Naomi Campbell shows up hours late for the launch party for her new show 'The Face'.
“Coco Rocha will arrive early, Karolina Kurkova will be on time, and Naomi Campbell will show two hours late,” a guest predicted correctly at Oxygen’s bash for “The Face” Tuesday at Marquee. Campbell — who claims to have curbed her diva behavior to play mentor to naïve model hopefuls — arrived later than her co-stars, and had to pull Rocha and Kurkova back to the unheated outdoor carpet for pictures before being whisked inside. Freezing media members had shown up three hours earlier to the arctic carpet in anticipation of Campbell’s arrival. About rumors the series’ three model mentors don’t get along, host and former “America’s Next Top Model” judge Nigel Barker told us they’re “neither true nor false.” He said, “At times personalities clashed, but they’re very professional at the end of the day. None of these girls likes to be told they’re not going to win. These are supermodels. They don’t get told ‘no,’ they get told ‘yes,’ and then, ‘when’ and ‘how much.’ For them, not to win is a big problem.”Jacked from Page Six
