The Face premieres February 12th on the Oxygen Network.
Don’t mess with South London girl Naomi! She will drag you and your whole crew through the courts.
The advert for Cadbury’s Bliss range of Dairy Milk chocolate bars used the strapline “Move over Naomi, there’s a new diva in town”.
Campbell said she was “shocked” by the ad, intended as a tongue-in-cheek play on Campbell’s reputation for diva-style tantrums and behaviour.
“It’s upsetting to be described as chocolate, not just for me but for all black women and black people,” she said. “I do not find any humour in this. It is insulting and hurtful.”
“This is the 21st century, not the 1950s,” she added. “Shame on Cadbury.”
The ad was one of 15 developed by Fallon, the agency behind Cadbury’s famous drumming gorilla TV campaign.
Cadbury, now part of the Kraft empire, pulled the ads and initially issued a statement saying it was “never our intention to cause offence” and it had positioned the campaign as a “light-hearted take on the social pretensions of Cadbury Dairy Milk Bliss”. Continue Reading….
Yet another major ad campaign FAIL!

Super model Naomi Campbell accused the fashion industry of racism today as she urged designers to use more black models.
The 40-year-old from Streatham said the industry had taken a step backwards, as she collected a special honour at the British Fashion Awards.
She told the Evening Standard: “We’re all aware that we need to introduce more women [of colour]. Continue Reading…..
It’s good she’s speaking out but tell us something we don’t already know Naomi.
Did everybody think (including Naomi) that the situation would suddenly change after Vogue Italia decided in 2008 to do black models a favour and dedicated an entire issue (the one off ‘Black Issue’) to them?
Naomi Campbell attended the Venice Film Festival yesterday with her billionaire boyfriend Vladimir Doronin. She looks good but I still continue to weep for her scalp.

After months of running and ‘hiding’ Naomi Campbell has finally testified at alleged war criminal Charles Taylor’s trial…
Via BBC News
Model Naomi Campbell has testified that she was given some “dirty-looking stones” after a 1997 dinner attended by ex-Liberian President Charles Taylor.
Speaking at Mr Taylor’s war crimes trial in The Hague, she said late that night, two unidentified men appeared at her room and gave her the stones.
However, she had no proof that the stones were diamonds or came from Mr Taylor, as a fellow guest suggested. Continue Reading….
Why does Naomi’s face look so swollen?
Anyway Naomi claims to have donated the stones to Jeremy Ratcliffe of the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund, but they deny receiving the stones.

British supermodel Naomi Campbell is to be forced to give evidence in the war crimes trial of former Liberian President Charles Taylor.
The UN-backed Special Court for Sierra Leone ordered a subpoena to be served and said law enforcement agencies should be asked to ensure she appeared.
Prosecutors say Ms Campbell was given a “blood diamond” by Mr Taylor in 1997 at Nelson Mandela’s house in South Africa.
Mr Taylor is accused of using such diamonds to fuel a war in Sierra Leone.
Ms Campbell had previously refused to provide testimony in the case. Continue Reading….
You receive a diamond in the middle of the night (a present) , innocently share this news with Mia Farrow the following morning back in 1997, and it all comes back to haunt you in good old 2010.
That Mia Farrow has a big mouth. The woman wouldn’t last five minutes in prison.
Anyway, what are your thoughts on this whole situation?
Naomi Campbell was recently photographed during a fashion shoot in New York and I am annoyed with her. She should know better by now!
Look at what happens to your hairline when you insist on wearing wigs and weaves all the time….
Naomi give your scalp the chance to BREATHE!

Naomi Campbell and Tyson Beckford visited the Lagos Island Maternity Hospital, during the 3rd Thisday Africa Rising Festival in Lagos, Nigeria.

Celebrities cannot visit Africa’s hospitals, schools, and shanty towns without inviting the media to tag a long with them…….
Naomi and Tyson’s press and publicity…….
“We are going to be visiting a maternity hospital today in Lagos, so make sure you get some good shots of Naomi and Tyson holding the babies and smiling with the mothers and hospital staff. Gather as many natives as you can for a decent photo opp. Its important that we show Naomi and Tyson mingling with these poor underprivileged Africans, and that they care”.
