Christie Brinkley fires back at ex Peter Cook

Christie Brinkley’s ex-husband Peter Cook decided to defend himself by giving a “pity me” interview to Barbara Walters. Unfortunately it didn’t go so well for Cook, as he just came off as a whiney, pathetic guy who can’t handle people seeing him for who he really is. He did all this despite having signed a confidentiality agreement as part of his divorce proceedings.

Brinkley fired back, but in a dignified and appropriate manner. Once again it’s clear who has all the class and who has none in this situation.

Supermodel Christie Brinkley faced a highly publicized divorce from her husband Peter Cook three months ago — now she’s re-arming to fight Cook’s claims about their nasty split.

“Extra” has obtained a statement from Brinkley’s attorney, Robert Stephan Cohen, on behalf of the supermodel. It reads: “It is a measure of Peter Cook’s character that he has breached the confidentiality agreement that is in the divorce settlement and has sought to present this distorted one sided view of his marriage. Mr. Cook had his days in court, testified on his own behalf and ultimately agreed with the view of the children’s court appointed attorney and psychiatrist that the children should live principally with their mother and that she should be the sole custodial parent.”

Cook, who was blasted in court for an online sex addiction and an affair with his teenage assistant, insists he’s been unfairly labeled. “I’m not the pervert that I’ve been painted to be,” Cook tells Barbara Walters in a “20/20” interview. “The misinformation that came out during the trial is the elephant in the room. It’s the elephant in the room for my kids.”

That man is so full of bullshit I’m surprised it’s not leaking out of his ears. I feel sorry for their children in this situation, but it seems like Cook is almost jealous of the empathy they’re getting. Brinkley was even gracious enough to say she felt sorry for the 18-year-old girl Cook slept with, pointing out that she was taken advantage of. And it didn’t sound like PR bull, it seems like she really meant it. It takes a pretty forgiving nature to feel that way, even towards a young girl who might not have enough experience to fully understand the ramifications of her behavior.

All in all it’s clear who deserves to be publicly chastised in this situation – and telling everyone how hard he had it being married to Christie Brinkley isn’t going to help him out any.

    Or it could be seen by *some* as yet another petty, immature PR strategy being employed by a woman who willifully married a disgusting pervert.

    I just don’t see either of them as “winners”.

  2. Lane says:

    By “some” Kaiser? Just say that’s how you feel, don’t pussyfoot around it.

  3. Mr. T says:

    All I can say is being married to a super model isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be.

  4. daisy424 says:

    Spending Christie’s money didn’t seem to be hard for him.

  5. Cinderella says:

    His kids will probably dislike him when they’re adults.

  6. MomInNH says:

    He couldn’t keep his d*ck in his pants and deserves every sh*teous thing that happens to him. What a p.o.s.

  7. Jack Carter says:

    She should have married Dudley Moore instead.

  8. Kaiser says:

    I thought I was clear, Lane. They’re both losers.

  9. Jinxy says:

    A beautiful woman with extraordinarily bad taste in men. He did breach the confidentiality agreement vetted by the court, so he deserves to get a public ass whipping via her attorney.

    And no he should have limited, supervised visits with his children who no doubt hate him already, he’s a older middle aged man who enjoys sex with underage women making him a predator. Period. He’s a pervert, he’s a creepy online porn addict making him so pathetic and raising issues of fitness. He’s shouldn’t be trusted to be around anyone underage.

  10. gg says:

    totally agree.

    She looks killer in that Barbie sheath. I wish I could wear shoes like hers without screaming in pain.

  11. snappyfish says:

    I think she shouldn’t marry anymore. She isn’t that good at picking mates.

    I remembered she cheated on Billy Joel with the guy she was in the helicopter crash with and they were married on skis and then swooshed down the hill to their reception (fairly lame but whatever floats your wedding ceremony boat) But who was the first husband? Does anyone know?

  12. Carrie says:

    Agree she looks great in that black dress, though I still tend to Kaiser’s view that neither of them comes out of this well (though he is undoubtedly worse).

    Wasn’t her first husband the photographer Peter Beard? Or am I confusing her with Lauren Hutton?….

  13. KDRockstar says:

    She has major issues, obviously. Not as bad as Cook, but they both need to just STFU. This press release is just another attempt for her to get the sympathy, and it’s old. She needs therapy.

  14. Sara says:

    Her first husband was French… he was a motorcyclist and not a celebrity, I don’t think. She was quite young at the time and it didn’t last very long.

  15. Kenny says:

    I think celebrities just get bored. They can basically have what they want, so why not create some kind of relationship drama.

  16. Derek says:

    Sounds like they could both use a little counseling to me!
