Brinkley, Cook cutting a deal?

Christie Brinkley's Long Island divorce trial has resumed. The trial had been put on hold Wednesday afternoon, but testimony resumed later. Lawyers declined to comment.

But when Brinkley was asked while leaving the courthouse if a settlement was in the works, she pressed her palms together as in prayer, and replied: "It's what I hope and pray for."

The former Sports Illustrated model was married to architect Peter Cook for a decade before his affair with a teenager vaulted their troubles into the public light in 2006.

The trial has focused on the affair and Cook's online sex activities. He has apologized for both.

The primary issue is over the custody of their children, and properties Cook helped Brinkley buy in the Hamptons.
