    Default Court appointed psychiatrist calls Peter Cook a narcissist

    Well it looks like the psychiatrist did a fine job and nailed them both for their weaknesses. Wonder if she still believes having this all made public is in the best interest of her children??

    Christie Brinkley's Husband Is a 'Narcissist,' Says Doctor

    Day four of the Christie Brinkley-Peter Cook divorce trial began with more drama Tuesday when a court-appointed psychiatrist testified that Cook is a "narcissist" and recommended that Brinkley be awarded sole custody of the children.

    Dr. Stephen Herman, a Manhattan psychiatrist who examined the divorcing couple and their children, confirmed that he wrote in his assessment of the family that Cook's personality demands constant reassurance.

    "While most people need some 'feeding' of their egos, Mr. Cook has an insatiable appetite," he said in his report, as read aloud by one of Brinkley's attorneys, Howard Roy.

    Herman also answered "yes" when asked whether Cook's affair with Diana Bianchi reflected "colossally bad judgment," testifying that getting involved with her was a "major mistake and the beginning of the end of the family."

    The psychiatrist also confirmed that Cook told him he had approximately 35 sexual partners in his lifetime, and that he was unaware of Cook's current girlfriend, Suzanne Shaw. He said exposing the children to a new girlfriend at this time shows more "bad judgment."

    Under cross-examination, Herman testified that even though he believes Brinkley should received sole custody of their children, she should also include Cook in their lives and recommended that the supermodel seek therapy if she's not getting it already.

    "I think she needs an outlet for her anger and feeling of betrayal," he said. Additionally, therapy could help her examine the "choices of male figures to be involved with," said Herman.

    Still, Herman determined both Brinkley and Cook to be "superb parents," confirming that he wrote in his report, "despite what happened, the children love their father and have a close bond with him."

    Although Herman repeatedly said Brinkley should be the primary parent, he did admit that some of her past behavior might not be the best example for her children. "One could raise her four marriages as not being a good model for her daughter to emulate," he said.

    But Brinkley looked confident on her way into court Tuesday morning smiling and dressed in a powder blue knee-length dress and tan cardigan.

    Responding to questions about how her children are doing, she said, "They're great. They are away at camp and they're enjoying themselves."

    Ego-Monsters are very good a hooking women. They go about it as if their life depends upon getting her. Out of their own necessity, they learn to talk the talk better than other men and they will do and say anything to make her fall in love with him-that love and adoration is what they need to feed on and it can suck the life out of a woman. Just ask my sister.

    Oh yeah, I had him figured to be narcissist from the get go. But then again Christy had me wondering too. I hope she can stay on her own for awhile & get her man thing figured out.

    That's a real mess. He was spending 3000 a month on Internet porn, in addition to dropping a bundle on his teen aged mistress. He did buy Brinkley a $30 bouquet of flowers for Mother's Day, but he charged it to her account.

    BTW anyone hear that story about him getting busted for drug trafficking, back when he was 18? He wound up selling coke to an off duty cop in a public washroom. A good friend of his family, an archbishop, wrote the judge a letter vouching for Cook's character, and the whole thing was dropped. The kicker is that the public restroom was outside a service station, I believe on a NJ or NY highway, that was a well known hook up spot for gay men to meet hustlers.

    Or me. Been there, done that, and I am so glad to be rid of the life-sucking leech. And therapy is a must!

    Brinkley Regrets Marriage

    By WENN, July 9 2008
    Supermodel CHRISTIE BRINKLEY insists she would never have married PETER COOK if she had known the truth about his one-time felony drug arrest.
    In divorce court on Tuesday (08Jul08), Brinkley revealed she regretted marrying the love cheat architect while she was being cross-examined by Cook's lawyer.
    The clean-living model explained that her estranged husband had lied to her about his drug arrest a week before they wed, but, if she had known the truth, she would have thought twice about exchanging vows with him.
    She told the court, "If I heard the facts as I know today, I don't think I would have gone forward with the marriage."

    She is but I don't find his kind of looks handsome, maybe I just don't trust "handsome" men....

    hehe! Yes, but I think my ex is blaming his 4 marriages on to the women and not his choice (did I mention that he's on no 4 @ 40.. Christie is at least 50! LOL!)

    I fully understand that she is hurt and angry. I understand she regrets marrying him. Still, I lost a ton of respect once I found she was the one who wanted the court proceedings open to the public. Sure she wants to humiliate him but she is making herself look like a total ass too and she is certainly not thinking about her children at all.
