Kimora talks with Giant

On Marriage:
“When you get married, you’re forced to drink the milk long after it’s spoiled.”

On Tabloid Talk:
“I hear the craziest things, like, ‘She has to have a champagne glass filled within a quarter inch of the lip,’ ” says Simmons, who dismisses any notion that she might be an “extreme diva.”

On Kids & TV:
“The reality, is I’m a dedicated mother [to daughters Ming Lee, 8, and Aoki Lee, 5] and a very kind, funny and hardworking person. My reality-TV show helps to shed a bit of light, but even that’s glamorized.”

On the Haters & Life:
“Sometimes people who don’t know me say really cruel things that are way off base. But you can’t care too much about what people think of you. You have to establish your own set of core values and live by them. Do your best, and live with the repercussions of your choices – good or bad.”
