Victoria's Secret Model quits

Hi all.
This one just made my eyes roll back out of my head.
Basically the girl entered a contest to be the next Victoria's Secret model. Then, partway through her contract, she was 'disgusted' because she suddenly (after 3ish years) realized that what she was doing was just being alluring and titillating men. She said she was surprised it was about being sexy and not just about 'the clothes'.

omg! Celebrity gossip, news photos, babies, couples, hotties, and more - omg! from Yahoo!

What do you think? Should she have known? She was in a contest in sexy underwear. Then modeled from 2009-2012. Should she be shocked and disgusted at this point?

She's an idiot. I couldn't get to the link you posted so I Googled another story on her. I'm sorry, how can you look at ANY Victoria's Secret ad, let alone compete to become a model for them, and not think it's about being sexy & provocative? Has she never even looked at their catalog? Dumb.

I actually pretty much agree with this quote in the article:

Perhaps Andre Drew put it best (and most PC): "For me its in the middle. I'm sure she knew what she was getting into, I mean come on its Victoria secret. But on the other hand if she felt tht her religion wasn't really right with her line if work then she should get out if they are treating her 'like a piece of meat'"

It is very common for people's convictions to change as they move through life and grow. I didn't really take out of the article that she DIDN'T know what she was getting into...more that she didn't know how it would make her feel. I agree it would be ridiculous for her to be a VS model and expect that she wasn't supposed to entice men or be sexy. But I respect her for taking control of her life when she decided it wasn't for her, and getting out of it (as it said, she gave up a multi-million dollar contract).

What I'm not sure I agree with is how she is handling it. I want to think that she's hoping by publicizing her decision that she might help someone else who feels uncomfortable with it make the decision to get out...but it could be that she just wants attention over it. I hope it's the former, but I can't know her intentions.

I agree with this comment in the article.

"She knew what she was getting in to, but she can grow as a person and decide it's not the life for her... good for her for making up her own mind and not letting anyone convince her to continue something she wasn't comfortable with," Dianne Shook Brubaker posted.

Hahaha. So instead of stripping nude she is TALKING about stripping nude and is lying and fabricating this relationship that didn't really exist for profit?

She sounds super moral. And she looks very......worshipfull? here

Seems this naive little thing has found a lucrative way to turn just two modeling events for Victoria's Secret into even more cash. She's written a book and she's developed a line of "Christian" clothing. Hmmm, wonder if that nice conservative, respectable swimsuit in the photo above made the cut?

"Ms. Bisutti has made numerous fabrications and misstatements of fact regarding her brief association with Victoria’s Secret. In 2009, Ms. Bisutti won an online amateur modeling competition and hasn’t worked for us since that year. The prize for the winning contestant was the unique opportunity to a one-time walk in the 2009 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Ms. Bisutti also participated in a swim photo shoot in 2009. That was the extent of Ms. Bisutti’s involvement with Victoria’s Secret. She was never a Victoria’s Secret ‘Angel’ as defined by the terms of our Angel model contract. And contrary to Ms. Bisutti’s claims, she was never offered any subsequent modeling contracts or opportunities with Victoria’s Secret despite her multiple appeals for further work. She has repeatedly fabricated her work experience with Victoria’s Secret — including a relationship that simply did not exist."
