Peter Cook: "I'm Not a Scumbag Pervert"

In last night's "20/20" interview with Barbara Walters, Christie Brinkley's ex, Peter Cook, claimed he's not a womanizing, sex-crazed pervert. He's just drawn that way.

Cook went on to claim his motivations in the world's ugliest divorce trial were not financial. Comparing his sullied reputation to an "elephant in the room," Cook told Walters he just wants his kids to know the real him.

He must mean the guy who's the loving father and dedicated husband -- not that other guy who bathed daily in online porn and banged his 18-year-old assistant.
