"I am ashamed of everything I've ever done," Campbell says on the Oprah Winfrey Show, "I take responsibility for the things that I have done and I do feel a great sense of shame."

Then Oprah asks: "Are you just a petulant diva who wants things her own way?" Naomi says "it comes from I think an abandonment issue."
