A scorned Christie Brinkley met with her estranged husband on Tuesday, the New York Daily News reports.
“I’d rather not comment,” Brinkley, 52, told the paper as she left her $22 million estate on Long Island’s Hamptons after the visit from her husband, Peter Cook, and his parents. “I just don’t want to fuel this anymore.”
Although Cook has been photographed recently wearing his wedding ring, Brinkley was not wearing hers on Tuesday. The appearance marks Brinkley’s return to the region, where the couple lived until Brinkley discovered Cook’s year-long affair with Diana Bianchi, 19, whom he’d hired as an assistant at his architecture firm.
Apologetic as Cook might be, the Gossip remains perplexed that anyone would be dumb enough to cheat on Christie Freaking Brinkley with an 18-year-old girl, and is delusional enough to think he won’t be outed eventually. The man clearly has a screw or several dozen loose.
In any case, after Brinkley’s July 12 announcement that she was separating from Cook, her husband of 10 years, the devastated supermodel relocated to Los Angeles with the couple’s children, Jack, 11, and Sailor, 8. She has been staying with her parents there and has kept an extremely low profile.
Cook has publicly issued an apology for his infidelity through his lawyer, but arrived at about 1:30 p.m. Tuesday to do so in person at the gated home he shared with Brinkley. He is said to want a reconciliation with her if at all possible, and brought along his elderly parents, Harry and Jean, who were driven in a town car from their Long Island home.
After a 15-minute visit, Brinkley led the caravan out of the estate in her tan Lexus SUV, but did not comment on what had transpired.
An hour later, Brinkley returned to the house with 20-year-old daughter Alexa Ray Joel (whose father is Brinkley’s ex-husband, Billy Joel). Showing she’s still upbeat about life, when pulling into her driveway, Brinkley paused and handed the Daily News photographer a box of Popsicles.
“Here, this is a little gift for you. I want you to take this,” she said. “It’s very, very hot out.”
