Grab the Kleenex, gang: Rielle Hunter and John Edwards broke up late last week. And like high schooler with a mega-phone, Hunter decided to announce this news to the world just days later. Oh, except her mega-phone was Good Morning America.

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 told PEOPLE 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.

Technically John Edwards is on trial for misappropriation of campaign funds, but as far as the public is concerned he’s on trial because he spent said campaign funds on his mistress while his wife was dying of cancer.

The John Edwards trial is a twisted web indeed. Allegations of campaign misconduct, gross details about Edwards’ and Rielle Hunter’s relationship that no one wanted to hear about. And, yes, then there are the stories of how Edwards talked about Hunter behind closed doors. It’s across-the-board awful. And it would seem that one network is getting a little squeamish.
