Boldface Names in News of the Weird!


Police in Southampton, New York, confirmed a July altercation in which model Christie Brinkley water-hosed a woman she had spotted urinating on her beachfront property. Erica Remkus, 36, said her need was urgent after watching a July 4 fireworks show, but Brinkley shouted, "How dare you!" and, "I walk on these rocks (where Remkus had relieved herself)."




Also in July, actor Brooke Shields made the news when she -- as a curator of an art show in Southampton, New York -- managed to rescue a piece that custodians had inadvertently tossed into the garbage. (The cleanup crew had made an understandable mistake, as the statue was a raccoon standing next to a trashcan, ready to rummage.) [New York Daily News, 7- 4-2016] [New York Post, 7-11-2016]
