    Yeah she better pray The Giants are gonna win just like last time 🙂

    I really don’t see the big hoo-haa over Gisele’s email.

    Im not a person who prays … but I have no problem sending good energy to a friend waiting to hear on an important job application or sending positive thoughts to someone waiting on test results etc.

    And yes – I’d send good luck or positive energy to a friend (or husband!) who was running their first marathon…… Or playing in the Superbowl.

      1. I am a Pat’s fan *don’t hate me, I was a fan for the decades when they sucked, too 😉 *
      2. I don’t care for Giselle’s pompous ass one bit

      But here’s the thing, I kind of thought it was sweet of her to be thinking of him like that. It would be like if I emailed my mom that my hubby had a big presentation at work the next day and he was stressed about it. Maybe I’m naive, but it seems nice to me that she’s thinking about her husband that way.

      • The.princess.leia says:

        I, too, am a Pats fan…in Saints Land! People give me crap about it all the time and call me a bandwagon fan but I’ve been a fan since they lost the SB to Green Bay because of my dislike of GB.

        I’m hoping the Revenge Bowl goes NE’s way!!!!

        ETA: I don’t hate Gis. I wish she’d keep her mouth shut sometimes. However I do like that she, at least publicly, is showing support for the Pats. I don’t think she’s an actual bad person. I believe she sometimes speaks without thinking of how Americans will interpret her words and things get lost in translation so to speak.

      • layla says:

        Delta – I agree! 🙂

        Im no football fan (rugby girl here)… but who hasn’t sent out a similiar (private) email asking for friends and family to send their love/thoughts/good energy/prayers (if that’s your thing) for an important event in ones life.

      • AJ says:

        I am a lifelong Pats fan too! I cannot stand Jinxelle. Ever sinc she met TB they haven’t won anything. But, they do need all our prayers Sunday. Thinking about the game makes me want to throw up.

    • Pia says:

      GO PATS!!!! I don’t pray for anything, so I’m not going to pray for this… but I heard Tebow is rooting for the Pats so Jesus is clearly on our side LOL!!!!

  3. originalone says:

    The funny thing? She owned up to it. She confirmed sending the email.

    How embarrassing for her husband that his wife is sending out a chain letter out there, so God could drop the hungry children, the dying people in war-driven countries, the tortured and the poor, so her husband could win the Super Bowl.

    • brin says:

      Yeah….maybe she should pray for a sensitivity chip.

    • Sam says:

      Seriously? That’s ridiculous. I mean, if you do believe in God, and it isn’t just the praying that “offends” you, don’t you believe then that God is capable of helping more than one person at a time? She isn’t the first person to ask for others to pray for a certain outcome, and considering the game is his job, is it such a horrible thing that she wants him to excel at it? I just don’t get all the anger over it.

      • originalone says:

        @Sam, I wasn’t angry, I was being snarky. Huge difference.

        But if you are talking about what offends me, well here you go:

        – That Jesus who was more of a poor-man’s man would take time out of helping people in need to help a ball player, who is paid millions of dollars every year, win a trophy

        – That Jesus, that same poor-man’s man, would take time out of helping the homeless, so that ball player, who owns an outrageously lavish house, where he is to live with his wife, son, and maybe some servants, and that could house more than 15 families comfortably, is expected to drop the homeless in need, and give the ball player a trophy.

        – That God who had given already so much to these narcissistic, elitist twits, is expected to be harassed by all their friends screaming at him to drop everything, and channel his energy to give them even more.

        – That everyone thinks they could use God as a front to their beliefs in none-ties, a football game of all things, and kiss a model’s ass, because she is asking you to pray for her elitist husband.

        See, this is mad @Sam. That people keep on throwing prayer like it the answer to how much more they are deserving than the rest.

        Pray, meditate, or don’t. It doesn’t matter to me, as long as you don’t throw it in my face because of your beliefs.

        Live and let live.

      • DrM says:

        What is offensive is that these are very wealthy, hugely privileged people who are asking for some sort of Divine Intervention in an activity where a ball is thrown around by people who get completely overwrought even thinking about the outcome. I pray and I like sport. But I do find this utterly ridiculous. What would make God decide to choose your particular team, over any other particular team, including the one you are playing against to win? What merits such action?

