But remember, they "care about the planet"

Via Jammie Wearing Fool, comes this sprawling example of eco-hypocrisy, from the "green" U.N. environmental ambassador, Gisele Bundchen, and her hubby, Patriots QB Tom Brady:
What kind of U.N. environmental ambassador builds a 20,000 square-foot home with a six-car garage, an elevator and a lagoon? Why, that would be the Hub’s favorite Pats fan, Gisele Bundchen!

And a paparazzo’s sneak pics of Bundchen and hubby Tom Brady [stats]’s gargantuan new Brentwood, Calif., chateau has green activists seeing red.

“How big a space do two people need?” asked Philip Dowds, a Massachusetts Sierra Club official and professional architect. “A 20,000 square-foot house - the resources that it takes to put it together and the land that it needs, this just can’t happen anymore.”

According to photos taken by Los Angeles shooter Alec Byrne, who said he got a peek at the blueprints, the new West Coast lair of the Patriots [team stats]’ star quarterback and his glam wife will feature amenities including:

a wine bar and gallery

a six-car garage

a service kitchen and butler room

a pool house and lagoon-shaped swimming pool and spa

a recreation room with 19-foot ceiling.

And the manse will have an elevator - even though that seems to contradict environmental advice Bundchen offers on her own Web site to “take the stairs.”

“In addition to exercising, you save the electric power of the elevators,” she says on, which is currently festooned with references to Earth Day.
I guess Ms. Bundchen is just trying to keep up with her fellow "eco-warriors", like Al "Multi-Mansion" Gore. Do as I say, not as I do -- the mantra of eco-fakes everywhere.

Besides, how much closet space can Ms. Bunchen really need, anyway? Her work attire doesn't appear to be all that bulky. :)
