What Can We Learn from Christie Brinkley’s Divorce Trial?

1. First and foremost: Can that lady rock a crisp white shirt or what? Loved the shots of her striding into the Long Island courthouse wearing a white shirt tucked into a belted pencil skirt. It said “class,” it said, “I know, I can’t believe he cheated on me either.” Now, most days I can’t tuck in a shirt without looking like Ed Grimley, but yesterday at my daughter’s preschool, one well-dressed mom had a crisp white shirt with darts that provided shape, but did not need to be tucked in. I am obsessed and now must find it and buy it.

2. Paying off an 18-year-old to keep quiet is probably a waste of money.

3. All men love porn, but when they masturbate to strangers online, perhaps that’s a bridge too far.

4. Poor kids. I would fault Miss C for asking the media to be allowed into the trial, except it seems the strategy worked. Peter Beard didn’t want any more dirty laundry aired, so he settled.

5. If you have supermodel wealth, get a pre-nup and don’t marry in a community-property state. She did both. NY is not a community-property state. California is. If they had married in California, Beard could have bedded the teenager, a cat, and the family cow and still have been entitled to half of whatever she made/bought while they were married. Can’t believe she got rid of him for only 2.1 mil.

6. She may be blonde, but she’s not dumb. She owns 18 properties in the Hamptons! That’s a lot of tomatoes.

7. Looks ain’t everything. They looked so good together, but it goes back to one of my life philosophies: Don’t marry the Ken doll, marry a dork.

8. I can’t get “Uptown Girl” out of my head.

  1. Thanks. Now have visions of Billy Joel on motorcycle zooming though my already cluttered mind! Remember how Christie’s knees came up to her chin when she hopped on his bike? ALL the dorks went wild.

  2. Found you via Kelsey at My Sweet Life, and just have to chime in that in addition to the crisp white shirt, how amazingly does she work a simple little cardigan?

    She’s undoubtedly years older than I, but somehow, in the past two decades, my aging process has surpassed hers…
    do unfortunate partners keep you young looking? 😉

    She appears to have had miniaml work…if any…

  3. Oh My God, I can’t get Uptown Girl out of my head today either! I thought it was just “the voices” again. Thank God it’s not just me.

  4. I would just love to see her run back to the arms of stubby little Billy Joel. He hasn’t been worth a crap without her.

    Oh, Christy. We wish you well. You think she’s destined to be Lenny Kravitz lastest side-thing fling?

    I think even I shtooped him last week.

  5. Lynn, did you mind that he was short? I love a good shtooped joke. If not Lenny, than John Mayer.
    so many funny commets! love it.
    I think Christy looks good, cause #1 she was a supermodel. I don’t think I was, no, no, I never was. And she didn’t party it up Janice Dickerson style. She’s led a pretty clean life. Except for all those pesky husbands. And she isn’t super skinny but FIRM, so clothes wear well on her. And she has great posture.

  6. I loved the “Uptown Girl” video because as a dark haired, vertically challenged Boston girl, it gave me a thrill to see that the Cali beauty…you know those women have it all..was rhythmically challenged! Do you remember her little shuffle dance move?
    Thanks Daphne for the walk down memory lane!

  7. That’s ok Daphn. Everyone forgets my e. Just another present from mom.

    You’re right….who doesn’t LOVE a shtoooped joke!
