I believe the answer to this seemingly inexplicable attraction lies in the great liberal concept of affirmative action. Simmon's label, Phat Farm, has always appealed more to the more deeply colored American population. His relationship with Henderson is a bold, socially responsible effort to reach out to the pigment-challenged. It's just shallow and small of you to suggest it has anything to do with gorgeous young bodies or vast wads of cash.
Pale brothers and sisters, you too can ditch your stuffy Brooks Bros, your dreary Donna Karan, and step out proud and sassy! Do like our new President, get some swaggah in your step and some color in your clothes. An iPod full of hip-hop and a welfare check may have seemed out of reach, but in these hopey-changey days, miracles can happen!Posted by askmom at May 20, 2009 6:29 AM
.....lemme see, he has cheerios front and center?
Seinfeld, in BLACK?
I would say the venerable Mr. Simmons is a
rack man. Heh
I'd say Ms. Henderson has a full rack of advantages.Posted by MarkH at May 20, 2009 7:57 AM
meh ... straight commercial arrangement:
charms for ka-ching.
Obviously blonde hair and blue eyes do
not a lady make. It's certainly true
that all ladies are women, but the converse
is off the board.
As to your point: Yes, it is culturally sad.Posted by Robert at May 20, 2009 1:30 PM
Everybody believes in evolution until it applies to them.
The laws of evolution dictate that women who look like her can do whatever they want, whenever they want.

Breeding's about the only thing she's good for. Breed, yes, let her raise my offspring(s), no. Good body, nothing between them ears.Posted by Blademonkey at May 20, 2009 6:53 PM
Honestly, I don't get it, either. Why would Simmons want to spend a single moment with this Henderson gal when he could take up with a woman like this?
I mean, really?Posted by Donald Sensing at May 20, 2009 7:57 PM
"Good body, nothing between them ears."
1. Those grapes are sour anyway.
2. Prove it. By my standards she's damn smart, using her looks to acquire money, power and fame. What you got to match?
Nope. Losers. Elk with busted antlers and inferior females. If any.Posted by Fred Z at May 21, 2009 8:47 AM
Huh. Everyone has their excuse for being a hedonist. I can only guess Henderson's and Fred's.Posted by RiverC at May 21, 2009 2:49 PM
