to lose. I don’t want Team Naomi to lose. I’ve got to prove to my girls they’ve got what it takes to get out there in the real world. But I’m not the kind of coach that sugarcoats things. I tell them and try to teach them what it’s really like out there. I want one of my girls to win, and they deserve to win. They are great girls. Have you watched yourself on the show yet? I haven’t. I don’t know if I can, actually. I probably can’t. When I shoot pictures as a model I never look at the monitor. I like surprises. Are you afraid of how you might come off? If I do watch, I’m going to watch it more for the look. Not how I look, but the overall look. My name is on it and I want whatever I put my name on to look good. We’ve had all these special guests who’ve given their time. I want everyone to be happy. Do you lose your temper in any of the episodes? Of course I do! You wouldn’t like it if I didn’t. True. By the way, we’re following you on Twitter. It’s fun! I’m just sharing things that I like to read and say. Do you come up with the #Omiquotes yourself? Most of them. What’s an #Omiquote? Basically, it’s just a positive affirmation, like, “One day you will be just a memory for some people, but do your best to be a good one.” Things like that. Do you read a lot of self-help books? I do! What I like is that you can pick them up at any point. You don’t have to start from page one. You can have that book for 10 years and pick it up and say, “Oh! I never saw this part.” It’s like a constant companion. Any authors you’d recommend? I like Marianne Williamson. I used to go to this seminar a few years back in Phoenix. And I love Eckhart Tolle’s The Power of Now and every other book he does. Tony Robbins too. Is this a new thing for you? No! I’ve been going to these seminars in Phoenix for a few years. Marianne Williamson actually spoke at one. You can go, too. Your life changes and you find you’re not running around like a chicken with your head cut off. It’s basically just making time for yourself. You just sit there and let it all sink in. That’s what it is. Would you ever write a memoir? I don’t think so. It’s a hard question for me to answer because I’m a very private person. And with all of the wonderful people in my life that have been there from the beginning until now, I have to respect their privacy. I wouldn’t want to be disloyal. I don’t have anything bad to say, but I should probably just keep my memories to myself. Where do you live these days? I’m a gypsy, as always. Are you going to be at the Tents? I’ll be there. I don’t know if I’ll be walking, but I’ll be there. See you then! All right, love! g e tty i m a g e s ( 1 ) ; c o u r t e s y o x y g e n
