Skip to comments.Rielle Hunter: I was helping John Edwards find his 'authentic self' (BARF)
Posted on 04/29/2010 12:34:40 PM PDT by BradtotheBone
Despite many people telling her it wasnt the best idea to sit down with Oprah Winfrey for an interview, Rielle Hunter - politician John Edwards' mistress - decided to do it anyway.
"I feel in my heart its the right thing to do," Hunter said Thursday, especially now that "Johnny," as she calls him, has admitted paternity of their daughter, Frances Quinn.
Hunter said she wanted to set the facts straight about who she is, and that while she understands the judgment that has been heaped upon her, she doesnt see herself as a home wrecker or gold digger, she told Winfrey.
I have been unfairly judged, Hunter said, adding that she believes people reacted so negatively to her relationship with Edwards because a lot of people bought into the myth of the marriage as being a storybook story, being so perfect and wonderful, and I destroyed it, she said.
While some have called her a gold digger, she wasnt after him for money, fame, attention. I was never after him. I met him and there was a very strong connection and attraction, Hunter said. And as for the home-wrecking accusations, Hunter observed, "Its not my experience that a third party can wreck a home. A home is wrecked before a third party comes into the picture."

If I was searching for my authentic self, I doubt I’d look for it in some skank’s cooter.
But that’s just me.
I just want to be among the first to say ...
We all owe this woman a HUGE debt of gratitude.
Boy, she’s gonna be a great mom. /sarc
So, his authentic self is liar, philanderer, egoist, marcissist, etc.
One of the most annoying things about these present times is that truly embarrassing people don’t know when to shut up. Maybe this is the “Age of Shamelessness”.
So, she’s an Authentic Self Seeker. ASS for short.
Not at all to condone her actions, but I do somewhat agree with her on this point.
Wonder if "Johnny" had any other flings along the way??
I fairly judge her to be an ugly skank (at least a couple of Tiger’s women were kind of sexy, although not close to his wife).
Her face looks like some high school boy’s. She’s one of the reasons to establish competency exams in order to vote. What a bimbo!
Actually, this is one of the most accurate things any of these bimboes have ever said, since Edwards is beyond doubt an authentic d***.
My my count she’s now 46 years old, plus there’s the kid. I doubt it’ll be much longer before “Johnny’s” eye begins wandering again.
You know, back in the 60's that's what they claimed LSD was for.
“”Its not my experience that a third party can wreck a home. A home is wrecked before a third party comes into the picture.”
I used to wonder if she was dumb. Now I don’t have to wonder anymore.
And the porno video they made was so they could improve their performance like debate rehersals and football plays, right?
I guess she couldn’t hook-up with any NBA players?

Funny how they forgot about Party label, or that he ran for president as a Democrat. I'm sure that was just an oversight.
The Pravda Media told us a whole lot of myths about a whole lot of Democrats. Your point IS?
Apparently it’s located just below his belt buckle.
His authentic self? A cheater scumbag? What a noble cause. /s
President and VP. And the media knew who he was just as they knew that Obama was still smoking tobacco.
Bill Clinton told Monica Lewinsky that he would leave Hillary for her.
Guys will lie to get in a girl’s panties.
Jimi Hendrix and others told dozens of girls that a “song” was written about them.
Well, his authentic self sure is a jerk.
Nothing is my fault, I did nothing improper and there is no right and wrong. There just is.
Oh, Rielle, you are just soooo... I dunno.. new-agey!! What a mental midget liberal. Redundant, I know.
“If I was searching for my authentic self, I doubt Id look for it in some skanks cooter.”
You’re not John Edwards.
Political parters, sorta like the Clintons.
LOL!! Classic ho talk.
And glad of it.
My favorite quote that I often told my daughter many years ago is from Robert E. Lee: “Do not believe what the young men tell you”.
Love it, now did he know human nature or not??
John Edwards’ wife was aware of the affair. It wasn’t a sudden thing. She has claimed that she thought it was over. But she was willing to cover it up to get in the White House, as you point out.
The media blacked out the story to keep Hillary in a 3 way race for delegates. Whether the people at the Enquirer ran the story for personal benefit or because the publisher is reportedly a friend of the Clintons is beside the matter. The MSM knowingly covered up this story.
Mark Halperin at Time defends the action saying they didn’t have enough to go on. He also defends the coverage of unconfirmed rumors that John McCain had an affair with a lobbyist.
The media punked America in 2008. Welcome to Soviet Pravda style journalism.
Absolutely believable.Every time you said "sure,I'm free" we saw the "authentic" John Edwards...aka:Father Of The Year 2004.
Sounds great for an excuse. But if true, then why not just wait until the party is divorced since the marriage is so bad. Then bed the guy.
It doesn’t matter how awful the marriage was, that’s not of her business anyway. The fact is he was still married and she’s a home wrecker. It would also appear a gold digger as well.
Yep, now we all know his authentic self.
What should she have said-”I’m no cheap whore; this guy is LOADED”? Some questions are asked strictly for the entertainment value of the idiotic obsfucations. Everyone knows the real answer that we’ll never hear.
A “heart to heart” between a dyke and a high priced whore. And that’s the news of the day. Unbelievable.
John Edwards’ authentic self? Well, let’s just say that if you rub him long enough, he turns into an NBA player.
Last night I told my wife I would do the dishes.
Is that what they are calling a Lewinski these days...
i guess she doesn't realize how ridiculous that sounds...
Yeah. Since I don't have an adoring public to please (FR is anonymous)I'll just have to run this "find myself through adultery and bastard child" line by the wife for test marketing.
“When did he have it last?” is always a good start.
And sadly whe actually believes it.
