Naomi Campbell has always been "afraid" of being on television. The 42-year-old British beauty mentors aspiring models on new show The Face and admitted she initially felt uncomfortable at the thought of being on camera as she has always been keen to protect her privacy.
"I always said I don't want to do television because I was afraid of it, to be honest, and what the fear was, [was] that I had tried to live as privately as I [could] so I didn't feel it would be in my comfort zone to have a camera following me around. But this was a whole different thing. It's not that way at all. It's me getting to share 26 years of what I have been blessed to learn and know and find out about and achieve, with girls who want to be in our business and that's far more fun."
At the height of her career, Naomi - along with Claudia Schiffer, Linda Evangelista, Cindy Crawford, Christy Turlington and Kate Moss - was regarded as a supermodel but she dislikes the term, and believes it is now overused in reference to current "working models."
As we mentioned last week, film star Lindsay Lohan is scheduled to make several appearances on the small screen.
At the end of this month, Lohan will show up on Ugly Betty as a former evil classmate of Betty’s. In addition to the season finale, Lindsay will also turn up in five episodes next fall. Here are our first glimpses of Samantha Ronson’s gal pal in action.
By the way, May 22 will also be the day when we see British Airways’ biggest nightmare: Naomi Campbell.

In the past few months, controversial stars have seen their share of the comedy spotlight. First, we had Britney Spears on CBS’ How I Met Your Mother. Then NBC welcomed Paris Hilton on My Name is Earl. Now it’s ABC’s turn to jump into the action.
For Ugly Betty‘s season finale (airing May 22), the producers will be bringing on troubled supermodel Naomi Campbell. (Apparently she hasn’t done anything to ban herself from the show’s set.) Like Victoria Beckham’s cameo last season, Campbell is expected to play some version of herself. In other words - Amanda better hide the staplers.
And just a reminder, Project Runway fans should make a point of tuning in on May 1. That’s when Christian Siriano and Nina Garcia are scheduled to make their entrances.
