Naomi’s model behavior; Spelling’s bedside manor

Admittedly, it’s only mid-morning, but already, the papers are blaring on both coasts of celebrity encounters with “the help.”

Naomi Campbell has performed a Blackberry hat-trick, nearly braining her maid in the process.

The stress of a scheduled appearance on Oprah appears to have taken its toll. It makes us wonder: What the hell is in that couch? Catnip? Gamma Hydroxybutyric Acid? Pringles?

Simultaneously, Aaron Spelling‘s legal tete-a-tete with his nursemaid will be available for all to see, the LAT reports. (Spelling’s nurse alleges she was asked to dress up like a prostitute, amongst other charming anecdotes.)

Our favorite Spelling quote? Not exactly a denial, per se: “I have absolutely no recollection of engaging in any of the conduct that she alleges.”

In other words, “I might have asked you to dress like a hooker, but I was so hopped up on Cialis, who could remember?”

Look for this one to settle by mid-April.
