    Default Kylie Bisutti Quit Modelling Because She "Felt Like a Piece of Meat"



    Kylie Bisutti
    gave up modeling for God -- and she has no regrets. In her new memoir, I'm No Angel, the 23-year-old model explains why she quit being a Victoria's Secret Angel in 2012 to focus on her faith after the industry put her through hell.

    The California-raised beauty had always dreamed of being a model. Soon after becoming a Christian at the age of 15, Bisutti moved to New York to pursue her career goal -- but it wasn't as a dream.
    "I pretty much restricted my diet to oatmeal, fruits and vegetables to meet runway expectations," she recalls to The New York Post. "I'm 5-foot-10, and I got down to 115 pounds with measurements of 34-24-34. In February 2007, New York Fashion Week was approaching, and while everyone I knew was being sent out to auditions, I wasn't."
    Why? Bisutti claims that her agent berated her, allegedly saying, "It's because you look like a fat cow right now, Kylie. You need to lose 2 inches off of your hips."


    But that changed in 2009, when Bisutti's curves were embraced by Victoria's Secret and the stunner, then 19, beat 10,000 other girls to win their model search. Soon after she got to work, however, the newly married Christian woman felt uncomfortable.
    "I was being paid to strip down and pose provocatively to titillate men," she tells The Post. "It wasn't about modeling clothes anymore; I felt like a piece of meat."
    "Two years after I won the Angel Search," she says, "I realized I didn't want to model anything that sold sex."


    Now, Bisutti said she's happily living in Montana with her husband Mike and volunteering at their church. "I've never been more content," she says. "I no longer restrict what I eat. I weigh 124 pounds right now, but my ideal weight is 125. I want young girls to see me at a healthy size."
    Bisutti's book, I'm No Angel: From Victoria's Secret Model to Role Model, hits stands on May 14. The former VS model says she hopes her memoir spreads her message that "beauty isn't about what you look like, it's about what's in your heart."

    Christian babble aside, I can see why she would quite modeling. 34 inch hips on a 5'10 frame for women is pretty damn slim, to lose 2 more inches on top of that is absurd.

    Is this dingbat serious?

    ^ Seems like she can, somewhat, count. She has that to fall back on now that she's culled her modeling career.

    Good for her for not doing something she isn't comfortable with. You can tell she still obsesses about her weight even if she says otherwise, because of how she says she's 124lbs but 125 would be her ideal - still counting every lb. It's nice she found a life that really made her happy.

    She's out of the industry, but still has a model's mentality, so is she really free/happy? Doesn't sound like it.

    ^ That is also true. Never heard of her so I googled and her photos are blehhh. She's a background VS Angel, good body but not the face to be one of the known ones. She seems sweet, I hope she is happy and stops counting every lb.

    Former Victoria’s Secret Angel Reveals The Horrors Of Modeling: Starvation, Posing Topless At 16, Forced To Sell Sex

    Posted on Apr 24, 2013 @ 11:51AM | By radarstaff

    From Victoria’s Secret Angel to devout Christian wife, Kylie Bisutti’s life has drastically changed.
    The winner of the 2009 Victoria’s Secret Angel Search competition opens up to the New York Post about her horrific experiences as a lingerie and swimsuit model, which include starving herself, being forced to pose topless at 16 and getting used by the industry to sell sex despite her religious beliefs – and RadarOnline.com has the details.
    Kylie, who admits that she wanted to be a model at a very young age, moved to New York City when she was just a teenager and was thrust into the toxic world of top models.
    PHOTOS: Victoria’s Secret Models Bit With The Acting Bug
    “New York really opened my eyes to the dark side of the modeling industry,” she admits. “One of my roommates was so bulimic she would involuntarily throw up when she ate. She would go to sleep crying every night and just look at herself in the mirror thinking that she was so fat. And she was so thin.”
    Bisutti, who had no problem staying away from temptations like alcohol, admits she experienced unwanted sexual attention from men in the industry.
    “I had photographers and male models hitting on me constantly. Once, a photographer actually pushed me up against the wall and tried to kiss me.” Gosh that is so shocking.....

    PHOTOS: Bikini Model’s Style
    Though she was attending church at the time and reading her bible, she was still talked into posing topless when she was only 16.
    “I was so desperate to succeed in the business that I complied when my agent told me, ‘All models have a topless shot.’ I was only 16 when I posed for mine.”
    Maintaining a very strict diet of oatmeal, fruits and vegetables, Kylie, 5-foot-10, dropped to 115 pounds and still wasn’t being booked for shows, so she asked her agent why she wasn’t getting any jobs.

    “It’s because you look like a fat cow right now, Kylie. You need to lose 2 inches off of your hips,” the agent told her, which thrust her into a starvation diet of just pineapples, watermelon and water, drowned with liters of water and paired with 12 hours of exercising a week So 2 hours/day then as you know she's taking sunday off! . She ended up 108 pounds and booking minor gigs.

    Bisutti met her future husband, a devout Christian, when she was only 18, and he encouraged her to enter the Victoria’s Secret Angel search.
    When she won, she was thrilled to be an Angel, and finally felt okay about her body image.

    “The curves that made me ‘too fat’ by runway standards were perfect for Victoria’s Secret,” she explains.
    However, the same day that she won, the reality of her new gig kicked in, and she was pushed by Victoria’s Secret executives to “get together with” a celebrity whose eye she had caught at the after-party.
    Despite having a husband, she was encouraged to play down her marriage and to flirt with “everyone all the time.”

    She details various horrific incidents she encountered during the next few years,from ending up on a porn site because a photographer neglected to Photoshop an image of her in a sheer bikini, as he said he would, to coming to the realization that she was being sold as sex.

    Two years after winning the contest, Bisutti decided to get out of the industry and sent out a tweet that read “I quit being a VS model to be a Proverbs 31 wife.”
    Bisutti, who currently lives in Montana with her husband, realizes that she sacrificed “millions of dollars” by hanging up her Angel wings, but admits that she has “never been more content.” Today she is focusing on creating a Christian clothing line is releasing a book, I’m No Angel: From Victoria’s Secret Model to Role Model on May 14.

    I wonder if she'll regret this when she gets older.

    and getting used by the industry to sell sex despite her religious beliefs
    so she accepted being a Victoria's Secret skank even though she's a fundie, but it's the industry's fault for not respecting her religious beliefs? Really? What did she think they were selling? Bibles?
    She sounds like a fucking retard, so really going from Victoria's Secret bimbo to fundie housewife seems like the perfect transition for her, as neither require any grey cells.

    I also looked up Proverbs 31 and was saddened by some of the things I've read. I don't know how any woman could willingly go along with these beliefs...

    Okay, I know I'm being judgmental here. Please forgive me. But if you Google this person's name with pic results, you will see the biggest set of fake pontoons ever in the lingerie industry, outside of Teresa Topps, and Wendy Whoppers. I think I'm making up those names, but they probably exist. I'm having a somewhat difficult time reconciling fitting two beachballs on a really thin frame with your desire to kind of keep a low profile in terms of people homing in your assets.
