The Christie Brinkley-Peter Cook meltdown just keeps getting more creepily prurient. Now another woman, 29-year-old singer Samantha Cole, has come forward to claim that Cook, 47, seduced her when she was 19. Speaking to the New York Post, Cole said Cook proposed marriage to her in '96 - just one month before he and Brinkley got engaged. Like Diana Bianchi, the 19-year-old would-be singer who this week said she had a recent affair with Cook, Cole is a Southampton, N.Y., native and aspiring singer.

PHILADELPHIA rapper Meek Mill has a busy summer planned: He'll be recording an album in New York, performing in the Dominican Republic and making stops in Miami, Atlanta and Baltimore. But by Aug. 4, he had better have completed etiquette classes, a Philadelphia judge warned the rapper yesterday. Meek Mill - legally known as Robert Williams - is in need of the classes based on how he speaks in court, how he acts outside of court and things he has posted on social-media sites, Common Pleas Judge Genece Brinkley said during a probation status hearing.

THE UP-AND-COMING North Philadelphia rapper known as Meek Mill and his entourage got a rap session Monday from a judge who refused to allow him to travel outside the city over the next 30 days for paying gigs. The ruling by Common Pleas Judge Genece Brinkley means that Mill - who was born Robert Williams - will miss a concert in St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands. He previously had to cancel a tour of Africa, costing him $215,000, defense attorney Gary Silver said during a nearly two-hour motion hearing at the city's Criminal Justice Center.

Philadelphia Common Pleas Court Judge Genece E. Brinkley this week ordered Traci Ann Turoski, a court reporter, to sit in a basement holding cell at the Criminal Justice Center and type transcripts she owed Brinkley and another judge. What did Turoski, 41, of Ridley Park, do to deserve that? For months, court records show, she repeatedly failed to deliver transcripts the judge requested. The first request was made in April. In July, Brinkley ordered Turoski to produce the transcripts.

FBI agents and police conducted a house-to-house search yesterday in Brinkley, Ark., for two men wanted in the Thanksgiving Eve kidnapping of a Philadelphia woman and the rape of a New Castle, Pa., woman. Police Chief Fred Campbell of Brinkley, which is 70 miles east of Little Rock, said John Henretta, 45, and Michael Goodhart, 23, were considered armed and dangerous. Campbell said the men and a Brinkley woman were involved in an accident about midnight Thursday. The FBI in Philadelphia issued an arrest warrant for Henretta and Goodhart after Linda Donato, 35, was abducted at knife point by two men in Ardmore on Nov. 23, about 5:30 p.m. An FBI spokesman said Donato was slashed on the hand and wrestled to the ground before being taken hostage by Henretta and Goodhart, who commandeered her car and drove to Richmond, Va., where they released her. Donato subsequently indentified the suspects through police photographs, the FBI said.

The up-and-coming rapper Meek Mill says he would like nothing more than to be on the road touring all the time. "My best thing is to stay traveling," the 25-year-old North Philadelphia street rapper said Friday. "Every time I come back to Philadelphia, someone tries to shoot me or get me back in trouble. " But ties to the past are hard to cut - especially the one with your probation officer. So the troubled relationship between Meek Mill, né Robert Williams, and Philadelphia probation officer Treas Underwood was the subject of another long, contentious hearing before Common Pleas Court Judge Genece E. Brinkley.

You'd think you could find a few hours of safe camaraderie at jury duty. But among reluctant jurors at the Criminal Justice Center thrown together one September day to endure the interminable isolation and mind-numbing boredom of civic duty was an alleged stalker. He fell in love with a fellow juror, followed her home and told her children that he was going to take her away with him, the victim said. "He was telling me how much he loves me," said Debbie Arnott, of Kensington.

CORY HARLEY skipped work at a pizza place Nov. 10, got "smashed" at a bar, and while wandering in South Philly early the next day, walked up behind an unsuspecting woman, slashed her face and stole her purse. Harley, 31, admitted all that in a soft voice yesterday while pleading guilty to the 4 a.m. attack Nov. 11 that left a 6-inch scar across Ashley Hackett's jaw. Harley, however, declined to apologize to Hackett, 24, or to the dozen relatives and friends who were in court to support her. That didn't sit well with Common Pleas Judge Genece E. Brinkley, who sentenced Harley to 15 to 30 years in state prison for attempted murder and robbery, under the terms of a negotiated guilty plea.

" Big enough that, according to Meek Mill's tentative calendar, he's supposed to be in Los Angeles on Wednesday to appear on the Conan O'Brien show, his last U.S. stop before ending 2012 in Africa with shows in Lagos, Nigeria, and Libreville, Gabon. But to Philadelphia's criminal justice system, he's just Robert Williams, on probation for a 2008 gun-and-drug conviction for which he needs to periodically appear in Philadelphia courts.

He suffered the kind of freak incident that all too often turns tragic. When those two bullets ripped through Curtis Brinkley's shoulder, one lodging dangerously close to his heart, he easily could have become yet another homicide victim in 2009, one more black male whose life ended too soon. But if you know anything about Brinkley, you knew he wasn't going out like that. Hard work and sheer determination have always been big parts of Brinkley's repertoire, but his dream of playing in the NFL was never a sure thing.

THAT BIG GUY holding forth at the cafes and coffee shops of Center City, sipping his espresso, laughing it up with friends, was a former cop who didn't hesitate to kick in a door with the police narcotics strike force. From his friendly demeanor, you wouldn't know that Michael G. Brinkley had that kind of aggression in him, but when you're a cop chasing a suspect you don't let a door get in your way. Mike Brinkley, a 15-year veteran of the force, onetime chaplain of the Guardian Civic League, and a passionate sports-car buff, died suddenly March 16. He was 52 and lived in West Philadelphia.
