    Naomi Campbell's Saintly Reputation Back Intact

    That's some trick.

    Just a few days after a New York City chauffeur was threatening lawsuits and alleging that noted anger mismanager Naomi Campbell had given her housekeepers a reprieve and slugged him instead, the driver has recanted his sequence of events and offered an apology to the supermodel.

    "This whole thing has been blown out of proportion and I apologize to Ms. Campbell for causing that to happen," 27-year-old Miodrag Mejdina said, adding that he "got angry and overreacted" and regretted involving police.

    And just in case the world still isn't convinced, Campbell herself has jumped to her own defense.

    "I was accused of unacceptable behavior towards a driver in New York," the 39-year-old said. "I have worked very hard on correcting my previous wrongdoings and I will not be held hostage to my past.

    "I try to treat everyone with respect and I am pleased the driver has apologized. I would like to put the last few days behind me and move on."

    Preferably with someone new behind the wheel.

    Maybe Naomi Campbell should take a cue from our two-wheelin' celebs and avoid dealing with a driver altogether.
