TWEET HEAT: Kimora Lee Simmons sure knows how to whip her fan base into a complete frenzy. When Simmons used Twitter late last week to reveal that she was exiting Phat Fashions, the division of Kellwood Co., many of the 189,668 followers were surprised, and some even in total despair over the departure, expected to be effective Sept. 1. Kellwood declined comment.

Simmons, who was president and creative director of Phat Fashions, with labels such as Phat Farm and Baby Phat, also declined to comment on the reasons for the split on Twitter, though that didn’t stop her from continuing to tweet in her usual dramatic manner about it. “Sometimes we have limited choices in life,” she tweeted. “We have 2 RIDE the WAVE baby! Team FABULOSITY!”

The television personality and former model, who was once married to Russell Simmons, isn’t likely to say goodbye to fashion, though. “We still have lots of beautiful things to do 2gether!” she tweeted. “Hold on! Can’t hold Team Fabulosity Down!!!” she added. “Like Dust....We Rise!”
