Interview: Naomi Talks 'The Face' And Loving 'Real Housewives'
Well, this is a special Thursday treat! While not as amazing as an afternoon of manis and pedis with the Queen of the Runway, it is pretty awesome when Naomi Campbell takes a moment to chat with us. Read on to learn what she's working on, her TV addictions and what she thinks the stars will be wearing this Sunday at the Academy Awards.
The Face: What projects outside of “The Face” do you have coming up?
Naomi: In addition to “The Face,” I’ve also been working on my perfume line, which includes 13 unique scents. We’re introducing the 14th perfume, Queen of Gold, this summer! I’ve also been working on interviewing celebrities for Interview Russia and Interview Germany—I’m Editor-at-Large for the magazines.
What reality/TV shows are your guilty pleasures?
I love the"Real Housewives"—all of them! (Note: Naomi really does know her "Housewives" and pop culture. Watch some clips of her on Andy Cohen's "Watch What Happens Live" from Sunday. She's so funny!)
What are you most excited to see on “The Face” this season?
I’m most excited to see Team Naomi win lots of challenges. My girls are amazing. I’m so proud of all of them!
What did you learn from the contestants on your team?
I was really impressed by the drive, passion and desire that all of the girls on Team Naomi have. They taught me a lot about passion and strength and I remain very close with all of them.
Any predictions for designers that the Best and Best Supporting Actress nominees at the Oscars will be wearing?
I think they’ll be wearing Alexander McQueen and Dior.
