Brinkley Divorces Her Dress, Earns Back Her Pride

Supermodel Christie Brinkley has auctioned off her Armani wedding dress which she wore for her 1996 wedding to businessman Peter Cook. The couple split after Brinkley claimed Cook was addicted to porn and had an affair with his underage assistant in 2004.

In a statement to Radar Online, Cook took stabs at his former wife and wondered why anyone would want to buy a wedding dress from someone who’s been so unlucky in love:

“Why would anyone want to buy a wedding dress from someone who has failed at marriage four times? That would be like choosing the 1976 winless Tampa Bay Bucaneeers as your ultimate fantasy football team. That would be like taking investment tips from Bernie Madoff! I suggest that anyone who buys that dress and wants to have a happy marriage, burn it immediately!”

Fighting words, Cook.

The online auction — held by, an organization that holds celebrity auctions and donates the proceeds to charity — was won by a woman named Gina last Thursday for $775.

What do you think of that, Mr. Armani? Brinkley’s auction, which included an array of other accessories and clothing, benefited the American Red Cross’s Haitian Relief work and hopefully her self-respect.
