Naomi On The Oprah Show: Talks Her Married Boyfriend, Her Temper, & Her Killer Body

Oprah had the baddest supermodel of them all, Naomi Campbell, on her show today.  O asked Naomi how she feels about her actions toward her housekeepers and assistants and cab drivers--all of whom she has lashed out on physically.  And Naomi opened up with tears and fears, and exposed a side we rarely see.

 

Snippets and recaps when you read on...

 

 

When asked about physically going off on people in her life, Naomi's response:

"I take responsibility for the things that I have done and I do feel a great sense of shame. I feel remorseful. I feel ashamed. I feel for them...[I think,] 'What have I done to them?' If I've hurt them."

The almost 40-year-old model tells, "I think it comes from a deeper place than that," she says. "It comes from another type of emotional disorder, because it's not just, 'I don't get what I want. I throw...It comes from, I think, an abandonment issue... just trying to build up a family around me that's not my immediate family.”

Naomi also revealed her mother left her for a while after she had her at 19. Both her mother and boyfriend Vladimir were in the audience.

 

Oprah asked Vladimir about still being married to his "wife". Vlad responded that they have been separated for 10 years. And Naomi added that she now calls Moscow, Russia home (his hometown) and she is "friends" with the wife and the daughter.

 

Na talked about keeping her body in tip top position, much of which she credits to "good bones from her mother" and her fitness crazed boyfriend. She says Vlad tells her not to eat the bread at the table, and she works out. She's spent 18 days on the master cleanse (lemon pepper diet) recently and does it 3 times a year.

At the end of their talk, O had her sign the "No Phone Throwing" pledge as well as the "No Phone Zone" pledge. Funny ish. O told her she's far too pretty on the outside for her "inside" not to match.  One of the most revealing and good interviews I've seen Naomi do.

Why can't all these people on

Why can't all these people on here bashing Naomi admit they were wrong? Her boyfriend is front and center in her life, she's no side chick like many of you claimed she was or homewrecker and he cared enough about her image to make that clear on national television. Of course Naomi has emotional issues, why else would she act that way? I buy it because the chick clearly snaps. hell, if she'd said she suffers from multiple personalities I wouldn't doubt it, that would fit too!

I like Noami but bitch

I like Noami but bitch please! Why show remorse now after all these years and all the people she has verbally and physically abused?! Stop with those crocodile tears! Who wants to make bets on when she will put some hands on someone again?! She has a live/career anyone would kill for yet she acts like a brat and treats people like sh*t she needs to get her life together!

If most of you were in her

If most of you were in her shoes you would do the same thing, people will do anything for money, at least she is doing it for a billionaire! It's funny how a lot you are bashing her when half of you didn't even see the whole interview. Obviously she has passed the drama phase and is better spirits because of her new found happiness. And to the ppl talking smack about him being seperated for ten years and still married, Did it ever occur to you that maybe he doesn't want to loose half his money? Who gives of fuck She is Gorgeous, happy with a new attitude and is with a billionaire that spoils her. Quit Hating!!!!

Naomi may be the baddest

She's gorgeous but has

She's gorgeous but has terrible low self esteem, always had. That is why she stays with a man who won't divorce his wife and commit to her. If a man loves you enough, nothing will stop him from making you his wife. The guy is obviously very smart and capable of striking a reasonable deal with the enstranged wife if he wanted to. He doesn't. He wants to have his cake and eat it too. I don't care how long he's been separated for, he is still married. It is a very bad look for Naomi to be carvoting around with him as if he were single. It portrays her in a very bad light. As for all of you saying we should be proud of Naomi and not judge her harshly because she landed a white billionnaire. . .Shame on you.

He cannot divorce his wife

He cannot divorce his wife because he if he did he would lose a very large part of his immense fortune, that's what you dreamers don't realize.It's not about love, because I'm sure he adores and worships Naomi it's about money. If I were him and met the man of my dreams I would not jeopardize my fortune for him. It's about being realistic and grounded. Bottom line.

Are you serious??!!!! This

Are you serious??!!!! This man is a BILLIONAIRE! So what if he has to give his wife half. He would still have plenty. When he dies, he can't take all of his material possessions and money to the grave with him. It truly amazes me that people rather hold on to money ad things that they possibly can't spend in this lifetime, instead of finding love. The last time I checked, money (millions, billions, trillions, or zillions) doesn't make you happy.

I watched her interveiw with Oprah and to me she seems like a spoiled british brat. Yes she has broken many milestones in the fashion industry but it's like nobody can't tell her NO! And to sit there and broadcast that she's been dating a married man for two years? Cocaine is a hellava drug.

I don't believe that she is

I don't believe that she is living a "fabulous life". Yes we see the glitz and the glam, but clearly Naomi is crazy. I think the industry has jacked her up mentally. She's a known coke head, she abuses her staff, and now she's publicly confessing her love for some married white man who will NEVER marry her. We can be proud of her accomplishments in the fashion industry and be mesmerized by her beauty, but her personal life seems to be a mess.

