Like He Ever Wanted The Kids


So, what do you do to a guy that cheats on you upwards of 35 times during your marriage including with a teenager that he pays off with your money to keep silent? Oh, and for good measure he also abused your daughter and spent $40,000 a year of your money to watch porn. Why you pay him $2.1M is what you do.

So, basically, Peter Cook is laughing all the way to the bank. Does anyone really think he gives a crap about his kids? All he cared about was the money and he got it. Sure, he only gets to visit the kids when mom says it is ok, but he wasn't going to see them anyway. Christie Brinkley gets the kids and the properties but has to write a check to Peter for a couple of million.

Now Peter is free to move on to his latest woman who has even more money than Christie. He can kick back, get her to pay for some porn, cheat on her if they get married, and when they divorce get her for some money as well. So basically Peter is just a man whore. Something to be proud of I'm sure. Getting money from Christie in exchange for giving up something he didn't want anyway must have just given him the biggest smirk last night. What an ass.

Actually he is getting Billy Joel's money, because I am sure modeling was not that lucrative for Christie Brinkley.

Her money must have come from her divorce settlement from Joel.

Christina said...

Wait...he also abused her daughter? First I am hearing of this...

Mark S. Inman said...

Wow - Christie Brinkley remembered only for burning Billy Joel's hands and ruining his musical career. Ironic! Trust me, she's made plenty of dough from her modelling days, plus that line of clothes at Sears....>grin<

Seriously, in case you forgot re: Christie Brinkley - she was in that era of SI Swimsuit Issue models right before Cindy Crawford was invented. Hawt.

ms snarky said...

old story about him hating Alexis, I read at least a couple of years ago that she moved out because he was so lousy to her.

ms snarky said...

burning Billy Joel's hands? explain, please.

and I know this is very, very wrong, but I've always thought B Joel was way hot.

lyz said...

I'm sure $2.1 mil is a small price to pay for getting that cockroach exterminated from her home. I'd say she got the better end of the deal.

donna said...

wait a second .. what stupid woman is he hooked up with? she certainly must be thinking twice now about him .. and wasnt christie one of the original "super models" .. I am sure she has wads of cash ..

nancer said...

i agree with the shrink. christie needs to examine her choices of husbands.
but having said that, this guy puts the douche in douchebag. very sad for the kids.

Ed said...

Christie Brinkley is worth upwards of 60,000,000 dollars and still has many lucrative endorsement deals

Sylvia said...

I still don't understand if she was paying his bills how come she didn't notice what she was paying for.

Wouldn't you question a bill if it had hotmama.com 1-999-xxx-xxxx.

ms snarky said...

$2.1M is nothing. Think what she had to pay to have him on her hands for this long -

-- $300K minimum to the teenager
-- $40K a year for porn for 10 years ($400K)
-- say another $150-300K annually for cheating with whomever (conservatively, $1.5M over the life of the marriage)

and lord knows what she spent to make him more successful than he really was. $5 mil? $10 mil?

$2.1 million starts to look like a bargain to have the trash hauled away.

@ms snarky

Back in - what - 1985, 1984 - When CB and BJ first got together, there were these laughable stories about her being a klutz around him - and one of the stories was how she'd burned his hands with a cig (or something) - and the commentary was 'He's a lucky guy, he's with Christie Brinkley' - I remember thinking 'Now we're going to have to put up with 'Uptown Girl' and other horrible tunes like that for a while....'

zandra said...

I think she made this public just to force him to settle, the private detectives were to go on the stand today, he would have been cremated.

She paid him to go away. I don't think she's going to lose sleep over two million. She owns 18 houses in the Hamptons alone. She's a smart cookie, with bad choices in men. I hope she's not one of those women who feel if they are sleeping with someone they should marry them ugh.

jax said...

best money she ever spent.

icywench said...

i think he'll go through the motions of seeing the kids now but as they grow older, the every wednesday and every other weekend will turn into just the every other weekend. then it'll be one weekend a month, then only once in awhile. he'll wake up one morning, realize his kids are young adults with their own lives and interests that don't include him and the joke will be on him.

not that i'm speaking from experience or anything... :)

Ayesha said...

