Holidays. relatives. ugh. still, a few big names decided to throw caution to the wind and acquire some new in-laws in time for Christmas. Christie Brinkley, 41, may have been Billy Joel's "Uptown Girl," but the supermodel mommy ascended yet further to marry her new husband, developer Ricky Taubman, 46. The pair got hitched at 11,890 feet in a ceremony atop the ski mountain in Telluride, Colo. Christie's daughter Alexa Ray and Taubman's son Wyatt were among about 150 ski-shod guests, and, at the on-slope reception, the newlyweds announced they're expecting a brand-new son. "Melrose Place" vixen Heather Locklear, 33, also tied the knot before Christmas. Twice. She wed Bon Jovi's Richie Sambora, 35, in a civil ceremony at his place in New Jersey, then the duo jetted off to Paris for a more romantic rite at the American Cathedral. Nobody wore skis.
