Quoted: Kathie Lee Gifford on Christie Brinkley’s TV tears

“I pray [for] the best for them as a family — but for goodness sake, the best thing you can do is keep your mouth shut.”

Kathie Lee Gifford on “Today” Tuesday, after supermodel Christie Brinkley came on the show and wept on camera about how beastly her ex-husband Peter Cook has been. As a fellow veteran of tabloid-covered marital woes, Gifford prescribed a stiff upper lip: “When you’re in the bubble like that you think that’s all anyone’s talking about. You know what? They’re not.” (see video. . . )
