Gisele Bundchen is reportedly stepping down as lead angel for Victoria’s Secret because they refuse to increase her $5 million-a-year salary. Her sister confirmed that contract talks had broken down and a source says:

“Her demands were outrageous. She got a new lawyer who was unrealistic. Victoria’s Secret doesn’t care. They have five new hotter, younger girls debuting next year. And they won’t have to deal with any craziness.”

I’m a fan of Gisele, but asking for a pay increase when you already make $5 million is crazy. Her job is to stand in front of a camera and occasionally walk down a path. Considering the difficulty, a box of animal crackers and a balloon should be enough.

    I agree, however, she is still hot. Isn’t Gisele like 45 in model years? That would make Cindy Crawford like 92.

  2. no1justminda

    GOOD, I’m sick of seeing that man in a bikini!

    This chick is fucking crazy and manly as hell. A monkey could do what she gets paid 5 million to do and she wants more? Jizz-el, come back to reality.

  4. FRIST!!!

    $5,000,000. Look at that face! How’s that worth 5 mil? If that’s the case, I’m worth 6 mil. Unless skinniness is part of that. Then I’m only worth 4 mil. Oh, and unless tallness is part of that. And then I’m only worth 2 mil. But hey, 2 mil??? I’ll take it!!!

    5 million dollars just isn’t worth Gisele’s time anymore. If VS wanted to keep her, they were going to have to come up with more dough than that. She already makes 30 million dollars a year, and has a lot of stuff on her plate right now. Like working on becoming Mrs. Tom Brady. I seriously doubt they could have kept her even if they offered 10 million.

    In January I saw her running through the airport to catch a flight to Brazil. Although she seemed to be a nice girl (as in not stuck up), she is totally average in person. Tallish, thin, pretty, but not one of the deprived Russian perverts near me, even looked up at her as she walked by.

    In the adverts, however, it is a totally different story. She looks smoking hot!

    One hour of hair. Two hours of make-up. Photo Shop. Airbrushing….

    Let’s face it. Anyone who saw Kate Moss in Phuket over the Christmas holiday knows most models are not “natually beautiful”.

    For those of you wthout the SK5000j sound card on your computers, I’m presently barking at that pic of her.

  9. Truthseeker013

    Re #56- this chick wouldn’t be beautiful if every other woman on the planet were to leave.

  10. UNCLE NED

    What happened to her beauty? One second it was there, and now it’s gone.

  11. fergernauster

    That’s Steffi Graf in that pic.

  12. woodhorse

    Unless she just wants to retire, that was a really stupid move on her part.

  13. Daffy

    Holy fuck I thought that was Steffi Graf. LOL Imagine how much that would piss off the dumb bitch.

    $5 million a year just for being nothing more than a very skinny chick who can walk a straight line turn and walk back… FUCK ME what is wrong with the world that this all seems normal

  14. sxbby963

    “5 new hotter, younger girls coming up next year.”

    Ouch!

  15. LeeLee

    If you only got your job because of the way you look, it’s stupid to even think about arguing over money as you get older. Modeling is like the only job where the longer you’ve been doing it, the less seniority you get to pull.

  16. endometriorama

    umm, that’s totally fine. more adriana lima for us all

  17. anothershityear

    #54 lol, post-o’-the-day

    from your self-estimating pay-scale comments, i gather that

    - your face closely resembles that of Rachel Weisz
    - you weigh between 128-137 pounds
    - your height is in the range 5’5-1/4″ and 5’6-3/4″

    can’t really be too accurate with the info given, after all money isn’t everything

  18. heyheyhey

    hahaha #37

    the only thing I laughed at, and it had nothing to do with the story

  19. beer

    Oh my God! How is she going to feed her family now that she’s UNEMPLOYED!!! I bet she can’t apply for COBRA bnefits!

  20. anothershityear

    #66 she’s gettin’ a bit long in the tooth too

    c’mon talent-scouts, go back into that forest in Brazil where they grow all those 5’11″ supermodels, and have them crank out a couple more dozen of them

  21. iamsosmrt

    I never understood why VC’s top model was a man anyway. I’m glad the Tranny’s on her way out.

    She is a greedy useless freak. They all are. Models are basically whores and we all know whores shouldn’t be paid more than $5 dollars.

    These Vicky Secret models look pretty hot in the catalogue, but in real life walking down the street all gigantically tall (like 6’2″ in heels; taller than most men) with crazy stick boddies and big manly feet they look like freak shows. I’ve seen them walking around Paris and New York and they look like miserable hungry alien pod people. And no one is looking at them. In the airbrushed pics these girls are hair extensions and push up bra’s all the way.

    These ho’s just love modelling because in highschool they were the too tall girls who got ignored while the pretty femine girls got all the attention. Eat it up amazonians cause it will only lasy for a few years.

    You don’t see a lot of super tall old ladies walking around. Think about it.

  22. Yourfairytale

    #71 is right. What’s so great about being so damn freakishly tall? I feel much more feminine not standing over every single guy in the room.

    And Gisele is fugly and always has been. People are hitting that nail on its ugly head when they say she looks like a man. I don’t get how some supermodels are considered beautiful. Gisele? Kate? No and no.

