On July 3, The New York Post's Page Six gossip column ran an item about former Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Christie Brinkley, who apparently turned her garden hose on a woman named Erica Remkus who was about to relieve herself in front of the Brinkley's Sag Harbor Cove beachfront property. Clearly Brinkley really is not a fan of people peeing near her home, even outside, even in the sand.
According to Remkus, Brinkley yelled: "What are you doing?! You can’t pee in front of my house! You have to go away. You’re standing on my rocks. You can’t pee on my rocks. I walk there!"
To which Remkus, a 36-year-old hairdresser, responded: "These are not your rocks. This is not your beach. The beach is public property. You don’t own it." Remkus told Page Six she hadn't actually peed yet, but at that point, Brinkley sprayed her with her garden hose, and she felt she had to return the favor. Remkus said "I would not have peed if she didn’t spray me. After that, I kind of had to."
Brinkley called the cops, who showed up, but declined to cite Remkus, since they hadn't actually seen her urinate.
On Monday, Brinkley responded to the incident on Facebook:
Her post reads:
I know it's Independence Day but that does not mean "free to pee" in front of my guests and me at my fireworks gathering. Maybe the trespasser should celebrate "Depends Day" as she apparently thinks she lives in "The Land of the Pee", and I I was forced to hose down her mess after she urinated in my yard all the while throwing things at me.
My wish for everyone on this Fourth of July is.l..May you live in the Land of the Free from belligerent drunken stalkers with weak bladders and foul mouths. (that's not too much to ask right ?) Peace! I'll raise my glass of Bellissima Prosecco to that...Cheers Happy 4th to everyone!
The whole thing makes Brinkley sound a little high-maintenance, but then again, people peeing in public in front of you is not classy. Unlike Brinkley's post full of urine jokes, which is probably the funniest Fourth of July post you'll see all week. .
