'Parks and Recreation' first look: Christie Brinkley guest stars as... Jerry's wife?!?

Yahoo TV

Everybody on NBC's "Parks and Recreation" makes fun of hapless parks department employee Jerry Gergich. But who's laughing now?

On this week's holiday-themed episode of "Parks," Jim O'Heir, who plays Jerry, gets an early Christmas gift when legendary supermodel Christie Brinkley (still stunning at 58) guest stars as Jerry's heretofore-unseen wife, Gayle. We've already met Jerry's beautiful daughter Millicent, so it makes sense that Jerry somehow managed to marry someone way out of his league. But Christie Brinkley? Yeah, we know she married Billy Joel, but this is ridiculous.

Understandably, the rest of the Pawnee parks department is speechless when they lay eyes on Jerry's wife for the first time at this week's holiday party. In fact, when you include the two other gorgeous Gergich daughters, who join in on a festive holiday singalong in the clip below, you've got yourself one good-looking family Christmas card. Well, except for Jerry, obviously.
