Who is Christie Brinkley's mother?

I found this to be maybe her father and mother. But E ONLINE celebrities also said her birth name was Christie Brinkley while Wikipedia said Christie Brinkley was born Christie Lee Hudson! So does E Online know her mother's name any more than it knows the name she was born with or maybe it knows her name and who her parents are and Wikipedia got the wrong birth name or some other confusing thing! Anyway, EOnline says: Father: Don Brinkleytelevision writer, who worked on shows such as "The Virginian" and "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." Mother: Marge Brinkley
