First Lady Michelle Obama Gets Fab+Russell Simmons' Open Letter To Kimora

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, Russell
Well 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:

Nice.

Why is even a story on Kimora

Why is even a story on Kimora attached onto the First Lady she deserves (the first lady) to have her own story not with the likes of kimora and russ, because who cares about K & R.

Quick Question Russ... Why is

Quick Question Russ... Why is paying tuition "doing something special"? And given that Kimora was your wife, why are we regressing to a highschool teenanger and calling her your "babbies momma"? Realy?! I don't to much care for Kimora but she does deserve more respect then that. On another note Love the picks of the first Lady....awesome!! But Tasha...where the f*** are the oh so fab pics of the First Lady at the Times Award Dinner? I'd rather see that.

I love our first lady!!!!!

I love our first lady!!!!! :) Now on to Russell I also think his heart was in the right place. Rather one would want him to call her his ex-wife etc. the truth of the matter is she is his babaies mom like it or not. I promise when I read some of the comments on here I'm so amazed how judgemental some of you are. It seems as if some of you may need to get a real life and stop living vicariously through celeberties. I will now get off my soap box!! :)

NO HATE!!!: Nice letter but

NO HATE!!!: Nice letter but he could’ve said “mother of his children” rather than “baby mama” i mean damn a little more respect and credit than that Russ! She WAS your wife at one point! THANK YOU JESUS! I thought I was the only one that hated the term "baby Mama" and "Baby Daddy", it makes my skin crawl! How about my child's mother or his/her father? We have to take at least one step out of the ghetto people.

He could've even said Ex-wife. I swear I hate the words "baby mama" and "baby daddy." Those words SCREAM ghetto and uncivilized. Even though Russy and Kimora are not ghetto I just hate when people say those words. Maybe Russy was trying to reach out to the hood or disrespect her on the cool. I can almost bet Kimora would not want to be called a "babies mama." WTF?

The letter was very nice.

The letter was very nice. Maybe Russ realize what he had and what he is missing. Every since the divorce Russ being dating different women so apparently he is not happy...so reality has sat in.

I love Mrs. O and I think

I love Mrs. O and I think it's cool that she recycled a dress... She and Prez don't seem like they are all that into celebrity as past presidents and well celebrities... We are living in tough times and they are not leaving outside of what's necessary... Of course they are rich and can have things we can't but they don't flaunt and that's respectful of them... I LOVE THEM!

Why oh why must you criticize

Why oh why must you criticize a man who's giving the mother of his children praise? Can't he just have this moment to give Kimora a shout out? If more men showed love and respect towards their women perhaps you wouldn't smell a rat. Based on his income Kimora got a huge chunk of the pie from the divorce. Thing is she learned the business can you fault her for that? Russ doesn't! Kimora should be praised especially by celebrity wives and girlfriends.Things didn't end nasty for them and there's nothing wrong with that. Mother's Day, showing respect, love, adoration nothing negative should be taken from that. WhoeverUWantMe2B: LMAO! I swear I was thinking something along those lines! LMAO!

Nikki: Kimora always used

Nikki: Kimora always used to call Russy her ‘baby daddy’ when they were married on her talk show. That’s waaaaaay more disrespectful than this. And he’s being nice cuz she acts like a beeeyyyotch! That may just be how they refer to each other...he's an @$$hole and she's a bitch...match made in heaven or so I thought...

cmon russ, can u please?!

cmon russ, can u please?! lets refrain from all these praises of kimoras mothering skills, thank you! did anyone see that awards show when the girls were on stage w/ russell???!!! they have NO manners and they DO NOT know how to act. NO DAMN HOME TRAINING. i dont know if all that organic crap is altering russell's senses (because hes clearly not thinking properly), but he and kimora need to evaluate their girls' behavior and consider some readjustments! etiquette class? a west indian nanny? a belt!?

Love Michelle O! Russy, I don't know, that letter seems contrived. Why publish that on line, it seems like a show (but this family is weird anyway.) I feel like beneath the surface, Russell is secretly happy, now that he can live out his "real lifestyle." (wink, wink)

TaDAH!: I’m sorry blood

TaDAH!: I’m sorry blood russ, Kimora is not the business. Even if that show “life in the Fab Lane” os just an act, you shouldn’t let your kids see you even act that way. She says you gotta give her 40g’s a month for them babiee, yet she is the president of Phat and owns Baby fat? Does she have a sex tape of you doing it to to diddy or something like that? cause you’re constantly coming to this woman’s defense and publicly making sure we know she’s a good mom. I smell a .
