Naomi Campbell: Nicki Minaj, Kendall Jenner & Cardi B All Suck!

Naomi Campbell hasn’t made too many tabloid headlines in recent years, and that’s undeniably a good thing.

Back when she was a staple in the gossip columns, it was usually for something extremely unpleasant, like the time she threw a phone at her assistant.

Like most folks, however, Naomi has mellowed a bit with age.

But as she proved on Watch What Happens Live last night, the runway icon can still make her very strong opinions unmistakably known to those who have displeased her.

Fortunately, these days she prefers to use her words, rather than blunt objects.

In the clip above, Naomi was asked about the ongoing feud between Nicki Minaj and Cardi B.

Interestingly, she refused to choose a side, insisting instead that both women behaved foolishly.

“I was disappointed,” Naomi said. 

“I don’t wanna see women of color fight. I don’t wanna see women fight, period,” she added.

“Not there, not that. It’s all music. There’s no division in music. Music is for everybody. There’s no discrimination. So I felt very disappointed.”

As a final bit of trash-talk, Naomi revealed that she was not in attendance at the New York Fashion Week Party where Cardi threw a shoe at Nicki, noting:

“It was called the Icon Party, but there were no icons there.”

Now that’s shade!

Later in the episode, Naomi turned her attention to Kendall Jenner.

You may recall that Kendall pissed off the modeling community recently when she threw shade at her colleagues who work more than she does, so that they can — ya know, eat food and pay rent and whatnot.

Andy Cohen asked how Naomi felt about Kendall’s remarks, and no one should be surprised by her response:

“Next question,” Campbell replied curtly.

In a way, that’s a far more savage burn than what Naomi had to say about Nicki and Cardi.

When she spoke about their feud, Naomi made it clear that she has respect for both artists, but takes issue with petty feuds and violent behavior.

With Kendall, she couldn’t even be bothered to give her two cents.

Her attitude toward her fellow model comes as a bit of a surprise, as Campbell has been a friend of the Kardashian family for several years.

But clearly, the woman ran out of f–ks to give long ago.

Good for her.

Naomi Campbell: Furious at Rihanna for Dating Hassan Jameel

Rihanna may have bagged herself a billionaire in Spain this week.

But she also walked herself right into a feud with veteran supermodel Naomi Campbell.

Or kissed her way right into this feud, we should say.

On Tuesday, photos went viral of Rihanna making out with someone named Hassan Jameel while the two took a private deep in a pool in Spain.

The superstar and Jameel were only spotted swapping spit, but it was an intense session of tonsil hockey.

In baseball terms, Rihanna and her rumored new boyfriend may have only gotten to first base, but it was a sharply hit, line drive single.

Moreover, who knows what went on behind closed doors between Rihanna and Jameel? Even more layers of clothing may have come off.

Not that Campbell wants to hear about any of this.

The long-time model dated Jameel last year; she was spotted at a Stevie Wonder concert with him during the 2016 Barclaycard British Summer Time Festival in Hyde Park.

And it’s safe to assume that Rihanna’s relationship with her former flame is the reason why Campbell stopped following the artist across all social media platforms.

“Naomi has known about Rihanna dating Jameel for a while and she is furious about them being together,” a source tells Hollywood Life, adding:

“On a superficial level, Naomi feels she’s hotter and more successful than Rihanna, so it’s frustrating to see the photos circulating online.”

That’s a superficial to be sure. It’s also a simple falsehood.

We can understand why Campbell is pissed, however.

Hassan Jameel is a lot more than a handsome face. The guy is ridiculously rich!

The businessman’s family owns Abdul Latif Jameel, an organization that – among many other ventures – owns the right to sell Toyota Motor vehicles in Saudi Arabia and several other Middle Eastern countries.

In other words: he makes money every time someone in these nations buys a Toyota.

Just how lucrative is this business?

Jameel is reportedly worth around $ 1.5 billion.

He’s also a good person, however, not just a cold-hearted money-maker.

Jameel is the president of the company’s Community Jameel in Saudi Arabia.

This is a a charitable organization that coordinates programs focused on the “social, cultural, educational and economic development of individuals and communities in the Middle East region and beyond,” according to the official website.

Asked by Andy Cohen earlier this year about her alleged beef with Rihanna, Campbell shot back:

“We’re fine.”

She eventually said she doesn’t have a feud with anyone, “especially with black women, who are in the same thing and doing the same struggle.”

Or doing the same man, apparently.

An insider has told The Sun that this romance is “the real deal,” but Campbell isn’t buying it.

She’s supposedly not all that upset about Rihanna getting it on with Jameel because she “doubts they will last very long as a couple, given their poor dating histories,” Hollywood Life writes.

Only time will tell, but we don’t really care what Naomi Campbell has to say.

As long as Chris Brown is sad over this relationship, we’re extremely happy.

Naomi Judd: I Almost Killed Myself Over Depression

Naomi Judd is pretty much a national treasure at this point. 

Which is why it’s extra hard to have to hear that she went through such dark times — times dark enough that she thought it’d be better to take her own life.  

Naomi, mother of Ashley Judd and former Wynonna Juddwas diagnosed with Hepatitis C in 1991 when she was at the peak of her career. 

However, in a brand-new interview with People magazine, Judd revealed that it wasn’t the disease that became intolerable for her. 

Judd reported that in 2013, she went through the darkest depression of her life — so dark, in fact, that she contemplated suicide. 

On heavy-duty medication cocktails, Judd revealed that she was admitted to various psych wards, and had been to therapy myriad times. 

Things got so bad that Naomi revealed she began plotting her own demise — jumping from a bridge nearby her Tennessee home. 

Judd told People, “Nobody can understand it unless you’ve been there.”

“Think of your very worst day of your whole life — someone passed away, you lost your job, you found out you were being betrayed, that your child had a rare disease,” she trailed off.

“You can take all of those at once and put them together and that’s what depression feels like.”

Judd also revealed that a part of her lapse into a bottomless pit depression was a direct result of sexual abuse by an uncle, and detailed a depression so deep that she wouldn’t leave her home. 

“I literally couldn’t leave the house for weeks,” Judd revealed.

“I was completely immobilized and every single second was like a day.”

“It’s so beyond making sense but I thought, ‘Surely my family will know that I was in so much pain and I thought they would have wanted me to end that pain [through suicide],’ ” she reasoned.  

Judd eventually began to emerge from the darkness, and penned her new memoir, River of Time: My Descent Into Depression and How I Emerged With Hope

Though she’s in a much better place than she was over the last four years, she stated she’s not out of the woods yet.

“I’m still trying desperately trying to help myself,” she said.

“There’s never going to be a pill for it all.”

“Those thoughts of suicide don’t come anymore. But I’m vulnerable. I know I can backslide,” Judd admitted. 

Naomi also claimed that the side effects of the many medications she has to ingest have taken their toll on her. 

Judd said that she’s lost her hair, experiences tremors in her hands, and has a swollen face as a result of the meds’ side effects. 

But she’s alive, and she’s trying — and that’s what really matters. 

Memoirs apparently run in the family — daughter Ashley Judd, sexually abused as a child as well — wrote her own in 2011, and Naomi had some hurt feelings after the book was released. 

About daughter Judd’s book, All That is Bitter and Sweet, Naomi said, “I will probably get around to reading it, because as a mom, I certainly want to honor her reality,”

“I was horrible,” Naomi said. “I didn’t know any better.”

What a mess, but it’s incredibly brave that Naomi has decided to come forward and address and attack these issues head-on.
