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.”

I see and have been through so many "he said/she said" when it comes to divorce and child custody. The courts and lawyers do not help much and do make it worse prolonging things. I think one thing we should do when there are kids involved is force every couple splitting up to only contact each through a 3rd party recorded phone call. That will eliminate most of the lies and manipulation. At least for the first year. It seems like battling couples behave more grown up when there is someone else in the room (the recording serves that purpose.

If he is such a STINKER why does she put herself and her kids through this trash....for the $1,200 a month she claims he is supposed to give her in child support? She has millions, why would she go through this for his lousy $1,200 a month. Let him see his kids and tell him to shove his $1,200 up his arse! Why put your kids through this for what is "peanuts" to her!!!! Makes no sense!

nobody is going to ever believe the prima donna model- which is unfortunate. the guy admits he has been diagnosed with narcissistic personality disorder. you all should google it. it's not at all how it's used in every day language- 'being self-centered'. it's a complete inability to feel empathy or accurately witness what is happening around you b/c you only see your own wants/needs. the biggest complaint of people dealing with narcissists is that they are liars. christie can't win... but this guy is literally f'ed up in the head. it's a shame that she's having to be subjected to the prejudices and judgments of everyone just assuming the pretty girl is being a brat for not getting her way.

tho in general she came off as a cry baby and not all that believable (tho matt was being an ASS); if you know anything about people who have been diagnosed with narcissistic personality disorder, you'd think twice about judging her. it's not just a self-centered person--- it's first and foremost, a liar, a manipulator, someone incapable of feeling anything outside their own wants/needs, etc. a professional wrote about this disorder, "if you're reading this, i assume you are the child of a narcissist, because nobody else sticks around such a person..." if a truly independent court psychologist has labeled the guy as having EXTREME MALICIOUS narcissistic personality disorder, this woman and his children deserve all the sympathy they can get. seriously. google it. he admits he has it. it's not 'being self-centered' as most people think. it's much much worse.

Omgosh! Christy has acted nothing but civil throughout this entire thing. She cried because the guys a douche bag and it hurts her to see her kids involved in his crap. I hope he gags on his own words. The man is a total A-hole who caused this whole mess and is the one still acting like a jerk. Grow up and quit blaming everyone else for your missing morals, jerk.

I wish it was law that these two children (Christie and Peter) as well as all parents that put there kids through this much pain would be made to sit in a closed closet until they could act like adults, This is to much pain for kids, GROW UP Christie AND Peter

CB should have walked out. it appeared to me ML ambushed CB & didn't let up. He admitted she was there to talk about Chicago show (not personal life) but he went on the rampage, attack - attack - attack, for 8 minutes! Not only was he off topic, he was rude & offensive. Go back, I hope now - could it be that ML is a buddy of PC- just sayin'.

Maybe she is one of those women who cannot get over the fact that he cheated. The answer is not to divorce someone but have a good old heart-heart and FIX your problem. Too bad though if she is having trouble getting over it. I am sure there are plenty of men who could make her happy.

Christy is the only one I see keeping the continued issue in the media. I think she loves the attention. Notably she has not been able to get another man to pay attention to her. POOR her.

You no what I wish that it was law that when you get a divorce and it's final with children, that if you don't both get along for the children, then you both get locked in a closet until you can act the adults. These people really don't care one bit how much the kids are hurting.
