Sailor Brinkley-Cook Stands by Her Mother And Applauds Her Handling Of The Situation

“Let me tell you what I see. I don’t see a wrist and a shoulder being fractured. But that was real cute,” Williams said. “Here’s my thought: Dancing With the Stars called Christie Brinkley… and she said yes. After she got off the phone, that’s when she plotted her schedule. … In my opinion, I think what Christie did was she signed up for Dancing With the Stars knowing that she’d put her daughter Sailor in there.”

Sailor Brinkley-Cook also defended the way her mother handled the situation. “I was super proud of her especially cause she really stood her ground,” she added. “She spoke the truth and Wendy has really supported her through a lot of crazy stuff and for her to come out and say something negative about this situation really was shocking.
