This interview with Naomi Campbell on the Tyra Banks Show was one of the most hilarious interviews I have ever seen on daytime television. The interview aired a few years ago and for some reason Tyra rarely airs the rerun. Also, it never hit YouTube until now and I'm sure it will be pulled in a few days.
What makes the interview so hilarious is the whole time Naomi has a look on her face like, "Bitch -- you are lucky I don't have a cell phone in my hand or it would go right to your fivehead!" Tyra is going on and on how she was wounded in the glamorous world of modeling by the big she-wolf known as Naomi. Naomi's argument is I was high, young, and the baddest bitch at the time -- get over it! How can Tyra expect Naomi to remember over 14 years ago when she was doped up? Poor Tyra starts fidgeting and getting jumpy if more than 15 seconds go by and the conversation isn't about her.
My favorite line is Naomi asks, "Did you ever know Gianni Versace?" Obviously Naomi knew she didn't and before Tyra can barely get out a "No" - Naomi continues - lol!
