Rielle Hunter’s 6 Most Ridiculous Moments
2:30 pm, June 18th | by
As a little kid, did you ever think to yourself, “When I grow up, I want to have an affair with a former Senator whose wife is terminally ill, do a bottom-less magazine spread, have a child with the shamed politician, and write a book about it all?” This, of course, is the life of Rielle Hunter. The “What Really Happened” author’s story worsens by the day, and it’s only going to disgust us more when she overshares details of her life on “20/20″ this week. You’d be hard-pressed to find a person with more nerve than the lady who slept with John Edwards soon before the death of his wife and tried to profit off the scandal, so here are a couple of her most shameful moments in media history.
Whoever suggested she write this should be sued.
2.Her 'till death do us part' comment
When Elizabeth Anania tied the knot with law school sweetheart John Edwards in 1977, she probably thought what they had would last forever and ever...and then it didn't. Though the marital fate of poor Elizabeth Edwards should be a cautionary tale to all as well as a drawback to dating John, Rielle doesn't seem worried that he's going to continue with his philandering ways. She
told GQ in 2010, " I have never had any doubt at all about that. We love each other very much. And that hasn't changed, and I believe that will be till death do us part. The love doesn't go away. It's unconditional." Some people just never learn.
3.Her terrible pick-up line
In the game of cheesy pick-up lines, Hunter wins first prize. While she worked as a videographer for Edwards's campaign, she reportedly
first came onto him by saying, "You are so hot," blatantly ripping off "Mean Girls" character Regina George's unforgettable line. It worked on Edwards regardless, which honestly says more about him than his unoriginal mistress.
4.Her 2010 GQ spread
GQ, you're a respectable publication. Why would you do this to us?
5.Her claim that Edwards had multiple affairs
Even if she's correct that Edwards
had other mistresses, we probably don't need to know that bit of information. Besides, she is in no position to be highlighting someone else's questionable actions.
6.Her lack of self awareness
I don't blame Hunter for Elizabeth's Edwards's demise, but she certainly did not enable the poor woman to live out her final days in peace. In 2010,
Hunter said she did not consider herself a home wrecker, explaining, "Infidelity doesn't happen in healthy marriages. The break in the marriage happens before the infidelity. And that break happened, you know, two and a half decades before I got there. So the home was wrecked already. I was not the Home Wrecker." Tell that to Edwards's daughter.
