Slick Woods on Victoria's Secret Mixed Feelings on Pivot ... Sex Sells, But This is Cool I Guess 🤷🏽‍♂️

if it ain't broke ...

Victoria's Secret is doing both a good thing and kind of a dumb thing by replacing their "Angels" with strong female ambassadors ... so says noted Fenty model Slick Woods.

We got Slick -- who's famous for her preggo catwalk in 2018, and giving birth shortly thereafter -- out and about Friday night near Hyde in WeHo ... this during an UOMA Beauty event by Sharon Chuter. Good setting to talk fashion and sex appeal, no doubt.

Of course, our cam guy had to bring up VS's decision to rebrand themselves with new spokeswomen -- including Megan Rapinoe and Priyanka Chopra Jonas, among others -- while also doing away with their winged models, seemingly for good. Slick's take is ... interesting.

Check out her answer for yourself -- at first, she seems to be against the move ... wisely noting that, despite all the progress we've made as a society, sex sells at the end of the day.

BTW, that's not necessarily a bad thing either ... according to Slick, anyway. She says if you use that primal truth for good causes -- like what Victoria's Secret appears to want going forward -- then it's simply a means to an end. She's got a great example about getting people's attention.

We're not trying to put words in SW's mouth, but she *seems* to be saying what VS is doing with this new crop of women might not be the most effective way to get asses in seats for their goals big picture, in a manner of speaking. Then comes the curveball.

When we reiterate what exactly is going on with the new campaign, Slick appears to switch up on us ... saying yeah, the "Angels" thing is low-key demeaning. Sit on a fence much?!?

Giancarlo Stanton Bench Presses Adriana Lima ... Insane Workout Video!!!


Talk about the ultimate flex ... Giancarlo Stanton showed off ALL of his muscles in front of smokin' hot model Adriana Lima -- BY BENCH PRESSING HER!!!

The video of the Yankees superstar in the gym is insane ... he laid down on his back, grabbed Lima by the legs and the armpit -- and benched her AT LEAST 4 times!!!

It's unclear why a normal barbell and plates weren't enough for the outfielder ... but Lima sure seemed to dig it -- the supermodel was smiling the whole time!!

Of course, the feat ain't exactly tough for Stanton ... he's known as the strongest guy in the league -- so benchin' a former Victoria's Secret model was clearly NBD.

But, just to prove the guy could still lift some serious weights ... he showed off his skills with a hammer and a tire -- and yeah, dude's got the muscles!!


Seems clear all the injuries that bothered Stanton during the 2019 season are now behind him ... which means, heads up, Red Sox.

Shanina Shaik & DJ Ruckus Officially Divorced in 3 ... 2 ... 1 ...

Shanina Shaik now REALLY has a reason for celebrating in 2020 ... she can finally count down the days until she's officially divorced.

According to new legal docs, obtained by TMZ, the Victoria's Secret model will officially be single and dunzo with DJ Ruckus on January 23 after the judge signed off on their settlement.

TMZ broke the story ... the model filed for divorce last July. They had been together from April 28, 2018, until June 25, 2019, the date of separation she listed. She cited irreconcilable differences in her divorce docs, and requested spousal support. They don't have kids together, so no child support issues.

Now, it's unclear if Shanina got what she requested -- we know they had a prenup, but the terms of their settlement are being kept under wraps.

No word if Shanina's planning to celebrate with a giant slice of pie. Her official single day, January 23, is also National Pie Day.

Then again, she IS a model -- cancel the pie!!!

Stella Maxwell Snags 5-Year Restraining Order Against Alleged Stalker Who Threatened Rape

Stella Maxwell can rest easy -- at least for the next 5 years -- because the man who allegedly threatened to rape her and set her house on fire has just been ordered to stay clear of her until 2 Presidential elections from now.

The supermodel filed docs back in Oct. against Ruben Velazquez, whom she claimed threatened her on Instagram, and even showed up in person several times to her house.

As we reported, Velazquez allegedly sent horrifying messages like, "I'm thinking of burning your house" and referred to himself as her husband, saying, "we are going to f*** Stella." The messages allegedly continued, with lines such as "I will find you" and "I [will] leave you in a wheelchair."

He even allegedly sent her a pic of her own house, which he seemed to have taken himself -- standing just a few feet away.

Velazquez has also been charged with criminal threats and harassment.

At least 5 years should allow the VS model to get some beauty sleep.

Stella Maxwell Gets Restraining Order ... Against Alleged Violent Stalker

Supermodel Stella Maxwell just got some much-needed protection ... from a man who allegedly threatened to rape her, shoot her and set her house on fire.

