Oh boy! Christie Brinkley opened up in a new interview about how Donald Trump once tried to woo her while he was married to Ivana Trump. Speaking with Porter magazine, the 64-year-old supermodel recounted the now-president’s alleged advances — and revealed why she turned him down.
“My phone rings and this guy goes, ‘Hey, Christie, it’s The Donald.’ I say, ‘Hi, Billy,’ because I was dating Billy [Joel] at the time,” Christie told the publication, according to The Sunday Times. “But the voice goes, ‘No, no. It’s The Donald!’ So I say, ‘What’s up?’ And he says, ‘I hear you’re leaving for Aspen tomorrow. I am too. I’d like to give you a ride on my private jet.’”
But Christie had no interest. “So I reply, ‘Thank you, but I have already arranged my flights.’ ‘So cancel them!’ was his response, and I say, ‘No, thank you. I’m going with friends.’ I knew he was married, and there he was asking me to go on his plane,” she continued. “He was kind of flirty about it. He was out chasing skirts.”
During her chat with Porter, the blonde beauty admitted that she’s had more interaction with Donald, now 71, over the years. “I’ve had dinner with him,” she said. “I’ve always found him smarmy, as in, ‘Watch out, part the waves, the rich people are coming, everything is gold, solid 24-carat gold, the best, the greatest, nobody else has more gold on anything in their house than me. Did you bring a brush? Let’s gold-leaf it!’”
Donald’s marriage to Ivana, now 68, ended in the early ‘90s after his affair with Marla Maples went public. He and Marla — who share 24-year-old daughter Tiffany Trump — eventually got married, but divorced in 1999.
Of course, Christie’s comments come weeks after In Touch exclusively revealed that Donald had an affair with porn star Stormy Daniels in 2006, one year after he tied the knot with now-First Lady Melania Trump. Stormy, 38, detailed her relationship with the ex-Celebrity Apprentice host in an on-the-record interview in 2011. Donald has denied the affair through his attorney Michael Cohen.
