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.

Just in case his political career weren’t completely, totally and utterly obliterated already, The National Enquirer — which has been freakishly accurate in its coverage of this story — says a secret DNA test proves that John Edwards is in fact the father of his mistress’s daughter, Frances Quinn Hunter.
Rielle Hunter is currently believed to be testifying in secret grand jury proceedings regarding whether Edwards used campaign finance money to keep her quiet after she got pregnant. She was spotted last week in Raleigh, N.C., entering a federal courthouse, where she spent nine hours, but the U.S. attorney’s office in Raleigh has declined to confirm or deny an investigation.
I don’t really care what the DNA test results say. It doesn’t matter. Look at this little girl. She’s a dead ringer for John Edwards, and she has been basically from birth. There’s no doubt it’s his kid.

“I lived in New York a long time. I love your paper.”
Kip Hunter, the former husband of Rielle Hunter, with whom John Edwards just admitted to having an affair. This was the only quote he would give to the New York Post when they called to chat with him. I think that’s awesome.
Rielle has a long and distinguished history as a party girl. In fact, she dated playboy author Jay McInerney for a few months, and he was so “intrigued and appalled” by the behavior of her and her friends that he actually wrote an entire book about it, called Story of My Life. And seriously if you’ve read anything by Jay McInerney, you know that intriguing and appalling him is actually quite a feat.
Now that Edwards has admitted to this, it’s fair game for the mainstream publications, so expect a lot more details to come forward in the upcoming weeks. I’m so excited!
