Christie Brinkley's Divorce Trial Gets Under Way
New York Post ^ | July 2, 2008 | Selim Algar and Chuck Bennett

Posted on 07/02/2008 1:43:30 PM PDT by Cecily

Yuck. I don't want to excerpt the whole sentence.

The kids they are fighting over are 13 and 10, and one of them is not even Cook's biological son. Aren't the kids old enough to decide with whom they want to live, and if they even want to visit the other parent?

Why are we cluttering up a great place like FreeRepublic with nonsense like this?

It would be nice if those who are not interested in the General/Chat threads would refrain from clicking on them when the subject matter is clearly stated just to waste the bandwith to tell everyone they aren’t interested in the story. Is that too much to ask?

If you are going to post NYP tabloid stuff, why not pst the stuff about A-Rod being Madge’s new bat boy?

Just saying, if it’s not interesting to you don’t click on it. 90% of the thread on FR don’t interest me, so I don’t click on them. It’s really not that tough, if you don’t care don’t click, because one thing you can absolutely guarantee with 100% accuracy is that not one single person that does care about the topic cares if you care.

Who cares?
The kids are big, who do they want to live with?

It’s always the woman going after the man and trying to convince him he’s done something wrong.

If Christie were able to keep a husband happy, she wouldn’t have to keep on finding new ones.

You’re going to catch it for that comment, but not from me.

There is something funny about so many women initiating divorce and claiming “he was an alcoholic,” etc, but not acknowledging their own mistakes.

Ok, that outfit, that..string looks damn uncomfortable. It looks like it’s squishing up her backside and cutting her crack. Makes her butt looks weird.

Now, I think men in their 50s are incredibly handsome and sexy. But when I was 18, a 49 year old would have been...YUCK. Like my dad, or one of his friends. Gross. I can pretty well imagine that Little Miss 18 Year Old was in it for what she could get and not because it was some torrid love affair for her. The thought of Christie Brinkley’s husband cheating for her probably made her all giddy. Peter Cook is the big dummy here.

What do you mean about 'nonsense' and 'who cares'?

She's HOT! HOT erases all sins perceived and actual. And all the guys here want to post the obligatory "I'd hit it" graphics, butt floss swimsuit pics and pronounce her NOT GUILTY.

She used to be gorgeous. Now she looks like a chipmunk with pulled eyes.

Four husbands, three kids with three different dads. Her judgment apparently is no better than your typical ghetto baby mama.

I just heard that Alex Rodriguez’s Wife left him for Singer - Lenny Kravitz!!!!!!! Alex was tripped up and play out. The raves about Christie’s looks, over a decade ago, when I worked in Lower Manhattan, I am walking along West Broadway and I see Peter Cook, entering a limo - he was drop dead gorgeous./Just Asking - seoul62......

Looks like the posting police are out in full force this morning. I’ll never understand why some people will go to the trouble to click on a thread only to say that they don’t care anything about it. Does it make them feel somehow superior to the other people who want some mindless entertainment for a few minutes? (the comments on this kind of thread are usually hilarious) If we don’t think exactly how they think about the topics in general/chat are we somehow inferior?

Silly me, I thought the General/Chat category was created for the tabloid/news of the weird stories. I can mock BO and his wife Aunt Esther, or complain about McQueeg and other RINOs only so many times a day. :)

Billy Joel to his first wife: Honey, I love you just the way you are..uh...I’m leaving you for another woman.

Wife: Who is she?

Billy Joel: Christy Brinkley.

Wife: THE Christy Brinkley, the model?

Billy Joel: Yes, her.

Wife: I can see that.....

I prefer a "mere" woman. With females like Christy, men are a dime a dozen and always trying to win her attention. I went out with one beauty queen...she wasn't happy unless she was getting attention from other people. I think she was dating my car...not me. lol

That’s funny! I dated a guy (ONCE!) whose identity was his Porche. It was all he talked about...and guess where we went? The drive in!!!

I love drive-ins. I miss drive-ins. BUT, with this guy, it was comical. AND...I met him at church. OY!
