GENERALLY, I don't think of anyone who engages in cat fighting on a reality-TV show as a success. But, for Sandra Woodley, who was raised by a teen mother, bounced from school to school and lost a brother to street violence, becoming the most-talked-about contestant on Oxygen's modeling reality show, "The Face," is a huge accomplishment. It could turn out to be the career break of a lifetime. Supermodel Naomi Campbell, one of three leading ladies on "The Face," has taken a personal interest in 21-year-old Woodley's modeling career.

Naomi Campbell was sentenced yesterday to 200 hours of community service by a London court after pleading guilty to assaulting two police officers during a so-called "air rage" incident in April at Heathrow Airport. (Air rage? More like Naomi just being - Naomi.) The supermodel, who also was ordered to pay a $4,600 fine, $400 a pop to each cop and $300 to the captain of the flight she disrupted, was lucky: Her plea deal let her avoid a jail sentence of up to six months. Naomi's rep said the celeb, most famous for weaponizing her cell phone, was "very, very relieved" the incident was over.

The Bolshevik revolution in NaomiLand grows apace: Yet another comrade has risen up against Naomi Campbell's reign of haute-bourgeois terror.

IN NEW YORK yesterday, the big story was that supermodel Naomi Campbell got in a fight with her maid. Police didn't make much of the whole matter, but the New York Post did. The tab said that Campbell ended up on her back in the brawl and that housekeeper Millicent Burton was so badly scratched she ended up in the hospital. "She's still swollen," Burton's son, Khirlu, told the Post. "Naomi has hit her before. " Reps for Campbell (she has an advantage here as her maid doesn't have reps)

GET IT IN writing, first, girlfriend. Then, start flapping your gums. That's a lesson supermodel Naomi Campbell should have heeded before she started spreading word that she'd been offered a starring role in "Chicago" on Broadway.

SMILEY-FACED actress Julia Roberts is aghast - horrified we tell you! - at the universal order of things, specifically in Hollywood.

Case in point is our favorite mannequin, Naomi Campbell, who's being sued for $2 million in a Manhattan court by one Georgina Galanis of Long Island City.
