Kimora constantly promotes herself, talking tirelessly about her clothing lines. She also enjoys showing off her expensive homes, diamond jewelry, and other expensive luxuries (like her custom-made Bentley convertible). Other "fun" moments include driving around Los Angeles in a bikini, mansion shopping in Beverly Hills, and obnoxiously ordering her employees around. Along for the ride are her daughters, 4-year-old Aoki and 7-year-old Ming. (Not surprisingly, Kimora's usually polite girls sometimes like to imitate their mother's less-than-ideal behavior when talking to the household staff.)

Fab Lane isn't particularly exciting, and Kimora's diva-like attitude and passion for material wealth definitely reinforce some questionable values. But the series does offer some positive messages, too. Kimora's strong work ethic and savvy business sense make her an influential figure in both the fashion industry and in the African-American community. She embraces her multiethnic heritage and has a surprisingly healthy attitude about her body, despite the fact that she's no longer a size 2. And while she isn't perfect, she dotes on her children and clearly enjoys being a mom.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
