LOL...... Imagine feeling hurt by a cheating spouse........ who fell for a gold digger, when in both fact and reality Christie Brinkley got caught with her pants down gold digging in March of 94 while married to Billy Joel!
The helicopter crash was in March, 1994, when she was still dating her third husband, Richard Taubman.
The divorce with Billy was a few months later in August 94.
I bet Billy was shell shocked to read the papers and see her on the slopes in a wrecked chopper with her new 'wealthy' kinky boyfriend.

Hey. You marry a kinky, you get kinky. Money is blind aint it. But then , high supposed 'class' celebrities spread thier legs for the luxury and glitz and fame and should be the last to complain that as Kink do, so kink do when they find themselves from being a slut puppy, in a slutty relationship.

Celebs should try to find someone outside the fame game for a real relationship. If, that is, thier ego's can handle it.

wrong! I have an inside track ( I know one of his former band members very well) on that and in fact - her marriage to Billy was already over - they were keeping it "together" for the kid but the marriage was laready waaaaay over and they both acknowledged that. She fell in love with someonen and of course then pursued to end the marriage legally and move on - there was no sneaky infiedlity at all. And in fact - Bill was always screwing around on her throughout the entire marriage - she mayb e demanding and yeah that may not be easy for some guys to deal with but Bill was no "innocent man" - not at all...

Aha! see what happens when I lump in generalizations the 'hollywood' sleep around crowd to what I gleaned on the news?
My apologies to Christie and William Joel.
See, what happens when one doesnt have an inside track? In fact, I thought it so devastaded Billy that he took to the vino a lil too much, and sure was alone quite some time.
I should reserve my comments to other gold diggers lol.
But in truth, we know all about the person we are going to marry. And if they be kinky and rich, I might as well expect the worse from the get go, rather then think 'from my divine light and intervention' they will change thier errant ways of womanizing or menizing whatever the case may be.

God Bless you and your family Christie.

The only thing I can say about Mr. Cook is that he was honest about the whole thing very early and seemed sorry.

Ms Bianchi will also get hers because she is not innocent in this either.

She should've stayed with Billy Joel. Why is it some people or celebrities, don't want to take as much time to save their marriage, as they do getting into one? Doesn't even seem worth it to get married anymore, doesn't seem to mean all that much anymore.

Hey celebs don't have to put with nonsense of anykind cause have a lot of their own money.

A man isn't easy to live with and I am sure they often feel the same about women but the truth is the lack of money keep more couples together. The saying 2 can live cheaper than one is true.

Christie is a very nice easy going person. Maybe not always too bright but whos perfect.

I guess - I would like to think we know the truth about our lovers when we decide to marry them - on the other hand perhaps some people are deviant enough to hide that which is unbecoming to them. But, I think , at some level , we must know. Chrisite has always tried to put the best possible face on her life when it is being reviewed by the public (which - she seems to enjoy and go out of her way to have occur). But - as with Bill - the reality was - things were NOT ok - I remember one tv interview she did - it was about 20 minutes of a show ( can't remember whcih show ) She gave a tour of the home she and Bill shared - chatted up the interviewer - and then Bill showed up in his car - he was obviously not happy to be on camera adn that part of the show was brief to say the least. At the end - Christie sat on a couch bemoaning how everyone is trying to make it seem they have problems but they were fine - really!!! About a year later they filed for divorce. AGain - I know one of his former band members fairly well - and it was common knowledge to those in the know that the marriage was not doing so well despite Christies best efforts to put on a good face. Even her daughter said - at the trial last week - she felt her mom was living in a bubble. So for all her great looks, money, talent and chutzpah - she has some major flaws when it come to romance and dealing with reality I guess. I know she is said to be very demanding and likes things her way or the highway so I would guess being her other half can be a trying experience. Still - just as she - at some level might have known he was a cad - he at some level must have known she was a high maintanence lover. But, I wish her well.
