Supermodel Christie Brinkley hoses down mom who attempted to pee near her property
Sometimes you've just got to pee — on Christie Brinkley's $30 million dollar Hamptons home. Erica Remkus is a mother of three who was swimming near Brinkley's home over the holiday weekend. Unable to find a bathroom, Remkus decided to relieve herself on the rocks near the Sports Illustrated supermodel's home. SEE ALSO: I know more about Taylor Swift's Fourth of July than my own So Brinkley responded the way a true lady would: by hosing the squatting, suffering 36-year-old down. "I know it's Independence Day but that does not mean 'free to pee' in front of my guests and me at my fireworks gathering," Brinkley wrote in an Instagram post."Maybe the trespasser should celebrate 'Depends Day' as she apparently thinks she lives in 'The Land of the Pee." Nice! Remkus later told Page Six that she was peeing on public property, and that she hadn't even started with Brinkley hosed her down. Perhaps Brinkley is from 'The Land of the Peevish?' Brinkley then called the police, but local authorities refused to cite Remkus as she was technically on public property. Not one to let "hosing an innocent victim" to get her down, Brinkley later wished everyone on Instagram a holiday "free from belligerent drunken stalkers with weak bladders and foul mouths." America: Land of the Free, not the Freely Peeing.

Dolce&Gabbana gets wild about fall beauty
The centerpiece is the Eyeshadow Quad in Enchanting Fall, which references the vibrant colors of the Sicilian autumn, from golden leaves and copper-colored trees to the luminous grey of morning frost. A Brow Liner in Chestnut and a Secret Eyes Mascara in Coffee underlines the warmth of the palette, while a wilder-eyed look can be achieved via the Glam Liner in Wild Green, or the Eyeliner in Agave, a deep olive shade. Cheeks get a lively glow with the new Blush in Strawberry, a vivid pink shade, while nails are equally bright thanks to the new Nail Lacquer in intense fuchsia Raspberry, Wild Green or woody brown Ebano.
