Christie Brinkley News Archive
Christie Brinkley isn't just a beautiful woman, she's a kind, compassionate, caring person, who loves animals!
That's why she took home the award for Humanitarian of the Year by the Pet Philanthropy Circle.
Christie has been an animal lover forever, and has been vegetarian for most of her life, because she cares so dang much!
She won the award at the 2013 Pet Hero Awards, hosted by Pet Philanthropy Circle, who said:
Sailor Brinkley Cook, daughter of Christie Brinkley, might be the offspring of a supermodel, but she is NOT down with what a lot of supermodels are doing with their bodies! Learning from her own weight loss, she does NOT support the super skinny look!
At 15, Sailor has her mind right! In the August 2013 issue of Teen Vogue, she takes some shots at super skinny models as being “unwomanly." That's a little far, but we'd definitely say 'unheatlhy' wouldn't be far off base!!
Here's what she said, 99% of which is SPOT ON:
“It was only recently that I wanted to get into modeling. I said, ‘Mom, should I diet?’ and she was like, ‘No! You don’t need to be skinny, you just need to be happy with yourself and confident and fit.’ All of her photos really show that. She was like a goddess.
“I feel like models today have turned into sticks, and it’s so unwomanly, I am for models who are healthy and have a personality. You shouldn’t just be a piece of cardboard. When I started out, models were the proverbial clothes hangers. You were just to be quiet, put the clothes on and do as you were told.”
She's 15!! Such insight and wisdom for someone so young… and such a healthy outlook!
We'll always be proponents of people being healthy, and that includes having a healthy body image for themselves. Your own happiness is sooooo important!
Keep it up, kid!

Christie Brinkley is 59 and FABULOUS.
The former model slipped into a bathing suit for the first time in 30 years for a spread in Social Life magazine and good lord, this woman looks as good as women half - or even a third - her age!
Christie posed in the black two-piece in the Hamptons and has a body that's just as lovely as when she posed for the cover of Sports Illustrated's 1979, 1980, and 1981 issues.
Even though she's still a perfect specimen in front of the camera, it turns out
Modeling is a fickle industry.
It's also not kind to women who start to show their age - or any age above 20, for that matter.
So, what happens when you're a legendary supermodel making tons of money and traveling the world? We don't hear much from models of the past, such as Christie Brinkley, Jerry Hall, Beverly Johnson, Isabella Rossellini, and Cheryl Tiegs.
Until now… HBO will be airing a new documentary called About Face: Supermodels Then And Now, which tells the stories of some of the most recognizable women in the modeling industry and what their struggles have been with fighting ageism in the fashion world.
You know they have some incredible tales and strong opinions to share!
Check out the trailer for the new doc (above)!
And you won't BELIEVE the venom that comes out of his mouth! Damn!
Peter Cook broke Christie Brinkley's heart way back in 2008 when she discovered he was having an affair with his teenage assistant. They got divorced and have been battling it out in court over child custody ever since.
It turns out that Cook's been up to more than that though. He recently revealed that he secretly married his girlfriend Suzanne Shaw last Valentine's Day and told sources he kept it on the DL because of Brinkley.
Like a true gentleman, he decided to use the opportunity to publicly drag his ex's name through the mud and explained his decision by saying:
“Christie would drag it into her black hole of revenge and hate like she does everything else good in my life. I did not want to openly share this happy moment in our lives.”
Although he's legally moved on to a new wife, it doesn't sound like he's moved past the bitter resentment he's still harboring for his last wife.
We thought that Cook and Brinkley reached some kind of settlement in 2009, but nope! They're due in court today to continue the war over the control of their children.

Hell hath NOOOOOO fury like a baby momma scorned - especially when the daddy is LOADED!
Case in point, the raging child support battle between Linda Evangelista and her VERY RICH baby daddy, PPR’s CEO Francois-Henri Pinault.
Let us refresh you on the DRAMZ!
As we mentioned back in August, the $upermodel wants Pinault to pay up $46,000 A MONTH in child support for their 5 year-old son, Augustin James Evangelista.
And now, the two will be facing off in a Manhattan family courtroom TODAY!
The model will be pleading her case with
Vera Wang may be on the top of the fashion game, but there’s another player in the family she’d rather not talk about…her dad C.C. Wang.
For 30 years, C.C. kept a mistress and treated her like a queen! He did everything from sending her on expensive trips, buying her a Park Avenue apartment and giving her a black Amex. But the one thing he never gave her was respect.
After the death of his wife in 2004, Betty Phillips tried to marry the oil tycoon and
