Christie Brinkley was one of the first supermodels
of the 1980s but she's also another statistic: one of
a long list of models who's been married to a rock star.
Born and raised in California, Christie is the daughter
of a well-known TV producer. In her early modeling days,
she lived in France, where she met French illustrator
Jean-Francois Allaux, who she married and later divorced.
When Christie met Billy Joel in the early '80s, he was
playing piano at the bar of a Caribbean hotel. Christie
said at the time that she didn't know who Billy Joel
was. They were married for 10 years and had a daughter
together, Alexa Ray. Christie has had a minor career
as an actress and she co-starred with Billy in his "Uptown
Girl" video. She also had a short-lived talk-show
on CNN called "Living In The '90s" and most
recently has been seen hawking fitness products.
In a period of four years, Christie married twice and
had children by both husbands. In 1994, she married
businessman Ricky Taubman and had a son with him named
Jack. Christie and Ricky divorced amid rumors of conflicts
over money. In 1996, she married her current husband,
architect Peter Cook and had a daughter with him named
Sailor. These days, Christie is semi-retired from modeling
and keeps busy raising her three kids at her homes in
California and New York.
