“We are a family, but as of the end of last week John Edwards and I are no longer a couple. Not at all. For me, for my part in it, it’s because I’m no longer interested in hiding, hiding our relationship, not living out. I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but we’ve had a lot of media scrutiny. It’s complicated and it’s hard. It wears you down after a while.”
I mean ugh. How does this woman even stand herself at the end of the day? How does that back of dicks stand himself at the end of the day? The whole thing is just awful, and the fact that Rielle is talking about this *STILL* (and airing her and John’s personal dirty laundry on ‘The View’ of all places) just kills me.
John Edwards, whose estranged wife, Elizabeth, passed away a few weeks ago after a battle with cancer, has reportedly popped the question to his baby mama and partner in busting up a long-term marriage, Rielle Hunter.
Sources indicate that she said yes, and I have no doubts that this story is totally legit – it was the Enquirer that broke the story of the affair those years ago, so why wouldn’t they be spot-on this time, too? It’s like the magazine has a bug stuck to Edwards’ ass, which transmits messages every time he shits, cheats, or proposes to some crazy-eyed famewhore.
And speaking of which, the headline on the latest edition screamingly directs John’s two young children to CALL RIELLE MOMMY. Because yes. Calling the woman who broke your mommy and daddy up ‘Mommy’ is probably just as rational as assuming that these children forgot that their mother died three weeks ago.
This is going to be a totally normal, non-obsessive relationship. For sure.
Just when you think this psychopath couldn’t sink any lower, Rielle Hunter, the former mistress of politician John Edwards, is flapping her gums to ‘family friends’ to the tune of wanting to make her and Edwards’ relationship ‘official’ by gittin’ hitched.
Radar Online claims to have sources placed close to the Edwards family, and the inside makes no bones about stating that Rielle is practically about to sprint down the aisle, John grudgingly in tow:
“Rielle has been very patient through all of this. She still believes that John is her soul mate, and she thinks that they’re going to get married.”
On the topic of Elizabeth’s fatal illness, Hunter had been rather apathetic, and the sources say that her attitude almost bordered on outright scorn:
“She [Rielle] doesn’t care about anyone but herself. She’s been selfish and horrible this whole time, no matter what else has been said about her.”
Just because the media has painted Rielle Hunter to look like a husband-stealing slut doesn’t mean that her family’s going to be her support system. In fact, Rielle’s sister Roxanne Marshall is going to join right in on the bashing. In an interview with Extra, Roxanne said the following about her sister’s affair with John Edwards and the one big thing that Rielle failed to mention in her interview with Oprah:
“They were married, she has cancer. She has two little children. She deserves some respect. I would like to tell Mrs. Edwards that I feel so bad about the whole situation, and in my heart, I feel for her.”
I have to say, while sticking with your family is always respectable, sometimes doing the right thing and apologizing to a woman that’s clearly been hurt by your kin is the better thing to do. I really respect that Roxanne made this statement because if I was related to Rielle Hunter, Michelle “Bombsell” McGee, Rachel Uchitel or any of these infamous mistresses, I would be both humiliated and saddened by their actions.
Do you think Roxanne did the right thing by apologizing to Elizabeth Edwards?
And I don’t think I’m a 26 year-old Caucasian female, either. I must have been mistaken at some point in life.
Hunter sits down for an interview with Oprahtoday (make sure you tune in!) and in anticipation of the Big Interview, quotes from the interview have been released as bait for the public. This is to be Hunter’s first “real” television appearance since allegations of the John Edwards affair broke and Rielle’s not keeping quiet this time, hell no.
In a promo for today’s show, Oprah claims that Hunter “doesn’t think she’s a homewrecker,” and “does not think she played a key role in breaking up the Edwards’ marriage.”
As for a continuation of a Hunter/Edwards intimate relationship? “That’s private,” Rielle claims, and laughs.
So. Homewrecker, fame-whore, misunderstood or d) none of the above?
Nothing but the best for John Edwards’ mistress, Rielle Hunter. Homegirl has decided who she wants her first television interview to be done with, and obviously she went for the queen, Oprah. The interview will take place in Rielle’s Charlotte, North Carolina home and will most likely air during May sweeps.
An “insider” spoke to The National Enquirer about the interview and said, “She’s excited about giving her account of how she met John, how the affair began and what’s in store for her future. Rielle also wants to clear the air about the GQ photos – she’s basically doing it to get the truth out and tell her side of the story.”
While most married men who get caught sleeping around would do literally anything to silence their partners in adultery, John apparently not only said it was fine that Rielle took the interview, but he encouraged her to do it and get her side of the story out there.
This interview should be at least mildly interesting. Oprah tends to go soft at times (LOL), but she typically holds it down when she’s talking to non-celebs. I’m expecting a good mix ass-kissing and truth-telling.
That Rielle Hunter! She always knows how to keep her name in the headlines, whether she’s banging a married Presidential candidate or involving their lovechild in a sexual photo spread for GQ or … complaining about said photo spread to Barbara Walters.
Are we done with this woman yet?
Rielle Hunter seems to be having some regrets about her her GQ spread. On The View today, Barbara Walters said she had talked to Rielle Hunter this morning.
“She was in tears when she called,” said Walters, “and said that when she saw the pictures in GQ she screamed for two hours. She said she found the photographs repulsive.”
So Walters says she asked if that was the case why did she pose for them? “She said she trusted Mark Seliger, whom she said is a brillant photographer and quote, ‘I went with the flow,’” recounted Walters.
Walters says Hunter “thought that having one of those photos was okay and would be sexy and that there were others that were just beautiful headshots, but that GQ picked photos to hit one note.”
This woman can’t possibly be that stupid. You’re famous because you slept with John Edwards and had his child! And then you posed with that child, on a bed, with your bare stomach showing. You thought GQ magazine was going to use the beauty shots??
OF COURSE YOU DIDN’T. You’ve made a career of this kind of shit. You knew exactly what you were doing. That doesn’t make it any less abhorrent. This kind of crap was admittedly impressive back when you were twenty years old and Jay McInerney was writing about it, but you’re nearly 46 years old now, and you have a child who is already going to spend her life fighting an uphill battle against the circumstances of her birth, and you’re still pulling this slutty ditz act? Cut it out.
