Denise Vasi v. Kimora Lee Simmons, as played out at Lucire 

I never thought this blog would go around rivalling and columns, but I hear that won’t appear in a feature (she gets into the ‘Scene’ pages, however). I understand from Lucire’s editor-in-chief that director Brad Batory on our team asked. The reason? Our first (public) print edition cover girl, , is the young lady who’s now seeing her estranged husband, .
   It seems Mrs Simmons feels she would be following in Miss Vasi’s footsteps, and she doesn’t want to do that, though if I were her, I’d see it along these lines: Lucire is better today than it was in November 2004. So in its evolution, it now goes for Kimora Lee.
   Mind you, I know Denise, and she’s one of the most charming and delectable creatures on the planet. There’s no way I’d diss her ever, because in my circles, she’s never been anything but a top lady and a great . And I admit that she has the same effect on men as lava has on a Ben & Jerry’s ice-cream.
   Naturally she was one of our guests at our anniversary party last year in New York, being our first cover girl. (There was also some pride from that we débuted with a .) And it seems to indicate that Lucire has as much luck in spotting in print as we always had online. It’s the old “Lucire cover blessing” that held online for years.
   It’s hard not to take sides here when one party doesn’t want to appear, even though we have given Kimora Lee and her company (the Simmons Jewelry Company—I even Americanize my spelling for her) a huge boost in our shoots and in our news coverage. C’mon, lass, you’ll be great in our pages. Remember the Lucire cover blessing.

Hey, Jack.

I hope Simmons eventually changes her mind. At the same time, I suspect she'll do fine without experiencing the benefits of the Lucire cover blessing. Hell, she could retire now as the ex-Mrs. Russell Simmons and make more money than any of us. That she continues to build her own empire is a tribute to her true gifts.  
It’s quite true, Highjive. Mrs Simmons is a force unto herself, and it certainly takes brains and guts to get to where she is. Still, it would be nice to see her in our pages in a feature rather than our usual social pics. Personally, I admire her as a businesswoman (and the fact she is pleasant to look at is a huge bonus).  
damn she's smokin!  
Denise looks even better in person, Markoos. She’s around 5'7" or 5'8", from memory, which makes her even cuter and more real. None of that fake statuesque ice-queen nonsense: this lady is warm and charming. I have not met Mrs Simmons and I would never compare the two, but I will say Denise has an aura about her.  
shes a black girl with green eyes. great.  
She's literally the most striking woman I've ever seen. Some people may not consider her the most beautiful in the world because everyone has different opinions. But her features are so...just striking there's no other way to put it. BTW She's the most beautiful woman I've ever seen.
