I WOULD. SO FOR ALL OF YALL HOW TALKIN BAD ABOUT KIMORE. MAYBE Y’ALL SHOULD GET OFF YOUR BUTTS AND DO SOMETHING WITH YOUR LIFES BETTER YOUR SELFS GET OUT THE HOOD AND PROJECTS BETTER YOUR SELF MAYBE YOU ALL SHOULD GO GET HER BOOK I KNOW IT HELPED ME AFTER I READ IT I GOT MYSELF TOGETHER KNOW IM IN MY LAST YEAR IN HIGH SCHOOL AND HOPEFUL I BE A FRESHMAN AT SPELLMAN NEXT YEAR. NO I DONT CAME FROM MONEY IT’S JUST ME AND MY MOMMY AND SHE’S NEVER GAVE A DAMN ABOUT ME I LOOK TO KIMOREA SO I THINK SHES A GREAT PERSON SHE GOT ME OFF THE STREET SELLIN DRUGS AND BANGIN 4 SOME COLORS AND MAYBE SAVED MY LIFE I FEELS GOOD TO HAVE LITTLE GIRLS LOOK UP TO YOU AND THE MOM THINK YOUR A GOOD PERSON TO LOOK UP TO.

  • high fashion

    I think it is a very good thing that she is teaching them the business world at such a young age. Young colored kids need to know the business world. The colored kids/colored people are who the designers get all of their ideals from and market the clothes back to colored kids/colored people. It is nice to know that we have another colored family who is starting there kids in the business world. Kimora, kids are not the first colored kids with there clothing line. There is a clothing company called dvahs.com. Now that mother is the first colored woman to issue her daughters their own clothing line but you don’t hear about that in the news. They’re original and she designs and sew each and everyone of her items. I read about her and her daughters. She also use to model, she taught her daughters how to sew, design, market the products etc. It is nice to know that colored mothers are just as skilled as the white moms and are willing to make a change in the world. it is about time.

  • mizz Right

    All you people are a bunch of fu@%&ng loosers. Those two little girls didn’t do anything to anybody and, as far as Russell and Kimora are concerned he is a smart man if Kimora used him trust me he got what he wanted out the deal too. i can’t stand a bunch of people with no ambition who hate on those who made it. Kimora is that Bitch that cant be touched.

So 4 all of u who r saying the opposite ur wrong.

N-E-WAYZ all of u who r hatin i feel ur just jealin’ cause u dont have all the opportunities that 8 yr old Ming and 5 yr old Aoki have. SOOOOOOOOOOO………………..Just leave them alone!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • MsEnchanted0

    I know that’s right, cutie pie! I’M 35% iNDIAN AND 65% BLACK AN IM PROUD OF IT! Those kids are tooo cute and I LOOOOOOVVVEE there names. Ming looks just like me, funny. So I may think Ming is prettier, but Aoki is adorable, she looks just like her daddy :)

  • mSENCHAmted0

    OK, yall might hate me 4 sayin dis, but let’s start nicely: First I liked Ming more than Aoki, cuz I thought she was nicer and prettier (I was SOO judge mental,) next I liked them equally the same. Now..guess what? I Like Aoki more. In season 2, yall should see how stuck-up and saasy little Ming’s gotten! (tear). AND I LOOVE AOKI’S OUTGOINGNESS IT IT TOO CUTE!! I’ll love Ming as much as Aoki when I see her say something not sassy, and be more open-minded and not stuckup. I know im being soo judge mental, but I cant help myself. And Kimora, I loove kimora! I hope she doesnt have to pt up with ming’s sassiness…But I pray to God, it’ll get better.

  • http://JUSTJARED Faye

    I wouldn’t care about all this mess people are writing about the Simmons daughters. I thank the girls did a wonderful job and kimora is a respectful mother to her daughters. I wish other mothers can be like her to do whats best for their kids when they gets older. Establishing a business for the kids is a wonderful thing to do, I’M turning over a new leaf for 2009. I’ve began to design clothes for my granddaughter, and the tips kimora lee show gave has been a pitch for an idea for my granddaughter career. I thank the Simmons for all they have done to advance their daughters and many Americans who surrounds them. Keep up your godly work in your life that god has given you to do.

    Faye,
