Naomi Campbell: Tantrums and Diamonds

I love a testy bitchy model, and they don't come any testier or bitchier or more fabulous than Naomi Campbell, best known for being an Olympic Cell Phone Hurling Gold Medalist. In an interview with ABC News, Campbell was asked whether she had been given a "blood diamond" by deposed African dictator Charles Taylor.
Bitch wasn't having it.
She stormed out, and trying a new approach, she apparently tried to hurl a camera AND a cameraman!
Allegations that Campbell received a "blood diamond" have been raised at Taylor's ongoing U.N.-backed trial in the Hague for crimes against humanity. Taylor is the former president of Liberia accused of using uncut diamonds to finance a campaign of terror in Sierra Leone between 1997 and 2001. Prosecutors want to know if Taylor gave Campbell the gift as they try to directly link the warlord to uncut diamonds, but Naomi won't help the international criminal tribunal.
Apparently, blood diamonds are a model's best kept secret.
