If you could get work done to your face, like whatever it entails, and you would look as good as Christie Brinkley at 58 would you do it? I totally would! I’m not saying that we would be as stunning as Christie Brinkley, (well some of you would, but not me) because we’re working with what we have, but if I could get someone to make me look like a fresh, slightly older version of how I looked when I was about 30 I would. (I turn 40 in a few months.) I’m not going to front like I’m above it or haven’t thought about it. It’s the bad work, the puffy lips, the too-thin noses, and the women who can barely move their faces who have me staying away from plastic surgery – for now. That’s your face and if you screw it up you’re f*ked! But Christie did it the right way, and she has much better luck at picking surgeons that she does husbands. The shrewd doctor that Radar has on speed dial is praising her plastic surgeon for his fine work. Here’s more:
Speaking exclusively to RadarOnline.com, Dr. Anthony Youn, who has not treated the star, lifted the lid on the extensive surgery he believes Brinkley has had.
“It appears that Christie is a cover girl for plastic surgery!” said Youn, a board certified plastic surgeon and member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
“She still looks almost as young as she did in the 80s.
“Her skin is flawless, possibly due to a combination of laser treatments and chemical peels. Her forehead is impossibly smooth. Impossible without maybe a little Botox? I also suspect that her upper eyelids have been lifted surgically.
“Overall she still looks like a young Uptown Girl!”
The timeless model has never addressed reports of plastic surgery but puts her sensational figure and eternal youth down to a vegetarian diet and working out.
Ok, so she’s had laser and chemical skin treatments, a little botox, and a little upper eye lift. I would also guess she also had surgery or lipo on her neck to make it look tight in that area. (Taking notes.) As you can tell, I’m firmly in the “whatever you need” camp when it comes to surgery, but I do think you should get it done as subtly as possible. All that said, I’m reminded of when I saw Christie on The Today Show bitching and fake-crying about her ex. Her face looked faker in motion than it does in photos, so there’s always a risk involved.
There was a crazy story about Christie last week. You know how she still has it out for her ex husband and has been bad mouthing him to the press? (He cheated on her with an 18 year-old girl for God’s sake, but Christie isn’t exactly playing happy co-parent with him to say the least.) Well her ex husband, Peter Cook, has a new wife, who gave a long statement to The NY Post about how Christie has allegedly been tormenting them. Peter’s new wife, Suzanne, went to Indonesia for a while (Probably after she read Eat, Pray, Love) and she blames it all on Christie, as if Christie drove her into hiding. She told The Post “There has been a lot of gossip circling around the reasons I have left the country for such an extended period. Mainly that I found evidence of infidelity, and I am filing for divorce. [The truth is] The black cloud of Christie Brinkley’s hate has hung over our lives for the five years I have been with Peter, and has taken an unhappy toll on me and my daughter’s life — on all our lives. I needed a break.” Suzanne went on to add that “To this day she has not stopped with her Peter Cook obsession.” This woman sounds like as much of a drama queen as Christie, but I don’t doubt that Christie tries to make her life hell. She seems like she’s sickly sweet on the outside but you better not cross her.
