NAOMI NEEDS TO BE TALKING TO A MENTAL HEATH PROFESSIONAL INSTEAD OF OPRAH
Perhaps one of the most disturbing interviews I have ever seen was watching model Naomi Campbell on Oprah.
crying for no reason for no reason at all
not knowing why she was crying when asked by Oprah,
her telling Oprah that she” sees red’ and then doesn’t remember anything and
her making countless excuses for her egregious behavior
leads me to believe that she is a clear danger to anyone who has to work with her or deal with her personally or professionally.
A person with no clue why they act the way they do and abuses others because they don’t do exactly what is expected, is a TOXIC PERSON and frightening to be around.
Perhaps Oprah may have even sensed that Naomi might possibly be dangerous and go off on her as well, especially after Naomi said that she “sees red” and then doesn’t remember what happens after she goes off on someone.
Maybe that is why Oprah’s body language indicated that she was particularly gentle with Naomi on her show. Perhaps she didn’t want to upset Naomi to the point that she saw red and ended up throwing something at Oprah.
WHY OPRAH HAD NAOMI ON THE SHOW AND WHAT NAOMI WAS TRYING TO ACCOMPLISH BY BEING ON THE SHOW?
We obviously know why Oprah had Naomi on the show- sweeps ot ratings season. But what was Naomi’s reason for being on Oprah’s show?
She had nothing to promote and really had nothing of value to say except make excuses for her bad behavior and to display how TOXIC she was.
Sometimes people go on Oprah to set the record straight. They want to tell their side of the story and to let the public know who they really are.
Well Naomi’s appearance definitely let everyone know who she is- a very disturbed woman in my view who needs to be feared until she gets some major professional help and gets her anger in control .
Looking at the little red Kabballah bracelet tied to her wrist, it will take a lot more than Kabbalah, Madonna’s organization to set this woman straight. It will take hours and hours of serious therapy by a qualified professional.
NAOMI BEING A SELF ADMITTED” CONTROL FREAK” SPEAKS TO HER IMMATURITY, LACK OF SELF CONTROL, BOUNDARIES AND IMMATURITY AND BEING A TOXIC PERSON
While not everyone who is a self admitted control freak is abusive, being a control freak and not being flexible and tolerant of others can often lead towards abusing others.
Look at another self admitted “control freak,” Kate Gosselin and how she abused her former husband Jon, her kids, and most recently, her dancing partner on Dancing With the Stars, Tony Dovalani.
While Kate has been seen throwing clothing and toys, Naomi’s throwing items like cell phones and other items and hitting people and ABC cameras shows that this woman is out of control herself.
This is the case with most control freaks. They cannot control themselves and their own impulses , so they try to control others and everyone around them.
When A baby doesn’t get their way, they cry or often throw a tantrum. That is exactly what Naomi does. She obviously hasn’t grown up. She still resorts to this immature and infantile behavior. Mature grownups use words. They don’t throw things at others and hit them.
BRINGING HER MARRIED BOYFRIEND ON THE SHOW DID NOT ENDEAR NAOMI TO MANY VIEWERS
For someone who espouses to do the right thing and encourages moral turpitude, it didn’t seem very Oprah-like to me to allow Naomi to display her married boyfriend on the show like a first grader brings a pet turtle to school for “show and tell.”
I don’t care if the man is a handsome Russian or looks like he stepped out of the pages of Gentleman’s Quarterly, or that he has been separated for ten years.
I don’t care if he said it twice or twenty times. The fact is that he is still a married man and doesn’t sit right with a lot of viewers. That did not help Naomi in trying to rehab her image on Oprah in my view. Instead, it showed very poor judgment on her part.
Control Freaks as Naomi described herself, may be on their best behavior with a lover Naomi says she likes to have a man in control. So no doubt, her Russian married boyfriend agrees with this philosophy or he wouldn’t be with her for very long.
But eventually one’s the real personality comes out. So no doubt when Naomi starts showing more signs of a her control freak nature, who uses violence to get her way, her married Russian lover may go back to the wife to whom he was separated from for the past ten years.
NAOMI IF FULL OF THE BLAME GAME FROM ACCUSING ABC OF PUTTING IN SOUND EFFECTS WHEN SHE HIT THE CAMERA TO HER EMPTY WORDS ABOUT AN ABANDONED CHILDHOOD
As soon as Naomi spoke she turned millions off viewers. While she had every right to not speak about an issue when she was interviewed and even had a right to walk off the set if it upset her that much, she did NOT have right to slap a producer’s camera on her way out.
She could have done some major damage to extremely sensitive and sophisticated equipment.
Naomi claimed to Oprah that there was “a sound effect” added to the ABC News reports on the incident. ABC News claims that they did not add any sound effects to the ABC News reports on the alleged blood diamond gift, which aired April 22 on both World News and Nightline.
I believe them as news organizations do not do such things. Having worked for ABC’s Los Angeles’ affiliate myself as a reporter, I can assure you that this does NOT happen.
Naomi had no accountability whatsoever. ‘She actually smiled as smug smile as you can see in the above photo. She spoke about her lashing out as though she was proud of her TOXIC behavior.
EXCUSES, EXCUSES , AND MORE EXCUSES AS SHE EXPLAINS HER THROWING THINGS COMES FROM ABANDONMENT ISSUES
Naomi had to clarify that it was not a jewel encrusted phone that she threw at the housekeeper but a regular one!
When Oprah calmly asked her “What it is in you that tells you it’s OK thow throw things?” Naomi looks away and says sees red as she said she didn’t even remember why she threw the phone at the housekeeper who couldn’t find her jeans. She says “ I don’t remember I just threw the phone .
