Seen above making the face that she and every working housekeeper makes whenever they think of Naomi Campbell, Tyra Banks has brought out the dead, dusty horse that is her feud with Naomi and continued to beat it like Naomi beating a maid with a BlackBerry. Tyra and the father of her kid, Erik Asla, were guests on the Norwegian-Swedish talk show Skavlan last week and their conversation turned to how she was terrorized by Naomi back in the day.
Tyra wasn’t only on a Norwegian-Swedish talk show because she wants to make sure that the entire planet knows about her supermodel battle with Naomi. She was also on because her man is Norwegian. Tyra talked about going to Paris as a newbie model and that led her to talking about her Neon Demon-like situation with Naomi the Terrible. Tyra says that when she was the new bitch on the scene, the industry pitted her against Naomi. Tyra became the Nomi Malone to Naomi’s Cristal Connors. Tyra said it was a shitty time in her life and the thought of Naomi Campbell still makes her shake with fear. via Page Six
“I got to Paris and it was very difficult I did very well, very fast. But then the industry was saying, ‘Look out Naomi Campbell, here comes Tyra Banks, Naomi Campbell sit your butt down, this younger one is coming to take your place. It wasn’t fair to Naomi, but her response was … to this day I’m very scared of her
I don’t want to go too deep into the past, but it was very difficult, like some of the lowest times of my life dealing with that. I don’t condone her actions and her response, but I understand where it comes from because the world is saying, ‘You’re not going to have your spot. We’re going to take your money, we’re going to take your fame. Go sit down, there’s somebody else.’”
As everyone who has a Bachelor’s Degree in this feud knows, Naomi was on Ty Ty Baby’s talk show a while ago and they seemed to kiss and make up. Naomi apologized and Tyra said on Skavlan that the apology meant everything to her. But she’s still scared of Naomi.
Tyra is always so extra when talking about her well-done beef with Naomi. What did Naomi do? Tyra acts like Naomi kidnapped her and held her hostage in a basement where she was forced to do all all sorts of torturous acts like sleep in salad, face-plant onto plexiglass, host a tarantula on her face, get a fake face beard and run past swinging pendulums. Actually, it would make sense if Naomi did all of that to Tyra. It would explain why Tyra tortured youngins’ for years on America’s Next Top Model.
And here’s Naomi making the paps fall to the ground with just one hand gesture while going to a party in NYC last week:
