"Christie Brinkley's estranged husband has been silent about recent reports that he had an affair with an 18-year-old employee while married to the supermodel. Now his reportedly desperate apology is receiving a very public airing.
"This is an aberration," Peter Cook, 47, said through a lawyer, according to a column by Cindy Adams published today in the New York Post. "I'm sorry. I'm contrite. I'm stupid. Foolish. No excuse."
Adams wrote that Cook's words were provided to her by his attorney, Norman Sheresky.
"I love my wife. ... For a lifetime I've tried to prove how much I love her," Cook said, according to the article.
Sheresky said Cook, the model's fourth husband, is hoping for a reconciliation with Brinkley, 52. He defended Cook as a "man who loves his wife and who lives for his children."
Loves his wife, lives to prove his love, lives for his children, but has been banging the eighteen year Diana Bianchi for a year.
This man got up every day knowing he was cheating on his wife -FOR A YEAR. He probably kissed Christie, slept with her, went shopping with her, held her hand, went to diner, went on holidays together. He probably told her he loved her, patted her on the arse when walking past her in the kitchen, made her coffee, kissed the top of her head with affection, read in bed together, worried about the kids, made vet appointments, laughed with her, loved and was loved by her.
If I was Christie Brinkley I would be questioning every moment of my life for the last year. This was not an aberration, this was not a one-night stand, a moment of madness. This man had a realtionship for a year. He was able to live and lie so expertly that Christie-his wife, a smart lady- never twigged or sensed he had a second life.
For that I would never forgive him.
