Readers chuckled when Victoria's Secret put model Kylie Bisutti in her place this week.
On Wednesday, Bisutti alleged that she "felt like a piece of meat" working for the company, and added that she had to "play down my marriage … because I was supposed to be flirting with everyone all the time."
The lingerie giant fired back at the winner of its first-ever national model search, telling PEOPLE, "She was never a Victoria's Secret 'Angel' as defined by the terms of our Angel model contract."
