John Edwards' former babe inspired lusty, party-girl character in novel
NY Daily News ^ | 8/9/08 | JO PIAZZA AND JOANNA MOLLOY

The woman behind the John Edwards scandal has a wild past of sex and drugs so legendary her escapades were chronicled by novelist Jay McInerney.

Before moving to Los Angeles and beginning a career as a film producer, Rielle Hunter, 42, was known as Lisa Druck, a New York City party girl.

Hunter confessed to her sordid past on her Web site Being is Free, which was deleted from the Internet last April, soon after she ended her professional relationship with former presidential candidate John Edwards.

Parts of the Web site have been preserved by Deceiver.com and TheHuffingtonPost.com, including an interview with Hunter's ex-boyfriend McInerney, who based the main character Alison Poole on Hunter in his "Story of My Life."

McInerney met Hunter in 1987 and dated her for several months.

"It was narrated in the first person," McInerney wrote on Hunter's Web site about his novel, "from the point of view of an ostensibly jaded, cocaine-addled, sexually voracious 20-year-old who was, shall we say, inspired by Lisa [Rielle]."

The back cover of McInerney's novel, first published in 1988, describes Rielle's alter ego as "a budding actress already fatally well-versed in hopping the clubs, shopping Chanel, falling in and out of lust, and abusing other people's credit cards."

A former pal of Hunter's confirms her partying past saying she used to hang out at Nell's nightclub where there was a big drug scene.

"She is one of millions of other girls, not smart enough to make it as a writer, not pretty enough to model or act.

"She was average in every way, except for her drugs and whacked-out sense of truth," the friend said.

Just like Edwards himself ... not smart enough to make it in the real world, so he became an ambulance-chasing scumbag, then bought his way into politics.

I heard Rielle made herself irresistible to poor John. She wore a red light on her head, had “ambulance” tattooed on her back, and promised to “wail like a siren”...

Was she a web call girl offering a GFE experience Girlfriend experience for an hourly fee. Like Spitzers friend but operating on her own. Independant contractor.

The crack whore and the crooked shyster:

The heart and soul of the modern democrat party.

Slick sociopath Edwards was on the verge of being Obama’s Attorney General. What piece of feces will Obama come up with now?

"Not online"? There's almost no such thing. What was the original URL? If it isn't in the wayback machine, then someone moved a mountain to make that so.

A real life American Mattressback.
The difference between her and John Edwards is the price she charged.

Here's two insights into Ms. Hunter, from her website:

“Who knows why? Who cares? Whatever the reasons, could be a billion, obsessed girl that I am, I must have the damn book…..Justify justify justify addict addict addict. And, clearly, I need more reminders because clearly I can’t remember, so clearly I don’t have enough, oh my God, the comedy of it all. Somebody please stop the insanity.”

And:

I will however share I had a story filled with an intense amount of emotional and mental suffering. Major dysfunction junction. And, for as long as I can remember I had a relentless desire for truth. This turned out to be a helpful combo. I was never comfortable, never felt enough love, never satisfied, never fulfilled and I would not stop until that ended. Point being: If I can wake up anyone can, what it takes is the desire and the commitment to do so.

Spitzer paid much less on a per hour and a per experience basis than THE STUPID BRECK GIRL! I’m curious! since THE BRECK GIRL was having SEX with Rielle (another woman I assume), does that qualify as Lesbian Sex? ince EDWARDS claimed it was only SEX and he had/has NO Feelings or Love for HER, and he paid her a fortune for nothing apparent! Shouldn’t he be prosecuted for Prostitution, Money Laundering, Tax Fraud and Election Frauds:-)

And to think none of us thought he had a pecker.......GEEZ!

Did she apologize to Edwards wife and kids???? Her pity party doesn’t include them. What a drama queen tramp.

I think it is neat that Edwards boffed the bimbo. It is also neater that It got found out. How smart is he? Not very, apparently.

Someone must have been on the site recently. There's a recent discussion of it here, but no link, as far as I could tell.

The “Allison Poole” character also appear in “Glamorama”, a Bret Easton Ellis novel. Apparently she gets around (like a record).

She is “addicted to enlightenment.” Since the Breck Girl is able to channel the spirit world, it is clear that the two were perfect for each other.

I hope Edwards didn’t carry any of her cruddy diseases back to his cancer-stricken wife.
