A man in Aventura, Florida, was accused of sexually abusing his dog, but a judge dropped the charges. The dog’s name? Oh, CHRISTIE BRINKLEY. Armand Pacher was charged with abusing his Great Dane after a vet found signs of sexual abuse–and found human semen mixed in the dog’s urine. Pacher further ignited suspicions when he made a comment to a vet technician regarding the dog’s health. Pacher allegedly said: “She doesn’t seem to enjoy it as much when we have sex. Maybe it’s because I have not been as energetic lately, and that’s why she is not enjoying it as much.” He later insisted that it was just a joke. The case was dropped after prosecutors failed to find any physical evidence. The retired insurance investigator was reportedly relieved. “Although the prosecution has finally decided to say ‘just kidding, never mind,’ my life has been fully destroyed.” [Palm Beach Post News] Keep reading »
As we saw on “The Hills” this week, there is no way in hell that Heidi Montag‘s mom would’ve joined her on the operating table. But apparently, lots of mother/daughter pairs are getting plastic surgery together. Prime example, Christie Brinkley and daughter Alexa Ray Joel, the new Prell girl. Alexa checked in to have a nose job earlier this month and Christie checked in for (people think) a facelift the next day. A spokesperson for the family said, “Alexa had breathing difficulties due to a deviated septum and decided to correct the appearance of her nose at the same time. As far as Christie is concerned, she was at Lenox Hill to support her daughter, and throughout her career people have speculated that she’s done this or that, which she always chooses to take as a compliment.” Riiiiight. And her face just happens to look much younger now. [NY Post]
But these two aren’t nearly the only ones doing it. Keep reading »
Christie Brinkley’s all-American style isn’t something we’d ever copy, but that hasn’t stopped us from coveting this ring from her line with Ross-Simons. The turquoise petals are so bright and cheerful, and the amethysts remind us of lilacs. We’d wear this ring with a simple dress or jeans and a white T-shirt so it would be the eye-catcher of the outfit. Now all we have to do is stick to our lunch menu of peanut butter sandwiches so we can afford it. [$125, Ross-Simons] Keep reading »
Do you swear to tell the truth, avoid neon colors, and not wear sunglasses as headbands, so help you God? In a courthouse, there is a legal oath as well as a fashion oath.

Whether you’re in the jury box, testifying, or, heaven forbid, the defendant, there are certain rules everyone should follow in front of the (fashion) judge. Keep reading »
