Christie Brinkley was back on the stand Monday for a tearful day three in her divorce and custody case.
Resuming testimony that began Thursday, the 54-year-old Uptown Girl played up her mothering credentials to the Long Island court, portraying herself as a much better caretaker for her kids than estranged husband Peter Cook, who admitted to having an affair with an 18-year-old staffer and a $3,000-a-month online porn habit during their marriage.
"The role of family to me is the most important thing," Brinkley told the court, while choking back sobs.
"I'm sorry I'm crying right now, but the only thing I've ever wanted was a big happy family."
