Rielle trashes Elizabeth Edwards: 'She does not give off good energy'
New York Daily News ^ | August 10th 2008 | HELEN KENNEDY

Posted on 08/11/2008 4:11:30 AM PDT by IbJensen

Rielle Hunter compared John Edwards with Gandhi and went around trashing his cancer-stricken wife, it was reported Sunday.

A Newsweek writer who courted her as a source during Hunter's affair with the presidential candidate portrays Edwards' mistress as a charming but hugely indiscreet muddlehead who called reporters with New Age babble about Edwards' "old soul."

Asked about Elizabeth Edwards, who is unusually well-liked by political operatives and reporters, Hunter told reporter Jonathan Darman, "She does not give off good energy. ... I've only met her once.... She didn't make eye contact with me."

Darman wrote of meeting Hunter, a former yoga instructor hired by the Edwards campaign to shoot Web videos, at a campaign event in 2006 and later getting an e-mail from her, saying she had a story for him.

The story she wanted printed was that Edwards was "an old soul" with a "special energy" who could be a transformational leader like Mahatma Gandhi or the Martin Luther King Jr. if he used his heart more and his head less.

"Her purpose on this Earth, she said, was to help raise awareness about all this, to help the unenlightened become better reflections of their true, repressed selves," Darman wrote - underscoring yet again the candidate's stunning lack of judgment.

Darman said he asked, "Do you talk about this stuff with the candidate?"

Hunter's reply: "All the time."

Darman wrote a small story about Edwards hiring a woman he had met in a bar that appeared in the Dec. 25, 2006, issue of Newsweek.

When he saw her again a few weeks later, Hunter said she'd been fired by the campaign and blamed Elizabeth Edwards.

"'Someday,' Rielle said, 'the truth about her is going to come out,'" Darman wrote.

In the summer of 2007 - long after the affair was over, according to Edwards, and several months after Elizabeth Edwards got a grim cancer diagnosis that gave her only a few years to live - Hunter told Darman she was dating a mystery man she couldn't name.

Freelance writer Sarah Miller, describing meeting Hunter at a party in Los Angeles some years ago, said Hunter was scatter-brained but ambitious.

"I am going to be famous," she declared, according to Miller's account in the Los Angeles Times. "Rich and famous. I am going to meet a rich, powerful man."

Miller said Hunter, who talked of energies in the air, said she would accomplish this feat by "manifesting it."

In a bizarre case of six degrees of scandal separation, Hunter was married in the 1990s to Kip Hunter, son of the Colorado district attorney who famously led the failed JonBenet Ramsey murder investigation. They divorced in 1999.

In confessing his affair Friday, Edwards told ABC he doesn't think his political career is over, but his chances of being asked to reprise his 2004 veep run, serve in the cabinet or even address the Democratic convention are now less than zero.

Edwards, who scored more than 60 delegates and came in third behind Sens. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton in his bid for the White House, confirmed he won't even attend the Democratic convention in two weeks.

Mimi Hockman, Hunter's business partner, told reporters gathered outside her South Orange, N.J., house: "Don't waste your time. I'm contractually prohibited from talking to you."

I wouldn't be the least bit suprised if Rielle is the source for TNE. Given her occupation and ambition, who doubts there's an Edwards sex tape out there....? Sorry about that for those having breakfast.

“Gasp”, I’m not an Elizabeth fan but I’d like to send her my cast iron skillet to bash John on the head and his embarrassingly idiot tramp too!

This is juicy stuff, LOL!

I wonder if Reille believes in Karma? Bad joo joo all around. Edward is getting his, HAH!

Yeah, I think dying of cancer and watching a sleeze bag husband banging an airhead who got into his orbit by talking about his inner vibes and such nauseating new age crap,,,,just might give one a tendancy to have bad vibes. ANd avoid eye contact with the ditzy slut.

The unlovely Reille was raising more that the Breck Girl’s awareness.

This was a slut with a well known reputation and the dummy fell hook line and sinker.

Much as ole hitlery was brought down by a street hustler, this dope was brought down by his huge ego.

We surely are living in interesting times.

No question about that. Anyone who seems overly interested/impressed with me after first meeting makes me wonder what's wrong with them. Then again, I'm not in politics or showbiz. I suppose it takes a bit of narcissism to advance in those fields.

It's my guess that Mrs. Edwards has grown weary of Mr. Edwards shenanigans with younger women, but rather than doing something about it, she ignores them and the situation.

Exactly!

He claims he was meeting with her to make sure she was not going public with their affair. Well, couldn’t that have been done through one of his minions OR over the phone?

He is the “babydaddy.”
No doubt.

No kidding. I don’t know how Elizabeth held herself back. The chance to be First Lady is not worth the beat down those two idiots deserve. I hope Elizabeth destroys her! What a horrible position Edwards put her in. He should’ve made the rest of Elizabeth’s life as happy as he could.

As I mentioned two weeks ago, Elizabeth Edwards is snowing America. She’s known about this and continued to lie on his behalf. She’s no better than any of the other scum in this tangled web...

And how much of a soul does Andrew Young’s wife have??

Based on this snippet of hers:

“On May 4th 2004, enlightenment happened. Meaning, I realized I AM what I’ve been looking for. And it’s my experience that when Self truly realizes Self, the awareness doesn’t go anywhere, there is nowhere for it to go. It’s always here. Enlightenment is conscious connectedness with It, felt oneness with totality that never goes away. Enlightenment is living a human life as awareness of being 24/7.”

I think she’s been writing speeches for The Obama.

Elizabeth surely is lying about knowing about the affair in ‘06. Most likely she learned the details only late last month.

Edwards big bucks are keeping most of the major players in line here, but I feel the pressure will get to great soon.

First to crack - Andrew Young.

“If the affair was long over and the child wasn’t his, what was he doing in her hotel room at 2:am?”

Talking to her, according to Edwards. For about six hours on how to say no to reporters.

Then after six hours of trance talk he left and threw her under the bus.
And it’s already wearisome how the media has deified Elizabeth Edwards.

She is a co-conspirator to this fiasco and the author of the John Edwards statement, “I did not love her.”

That’s a line only a wife could come up with for a political statement on an affair. Sympathetic to her illness but the media worships her because they share her left wing views. Mrs. Larry Craig got no consideration. Wonder why.

I agree 100% Sick or not, Elizabeth Edwards is not a nice person. Her posts at DU with all the filthy language and the moonbat hatred towards Bush and her dissing her neighbor just because he is a Republican attests to that. I am sorry that she has cancer. I sincerely hope she beats this thing but she is not a nice person.

Is this what Breck girl was referring to when he said he was a narcissist? I wonder what his therapist told him. It’s always a bad sign when a person openly refers to themselves as a narcissist.

As a guy, I gotta ask this question. Are there any women out there with enough self-respect to send these clowns packing? Until then, she's no better than the rest, she's just the whore at the head of the table.

What I thought was interesting is that Edwards described his narcissism as sort of a passing thing, all caused by the campaign.

Narcissism is a lifetime trait or condition. It doesn’t come and go.

That’s why I said it was a bad sign he said it. It doesn’t just go away. It sounds like he was told by his therapist he is a naracisst. Lord only knows what else he told his therapist? One can only wonder.

If you're looking for self-respecting women, Free Republic is lousy with them. :)

I'd be surprised if the vast majority of FReeper females don't and wouldn't put up with this kind of nonsense.
