The National Lampoon’s Vacation star is currently enjoying her life as a single woman and said, ‘At the moment I have this beautiful life and I’m loving it, and you know, if you know if somebody happens to stumble into it and it fits, great. But otherwise, I am in the moment.’

To promote her new line of alcohol, she mixed a few drinks starting with a sugar-free Prosecco mixed with pomegranate and cranberry juice. 

For the second drink she soaked apple slices and cinnamon sticks in a red wine she warmed on a burner, which was a drink recipe she picked up while skiing in Europe.

What makes her line of wine unique is they are all organic, vegan and they were specially made to contain zero sugar, which helps prevent morning-after headaches.

Brinkley’s first marriage was to artist Jean-Francois Allaux, whom she divorced in 1981.

She later married Billy Joel, and the pair welcomed a daughter named Alexa Ray, 36, during their marriage, and although they split up in 1994, they remained on friendly terms.

The model went on to tie the knot with real estate developer Richard Taubman, and their son Jack Paris, 27, was born in 1995, the year they finalized their divorce.

Her fourth and most recent marriage was to architect Peter Halsey Cook. The couple had a daughter named Sailor, 24, before they went their separate ways in 2008.
