Danielle Staub, take note. Supermodel Naomi Campbell is totally on team Teresa Giudice.

"She's a role model," Campbell told Bravo's Andy Cohen on Thursday's Watch What Happens: Live of the Real Housewives of New Jersey star. "A mother, businesswoman, [who's] cooking, cleaning the house -- and her kids always look...amazing!"

Giudice was flattered by Campbell's words of praise.

"I don't know how I do it, I just do," she said. "Everyone asks me, I swear to God, but I have a lot of energy. And great genes, I guess."

The supermodel -- who was sentenced to community service in 2007 for throwing a phone at a maid, among several other angry outbursts -- says she could sympathize with Giudice's emotional confrontation with Staub on the Aug. 30 episode.

When Staub claimed that Giudice failed to acknowledge the birth of her nephew on the Aug. 30 episode, Giudice leaped out of her seat, got two inches from Staub's face and screamed, "Do not bring up my family!" before hurling other expletives.

"I understood," Campbell says of Giudice's decision to shove host Cohen to the side when lunging at Staub. "She didnt see [him] at that moment. you mess with her family and that's what you get!"

Giudice, on the other hand, stands by her actions.

"I dont regret anything I do," she told the pair. "I stand by it -- I'm not like Danielle!"
