Sudden Bachelor of the Week YEAR: Russell Simmons
For those of you who don’t know who he is, step your game up. Among other things, Russell is a media and fashion mogul, activist and yogi. Through the years, he’s also been known as quite the ladies man. Here’s a guy who knows how to work hard and play hard – balance. Years ago, single guys across the globe were shocked to learn that Mr. Simmons aka Uncle Rush decided to settle down and become a married man, yes, change is inevitable.
Fellas were used to seeing him in pictures or at parties, jet setting with a bevy of assorted fly model chicks – living the life, living the life most single (and married) guys wanted. But now, he was with just one fly model – his wife. The ultimate playboy, now a happily married man, showed guys that life doesn’t stop once you get married, in fact it can get better (really, it can!). Thanks to Russ, being married became the new cool. But once again, change is inevitable. After years of marriage, sadly his came to an end.
Now for the average guy, the end of a long marriage / relationship would likely leave you in shambles: depressed, lonely, broke, hungry (hence the reason Sudden Bachelor exists), but we are talking about Russell Rush here – not the average man. Instead of laying around his apartment amidst empty pizza boxes, Russ is laying around the beach. Instead of having a pity party, Russell is AT the party.
Russell entered the world of sudden bachelorhood with full force – embracing it. He’s still a mogul, activist, yogi and yes, family man– but now he’s also a sudden bachelor – one that leads by example, one that we can be proud of. For that, we name Russell Simmons Sudden Bachelor of the Year! So sudden bachelors, take note: You can make the choice to NOT be miserable. That’s right, you have the choice. Go ahead, have some fun – be the mogul you always wanted to be. As Uncle Rush says “Do You.”
