Friends Don't Let Friends Work for Naomi Campbell

Just when you thought there was no good gossip anymore (besides Fez's chivalrous, classy sexual boasting on Howard Stern, of course), good ole Naomi Campbell smacks yet another lackey in the skull with a phone. Yippee!

From The Austin American-Statesman, which knows real, solid, important news when it sees it:
Volatile supermodel Naomi Campbell, one of the world's most recognizable faces, was charged with second-degree assault Thursday after cracking her housekeeper in the head with a phone during an argument in her Park Avenue apartment, police said.

The British-born Campbell, 35, was taken into custody shortly after police responded to Lenox Hill Hospital to investigate the reported assault, police said. Campbell was charged after questioning at the Midtown North Precinct, where scores of photographers, reporters and film crews awaited her exit.

The volatile supermodel was taken to a Manhattan police precinct for questioning Thursday, March 30, 2006, after an altercation left her housekeeper hospitalized with a laceration to the head, police said.

This was not the first time that Campbell allegedly reached out and touched someone with a phone. In 2003, the supermodel was sued by a former administrative assistant who alleged that Campbell had thrown a phone at her during a tantrum two years earlier

According to police, Campbell's 41-year-old housekeeper received four stitches to the head at the hospital after the incident. When investigating officers arrived at Lenox Hill, the alleged victim identified Campbell as her attacker, police said.

The victim was not identified. The incident allegedly happened around 8 a.m. Thursday in Campbell's tony Park Avenue apartment, police said. In a statement, a Campbell spokesman said the supermodel was not responsible for any assault.

"We believe this is a case of retaliation, because Naomi had fired her housekeeper earlier this morning," said the statement from J.R. Johnson. "We are confident the courts will see it the same way."

Oh, God bless Naomi Campbell for always living up to our expectations and being a total and complete scary beyotch at all times. I believe extra-special Felt Up huzzahs for Ms. Campbell are in order:

Huzzah! Huzzah! Huzzah!
