Gisele Bundchen is still drawing fire, four days after she blamed the Patriots for costing hubby Tom Brady a big Super Bowl win. Even running back Brandon Jacobs – of the Giants, no less – snarked during their victory celebration that “she just needs to continue to look cute and shut up.”
But there are a few folks out there in the realm of the famous who think Gisele was justified in criticizing the team’s poor playing. As spouses and parents themselves, they feel a kindred spirit with a mom trying to keep her husband’s spirits up – even if she has to put others down in order to do it.
Donald Trump is one of them. And he knows about outspokenness.
In an interview with Access Hollywood, The Donald – who’s a family man as well as a billionaire – defended the supermodel’s loyalty.
“She’s standing up for her man,” he said. “And Gisele didn’t do anything wrong. She’s standing up for her man, and she happened to be right. They were dropping balls all over the place.”
The famous Giants fan and father of five also had kind words for Brady, saying, “He’ll always be a winner. Don’t forget he won three [Super Bowls]. He’s a fantastic guy, a fantastic player – Tom is a winner.”
How much you wanna bet Gisele gets an invite to be on the next Celebrity Apprentice?
Gisele also felt the love from some fellow model-moms.
Victoria’s Secret Angels Doutzen Kroes and Adriana Lima told MTV News that Gisele was just putting her family before the unspoken code of silence that sports wives are supposed to uphold.
Kroes, mother of son Phyllon Joy, said, “I don’t know the whole deal about it, [but] I think you always have to stand up for your husband; you’re a team. And you know if she did that, I would have done the same.”
Lima, mom of daughter Valentina, was brief and to the point: “Leave her alone!”
A third Angel, Lindsay Ellingson, said in part, “I don’t think she meant anything bad by what she said, and she was so passionate, I don’t blame her.”
Feel better now, Gisele?
What’s your take? Is it better to stand by your man, or show support for his crew?
