Three months after their public divorce was settled, Christie Brinkley's ex-husband Peter Cook is talking. "I'm not the ... pervert that I've been painted to be," Cook tells Barbara Walters in an interview airing Friday on ABC's 20/20. Cook, 49, who admitted to having an affair with an 18 year-old assistant and an online pornography habit, tells Walters, "The misinformation that came out during the trial is the elephant in the room. It's the elephant in the room for my kids." According to Cooke, during the marriage, he says, "I wanted a little acknowledgment, a little attention, a little thank you every now and then for my efforts, for the amount of time I 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."
