'I was angry', Naomi Campbell tells anger management class

'I was angry all day really'

Battling supermodel Naomi Campbell last Saturday did the first of two anger management classes she was ordered to attend as part of the punishment for chucking a mobile phone at housekeeper Ana Scolavino, the New York Post reports.

In January, 36-year-old Campbell pleaded guilty in a New York Court to a reckless assault rap and was duly sentenced to do five days' community service, pay Scolavino's medical expenses of $363, and learn to control her temper.

Suitably repentant, she told the class's fellow angry people: "I was angry. I was angry all day really, and then it just got to be too much. I threw my cell phone at a person, a person who worked for me. I don't know why I did that. I was angry, so angry, but I realise that is not an excuse for what I've done."

Campbell further pledged: "I do honestly feel very sorry. I don't know if people will believe that. I mean I cannot believe I am sitting here. And, I have said it before, but this time I truly mean it. I feel sorry and I am really going to learn from my mistakes."

Accordingly, it is with heavy hearts that we at El Reg announce the indefinite suspension of our "When Supermodels Attack" thread. With the Streatham clotheshorse on the straight and narrow, and no current rival coming close to the level of anger required to step into her Jimmy Choos, it appears the world's housekeepers can take off their crash helmets and get on with their dusting in peace. ®
