'There was zero sleep': Rielle Hunter on her first time with John Edwards
(London) Daily Mail ^ | June 19, 2012

Posted on 06/19/2012 10:58:26 AM PDT by Zakeet

Rielle Hunter says the first time she slept with John Edwards was the 'most extraordinary night of her life.'

Lurid details continue to emerge about the affair that annihilated the two-time presidential candidate's political career as Hunter's tell-all memoir slowly leaks to the public.

The couple met in February 2006 at the Regency Hotel in New York City. Hours after Hunter approached the former North Carolina Senator, he called her up to his hotel room for a night of 'surrender' and 'zero sleep.'

[Snip]

Hunter says she caught Edwards' eye at the hotel when she followed him out of a reception and said, 'You are so hot.'

Hours later, she got a call from him inviting her to his room.

She claims she went only because she thought she could give Edwards advice for his presidential campaign. But that all changed the moment she was alone behind closed doors with 'her Johnny.'

'The connection I felt when I walked in the door had only grown and the amount of energy between us was huge and unstoppable,' Hunter writes.

'And then a moment came while we were talking when something in my heart clicked and I surrendered. I took off my teacher hat, let go of all my resistance to him and let him lead. And lead he did. He led me toward the most extraordinary night of my life. There was a lot of talk, a lot of laughter and zero sleep.'

But Hunter says she didn't give in easily to sleeping with a married man -- it took Edwards telling her a story about having three other mistresses to get her into bed that first night they met.

He probably didn’t touch her, just bragged about what a great lover he was and how she was going to be amazingly popular and wealthy by hanging out with him.

Yeah, openly deploying aggressive, sluttish, pick-up terminology is bound to “Catch a guy’s eye”.

Hunter, 48, says she spent most of her 20s snorting cocaine as she pursued an acting career in New York.

Hunter attacks Edwards’ wife Elizabeth, who died in December 2010 of breast cancer, calling her ‘crazy,’ ‘venomous’ and a ‘witch on wheels.’

Not right what she did with a married guy but a person who tells another they "are hot", even a stranger, is not sluttish in any way.

Is this any more special that the typical eye glances exchanged with the typical Edward's juror at a typical Edward's trial?

Disagree, in every way.

But then, I still think women should act like ladies, not aggressive, on-the make, sexual prowlers.

How unhip of me.

There is a new type of sin and scandal, as times change: SHAME. It used to be some action, but now it’s a FEELING:

If you do a bad thing and show you are ashamed, then the SHAME where you erred —the SHAME is the bad thing, not the action. And that’s because the new sin is, “bad vibes”.

It’s a new kind of hippy sin, similar to smoking, driving a car, or owning a gun.

If there is no shame, there is no sin, apparently. Thus, you can do anything as long as you proclaim you’re proud of that thing, and/or you smoosh it in everyone’s faces.

Heroin addict? No problem. Just make sure to write a book about it. You sell your body? Do interviews about it in order to Make It Okay.

That’s what she’s doing, here. She’s making it okay by demonstrating that she is free of shame.

C’mon folks, I think most of us have “been there and done that” at some point in our lives. I’m old and starting to lose my memory - but not my MEMORIES. Some of the things I did weren’t anything I’d want to tell my mother about but I’m not sorry I did them. I think most of you have similar memories - except for those of you who are best described as ‘dogs’ or so staid you think anything fun must also be a sin.

Actually, Hunter came from a wealthy family and was already semi-famous, having been involved in a famous criminal case and the subject of a novel by one of the more popular writers of recent decades.

A women telling a man he is hot(or vica versa) is just harmless flirting...been going on for generations...not anything new.

So for Rielle, what made her decide to sleep with the married Edwards, was him telling her stories that he had three other mistresses he slept with prior to her.

My gosh, what women hearing this, could stop herself from sleeping with a guy who just told her that?

Seriously.

Might I suggest you return your attention to your biology book? Once a month, or about every 28 days, human females come into heat, just like every other mammal does, though sometimes after different periods of time. When they do they exhibit the fact with abnormal behavior such as provocative glances and suggestions. They may not realize just what they’re doing but they’re advertising for a mate. the fact they already have a legal mate doesn’t make a bit of difference - they advertise anyway.

