But here’s some good news for you black-hearted V-day haters: The last time we did a best couples gallery, back in December, one of those couples announced their divorce a few days later. Oh, no! What have we done?!?
Eli Manning and Tom Brady competed in a nail-biting battle of wits, endurance and strength last night, and experts and amateurs alike are no doubt reviewing every minute to see whether it was down to their individual choices or the support of those around them that lead to the ultimate outcome: Tom Brady is officially this week’s Hotness! Oh, and Eli Manning won the Super Bowl.
Maybe Gisele’s prayers were misheard and somehow got directed to this competition, rather than the one on the field? Anyway, we like it when everyone comes out a winner. While tomorrow, we’ll shower the Giants in ticker tape for their victory, today it’s time to help Tom celebrate his Hotness title with a little gallery viewing.
Super Bowl Sunday is just around the corner, which is the time where we celebrate fantastic feats of athleticism by gorging ourselves on Doritos and dip (seven layers!). The New England Patriots’ QBTom Brady is going helmet-to-helmet with the New York Giants’ Eli Manning, both on the field and in our FABLife Weekly Hotness Poll. These guys play for honor, glory, and endorsement deals. But most importantly, they play to make their ladies proud! Both teams boast an impressive assortment of wives and girlfriends (or WAGs), from former Victoria’s Secret Angel Gisele Bundchenand VH1′s very own Evelyn Lozada on the Pats side, to the sizzling Elaina Watley reppin’ Team Giants. No matter who scores the most touchdowns this Sunday, all the dudes are winners with these women by their sides. Check out the mega-gallery of Super Babes past and present to see what we mean!
We like to think that our weekly Hotness poll isn’t all about looks — personality plays a big part in our celebrity lust. But this week’s choice will run even deeper for some of you as we pit this week’s Super Bowl quarterbacks, the Patriots’ Tom Brady and the Giants’ Eli Manning, against each other in a tough matchup. Do you go for classically handsome Tom, with his deep-set baby blues, dimpled chin and supermodel wife? Or does sweet boy-next-door Eli, with his goofy smile and his ability to pull through in a clutch?* Do you vote for New York or New England (or AGAINST New York or New England), regardless of the QBs’ cuteness? Whatever you do, vote early, vote often and don’t get any guacamole on your mouse during halftime. Poll closes on Sunday night at 11 p.m.
No, the fact that Justin Bieber’s, Jennifer Aniston’s and Emma Watson’s haircuts were the most searched-for haircuts of 2011 is not Earth-shattering news by any means. What we do find entertaining, however, is the fact that Google seems to have taken a lot of time measuring something like this. Click around the site’s 2011 Zeitgeist feature and you’ll find all sorts of not-very-shocking info (Bieber is the most-searched person, Rebecca Black is the fastest rising, Kim Kardashian and William and Kate had the most popular weddings, etc.) laid out in very nifty-looking bar graphs. This is the perfect toy to play with as we wait out our office-party hangover. If that seems like too much math for your foggy brain, just click through our gallery of the year’s top 10 celebrity haircuts, according to the Zeitgeist.
Seeing as Tom Brady is the patron saint of our home state of Massachusetts, we’ll probably get blacklisted and put on a state watch-list for posting this video. In the clip above, Brady rocks out at Carnival in Rio de Janeiro looking like he got his moves from a “How To Dance At An Adult-Contemporary Music Concert” page on About.com. We can’t decide if we’re charmed by his dorkiness or if this was the final straw and we can no longer find him attractive (we can’t even comment on his ponytail, it’s just…something else). Check out some less embarrassing photos of Brady, Gisele Bundchen and Jude Law partying in Brazil earlier this week.
Tom Brady may have lucked into marrying one of the hottest women in the world when he nabbed Gisele Bündchen for his bride, but if reports are true, his Brazilian supermodel wife is obsessed with his looks, to the point where she is now controlling his hair. When we first saw Brady’s long, Bieber-like locks, he was just recovering from a car accident on his way to Patriots practice. He and his hair were unharmed, but we were shocked by how pop-star-ish Brady looked. Turns out, it’s all Gisele’s doing. And it’s not just because she likes her men shaggy, her motives are far more sinister. It’s because she’s ashamed of Brady’s…bald spot.
Back in September during a radio interview, when Brady was asked why he doesn’t cut his hair, he replied “You’ll have to speak to my wife about that.” Now, The National Enquirer reports that Brady’s car was seen at the Leonard Hair Transplant Association in Rhode Island and a source said “He spent over an hour consulting with Dr. Leonard before he slipped out the back door and drove off.” So if we’re to read between the lines (of the Victoria’s Secret Model’s Playbook), Gisele is forcing Tom to grow his thinning hair out, and also forcing him to get plugs. You know, because if you’re going to be married to a super-hot model, it’s not enough that you’re just a professional football player, you have to stay super-hot yourself.
A minivan reportedly ran a red light and collided with Brady’s Audi as he was driving through an intersection in Boston. The passenger of the minivan had to be removed from the automobile using the jaws of life, but injuries are not life threatening. Brady was unharmed and made it to Patriots practice later that morning.
Now that we know everyone’s okay, we have one quick observation to make. After taking a closer look at photos from the wreck, we became concerned because, you guys, Tom Brady – husband to Gisele Bundchen, foxy athlete extraordinaire – has Bieber hair. This is upsetting. At what age does a man become immune to extra-long bangs? We thought 33 would be well past the cutoff, but we’re clearly wrong. Unless…oh we get it now. He just wants to give Troy Polamalu‘s hair a run for its money.
When we saw the above photo we were confused – how is it that Gisele Bundchen could look so impeccable and so very tiny at eight months pregnant? Yes, she is eight months pregnant in that photo taken less than four weeks ago. Now we’re happy to report that she and her equally-hot hubby Tom Brady have welcomed their first child together. The baby was a boy, a detail that Brady found out in advance and had to keep from Gisele. No name has been revealed just yet, but we’re sure Gisele will be giving the kid flying lessons in no time.

It sucks being a target of the paparazzi, but usually if tension escalates, celebrities just throw a punch or try to grab the camera; there’s not normally gunplay involved. But if you’re Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen and you have an overzealous bodyguard, that’s exactly what happens.
The couple tried to celebrate their nuptials in April at Bunchen’s home in Costa Rica, far from the prying eyes of pretty much everyone, but a couple of paps did some sneaking around on Gisele’s neighbor’s property to snap some photos of the event. When the hot couple’s bodyguards caught wind of them, they demanded the cameras and memory cards and later decided it would be a good idea to fire a few rounds at the photographers. Yikes.
Now the paparazzi is suing Tom and Gisele for over $1 million in damages, claiming that they were given permission by Gisele’s neighbor to take the photos. Not the most solid defense, but also not something worth being shot at for, we think, and certainly not the best way to cap off a wedding day. [Photo: GettyImages]
