For years, the “newly divorced celebrity woman spills her guts to Vanity Fair in a cover story” was a thing. Jennifer Aniston did it, Hilary Swank did it, Angelina Jolie did it, Jennifer Garner did it. It’s been a while, though, since we had a big celebrity divorce with a sympathetic and beautiful divorced lady who sits on her exclusive until she gets the call from VF. Maybe Gisele Bundchen will revive the genre? Page Six’s sources say that’s what will happen – Gisele will likely do a cover story with Vanity Fair for the April issue, or maybe one of the summer months.
Gisele Bündchen is set to break her silence on her split from Tom Brady in a Vanity Fair cover story, Page Six is told. The Brazilian supermodel, 42, has been spotted vamping for the cameras in a dazzling return to modeling — and looked fantastic as she sported a pink Chanel swimsuit during a photo shoot near her Florida home.
Now, sources say that the mother-of-two will pose for a VF cover and talk in depth about her divorce from NFL champ Brady for the first time.
A VF spokesperson said the publication does not comment on editorial rumors, but one Condé Nast insider told Page Six: “I could see this as a cover to celebrate Earth Month in April, as that’s a subject close to Gisele’s heart. But it could also be a summer cover.”
The model previously starred on the cover of Vanity Fair in September 2007 and May 2009. An industry insider mused: “I think this makes sense for Gisele. She’s come out of the divorce looking independent and smart.”
Bündchen, who topped Forbes’ highest-paid model list from 2002 to 2016, took a step back from that career to raise her and Brady’s children, Benjamin, 12, and 9-year-old Vivian.
I think she should! I would love to see a big, juicy exclusive for VF. That being said, people are kind of sleeping on the fact that Gisele used her Elle cover story last fall to telegraph her divorce. In that interview, she constantly referred to their kids as “my children,” indicated that Tom had consistently chosen football over family, spoke about how she put her career on hold to support Tom and her children and a lot more. That was when we knew she was DONE. Now, do I still think she has more to say? For sure, but will she actually blast the f–k out of the father of her children? Probably not. He would deserve it though.
Also, we recently heard that Gisele will likely go solo to the Met Gala this year. She’s also been traveling and working constantly since the divorce, spending time in Costa Rica with her special friend, doing editorial work, staying booked and busy. Gisele isn’t looking back. I love that for her.
PS… this story came out about 14 hours before Tom Brady announced his retirement. I hope Gisele talks about that sh-t too.

It’s unnerving how alike they look.
I wonder if it’s a narcissism thing–to be attracted to people who look exactly like you, regardless of gender.
Reminds me of a comment by Bianca Jagger. She said Mick married her because they looked so much alike it was like making love to oneself.
I thought the exact same thing! Freaky.
Same skin tone and eye color. When he got together withy Gisele she made him lose weight and they became even more look alike. The same thing happens in the gay community. Gay couples often look alike and some expert said something like “they want to love themselves that is why they look for men who look like themselves.”
Let Gisele and Bridget Moynahan become besties. Also, let Gisele reveal what she really did with that FTX insider trading info.
Nah, Gisele openly mean-girled Bridget. Bridget is a class act and deserves better.
I hope Gisele doesn’t go on the divorce-tour. It’s classless and absolute crap for the kids. She seems pretty kid-focused so hopefully she doesn’t trash their father for a brief blip of attention — she certainly doesn’t need it, her career speaks for itself. I’ve always found her to be petty (her football tweets were the worst) so hopefully she’s matured and can live her happy life without striking out.
You can do a cover story without being petty or trashing your baby daddy. Especially vanity fair would do more of a life after divorce not rehashing what went wrong. Like Kaiser said she already did that in her Elle interview.
Listen, as much as I admire G for taking a chance on herself and moving on from her marriage since it clearly wasn’t working for her, I still think she should be careful for the sake of the kids. They are still pretty young and need to protected and I think all of the parents do a great job of that for the most part.
I remember when John Brady was born and how Gisele acted like such an a-hole in those very early years. It took a lot for them (Bridgette & G) to work through everything and to actually appear to get along. Also, both G and Tom are Leo’s. How the hell did they manage to get along for as long as they did is beyond me.
Gisele is a Cancer, which actually makes her dedication to her home life and family make sense (Cancers find solace in their home life/family that they cultivate there). Once she was done she was DONE. Good for her for finally putting herself first.
We know Gisele did all of the emotional labour in their relationship and looked after the kids and the household, which allowed Tom to play football. What I’d love to know is how Gisele is doing All The Things now. I can’t see her leaving Tom in charge of their kids (but I guess maybe they’re with him?), and she seems like a very involved and hands-on mom. Do they travel with her and get tutored? Do they have a nanny, or maybe they’re staying with family? What are the logistics for making this happen? It’s amazing and I want to know more.
Omg, I didn’t realize that TB was potentially announcing his 2nd retirement due to this. Hahahahahahaha
He also has a movie coming out, and he probably is going to have to answer football and Gisele questions now. How on earth did she put up with him? As to trashing him, I think she’ll be subtle if she does, but she seems to be dealing well without him.
He put his career ahead of the kids. Giselle has such a simple, smart explanation. Everybody gets it. No scandal. She looks great. He looks like a guy who doesn’t value his family. She moves on.
