The press had cast Naomi and I as rivals before we ever met each other,” she said. “Back then there were 10 top models … but there was an unwritten rule that only one of them could be black. And Naomi was that one black girl.”

I love the idea that the modeling world is like some big-breasted version of the Highlander where silk-skinned beauties spend their days bitch-slapping and jello-wrestling each other in order to become The One. If that’s the case than Tyra was wise to quit, because Naomi is constantly beating hell out of anyone she runs into. But what really pisses her off is when you pinch her butt and call her Naome-so-horny. Not a good idea.
