Naomi Erupts In Tears On Oprah, Plus The Question Harpo Wouldn’t Ask Alicia Keys… Isn’t He Married???

- By Bossip Staff

The baddest b*tch to ever climb on a catwalk, Naomi Campbell, was on “The Oprah Show” Monday and no topic was off limits! Oprah asked the supermodel about her terrible temper, the blood diamond incident, her abandonment issues, how she stays so bangin’ and even about her married billionaire swirl. Pop the hood

Thank heavens for Oprah *smirk* she has finally got the science down on Naomi’s violent temper. Winfrey questioned Naomi at detail about her propensity to hurl a phone:

Oprah: 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.

Naomi: Yes.

Oprah: And then what?

Naomi: Then I don’t see.

Oprah: You just act.

Naomi: I act out.

(By ‘act’ they mean hurl a phone or a fist at a muhfugga) After “acting” Naomi says she almost instantly regrets her actions.

“I feel remorseful. I feel ashamed. I feel for them,” she says. “[I think,] ‘What have I done to them?’ If I’ve hurt them.”

“I think it comes from a deeper place than that with me. It comes from another type of emotional disorder, because it’s not just, ‘I don’t get what I want. I throw,'” she says. “It comes from, I think, an abandonment issue, and it comes from also just trying to build up a family around me that’s not my immediate family. And if I feel a mistrust, then I really just…all my cards go down.”

So it turns out that all this anger and craziness comes from Naomi’s childhood abandonment issues? Okay.

Fortunately Naomi’s mom Valerie Morris was in Oprah’s audience ready to share the story of having Naomi at 19-years-old and entrusting her to someone else so she could pursue a career in ballet.

“I do feel that I abandoned her,” Valerie said on the show. “Looking back on that, you know, you sort of realize that material possessions are not the only thing that a child needs. But, sometimes, that child needs its biological mother.”

*Cue the violins* Naomi starts crying after her mother’s words…

“What are the tears for?” Oprah asks.

“I don’t know. Just my mom being here and her speaking about, you know, of course I understand the sacrifice she had to make,” she says. “So for me, I guess, I want to do better. I want to be a better person. I’m not proud of the things I’ve done in my life, and I’m striving to be a better person and to find peace.”

We’re all hoping Naomi can find her some peace — after all the safety of anyone who comes into contact with her is in danger until that happens…
Naomi also addressed the whole “blood diamond” issue which involves her refusal to speak about an alleged diamond gifted to her by Liberian warlord Charles Taylor in his current trial.

While staying at Nelson Mandela’s home in South Africa, Naomi says she met Taylor briefly. “[Taylor] wasn’t invited, and none of us knew who he was. He wasn’t part of our group,” she says. “But he did show up and we understood who he was after it was explained.”

Naomi says she didn’t want to answer questions about Taylor because she doesn’t want to be involved in his case. That one we can understand. We wouldn’t want to know how Liberian warlords deal with snitches either!

Oprah’s cameras also followed Naomi around Moscow, where she lives with her billionaire boyfriend Vladimir Doronin. Watch the video below for Naomi’s little tour and make sure you watch all the way to the end where she addresses Vlad about being married:

Vodpod videos no longer available.

SMH at the sheer hypocrisy of Oprah getting all up in Vladimir and Naomi’s business after that chummy little interview she did with Alicia Keys a few months ago!

    Naomi: Then I don’t see.

    Naomi: I act out.


    She hasnt met the right person yet. I would’ve beat that b!!tch down 6ft-no coffin required.

  • Nique (Life in the Fab Lane)

    …and then rob her…

  • Chi-town smooth stepper

    She was crying because she is bi-polar and haven’t ran up on the right person to throw a temper tantrum with who would tag that as. When asked why men are attracted to her she stated her beauty and her body. Duh uh what no brain. Her guy stated that he is married but has been seperated from his wife for 10 years, wonder why? His wife has stated that he will not give him a divore esp not to marry Naomi. Namoi is so phony and she only dates white famous rich men.

  • Caramel Cat™

    So he and his wife have been separated for ten years….hmmm, I guess divorce is too complicated to do over in Russia so it’s cool for him to flaunt around his new chick and for her to become friends with the fam? That’s VERY interesting…

  • Yun Dun Know

    She is too old to be using excuses. You know how many people have abandonment issues and do not have an anger problem of this caliber??


    Naomi, while one of the most beautiful women of color to ever walk the runway, is a snobby, arrogant, “my-sh*t-dont-stink” celeb who wants sympathy for when she f*cks up.

    Not gonna get it.

    You are TOO damn old for these outbursts! I’m surprised that your (married) boyfriend puts up with such a childish woman! Luckily you have the looks and money or else he’d leave your a** for good.

    And not for nothing, but it seems that even though she may be mega pretty, she still shows signs of insecurity. Those who date someone who is already taken believe that they cannot get someone better who will devote themeselves, exclusively, to her.