  23. Manny

    ROFL. Doesn’t Gisele do other stuff like commercials for make-up or something? That is APART from the salary she gets from VS. 5 million is still a lot of money considering what she does. Whatever, Alessandra, Adriana, Izabel and Selita are MUCH hotter imo. See ya Gisele, lol.

  24. They must have been airbrushing that nose. that thing is hideous. otherwise, shes gorgeous. Whats NSFW?

  25. you're/soaking/in/it

    My neighbor, a close friend of DiCaprio family for years, told me Giselle got $60 million for a 3-year contract with Victoria’s Secret when she was 22 yo. That’s $20 million a year, folks.She and Leo each gave $500,000 to save the Amazonian rain forests. Very nice of them, since I read Leo only gave $48,000 to charity last year, making him one of the cheapest celebs of all time. His gifts that keep on giving have taken a distinky nosedive.

    Well, Giselle’s a haggish 25yo, and that contract has now expired. If they are offering her $5 million, that’s a big pay cut from the $20 mil.

    She is 120 in model years. VC will replace her with someone from Croatia who’s 15.

    P.S. Giselle has 4 sisters who look similar to her, without the boob job

  26. anothershityear

    #74 in the case of Gisele B., it stands for

    Nose-So-Fucking-Walloping

  27. Kate

    She’s not hideous, but she is overwhelmingly average, or maybe a little below-average. Her looks are not worth $500, let alone $5 million. These celebrities can just pull their heads out of their asses already and realize they’re overpaid.

  28. robbonz

    very sad if true tothe word, a woman with her experience & stature should humbly accept whatever so long she needs to do something to keep her busy there is not very much else she can do well + thats a fact

  33. o yeah, i own

    damn i could see that hook nose from miles away. wow, it’s amazing what air brushing can do these days. Gisele is just retarded. why the hell would you keep asking for more money when you already make millions of dollars a year? Gisele, give up the modeling career and go save the amazon or something. believe you me, you will not be missed.

  34. kitty_kat

    #72- I fail to see how a woman who stands at 5’11″ is freakishly tall. I happen to be 5’11″ and feel just as feminine as a any 5’4″ woman. Just because you don’t have height, doesn’t mean you should insult any woman who does. Women come in different shapes and sizes. You are not any less of a woman for being tall, just as you are not any less of a woman for being an A-cup. And that’s my two cents.
    That being said, Gisele is damn insane! What’s wrong with five million a year???

  35. NicotineEyePatch

    She looks like her last name sounds. Not my type.

  36. September_bebe

    How’s she OLD? that alessandra ambrosio and adriana lima are barely a year younger than her. THEY’RE the ones that are YOUNGER? Not by much my dear, not. by. much.

  37. That’s fucking bullshit. I’m pissed.

  38. Tara_reid_loves_you

    Walk down a path, LMAO.

  39. It’s Time for a Change!
    #61 This is not Steffi Graf!

  40. YEA..DON’T YA JUST LOVE BRITTNEYZ COMEBACK,PRETENDED TO SING 5 (OLD) SONGS OF HERS..SOME COMBACK..SO NOW SHE’S ASHLEE SIMPSON…THAT’S FUNNY..ALL SHE CAN DO IS WALK AROUND LOOKING LIKE THE TRASH THAT SHE IS…

  41. shaun

    to be perfectly honest, i never heard of her until now. and to be honest again, i don’t think she’s so good looking anyway.

  42. Reality_Check

    Worst picture of Giselle ever. And Giselle is probably air-brushed in the print adds like every model on the planet today. She has a rockin body, nonetheless. Face is ok. Looks good when made up and hair done. But just an amazing body. No one can deny that.

  43. threearmedman

    If you’re a woman who thinks Gisele is average or even worse, ugly… You’re overwhemingly jealous.

    If you’re a man who thinks Gisele isn’t sexy or even worse, ugly… You’re overwhelmingly homosexual.

    Overwhelmingly homosexual with little to no taste.

    I think she’s the S-H-I-T! Especially in the company of a Lindsay Lohan or Britney Spears. Uniqueness is a gift.

  44. snarkygirl

    She’s done very well for herself considering all she has to do is parade down the catwalk in her undies. She should STFU and remove herself from the genepool. Her fifteen minutes are up.

  45. Highest-paid horse ever.

  46. LeShapeShifter

    ahhhh that’s too bad. Lucky for ME I go to church every Sunday… which means that when I die God will grant me three wishes. I will of course, use these three wishes to ask if I can have three of my very own hottie angels from the heavenly court. I jump out of bed every morning thrilled from the fact that in heaven, even the uglist angel are gonna be way hotter than those unattainable model “angels” here on earth. Yeah, those jaw dropping REAL angels will show the unattainable hotties of this world to be the fat, hideous mud creatures that they really are. Oh man, it’s gonna be so freaking sweet having gorgeous celestial beauties at my every whim and command. I’m going to have them hold me up forever, flying me around and of course, wave in and out of my transparent soul for all eternity. When they dive through my transparent crotch it will be billions times better than receiving oral from Alessandra Ambrosia, Karolina Kurkova and Petra Nemkova at the same time. Please God, grant me freedom from your lower realm.

    im tired of this HO. bitch retire!

  49. cybersoul

    I wondered why she wasn’t in any of the current VS catalogs. They are featuring way too much of Alessandra Ambrosio. I am getting tired of seeing her on every other page. They had recorded her voice on their phone line at one point and man, she sounds like a frog or something.
