“We like it that way,” she said. “We don’t want any thugs at the club.”

You'll never guess who said this, and about what. Read the article and this statement shows up......

Is The Country Club too exclusive even for Tom Brady?

Just how exclusive is The Country Club in Brookline? We’re about to find out.

Word around the club’s meticulously manicured grounds is that Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and his supermodel spouse, Gisele Bundchen, whose mansion is just an errant tee shot away, would like to join. But it’s not clear if the club famous for understatement and insularity will accept the glamorous power couple as members.

Why? Because the 133-year-old institution prizes privacy and discretion above all else. And Brady and Bundchen, trailed as they often are by paparazzi, and occasionally controversy, attract the sort of attention abhorred by the multimillionaires who belong to the primrose playground on Clyde Street in Chestnut Hill.

1. I'm not surprised -- John Lennon practically had to disown the Beatles

in order to be admitted in the Dakota apartment building. And there was a record executive who was barred from buying a house in an exclusive area because his label handled the then wildly popular Mendudo -- fear of being swarmed by Hispanic groupies, I guess. Besides, the country club set isn't big on "new" money.

3. TRANSLATION: The pro athlete and the supermodel might invite their "thug" associates to the club

for golf, tea and scones.

When a friend told me she'd had to pass up an apartment because its parking lot banned motorcycles and pickup trucks, I replied, "Maybe that's their way of banning PEOPLE who own motorcycles and pickup trucks!"
