this_week_010122-01-01.jpgThe drama in Christie Brinkley’s world never stops. According to the National Enquirer, her recent marriage bustup is a giant scandal. The supermodel just found out her husband of ten years, architect Peter Cook, has been cheating with his 19 year old “personal assistant.” This is Christie’s fourth failed marriage – Billy Joel is one of the exhusbands – and she has a total of three children. The Enquirer says Cook,47, met his teenage girlfriend when she was 18 and working in a toy store. He immediately hired her to work in his office and wined and dined her, promising to help her with a music career. Recently Christie and Peter were out at an event and the teen’s furious stepfather (who happens to be a cop) confronted Peter, and spilled the beans about the affair right in front of horrified Christie. Brinkley kicked the sleazeball out the next day and announced their separation.

    Wasn’t Billy Joel her second husband? I thought she was married to some artist for a few years before she married Joel.

    What a slime ball.
    Sounds like a middle aged man’s melt down.

    I absolutely adore Christie Brinkley – have for years. Does anyone remember her fiance who was killed? I think that he was a motorcycle racer. She has been a very involved parent and is now trying to find time to also help care for her parents. Cook is a fool and he’ll soon realize it, if he doesn’t already.
    Give Christie credit – when she knows a relationship isn’t going to work, she doesn’t twiddle her thumbs and say “poor me.” Girlfriend moves on because she knows that life is too short to waste on scum.

    Yep, agree with you, 11:17. When Christie makes a mistake, she jumps right in to try to fix it.
    She and Peter looked like the perfect couple! Ten years together. We can’t blame Christie for this guy’s mistake. (Would like to see a picture of the girl, though.)

    Married four times. Either she makes poor choices in a mate, or she’s the poor mate.

    She started out to be an artist. It seems that those are the people that she’s been attracted to, with the exception of the developer that she wed.
    Christie has been very active not only with her family, but civic matters as well. From ovarian cancer to handgun control, to UNICEF, and Standing for Truth About Radiation (she & Cook), she has become involved with issues that affect us all.
    I think that speaks more to her character and the type of mate she is than the number of marriages she’s had. As for Cook, well he’s just another middle-aged man grasping for one more shot of youth. I think that speaks for itself.

    I love Christie. I’m glad she’s strong enough to walk away from a man that cheated on her. I admire her that she’s not being a typical Hollywood dumb
    b%#@* and standing by her man. Good for her. She’s my idol.

    Christie Brinkley has three different kids from three different men. The most confusing day of her life must be Father’s Day. If anyone is sleaze, it’s her.
    Why whould any man in her life think of her as his ‘one and only’? The converse sure ain’t possible!
    Peter Cook is an attractive successful man. He should have known in the first place to find himself a young wife, one who hasn’t already been passed around the table like a bottle of wine, and who could provide him with a better family than only a single biological child and a bunch of step-kids left over from other men.
    Fortunately for him, it looks like he won’t make the same mistake next time around.

    Good for Christie! She has enough self-esteem to throw the bum out; he was cheating with a girl YOUNGER than his stepdaughter (Alexa Ray). You go, girl!

    Heh, and Billy Joel remarried a girl just about the same age as his and Christie’s daughter (Alexa Ray).
    What is it about being married to a super model? Do you suppose that once a man lives with one, and sees what she looks like day to day without all of the well-constructed image and artifical glamour, he realizes that there really is no substitute for youth?

    What was Christie Brinkley thinking when, in her early 40’s, she married a man five years younger than her? Didn’t she see the writing on the wall saying, “This will last until I hit menopause and then blow up in my face”?

    Maybe you might want to check with Mary Tyler Moore…isn’t her husband 15 years younger than her? Get over the age factor already and focus on the character factor.

    He’s having a mid-life crisis only now it’s going to cost him his family too. I’m sure he didn’t do it because of Christy. Guys only think of their own gratification and he didn’t think he would ever loose anything. It’s never easy but my hat is off to Christy for booting him out. No one needs to be treated like that and she is better off without a louse like that. I’m sure their are lots of good men who would die to be with her.

    You know, women like Hillary Clinton put up with their slimeball husbands who are serial cheaters. They forgive time and time again.
    Christie kicked this creep out the next day after she learned of his dalliance, and she left her last husband the minute she found he lied to her about his finances. Her comment about him was something like, “If he would lie about something like that, he’d lie about other things as well.”
    It seems to me that Christie has high standards – good for her – she deserves much better!
    Who’s better? I choose Christie.

    this is to the commentor dated 7/16/06 7:34 PM-the only sleazy person is YOU for writing this debasing commentary about a woman who wound up with an alcoholic husband (Billy Joel), got out of that bad-deal and married a lovely man named mr taubman who was accidentally killed in a plane crash; from where i sit the only one who got a bad here is christie who made a severely bad character choice in PETER COOK who is clearly a narcissitic pedophile like a lot of confused men his age; these men will see the light when the STD”s start catching up with them; U need therapy for your pathetic comment about your view of her and her marriages..

    She’ll handle the whole thing with grace and dignity, the way she always has. Give her a break; she never says a bad word against anyone.

    “got out of that bad-deal and married a lovely man named mr taubman who was accidentally killed in a plane crash;”
    Um, he was not killed in a plane crash, they got married after their helicopter crash and then divorced after one year.

    Christie needs therapy to figure out why she picks fcuk-up men.
    Otherwise her current hubby is a scum sucking freaky daddy who deserves all the bad press in the world.

    Exactly, 2:14.
    Obviously the guy was bored, unethical, sleazy and emotionally immature. CB gave him status and connections…who knows maybe CB would have allowed him to have a mistress every once and awhile-if he had discussed it with her, that is.
    This goes to show us gals that having beauty, riches and children aren’t enough for weasels posing as men.

    Billy Joel was a boozing coked up skirt-chaser while he was married to Christie.

    Why is the focus on the ‘fourth’ marriage? Who cares- the focus should be on a very creepy husband living a double life. What Peter Cook does to women is sick and he does not care who it is regardless of ‘age’. It appears the only thing he needs a girl/woman for is to feed his twisted ego.

    Christy Brinkley is and will continue to be one of the most beautiful radiant women int he world. She is a gorgeous, fresh classic beauty who stands the test of time. She is as gorgeous now as she was 20 years ago. Her husband Peter Cook must be a very messed up man with a huge ego and small penis. The women he cheated with are not only young enough to be his daughter but extremly trashy and cheap looking. The kind of girls that are a dime a dozen at any local strip club. What a loser!!!

    No one knows what goes on in a marriage except for the two people involved. That being said, Peter Cook is pond scum and I’m thrilled Christie kicked him to the curb.

    I wish I had christy brinkley’s money! I would leave my cheating and lying husband in a heart beat. The reason I can’t is I have uveitis of the eyes.

    Joel cheated on Christy throughout their marriage and was drunk most of the time too….the only thing good that came out of the union is their beautiful daughter “Alexa Ray”. Taubman was a phony who Christy quickly saw through – she got Jack Paris from that deal, and Saillor was the baby with Cook.

    Christy is beautiful, classy and, most importantly, happy. She has three wonderful children and, it seems, a great outlook on life. I hope she keeps that in mind during this sad time for her. I’ve always thought she was such a lovely woman.

    One of America’s Sweethearts is battling a serious drug addiction- not hers, but her best friend’s. Through the years these two have been stuck to one another like white on rice and her fame rubbed off on her pal. They’ve been roomies, have worked together on set, and even launched a business venture together. But all that success has come with a price. After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work. What’s a girl to do?