We human go through a long and detailed religious and legal routine to establish just who is mated with whom, but that process is a product of our intellects, not our genes and certainly not our hormones.

I have done a small amount of research on the subject of monogamous mammals and so far have only found two: humans and a small, mouse-like rodent along the southern Oregon and northern California coast. The rodents are dying out and the humans are committing suicide.

‘Nuff said?

OK, these two old southern ladies--daughters of the Confederacy--were sitting and rocking on the front porch of their rest home. Lucille turned to Debbie and said, "Deb, I was jus' remembering the wonderful balls and promenades we used to got to when we were debutantes. Can you remember the minuet?". And Debbie replied, "Lucy--hail, I cain't even remember all the men I laid and you want me to ...." So the doctor shows up at her home and is giving the old girl a physical examination. She isn't at all comfortable with the new, young doctor. He folds his stethoscope and asks, "Ma'am, have you ever been bed-ridden?" She turned crimson red, recalled that he was a doctor and said, "Well, yes I have--if you must know. A few times in buggies, and in quite a few cars as well." The other old gal goes down to the bank to see about a loan. She's inherited some money and is thinking about putting in indoor plumbing, particularly a privy. The banker doesn't recognize her, even after she tells him in so many words what she wants. She doesn't make it into town very often. He says, "I hope you don't mind me asking, but where have you been doing your business?" She replies, "My goodness, I--well I've been going to the piney thicket behind the house."

I think you forget that he was a married man, a public figure, and ALMOST V.P. of the U.S. I am sure that she knew all of this, as did he. I am also sure she was aware that she was capable of becoming pregnant and I am sure that she is in a much better financial position NOW than at any other time in her silly, loser life.

This just goes to show that Edwards was is and always will be a scumbag. and a trial lawyer, but I repeat myself.

Like a Rock Star ‘groupie’ it didn’t matter to her how many babes he had? To her The Silky One was a royal celebrity and that alone was her aphrodisiac. She’s probably putting a little or a lot of spin into her story and thoughts about it. She wanted Silky Pony just as much—consequences be damned.

More than enough.

One can only take so much of selective, third class “biological” analysis.

I would “suggest” that you return your attention to an analysis of the long proven benefits of genteel, civilized behavior and the longstanding Western tradition of woman being the gatekeeper of sexual behavior in advanced societies.

I think you are in the wrong Forum if you want to promote promiscuity as the natural human condition

I’m not even going to judge Edwards here. I have no idea what was going on in his marriage or if he was just looking to bed women.

This wack job needs to shut her mouth. She is bad mouthing the mother of his children and when her own daughter grows up will be a complete basket case.

Shut up lady!

Especially for you Oldfart

Another case of “Don’t mess with the Oldies”.......................

Defence Attorney:
Will you please state your age?

Old Lady:
I am 94 years old.

Defence Attorney:
Will you tell us, in your own words, what happened the night of April 1st?

Old Lady:
There I was, sitting there in my swing on my front porch on a warm spring evening,
When a young man comes creeping up on the porch and sat down beside me.

Defence Attorney:
Did you know him?

Old Lady:
No, but he sure was friendly.

Defence Attorney:
What happened after he sat down?

Old Lady:
He started to rub my thigh.

Defence Attorney:
Did you stop him?

Old Lady:
No, I didn’t stop him.

Defence Attorney:
Why not?

Little Old Lady:
It felt good. Nobody had done that since my Albert died some 30 years ago.

Defence Attorney:
What happened next?

Old Lady:
He began to rub all over my body.

Defence Attorney:
Did you stop him then?

Old Lady:
No, I did not stop him.

Defence Attorney:
Why not?

Old Lady:
His rubbing made me feel all alive and excited. I haven’t felt that good in years!

Defence Attorney:
What happened next?

Old Lady:
Well, by then, I was feeling so spicy’ that I just lay down and told him
‘Take me, young man. Take me now!’

Defence Attorney:
Did he take you?

Old Lady:
Hell, no! He just yelled, ‘April Fool!’ And that’s when I shot him, the little bastard.
