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.”

Just some sad PR for her upcoming return to Broadway.

He has no credibility at all. I think she is telling the truth. He is an idiot, she looks better than most 18 year olds. She has taken care of herself. He, in the meantime, looks like a goofball.

Hey Christie, you know what you should really be worried about? That turkey neck you've been getting these last few years. I figure in about another year you'll start rocking silk scarves and turtlenecks.
BTW, you daughter Alexis, the one Billy wrote all those songs about in the '80s - she's what, 30-35 years old now? So how 'bout trotting those grandkids out for us?

Peter Cook needs to learn to keep both his pants zipper and his incredibly ugly pie hole closed. He is a disgrace to all men!

I've never seen Christie try to keep it in the media--this was the first time I ever witnessed her publicly addressing this. He, however, is always trying to garner sympathy--and always in the name of the children. He created this mess. He's the one that needs to shut up.

Don't believe those tears from Brinkley for one minute.Every husband she ever had has cheated on her.I feel she is vicious scorned woman who would do anything to get back at her husband including ruin her children to do so.Also one to many facelifts who tears were just a phoney as her plastic surgery

Not saying he's a prize, but the word has been out for years that she's a pretty awful person.

O.K. father of the year, were you thinking about what's best for your children when you were banging the 18-year-old?

He is such as *******. He constantly says horrible, nasty insulting comments about her, then if she responds at all, he goes on this "she needs to move on" parade. She needs to learn to stop responding to it. It says more about him than it does her, and when she responds, it only gives him an opportunity to keep the ball rolling.

All that crying with no tears. What a contriving person. It was obvious to me that she was acting out her sorrow. She is an actor isn't she? Why she wants to drag this on is beyond me.

Gee imagine that she's bitter that the man she loved, trusted and supported betrayed her. This guy is a complete POS. Who gives a f*ck what he thinks or says.
