After being approached by TMZ while in Hollywood, California this week, Russell Simmons was asked to share his thoughts on Geraldo Rivera’s comments about Hip Hop being “destructive culturally.” According to Simmons, who Rivera referred to as “a dear friend” during his interview with Huffington Post Live, the real problem lies with the prison-industrial complex and “jail culture.” In regards to Rivera, the Def Jam Records co-founder suggested that due to his recent loss on “Celebrity Apprentice,” the Fox News contributor needs to stay relevant in some way or another. He hasn’t done shit to help nobody in a very long time. But he’s not relevant no more.” While appearing on Huffington Post Live this week, Rivera stated that, “Hip Hop has done more damage to black and brown people than racism in the last 10 years,” and continued to criticize the Hip Hop community.
“Geraldo, the prison-industrial complex got people so twisted,” Russell Simmons said. He needs to get himself relevant…He used to be a progressive. “I love Russell Simmons, he’s a dear friend of mine,” Rivera said during his interview. At some point, those guys have to cop to the fact that by encouraging this distinctive culture that is removed from the mainstream, they have encouraged people to be so different from the mainstream that they can’t participate other than the racks in the garment center, those entry-level jobs.

Enough said.” When asked if she had any remorse about the public break-up from Russell, Katie clarified that she has made peace with her ex, “I love everything about Russell Simmons and Kimora and how he handles himself as a friend, a mentor, a businessman, and a civil rights advocate. Don’t regret a thing.” Since Katie still has Russ on speed dial, it sounds like the two have made up – probably minus the kissing.
No, no, no people, I’m not going to hate on Julie Henderson! (I’m more partial to the ethnic look, but to each their own.)”“If I make broad and ridiculous statements about entire groups of people, if I criticize someone for aspects that are not fully encompassing our respectful to there true self, which is a divine being, a child of God, a vessel of love and light….. Well, the former model is sticking by her words, “I own everything I do. I have a right to be happy and sad and everything in between.
Porshche is the daughter of Peter, and is apparently hooking up with Simmons because she appeared in an image with him.
There’s really no evidence outside of the image to substantiate claims of a romance, and there’s a reason for that: there isn’t one.