      • YokoDMV says:

        @originalone – God doesn’t allow us to put those kind of limits on Him. Understand that God is SO VAST and SO LOVING that yes, even something “small” like a football game matters and has meaning, not only to us but to Him… and instead of being bitter about another’s blessings (and whether you feel they are deserving or not) think of all the ways God has blessed you personally. There is nothing wrong with Giselle wanting her friends (or the public who so choose) to pray for her husband’s game. And Sam is right, you sound angry hopefully you aren’t one of those people feel who intellectually superior to acquiring a full understanding of the Most High.

    • Julia says:

      I think there is one element you fail to grasp which is cultural.

      Gisèle is brasilian. Brasil is the biggest catholic country in the world; The redemption Christ in the Corcovado is one of the most visited satute in the world and a symbol of the braslian fervour toward catholicism, how they include it in their daily days life.

      Sport and prayers and farvour to God to help them during plays is typical in Brasil.

      Soccer players will be seen praying together before entering into the field. During one of the world cup which led to Brasil winning, they all get down on their knees praying to God. It’s cultural and very ingrained into Brasil culture as well as into some african catholic countries.

      • anon says:

        Agree Jesus is everywhere there (Huge statues in every city) Churches everywhere, Deities, everywhere you go. (well perhaps not everywhere just everywhere I seemed to go)
        YokoDMV says:
        “God doesn’t allow us to put those kind of limits on Him. Understand that God is SO VAST and SO LOVING….” agree with this poster. God (if you believe in God) is not a man. His abilities are not limited to what anyone may think.
        I don’t watch football,will be rooting for the Giants (live in NY) people that pray over football here will be praying for the Giants 🙂
        Whatever happens God already knows 🙂

      • anon says:

        Your comment was well articulated thank you.

    • originalone says:

      There it goes again,

      The close-mindedness that conveniently lets organized religion affect your reading, or editing someone’s words, in order to form an incomplete opinion, and utter confrontational words.

      It’s harassing this continuous objective to state that any action taken when faced with hardship, or hopes and dreams, will result in failure, when not injected with one’s own religious beliefs.

      Yet @YokoM, after giving me YOUR understanding of your mighty high, there you go feeling quite comfortable telling me not to be “one of those people feel who intellectually superior to acquiring a full understanding of the Most High.”

      So this clearly means that you feel entitled to your superiority in understanding fully what the most high means us to do?

      Doesn’t matter if Gisele is Brazilian or what not. My original point is making fun of sending a chain letter of prayer, so her husband wins. NOT THE FOOTBALL team, but her husband.

      It’s the silly, childish, and misreading my words, or putting intentions where they are not, that are to my belief, the most UN-CHRISTIAN thing one could do.

      It’s just sports, and a has-been underwear supermodel who tells you what to eat and put on your skin. Get over it. God has.

    • DreamyK says:

      Thank you for this. What a bunch of narcissistic ninnies Tom and Gisele are. What’s next? That we should pray that their $20 million mansion closes escrow on time?

    • originalone says:

      @DreamyK and DrM, Thank you!

      You know what frustrates me? Every time we approach anything that has to do with religion, we are always attacked for our comments. And NONE of them do the Jesus-y thing and apologize, for either being out of line, or misreading your comment in the first place!

      And second, reading through this thread, I’m realizing that I AM the one being all respective and protective of all things Jesus-y. ME, an atheist. Shit!

    • Jaxx says:

      I think God is very aware of hungry children etc., and can lend Tom Brady strength and wisdom to do his best in the superbowl without dropping the rest of the world. Playing football may seem foolish to you but it is Tom’s job and his future depends on how he performs, just like anyone else’s job. I think it was very sweet that she asked for support from friends and family and from God. I also think it is a shame that the press pried into a private message and then held it up to ridicule.

      • originalone says:

        Aah @Jaxx, I have more respect for your message, and its gentle meaning, than anything else “religious” people had thrown at me. Yours is quite peaceful actually.

        Let us be clear, I’m not challenging the wife who is supporting her husband, and praying for his success; Rather I’m challenging the narcissistic twit who belittles mothers that do not breastfeed, and had stated that breastfeeding should be made into a Law. The idiotic know-it-all who stated that mothers who put sunscreen on their children’s skin are stupid. Or the arrogant snake that had told the world that she told her stepson to call her mommy, before asking permission or discussing it with his own biological mother (Bridget Moynahan). And so much more “Goopy” behavior, that an elitist ignorant thinking she knows best, had tried in so many ways to teach the poor people how to live their lives.

