Peter Cook Tells Barbara Walters He's Not A Pervert

It's only been three months since Christie Brinkley and Peter Cook finalized their divorce and he's already signing like a canary. So much for keeping things private.

Christie's lying and cheating ex-husband is hoping to garner some sympathy now that he's been painted poorly by the general media.

Peter, 49, had a little chat with Barbara Walters for ABC's 20/20 and here's a little excerpt of what he had to say.

"I'm not the pervert that I've been painted to be. The misinformation that came out during the trial is the elephant in the room. It's the elephant in the room for my kids."

Is he referring to the stuffed elephant, among other toys, that he gave his former assistant/teenage lover Diana Bianchi during their time together? Christie, 54, is now threatening legal action against Peter for violating the gag order in the case. Check out Barbara’s exclusive interview with Peter this Friday night on 20/20.
