In what way is Christie narcissitic? She may be beautiful and want to maintain her beauty but she seems to love her children.

What about that incident in the bathtub?

She is a horrible mother and it matches her horrible breast job.

narcissist? I see the complete opposite. Brinkley is the narcissist not Cook. Brinkley is just angry and will do what she can to throw mud and drag her kids into the spotlight, like a bad parent would. She wants attention and wants Cook to look like the bad guy when in fact she is the bad one. When she digs up an unneccessary unrelated issues just to make him look bad it makes her look like the golddigging biiotch she really is. She probably was an unfit parent and wife, so Cook went elsewhere. Remember she cheated in previous marriages too. Karma's a bieeotch Christie. She is just a model that did a few commercials. Dont get me wrong she has some money but I bet you Cook has much more, he's in a steady profession.

That was the problem, she didn't perform super mom head. Her old man had to go to a younger gal for that. She's now looking for money so she can get her body in shape and get a young guy. The kids are just the pawns in this battle. Christie screwed up and didn't give hubby head.
And HOW do you know all of this???...

If any of the writers were ever in love with someone and then totally destroyed by a person they thought was their partner for life you would understand. Many of us women are going through exactly what Christie is going through except we haven't learned to smile at the camera yet. We don't have money, expensive lawyers and a court appointed psychologist. Maybe you would like to interview some of us? We are all willing. All around Christie's age and above. I personally am 62. We are being forced to go into debt, lose our homes having lost our childrens concrete security of their family being together through thick and thin do to infideltiy by our spouces. We would love to sit down with her and you as now she could be an advocate for us and we could sympathize with her and her feelings. My heart goes out to her and her children. Mine are much older and having a very tough time. But, I cannot afford an analyst or any more attorneys. I am ready to claim bankruptsy. Please relay this message to her and her attorney. I thank you kindly.

I cannot believe that Christie is being blamed for fighting for full custody of her children. She has been duped by a man she fell in love with who used her money and fame to fund his secret lifestyle of porn, affairs and lies. I am not saying she is perfect and does not have issues too such as idealism but if he was not happy he did not have to stay. She has every right to be angry and want to protect her children. She has always earned money and still does so how is she a gold digger? Christie may have beauty and wealth but that does not mean she does not hurt like any of us. We must focus on the issues not punish her for her privileged position. I think most women who had been treated this way would protect themselves if they could.

She just completed her 4th marriage. She has issues. She must be an absolute tyrant to live with. 4 MARRIAGES and she's a beautiful looking woman, what must that really say about her!!!!

The 1st marriage ended without acrimony. The 2nd marriage ended cordially with respect. The 3rd marriage ended due to Taubman being a F-R-A-U-D who had no money of his own (he reportedly STILL owes her almost $1 million). This last marriage ended by pornography being found by HIS child.

What does that say about her? Unlucky in love, unlucky in marriage...

No, it says that she's a STUP1D BYTC4 with about as much good judgment as that of a coked-up junkie.

If you are saying, in your unique way, that she makes questionable judgements, I do agree with you about the 3rd marriage. She should have done a thorough background check to see if Taubman was as he said he was.

The 1st marriage lasted 8 years, The 2nd marriage lasted 9 years, and the 3rd marriage lasted 10 years. Are those marriages based on bad judgements or quite possible fault found on BOTH SIDES?

In this day and age, women are able to walk away and live just fine on their own and not be dependent on a man to 'pay their way'. Not the way, as you state, a 'coked-up junkie' would...

Not only Dr. Herman, but also the lawyers said it: Brinkley is a very very very angry woman, very furious even after two years since the Bianchi thing came out. In my opinion this anger, especially, and maybe her "untouchable" ego seems to be the main reason she keeps jumping from hubby to hubby. She has husband number four behind her and yet still I doubt if she really knows the reason why: where the problem actually lies. A good marriage depends not only on love but also the ability to respect and forgive one another in turbulent times and not simply putting ones ego above everything else. Talking of hubby number five. What does she need another hubby for? The occasional sex (once or twice in a year)? She doesn`t need another unfortunate hubby for that. A one night stand would do. Men are really suffering! She just wants to frustrate another poor guy with her anger and ego, only to drag him through another bitter divorce to the detriment of her kids, too. Had she learned to control her anger she would maybe have still been married to husband number one till today. Also, I doubt if a child`s biological father would have pushed his/her head in to a bucket of water as she claimed peter did: if only she (Christie) had learned to stay with a single hubby.
She happens to share some traits with my ex who is also very very very angry. She claims I do work too much to feed the family - I am a Software Developer. Is that reason enough to be angry with someone? I think it is a serious disorder to be unnecessarily angry on such an alarming scale. She keeps throwing her weight about violently, powered by the momentum of her vicious anger. We happen to be living in her country where I am a foreigner. I just hope she doesn't crash that weight of her's against the wall just like Christie crashed her's againts Peter Cook's formidable wall!

A supermom does not take her son away from 2 different fathers because her relationship ended badly with them both. This boy is in for some mess to work through when he's older and can make his own choices. Did either of these 2 men do anything abusive to this boy? I bet not. Christie Brinkley will have to answer to that soon enough. In the meantime she better come up with something good to tell these kids about their personal lives being splashed all over the news and media.

You seem to be a very bitter person full of envy.