Ok, Not found of Naomi but I

Ok, Not found of Naomi but I do think that all it will take is for someone to actually put a foot in her a_ _ her behind would be put in check once and for all. Basically all her little temper tant has not happened to the right person becuase all it will take is one good ole fashioned beat down & her attitude will change for the better thus far all she does what she wants & nothing really happens (the work realease fashion show was a joke)

Naomi is THAT BITCH! She is

Naomi is THAT BITCH! She is simply THE BADDEST in the game!!! That's one of the reasons controversy surrounds her...let's face it... she is an interesting person to watch. None of the other supermodels rarely get any media attention and before you say it, I know some of you are thinking that Naomi gets negative press but think about it... the media wants to point out her flaws because they know that this is one Beautiful Black Woman that they can't take down otherwise. They never talk about her charities i.e. AIDS Awareness, Hurricane Katrina Victims, Anti Abuse against women). They delight in when she f*cks up but they can't stop her! I love this woman with all of her flaws. As for her dating a married man separated from his wife... How is that any different from Oprah dating a man she refuses to marry? Bow down to royalty and respect the Queen of the Fashion Scene cause she ain't going nowhere.

Anyone who condones Naomi and

Anyone who condones Naomi and her married boyfriend's arrangement, obviously doesn't know what LOVE is. If this man TRULY loved Naomi and TRULY wanted to be with her, he would divorce his wife. Period! So what if he has to give her half, he still wouldn't be broke. Naomi is PLAYING herself. Why in the he'll would you want any man who is still attatched to another woman? He's getting his cake and eating it too, but Naomi (and his wife) are settling for some BS. They are giving this man too much power.

Ever heard the term "cheaper

Ever heard the term "cheaper to keep her"? Do you guys have any idea how much it costs a multi-billionaire to make his wife go away if he made all that money during the marriage? HALF OF EVERYTHING. If the three people involved in the situation are cool with it, then why are everyone else' panties in a bunch? I was dissapointed in the way Oprah handled this interview bc she only focused on the negative. What about the fact that Naomi is 40 years old and still dominating the high fashion modeling world. It's not everyday that one of the world's top designers makes exclusive clothing for a black woman. Nor is it everyday that a white billionaire treats a black woman like a queen! Black millionaires don't even date black women all that much let alone black male billionaires let alone white ones. HATS OFF NAOMI for that one. I found it interesting that Oprah was so surprised that Naomi only gets ultra-rich men. She is a rich supermodel. Average supermodels get rich men so what the hell did Oprah think a rich supermodel would attract?! Would Oprah be with Stedman if he worked at Fedex? Hell Naw. Equal or better.

I TOTALLY AGREE W/U!! What I

I TOTALLY AGREE W/U!! What I really can't take is Oprah tryna grill ANYONE about anything that has to do w/their dating life, bc Oprah and Stedman's "arrangement" is one of the weirdest unhealthiest coupledoms that I've seen in a long time. We all know Oprah has weight, emotional, dating, insecurity issues, so I found it strange, and a little hater-ish of her to have Naomi on in a mostly negative focused interview. I'm so over Oprah at this point. Def time for her to hang it up bc she keeps f'in up on these interviews esp Black ones.

Some people on here really

Some people on here really need to get some or have a fucking drink or smoke a cigarette hell go sniff some coke! Whatever it will take for you to relax...you talk about Naomi Campbell like her personal life is a real issue affecting the world. People sleep with married men every day I am sure its happening in your neighborhood as we speak...I bet some of the people trying to leave judgemental comments have slept with a married man or 2 thats why they feel so passionately about it...Live YOUR life and quit idolizing celebrities so much to the point where their personal life makes you really feel some kind of way....hated it!

Amen to that! Maybe if people

Amen to that! Maybe if people stopped living vicariously through celebrities, they wouldn't feel so angry/offended at everything a celebrity does. Naomi is filthy rich, living the good life with an amazing, wealthy man and now matter how much people hate on her, it ain't changing shit. She's still going to be gorgeous, rich Naomi Campbell.

I hate to say this, and God

I hate to say this, and God forgive for judging others, but I wouldn't be surprised if a couple years from now we found out he was beating her behind. There's something about some of these white dudes in power when they get with ethnic women..like an extreme power trip. And she looks so desperate for love she would probably stay.

Naomi is the only supermodel

Naomi is the only supermodel of the 90s who is still relevant. Christy and Linda are nowhere to be found! She's the best!!
RihannasBowlCut's picture

I agree you. they hate her

I agree you. they hate her out of envy because she is beautiful, youthfull looking, hardworking and she can fight for herself. the difference between M.Jackson and Naomoi Campbell is that she can fight back when something or someone insults her dignity while M.J loves people to death even the ppl that greatly abused him and are still abusing him after death. Naomi has no problems. they always want to move black people of substance into a class with a bad name because it is easier to distroy a person if you start by destroying their reputation. Naomi is fighting back for her rights and dignity and they hate her for fighting back and escaping every prison traps they want her in.

Once again, a lot of you posters and Tasha show your bias! So it's okay for Naomi to be living with and dating a married man but yet Alicia and Gabby are homewreckers. GIVE ME A F****IN break! You people are so inconsistent with your ish, it's laughable. This is why I always check the Gabby and AKeys haters because you don't even know what you stand for.

I co-sign 100% Im not a fan

I co-sign 100% Im not a fan of Gabby or Akeys. What made me mad was they way they DOGGED Mashonda, telling her to "move on." But, when Tasha posted pics of Shaunie O'Neal with her handsome young boo, then ppl started tearing into Shaunie saying she shouldnt be dating, she got 5kids, she setting a bad example. Which is it? Do you want the SCORNED wives to move on or b1tch about if over twitter? They tore Tameka Raymond a new @sshole too when she was b1tching bout Usher via twitter. Naomi is NOT rite for dating a married man. If divorce proceeding were in progress I wouldnt have ntg to say. But both of them were grinning like it was cool. Vlad's wife is NOT cool with it. They could pay me $1million & I still wouldnt believe his wife was cool with this foolishness
