Long before he ruined her life by browsing swinger sites and boffing Diana Bianchi, Peter Cook was the perfect husband in Christie Brinkley's eyes.

Yes, that's really them. As hard as it is to imagine Christie Brinkley and Peter Cook smiling and in the same place after what he did, it sounds like he kept most of his shadiness secret from her since they tied the knot in 1996.
Now, thanks to their public divorce trial, his seedy ways are being exposed, however. What a mess. We feel bad for Christie Brinkley, the scorned wife, but it's kinda sorta fun to watch the train wreck that is her estranged husband.
