Naomi Campbell is going to give Tyra Banks a run for her money. The supermodel is starring in her own reality modeling competition on Oxygen! Naomi will be one of three coaches on the new show “The Face”.
Naomi will be one of the three coaches that lead contestants through as they battle on and off the runway to be a national spokesperson. Scouting and picking aspiring models from all over the world, Campbell and the other two coaches, as yet unnamed, will mentor a team through the rigors of the modeling industries. The winner of The Face will become the face of a major brand, also as yet unnamed.
Naomi is excited about the project and I have to admit, so am I. I’ve always wondered what she was really like (aside from all those cell phone beatdowns and blood diamond scandals) – and now we’ll get an inside look.
It was Classical Night on this week’s Dancing with the Stars and it brought with it a strange mix of performances.
Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas chose the rumba. I think Mark doing the dance shirtless just felt a little tacky. It didn’t fit with the theme of the night, nor their music piece. Bruno’s goes a little over-the-top with his innuendos, as always. Carrie Ann Inaba says Katherine’s dance had beautiful lines but not enough chemistry and heat.
Melissa Gilbert and Maksim Chmerkovskiy danced the Argentine tango. Maks is powering through with a foot issue, while his brother Val is on standby just in case he can’t make it. Maks does make it to performance night, but the judges aren’t very impressed with this week’s attempt. Bruno said they looked like they were riding the Cyclone at Coney Island. Carrie Ann says it was like Cirque du Soleil went horribly wrong. They wind up with the lowest score of the night – 21.
Around the World in 80 Plates is set to premiere on May 9th and it looks like the show is going to bring a fun new twist on the cooking competitions of the past. The show’s hosts, Curtis Stone and Cat Cora , chatted with Reality Tea and a few other sites, giving us an inside peek at the upcoming craziness!
The show looks like Amazing Race and Top Chef rolled in some Housewives-style drama! Curtis and Cat confirm that the claws come out.
Curtis Stone: “It was pretty much a love/hate relationship right there.”
Cat Cora: “Oh yeah, definitely. I mean, we definitely witnessed it. I think from the very beginning when it was down to the first elimination. These chefs wanted to be in a competition. They were chosen. They wanted to move on. And they absolutely were going to fight for that role and that position. And I think they, from day one – obviously it gets a little more tense as it goes along and – or a lot more tense I should say. So yeah, we definitely witnessed some strategy and definitely some people fighting for it.”
Curtis Stone: “Which is interestingly representative of how the culinary world actually works. Because in a lot of ways for these guys it was like doing a (stagiaire) which is, you know, the French term given to a short period of time that you work in somebody else’s kitchen to gain a little bit of experience and knowledge. And they got to do this in a bunch of different countries around the world. What you’re really doing when you’re in a kitchen is of course you’re working as a team and you’re supporting that team as much as you possibly can. But the reality is you really are competing for the next position. If you’re a line cook as we call it in America, and you want to climb that ladder or that brigade that, you know, is so hierarchical in a kitchen then you have to outperform them. So you do have to compete and there are little games played in everyday kitchen life. So I think that it’s really a fascinating take on that.”

Oh Jimmy Kimmel, you just inched up a few slots on my cool people list.
Last night at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, the comedian made Kim Kardashian the butt of several jokes. She and pimpmomager Kris Jenner saved face by laughing when the cameras panned their way, but I’m sure they were genuinely delighted to be the center of attention.
The Bachelor stars hit the red carpet in Las Vegas, putting on a PDA-packed show for the photographers. Ben and Courtney were in the city to host an evening at Pure nightclub at Caesars Palace Hotel and Casino.
Is it just me, or does Ben desperately need a wash and cut or maybe just a style—something!?
