New Alleged Peter Cook Mistress Comes Forward
July 19, 2006

The soap opera-like divorce scandal involving Christie Brinkley and Peter Cook has gotten even more salacious, as a second buxom beauty enters the picture.

Singer Samantha Cole has come forward in The New York Post, claiming she also once had an affair with Cook.

Cole claims that just like Cook's alleged new teen lover, Diana Bianchi, she too met Peter when she was 18. She also became his assistant, and then had a year-long fling with him 10 years ago. Cole says Cook even proposed to her.

"Extra" has tried repeatedly to reach Peter and Christie for comment on these accusations, but they have not returned our calls.

Meanwhile, 19-year-old Bianchi, who is at the center of the Brinkley bust-up, continues to make startling confessions in an exclusive interview with FOX 5 News' Rosanna Scotto in New York.

Now new information has surfaced as a young man claims Diana was his high school sweetheart at the time she was having her alleged fling with Cook.

Brinkley's mom is reportedly calling her soon-to-be former son-in-law a no good S.O.B.

In its new issue out Friday, People magazine speculates why a successful architect with a Christie as his wife and a beautiful family may have strayed. "Peter had long chafed at the idea of being Mr. Brinkley," People's Galina Espinoza reported.

The magazine also dishes how the couple's $60 million in real estate alone will be divvied up.

"In New York State if there's no pre-nup, it would be divided evenly," Espinoza told us.
