Jewelry designer Simone I. Smith, wife of rapper-turned-actor LL Cool J, launched her new jewelry line, Simone I. Smith, at Bloomingdale's in Century City, CA yesterday. Normally I would have added "long suffering" to her name, but Simone wasn't thinking about LL and his cheating ways. Some would say she has low self esteem, but Simone was busy stacking her chips and raising the couple's three children until she could realize her dream of owning her own business. LL saw that she was a strong and independent woman, and he couldn't do anything but respect her.

Kelly Rowland is wearing a little too much pancake foundation. She's treading dangerously into tranny territory, and that is not kewt.
