If a picture is worth a thousand words, this one is getting there 140 characters at a time.
In case you missed it, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick was captured in the Reuters photo above, where he appears to be checking out model Chrissy Teigen’s assets at the White House Correspondents’ annual dinner in Washington, D.C. last Saturday.
After the photo was fired around the internets, all the parties involved in the photo-op chimed in.
First, Teigen’s husband, recording artist John Legend, took note of the Belichick ogling and posted a highly-entertaining snap back on Twitter with two words that are sure to leave a mark on the Patriots coach: “Spy gate.”

Then Teigen herself made fun of the photo on her Twitter account with a self-deprecating message to her followers: “None of the guys were looking at my ass. They were just wondering why I don’t have one, which is a reasonable concern.”

Enter Bill’s better half, a.k.a. Linda Holliday, who was standing next to Belichick during the alleged offense, defended her man on Instagram, posting the now famous photo with the caption: “I mean, honestly, who didn’t check her out in this photo?!? I think I even looked!”
Billboard magazine caught up with Teigen recently to get her take on The Look. Tiegen was asked if she could feel Belichick staring at her.
“I did not,” the supermodel said to Billboard laughing. “Actually, there were many more people in that group who should be called out. Poor guy.”
The “more people” Teigen references may include Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and former Wisconsin center Frank Kaminsky, who also looked like they were enjoying the view.
Teigen later added: “If anything, they were probably like, ‘Why the f— is this bitch standing in front of us?’ That’s [probably] what they were thinking.”
Belichick himself has not commented on the matter, and that should be a surprise to no one.