Money well spent, if it gets rid of him.

Are you kidding? Christie's LOADED. She married well twice and has a ton of her own money. And I believe her family has money, too. She will never be broke.

brendalove@gmail.com said...

Christie was one of THE top supermodels in her day. LOADED, freakin' loaded.

ms snarky said...

@ zandra -

worse, I hope she's not one of those women who can't see a golddigger when they're dating / marrying one.

(there has to be a better term for a man golddigger. suggestions?)

captivagrl said...

christie made the bulk of her money in real estate, i think that's how she met this assmonkey.

lainiekazan said...

Zandra's right; $2.1M in 2008 dollars will look like peanuts in ten years, while her real estate and other equity holdings will have increased in value multiple times.

Remember he has to pay his legal bills out of this, and now his kids know their "devoted father" gave up his fight for them for peanuts.

His lawyers probably spent most of the last two days advising him that (a) their bill was only going to increase exponentially for every day they're in court and (b)if the P.I.'s testify and have photos and whatnot, the judge will rule against him entirely, he'll get nada and his reputation will be ruined (snort) and, most important (c) he's still gonna owe the lawyers mega bucks.

BTW, last week the NY papers reported he was having his nails done in a fancy upper East Side men's salon while talking on the phone about his case. Delusional much?

beyondseattle said...

Snarky, you have a good point. 2 million is nothing compared to what he was costing her. She also made a fortune in realestate which he said he had helped pick out. somehow i dont think this is the last we will be hearing about money.

lainiekazan said...

I'm hoping the settlement includes an agreement not to contest it and a silence clause as well. Not that he'd have much of anything disgraceful to say about Brinkley, I'm just tired of hearing from and about him.

Besides, he doesn't strike me as the sort who was sensible enough to document his "role" in the real estate purchase process. And I don't recall him doing anything else remotely architectural while he was married to her -- hence, no track record in the field to prove his value to her transactions.

kimi said...

He said yesterday he wished he could go back four years. When asked why, he said, "to be a man". I bet he spends a lot of time wishing coulda woulda shoulda, but he is just upset he got caught.

mngddess said...

Ladies, I realize $2 mil to get rid of him looks like a bargain, but it would KILL me to hand over money to someone who was cheating on me. It's like, "you stabbed me in the back and now I'm gonna pay you???"

I'd rather get a kick-ass lawyer, ask HIM for alimony and child support, and then plaster his face all over billboards on Long Island.

Then I'd feel better.

ms snarky said...

@mngoddess-

I know what you mean, but he's already exposed as a complete skank, so she probably feels some sense of payback. Even though it is a bit of a slap in the face to have to pay him, it's an awful lot easier to write a check (an amount she probably won't feel much pain over, for goodness sake, it's practically lunch money), than it would be if he had gotten more visitation. A cheap amount to be rid of him.

Mooshki said...

Christina - here's the Alexa story. He didn't touch her, but I think anyone would call this abuse.

Reese said...

I'd be annoyed at having to give that cretin 2.1 cents, much less millions, but the blow is someewhat softened by:

1. The IRS is now after Peter for the $300,000 to the bimbo and several business dealings.

2. Realistically speaking, $2.1 million is taxi fare in today's economy.

3. Christie owns 18 properties in the Hamptons; sweet position to be in.

4. I'm sure she enjoyed dragging his dirty laundry out on the media's front lawn and letting every stray dog with a press pass play with it.

kimi said...

Mooski,
I read that on this blog but could not find it anywhere else. Does anyone know the source of this story ? (Alexa and abuse)

Mooshki said...

Kimi, I think it's straight from the trial transcripts. Here's another link.

Robyn said...

The Alexa shower thing was also on kneepads though they took down the original page they reference it here:

ms snarky said...

