• Fox News (2/21/2012) Model leaves lingerie modeling over Christian beliefs: Kylie Bisutti on 'Fox & Friends'.
// Bisutti claims that even though she beat out 10,000 other aspiring Victoria's Secret models, she soon realized — especially after starting to read the Bible more — that lingerie modeling was not conducive to "honoring God" or her new husband.
But it wasn't until she started posing for men's magazines like Maxim and FHM that Bisutti truly started to recoil from her newfound occupation. "It really broke my heart" to pose in lingerie that was not for women but instead intended for other men to see, she said.
She asserts that she is "so much happier now" that she has "found" who she truly is.
For Bisutti, happiness is "not in that world, but in what I am doing now."
"My faith is more important and I want to honor God," she said. "I don't feel like I am honoring him when I am half-naked."
// Bisutti told Glenn that moving forward, she wants to work on being a "positive role model" for young girls and to impress upon others who perhaps have the same aspirations she once did, that there is "no happiness in getting that kind of attention" — in other words, "getting half-naked."
"I thought all that attention, parties, runways would make me happy," Bisutti reflected. "It was all empty and selfish, and really when it comes down to it… the only thing that makes you happy fulfillment and love for others."
She told Glenn that even if she lost everything as a result of her choice, as long as her actions positively impact one girl, "it will have been worth it."

Kylie Bisutti (born 31 March 1990 in Simi Valley, California) is an American model who won the 2009 "Victoria's Secret Model Search" competition, broadcast online through CBS and concluded during the December 1st airing of that year's Fashion Show. Placing first through fan voting over fellow contestant Jamie Lee Darley in the final round earned Bisutti, nineteen years old and a newlywed at the time of filming, the prize of walking in the annual show alongside Victoria's Secret Angels like Heidi Klum and Miranda Kerr.
Although Bisutti continues her career in the entertainment business, she did not work with Victoria's Secret after the show. She later said lingerie modeling conflicted with her Christian values: "My body should only be for my husband and it's just a sacred thing."
428-438 – Calls – Have you, will you, bring this up with your young daughters? When you were a teenager, would you have listened? Ladies, some of you made choices that put you into an uncomfortable situation – maybe you're there now – what advice could you have been given that would have made a difference along the way? What could have prevented that first step in the wrong direction? Or that incremental step that put you into ever more awkward situations? Especially as a dancer, actress, beautician, or athlete, etc. (E.g., you're asked to wear an outfit, or do a scene, that is too revealing). Share your advice, maybe it will make a difference in a young woman's life today. When does the desire to be "fit" or "healthy" become an unhealthy obsession? (I need to do a show on this.)
