Wendy Williams Slams Supermodel Christie Brinkley for Reportedly Faking DWTS Injury

Wendy Williams is not here for Christie Brinkley sustaining an injury during rehearsals for "Dancing With the Stars" show.

It appears TV personality, Wendy Williams has called out model Christie Brinkley for faking her injury during rehearsals for the new season of DWTS.

The 55-year-old made this revelation during 'Monday's episode of the "Wendy Williams Show," US Weekly reports.


ABC announced Christie's exit from the show hours ahead of its Monday premiere stating that the 65-year-old "suffered injuries which required surgery to her wrist and arm."

Her 21-year-old daughter, Sailor Brinkley-Cook, promptly replaced the model.

Footage of 'Christy's arm injury aired on "Good Morning America" during the earlier part of the day, but Wendy, who 'isn't buying any of it,  said:

"Well, that looked fake as hell. Let me tell you what I see. What I see is a 65-year-old hot stuff who looks like if you were going to fracture anything, you should have said the tailbone. I 'don't see a wrist and a shoulder being fractured, but that was real cute."

Sailor Breezes In to Save the Day! Hey My Friends! So here’s the news. I just broke my arm into a 1000 pieces requiring surgery with a metal plate and screws to hold my arm together..Im so sorry if I’ve disappointed anybody! Only something as bad as this could stop me from continuing to dance with my wonderful coach for @dancingabc ...I was having a blast!!!! Shattering my arm was quite literally a crushing disappointment, i never ever want to let anyone down...so I looked for a silver lining and i think I found one that is is solid gold! Sailor! But first I would have to convince Sailor to replace me..she was already on the plane to come sit in the audience when I reached her! (Alexa has commitments in NY including her upcoming Cabaret Show at the @cafecarlyle ) I also had to convince my student/ @imgmodels Sailor to overcome serious stage fright to replace me on the show! Sailor always meets her challenges head on and realized she did not want to be defined by her fears so with just hours to learn my routine she is turning my defeat or should i say two left feat into her own victory of courage! So Ladies and Gents I give you my beautiful Sunflower Sailor Lee. And i think you are all going to have a blast together on this season of @dancingabc ! Sorry for the typos it’s my right arm! And Sailor Thank you for taking a very disappointing turn of events into something very special! you know Showbiz is all about getting a break and I guess you can say Sailor and I both got one on this season of @dancingabc #family #familyfirst #challenge #doitforlove #fearless #brave #dare #justtry #silverlining #dauntless #dance #lemonaid #gowiththeflow #carpediem #seizetheday #formom #TeamSailaV #c’est la vie! #teambrinkley

Wendy then adds that the injury was a plot for 'Christie's daughter to get on the show, saying:

"Here's my thought, OK. Dancing With the Stars called Christie Brinkley and said, ''Do you want to do Dancing With the Stars?'' And she said, ''Yes.'' After she got off the phone, 'that's where she plotted her scheduled [injury]. She signed up knowing that she put her daughter in there. You know her daughter is beautiful."

She continued saying that the plot was a win-win situation for both mother and daughter as Christie would swing in by the show once in a while to get her camera time.


However, all these are just speculations from the TV host who appeared on season 12 of "DWTS" back in 2011.

Be that as it may, Christie 'isn't happy about 'Wendy's words according to a report by PEOPLE.

The media outlet reached out to the supermodel to get her reaction about Wendy calling her out, and she revealed that she was shocked by the TV host's accusation.

Christie's emotions got the better of her as she burst into tears during the interview.

"I'm totally shocked, because I have been there for Wendy Williams. That is so weird. I have to give her a call. 'I'm really stunned, Christie said amid tears."

The new season of "DWTS" started on Monday 16 September, and with a start like this, there is no telling what to expect.
