Christie Brinkley is an American model with a net worth of $80 million. Christie Brinkley has earned her net worth from her photos in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, as longest running model for Cover Girl. She was born in Monroe, Michigan, and was once the wife of musician Billy Joel. She has invested her net worth in real estate. The majority of Christie's net worth surprisingly does not come from her modeling career. Brinkley has made a number of extremely wise real estate investments over the years. She has primarily invested in property in the ultra exclusive New York beach town of The Hamptons. Her portfolio of real estate is easily worth $60 million or more.
Brinkley has also maintained a steady career of infomercials and other endorsements. She is consistently voted as one of the hottest women alive and seems to never age.
