Naomi Campbell Is Better Than Us


So, imagine you have just taken a six hour flight from London to New York. Maybe you are alone or maybe you are with your spouse and two kids who just want to go outside. Before you can get free though you have go to through immigration. Now, further imagine there are about 200 people ahead of you in line. Looks like you might be there awhile. But, not if you are Naomi Campbell. The airport queen herself was escorted past every single passenger including her fellow first class passengers and whisked through the immigration line. Apparently the US is unconcerned about her little run in with two police officers in London Heathrow. Of course if that had been us and we tried to enter the US, we would have spent about two hours being questioned before being let in.

Now, the good news in all of this is that the crowd, in the valiant tradition of all New Yorkers booed the hell out of Naomi as she sped past them and flower petals laid at her feet before each new step she took. Naomi's spokesperson said that Naomi didn't ask for special treatment. Uh huh. She may not have asked but I fear for the lives of the people in the line if she had to wait. Can you imagine if she actually had to wait in line like an "everyday person." Think she would have done some damage? Maybe it is a good thing they escorted her through. I wish her spokesperson would have used that as an excuse. That would have been classic.

Christy Turlington is the only one of that group who has a nice, clean, healthy, normal, humble--yet still celebrity--life now.

And maybe Helena Christensen.

Gosh, in the 90's I absolutely worshipped those women.

I wanted to sashay and chantay down that f*cking runway, babes.

I don't like to throw this word around much but that women is the definition of a cunt. Hopefully that cunt will soon die in a car fire so the world will be a better place.

Maybe she's in that Nexus program that lets you breeze through immigration.

I met her back in my days in NYC at the Allure party when the magazine was brand new. What a beotch!!! She had an album and a book coming out and, Damn! What attitude. She was with Steven Meisel, I was with Kevin Acoin and Danilo and she wouldn't even look me in the eye, let alone shake my hand.

Drug couriers always get special treatment from corrupt customs officers, don't they?

Pink Skull said...

Marina Ortiz you are too funny

Leave this woman alone. She's balding, has mental illness and is basically irrelevant now. Why bother?

Go cheer someone like...Britney Spears or Paris Hilton and LEAVE NAOMIE ALONE!

but, geebz, you can say the same thing about brit brit!
naomi is batshit crazy, and that's ALWAYS relevant around here!

I recently flew coach from London to LA and sat behind Juliette Lewis and her band. They were talking about how amazing their tour in Europe was and generally being normal. When we boarded, an air attendant approached her to let her know there was an available seat in First Class. Juliette said something like, 'Nah, I'm cool here', put on her eye mask and then slept the whole way. At Immigration, I stood behind her again and she simply waited patiently like the rest of us.... In my opinion, Juliette is 100 times more relevant than Naomi Campbell.. so maybe they did offer her the chance to get special treatment but she's such a c*nt, I would have punched her in the kidneys on the way past.
