Christie Brinkley Says ‘Smarmy’ Donald Trump Tried to Pick Her Up While He Was Married

Model and actor Christie Brinkley claims “smarmy” Donald Trump tried to woo her while he was married to Ivana.

Brinkley revealed in an interview with Porter magazine that back in the ’80s, Mr Trump asked her to join him on his private jet — but she turned him down because she suspected he was “chasing skirts”.

She said: “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. 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 continued: “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. He was out chasing skirts.”

She added, “I’m done being discreet. 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!’”

Despite the fact this is the President of the United States we’re talking about here, none of this is particularly surprising.

Salma Hayek and Brooke Shields have claimed that Trump also tried to woo them despite the fact that they already had boyfriends. More infamously, in that Access Hollywood tape, Trump himself admitted to the fact that he tried to “move on” Nancy O’Dell in Palm Beach despite the fact that she was married at the time.

Trump would eventually find success wooing at least one woman in Aspen—it’s where his affair with Marla Maples started. That episode ended his marriage to Ivana; and, for a brief time in the ’90s, Maples was the second Mrs. Trump.
