Why Are All The Hot Dudes Nutty Nutballs?

Hmmmm...Terrence Howard is defending his relationship with Naomi Campbell as being less like a romance and more like a caretakership--he claims he's sort of the Richard Milstein to Naomi's Dannielynn, and apparently Quincy Jones is Judge Seidlin. Or something. Well, that's what I claim he's saying it's like, anyway. From EURweb.com:
While promoting his upcoming film “Pride” in Beverly Hills last week, actor Terrence Howard was asked to address recent rumors surrounding his relationship with troubled model Naomi Campbell, Black Talent News publisher Tanya Kersey told EUR.

“Can you confirm that you are dating Naomi Campbell?” a reporter asked.

“I’m a married man,” Howard responded. “Quincy Jones did ask me to look after her and to talk to her. The same way Mr. Richard Parsons [African-American Chairman and CEO of TimeWarner] called me into his office and said, ‘Mr. Howard, I don’t know anything about your personal life, but your public persona is on par with Sen. Barack and so I want you to talk to Quincy.’

“And so I called Quincy and Quincy had dinner with me and introduced me to Naomi, and that’s what I’m doing. As a human being, as a friend, that’s what we’re supposed to do. The media may attack me but my responsibility is to this black woman who has established something amazing and has opened doors to so many others. My responsibility is to my elders and I’m going to listen to them.

“I’m going to keep my friendship with her. And hopefully one day people will look at her for her contributions and stop looking at her for her faults. That’s my hope.
Ah, yes, the many contributions of Naomi Campbell to the cause! Being the second black supermodel (the first was Beverly Johnson)! Making it safe for unbelievably gorgeous Amazonian perfect-bodied black women to make outrageous sums of money! Being a trailblazer in the field of using cell phones as weapons against underlings, peons, lackeys, and assistants! Making bitchitude a career! Yes, Naomi Campbell has done many things to further the struggle of the Everywoman of Color. She is a beacon of hope, like Coretta Scott King or Rosa Parks. You're so right, Terrence! Please just don't be boinking her...

I love how he just casually mentions that his "public persona is on par with Sen. Barack." Nice ego.
