Peter Cook Spotted Still Wearing Wedding Band
July 24, 2006

Brooke Shields is breaking her silence, rallying around her friend Christie Brinkley.

We caught up with the gorgeous Shields with her daughter Rowan in tow at the Mercedes-Benz Polo Classic. Brooke told us she hasn't talked to Christie since the scandal broke.

"She's been a friend of mine for years," Shields said. "My thoughts and prayers are with her."

Meanwhile, Peter Cook finally emerged from hiding for the first time since his marital meltdown exploded onto the front pages.

Photographers caught Peter, who was still wearing his wedding ring, outside his parents' home in Long Island over the weekend.

There is also more stunning news breaking about Cook's past. The New York Post reports the alleged serial teen romancer was once busted for dealing drugs.

"Extra" obtained the mug shot taken after a then 23-year-old Cook was arrested for selling a gram of cocaine to an undercover cop in 1982. He then spent two months in jail.

Even model Janice Dickinson is weighing in on the salacious headlines. "All I can say is that my heart goes out to Christie and her family," Dickinson said. "How dare he, that's all I can say."

Stay tuned as the Brinkley/ Cook soap opera continues to heat up.
