Rielle Hunter GQ Photos Leave Former John Edwards Mistress in Tears

As we noted in an earlier post, John Edwards‘ mistress Rielle Hunter posed for some rather tasteless photos for GQ magazine to go along with her tell-all interview about her affair with the former presidential candidate. Well, apparently, Rielle Hunter herself agrees the pictures are disgusting.

On The View Monday, Barbara Walters said Rielle Hunter called her “in tears” over the photos of her published in GQ magazine. According to Walters, Hunter “screamed for two hours” after seeing the GQ photos. “She said she found the photographs repulsive,” Walters said.

So why the hell did Rielle Hunter pose for the icky, half-clothed photos of her sprawled out on a bed covered in her daughter’s toys? According to Walters, Hunter said “she trusted Mark Seliger, whom she said is a brilliant photographer and quote, ‘I went with the flow.'”

Hunter reportedly “thought 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.”

Yeah, blame it all on GQ for making you look like a ho. Please, you can’t tell us that you go and pose for photos like that and expect the magazine to NOT use them when you’re the key player in a massive political scandal and sexual affair with a former presidential candidate. Especially when you just have to dish about how John Edwards was a “relentless lover” who slept with you the first night you met him in the very same magazine.

John Edwards Mistress Rielle Hunter Says She’s No Gold Digger

John Edwards‘ mistress and baby momma Rielle Hunter (born Lisa Jo Druck) is finally speaking out about her affair with the former presidential hopeful. Hunter says she is not the “gold-digger” she’s been portrayed as and claims her love for Edwards “is till death do us part.”

“I’m not a predator, I’m not a gold digger, I’m not the stalker,” John Edwards’ mistress Rielle Hunter says in an interview with GQ. Hunter also claims it is not her fault John Edwards and his wife Elizabeth Edwards ended up with their marriage on the rocks. “Infidelity doesn’t happen in healthy marriages… So the home was wrecked already. I was not the Home Wrecker.”

Hunter told GQ that she first met and slept with John Edwards in February 2006. According to her, the connection between them was instant and electric. “I had never experienced anything like what was flowing between us… It terrified me.”

In the GQ interview, which is accompanied by several sensual photos of Rielle Hunter, the former Edwards staffer says rumors the two are planning to wed have no validity. As for whether or not wedding bells might be in the future someday, well, you never know.

“I do know that I love him and that love is till death do us part, and probably beyond.” Hunter said. “The love doesn’t go away. It’s unconditional.”

We have two things to say about Rielle Hunter’s GQ interview. First, it really doesn’t help your claims you aren’t a gold digger, predator or stalker when you go blabbing your mouth about your affair to the public at large. Keeping your damn mouth shut would have gone a lot further in making you not look so much like a fame-whore.

Secondly, it is more than cheap and downright nasty to have a photo of you posing with your kid in your magazine right next to photos of you looking like a second-rate porn star. That’s just wrong and disturbing and tells us a lot more about your psyche than anything that comes out of your mouth.
