Christie Brinkley's Vacation Interrupted By Bird Attack Christie Brinkley tried to save a bird, but instead she ended up with a black eye. "We interrupt this holiday to take a little unplanned excursion to Miami for cat scans and stitches following an accident trying to save a bird," she wrote on Instagram on Monday. She'd been in Turks and Caicos when the bird-saving mission failed. "My grateful heartfelt thanks go out to our wonderful Parrot Cay Family who got me to the boat and plane, and my friends in Miami who found my A Team at University of Miami Hospital led by Dr Askari and his professional caring and adorable team," she wrote. Brinkley is fine now... though she did feel the need to explain "bae." What an old.