        And please, let us not talk about the fact that some four years ago, she made Brady cut his hair, BEFORE THE SUPER BOWL!!! 😉

        That is the Gisele, who on top of it all, is sending all “her” people a request to pray for her husband’s win, is the Gisele that I’m criticizing.

        You gotta wonder though, if she is so loved, how come people had sent in her ridiculous “request for prayer” EXCLUSIVELY to the NY Post, of all media!!! Yeah, we gotta give leeway here to the possibility that “her family and friends” do not appreciate that self-serving request for prayer either. IMO.

  4. lucy2 says:

    You’re not alone in your love of glitter bombing. It’s probably wrong, but I can’t help it.
    I’m excited for Mindy Kaling’s new show! I really like her.

    Sorry, Gisele, but I think I’m going to pray for people who aren’t multi-millionaire football players married to supermodels. 😉

  5. The Original Mia says:

    I thought it was sweet. She loves him. Don’t see the big deal.

    • Venice says:

      It was sweet.
      If anyone doesn’t think (at least some of)the Giants aren’t doing some of thier own praying for Sunday, maybe someone should hack into some of thier emails.
      Go Pats! My hometown,Foxboro. Have always been a fan.

    • Lili says:

      I agree. Gisele always seems to say things to piss people off, but she wants her man to win on Sunday. Hell, wouldn’t we all ? If I had Tommy as my husband, I’d want him to be happy too…ah…to dream….

    • JB says:

      Exactly…and it was a PERSONAL, PRIVATE e-mail. It was sweet.

  6. nan says:

    Well, they do need more money rolling into the household, after all, they now have that new Mega-Mansion that probably needs a large year-round staff.

  7. ZigZagZoey says:

    I guess hacking is still very alive and kicking….

    • originalone says:

      Are you talking about Gisele?

      If so, she wasn’t hacked, she had sent out an email asking all her friends to make it into a chain letter. Which she has confirmed herself this morning, I think to the NY Post.

      • Linney says:

        No one confirms anything to the The Post. That paper is trash. She did confirm to other outlets that she wrote it. But read it-she didn’t ask anyone to forward it or make it a chain email. She sent it to family and friends and called them a chain, as in, the people she emailed it to, not anyone else.

        What that means is that someone she sent it to decided to give it up to the press.

      • originalone says:

        Here is the link. In which she personally confirms that she intended it as a chain letter.


        To think that you can control a chain letter… is a bit silly, isn’t it? The point of a chain letter is to reach the most people possible… Right?

      • P.M. says:

        No, she did’nt intend it to become public. I read the link that you provided and it stated “She was surprised they had it as it was intended for close friends and family.”
        The email asked the recepients to join a “positive chain” in support for her husband.

  8. Tastykakes says:

    Well, I’ll just do nothing as that’s the same thing. Also, she kind of reminds me of a racehorse.

    • Pia says:

      lol I agree about the praying thing, but don’t say such things about horses!! I don’t think Giselle is as ugly and mannish as some folks do, but there are definitely some prettier Thoroughbreds out there!! lol

      • Tastykakes says:

        Pia, you are correct. She may be built like a racehorse, but generally they are prettier. I agree strongly.

  9. LL says:

    Go eat a sandwich, Gisele.

  10. The.princess.leia says:

    I LOVE Shannen Doherty! I hope her show does well. She’s the Grade-A Bitch I hope to one day become!

  11. islandgirl says:

    That was sweet but BIG BLUE is going to take this one again. GO G-MEN!!

  12. Talie says:

    I think it’s sweet that these two have a solid marriage. I think they’ll be in it for the long haul.

  13. RobN says:

    I really kind of hate Gisele, but it was only a note to family and friends. It’s not like she had the Pope saying a special mass for him.

    I think, though, that there’s a pretty good chance she will track down whomever leaked the e-mail and have them killed.

