Can Christie Brinkley’s Public Trial Help Her Get Revenge on a Cheating Mate?

christie brinkleyAn infidelity expert discusses why betrayed wives like Christie Brinkley might use a public divorce trial as a way of getting revenge on a cheating spouse.

NEW YORK (RUSHPRNEWS) July 2, 2008 — Christie Brinkley’s upcoming divorce trial has caused much speculation about whether or not Christie is using the public trial to get revenge on her cheating husband, Peter Cook. The divorce hearing, which begins tomorrow, was initiated by Christie Brinkley in 2006, after learning of Cook’s extramarital affair with his then 18-year-old office assistant Diana Bianchi.

According to one infidelity expert, this may be the latest wrinkle in getting even with a cheating mate.

Is Christie Out for Revenge?

Cook’s attorney, Norman Sheresky, insists that Christie’s request for a public trial was motivated by revenge. He says she’s only interested in paying Cook back for cheating on her.

An unnamed source claims that Christie is still “spitting mad” at her soon-to-be ex.

Christie’s attorney, Robert S. Cohen, however, has hinted that other factors may be involved. He says that having the divorce hearing open to the public is the only way to restore Christie’s reputation and present the unfiltered truth.

Is Christie Justified in Wanting to Get Revenge?

“It’s a natural urge for an infidelity victim to want to seek revenge on a cheating spouse,” says Infidelity expert Ruth Houston, founder of and author of Is He Cheating on You? – 829 Telltale Signs. “After the initial shock and disbelief of the infidelity wear off, the hurt and anger that follow are accompanied by a desire to get revenge.”

If the news reports are true, Christie may have valid reasons for wanting to get revenge. What wife wouldn’t feel angry and vindictive towards a husband who lured a teenager away from her job as a toy store clerk, hired her to be his office assistant, seduced her into having a long-term affair with him, then paid her $300,000 to keep quiet after the affair was exposed?

Says Houston, “If Christie Brinkley is seeking revenge, she won’t be the first betrayed wife to do so — and she certainly won’t be the last. Christie may feel that since her husband made a spectacle of her by cheating on her with a teenager less than half his age, she’s justified in making a spectacle of him in a public trial.”

A Unique Way for Betrayed Wives to Get Revenge

Houston, a New York infidelity expert who is frequently called on by the media to comment on celebrity infidelity and popular infidelity issues in the news, says, “To Christie’s credit, if she is using a public trial as a means of getting even with Peter Cook, at least she’s chosen a legal way to get revenge. Many infidelity victims resort to violent, destructive, or illegal means of getting even with a cheating mate. “

Houston continues, “Like most wives, Christie Brinkley was probably privy to her husband’s deepest, darkest secrets. As such, she is in a unique position to get revenge by exposing his secrets in a public trial.”

According to Brinkley’s attorney, Cook’s infidelity is just the tip of the iceberg. Apparently, Christie’s philandering husband has quite a bit of dirty laundry that he doesn’t want his wife to air. In addition to stories about his womanizing, there have been rumors about Cook trolling porn sites on the internet, and logging on to swinger’s sites in search of women for three-way sex.

A Warning to Cheating Husbands Everywhere

Once a victim of infidelity herself, Houston, issues the following warning to cheating husbands everywhere:

“Remember that old saying about infidelity and extramarital affairs – ‘You have to pay to play.’ Payment isn’t always calculated in dollars and cents. There are legal ways a betrayed wife can make a cheating husband pay for breaking her heart – including a messy public trial.”
