Naomi Campbell Lines Up Chat Fest


Model Naomi Campbell is once again poised to follow in the immaculate footsteps of her one-time nemesis Tyra Banks.

Thanks to Tyra’s continued success with America’s Next Top Model, Naomi was able to score her own TV modeling competition The Face, which was recently picked up for a second season and is due to start airing in Australia and the U.K. later this year.

Likewise, thanks to Tyra’s former success as a talk show host, Naomi too is rumored to have recently been offered the opportunity to host her own daytime chat fest.

On the eve of her appearance at next month’s global television conference MIPCOM, Naomi reportedly dropped the news while discussing her plans to expand The Face to more markets overseas.

“I’ve been offered several opportunities by a major U.S. network,” Naomi reportedly told the Telegraph. “Right now I am focused on expanding The Face but I’m ruling nothing out. I’ve already started doing my research.”

Rumor has it the network is Fox and that they’re looking to shore up their daytime line-up with hosts they hope can bring in a younger audience, à la The Wendy Williams Show and Tamar Braxton’s The Real.

  1. I’ll watch! I think she’s very smart, didn’t jump on everything that was offered to her as branding grew and grew, now as her modeling days will eventually end, her transition will be major. Tyra (trailblazer) did pave the way for her show, Heidi Klum’s Project Runway and others. Naomi is quite competitive so, I would love to see how she would compete in this market, Queen Latifah is giving daytime the business, as is Arsenio at night, so one more black hat in the talk ring would be interesting!
