Celebrity Real Estate Wrap: Brinkley Buys, Rizer Flies

1) A week before Christie Brinkley found out her husband was bumping uglies with a teenager, she bought a Sag Harbor bungalow on West Water Street for $1.39 million. Did she know something was up? Please. Under two million? She probably bought the place just to store her shoes. [Braden Keil/Gimme Shelter]
2) A couple of years ago, we were waiting with some friends for a table inside a jam-packed Tortilla Flats in the West Village. Over an hour passed, and the lusty bald host guy kept telling us "you're next! you're next!" All of a sudden, model Maggie Rizer walks in with a small group, and she is seated immediately. We shot a withering glare at lusty bald host guy, who just mouthed the word "sorry" from across the room. Obviously this instantly made us hate Maggie Rizer, once somebody told us who she was. So how does the news that she sold her two-bedroom Franklin Street loft (right) for about $2 million factor into all this? It doesn't. Also her broker has kind of a weird name. [S.

3) We thought we were pretty well-informed when it comes to pop culture, but apparently Simon Cowell has an opera group named Il Divo that has sold five million albums? Must be one of those "big in England" type things. Anyway, one Divo?David Miller?was spotted checking out a $2.25 million two-bedroom apartment in the Tribeca Summit. [Braden Keil/Gimme Shelter]
4) New York calls bullshit on the promotional spots for Six Degrees, J.J. Abrams' new ABC show, which said that New York City has a population of 3 million. Three steps later, they changed it to 8 million. [Ben Wasserstein/Intelligencer]
5) Did anyone else know that famed former Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee lives in Grey Gardens? That's kind of awesome. [NYPost]
