At 65 years old, Christie Brinkley joins Season 28 of “Dancing with the Stars.” The supermodel, who performed as Roxie Hart in the Broadway musical “Chicago” in 2011, 2012 and reprised her role in April, says she doesn’t really have “cool moves.” In fact, her dancing skills are limited to the “Elaine” dance. Yes, the Elaine from the TV series “Seinfeld!”
Despite not having dance experience, Brinkley is beyond excited to learn: “I never make time for dance lessons but I always wanted to do it,” she told Yahoo Entertainment. “Now I have a job where they’re going to teach me? It’s perfect.” She’s also looking forward to getting out of her comfort zone and moving her body. “I’m going to go there grease my joints, learn a few moves and if I make it past the first show — victory!”
Brinkley will hit the ballroom for her first dance on September 16, when the new season of “Dancing with the Stars” premieres.
