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.”

She might be more believable, had she not done this EXACT same thing to Billy Joel.

OMG..will somebody shut this tool the eff up? He pumped a 17 year old in Christie's bed over and over and over again. He spent thousands of dollars on internet porn, he's a POS to the highest degree yet he STILL can't shut his mouth. I thought she had a restraing order on this twit?

Christie is STILL a gorgeous woman yet this crybaby effed up his marriage, screwed an ugly underage girl, verbally and emotionally abused Alexa Ray Joel, and spent all his free time looking internet porn. Does Christie have a brother who can put this azzhole's dentist into a higher tax bracket?

“Ever since the separation she has been on a campaign to smear me.”

That implies he has some sort of good name to ruin.

He doesn’t seem to grasp that he trashed his own reputation by cheating with a teenager. Moreover, he taped the sex without the girl’s knowledge or consent.

They are both wrong (it's pretty obvious) and neither will ever win this fight. They are only making themselves look worse in the eyes of the public. Poor kids.

Take it from me...someone whose worked/lived in close proximity to Christie for more than 20 yrs..... She is an absolute B*TCH, a manipulating wench who will stop at NOTHING, step on ANYONE, and "fake cry" at the drop of a hat, to get whatever she wants. She is truly UGLY ON THE INSIDE type of person. She is calculating, shrewd, rude, arrogant, she lies and back stabs people left and right.

I won't defend Peter either. He's no prize. But if I had to choose between the two of them....I'd go with Peter.

while i first thought christie came off as an innocent victim of lauer, after her long-winded and unnecessary complaints, i realize both she and her ex are at fault here..him, for obvious reasons and her for not simply stating she wouldn't discuss such private matters in public. She over-played her victim card. No wonder their situation is so longstanding. p.s. the stress took its toll--she looks awful nowadays.

First of all i cannot believe how gorgeous Christie Brinkley looks.....Doesn't this woman ever age????? and i heard she's never even had botox or plastic surgery....If that's the case, she looks totally AMAZING for her age...she makes women 30 years younger take a look at themselves...she is totally beautiful...i always liked her, and i believe her tears were real...her ex husband is a slime ball...just like Matt Lauer....he badgered poor Christie....God i just can't stomach ugly Matt Lauer....her husband is dead ass homily too....SHe's sooo gorgeous she could get any man even at 58 years of age.....

I love Christie, but I can see she's almost as immature as her ex. One of them needs to clamp up for good, or this won't end until their kids are in their 30's.

There are a few things that always come to mind whenever I see Christie Brinkley. High Maintenance, demanding, and a total need to be the center of attention. I bet she was so difficult to all of her husbands that they looked for any opportunity for a divorce from her.

Divorce and adultery are devasting. Cook has the nerve to throw in her face again having an affair with an 18 year old and he is proud of it. 1 year off of being a pedophile. So proud. you are a douche and if she cries so be it. Takes years to get over that type of trauma. Cook crawl back under the hole you crawled out of.
