As if she weren?t busy enough plugging her new book ?Fabulosity,? Baby Phat entrepreneur Kimora Lee Simmons has also had to defend herself against recent rumors that her marriage to Def Jam co-founder Russell Simmons was more business-related than personal, and that the two are headed for divorce. In this month?s Vibe Vixen cover story, Simmons denies that her marriage is one of convenience. She says: “One thing my marriage is not is convenient. I am inconvenienced as sh**! Russell and I have been together 14 years. That’s a long time – almost half my life.” Simmons says she and her man have had their share of drama, but the tiffs are not unlike those of any other married couple. “The things we go through are very regular things that regular people in Middle America go through,” she says. ?But because of my lifestyle or the logistics of it all, it’s probably magnified those things. But they are the same problems and the same situations.” The Baby Phat mogul also believes she?s been given a bad rap for freely flaunting her extravagant lifestyle. She says: “Look, Queen Elizabeth has more diamonds than me. Why don’t people attack her for it? .While they were telling NBA players to take off their medallions for game days, why don’t they tell the Pope not to wear his medallion to work?” Meanwhile, Simmons new book, ?Fabulosity,? is in stores this week with 272 pages of personal tips and empowerment stories to help women from all walks of life succeed. “I wrote this book to hopefully inspire other women to tap into their own fabulosity,” Simmons told AllHipHop.com. “I believe all women owe it to themselves to be sexy, strong, independent thinkers.”