I also read within the last year or two that he was very mean to Alexa, things like her calling to get a ride home and him telling her to find her own ride or walk, etc. Nice guy. It was in a story about why she moved out of Christie's house. Page 6, I think, but I found a reference to it on Gawker, in a gossip roundup. Not that I read gossip ever.

Judi said...

I'm sure she's just glad he's gone. ITA, Jax.

DetroitRocker said...

I agree this guy is a douche-bag.. But has anyone wondered about why he had to go out and get his thrills somewhere else. I think Christie is a control freak. I read somewhere that she gave Billy Joel a hard time about seeing his daughter, and the other ex-husband also.

Hey she may look sweet and honey in pictures, but a real BITCH to live with. Sounds to me as if she was a cold fish maybe? Hell I don't know, all I know is there is sometimes two sides to the story. Either way it's good that it's over.

I had a girlfriend that made her husband out to be a dirtbag, she was always putting him down. The guy could do nothing right. We all finally figured it out that she was hell to live with. I just think it is strange that you live with this beautiful women, but you have to jack off to a computer screen..and sleep with the first women (child) that gives you attention?

He proably hasn't had sex with her since the last kid was conceived. I think that was about 8 years or more. She didn't care how he got his rocks off, just as long as it didn't come out in the open. Then when he got caught the shit hit the fan. He still is a douche-bag and he should have gotten a divorce before all this came out.

Watch she'll find another guy to walk two steps behind her, and do what she tells him to do for a couple of years. You can't tell me that she has been married three times and she is the innocent person.

As for his step-daughter she proably treated him just like her mom did. Like dirt.

Jerry said...

From Reese...

4. I'm sure she enjoyed dragging his dirty laundry out on the media's front lawn and letting every stray dog with a press pass play with it.

Bingo. Even better, she settled just before it was her turn under the microscope and according to one paper I read, it was a settlement they could easily have done eight months ago.

I felt from the beginning she wanted this to be made public so she could embarrass him in front of the Hampton community.

And now you have to ask why someone so beautiful, famous and wealthy is 0 for 4 in the marriage department. I think the men of America owe her four ex's a big thank you for keeping her off the market for so long. But now we're once again in jeopardy -- watch out guys. Here she comes again.

ms snarky said...

Ah, bitter men. So attractive.

Perhaps, fellas, the situation might be that Christie is just attracted to rats, and she should rethink who she dates and marries. Just like the shrink said on the witness stand, she dates narcissistic men who need constant ego boosting. That quality is perhaps the very reason they chase beautiful women - temporary ego gratification, until that wears off and they have to find a new thrill. Again, certain types of guys can be so very, very attractive.

You shouldn't bash Christie if you don't know her.

Carrie said...

It is amazing how many people want to bash HER.....sad.....he is a skank and a perv....So she has been married a few times, but I am sure it is hard for a woman in her position to find an 'equal' financially, etc. She is reportedly brilliant too and I just think it would be more of a challenge for her. Billy Joel looked good having HER on his arm and I don't think he is that great. She was already wealthy when they met. Peter looked good, probably sounded good on paper and has probably been a perv that got away with it for a long time. Thankfully, she put it out in the open for the next dumb female to try to ignore. The next woman that he hooks up with will just be plain stupid to even bother and yet some dumb ho will go for it. UGG... now THAT is the real tragedy.

bionic bunny! said...

wow. i can't believe all the christie bashing. is anybody here old enough to remember how crazy in love billy joel was with her?
i felt bad for both of them when they split. she and alexa went to so many of his concerts, wasn't he one of the first american artists to be allowed to russia (sorry, the soviet union at the time) to perform there?
my facts may not be 100%. i don't believe christie's at any fault her, so, WTF?
this guy is obviously a pervert. let him be outed as one, even if she's not an angel.

and who are we to judge, anyway??
oh, yeah. we're CDAN posters. i lost track for a minute!:)