  14. missanne says:

    “look at the attention I get…Its because I throw a football. But thats what society values,” Brady said. “He didnt invent the game; we did. I have some eye-hand coordination, and I can throw a ball. I dont think that matters to god.” -Tom Brady Aug 2008

  15. lisa says:

    I thought it was sweet. She clearly loves the guy.

  16. lisa says:

    I thought it was sweet. She clearly loves her husband.

  17. Jules says:

    Gisele is another woman I’d like to slap the smug smile off of.

  21. Zelda says:

    Okay, I find Gwyneth Paltrow annoying with her commentary on marriage and family, but I have to say that I find Gisele Bundchen insufferable…

  22. lolalalalalola says:

    What is wrong with her e-mail? It was sweet and coming from a nice place.

    God forbid a wife loves her husband and cheers him on!

    • someone says:

      I agree, I think it is sweet and not at all out of line for a wife to email. Anyone who reads anything evil into this is just crazy.

  23. Scarlet Vixen says:

    Hey, I’m a huge football fan (well, sports in general), but God has more important sh*t to deal with than poor Tommy’s ego. When I was 14 playing junior varsity volleyball and running track I’d pray to God to help us play well and win. But, I quickly realized that God has better things to worry about than my ego and desire for bragging rights. Brady has plenty of SB rings, and plenty of money. His wanting God to like him better than Eli isn’t going to benefit anyone, and it’s pretty selfish imo. Pray for his/both team’s health and safety, sure. Their physical health is their livelihood and football can be dangerous. But please save the, “Love my husband’s team better than the other team, God” prayers.

    That being said, GO GIANTS. 😉

  24. Heather says:

    This is so sweet! I too pray for my husband and I would certainly do so if he had a big game, meeting, etc. He is an attorney and I always pray for him when he has a trial, a big meeting, hearing, etc. Good for Gisele for sticking to her Catholic roots! So many celebrities lose the values that they grew up with when they make it big and worship money and fame. It makes me like Gis to know that she sent this thoughtful and sweet email.

    • (Another) Heather says:

      Agreed Heather – what some posters don’t understand is that praying is a normal conversation that happens on a daily basis, over every-day normal things sometimes. Praying doesn’t stop once you’ve reached a certain amount of wealth or success. I will pray for my family’s safety, health, or strength for certain events. I would never pray for a certain outcome on a football game, that’s not what it’s about. Seriously, people are so angry about this but for Christians it’s just a normal conversation with God.

  25. Sachi says:

    I know this is Celebitchy, and God knows I’ve done my fair share of bitching here (esp. about Lazy Kate Middleton), but I also cut people some slack.

    Gisele wasn’t doing anything wrong. Yes, she has said some things that rubbed people the wrong way, but I don’t understand why people have a strong disdain and even resentment towards her that anything she does is seen as if she has killed someone’s dog and she must be vilified for every little thing.

    She hasn’t committed any crime. She’s not known as a party animal and strong drinker. She has never been reported to dabble in drugs.

    She’s always been reported to be extremely professional, optimistic, and energetic. The people she’s worked with only have very positive things to say about her.

    Maybe it’s just cultural differences here that makes her a frank, straightforward person and that offends some people. But I honestly don’t see anything wrong with what she did. I have my own relatives send emails asking for prayers for their family members whether it’s an exam in University or heart surgery.

    I never realized asking for prayers and support is seen as bad nowadays.

    When did it go out of style to be nice to someone and wish them luck? When did it become a negative thing to ask others for their support? Asking them for prayers doesn’t have to mean Gisele actually wanted them to pray for her husband. It was more of sentimental/emotional support, and the “it’s the thought that counts”.

    I’m sure God is not burdened with Gisele’s prayer. I’d rather think that God is pleased that Gisele turns to Him for strength for herself and her family. Praying for Tom’s success doesn’t take away from the other problems all over the world.

    Gisele actively helps others, too, so it’s not like she’s this vapid person who only “prays” whenever she needs to do so. She has a long list of charitable work that would put others to shame. She’s not a bad person, and this email is nothing to get angry about.

    • TheOriginalVictoria says:

      I love what you said. Let’s get some things straight.

      No prayer is too big or small. Her heart was in the right place and she was praying for husband and his success. Let’s stop putting what we think is ridiculous and projecting it on God. He’s omnipotent so I’m sure her prayer didn’t affect his ability to hear other prayers.

