Christie Brinkley: Marriage is Ridiculous
Here is another candidate for George Clooney’s consideration – former supermodel Christie Brinkley.
The 57-year old beauty has joined the ranks of Charlize Theron and the many others out there who have sworn never ever to get married.
But unlike Theron, Christie has braved walking down the perennial aisle.
As a matter of fact she did it four times and it was on the fourth time that she made up her mind to swear never to get married again — which was not at all surprising considering the humiliation she went through with husband number four, Peter Cook.
Her marriage with Cook must have traumatized her so deeply that the former supermodel said she will never tie the knot again as she finds the institution “ridiculous”.
Christie, who has three children from her four marriages, insisted that her bitter divorce from Cook in 2008 has made her marriage-averse. “I can now say unequivocally I would never get married again. There’s absolutely no reason to. I learnt in my divorce that marriage is ridiculous. You take a vow but you don’t get brownie points when you honor your vow and the other person doesn’t.”
She laments, “The court doesn’t recognize that. It’s like, ‘All right now, let’s see how we’re going to divvy up the kids.’ Well, obviously, the one that didn’t break the vows should be the role model, but no.’”Get free updates directly to your e-mail from Showbiz Renegade.
