Victoria's Secret is firing back at comments made by one of its former models, Kylie Bisutti, who described her brief hookup with the lingerie powerhouse as “being paid to strip down and pose provocatively to titillate men” and feeling “like a piece of meat.”
Bisutti, a self-proclaimed Christian who is promoting an upcoming book titled “I’m No Angel: From Victoria’s Secret Model to Role Model,” claims to have been an “Angel” and that she quit Victoria’s Secret to pursue her relationship with God. According to the company, in 2009, she beat 10,000 other models in the Victoria’s Secret Search competition, which bore with it a one-time walk down the runway of the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. The book outlines her decision to drop her modeling career because she didn’t want to promote anything that “sold sex.”
