Its Just Not Fair

Source

Quote:
Forbes.com recently released a list of the 15 richest supermodels on the planet. After reviewing the facts and figures, we’ve come to one conclusion: these women earn too goddamn much.

5. Alessandra Ambrosio: $6 million

4. Adriana Lima: $6 million

3. Heidi Klum: $8 million

2. Kate Moss: $9 million

1. Gisele Bundchen: $33 million



Even ignoring the insane jump in cash between #2 and #1, just think about this: for the natural-born gift of looking attractive, a small degree of business savvy (more on that later), and the coordination necessary to look good walking in high heels, these women make more money in a year than most anyone reading this site will even see for the rest of their natural lives.
...

heres my favorite part...

Quote:
Fact: Gisele Bundchen literally quit Victoria’s Secret because – wait for it – the money wasn’t good enough.

Five million dollars a year to wear underwear.

Five.

Million.

Dollars.

A year.

And it wasn’t enough.

God bless the girl for knowing that she could make more, but my God: just because she was lucky enough to be born with pleasant features and a near-anorexic lack of body fat, a skinny Brasilian girl somehow found herself in a position where she could look at a five million dollar paycheck, shrug, and say, “Nah, not enough.”

Damn those catalog girls make some dough!

I'm partial to Miss Lima myself. Peanut hides the catalogs from me when she's on the cover.

I can't figure out if you're upset because they're beautiful or because you're not.

In any case, Rossi makes 20 mil for doing what he loves, and he's not even 30. The fucker could at least get a haircut!

That' because she doesn't want the pages sticking together.

i guess that could be the principle of it, or that they make money for being them and walking a straight line. you should at least make these women get wasted before a show so that walking a straight line is something to be rewarded, but shit....

with 33 mil you can buy 2750 R1's....

One of my clients has a net worth of 860 million. His CEO salary is about 12 mil a year and he gets a lot of other perks (boat, a couple of cars, private jet, expense account...). As extravegant as that may seem, he worked up from nothing - literally. Fought his way through school - he didn't do so well in his undergraduate days. He is definitely a corporate executive "of the people."

At least he worked his whole life to get where he is now. The salary doesn't seem so bad compared to folks who, with little effort and a little of Mother Nature's help, make even more. However, you gotta love our free market society. Back in the day, these women had nothing, not even citizenship. Hell, if you got it, flaunt it, and get paid for it. I tried that once. All I got was a night in jail

We're going to start enforcing the unnecessary apostrophe rule NOW? haha.

It does suck, but somebody is paying them all this money. They must think it's worth it.

There is a big difference between busing your ass all your life and becoming successful and just letting someone taking pictures of you because your parents gave you some good genes. I dated a model once and never will do it again... they are all self centered materialistic bitches... and as far as I'm concerned, until I am convinced otherwise, they are only good for two things.

Just to piss in the CEO myth.. they don't all 'earn' their money. There's a good-ole-boy network made up of small groups of men who are all friends in a money-pissing match and they straddle various Boards of Directors and executive positions in various companies and they swap seats around periodically and get each other into their positions all around corporate america. For them, it's all about lining their wallet and it's pretty sick to witness. There are various factions within this network that are rivals and try to sink the others as a 'oh, BURN!' but they still walk away with millions even if they run a company into the ground.

The only casualties are the stock holders and the employees... never themselves.
