Brinson — better known as the fiance of Miami Heat star LeBron James — is starting to step more into the public eye now, with hopes that whatever level of celebrity she has can be a tool to help children who need some assistance. Her first step in that endeavor was helping to provide prom dresses for about 100 underprivileged girls in her current home of Miami and her hometown of Akron, Ohio, doing so at a pair of events in recent days. "I can't imagine being in their situation and not have somebody help," said Brinson, whose wedding is scheduled for this summer. "I really care. It's really in my soul to help people, and this is the first baby to come from it. There comes a time when you have to give back." Minneapolis Star-Tribune

She admits it took her some time to warm to the idea of life in South Beach. "Personally, Miami was not my favorite place. Vacationing there is great: You go for three days and get some sun, and it's time to go home," she explains. But the weather helped win her over. "When they told me it doesn't get any colder than 50 degrees, that sold me. We get below-zero weather in Cleveland. ... I can't wait to have a sunny Christmas," she says. "It will definitely be an adjustment, but we'll make it. We're not complaining." Harper's BAZAAR

"Whatever LeBron felt was comfortable, I'm with him," she continues. "I just love him so much. We're soul mates." It's just such devotion that makes James gush about his longtime love. "A person like myself always needs a great sidekick and a person you can rely on no matter the circumstances. And she's that," he says. "She's got my back, and I love her for that." While James settles in on his new home court, Brinson plans to split her time between Miami and Akron. She didn't want to uproot her sons—LeBron Jr., five, and Bryce Maximus, three—from their neighborhood, where LeBron Jr. will be starting kindergarten in the fall. "Cleveland is home," she says. "Nothing is going to change about that." Harper's BAZAAR

Some cynics might argue that long distance and superstar athlete equals disaster. And if VH1's hit series Basketball Wives is to be believed, Miami groupies are as gorgeous as they are aggressive. Fresh from the Midwest and flush with cash, James could be quite the target. (His Miami signing deal reportedly netted him $110 million over six years, as well as an estimated $30 million in endorsements from brands like Nike.) But Brinson isn't nervous about their partnership. "I'm not worried," she declares, sounding assured. "We're good. Our relationship is good." Her mother, Jennifer, who has been minding the kids while Brinson talks, makes a good point: "Don't you think he knows the difference between ruthlessness and love?" she asks. "If LeBron was going to do something shady, he can do that around the corner. He doesn't have to go to Miami." Harper's BAZAAR
