CENTRAL ISLIP, N.Y. (AP) — Christy Brinkley's Long Island divorce trial has been put on hold — and the model says she's praying for a settlement.

Lawyers declined to comment on the record Wednesday.

However, Brinkley was asked while leaving the courthouse if a settlement is 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 has been custody of their children, ages 10 and 13. The dispute also includes properties Cook helped Brinkley buy in the Hamptons.
