Christie Brinkley's Ex:

'Today' Show Cryfest Was

Cunning and Shameless

3/28/2012 6:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Christie Brinkley's ex-husband claims the supermodel's teary appearance on "Today" was nothing more than a "cunning and shameless" attempt to "garner public sympathy by "dishonest means."

Peter Cook released a statement ... BLASTING Brinkley's interview with Matt Lauer ... saying, “Christie was entirely dishonest about the circumstances surrounding the current court action which was precipitated by her and ... is doing further damage to our children."

In case you missed the "Today" show interview yesterday, an emotional Brinkley claimed Cook has been on a mission to destroy her life since they broke up.

Cook is clearly unhappy ... his statement continues, "I am also shocked by the blatant lies she told regarding our divorce proceedings of four years ago, including denying the indisputable fact that she fought for an open courtroom despite the warnings it would harm our children.”

 "[Brinkley] will stop at nothing to continue the drama in our lives in order to harass me and keep herself relevant in the media."

Cook also claims Brinkley is simply still bitter from when he cheated on her with an 18-year-old woman during their marriage ... saying, "Clearly, Christie does not believe I was punished enough four years ago for my indiscretions in our marriage, but for the sake of our children I wish she would find a way to move on.”

The show touched on the fact that Peter Cook is a malignant narcissist. Until I met one, I had no idea what that meant. Narcissists do not feel love, and they do not feel empathy or remorse. They obtain love from initially being charming, loving and all-in-all perfect. Then everything changes and they spend much of their time degrading and insulting the object of their affection. It is mental abuse of the worst kind, and because there are children involved, she cannot just walk away from it. Everything from Cook's mouth is a calculated lie.

Peter may be a psychopath or sociopath manipulator without a conscience. They wreak havoc in people's lives, can be charming and believable, but there is usually a power and control motive. He likely thought he could get away with anything, thought he could bamboozle his way out of it, and found out he couldn't. He likely doesn't like anyone putting him in his place. Christie will never win with him because likely he will always put her down, humiliate her, and tread upon her soul. He didn't respect her before, and he doesn't now. The best thing to do is not discuss him, ever. Likely the kids are sick of the whole thing, also, but what can they do. He is their father and he will do whatever he can, likely, to get back at Christie. He was unfaithful, but I would think he was a lot more than that - psychologically and emotionally abusive which he likely still is.

Well if anyone is an expert on shamelessness, it is her wacky ex! What he never stops spewing is called projection and sociopaths accuse their victims of what they do and are. This guy is like the poster boy for malignant narcissism and no amount of insulting everyone's intelligence can manipulate our minds into thinking he is anything but a whining, bullying fellow with a felony record and a long list of dishonorable behavior, period. She loved him, that was her crime...

Peter, Put "the shut to the up" and grow up! You are an exact example of how some men think its ok to disrespect their wives and families...then think its supposed to just be quietly dismissed.
F@#$ u! You did the crime, 4 years isnt enough time.
