Diana Bianchi, the young woman in the middle of the Christie Brinkley/ Peter Cook split scandal, will testify in divorce court, THEINSIDER.COM has learned.

Bianchi's attorney tells THEINSIDER.COM today, "She is looking to move forward in her life and regain her anonymity. She has not pursued a career in music by her own choice. That choice has nothing to do with Christie Brinkley or Peter Cook. She wants the media to respect her privacy."


"Extra" caught up with supermodel Christie Brinkley at the Heart of the Hamptons Celebrating the American Heart Association event. Brinkley spoke about her highly publicized divorce proceedings against ex Peter Cook declaring, "I'm very grateful for the public support. I really am."

Brinkley added, "Throughout this whole thing, my children have been my primary concern."

Brinkley filed for divorce from Cook in 2006 after 10 years of marriage after a cheating scandal involving Cook and 18-year-old Diana Bianchi.
