Naomi Thinks Court Is for Ugly People
Actually, I’m kind of just guessing that, based on the fact that she skipped her court date in Manhattan Criminal Court to face charges of assaulting her housekeeper. According to People.com:
“She is absolutely obligated to appear at the next court date or the law will go into effect. A bench warrant will be issued,” Judge James Gibbons told the supermodel’s defense team, Reuters reports. The case was adjourned until November 15. Campbell, 36, faces charges of second-degree assault for allegedly throwing a cell phone at her housekeeper, Ana Scolavino, in March. She could get seven years in jail if convicted. Campbell’s lawyer, David Breitbart, asked to explain his client’s absence to the judge privately, but Gibbons told him to speak on the record. “The press is all over this girl. There are over 100 cameramen outside this courthouse,” Breitbart said. “They have a right to be here,” Gibbons responded. After the session, Breitbart declined to say why Campbell was absent, saying, “She has a right to privacy.” Prosecutors said a possible plea deal was still being worked out.
In her defense, perhaps there was a catwalk emergency to which she was dedicating her super model powers at the time of trial. Many forget that with super model powers, come super model responsibilities–to save the world, one fashion disaster at a time.