She then goes on to say “I’m ashamed.” Nut Naomi showed no visible body language signs of shame and no vocal signs of shame. It was clearly noting more than rehearsed rhetoric, especially when she attributed her actions to “abandonment issues.”
After Naomi had no clue or insight as to why she behaves as she does, she decided to bring in some psychology 101 and discuss “abandonment issues.”
As she discussed this she looked down. She couldn’t even look at Oprah as she knew this was complete BS. Like Oprah remarked in a calm monotone, lots of people have abandonment issues and mamma issues and they don’t throw things.
When Naomi tied to lamely explain that since she was abandoned she keeps trying to build up a family around her “ that’s not my immediate family.” She goes on to say that if she feels a mistrust then” she let’s loose with her violent behavior.
Well here is a clue Naomi. Your helpers and assistants and cab drivers and people on airplanes and taxi drivers are NOT your family.
I would say create a real family of your own, but on second thought until you get your anger and your psychological issues sorted out, it would be a tragedy to bring anyone into your life and abuse them like you have constantly abused others.
NAOMI”S MOTHER SPILLS THE BEANS
While Naomi tried to attribute her issues on to her mother, he mother let out some very valuable information about Naomi.
She said that she worked hard as a 19 year old mother and sacrificed a lot so that Naomi could have everything she wanted and get a great education and attend private schools.
This screams at what an ingrate Naomi is. Instead of focusing on what she didn’t have – her mother’s time, she needs to focus on what she did have- and how her mother made every opportunity possible like going to private school. Perhaps that would help her diffuse her internal rage.
PLAYING THE VICTIM ROLE COMPLETE WITH TEARS
When a person cries and cries and can’t tell you why they are crying, a possibility is that they are in a depression.
But when one is on Oprah and doesn’t wipe off their tears and leaves them there to glisten, chances are very high that they are using their tears as a form of manipulation in leaving them there for effect. They want you to feel sorry or pity for them.
I have no doubt that this was the case with Naomi. Oprah offered her a kleenex, but the tears were still there, glistening. Also when she wiped away some non tears that is when I was convinced it was all for effect and all for control and manipulation.
THUMBING HER NOSE UP AT HER PUNISHMENT FOR COMMUNITY SERVICE
When Naomi had to undergo hours of community service she wore her designer clothing complete with evening gown. This was an obvious message to the powers that be. She tried to explain it away that she had a photo shoot afterwards.
One does NOT come to photo shoots in a designer gown. The gown is usually put on at the time of the photo shoot as to not ruin it with perspiration or dirt.
If she was doing her community service washing out toilets and floors, there is a high percentage that she would get some dirt and grime on her gown. So what she was saying was ridiculous.
She then tried to spin it that she had nice clothing and likes to dress well and so she wore what she usually wears. Puhleeze!
It was clear as to what Naomi was doing and saying by this action. Her message was “ I am above it I am entitled and I will show you! I will wear designer elegant gowns to your lowly common community service to further rub in your face just who I am!”
It was clear that she was thumbing her nose at the system in a very immature way.
PRETTY IS AS PRETTY DOES AND NAOMI IS NOT PRETTY
Watching Oprah fawn over Naomi and drool over how beautiful she was and the perfection 0f her body was absolutely sickening to me. In my eyes. When Oprah spoke about how she envied Naomi and her glamorous life, it spoke volumes about Oprah and her insecurities about her looks and self admitted weight issues.
Naomi is anything but pretty, attractive, or beautiful in my eyes. In fact she is quite the opposite. I strongly subscribe to the “pretty is as pretty does” philosophy.
So what is she has a proportional figure which makes her sexy to men as Bono said. Maybe in her past she took cocaine to keep thin and keep her model figure as so many models did back in the day.
But now that she is 40, she showed that she spends hours and hours a day of grueling exercise to keep that figure. That is her job. As a live mannequin , Ii she gets flabby she won’t look as good in the clothing which people pay her a lot of money to showcase.
Anyone who is that nasty, clueless, in denial, unaccountable for their actions, superficial and remorseless is anything but pretty in my eyes !
NO REMORSE IN VOCAL TONE AS SHE CLAIMS TO WANTS TO BE A BETTER PERSON
Wearing her her little red $20 Kabbalah Center string on her wrist, Naomi wipes away her contrived tears as in a monotone, she says that she wants to be a better person.
Based on her lack of emotion in her tone and her looking away, and lack of remorse in her facial expression or body language, those appeared to be empty words. They sounded good but they were not heartfelt.
If Naomi wants to be a better person, the first thing she needs to so is stop working and gallivanting around and get into some serious and intensive therapy before she interacts with others.
She needs to give some of her millions that she earned throughout the years to charitable causes like the Smile Train Foundation or Doctors Without Borders who operate on patients with facial deformities.
A better person gives and is not only consumed with themselves. They donate their time and efforts to help others.
Maybe Naomi needs to start at modeling school or class for inner city young women to help them build their self esteem.
Finally anyone who wants to be a better person does the right thing. That includes not going with a married man – even if he has been separated for ten years. If he hasn’t divorced his wife and made a commitment, it means that he is still connected to his wife.
Oprah’s last words to Naomi was that she hopes she finds peace and that Naomi not spend as much time on her external world and more on her internal world.
That is like asking a duck to use a computer. What Oprah really needed to say was, “run and see a therapist as soon as you can because you have clearly demonstrated on this show that you are in serious need of help.” www.drlillianglass.com