The Victoria's Secret model filed legal docs seeking a restraining order against a man named Ruben Velazquez, whom she claims has been showing up at her house uninvited and sending her crazy threats via Instagram for the past couple months.

Maxwell says he made several scary visits to her residence and sent her dozens of IG messages ... including a photo taken just a few feet from her house.

According to the legal docs, Velazquez also sent alarming messages like "I'm thinking of burning your house" ... "buy a shotgun with long range and leave you lame" and various messages referring to being her husband and saying, "we are going to f*** Stella."

Maxwell says the last message she got from him said, "I'm going to be a serial killer."

And, there's more ... "I will find you" and "You are going to have to kill me." As well as, "I [will] leave you in a wheelchair."

Stella's obtained a temporary restraining order requiring Velazquez to say 100 yards away from her at all times. He's also been charged with criminal threats and harassment.

Brody Jenner Moving On from Kaitlynn Already Cozying Up With Josie Canseco

Miley Cyrus might've snatched up Brody Jenner's ex, Kaitlynn Carter, but he isn't batting an eyelash over it -- the guy's already found a new distraction ... one Josie Canseco.

Sources familiar with the new pair tell TMZ that Brody and Josie have been seeing each other as of late ... and that they seem like a good match for now.

We're told the Victoria's Secret model first met Brody during a 'Hills' press tour in New York, where they were introduced at a hotel party through Frankie Delgado and Brandon Lee -- both of whom are also on the hit reality show that was recently revived.

Our 'Hills' sources say Brody and Josie hit it off, and have been hanging out A LOT over the past few weeks, kissing each other and showing tons of PDA around friends. They seem to be taking things somewhat slow, we're told, but it's clear they're romantically involved.

Perfect timing, really ... Kaitlynn seems to be moving on with Miley ... who's apparently BEEN over hubby Liam Hemsworth for a while now.

Here's another thing -- our sources tell us even though Brody referenced Miley and Kaitlynn (and Liam too, cringey as it was) ... it's not a reflection on what's occupying his mind. We're told Brody's over Kaitlynn after their split and couldn't care less who she dates.

As for Liam -- who's been the most tight-lipped about all the drama out of everyone involved -- he piped up Monday in Australia, telling a pap he didn't wanna talk about it.

Karlie Kloss Wrong About Feminism, Victoria's Secret ... Says Model Cynthia Kirchner


Karlie Kloss saying she left Victoria's Secret because the brand didn't match her feminist values is a load of crap ... so says model Cynthia Kirchner, who is calling out Karlie for getting it twisted. 

Cynthia -- a Victoria's Secret model alum herself, tells TMZ ... Karlie's wrong for sticking her nose up at Victoria's Secret since, ya know, it's what gave Karlie a platform. Check out the vid ... Cynthia also says Karlie's got feminism all wrong ... because female empowerment means women can choose how and where to show off their bodies. And, that includes Victoria's Secret.

ICYMI ... Karlie told British Vogue she left VS in 2015 because she "didn't feel it was an image that was truly reflective of who I am and the kind of message I want to send to young women around the world about what it means to be beautiful."

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

Karlie, who BTW is married to Jared Kushner's baby brother, Joshua, added, "I think that was a pivotal moment in me stepping into my power as a feminist, being able to make my own choices and my own narrative, whether through the companies I choose to work with, or through the image I put out to the world."

Cynthia's not buying what Karlie's selling. The model-turned comedian/actress says even though Karlie has bigger aspirations, she did herself a disservice by burning a strong bridge.

VS Model Shanina Shaik Files to Divorce DJ Ruckus

1:50 PM PT -- We've obtained the divorce docs which outline the pair was together from April 28, 2018 until June 25, 2019. Shanina wants spousal support ... and the couple has a prenup. The docs cite irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split. 

Shanina Shaik is done with her marriage to DJ Ruckus ... 'cause she wants a divorce just a year after getting hitched. 

The Victoria's Secret model just filed the paperwork Tuesday in L.A. County Court, asking a judge for a dissolution of marriage. She and Ruckus tied the knot last year, and have no kids together. 

It's unclear for now if she's asking for spousal support, but one thing that is certain ... she wants out. They officially separated last month, telling the media, "They move forward with much mutual respect and love for each other, and ask to please respect their privacy during this time." 

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

Shanina posted about her journey earlier Wednesday, captioning her photo, "Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations." Shanina and Ruckus got engaged in late 2015 while vacationing on Lenny Kravitz's private island.

BTW, don't confuse Shanina as a relative of Irina Shayk -- who also reportedly went through a major split with baby daddy Bradley Cooper earlier this year. 

Both attractive, both models, but completely different genes.

