Former Victoria's Secret Model Kylie Bisutti
Winner of the 2009 Victoria's Secret Model Search competition (and Cristina's niece), Kylie Bisutti shares why she gave up her dream of being a high-fashion model. As she details in her new book, "I'm No Angel," Kylie's big break came with a hefty moral price tag, leaving Kylie with a difficult choice of abandoning her dream in order to live a life more in line with her Christian beliefs. Today, Kylie also opens up on the negative side of modeling, including the unhealthy body images often portrayed in the fashion industry.
