Model Unpopular With Football Wives?
Gisele Bündchen, a snob? If celebrity informants are to be believed, New England's most famous football wife is also its most unpopular.
Well, it looks someone will not be in attendance at the next annual Patriots wives' Tupperware party.
Gisele Bündchen's unwavering support of her husband, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, isn't earning the catwalker any pals amongst the other team wives, according to word 'round the blogosphere.
Gisele went viral Monday after she was videotaped slamming the Patriots' receivers for the failed plays she apparently believes cost her beloved "Tommy" a coveted fourth Super Bowl ring. The Pats' 21-17 defeat marked the second time Giants quarterback Eli Manning has bested Brady on the Super Bowl stage.
The Brazilian supermodel was caught on camera lambasting number 12's teammates after Sunday's game in Indianapolis. Bündchen made headlines for angrily defending her husband against taunts hurled by heckling Giants fans.
"Eli rules!" the exuberant fans yelled.
"Eli owns your husband," they joked as the former Victoria's Secret Angel made her way through Lucas Oil Stadium.
"You [need] to catch the ball when you're supposed to catch the ball," Gisele exploded. "My husband cannot f***ing throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time. I can't believe they dropped the ball so many times," she spat.
Of course, she mentioned no names. But Gisele was almost certainly referring to wide receiver Wes Welker.
Welker was widely believed to have made the costliest fourth-quarter drop. A spilled catch by tight end Aaron Hernandez also helped seal the Patriots' fate.
A distraught Welker later said he "let the team down" with his fumbled play near the Giants' 20-yard line, which came with 4:06 left on the clock and the Patriots up 17-15.
Those in-the-know at Gillette Field believe Gisele's mocking remark will only serve to make already tense relations between she and other, lower-profile Patriots wives even more strained.
"Gisele may have had a point, but she should have left it to the sports writers and other Monday morning quarterbacks… She already is not liked by many players and their wives due to her arrogant attitude… This sure won't help improve things," an insider allegedly blabbed to The Chicago Sun-Times on Tuesday.
One such (unidentified) Pats bride chimed in with this little tidbit:
"Gisele has very few friends among the wives. Of course, many are jealous of her looks and all that, but she doesn't make it easy to like her -- since she obviously feels so superior to all of us."
Talk about un-model behavior!
