So, like any other celebrity, she took to her blog to make it crystal clear that she did it in a healthy way.
I just wanted to take a moment to address a story about my recent weight loss that began circulating today. This story led people to believe that I shed 25 lbs by not eating, which is completely ridiculous. I am a mother of three young children, two of whom are girls and I’m trying to raise them with a healthy body image. It’s taken me almost a year to lose close to 25 lbs and I did it through healthy diet and exercise. So yes, I’m a bit smaller, but still curvy and 100% healthy and proud of my body and the time it has taken me to undergo this personal journey for myself. I’m not one of those “superstar moms” who lost all their baby weight in a week. So, yes, I’m upset about the innuendo because I just can’t win. In the past year there have been numerous rumors about my weight — first I was attacked for being a size 10, now I’m anorexic? I’m a real woman and I represent real women. I believe that people are beautiful at any size, color or weight. The way this article was promoted is unfortunate — what a silly way to sensationalize a story, especially when you know young people will be reading it. There must be more accountability in reporting, especially considering the far reaching impact on girls and young women who are exposed to this kind of misleading information on a daily basis. What kind of example is that setting for them?
We're glad she did the responsible thing by clarifying her original statement and for being healthy!

So when her items go on auction in the next few months at Christie’s, expect to see millions of dollars worth of jewelry going for sale.
And among those eager to get a piece of the collection is Kimora Lee Simmons. Reveals the fashion diva:
"All my life I have said this, I'm so emotional about Liz Taylor. My whole life I have really patterned after Elizabeth. She's always been my icon. If you think about it, I can explain it forever.”
And Kimora goes further, talking about Liz, her love life, fragrance and more. Adds KLS about Taylor:
"First she had 165 husbands, I love it. I have a good one now but I'm not against having 165 if I could. Think about my first fragrance. It's the shape of a diamond shell with the ring around it. All that came from Elizabeth Taylor because it's about giving you a fragrance that is lush and giving you a little something extra. With her you get a little dream or a gift on the side, I'm the same."
As for the jewelry, Kimmy adds:
"I built my entire jewelry collection with her in mind. I will definitely go and bid. The last time I went to an auction I came home with all Versace stuff. I got a lot of it. I was probably the biggest buyer. I got his bed, DNA are in those sheets!"
We’ll have to wait and see how much Kimora will spend.
But on a positive note, proceeds from the auction will go towards benefiting the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation and amfAR.

Fashionista and diva Kimora Lee Simmons is known for many things, including wearing high-end designer named brands.
But even the rich like to save a buck or two, and it seems like Kimora feels the same way.
Simmons was spotted shopping at the 99 Cent Only Store on Wilshire Blvd in Los Angeles.
And she wasn’t alone.
Joining Miz Simmons was her beau Djimon Hounsou and her kiddies.
We like the fact the Kimora doesn't mind heading to the local discount store. You don't stay rich by wasting your money away!

Russell Simmons is following in his ex-wife Kimora Lee's footsteps and heading to the small screen.
On Tuesday night's season premiere of Running Russell Simmons, the cameras are rolling at the photo shoot for Russel's new clothing line Argyleculture and none other than model eye candy Tyson Beckford is there — shirtless!
Check out the deliciousness in the clip, above, and be sure to tune in to Running Russell Simmons Tuesday's on Oxygen!
While most of the fashion insiders are up in New York for Fashion Week, Kimora Lee Simmons was in Hollywood yesterday.
And the former model was spotted scarfing down some chili cheese fries at Pink’s Hotdogs. We’re hoping that coke next to her is diet!
But it’s nice to see that even though she tries to stay fairly thin, every once in a while Kimo can go out and scarf down some hot dogs and chili fries.
As Kimora’s said before, “Since when is it an issue to be a size 10?”