    She just needs to ease up on her anger and temper and she will be aight.

  • Yun Dun Know

    OMG @Jinx!!!!!

    You probably telling the truth!!

  • that damn sh#$ disturber

    sounds like a crock of sh@# to me. she’s a spoiled little princess plain and simple.
    “and it comes from also just trying to build up a family around me that’s not my immediate family. And if I feel a mistrust, then I really just…all my cards go down.”…she wouldn’t include a complete stranger in her personal, little family so where is the mistrust coming from???

  • that damn sh#$ disturber

    not everyone she went off on worked for or knew her personally

  • http://bossip Keep it Real

    What do you call a ten year separation? We can kick it but don’t even think about me putting a ring on it.

  • they killed mike



  • Royal Chocolate

    A word of advice…..GET OVER IT!! At least you can afford a therapist.

  • Melinda

    Did anyone else find it strange that Oprah basically aked why any rich man would be interested in Naomi? I doubt she would have asked Gisele Bunchen that question.It just seemed odd.

  • Miss DR, PR & Jamaica

    I Love Naomi!!! Sure she has her flaws but at least she isn’t fake like some of these celebrities.

  • She has issues

    Anger management?
    Fly’s into a rage at any moment?
    Sounds BiPolar to me…
    She should consult a good therapist and use mood stabilizing medication for her personality disorder.

    Also I bet she wont lift her hand to that Russian billionaire…
    She would end up missing for sure!

  • Caramel Cat™


    I think I missed that, what exactly did Big O say?

  • efrde

    Who cares!!! My boyfriend thinks the same with me. He is eight years older than me, lol. We met online at~ ,W/-W/-W)–[Black]-[White]-[Date]–(C/-O/-M=) ,a nice and free dating place for black/white men amd women

  • Mock Rock Star

    Oh Naomi…U can do no wrong 🙂 It seem as if Oprah was trying to clear the air with the whole marriage deal…kinda like when U live with someone for I think 5 years it was called “common law” marriage…well I guess when U’re separated for 10 years it’s a “might as well be” a divorce

  • http://bossip Keep it Real

    She should probably consider fertility treatments on the sly. I normally don’t endorse being a baby momma, however, she’s 40 a great career and financially stable. What’s left? 10 years separated? He’s not going to stay with Naomi. He will eventually find a younger prettier jumpoff. I hate to say this but every year she will become less and less attractive PHYSICALLY. She’s in serious danger of coming up empty; No man, no kid and none of his money. Yall think she’s crazy now. lol

  • Zahra

    To be very truthful I admire Naomi Cambell I feel like Naomi has done an excellent job of making sure people treat her and approach her as if she is a royal princesses or Queen. In this world people treat you the way you allow them to treat you, if you walk around with the mentally that you are someone who is powerful, successful, and unique people will treat you with respect but when you walk around with the mentally that you are normal average woman who is living life then expect people to take jabs at you and demean you if they can. Naomi I applaud you for being a fierce strong black woman who doesn’t allow anyone to degrade her, good job my friend.

  • R_U_Trying_To_Prove_Her_Right?

    And Harpo is going on The Monique Show soon, to deal with all those pesky rumors from Kitty Kelley’s book, about wanting to exchange tuna sandwiches with Diane Sawyer.

    And then there’s the tooth fairy, and Santa Claus, annnnnd …..

  • Hazelnut

    Did not like Oprah’s approach…she blurted out, “Isn’t he married?!”. The same should have been done during her interview with Alicia Keys. Hypocrite!

  • resurrected

    It’s all BS say what you want but you can not evade life or the principles of life but many people love to learn the hard way… I just want to see how this will play out this has happened to many of us but as many know that the wrong doers usually always wants to come back… A pretty woman does not equate a good woman… If the rumors are true and she is really pregnant then this situation has gotten very real and it is too late to turn back so whatever she gets from this point will be what she deserve.. Swizz seems very indecisive to me and maybe he does not handle pressure very well.. What I do see is her letting him take all of the heat while still wanting what she wants that not love to me don’t be half in because when ya’ll was fking you were not half in on that chit… So basically she is not being that ride or die bish even though she is the main reason why he is going through this mess other then his own selfish actions… Even John Edwards trashy woman was a ride or die bish…

  • Puttintang

    Heck yeah Oprah is a hypocrit!! She’s asking Vlad the Billionaire if he is married meanwhile she has been living in Sin with a man since forever and refusing to get married. Same as with banishing Chris Brown but welcoming The Winans guy that beat his wife. Oprah is so rich now that she can’t smell her own sh!t

  • BeingAMomat40Ain'tEasy

    At a time when you should really be a grandmother, you’re a mom . . . a 10 year old with a 50 year old mom is very challenging, to say the least — especially for the child . .. and if you’re single.

    Women, think about it, now that we have a choice. Being a mom for the first time in your 40s is not the move . . .especially for the child.

    I can’t say that enough . . .
