Naomi Campbell: I don't know if I've been a great role model

Naomi Campbell may have pushed past barriers in the fashion industry as a woman of color to become one of the most well-known names in the world, let alone the industry, but she still gets skittish when people start to toss around the “role model” label.

“Listen, I make many mistakes. Many mistakes,” she told gallerist Tony Shafrazi in Interview magazine. “I’m not a perfect human being…So I always get nervous when people speak about something that sounds like a role model, because I don’t know if I’ve been a great role model myself. I don’t think I have in certain aspects of my life.”

But, Campbell added, she is “trying to do better.”

'Parenthood' gets an infusion of 'True Blood'

'Parenthood' gets an infusion of 'True Blood'

This week's episode of "Parenthood" was called “I’m Cooler Than You Think," but what’s really cool is the actors they’re getting to portray the employees at Adam’s shoe factory.

They introduced Billy Baldwin as the head of the company in the season premiere and last night they introduced Mike, who’s played by Kevin Alejandro, known to “True Blood” fans as Lafayette’s man, Jesus. Maybe Alejandro is carving a niche as the hot guy lead characters are interested in.

Adam introduced Mike to Sarah at work, and he gave her a tip about a concert so she could impress Amber and her friend. Sarah's quite insecure about the fact the friend’s family is well off, and Amber has been spending a lot of her free time with her friend.  The concert plan almost backfired when Sarah’s name wasn't on the list and they got stuck waiting in line. But just as the trio was about to leave, Lafayette’s man showed up just in time to get them into the concert, and he also managed to impress Sarah and the girls.

Snooki pens novel about love at the 'Shore'

Snooki pens novel about love at the 'Shore'

You know what would make all of that gym time, tanning and hours spent at the laundromat go by so much faster? A nice good read about life on the "Jersey Shore."

That's actually a possibility now that pint-sized “Jersey Shore” star Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is penning her own novel, tentatively titled, “A Shore Thing.”

Polizzi, perhaps best known for brawling and getting thrown in the slammer for annoying people, will draw on those experiences to write a fictional page-turner about “a girl looking for love on the boardwalk (one full of big hair, dark tans, and fights galore),” according to a press release from the publisher, Gallery Books.

Surprising tweet leaves Blake Shelton speechless

Blake Shelton likes to shock fans with his tweets. But Tuesday night in Nashville, the country music star received an unexpected Twitter message of his own that left him struggling for words: "Blake Shelton, you are invited to join the Grand Ole Opry!"

Shelton and his pal Trace Adkins had just performed their smash duet, "Hillbilly Bone," during "Country Comes Home" - a concert to celebrate the Opry's re-opening after flooding damaged the landmark venue this past spring.

As the crowd cheered and rose to its feet, Adkins put his arm around Shelton's shoulders and said, "He's famous for doing the Twitter thing, you know he's always sending tweets. Well, the Grand Ole Opry sent Blake a tweet tonight. Here, look!" He then handed Shelton an iPhone with the Opry's cherished invitation to become a member. Shelton grinned broadly and put his hand over his heart, while his fiancee, Miranda Lambert, applauded from the audience.

Josh Holloway joins 'Mission: Impossible 4'

Getting a post-"Lost" gig was clearly not an issue for Josh Holloway. The 41-year-old actor is joining the fourth “Mission: Impossible" movie, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Although Holloway's popped up in a few indies, it’s the actor’s first studio picture. He's currently in final negotiations to appear in the film as a member of a secret agent task force headed up by "M:I" star Tom Cruise.

Holloway joins an ever-growing cast, which already includes Jeremy Renner, Paula Patton, Vladimir Mashkov, Ving Rhames and Simon Pegg.

J.J. Abrams, who served as an executive producer on "Lost," is also producing "M:I-4" along with Cruise and Paula Wagner. The production team has reportedly been scouting locations in Vancouver, Prague and Dubai, and are aiming for a December, 2011 release.

Behind the Scenes on 'Showbiz Tonight': The blunder down under

We debated for more than an hour in our morning meeting today over what would be the most provocative stories to talk about on “Showbiz Tonight."

Senior Writer Rob Melstein and I thought that Britney Spears’ big return on “Glee” was the hottest story of the day, but Executive Producer David Levine said you can’t ignore the heat around Sarah Palin on “Dancing With the Stars."

Bristol did just survive another night on “Dancing,” so Dave argued that you have to wonder if Sarah Palin’s presence in the ballroom helped Bristol avoid elimination. And what about “boo-gate?” Was Sarah Palin actually booed on the show? The truth is out!
