Seemingly unfazed at being ousted from the Asian Athletics Association, scam-tainted Suresh Kalmadi on Monday said losing the presidential re-election bid to Qatar’s Dahlan Jumaan Al-Hamad has actually given him a chance to work at the “grassroots” level.
“I have no issues today and I congratulate Mr Al-Hamad for being elected as President. I am rather relieved that I will be able to work at the grassroots level in athletics,” Mr. Kalmadi said after losing the vote during the ongoing AAA Congress in Pune.

Christie Brinkley slams ex-hubby for bitter divorce

Christie Brinkley slams ex-hubby for bitter divorceLondon -  Christie Brinkley, who appeared on the ‘Today Show’ to talk about her return to Broadway’s Chicago next week, broke down in tears as she poured her heart out while saying that she just wanted peace for her family.

In the last month, there has been a consistent media storm surrounding her and her estranged husband Peter Cook, with whom she was married for 12 years.

The media storm started when the model told a judge that Cook was sending her rude emails and had not been keeping up with child maintenance payments.

The architect then went on damage control, appearing on a number of talk shows to slam his ex-wife, branding her a liar and a “narcissistic egomaniac”.

He recently accused her of “throwing her family under a bus” and “running a media circus” to promote her Broadway show.

“Since the day he realized I wasn't coming back there has been a character assassination,” the Daily Mail quoted Brinkley as saying.

“I asked for a confidentiality agreement and got it. I alone have maintained that. I had a lot of offers to come on TV and talk about it and I didn’t want to do it.

“I have turned the other cheek. There is not one quote from me anywhere. This is the first time I’ve been on a show and I’m really here to talk about Chicago.

“But I have endured weeks of lies and character assassination and a media storm. I have never taken part in name calling. The only thing I ever said at the end of the second trial was ‘Google “divorcing a narcissist”.

“I’m not alone. I’ve gotten hundreds of letters from women who are going through this. It’s not easy,” she said.

Cook denied claims that he owes the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue model child maintenance and said he pays double of what is required by courts.

However, she revealed on the ‘Today Show’ that he pays 600 dollars a month for each of their children, which she calls “a very minimal amount of money”.

“It wasn’t about the money. I have hesitated to do anything with the court because he actually likes the publicity and he likes going to court,” she added.
