Ms. Fabulosity, Kimora Lee Simmons, has reduced the price of her 35,000-square-foot home in Saddle River, NJ, to $16.5 million.

The 10-bedroom, 11-bathroom spread on 4 acres was listed for $23 million last year before it was taken off the market. It later returned at $19.8 million before the latest reduction, says broker Stephanie Rosken of Prominent Properties Sothebys International Realty.

The Baby Phat fashion designer, ex-reality TV star and former wife of music mogul Russell Simmons recently shipped most of the furniture in the New Jersey home to a new manse in Beverly Hills. We hear that if she sells in Saddle River, she plans to buy a Manhattan residence. She is the mother of three children, including her new son, Kenzo Lee, fathered by actor/model Djimon Hounsou.

SADDLE DOWN: Kimora Lee Simmons (inset) hopes to find a buyer at $16.5M.
The Saddle River house is on a gated estate that includes four koi ponds with waterfalls. It boasts a movie theater, a gym (with a steam room), indoor and outdoor pools and a pool house. Theres also a 2,000-square-foot master suite (bigger than many apartments) and three kitchens one for the staff, one for everyday use and one for catered events.

This is the house she did the MTV Cribs episode in. I believe the dinner service shown in the dining room pic belonged to the late Gianni Versace.

Do we care?

Do we care?

I'm sure I would if I just knew who Kimora Lee Simmons is?
Oh well...

RE: Russell Simmons-still for sale

Kimora Lee Simmons is owner/part owner of the clothing brand Baby Phat. She had a show on one of the cable channels called Fabulous IIRC.

Back when I sold my house there was another post about her, her ex Russell Simmons & Russell's brother, all of which were selling their houses IIRC.

Do we care? IDK, nice to know they are having to adjust the pricing on their houses too.

That's quite the monstrosity.

I'll pass.

RE: Russell Simmons-still for sale

I love big showy houses!

Though I'd say the exterior on this one is particularly unimaginative.

Indeed, I have recurrent dreams about massive homes. In one, my home is a wing of a high-end shopping mall. This way, mrs worthy has only to roll out of bed to break the bank, instead of all that schlepping two miles up the road.

In another, I suddenly remember a mansion I started but lost track of a year ago. Probably relates to the clients who ran out of money for a few months, so everything came to a halt!

Love the gym, indoor pool and the theatre.

And now I know why the Phat clothes my daughter wears cost so bloody much! (I'm a Target kind of guy.)

Take a look (and here) at the highest price spec home in our neck of the woods: 30,000 s.f., asking C$23 million. If it doesn't sell, the builder will retain it as his own home.
