The Rielle Hunter-John Edwards sex scandal saga continues to entertain. For the first time, Rielle Hunter is opening up about her tumultuous affair with John Edwards, a tryst that would eventually be the end of his presidential and political aspirations. Hunter, who also appears in a mildly-exposing photo shoot, says that she and Edwards were intimate from the very beginning, and goes into specific detail about their first encounter and how things played out after that, plus the "compassion" she has for Elizabeth Edwards. The mistress and the mother of former Senator Edwards' love-child, then cried to Barbara Walters that she is repulsed by her GQ photo shoot and claimed she thought they were only going to use head shots. This prompted GQ reporter Lisa DePaulo to go on Good Morning America and essentially say "Rielle Hunter is fucking liar!" The magazine fires back after she says she was repulsed by racy shots they took of her:
"Did she say she thought they would be headshots?" GQ reporter Lisa DePaulo asked incredulously on "Good Morning America."
"Rielle is a smart woman. She knows what she wore and what she was doing in the photo shoot," DePaulo said.
Hunter, a one-time videographer for Edwards' presidential campaign, posed for the pictures wearing only a man's button down white shirt, a string of pearls and panties. In some of the photos she is posed on a bed with stuffed animals piled around her. Her panties are peeking out in one frame.
But GQ released a video of the shoot to "GMA" today and at one point the videographer asks Hunter, "You want to take a look at this?"
It is kind of hard to claim you only thought a magazine was doing head shots when you're sitting in a pile of stuffed animals without pants on. Which raises another question: Why the hell are you being photographed in your child's bedroom without pants on? I dislike John Edwards but I am feeling a bit sorry for him at this point because I am sure Ms. Hunter lied to him that she was on the pill. And now she is using his love-child to gain fame and remind him exact how stupid he his to have shot load in her. Here are portions of the GQ interview with Rielle Hunter below:
On their first night together:
"I had never experienced anything like what was flowing between us. I sat on the other side of the room. I wouldn't go near him....There was sooo much attraction and sooo much...I want to say love, but it wasn't love at that point...it was just this, this magnetic force field like I had never experienced. It terrified me. And, um, I eventually walked over to his side of the room. [laughs] He was pretty relentless."
On breaking her silence:
"I feel comfortable talking now, because Johnny went public and made a statement admitting paternity. I didn't feel like I could ever speak until he did that. Because had I spoken, I would have emasculated him. And I could not emasculate him.... He's very supportive of me talking now....
"It's been four years. It's hard to know that people are out there speaking over and over and over again untruths. Lies. Consciously going out there and spinning the truth. Using me and Johnny and our relationship to make themselves look better, to play victim, or to get money."
Did he call you after the [televised] interview [where he denied paternity of your child]?
Hunter: Yes. And he said, "I’m sorry… It doesn’t mean anything." And it didn’t. I know he loves me. We love each other very much. He’s very honest and truthful.
But the irony of what you’re saying—right now, most people think he’s the most untruthful person in America.
Hunter: Everyone talks about how Johnny has fallen from grace. In reality, he’s fallen to grace. He is integrated. He is living a life of truth.
Um, what?! Are you fucking kidding me with this? But wait there is more:
Do you think he thinks that? That he’s more integrated now?
Hunter: Yeah. I think that he thinks that he is a much wiser and a much better and a more truthful and a more integrated human being.
You mentioned that it did go through your head, on that first night, that Johnny was married. Did that bother you?
Hunter: The force field of our love overrode any issues that would arise from my belief systems about, you know, “It should be going different than it is. He should be behaving differently than he is.” He doesn’t lie to me.
How can you be sure?
Hunter: [Because] he discloses everything to me. And he has no fear of lying to me. It’s the fear of what’s gonna happen that causes the lie. The fear of the repercussions.
Let me just stop right there so you can go grab a shovel, because you're gonna need it to get through the rest of this horseshit.
Dear God this bitch is insufferable. Not to mention all kinds of deluded. She was made for John Edwards. I wonder if Edwards is the suicide type? He is probably too full of himself to finish the job. Click on pictures to enlarge.
So even though you know he’s lied to his wife and his state and the country, you really never worry that he will lie to you?
Hunter: No. He does not lie to me. At all. [Before me], he had a huge fear. Most of his mistakes were because of his fear of the wrath of Elizabeth. He was emasculated.
