G isele Bundchen’s angry dissing of hubby Tom Brady’s New England Patriots teammates — as she exited the Super Bowl on Sunday night — has unveiled long-held negative feelings about the supermodel.
Other players’ wives and members of the Patriots’ organization gave me an earful Monday as Bundchen’s comments went viral. Reportedly egged on by a New York Giants fan who made a mocking remark to Bundchen on her way out of Lucas Oil Stadium, the Brazilian beauty said, “My husband cannot f - - - - - - throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time. I can’t believe they dropped the ball so many times.”

† Another source — close to a lot of the Patriots’ wives — told me, “Gisele is . . . so stuck up and treats them all like yahoos. . . . In many cases, the other wives are not all that sophisticated, but Gisele has been openly snotty to several of them — making cracks about how they dress and use too much makeup. Stuff like that.”
While Aaron Carter was present for the sad event, Nick — who has been on the road touring — supposedly was kept in the dark because some family members didn’t want him there. Leslie Carter died last week of a suspected prescription drug overdose, a diagnosis still pending the results of toxicology tests.
