This has to be a laugh, not excusing apparent indiscretions within the marriage and the viewing of pornography by an adult but Christie Brinkley has settled her divorce proceedings with husband Peter Cooke to the tune of $2.5 million with visiting rights to their children. We may not agree with his extra marital affairs or internet activities but the former "Uptown Girl" must surely have some power and wields it well over the men in her life. Miss Brinkley may be beautiful and come across as all sweetness but was only too quick to get on the witness stand , invite the media to the courtroom circus of her divorce proceedings. Really, who is she kidding, to air her dirty laundry and attempt to shame her husband in public wasn't to protect the children from the grubby goings on but to ensure she got out of it all smelling sweeter than roses. He gets a $2 million payout and she gets to keep all 18 properties and full custody of the children.
"I didn't want this trial. It's humiliating for all of us," Brinkley had said on the witness stand in New York family court in Central Islip, Long Island.
Sure she did, Christie Brinkley knew exactly what she was doing when this all went ahead. Says a lot for her, being married four times and now divorced four times. Peter Cooke may look like an ass in the public's eye but what did Brinkley do that got her to the divorce courts four times?
