Check out “Extra’s” Then and Now gallery, featuring some of the world’s top supermodels, including Heidi Klum, Christie Brinkley and Carol Alt.
Just one day after Christie Brinkley's tearful "Today" show plea of "just wanting peace" with ex-husband Peter Cook, he appeared on the show and said, "The entire content of her interview was a lie, where she claims I am harassing her and bullying her on a daily basis."
Brinkley's angry ex showed no sympathy for Christie's "crocodile tears" and explained she is "on a campaign to smear me. There is no Peter Cook press machine. I have no interest in the press. I'm not a celebrity. You don't hear about Peter Cook until Christie Brinkley dredges something up from the past to make herself relevant in the media again."
An emotional Christie Brinkley teared-up as she told "Today's" Matt Lauer that she "just wants peace" in the bitter divorce battle with ex-husband Peter Cook.
The Broadway star was quizzed by Lauer about the ongoing animosity with her ex, and pointed out the couple split over four years ago. Lauer said, "Some might turn the other cheek," to which Christie replied, "I have turned the other cheek."
Supermodel Christie Brinkley's ex-husband, Peter Cook, appeared in an "ABC News" interview that aired Wednesday, in which he claimed Brinkley's recent comments to the press about their failed marriage were hurting their kids and harming his reputation.
Cook, an architect, cheated on Christie with an 18-year-old before they split in 2008. Last week, both sides began releasing ugly statements about the other, and Brinkley claimed her ex was sending offensive emails and not paying child support.
"Extra" correspondent AJ Calloway hit the Great White Way to celebrate the 2011 Tony Awards -- and to ask stars about hot topics such as Rep. Anthony Weiner's troubles, and Alec Baldwin's possible NYC mayor run.
"I like it," Tony Award nominee Al Pacino said about Baldwin running for mayor. "But I thought I'd run," the actor laughed, adding, "Maybe I'm a little old for the part."
"Extra" is counting down five good reasons why Regis Philbin, who announced he would be retiring from "Live with Regis and Kelly" this November, should stay on the show -- with a little help from our celebrity friends.
#5: There will be millions of weeping women, like "Gossip Girl" star Kelly Rutherford. "Regis, you can't go! So many women will be crying."
#4: Sleep is over-rated, although Christie Brinkley understands. "He probably wants to sleep in. I don't blame him, but he can't remove himself altogether!"
#3: You won't find a prettier co-host -- sorry Larry King. "Me and Regis do something together... it's a good idea," says King.
#2: It's a good idea for Regis to stay on "Live" or risk... The Situation, as in "Jersey Shore" star Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, who says, "We kinda want one more season."
And the No. 1 reason Regis shouldn't leave? Howie Mandel can't handle it. "You're going to kill me if you quit. I can't live without you every morning."
"Extra" wants to know the reason YOU don't want Regis to go! Leave it in the comments below.
