Christie Brinkley’s Uptown Rules

“You’ve got to find a way to keep laughing, even if it’s black humor, and my friends are very good at that. Some people think of happiness as a luxury, but it’s a necessity, and you need to make space for it in your life.”

~ Christie Brinkley

Christie Brinkley, 56, talks about the rules for life that have helped her stay healthy and happy in the February issue of Prevention.

Twenty eight years after Billy Joel celebrated Brinkley and their courtship in the song “Uptown Girl” on his album “An Innocent Man,” the former supermodel says that after four marriages, she’s in no hurry to find romance.

“I really believe in the old expression that what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger,” Brinkley said. “It’s through adversity that you find the strength you never knew you had.”
