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 is a woman scorned. You can not win. You should have kept your pants zipped.

Apparently Peter Cook has a problem letting go of his former wife. It's a shame these ex's can't move on. Divorce means divorce.

She was ambushed by Matt Laher, she went on to discuss her B
roadway play, he ambushed her with questions regarding her divorce.

Peter seems like a jerk, he was the one leaking stuff to the press to assassin Christie's character. He has no shame, so everything he is projecting at Christie, he is guilty of.

You are not without fault, takes two to make and break a relationship.

You have ownership too.

What would mess up the kids is knowing Daddy was boffing a 19 year old while he was married to mommy. Cook is a degenerate, who wants a wealthy woman to support him. Hes sick in the head and is just bitter that Christie didnt have to pay him much money after the divorce and shes gotten on with her life.
Go away a**hole.

Does Peter think he walks on water?
What is his payoff being cunning now running to the media, doing what he is accusing her of doing?

So he thinks only he has that right to discuss and slam his wife, that she is not allowed to have a voice?

He is the one being shameless.

As Judge Judy has said many times: Your supposed to love your children more than you hate your X. Give it a break Brinkley, you get no more sympathy!

Obviously he is feeling guilty about something and afraid his little secrets are going to be made public, to lash out like this. Getting defensive is a sign of guilt or wanting to hide something to blame the other to deflect attention off of yourself.

Not impressed with her"performance" on the Today Show! She is blaming her husband for being in the media she just stooped to an all time low. She needs to shut up and move on and quit crying crocodile tears. Her poor poor children, they definitely have it a lot better than the majority of children of divorced families! She talked about her husband being a narcissistic manipulator well honey it takes one to know one!

So....cheating with an 18 year old doesn't effect your children? Anyway, as usual with he said/she said situations, the truth lies somewhere in the middle. They both have hidden agendas. He didn't have to talk to the media either, not even to clear his name.
