Model Gisele Bündchen and her hubby, NFL star Tom Brady were spotted this past Saturday (August 20) cycling around Boston with the couple's 20-month year-old son Benjamin and Brady's 4-year-old son, Jack with actress Bridget Moynahan.

You may know him as Joe the Policeman from the What's Down episode of That's My Mama Bridget as Big's short live wife on Sex And The City. Gosh I hated her character on SATC...

Speaking of Gisele, she's the last of a dying breed...supermodel, that is!

I remember years ago when I was interning at Glamour magazine in Milan, my supervisor Gianni (loved him!) explained to me that Gisele was the last of the supermodels. He basically said that the fashion industry could no longer afford to pay outrageous amounts of money for campaigns and endorsements to several high ranked models simultaneously. 

Think Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Elle Mcpherson, Linda Evangelista, Claudia Schiffer, Stephanie Seymour and Tatjana Patitz, i.e., the models for whom the phrase "supermodels" was coined after.

I remember when Linda Evangelista quoted one of the most famous lines in fashion history to Vogue magazine in 1990..."[w]e don't wake up for less than $10,000 a day!"  

Sidebar: And y'all act surprise this is the same chick who wants what would be considered the largest monthly child support in Manhattan history if granted --$46,000 (let me find out Linda been talking to Kelis) from her baby's daddy François-Henri Pinault. The two share a 4-year-old son named Augustin.

Pinault is the CEO of PPR, one of the largest luxury brand companies in the world. To give you an idea, the company owns some of your favorite bands like GucciBottega VenetaYves Saint LaurentBalenciaga, Alexander McQueen (owns 50% interest) and Stella McCartney.

Pinault is also the husband of actress Salma Hayek. The couple have a 3-year-old daughter named Valentina (In case you were wondering, she was born just 11 months after Augustin!).

Talk about but I digress/six degrees of separation!
