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.”

Different Rules Apply    

As a survivor of divorce brought on by verbal and emotional abuse, I believe Christie is the victim here. Peter Cook cannot stand the fact that she divorced him and he has vowed to make her life a living hell, even though he was the pig that caused the end of the marriage. He is an ego maniac who cannot stand that Christie has moved on without him. Hang in there Christie ~ you are tougher than that, don't let him win.

He couldn't stand being Mr. Brinkley, but it's OVER, and he seems to have moved on, so should she.

Poor multi millionaires.I feel SO sorry for them! Boo hoo,they have SO many problems! If she is worth 80 million,why is she even demanding "child support"? Sounds more punitive (revengeful)-she doesn't need that money.Greedy witch!

This troll is a loser. He cheated on his wife with his 18 assistant/Diana Bianchi. The 18 yr old was a homewreckingho. And cook is an old pervert!

If CB would have just learned how to go down to keep a man, she wouldn't have gone through 3 husbands.

Once a d**k, always a d**k! I live in the same area as them, and he has always had a attitude around Christie. I am not a big fan of Christie, but, she is a lot nicer than him. He always had a puss on him when they would be out. He is such a loser!

Matt Lauer is a jerk! A gentleman would not bring out the obviously beautiful and hurt ladie's broken heart ache for her children. He needs to save hitting below the belt for the deserving, but then he does not own a man card...

Why don't you 2 just grow up and move on with your lives? I'm sure you have both embarrassed your kids enough with your infantile behavior.

Somewhere, Billy Joel is humming "Uptown Girl", pausing every once in a while to chuckle to himself.

Christie didn't fool anyone. Her entire purpose for going on the Today show was to bitch about her exhusband.

She's gone through several husbands! Perhaps she always made him feel "less than"...I always got the impression she wanted a sperm donor (like Kourtney K. did to SCOTT DISICK).Once these women breed,they have no use for the man. Narcissism-is hard to live with~

your own luck    

OK, I saw the interview and Christie accused Peter of all the things he has just said about her. Both of them need to stop making public statements about their private lives. Christie went on the show to talk about being on Broadway. However, Matt Lauer was relentless in questioning her about nothing else but her private life. Shame on Matt too.

Why is it the comments we hear are always coming out of this jackass mouth? He's the one who was sleeping w/ his much younger employee. He loves all the attention. Typical mid-age crisis drama queen....I mean King!!
