AceShowbiz - Christie Brinkley weighed in on Wendy Williams spreading rumors of her faking her injury that made her exit from "Dancing with the Stars" season 28. During her appearance on "The Talk", the actress admitted that she was surprised to see Wendy talking bad about her when she was always there for her during hard times.
"Wendy Williams started this rumor, which was stunning to me because I've been on Wendy's show a few times," she said in the Thursday, September 19 episode of the talk show. "For some reason, she liked me, and she would call on me to support her in tough times."
"So, I got a call one day that she was having a terrible bout of stage fright, and she was about to drop out of 'Chicago The Musical,' and I'd come over and talk to her," the 65-year-old continued. "I was like, 'You will never meet a more supportive and loving cast. You will love this experience and you will regret it if you don't do it.' "
She added, "I was there for her. Then, she goes through a divorce; I get a call again because let's face it, I'm kind of an expert in that," Brinkley, who has been divorced four times, added. "I came again ... and so I thought it was a mistake when somebody said she was doing this."
When co-host Carrie Ann Inaba, who also serves as a judge on "DWTS", asked her if she had something to say to Wendy, Christie responded, "My message to Wendy is, it's so much more fun to be kind. Try it. It can't feel good to try to hurt other people. If it feels good, something's seriously wrong."
Christie injured her arm after falling during a rehearsal for the current season of "DWTS". The mom of three previously revealed that her bones had "shattered" and that forced her to undergo 3-hour surgery which was initially supposed to take an hour. "They ended up in putting a plate [in]," she said. Her 21-year-old daughter Sailor Brinkley-Cook took over her mom's spot on the dancing competition show.
