Entertainment News: Short Cuts: News on Naomi, Kimora and More!

Published August 30, 2007

Posted Aug. 30, 2007 -- Naomi Campbell probably faces many "wardrobe malfunctions" in her line of work. But a partially exposed breast at a Nelson Mandela tribute, it's not so appropriate.

The supermodel was reportedly on her way into a dinner at London's Dorchester Hotel to honor the South African leader when at least one of her boobies slipped out of her dress -- a yellow, flowy Alexander McQueen number with a plunging neckline. Luckily, she fixed herself up quickly, according to the press.

Mandela's dinner was to celebrate the unveiling of a 9-foot bronze statue of his likeness located outside the Houses of Parliament beside statues of Abraham Lincoln and Winston Churchill. Campbell became pals with the civil rights leader in 1991. She has credited him for inspiring her to get involved in charity work, and for giving her advice on her sometimes troubled, private life.

Kimora Shares the Downside of Reality Showbiz

Baby Phat CEO Kimora Lee-Simmons grew up with cameras on her, from her teen modeling days. But the reality show cameras aren't always easy to take, she tells the press.

"Yes, it is intrusive, it's reali-tay," Lee-Simmons said about being in the constant spotlight for her Style series "Life in the Fab Lane," which started it's second run on Aug. 29.  "It's sometimes very intrusive. I have two kids, four and seven.  A lot goes on.  It's reali-tay.  There's moments when it's all OK.  Like now, I knew all of you were going to be here.  But then, like, you're going shopping and you've got all these people there or you're going to the office and you didn't know the office was going to blow up that day or you didn't know the collection wasn't going to be ready.  It's things like that that make you go 'Grrr' but it's going to be OK.  At the end of the day we manage to get it done."

Letterman to Visit the "Oprah" Show

The decade-long rift between Oprah Winfrey and David Letterman is definitely over.

The late-night talk show host will make his first appearance on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" next month.Letterman will tape the interview, a rare appearance on someone else's show, on Sept. 10 at Madison Square Garden in New York, Winfrey's production company announced Wednesday.

The two talk show titans began making nice in 2005 when Winfrey appeared on CBS' "Late Show with David Letterman." It was Winfrey's first guest appearance with Letterman, though she twice appeared on his NBC show before the comic jumped networks in 1993.

Letterman frequently joked about Winfrey, and she rejected repeated offers to appear on his program. In 2003, Winfrey told Time magazine she wouldn't appear with Letterman because she had been "completely uncomfortable" as the target of his jokes. When Winfrey appeared on Letterman's show two years ago, she told him, "I want you to know, it's really over, whatever you thought was happening." Letterman responded: "Are you sure it's over?"

The nationally syndicated show will appear live in some markets and will be rebroadcast in others, said a spokeswoman for Winfrey's Chicago-based Harpo Productions Inc. studios.
