Naomi Campbell is happy to poke fun at her infamous phone-throwing incident.

The supermodel and Face star told CBS This Morning on Tuesday that she "would love" to be on Saturday Night Live.

When asked if she's prepared for the phone-throwing jokes that would come with an appearance on the sketch comedy show, Campbell said she can handle that.

"Of course, I'll take that. I pretty much get it in every interview I do," Campbell said. "I did a Dunkin' Donuts commercial with Zach Braff, was directing, the actor, and that was kind of in that vein. I mean, it's not nice to the person, and I've apologized for that, but the actual action, I've made fun of myself."

Campbell pleaded guilty in 2007 to charges of assaulting her maid when she threw her cell phone and it hit the woman in the head. She was sentenced to community service and anger-management classes.

Campbell has since been open about her issues with anger and told CBS This Morning, "We all make our mistakes. We all go through it. I've never denied my mistakes. I've never shied away from them. I've been the first to say, 'Hey, I'm in recovery.' "

When asked why she's so controversial, Campbell joked, "Because I'm British maybe … I'm a Gemini; I don't know."

The supermodel also reveled that she'll be working with some of her fellow original supermodels -- Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington, Stephanie Seymour, Claudia Schiffer and Kate Moss -- on a secret project in a few weeks.

She wouldn't reveal why they were reuniting or where, but she would say it was taking place at "a very nice, sunny, warm place on the water."

The supermodel also talked about missing Nelson Mandela, who called Campbell his honorary granddaughter.

"He meant everything to me," she said. "When I got in trouble or anything, I ran to him always. …He was my safety net. You know, he never, ever… made me feel bad. It was like he was there to support."
