As she opens up to Oprah Winfrey about her fiery temper.
Naomi Campbell burst into tears as she sat down for a heart-to-heart on TV with Oprah Winfrey.
The talkshow special promised “an emotional hour” in which Naomi “opens up about it all” — including “the controversy” of her angry outbursts. Oprah does not hold back on the supermodel, at one point asking her: “Are you just a petulant diva?”
And she also cheekily got Naomi to sign a “No Phone-Throwing Zone” promise, a play on Oprah’s “No Phone Zone” pledge to not text and drive. With her mother Valerie and boyfriend Vladimir Doronin in the audience, Campbell, 39, opened up about recent incidents. These have included walking out of an ABC News interview when asked about reports of a “blood diamond” allegedly given to her by former Liberian president Charles Taylor, and also her reported fight with her driver in New York earlier this year.
During the interview, which aired on Monday, Oprah asked her: “Whether it’s a cab driver or somebody on a plane or your own housekeeper and you don’t get immediately what you want, you said you see red,” to which Naomi replied, “Yes.” Naomi then admitted that she instantly feels remorseful after having an outburst.
She added: “I feel remorseful. I feel ashamed. I feel for them. [I think] ‘What have I done to them?’ If I’ve hurt them.”
