Christie Brinkley has ended months of speculation over whether she would take back her cheating husband, Peter Cook. Two months ago stories surfaced about Cook's relationship with a much younger woman. Brinkley has stayed above the fray, not discussing her situation in public and has made an all-out effort to save the marriage with Cook coming to their Hamptons estate several times in the last 8 weeks. Divorce paperwork was filed today in Suffolk County, New York. The couple has an eight-year-old daughter, Sailor. Brinkley and Cook were married in 1996 after her break-up with land developer Richard Tauban. Tauban and Brinkley's child, Jack, 11, was adopted by Cook when they married in '96 and there was no word of Jack's fate within the divorce proceedings to come. Brinkley has been in good spirits, says friends, and her jovial demeanor was appreciated by the New York press who camped outside her home this past summer. The public opinion seems to be with the model as Cook joins a long list of men who have been unfaithful to their model-actress significant others. From Halle Balle (David Justice and Eric Benet) to Ally Landry (Mario Lopez), this is not a new phenomenon, just a sad trend for women who seem to have it all.
