*Naomi Campbell’s modeling competition series “The Face” will be riddled with brand partnerships in its second season.
Oxygen Media and Shine America announced Wednesday that pamella roland (the brand name is all-lower case) Alex and Ani, Liebeskind Berlin and Tweezerman have joined grand-prize partner Frederic Fekkai and editorial partner Elle Magazine as beauty brand partners, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The deal calls for both on and off-air extensions including in-show integrations, online cross promotions, the launch of consumer products and branded video content.
*Naomi Campbell is selling exclusive signed prints of herself in a bid to raise funds for the victims of the deadly typhoon that battered the Philippines on Friday (Nov. 8).
Local officials estimate that up to 10,000 people were killed when Typhoon Haiyan tore through the island nation, leaving thousands more seeking shelter as homes and schools were swept away.
The British model is offering her support by selling a limited-edition print for $30 (£20) each, taken by half-Filipino photographer John-Paul Pietrus, to raise cash for Red Cross charity’s disaster fund.
Pietrus tells Vogue magazine, “I was on the Red Cross website and thought that there must be something more that I can do than a personal donation, not only to raise money but to raise awareness.
“I immediately called Naomi to see what can be done and I suggested selling one of the images we’ve taken for charity. Naomi has always been passionate about helping those in crisis and I am grateful for her getting behind this initiative and coming up with a way of helping those effected by the typhoon.”

*Naomi Campbell is now giving out medical advice.
The former supermodel, 43, insists everyone should clear out their body on a regular basis and believes this can help them lead a longer life.
“I think everyone should fast at least once a week,” she told Heat magazine. “We eat so many different things; I think it’s good to clear your intestine. I think it can prolong your life.”
Naomi said she cleanses before her catwalk shows and implemented a strict diet of liquid fruit and vegetables this summer before she walked the runway at ParisHaute Couture Fashion Week.
But she can’t be bothered to prepare the drinks herself.
“No, I’m not going to do that,” she said. “There are so many places that deliver now, though.”
Naomi – whose mother, Valerie Morris, battled breast cancer – eats and drinks in “moderation” and claims seeing loved ones suffer from cancer made her think about what she consumes.
She told Heat: “I try to do everything in moderation. I don’t drink alcohol and I stopped eating pork and chicken. When people in your family have had cancer you look more closely at what you put in your body.”

*Rumors of a U.S. talk show hosted by British supermodel Naomi Campbell is gaining traction.
The streets claim that “a major U.S. network” is interested in giving the fashionista her own show.
“I can confirm that there are offers on the table,” Naomi’s representative told Vogue.com on Tuesday. “But I can’t elaborate further at this time due to ongoing negotiations.”
The 43-year-old supermodel has been getting plenty of on-air time lately between her campaign for more diversity on the runway and her reality TV show “The Face” being renewed for a second season.
“Naomi is a supermodel first and foremost, but she’s becoming much more comfortable on TV now and really finding her voice,” an unnamed source told The Daily Mail. “She’s a perfectionist and if she does give TV a go she’d give Oprah a run for her money!”

*Naomi Campbell has come a long way.
There was a time when the British supermodel may have beaten a journalist senseless with her bedazzled phone for asking a question that dared to stray from a pre-approved list of topics.
But when a reporter from Britain’s Radio Times magazine sat down with her recently and tried to ask about her ex-boyfriend, Vladimir Doronin, Campbell simply ended the interview and walked out.
“Before I get half the question out of my mouth, she cuts me short by holding out her hand like a policewoman stopping traffic,” writes journalist Kirsty Lang. “The two PR men sitting in the corner jump up and start to usher me out… My audience is over.”
