Washington, July 4 : With Christie Brinkley's divorce trial from Peter Cook getting increasingly ugly, the American supermodel has made peace with her love rat hubby's former teen mistress, insisting that she feels really bad for her.
After the first trial in New York, Brinkley told reporters she wanted to let Diana Bianchi, 21, know that she forgives her.
"I'd just like to say after two days of testimony that I can't help but think about Diana Bianchi, and I want her and her family to know that I feel really badly for them," People quoted Brinkley, as telling.
"I feel bad for her and I forgive her completely. She was manipulated," she added.
According to a source, on July 2, Bianchi approached Brinkley's daughter Alexa Joel, 20, outside the courtroom and apologized.
"Diana said, 'I am sorry for the pain I have caused you and your family'. Alexa then hugged her and said, 'We have all been through a lot,'" the source said.
