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.”

His behavior would indicate he is the one who hasn't moved on. This TV interview is the 1st she has done on the subject, he has done four about the marriage + print interviews. The guy is clearly a narcissist who thinks he can do anything and it's ok, but cannot handle being rejected. She will never have peace from him.

I could not believe what i was watching!!!! Matt Lauer is a bully!!! What a Jerk. His money and power at NBC has gone to his head!!!! Mr.lauer should research narsisitic personally disorder or maybe he has it too google it. Christie ex has it.He has a mental disorder none of these reporter understand this man is mentally sick. He is a mental abuser but no one is seeing this. Christie tried to explain the disorder she he was evaluated by the courts and was found to be a Narsisstic person!!! Christie cried because no one understands what these sick people are about. They are sick i feel that Billy Bush was the only one who even mention this disorder. Christie is suffing she's been mentally abuse these don't stop she is his narsistic suppy he's been going after for years!!! I saw her pain. Everyone should learn more about this disorder it's a serious mental disorder!!!! Stop blaming the victim christie. matt lauer shame on you, your a jerk with power!! Christie deserves an apology from you. All those degrees but did you look up narsistic disorder is a quite mental sickness that affect everyone in the family.

Cook the perv met his 17 year old mistress when she was just a 15-year-old clerk in a toy store. He was Diana Bianchi sugar daddy...

I've said it before and I'll say it again. Pot, meet kettle. If you don't want her talking about you, quit talking about her. You seem as obsessed with her as you claim she is about you.

he needs to register as a sex offender, from what I read Diana Bianchi said that she met Cook when she was just a 15-year-old clerk in a toy store in 2003. So this means that this old perv was basically pursuing her..
