Christie Brinkley on the Possibility of a Relationship and What Makes Her Happy
As the Supermodel and entrepreneur turns 70, she tells PEOPLE that she hasn’t closed the door on a relationship.
Christie Brinkley isn’t closing any doors as she looks toward her 70th birthday, and that includes the possibility of meeting someone.
While speaking to PEOPLE ahead of the milestone, the Supermodel and entrepreneur shared that she “remains open” to a relationship, but there’s a challenge: “There just doesn’t seem to be anybody out there,” she says.
The lack of options doesn’t get her down, however. “At the same time,” she says, “I am pretty comfortable with my life the way it is, so, que será, será!”
She adds, “I always said my whole life that I think that you have to be happy alone so that you get with a man for the right reasons and you’re not clinging to him because you need to, you know?”
Christie Brinkley’s Lifestyle and Goals
Brinkley’s got plenty to focus on right now, from running her own certified organic sparkling and zero-sugar still wine brand, Bellissima, to collaborating with Xcel Brands Inc. for the spring launch of Lifestyle and apparel brand TWRHLL and her partnership with RYZE adaptogenic mushrooms, for which she’s a brand ambassador.
But her busy work schedule isn’t stopping her from filling up her bucket list. Hovering at the top: travel.
“I still have to see India. I’ve never been to Tahiti or Thailand. I want to go to Bali also. I’ve got to do an eat, pray, love,” Brinkley says.
Brinkley’s also hoping to take Italian lessons. “I love Italy, and I want to be able to converse better,” she says.
And the star wants to give back in a major way. “If TWRHLL becomes very successful, I’d love to be able to do things that very successful people do with their money in terms of giving back. At 70, you kind of say, ‘What can I do to help others?’”
Christie Brinkley on Aging and Internet Trolls
Christie Brinkley isn’t fazed by wrinkles ahead of 70th birthday despite the trolls: I’m ‘just letting it be’
Christie Brinkley is Aging naturally and proud of it.
The Sports Illustrated swimsuit model said although she’s tried Botox twice, she’s happier letting herself age gracefully and “just letting it be,” she told People in an interview published Wednesday.
“Sometimes when people get older, and they overdo it, they can look waxy and — I don’t know what the word is — preserved or something. I want a little life to show on my face, you know?”
She did say, however, that she still receives bi-annual resurfacing Fraxel treatments to help with sun damage she’s sustained over the years.
Christie Brinkley’s Openness to Love and Lack of Dating Options
Christie Brinkley, 69, ‘open’ to finding love but laments lack of options: ‘Doesn’t seem to be anybody out there’
Supermodel Christie Brinkley admitted that while she “remains open” to a relationship, she is unsure about the dating pool.
Supermodel Christie Brinkley has not closed the door on love, but the ageless beauty is not sure there is a suitable person open for her.
Brinkley recently admitted that while she “remains open” to a relationship, she is unsure about the dating pool.
“There just doesn’t seem to be anybody out there,” she lamented to People magazine.
Brinkley has been married four times, famously to singer Billy Joel and most recently to architect Peter Cook.
“At the same time,” she continued, “I am pretty comfortable with my life the way it is, so, que será, será!”
“I always said my whole life that I think that you have to be happy alone so that you get with a man for the right reasons and you’re not clinging to him because you need to, you know?”
As recently as 2022, Brinkley was adamant she would not utilize one frequented avenue for finding love.
“Nope, never,” she told Social Life magazine of using a dating app.
In 2020, years after her breakup with singer John Mellencamp, Brinkley insisted, “My love life is that I love life,” she told People. “The love of my life is my life.”
She and Mellencamp dated for a year, beginning in 2015, bonding over their families.
“When it comes to relationships, there is something nice about just being the same age,” Brinkley told People of Mellencamp when they were dating. “You never really know what’s going to happen,” she said of them potentially tying the knot. “John and I are two people that have very full lives. We’re just trying to enjoy each other when we can see each other and try not to put too much [pressure] on it.”
Just days ahead of her 70th birthday, Brinkley is relishing life as it is.
“I still have a few days left of my Sexy Sixties before I dance into my Sensational Seventies on February 2nd, but I already know it’s going to be a spectacular year! I know because that’s my plan and I’m old enough to know that it’s up to me to make sure of it,” she wrote to Instagram.
“I always used to say to my kids go out and make it a great day and now I’m saying to myself that I’m gonna make it a great year ! I’ve had a lot of close calls and I feel lucky and grateful to be here, I just can’t believe that I got here so FAST! It’s speeds by so my advice to all you young-ins out there… Love, laugh,and LIVE IT UP!”
