Is anybody not talking about Naomi Campbell at the moment? The 43-year-old - who's been modelling since she was 15 (you do the maths - it's been a mammoth career) not only has new show The Face about to hit UK screens, she closed Diane Von Furstenberg's NYFW Spring/Summer 14 show and somehow found time to speak out against racism in the modelling industry. Now, it seems the supermodel might even be given her own talk show.
A source told the Daily Mail, "Naomi recently gave a lot of tough news interviews on the subject of Diversity in Fashion and she excelled and really found her role as intelligent commentator and pundit fulfilling. She's had offers from Kate Couric, The Today Show and The View for her to be a guest commentator and/or anchor," they then went on to add "There's even been a major US network approach her for her own talk show."
Egads! Can you think of anything more glorious than a Naomi Campbell-helmed talk show? Naomi ( and we're just guessing at the name here) would have the no-nonsense attitude of Oprah, the dry humour of Ellen and the fun-factor of The Tyra Banks Show (minus the OTT schmaltziness of course). Ah, who are we kidding, there'll probably be a bit of Jeremy Kyle thrown in for good measure too. In short, we're guessing it would be a straight-talking show with serious attitude to boot that we can't wait to watch. Here's 5 things we're hoping for.
1. Naomi Giving Advice On Love
It's no secret Naomi's love life has been up and down more times than someone trying to stay upright in a pair of McQueen Alien shoes. The latest scandal is this: after mentoring model Luo Zilin on the American version of The Face, Zilin was then pictured holed up on a yacht in Ibiza with Naomi's (very) recent ex Russian billion Vladmir Doronin. How's that for sisterhood? How about Naomi's advice to audience members who've struggled with their love lives too? Maybe Naomi could even go all Jeremy Kyle and give naughty boyfriends a piece of her mind - we bet that'd leave 'em quaking in their boots.
2. Naomi Tackling Big Issues
Naomi's made her stance on racism clear. Speaking at this year's fashion weeks, she criticised the lack of diversity on catwalks. Alongside Iman she's set up a Diversity Coalition to combat the 'racist act' of having few or no models of colour on the catwalk. Using the (no-doubt super-successful) show as a platform, Naomi could stand up for her beliefs and lobby for a greater diversity in the fashion industry.
3. Naomi Showing Off Her Other Skills
Erm, did you know Naomi Campbell trained as a dancer? Us either. In fact, she even tap danced in a music video for Culture Club when she was 12. Tyra Banks is all about pulling fun stunts on her talk show - how about one-upping her with a quick number Naomi?
4. A Supers Reunion

Rule number one on a talk show; if you're big enough you can do anything. Look at that time Oprah took her whole audience to Australia. If Naomi really fancied a challenge, we're totally up for a Supers renuion episode. You know, Cindy, Claudia Christy, Linda - get the whole gang back together and find out how life post-90's has fared for them.
5. Naomi Dishing On Pal Kate Moss!
Remember that time Oprah went to Rihanna's house in Barbados and did that totally deep and meaningful interview? How about a Naomi-on-Kate Moss style thing in the same vein? Naomi could just pop over to Kate and Jamie's pad, stick the kettle on and have a good old chinwag - just you know, with cameras present.
