If Naomi Campbell is your Role Model…

Monday, March 16th, 2009

In April, 2008, top super model Naomi Campbell was arrested for assaulting two police officers, disorderly conduct, and using “threatening and abusive language” to a flight crew when she went into a “luggage rage” at Heathrow Airport in London.

Perhaps thinking that’s how models (or “warm props” – as we used to call them in advertising) are supposed to behave, six women went to the hospital and three were arrested Saturday in New York after thousands – waiting to audition for the reality show “America’s Next Top Model” – began to riot and brawl.

The stiletto stampede started when a car belching smoke pulled up near the line of women late in the afternoon. Because this is New York and these beauties may not be bastions of mental stability, a rumor of “BOMB!” shot through this collection of convoluted cuties faster than an annoyed Ms. Campbell demanded her luggage. And again, since it is New York, the situation was compounded when a man jumped out of a car and began grabbing purses. Sidewalks were immediately littered with chairs and sleeping bags from those who waited overnight, as well as clothes and shoes abandoned in the rush of screaming “MAWs” (Model, Actress, Whatever).

Authorities quickly cancelled the audition citing “poor planning” as the reason. Right.
