Does this article mean Cook admitted to sleeping with 35 women during his marriage?? And His lawyers go on TV and sneer as they say, "Ms. Brinkley's motivation for a public trial is revenge."

If my husband did this to me.... the world would never see him again and he would spend the rest of his days in a pit of his own filth, begging for the horror of a public trial.

Mr Cook, the judge, Brinkley and the women in the first post all need to be put in a cell with the key thrown away. Ms Brinkley is doing this to have her aging puss kept on the front page. Bad publicity is better than o publicity. Does anyone smell a page from Hillary's sympathy book?

Peter Cook obviously is very addicted to sexual escapades, and Christy Brinkley has difficulty choosing approriate husbands for herself. Why she chooses to expose her children to all this media madness does not speak well of her at all, whatever her own selfish reasons are.

Brinkley seems very phony and flaky, and not very bright either as proven by her repeated broken marriages. She's living in her own little world. Very sad for the children. Cook looks like a jerk. I think Brinkley and Cook deserve each other.

With Brinkley acting as über-bitch, her kids will definitly need a shrink later on--and in the end may not necessarily hate their father because of this turmoil, but rather blame mommy dearest. Yes, she was wronged, but then, how often did she hit the sack with him? Fidelity is a two way street. He obviously was very lonely.

Cook has a personality disorder. A Narcissism. NPD, read about it online, it makes sense why Brinkley wants to have sole custody.
Too many children's lives are ruined by mentally ill parents.
It needs to be public.

Narcissistic personality disorder (NPD), commonly referred to as megalomania, is a personality disorder that is characterized by extreme feelings of self-importance, a high need for admiration, and a lack of empathy. Narcissistic personality disorder can be considered to be a pathological form of narcissism. It is estimated that 0.7-1% of the general population is afflicted with narcissistic personality disorder. Most people with narcissistic personality disorder (50-75%, according to the DSM) are men.

Clinical experience

Narcissistic personality disorder is often diagnosed (comorbid) with other mental health disorders, especially substance abuse and impulsive and reckless behaviors.

there's no defense for Cook. None.
Nada.

Brinkley is having a public trial because he refused to settle privately - no doubt because after freeloading off her for 10 years he doesn't want to go back to work.

Small matter. It seems there are enough morons and bimbos in the Hamptons that someone will take him in, albeit probably not in the style he's become accustomed to.

Hard to feel sorry for someone too stupid to know when he had it good.

er, judging by his history with Samantha Cole, Mr. Cook's habits of dating people who were quasi-pedophile were established before he met Brinkley.

IMO, he married Christie for her money and then didn't have the class or decency to keep it in his pants, for her sake - or for his own.

A real prize toilet content, that Cook.

Mr. Libertarian in NY...Mr. Cook was not merely lonely but deemed a true narcissist by a court appointed doctor (and his actions scream this!) His poor (very bad) choices have nothing to do with Ms. Brinkley or any lack of intimacy on her part. He is sick and Ms. Brinkley was a victim in every way. That he would want sole custody of the kids is absurd -and so awful to do to her, after all he's already done. What a jerk. So, NO, the kids will not blame their mom (nice try though.)

Correction, Brinkley is having a trial because he refused to settle. It is "public" because her need to retaliate and humiliate Cook was more important than trying to protect her children from the humiliation. No kid should have to be exposed to every detail of their parents sex/non sex life. Now these kids are going to have to deal with not only knowing all the details (which would have happened in a private trial) but also knowing that their friends, neighbors, schoolmates know it too.

I do agree with you, but why did this man have to spent $3000 on porn and espose himself on a web cam with son's pc,and people wonder why kids are the way they are today.Brinkley's children have to go to school granted be it a private one but the kids there are like all the rest they hear parents or relatives talk about this trial! The only ones we should feel pity for are the her kids!

Divorced four times, Ms. Brinkley most likely will be divorced five times in the not so distant future. In the end, I feel sorry for Newsday turning more every day into a gossip tabloid just like the NY Post and further away from serious minded journalism like the NY Times. Brinkley, of course, is tabloid media creature material and Newsday just can't resist reporting the sensational and steamy. Let's see divorced four times that sounds like substantial information pertinent to her character and the case, nevertheless Newsday chooses to repeatedly mention Cook's $3,000 porno habit and his extra marital affairs. Why doesn't Newsday mention Brinkley's ugly divorce with Long Island's Billy Joel? That also was a lurid, nasty break up.

You're right...fidelity is a two way street. It appears to me that Mr Cook took a one way, no?

And Christie isn't narcissistic by bringing this open, hurting her kids, her constant need to be in front of the camera's, her constant need to be married at any cost? Give me a break. I think they need a new more qualified psychiatrist to take a look at this. He certainly didn't take a good look at her either. He's got a problem, but what about her? Those kids need to be kept at a distance from both of them. They have two very narcissistic parents, but who's the lesser of evils? I'm female, and I know that men are into different things. Cheating, not nice, but as everyone has said, she did it to Billy too with Taubman, so they are both guilty of the same offense. And she leaves court similing too. I would say it takes two, both have offended and all need serious counseling. Nobody should be penalized more than the other. Major counseling, shared visitation. Any mother who would open this to the public at the expense of her kids, just to be in the news, big no no and major narcisstic issues.
