More than a decade after finding out she needed a hip replacement, Christie Brinkley finally went through with the surgery, and updated fans on how she’s doing one month later.
Christie Brinkley, 66, is thriving after having a hip replacement in November. The model took to Instagram to share new pics of her in a black, long-sleeved swimsuit on Jan. 4. Due to the high-cut style of the swimsuit, the bandage from her surgery was visible, so Christie decided to open up to fans about the procedure and why she had it.
“New Year, New Hip!” Christie wrote. “I injured by hip in a back country skiing helicopter crash on a mountaintop in Telluride many years ago. The pain in my hip got a little bit worse each year. Twelve years ago I was told it needed to be replaced, but the surgery was daunting! And I had things to do!” Of course, 2020 provided a new lull in most people’s schedules due to the coronavirus pandemic, so Christie decided it was finally time to go through with the surgery.
“I decided to finally take time for myself and do something about the pain that had progressively influenced my decisions,” she continued. “I wanted to be ready to be able to say yes to opportunity. I had my surgery at Thanksgiving and I was dancing in my kitchen by New Year’s Eve and today I put on my long fins and explored the coral reefs propelled by new hip!”
Along with swimsuit photos from the boat, Christie also shared underwater pics of herself gracefully swimming while snorkeling. She concluded her post with an inspiring message to any fans who might also be afraid of doing something that could potentially change their lives. “I’m writing this to say, if you’ve been putting something off that could improve your well-being, but hesitate out of some sort of fear, I suggest learning as much as you can about the procedure and the results and expectations,” Christie said. “I can’t tell you how happy I am to have done this. Now I can focus on getting back in shape and rebuilding my strength.”
Christie’s post was flooded with congratulatory comments, along with some fans sharing their own surgery stories. It’s safe to say that Christie is even more of an inspiration after this latest revelation!

Hot mama alert! Brittany Matthews got gussied up for a night on the town in West Hollywood, and her post-baby style is sizzling. Just two months after giving birth to daughter Sterling Skye Mahomes, Brittany rocked a mini skirt and fitted blazer that showed off her already slim figure. The bright orange skirt suit, paired with a white tank top and ankle boots, gave off major mod vibes.
The new mom, 25, definitely deserved her April 15 dinner at Nobu. Accompanied by future brother-in-law Jackson Mahomes, she looked like she was having a blast. Brittany and her fiancé, NFL star Patrick Mahomes, 25, welcomed their baby girl into the world on February 21. They announced the joyous news on Instagram with a photo showing a tiny hand clutching Brittany’s finger in the hospital. The new mama wore a sparkly “Sterling” necklace.
The happy couple have shared plenty of adorable photos and videos of their first child on Instagram over the past two months. In early March, Brittany shared a cool video showing her baby bump progression during her trips to the gym. At the end, she’s cradling little Sterling on her flattened stomach. So cute!
Patrick was over the moon about becoming a first-time father. Just two weeks before Brittany gave birth, he expressed his joy in an interview with 610 Sports Radio Kansas City. “I mean really, anytime, I could be having a baby girl, and I’m super excited about that. It’s gonna be something special, and I’m excited for the journey of trying to find ways to better myself and become the best dad that I can be,” he said.
Lori Loughlin Delivers Food To Those In Need 3 Months After Prison Release — Pic
Lori Loughlin spent some time on April 14 delivering food with Project Angel Foods. See the latest photos of the former actress, who was released from prison at the end of December 2020.
Lori Loughlin kept a low-profile while volunteering in Los Angeles on April 14. The former Full House actress, 56, was spotted wearing a pair of blue jeans, a cream-colored sweater with 3/4 length sleeves, a face mask and baseball cap while out volunteering. Lori has been working with Project Angel Foods and delivering items to those in need, just over three months since her prison release.
This isn’t the first time that Lori has been spotted out and about, as she completes her 100 hours of community service that was designated along with her guilty plea. In fact, Lori was photographed driving her SUV in Calabasas, CA, on Thursday, April 8, just after her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, was released from prison and transitioned to home confinement on April 2. It’s been quite a whirlwind for the couple, who pled guilty in May 2020 to one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud by paying college admissions counselor Rick Singer over $500,000 in order to secure their daughters, Olivia Jade, 21, and Isabella Rose, 22, spots at the University of Southern California.
Lori served two months of her prison sentence, while Mossimo served five months. Along with serving time in prison, both Lori and Mossimo paid fines for their illegal actions. Lori paid $150,000 while Mossimo paid $250,000 in November 2020. Lori has been partnering with Project Angel Foods for some time, and was actually spotted delivering foods and services in early March.
Along with Lori and Mossimo settling back into their new normal, the couple’s daughters have also been repairing their own reputations. Olivia has been vocal about her part in the college admissions scandal, and for that Lori is proud. “Lori is so proud of Olivia for continuing to speak out,” a source shared EXCLUSIVELY with HollywoodLife in late March 2021.
“[Lori] wants to be able to speak out, but really wants to control the narrative and have Mossimo home [first],” the insider continued. “[But] she is closer with her daughters than ever right now.” Mossimo will begin completing his 250 hours of community service after April 17, a few short weeks after settling back at home.
