So this is… gross. It was also gross before but now it’s somehow grosser because Peter Cooke’s fiancee was already young, but now we’re learning that she’s even younger. Even Sean Penn picked a girl who’s a bit more cooked by life. But 60-year-old Peter Cook seems to truly have found The One with his psychology student fiancé Alba Jancou. Previously she was reported as 21, because he said so. Welp… the cat’s out of the bag: she’s actually only 20. His daughter, Sailor Brinkley-Cook, is 21. So he’s dating someone born after his own child. So… there’s that.
Page Six says that it really did not take long for Wendy Williams to get into it with another celebrity. I mean it’s still September! Shows are still premiering and already Wendy has been called out by Sharon Osbourne. Sharon was not pleased with Wendy’s opines of Christie Brinkley‘s Dancing With The Stars injury. Wendy believes that the 65-year-old supermodel with better skin than me faked her DWTS arm injury and the plan was always for her to be replaced by her daughter, Sailor Brinkley-Cook. Well, Sharon thinks that’s bullshit! How dare Wendy Williams make such a claim against someone after all the drama she’s been through? People were there for her! How could Wendy just start talking all that talk again? And it’s like, Sharon, do you even know Wendy? Well, Sharon does and thinks Wendy is “dark inside.”
Wendy Williams has had one HELL of a year involving a breakup with her husband because of a side-chick baby, a relapse and a stay in a sober house, and the tabloids following all of it. During all the shenanigans, there were rumors that she was going to lose her talk show. But well, nothing attracts viewers like messy headlines, and so the people at Fox and Debmar-Mercury are sticking by Wendy and are bringing her back for at least two more years of messiness! And Wendy decided to celebrate this renewal by starting a new feud with Christie Brinkley, because why not?
I have terrible news for the horny middle-aged dads who were hoping to watch 80s smoke show Christie Brinkley cha-cha-cha in nude illusion dancewear tonight on the 28th season premiere of Dancing with the Stars. No one will be telling Christie to break a leg before she shimmies out onto the dance floor, because she broke her arm during rehearsals, and had to drop out. Luckily, her daughter Sailor Brinkley-Cook has generously stepped in to make sure the show goes on.
We’re less than a month away from the 28th season of Dancing with the Stars, the show you watch when you remember it’s fall and The Bachelorette isn’t on anymore. Actually, speaking of The Bachelorette, fans of Hannah Brown will be pleased to know she’ll be bringing her patent-pending brand of primetime network drama back to television, because she scored a spot in the cast. And can you believe that she’s actually one of the lesser stars involved? Where did ABC suddenly get the budget? Someone flag the IRS, ABC is clearly cheating their taxes.
And in “Untold Stories of Past Pop Cultural Icons” news, Elle Macpherson, 54, told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live that vehicular terror Billy Joel, 69, off-loaded her in favor of the ageless Christie Brinkley, 64, back in the day. It could have been the equally ageless Elle whom the public was aiming their puzzled looks at back in the 80s. She could have been ½ of the unusual and progressive celebrity pairing that inspired questions like “Her? With him? Really?”
