Such sad news – model Christie Brinkley was injured and is no longer able to compete on Dancing with the Stars this season.
Her 21-year-old daughter, Sailor Brinkley-Cook, has stepped in to compete in her place this season.
“While rehearsing for the premiere of ‘Dancing with the Stars,’ Christie Brinkley suffered injuries which required surgery to her wrist and arm. She is unable to continue her planned participation on the show. Keeping it all in the family, her daughter Sailor Brinkley-Cook, a Sports Illustrated model, has chosen to quickly step in with hours to learn the entire routine and will compete in her mother’s place for the remainder of the season. We wish Christie a full and speedy recovery and look forward to seeing her in the audience, whenever possible, proudly supporting Sailor,” ABC told Just Jared Jr in a statement.