      I just wish people who weren’t into “organised religion” felt the need to try and smear/joke about it all the time to make themselves feel superior because that is basically what is done and they know they do it and get all offended when other people get offended at their trying to educate us on how we’re fools. It’s a passive agressive attack and it’s disgusting. Just as it is for people of a faith to look down and talk about people who don’t participate.

      Lastly, I have nor problem with coming at rich folk when they are straight up greedy, evil bastards, but God does not hate rich people and just because you have money doesn’t mean you can’t have a faith and aren’t allowed to ask or pray for things. Sheesh. We are the one who pays these people ridiculous amounts of money for entertainment, At least Gisele tries to use at least some of her money for charitable acts.

    • RdyfrmycloseupmrDvlle says:

      Your missing it. Giselle is just not a likeable, relatable or sympathetic person. Not the least of which is caused by her continual, smug foot in mouth disease. This has nothing to do with her prayer and everything to do with a long history of silly stupidly wealthy model bragging constantly. Shes just not well liked.

      • TheOriginalVictoria says:

        Well, I love her, have always loved her. And whether she is well liked or not, she wasn’t bragging to anyone. She was talking in private to her family and friends and someone leaked it. She didn’t not spout her views on the public about her husband playing, instead the public is judging her harshly for her PRIVATE email because of things that she said in the past.

        I don’t find anything she says all that offensive. She’s a a beautiful model, who seems professional always, cares about good causes, and loves her family and is Catholic in some of her views about life. I don’t even f#&@ with Catholics but I never feel as if she’s forcing it on anyone. She’s simply speaking from her experience.

        That being said, I recognize she’s not everyone’s cup of tea but you’re missing the point, the point is, is that she-this time around-didn’t do anything that could possibly be construed as offensive. People are all over the nation right now praying it up big for the same damn thing and ARE publicising their chains so…

  26. Playlist says:

    Do you think her husband isn’t nervous playing in the biggest sporting event of the year? Being in the Superbowl is a major career responsibility and a lot is riding on it for all of the players (both on and off the field). This isn’t like the Oscars where it can be more of a kiss-ass popularity contest rather than talent. The players in the Superbowl actually have to prove their talent to win, and answer to a lot of people when they don’t. It may be entertainment to people watching the game, but to the players it determines their future job opportunities, not just in football, but after they quickly age and can’t play anymore. Many Superbowl players have after-football careers based on their face/name brand, made because of Superbowl wins.

    I find it disgusting that the whole world is sitting around trashing a wife’s support of her husband. I’m not married, I hate football, and I don’t care much either way about Gisele or Tom, but finding fault with a personal email that shows her support for her husband’s career is just wrong. People pray and send energy for all kinds of things. It’s not our business to choose what it should be for anyone else. Just because someone is rich and successful doesn’t mean they don’t need support from their spouses. How would you treat this email if it was about one of her kids being in a school play?

  27. MST says:

    Despite the fact that beloved EAGLES stink, I do love football. But I don’t really think that God cares about a stinkin’ football game (or a hockey game, soccer match, etc.). S/He has more important things to worry about, like poverty, world hunger, you know, that sort of thing.

    I hate both teams and I won’t be watching. I wish they could BOTH LOSE!

  28. sm255 says:

    This seems kind of harmless on Gisele’s family’s part.

  32. jferber says:

    I think her face looks different. I wonder what she has done. I appreciate the perspectives of Originalone and DrM. How vapid of Gisele. I agree that “narcissistic twit” really covers her. I wonder how much, if anything, she has done for charity. My bet would be zilch. ‘Cause it’s all about her, of course.

  33. heathnic says:

    All this love for Gisele and people still sh*t on Tebow for doing the same thing? Heck, I don’t take either seriously but at least I’m equal opportunity.

  34. missanne says:

    praying: a way to feel like youre helping without lifting a finger.

  35. “study shows stupid people more likely to be racist and conservative”

    rude. being conservative does not mean racist, but lumping an entire people group together because of a stereotype is bigotted, and tagging on words like “stupid” just fosters ignorance. it’s ironic that a line like that can be slipped into a list of links hinting that somehow hating on people with a certain type of political/personal bent is somehow striking a blow against prejudice.

