Brinkley Begged Hubby Not to Kill Himself

7/3/2008 1:31 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

On the second day of testimony in supermodel Christie Brinkley's super screwed-up divorce case, Brinkley says almost ex-hubby Peter Cook once called her threatening to kill himself by smashing his car into a tree.

Brinkley said she begged Cook not to do it because it would destroy their children. When asked why -- Christie responded "it was the right thing to do."

And -- if you can believe it -- the story gets better.

The soon to be ex-Mrs. Cook testified that she didn't want to believe her husband was boning an 18-year-old -- even though the teenager's own dad told her about it. On the stand, Brinkley says Diana Bianchi's stepfather tapped her on the shoulder right before she was to speak at a high school graduation and said "That husband of yours won't knock it off. He's having an affair with my teenage daughter." To make matters worse, she heard the news right in front of her husband.

Christie says Petey repeatedly denied the affair. She says she was "shocked" because her picket fence perfect life had been "shattered" and "vanished."

She has lost all respect in my eyes. She's dragging this man through the mud to make herself look good but she just looks heartless and cold. He cheated on her, it happens every day. Move on.

Let's just call her Brainless Brinkley from here on out. Her oldest daughter must be ashamed......or she SHOULD be ashamed. What a dumb blonde she is!

Boy do I feel sorry for those kids. She should be ashamed of herself for allowing all their dirty laundry to be public. True her ex is a fat jerk for having an affair (plus the porn stuff is just CRAZY) but she should have put aside her anger for the good of the kids. It's not like it's her first marriage (what is this...number FOUR). Get over it!

Have read previously that stepdad warned "the player" to leave his daughter alone numerous times, and also told him he would tell his wife. PC totally ignored these warnings. PC is sick! Have also read he called Bianchi even after the truth came out. Did he really think he would not be found out. What theatrics ... threatening to kill himself and bawling like a girl yesterday.

She's a mess. This doesn't need to be made public. Their child is going to suffer more than she has. She was in the magazines beaming and proclaiming that she is "so in love and happy with this wonderful man". She really needs to get to know people better before marrying them. And keep your private life private.
