Catwalk to Perp Walk
Was Judge Robert Mandelbaum attempting to teach Naomi Campbell some humility by sentencing her to janitorial duty at the New York City Sanitation Department?
From The New York Times:
Ms. Campbell pleaded guilty in January to a misdemeanor charge, acknowledging that she had lobbed a cellphone and hit her maid, Ana Scolavino, on the head. Ms. Campbell was ordered to pay Ms. ScolavinoÃ¢Â€Â™s medical expenses, $363, attend a two-day anger-management seminar and do five days of community service, of which yesterday was Day 1.
The 36 year-old supermodel has some infamous anger issues, but was making her a laughing stock really the best way to teach her a lesson? Why not have her talk to groups of girls or find some other more productive outlet for her?
Broom and mop detail is meaningless. Compared to standing in the snow in next to nothing or dealing with fashion nazis, cleanup is a cakewalk. Naomi is a smart business woman. She will milk this free publicity for years to come.
