Christie Brinkley reveals Donald Trump tried to pick her up while married to Ivana

Longtime top model Christie Brinkley is making an eye-popping claim about President Donald Trump.

Page Six reports that Brinkley, in an interview with Porter magazine, spilled the beans about an alleged encounter with “The Donald” that involved the real estate mogul calling the model to offer her a ride on his private plane — while he was married to Ivana Trump!

“My phone rings and this guy goes, ‘Hey, Christie, it’s The Donald.’ I say, ‘Hi, Billy,’ because I was dating Billy [Joel] at the time,” the 64-year-old claims.

“But the voice goes, ‘No, no. It’s The Donald! … I hear you’re leaving for Aspen tomorrow. I am too. I’d like to give you a ride on my private jet.’”

Brinkley then said she rejected the offer because Trump was a married man.

“So I reply, ‘Thank you, but I have already arranged my flights.’ I knew he was married, and there he was asking me to go on his plane. He was kind of flirty about it,” she said, adding that she believed he was just “out chasing skirts.”

But the chase didn’t end there, she claimed.

“I’m done being discreet,” Brinkley continued. “I’ve had dinner with him. I’ve always found him smarmy, as in, ‘Watch out, part the waves, the rich people are coming, everything is gold, solid 24-carat gold, the best, the greatest, nobody else has more gold on anything in their house than me. Did you bring a brush? Let’s gold-leaf it!’”

Brinkley’s claims come just a few weeks after the president’s rumored 2006 affair with porn actress Stormy Daniels made the headlines.

According to CNNFox News reporter Diana Falzone wrote a story about the alleged relationship between Daniels and Trump in October 2016, a month before voters went to the polls for the election.

People with knowledge of the story told CNN that Falzone had seen communications about a settlement between Trump and Daniels and had a statement from Daniels’ manager that the adult-film star did engage in a sexual relationship with Trump.

However, the network chose not to publish the story, with one person telling CNN that Falzone “had the story and Fox killed it.”

CNN’s report came shortly after The Wall Street Journal published a report that Trump’s personal lawyer, who was at the time a lawyer for the Trump Organization, paid Daniels $130,000 as part of a non-disclosure agreement one month before the 2016 election.

Daniels had reportedly revealed to sources interviewed by The Wall Street Journal that she had a consensual relationship with Trump in 2006. Trump married his current wife, Melania Trump, in 2005.

“She met this nice guy and we always talked about him in code really,” actor Wendell Pierce, who played Markle’s onscreen dad, admitted on Harry Connick Jr.’s talk show Tuesday. 

“You know, ‘How you doing?” ‘Oh, I’m going to London, coming from London, whatever.’”

Pierce also discussed a tender moment he shared with his Markle as his daughter on her final day of shooting.

“I had a really wonderful moment as we were coming to an end of her time on the show,” the 54-year-old actor recalled. 

“It was just she I in the room and I said, ‘I know your life is going to change, but always know, no matter where you are, I will always be your loving fake father.’”

When Markle’s engagement was announced in November of 2017, Pierce tweeted his approval. “Congratulations to my TV daughter Meghan Markle and Prince Harry on the news of their wedding engagement,” he wrote. “Harry you have her TV father’s blessing. Robert Zane approves.”

It was recently confirmed that Markle’s co-star and TV fiance Patrick J. Adams would be following her out the door at the end of Season 7. The duo will be reportedly saying goodbye to their long running legal drama in a two-hour season finale that is set to air Wednesday, April 25. The show’s creator Aaron Korsh praised the stars for their work on the series, Entertainment Weekly reported.

“I would like to thank Patrick and Meghan for their extraordinary contributions over the last seven years,” Korsh said in a statement. “Not only have they been outstanding in their roles as Mike and Rachel, they are also superb human beings who will always be beloved members of the Suits family, and we wish them well in their days to come.”

News of Markle’s exit came in early November, just before Kensington Palace announced her engagement to Prince Harry on Nov. 27. The real-life lovers will tie the knot in St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle on May 19. As well wishes poured in for the pair, Markle’s on-screen lover cracked a joke about her upgraded relationship status.

Mary J. Blige gets honest about financial problems in new interview

Mary J. Blige might be the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul and an Academy Award-nominated actress and songwriter, but she’s struggling financially.

In an interview with Vulture, published Sunday, the singer opened up about her financial struggles due to her ongoing divorce from husband and former manager Martin “Kendu” Isaacs.

