Mean Betty on Naomi Campbell’s Blood Diamond
The supermodel is at it again, swinging at cameras and refusing to answer questions about evil African ex-dictators. All in a day’s work!
Mental note: Do not ever mention the words “blood diamond” or “African despot” or “crimes against humanity” within earshot of Naomi Campbell. It’s most hazardous to one’s health!
Yes darlings, our dear Glamazon Naomi Campbell is at it again – swinging punches and causing international mayhem as only a 6-foot diva with long arms, and giant superiority complex and a very short fuse can do.
The culprit who dared to cross Naomi this time was not one of those pesky, inferior servants that poor Naomi always seems to get saddled with (luckily she seems to have an endless arsenal of crystal-studded cell phones). No, this time the evildoer was an ABC reporter who had the gall to question Naomi about a “blood diamond” the supermodel is rumored to have received from a very bad guy indeed.
Mia Farrow, of all people, can ultimately be blamed for the fracas – after all she is the one who ratted out Naomi to ABC news in the first place, telling them that Naomi bragged about receiving a “huge diamond” in the middle of the night from Liberia’s former “president” Charles Taylor when both Mia and Naomi were visiting Nelson Mandela. (Apparently Mean Betty’s invite to that little tête-à-tête got lost in the mail!)
Mean Betty knows, darlings, we usually don’t have to go into complicated international politics in Mean Betty’s column, but suffice it to say Taylor is not someone one should be taking gifts from, as he is accused of killing and amputating thousands of people in Sierra Leone between 1997 and 2001. And his gruesome activity is said to have been financed with blood diamonds, which, of course, Mean Betty surely doesn’t have to tell you darlings, are diamonds essentially mined by slaves under wretched conditions.
So one might think that Naomi would be happy to explain this was a misunderstanding, no?
Oh Naomi, Naomi. That superior pout on your face is truly a sight to behold. Too bad you didn’t have a sharp implement or something nice and heavy handy!
Just remember, dear Glamazon – sometimes diamonds are NOT a girl’s best friend.
