The supermodel shared an update with fans on Monday.
Christie Brinkley is on the mend!
The supermodel took to her Instagram Story on Monday to give fans an update on her broken wrist and arm, which she suffered less than two weeks ago while practicing for her Dancing With the Stars debut. Following the injury, Christie pulled out of the competition, with her daughter, Sailor Brinkley-Cook, stepping in for her with just three days to practice her routine.
As Christie shared on Monday, her cast has been removed as her recovery continues. "They are making me a removable cast so I can start physical therapy!" Christie excitedly posted alongside a video of her bare arm.
"Stitches Out! And the scar is an L maybe I'll add the O V E in a tattoo!" she wrote on another video.
Christie's DWTS injury was revealed to fans just hours before the show's season premiere last week, and while many offered their support to the model, Wendy Williams wasn't buying it. The TV host spoke out, accusing Christie of faking the injury to get her daughter on DWTS.
"I didn't just break the [bones]... because of the angle I hit, they shattered," Christie shared on The Talk last week, holding up her cast and showing the bruises around her elbow to the camera. "My surgery, that was supposed to take an hour and a half, ended up taking three hours, and they ended up putting in a plate."
"My message to Wendy is, it's so much more fun to be kind," she added. "Try it. It can't feel good to try to hurt other people. If it feels good, something's seriously wrong."
