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 Tuesday 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 loves his children." The couple, who were married in 1996, have an 8-year-old daughter, Sailor. Cook adopted Brinkley's son, Jack, now 11, from her marriage to Richard Taubman. Brinkley's publicist, Elliot Mintz, told The Associated Press early Tuesday that he didn't believe she would issue a response.

The couple's separation exploded in scandal earlier this month when Diana Bianchi, now 19, claimed Cook had seduced her shortly after hiring her to work at his architecture firm. Her lawyer, Joseph Tacopina, described the relationship as consensual, but claimed Cook's role as employer and his gifts of a car, money and jewelry could possibly constitute sexual harassment.

According to the report, Sheresky said Cook would respect Brinkley's wishes, whatever the result. "He hopes there's no divorce. IF she wants one, and he certainly hopes this doesn't happen, but IF - it will not be nasty," Sheresky said, according to the Post. "She can have whatever she wants."

It seems as if Christie's daughter will support the divorce if it happens:

Christie Brinkley's daughter, Alexa Joel, won't be sorry if her mother doesn't bite at Peter Cook's "take me back" plea reported by Cindy Adams yesterday.

Hamptons sources say Cook, Brinkley's fourth husband, wasn't exactly a doting stepfather to the 20-year-old fledgling musician. "He's been very cold and mean to her," one insider told The Post's Braden Keil. "It's the main reason why she moved out when she was just 17." Their last argument occurred when Brinkley and Billy Joel's daughter, who didn't drive, called the Bridgehampton manse for a lift home at 11 p.m.

Cook allegedly refused, told her to "walk home" and "never call this house at this time of night again." Alexa has been living in Manhattan ever since.

You Said

He's an asshole who got caught and is now "sorry". Oh, and 10 years, is not a lifetime...well, maybe in celebrity years.

Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and all. However imagine if you added some great graphics or videos to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this blog could certainly be one of the very best in its niche. Terrific blog!
