Naomi Campbell Is Fierce For Elle

naomi campbell for elle

Have you heard about the new reality TV modeling show, ‘The Face‘? It’s hosted by former ‘America’s Top Model’ judge Nigel Barker. Naomi Campbell (don’t call her a supermodel) is one of the mentors on ‘The Face.’ She talked about the show as well as her past to Elle magazine. As you can see from these gorgeous Elle pictures, Naomi’s still got it as a model! I’m sure this interview and photoshoot occurred before Naomi was violently attacked in Paris. Hopefully she’s recuperating well! Here are some excerpts from her Elle interview.

On mentoring girls on Oxygen’s The Face: “When I first got Yves Saint Laurent couture, I didn’t know how to take off a cape. I would ask Katoucha and Dalma – the real divas of the runway – ‘Can you show me?’ I’ve never been afraid to ask for help… I care for my girls [on the show]. Every single one of them. I’m not here to put anyone down.”

On the infamous cell-phone-throwing incident: “I’m never gonna get away from it. It’s part of my history. I was remorseful and regretful. I’ve served. I did that time. And I never want to be in that position again.”

On if she watches Tyra Banks’ America’s Next Top Model: “I don’t watch the other reality model shows. I’ll never have anything to say. If you ask me about Tyra Banks, I’m proud of her as a woman of color. She’s given girls opportunity, and God bless her.”

You can read Naomi’s entire interview, and see more of her fierce photos, in the February issue of Elle, which hits newsstands on January 15.

Evan Rachel Wood Doesn’t Need A Stuntwoman!

evan rachel woods shoots 10 things i hate about life

Evan Rachel Wood spent the day at a faux amusement park yesterday! She’s still shooting her movie ‘10 Things I Hate About Life.’ Apparently this scene required Evan to climb out of a carousel buggy while up in the air. I wonder if the buggy malfunctioned in the movie or Evan’s character had truly had enough and wanted out STAT.

The more I think about the movie ’10 Things I Hate About Life,’ the more intrigued I become. I’m definitely keeping an eye out for the trailer. These days I’m starting to get to the point where adolescent existential angst isn’t all that interesting, but if it’s funny, I might be game. Are you interested even a little bit?

Which Celeb Divorce Could Get Ugly FAST? (Celeb Blind Items)

celebrity blind item

Normally, I’m not sure about these things. But I’d bet MONEY I know this couple! Here’s the goss:

The divorce of this TV Girl is going to get ugly! Besides the usual arguments over real estate and money and child custody, there is a nasty, threatening undertone of secrets just waiting to be served up on a hostile platter.

No,the secrets aren’t about drugs or hookers, although these are two issues that frequently surface in divorce cases. But this couple does have some good dirt on each other.

Here it is: She was unfaithful during the marriage. He has been hiding money. She has had plastic surgery. He told friends that he married her because he thought her fame would help his bottom line. She has a serious eating disorder. He had a gay encounter.

For now, as they try to work through the details of the divorce “amicably”, these secrets are being kept on the back burner. However, if one divulges a secret about the other, look for swift retaliation in the form of a counter-attack with some opposing dirt.

Who do you think? As I said, I’d be willing to actually bet I know the identity of this couple! And I had NO idea all of this was going on behind-the-scenes: O-M-G.

‘Glee’ Star Lea Michele Brightens Up Winter Press Tour Party

I look at Lea Michele in these pictures and think “ray of sunshine.” Between Lea’s megawatt smile and bright yellow outfit, she makes you think of anything besides winter. This actress belongs on a show called ‘Glee,’ that’s for sure! Here’s Lea at the Fox All-Star Party for the TCA Winter Press Tour.

I don’t see anyone else from the ‘Glee’ cast in the pictures, not even Lea’s boyfriend, Cory Monteith. Maybe they were all hard at work on set and Fox had to select just one cast member to attend. If so, you can see why they chose Lea. She looks fab: happy and tanned after her winter vacation.



Sarah Jessica Parker Hangs Out With Her Mini-Me’s

sarah jessica parker out and about with her daughters

Sarah Jessica Parker took her twin daughters, Tabitha and Marion, for a stroll yesterday afternoon in New York City. Well, the photo agency says they all went for a walk. It’s unseasonably warm, but I’m not sure you’d take out little ones like Tabitha and Marion for a walk. I’m guessing they were heading home from school.

I love how Sarah dresses her girls like little  girls rather than miniature adults. Lately I’ve seen a few episodes of TLC’s ‘Toddlers and Tiaras,’ and that’s what bothers me the most about these child beauty pageants. It’s one thing to dress them up like little girls. A lot of those contestants look like little women! SJP’s twins are adorable in an age-appropriate way.

Hot Guys Of The Day – Ben Affleck, Bradley Cooper, Daniel Craig & John Krasinski

national board of review awards gala 2013

There was no shortage of good looking guys out on the town last night! They seemed to congregate at the National Board of Review Awards Gala. Rather than choose just one, I decided to just select them all. So here’s Ben Affleck, Bradley Cooper, Daniel Craig, and John Krasinski, all looking HAWT on the red carpet.

Ben is busy doing his award campaigning in New York City while Jennifer Garner takes care of things on the home front. By now their kids must be used to having a parent gone much of the time! Bradley is crossing the country for his award campaigning right alongside Ben. They were both at the Palm Spring International Film Festival Awards just last weekend. They must have some serious frequent flyer miles if they aren’t using private jets.
