In spite of all the controversy surrounding the LeBron James/Gisele cover back in April of this year, the issue did not prove to be a winner at the newsstand for Vogue Magazine. According to Portfolio and ABC Rapid Report, the issue sold 350K copies at the newsstand compared to the 452K copy average for last year in this quarter. The LeBron/Gisele cover was the worst selling April issue since 2001 (which featured Renee Zellweger on the cover.) That said, it is still not the worst selling issue of 2008, so far that honor belongs to the May issue which featured milk toast actress Gwenyth Paltrow.
In the words of Nelson Muntz, "HA-ha!"