Model Izabel Goulart Thong'd Out Makeout Sesh ... w/ Soccer Star Fiance

Here's some math for you ...

Lingerie model + thong bikini + ripped soccer star + makeout session + Greece = ONE HELLUVA TUESDAY!

Yes, smokin' hot Brazilian model Izabel Goulart and her Team Germany soccer star fiance, Kevin Trapp, are heating things up in Mykonos ... smothering each other by the pool.

The two have been dating for years -- but got engaged in 2018 ... and clearly, the sparks are still flying!

34-year-old Goulart is a former Victoria's Secret Angel who's also made the pages of Sports Illustrated, FHM, GQ, Glamour ... you get the point.

28-year-old Trapp is a pretty solid goalkeeper who's under contract with Paris Saint-Germain ... though he's currently on loan to Eintracht Frankfurt in Germany's famous Bundesliga league.

But, he's clearly got some downtime ... so why not take your insanely hot fiancee on a beach vacation to Greece, right?

There was kissing ... and back rubs ... and kissing ... and sunbathing ... and more kissing.

Just check out the pics already. Happy Tuesday.

Taylor Hill Hot Skater Girl ... Good Golly, Miss Ollie!!!

Taylor Hill doesn't need to be on a catwalk to completely shred the modeling world ... a skate park does just fine too.

The Victoria's Secret Angel took advantage of the SoCal winter weather to rock multiple sexy outfits for a photo shoot in Venice Beach Thursday ... and she didn't forget to bring her board.

We don't see Taylor bust out any kickflips, fakies or railslides during her shoot, but after posing with several VS products in a few different looks ... it's clear she knows how to grind.

Halsey Slams Victoria's Secret Exec ... No Place for Transphobia!!!

Halsey's making it clear, just because she appeared in the annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show ... she's still pissed off about one of its execs disregard for the LGBTQ community.

The singer, who performed in the VS Show, blasted the show as it was airing Sunday night. She called out Ed Razek, the chief marketing officer for VS's parent company.

Last month in Vogue, he was asked about having transgender models in the show and said ... "No, I don't think we should. Well, why not? Because the show is a fantasy. It's a 42-minute entertainment special. That's what it is."

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

Halsey's IG post slammed VS for "a lack of inclusivity" ... and added she stands in solidarity with the trans community.

For his part, Razek apologized and walked back his comment, as soon as the backlash began. He said, "To be clear, we absolutely would cast a transgender model for the show."

Razek added, "We've had transgender models come to castings. And like many others, they didn't make it. But it was never about gender. I admire and respect their journey to embrace who they really are."

Halsey seems to want action, not words.

Custom-made VS mankini for Shawn, anyone??

Victoria's Secret Model Stop Bugging Me!!!

A Victoria's Secret model clearly didn't heed the warning, "Don't let the bedbugs bite," and now she says it's derailed her career and her life.

Sabrina Jales St. Pierre is suing the Palm Desert Embassy Suites hotel, claiming she was viciously attacked by the creepy creatures back in 2016.

The bites covered much of her body, and even worse didn't heal very quickly. She claims the bites left her not only physically scarred but emotionally as well ... she says she suffered embarrassment and psychological trauma. She says she continues to have nightmares.

According to the lawsuit, she blames the hotel for not properly fumigating.

Victoria's Secret Angel Taylor Hill Carried Off Coachella Grounds ... Totally Out of It


Victoria's Secret Angel Taylor Hill might have had a little too much fun for Day 2 of Coachella, 'cause she had to be carried out by a group of friends by the end of it.

We got the model Saturday heading into the Empire Polo Club for round two of the festivities, where she was trying to be incognito -- but appeared perked up and fully engaged with our camera guy ... making her love for Beyonce loud and clear.

Then we saw her again as she was leaving with the same group of friends -- only this time she was being held up as her head was hanging and she stumbled to the car.

It sounds like an ambulance was being considered briefly, but her pals ended up getting her into the car safely where she appeared to be conscious and okay.

Victoria's Secret Model Show Me Pouty Mugshot After Weed Bust

Victoria's Secret model Maggie Laine is no stranger to posing ... which may be why she takes an excellent mugshot.

Maggie was busted for weed back on St. Patrick's Day in Muscogee County, Georgia ... where the sticky icky isn't legal. Maggie, who turned 21 the week before, had less than an ounce, but that's no excuse in the Peach State.

The good news ... she was released in short order.

Maggie's repped by IMG Models, one of the biggest modeling agencies around. The company has all sorts of high end models on its roster, including Gigi Hadid, Ashley Graham and Gisele. Maggie walked the VS Fashion Show catwalk last fall.

Here's the good news ... Jeremy Meeks is a felon and that didn't hurt his modeling career.
