Poolside photos of 59-year-old Christie Brinkley are a Web sensation Share This: UPI 6/17/2013 10:35:57 AM NEW YORK, June 17 (UPI) -- Pictures of 59-year-old U.S. supermodel Christie Brinkley posing poolside for the new magazine Social Life have become an Internet sensation. Brinkley was recently photographed wearing a sexy ensemble at her home in the Hamptons and the images, prompting her to become a trending topic on Yahoo! Sunday. The ex-wife of rock 'n' roll icon Billy Joel said she doesn't starve herself to maintain her figure, however. "Believe me, I love a good chocolate chip ice cream," she once told Shape magazine. "I'm not going to go for some lousy version of it. If I'm going to have it I'm going to have a really good one."