  38. Dirty Martini says:

    Because everyone knows that God is for the Patriots, right? @__@

    Seriously, does this ninny not understand that praying and visualizing that Tom and his team are celebrating their win is pray and visualizing that the Giants lose and in mourning?

    Does anyone really think God picks football teams to win and lose?

    Everyone knows God is a basketball fan, and that the “chosen one” is Dirk Nowitzki. GO MAVS!

  39. samira677 says:

    I find it hilarious that people are in such a rage over Gisele’s email. I’m sure the people who are so disgusted by the request for prays have also prayed for insignificant things like not getting into, getting a promotion, and even sports events. Before games there are always tv shots of the team in prayer hoping for a win, nobody gets injured, etc and nobody whines about that. I really don’t understand why people are so judgmental when it comes to somebody they hate but couldn’t care less when anybody else does the same thing.

    I didn’t care about GB before, but I can’t stand her now. Such disgustingly poor taste.
    And Tom should be ashamed at how he has allowed her to emasculate him, I mean, look at his hairstyles over the past year!

  44. Angel says:

    Go Giants -_-

  45. Gigohead says:

    Right Gisele, I’m going to pray for a guy with MILLIONS of dollars, mansions and luxury cars with a trophy wife. Yeah..I’d say a prayer squeezed in between finding a cure for cancer and sending world hunger.

  46. eternalcanadian says:

    Whatever floats Gisele’s boat is her business. I’d be more concerned who in that circle of family and friends leaked that personal and private email and kick them out ASAP.

  47. Adrien says:

    Whatever! I’ve asked crappier, even more superficial stuff from God. I don’t know anyone who prayed at night for world peace and actually meant it. Maybe 3 year olds.
    She’s typical Brazilian, how’s this news? She does not have control of the games, what else can she do? Cast a voodoo curse on the Giants?

    This whole thread makes me incredibly sad. Do you know how many times I’ve talked to my mom and mentioned one of my kids was sick, keep him in your prayers? Or my husband is having a hard time at work, send him positive thoughts? Does this make me a selfish a-hole becuase I believe in prayer and keeping the ones I love in my thoughts and in the thoughts of those I love? I’ve said lots of prayers when my mom was going thru a tough time. It doesn’t mean that I don’t want the poor fed and kids with cancer to get better for Pete’s sake. This email was sent to people close to her (or so she thought). People need to lay off. Freedom of religion means she is free to pray, just as others are free to NOT pray.
    I can’t believe that a thoughtful act from a wife to a husband gets such hateful backlash. We really are failing as a society.

      THANK YOU for this post. Many negative posters on here- “What about WORLD PEACE Gisele!? What a twit”- just want to feel superior by judging another person’s prayers and concerns.

    • Kimberly says:

      sorry but if i pray it’s not for a guy who makes millions to win a ring. This is why people hate that fugly bitch Gis.

  49. Mitch Buchanan Rocks says:

    I wonder if Tom has a brazillian wax?

  50. Kimberly says:

    sorry I’m not watching the super bowl this year. I don’t care about the east coast at all, so I don’t follow their teams.

    As for praying for your man G? Nahhh . . . . I don’t like either of you guys and I’d rather use a prayer for someone who doesn’t get paid millions.

  51. Meanchick says:

    Dear God,
    Please tell Gisele to STFU!

  52. laura says:

    The thing I never understood about those who pray is this: why would ‘god’ answer your prayers and not someone else’s? I’m sure the opposing team members and their families are praying for a win. Whoever wins, the members of the winning team will say ‘god answered our prayers.’ Why didn’t god answer the losing teams prayers? Similar to families where a child is diagnosed with cancer. If the cancer is ‘cured’, god has answered their prayers. But what about the family who lost their beloved child? Did they not pray enough, hard enough, long enough? Why were their prayers not answered?

    I feel sorry for people who lean so heavily on religion and the idea of ‘god’ and ‘heaven’….I think they must be sad and lonely and are trying to suppress or hide from something.

    Funny Gisele manages to send the family e-mails all the time without incident, yet days before the SB somehow this one gets leaked. . .Hmmmmm

  54. Agatha says:

    I don’t see anything wrong with her request. We are supposed to pray for anything our heart desires. I feel she should have sent that prayer request to her family and church group not to the public. She should be savvy enough to know that in these times, that move would be controversial.