“I’m just being straight-up honest,” she said. “I never wanted to do all this stuff, but after what I’ve been through and the mess that I’m in … You have to pay those taxes. It’s good to see what you have and what you don’t have — and why are we paying this person $5,000 a week?” she said.

Blige had reportedly been ordered to pay her estranged husband $30,000 in temporary spousal support, and owes the IRS $6.5 million for eight years of back taxes, according to reports.

Last year, Blige spoke at Essence Fest 2016 about how she got through it following her split from Isaacs.

“The journey that got us here is that every woman can relate to, a woman out there fighting for her marriage,” she said, according to People. “When I first started writing (my album, ‘Strength of a Woman’), I was fighting for my marriage. There were a lot of layers to me peeled back for this marriage. I really thought I did (find) the love of my life.”

Blige filed for divorce from her husband of 12 years in July 2016. In the time since she filed, she has kept details mostly private.

The singer said she turned to prayer to help her get through the pain.

“Being Mary J. Blige the celebrity is secondary and I’m a human being first and I suffer just like everyone else,” Blige said. “I believe that I wasn’t given this career or this job as a singer or this gift from God to sit down and say, ‘I’m going to suffer from the world in silence and die.’ And it’s therapeutic for me as well. So, you know, that’s why. It’s not just for me.”

Blige has been nominated for best supporting actress at the 90th Academy Awards for her role in the Netflix film “Mudbound.” Her song “Mighty River” from the film’s soundtrack has been nominated in the Best Original Song category.

In a recent visit to Kentucky, the WWE star offered strength and comfort to one of his biggest fans, who is battling brain cancer, WYMT reported.

T.J. Brewer was inspired to start a ministry and share his strength with community members. The response has been positive, Chris Brewer said.

“We've had about 500 visitors, everybody in this community,” he said.

Robert Wagner's story on Natalie Wood's death doesn’t add up, investigators say

Investigators who last week told CBS News that actor Robert Wagner is a “person of interest” in the death of actress Natalie Wood, have now confirmed his story just doesn’t “add up.”

Wood drowned in November 1981 after going overboard while on her family’s yacht near Catalina Island, California. Her then-husband, Wagner, actor Christopher Walken and Capt. Dennis Davern also were on board. She was 43.

“As we’ve investigated the case over the last six years, I think he’s more of a person of interest now,” Lt. John Corina told CBS last week of Wagner. “I mean, we know now that he was the last person to be with Natalie before she disappeared.”

After a “48 Hours” report on Saturday detailed some of the new clues in the case, the Los Angeles Sheriffs’ Department followed up Monday morning with a press conference explaining the investigation’s current status “We’re closer to understanding what happened,” said LAPD Homicide Detective John Corina, although no charges are being filed as yet.

“We’d love to hear his side of his version of events,” said Corina. “He’s always been a person of interest because he was the last one with her.”

Corina added that Wagner is not legally required to speak with officials.

He said the information shared by Wagner regarding the events of that evening “doesn’t really add up.”

In 2012, the Los Angeles County coroner’s office changed the cause of death from “accidental drowning” to “drowning and other undetermined factors.” Investigators later cited the presence of bruises on Wood’s body as the reason for the change.

“There were bruises on Natalie Wood’s body,” Corina said in Monday’s conference. “They were probably caused by another person. I can’t say who caused the injuries.” An autopsy showed that Wood had a high alcohol level as well as prescription drugs in her system.

Simon, 76, said he will kick off his “Homeward Bound – The Farewell Tour” on May 16 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The tour will wind through the U.S. and Europe before coming to an end July 15 in London. 

“I’ve often wondered what it would feel like to reach the point where I’d consider bringing my performing career to a natural end,” Simon wrote in a statement posted Monday on Twitter. “Now I know: it feels a little unsettling, a touch exhilarating and something of a relief.”

He said the decision came after the death of his friend and lead guitarist Vincent N’guini, who died in December.

“His loss is not the only reason I’ve decided to stop touring, but it is a contributing factor,” Simon said. “Mostly, though, I feel the travel and time away from my wife and family takes a toll that detracts from the joy of playing.”

Simon said that despite his retirement from touring, he’ll likely continue to perform occasionally “in a (hopefully) acoustically pristine hall … to donate those earnings to various philanthropic organizations, particularly those whose objective is to save the planet, ecologically.”

The following tour dates were announced Monday:

Simon has sold more than 100 million records across the globe. He is a member of the Songwriters and the Rock ‘n’ Roll halls of fame.
