Yeah, let’s get more people drunk, shall we? How is this a great idea, People? The only question here is how much you got paid to publish an article about yet another crap product from this fake woman.

She slams a woman she falsely accuses of being drink of peeing on “her rocks” which happen to be public beach and then plugs her wine. If Brinkley is showing her true colors, I no longer have any sympathy for her constant complaining about being wronged by various people. She is obviously the spoiled, rich aggressor who is treating a neighbor like dirt.
