I have to say, I love love love this story, because it's so petty and ridiculous that it's hilarious. Plus, it emphasizes the power of the VS model.
A lot of people in the last few months have commented on Patriots' QB Tom Brady's new "I look like a 15 year old pop singer" hairdo. "Beiber's older brother" was my favorite nickname. Anyway, The Enquirer had a story recently about his do and how model wife Gisele Bundchen called the shots on it.
From the Enquirer:
"Gisele Bundchen doesn’t want her hunky NFL star husband Tom Brady to be thrown for a hair loss! She sent her QB to a top hair transplant specialist to deal with his thinning crown, the Enquirer has learned.
Brady - who was recently mocked by Justin Bieber for copying his trademark hair - showed up alone at Leonard Hair Transplant Associates in Cranston, RI, on November 9, where he saw Dr. Robert Leonard.
“Tom wants help with his thinning hair and bald spot,” a source told the Enquirer. “Tom parked his SUV at the rear of the building. He spent over an hour consulting with Dr. Leonard before he slipped out the back door and drove off.”
Tom, perhaps in an effort to compensate for his thinning dome, has grown his hair long this season. But sources insist it is Gisele who is behind his move to consider a hair transplant.
“She wants to maintain that perfect-couple image - the handsome quarterback with a full head of hair and the stunning model with her own long, flowing locks,” added another insider. “She pushed him to see the hair specialist."
Ok, now, I understand the balding thing. I don't do balding. I once was hooking up with a guy who had terrible thinning hair - it looked like it was kind of invisible, I don't know how else to explain it - and I had to actively make an effort to not stare at it, especially during sex. So I get the whole "I don't want my husband to be bald thing". But honestly? It's Tom fucking Brady. Dude would be hot regardless. Bic that shit and move on with your multimillion dollar lives and beautifulness.
If this is true, it's hilarious. But I don't know if I buy it. "She wants to maintain the perfect-couple image - the handsome quarterback with a full head of hair and the stunning model with her own long, flowing locks," I mean, lets be real. Take away the makeup and Gisele's face is kind of busted, so I don't know who she's kidding. Plus, this woman's had a baby. She's got flaws, somewhere. She might have plastic surgeried most of them away, but still, babies leave marks you can't erase. So I don't think she's as superficial as this Enquirer is making her out to be. If he's getting a hair transplant, I think it's on his own call.
However, I never noticed Brady's hair before this came to my attention, but I do find it kind of odd that he went from the typical "I wear a helmet every day" haircut where he seemed to own the receding and thinning hair, to this whole quaff. The quaff looks ridiculous, he's too old for it, clearly...but now that I'm looking at pics from different hair periods for him, it definitely looks like he's been trying to hide the skin with growing it out and combing it over. So maybe it is true.
Either way, I love that Gisele seems to be the one who wears the pants when it comes to the appearance portion of the relationship. You don't fuck with Vicky S models. They will always win. I don't care how many Super Bowl Championships you have, trust shimmying your ass down the field in 5" heels in thong panties and making it look good. Gisele tells you to get hair implants, you get hair implants. It's the word of the Victoria Secret.
