Rielle Hunter Calls Elizabeth Edwards 'Witch on Wheels' in New Memoir
New York Post ^ | June 18, 2012

Posted on 06/18/2012 6:32:16 PM PDT by nickcarraway

Rielle Hunter, in a gossipy new memoir, calls the cancer-stricken wife of her lover, former presidential candidate John Edwards, a "witch on wheels" and claims that while they were furtively seeing each other he lied about having three other mistresses at the same time, according to a new report.

Hunter, who has a four-year-old daughter with Edwards, says she wrote the book, "What Really Happened," to give young Frances Quinn "one entirely truthful public account of how she came into the world. After all, this is her story too."

ABC News reported Monday that it had obtained a copy of the book, which will be released June 26. Hunter also will appear in an interview on ABC's "20/20" Friday.

Like I said before: Reading for the porcelain throne. Not that I doubt she's right about the despicable Elizabeth Edwards.

What are the odds that Rielle will be FLOTUS in Jan 2017?

(Hint: better than the odds were in 2007 of a guy named Baraq Hussein becoming POTUS Jan 2009.)

Typical Democrap. I’m always the victim and it’s always your fault, not mine.

This book will go over like a fluffy in church. Where’s the BARF alert, BTW?

It would surprise me if 30k copies of the book sell. I’m more likely to pick up some book on a cocktail waitress from Reno.

The one curious thing though....there are supposedly three other ladies in John Edward’s life. We have yet to hear from them. Maybe one of them is Hillary?

"Rielle" you were sleeping with her husband while she was fighting cancer and you think she was a witch?

Tell me something, you fake named bimbo, aren't you the least bit scared that there is a hell?

She was still the wife. Other bitch had no claim to anything, how dare she talk that way about the wife, no matter what she may have been?

I’m always interested to hear what an adulterous skank has to say about the woman she’s cheated on. I have no love for Elizabeth Edwards but it’s hard to sink lower on the morality scale than her trash-slinging homewrecker.

Seriously, a situation with nobody worth rooting for except maybe the love child who probably would be better off being raised by wolves.

"Rielle Hunter" (born Lisa Jo Druck)... According to ABC News, Lisa Druck was "a prize-winning equestrian when her father was implicated" in the "horse murders" scandal, "an ugly plot to electrocute horses for insurance money".[15] The convicted criminal and FBI informant Tommy "The Sandman" Burns stated that James Druck was involved in the 1982 insurance fraud death of Lisa's show jumper Henry the Hawk.

It very well might, if the popularity of reality shows is any guide. The bitchier the better.

When I hear a person of class making reasoned mature criticisms of another person, I usually take it seriously.

I’m sorry—the previous sentence had nothing to do with this thread.

Wouldn’t be surprised if it sold moderately well.

People love trashy gossip.

I have heard similar comments about Elizabeth Edwards but as far as we know she didn’t lie, cheat and steal.

That should be great for the poor kid.

A book proving that her mom is a neurotic, sociopathic, homewrecker slut and her father is a back-stabbing, philandering s***bag.

With such a "story," the kid is lucky if she doesn't grow up to be a gay, homeless heroin addict.

So she says she wrote this, “ to give young Frances Quinn “one entirely truthful public account of how she came into the world. After all, this is her story too.”

Whenever I see her name I always flash to a bad TV series (a totally original idea and no connexion to, association with, based on. or inspired by Tomb Raider in any way whatsoever - why would you even think that?)

Yes, she is screwed up, but then look at what her father did to her....unfortunate life.

You have dared to say what leaks said for years in the case of the tortured Elizabeth Edwards. May God rest her soul.

Rielle is going to defend John’s personal motivations at great personal cost to herself, revealing his heartache with Elizabeth and how she treated him, before she was ever diagonosed with a terminal illness.

Possibly Elizabeth was never the same after the loss of their young son, but from a human point of view, enough has been reported on background that John Edwards was trapped and miserable in his marriage to an ambitious tyrant, who reportedly embarrassed him with some regularity in front of staff and others.

he probably had three wigs and Rielle simply caught his comings and goings in drag.

Wow, you are really whitewashing a man who was am extreme narcissistic in a destructive way. Elizabeth and John found each other for a reason. He’s a really sick man, and her problems don’t excuse his. Even Kerry eventually found him to be a disturbing creep.

OOPS. Meant to add that Rielle should not call Elizabeth names in the process of describing John’s experiences with Elizabeth, considering her own role in making Elizabeth miserable and even more desperate.

The reports that intrigued a litte were those of the rather unmanageable Elizabeth before there ever was a Rielle, or the unfavorable diagnosis.

It was a cast of three unstable charactors.

I do have some pity for John Edwards, and agree with you on his clinically proportioned narcissism. It is not his behavior I excuse, but his condition.

I guess I believe it was a form of madness, gone quite untreated, if it can even be treated—a lost soul, and easy prey for a New Ager like Hunter, with her own father issues.

Edwards may well be the cause of Elizabeth’s tyrannical behaviors during their marriage, but they weren’t good for each other at some point, for some unknown reason, before the diagnosis and the affair.

The chicken or the egg, maybe is the question, as in who drove the other mad first? And the sad loss of the son is a factor. It is not unheard of that the loss of a child can be the seeming catalyst for divorce of the parents.

Look, I know about Elizabeth’s politics and all, but my friend knew her well As A Mother and says she was a very good, devoted, loving mother. She wanted to do right be her children above all else, and she had lost her first born when he was only 16. I can’t imagine. And she had to leave before she was done raising her two youngest.

Reille is a skeeze who jumped into bed with a famous married man. Nothing more.

Elizabeth was Hillary X 2. She knew about the affair and she still was out an about on TV and the campaign trail, campaigning for her husband whom she knew didn’t have a shot in hell at the presidency. But she did have plans for a massive house in Chapel Hill that needed funding. Yes, she’s dead and I hate it for her and her kids... but she was still a Class ‘A’ witch.
