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.

The party's over...
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.
She looks, can we say, rode hard and put away wet.
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.
Can Edwards get a discounted STD test along with his paternity test?
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?
Post #4: VERY funny!
I don’t know. She looks like she was rode hard and put away wet.
POST OF THE DAY!
A real life American Mattressback.
The difference between her and John Edwards is the price she charged.
That's probably the only thing that could make him take his admiring eyes off the hunk in the mirror...
In that National Enquirer story, she looks a lot more Bill Clinton’s type: cheap, chunky,...
You’re SOOOO bad...lol.
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 cant remember, so clearly I dont have enough, oh my God, the comedy of it all. Somebody please stop the insanity.
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.
Is that Duncan's daughter?
"And then I became a spiritual seeker, addicted to a higher consciousness, addicted to enlightenment."
