First Lady Michelle Obama Gets Fab+Russell Simmons' Open Letter To Kimora
May 07 | by Natasha
First Lady Michelle O. taped an episode of "Sesame Street" this week on her first official visit to New York. She said she was on a "major high" after. Loves it.
And she also stopped by a school on Cinco de Mayo to watch the kids perform for her:
Russell Simmons has written an open letter to his "babies' mama" Kimora. His words, not mine:
To all the fathers out there, it's almost Mother's Day, so you better start thinking about doing the right thing...Flowers, dinner, breakfast in bed, tuition, something special... Everyone knows Kimora Lee Simmons as a fashion model, author, the genius behind Baby Phat, President and creative director for Phat Fashions, philanthropist, reality television star, talk show host, top model judge…the list goes on and on. To me, she has been my partner, best friend, consultant, confidant and basically the greatest mother I could ever hope for, for my daughters. I feel so blessed to continue to have such a great personal and professional relationship with her. Every time I spend time with our girls, I credit her for giving them their manners, thoughtfulness, intelligence, beauty and kindness. A lot of you fathers, if you look deeply inside of yourself, you will find the support system in your baby’s mama, that allows you the freedom to sleep at night. Even though you are partly disconnected from the daily process of raising your children, you can trust that she’s getting the job done. So celebrate your baby’s mama, as I do! I know damn well, I’m grateful for my babies’ mama. Happy Mother's Day Kimora! You are loved, appreciated and celebrated! All my love, RussellWell that was nice Russey.
Awww. The First Lady then gave a speech to the U.S. Missions:
She recycled her Tracy Feith dress she wore on the Obamas' first day in office. And the day before, the First Couple celebrated Cinco de Mayo back at the White House (on the 4th of May actually) with the Mexican officials and others:
