Gisele Bundchen will not renew her contract with Victoria's Secret, which is about to end its five-year term. Why? Page Six reported the brand was unwilling to give the supermodel a raise from her $5-million-a-year salary. TMZ reported Gisele refused to share the runway with Leonardo DiCaprio's girlfriend, Israeli supermodel Bar Rafaeli.

If you're not familiar with Rafaeli, she's the most famous–if only–supermodel to come out of Israel. She was also the first Israeli to appear in Sports Illustrated's swimsuit edition.

I like her because for a model she doesn't look like she's dying–which is another reason, gossip mongers say, VS and Bundchen split. After she quit smoking, Bundchen reportedly gained 15 pounds. She said:

"When you stop smoking you gain weight, because food tastes better than when it tasted like ashtray."

Amen–or should I say aWOmen–Bundchen! Her weight gain also contributed to rumors she was pregnant with boyfriend Tom Brody's baby. Can't we congratulate a girl who gets healthier by ditching cigs and putting on a few pounds? Of course not. When celebrity women put on a few–or lose a few too many, for that matter–their careers are over and they're spotlit on that week's bump watch. Whatev. Cigarettes are bad. Gisele still looks slim and stunning.
