We all remember the playground bullies from childhood. Mean and calculated– unrelenting and remorseless. They seem to thrive on wounding others. An adult version of the playground bully is Peter Cook, also known as the poster child for extreme narcissism.
The fact that this man is an actual diagnosed, malignant narcissist and that he is getting away with dragging Christie Brinkley through the court system baffles me. It is a waste of tax-payers dollars, Ms. Brinkley’s time and the court’s time. Peter Cook wants direct access to Christie Brinkley and uses co-parenting as an excuse to have contact. He doesn’t want access to allow him to co-parent; he wants access so that he can continue to victimize her.
There is no such thing as co-parenting when you are dealing with a Narcissist. A Narcissist is like a 6-year old child with mental health problems. The courts would not expect you to co-parent with a 6-year old so why would they expect you to co-parent with a Narcissist like Peter Cook?
My X has a new girlfriend and I have been told that she knows about my blog. I am perplexed by the mere thought of that. I know how charming and manipulative that he can be but to have inside information about what your future holds would cause me to run screaming from the situation. That brings me to Peter Cook and his new wife, Suzanne Shaw. Suzanne Shaw is holding a crystal ball into what her future divorce will hold. Maybe he has her convinced that Narcissistic Personality Disorder will make him a better husband—just like he tried to convince Matt Lauer that it makes him a better father?
Our courts need to begin taking these issues seriously. There needs to be ongoing education for Judges, Commissioners and attorneys. Change needs to happen- I encourage you to write to your representatives and let your voice be heard.
