$60 Million Supermodel Gisele Bundchen Needs to Shut Up and Stop Dictating Breastfeeding to Women

Be quiet and get a life -- a REAL life, Miss. Perfect Supermodel Mom, Gisele! When you pronounced to the world in the new September issue of British Harper's Bazaar that there "should be a worldwide law, in my opinion, that mothers should breastfeed their babies for six months," you became new mom enemy #1.

How dare a pampered 30-year-old model who earns $60 million a year tell the world's far less fortunate non-supermodel moms that they are negligent for giving "chemical food to your child when they are so little"? That chemical food would be baby formula.

Here's Gisele's full statement, so you can absorb it yourself: Some people in the U.S. "think they don't have to breast feed, and I think, 'Are you going to give chemical food to your child when they are so little?' I think there should be a worldwide law, in my opinion, that mothers should breastfeed their babies for six months."

By the way, Miss Know-It-All Gisele is the mother of a 7-month-old son, Benjamin, and is married to the equally wealthy Patriots quarterback, Tom Brady. The pair is sooo wealthy in fact that they are building a $20 million, 22,000 sq ft mansion with a six-car garage in Brentwood, CA.

To say that she has ANY concept of what real life moms and especially real working moms have to cope with when they are trying to breastfeed is the UNDERSTATEMENT of the year.

This is a woman who is waited on hand and foot while she shoots her Victoria's Secret Angel, Dolce & Gabbana, Versace, Valentino, Ralph Lauren, Michael Kors, and Louis Vuitton advertising campaigns and her dozens of Vogue and Harper's Bazaar covers. I know -- I've been on those type of shoots, and supermodels like Gisele are beyond pampered by the stylists, editors, photographers, and hair and makeup people from even before they set foot on set. That's what work is like for her! Does that sound like YOUR office or work environment?
