Ladies, you’re always doing silly lady things like crashing the car, or burning the steak, or going over your credit card spending limit, aren’t you? It makes your boyfriend/husband/obedience trainer so mad
! But! Instead of delivering the bad news the normal, direct way, why not try stripping down to your adorable matching lingerie set to let him know his new Prius is now permanently inoperable? Isn’t that what Gloria Steinem taught us to do? [Copyranter

Chances are you’ve never heard of Fluvia Lacerda, but all that’s about to change. Fluvia was just named the Best Plus Commercial Print Model of the Year by Full Figure Fashion Week.

UN Goodwill Ambassador, mom, and model Gisele Bunchen is now also a cartoon environmental crime fighter. She is the star of a new web series for AOL Kids called “Gisele & The Green Team.” In it, she basically plays a girl version of Captain Planet, guiding the teens she works with at a clothing store to stop eco-disasters.

Come to think of it, it’s hard to think of an example of airbrushing gone right, but this London Fog incident is certainly disturbing. According to WWD, the company, which shot the campaign at the beginning of Gisele’s pregnancy, decided to erase her pregnant stomach in order to “respect her privacy.” It seems parent corporation Iconix, who also owns Rampage, transferred the supermodel to their London Fog division so she could wear trench coats instead of tight-fitting jeans. Is this some kind of bizarre maternity discrimination? If they were so concerned about hiding her pregnancy, why did they have to shoot her naked beneath said coat? And most importantly, how freakin’ weird does this ad look? [WWD]

After New England wiped the field with the San Diego Chargers back in January, they were Super Bowl bound. Quarterback Tom Bradyâ€™s girlfriend Gisele was so confident in her manâ€™s abilities that in an interview, she joked, “If the Pats lose, Iâ€™ll run naked through Midtown Manhattan.” Bam, that was a shot heard round the world! Bill Belichick, the Patriots coach, was distressed by all the noise, saying, “Gisele opens her big mouth and look at ‘em — half the guys are staring into space, the others are leering like they’ve just stumbled onto their uncle’s private porn stash. And who can blame them — that’s one fine specimen.”
While Gisele has a body that just wonâ€™t quit, thereâ€™s been speculation that she caused the undefeated Patriots to give it up at the Super Bowl, in the hopes that their loss would make her lose her clothes. Well, can you blame them? The Pats have three championship rings, but normally no chance at seeing if their teammate’s girlfriend is really Brazilian. Now Gisele is trying to do damage control by claiming it would take her too long to strut through the hordes of people in New York City. Wah-wah, a promise is a promise lady! Giselle has been pussy-footing around, and tried to soften her statement by saying she would flash Times Square. But while the Giants paraded through the streets of Manhattan today, Gisele still has yet to show us the stuff Super Bowl winners are made of. The least she can do is stand and deliver. After all, why should Tom Brady be the only one allowed to make a pass at her?! [Egotastic]
