So Peter Cook claims he was seeking a connection he couldn’t find in his marriage because the emotional aspect of their lives had changed.

I’m not surprised that Peter Cook is trying to blame Christie Brinkley for the affair he had which led to their divorce.

He’s latched onto the latest excuse that cheating husbands are using to blame their wives for their extramarital affairs.

Cook has taken his cue straight from the highly controversial new infidelity book The Truth About Cheating – Why Men Stray and What You Can Do About It. He’s parroting the views of author and marriage counselor Gary Neuman, that emotional dissatisfaction is the main reason men cheat.

Neuman’s theory is that men cheat because they feel unappreciated – because they don’t get enough praise, attention or ego stroking from their wives.

You can see why this excuse would appeal to a narcissist like Peter Cook.

By latching onto this newly introduced, widely publicized, and completely incorrect reason (excuse) for why men cheat, Cook, a confirmed narcissist,(the opinion of the court appointed psychiatrist in his divorce trial) obviously saw this as way to grab the spotlight again.

See the post on my blog at for the rest of this discussion on why Peter Cook is blaming Christie for his affair.
