The first episode hasn’t even aired yet and already the catfights have begun behind-the-scenes of Oxygen’s new reality show The Face, according to reports.
A source has told the New York Post that the 42-year-old Brit is butting heads with Coco Rocha, while their fellow model Karolina Kurkova and Nigel Barker, the show’s host, remain neutral.
“Nigel is the only one who gets along with everyone,” the source says. “He’s been left as the host and the referee.
“You’ve got three models, all at different stages of their careers and different ages, and they are really not getting along.
“It’s a competition show and none of them are used to losing.”
According to another source Campbell is at the center of the tension.
“Naomi doesn’t have to have a reason not to like somebody,” the source says. “She just doesn’t like certain people.”
Meanwhile the model’s legendary tardiness seems to be another factor.
“There were some issues with Coco being on time and Naomi not being on time and Coco getting annoyed,” the source says.
“Coco’s a Jehovah’s Witness and she believes in being correct and polite and being on time. She doesn’t drink. She’s super straight-laced. So it’s been a real mess between [Coco and Naomi]…
“Karolina knows how to deal with Naomi. She’s known her for a long time. “
Rumors of a feud behind-the-scenes of the America’s Next Top Model-style show have not been confirmed. But Campbell tweeted yesterday: “I don’t need a certain number of friends, just a number of friends I can be certain of.”
