Naomi's No Phone Zone

Blackberry-hurling supe Naomi Campbell turned up at Harpo Studios to film an episode of Oprah, and if the people of the world ever doubted Oprah's power and magnanimity, well, let's just say the woman is a miracle worker. Because, in addition to getting Campbell to open up about her recent, ahem, camera-punching incidents and her career in fashion, Winfrey got Naomi to cry (!), convinced the model to sign a "No Phone Zone" agreement—to not use cell phones while driving—and a No Phone Throwing Zone pledge. True story. [WWD]
