Few people disgust me more than slimeball creeper John Edwards, but his mistress Rielle Hunter has just gone up on my list of shame for writing a memoir about the affair she had with the former presidential candidate. The book, titled “What Really Happened: John Edwards, Our Daughter, and Me,” is being marketed as a tell-all on the crumbling of the skeevy politician’s reputation. I know America loves train-wrecks, but who really takes pleasure in reading about a man who cheated on his dying wife and fathered a child with another woman?
Nevertheless, publisher Glenn Yeffeth toldPEOPLE that BenBella Books is “delighted” to print Hunter’s story, as “no one has heard the truth of what really happened until now.” Okay, Hunter is the end-all source here, we can go home now.
Call me a cynic, but I think you’re more likely to be enlightened by Snooki than Hunter, so stay away from this memoir at all costs. Here are some others you should never read.
