A few month’s back Christie Brinkley and Peter Cook played out their messy divorce battle in front of the world. The model left her husband because he had an affair with his 18 year old assistant. Now Cook is looking to clear up our misconceptions about his tarnished image and clue us in on why this happened.

Peter sat down with Barbara Walters to set the record straight and the interview will air this Friday on ABC’s 20/20. Peter, who readily admitted to the affair, said that there was a lot of “misinformation in the courtroom.”

Giving Barbara a little insight into his married life with Christie, he said:

“I wanted a little acknowledgment, a little attention, a little thank you every now and then for my efforts, for the amount of time it took to care for her and my family, for the wealth I was building. Just the tremendous amount of work I was putting into my family….my world became her world. It had to be that way.”

Is he kidding with a statement like that? He wanted to be showered with thank you’s – and so does every other married person in America. That constant feedback just doesn’t happen in the average marriage – at least not with the kind of regularity that he seems to have been craving. It is more likely that this guy needed to be the center of the universe and picked the teenager to puff up his ego.

Brinkley’s attorney said he may face legal action for speaking out about the divorce and breaking the confidentiality agreement.

Check out Barbara WaWa on Friday to see what else the joker has to say. From the show promos, about the only thing that he cleared up for us is that he really is a loser.
