Edwards mistress crushed that GQ used racy photos which she enthusiastically posed for

posted at 5:47 pm on March 15, 2010 by Allahpundit

Two clips for you, the first the set-up via this morning’s “The View” and the second the punchline via GQ. You can imagine her thought process: “What better way to correct public perceptions that I’m promiscuous and opportunistic than to pose half-naked on my infant daughter’s bed?” And yet, somehow, the finished product didn’t quite capture that element of class she was going for. Go figure.

The interview’s worth reading if only for the amusing cooing about what a sweet, soulful fellow “Johnny” is and how even she thought he shouldn’t have run for president. This is … interesting too:

And what was his reaction [to the pregnancy]?
He was always very gracious about it. And always said that he would support whatever decision I made. But I believe on some level he was hoping I would get an abortion. Because he didn’t—he wasn’t happy about the timing. Which is understandable. [laughs] He was married and running for president. And I find it interesting that my daughter thought that would be a good time to come into the world. That daddy was running for president and married to someone else. “Gee, I think now’s the perfect time.” There’s something to be said for divine timing…

So he was gracious, really? There were no fights about it?
No, there were no fights. He was very gracious, but I always felt the underlying discontent in his graciousness. I remember one time in Miami—or was it Orlando? [laughs] I traveled a lot to see him. But he said to me, he was like, “There’s just nothing I can say to make you change your mind about this.” and I said, “Nope.” he said, “Guess I’m just gonna have to accept it.” very teasing and sweet.

In the immortal words (well, almost) of John Edwards himself, why didn’t he come to her like a f***ing man and ask her to have an abortion?

Oh — if you’re reading the GQ interview for dirt on the legendary Edwards sex type, let me save you the time and tell you that Hunter’s not at liberty to talk about it. But no worries. The Daily Beast has got you covered.

Am I the only guy here who thinks she’s good looking? Seriously, Hunter probably isn’t SI cover material but the woman isn’t exactly ugly either.

I find her attractive. I don’t think it’s so much her physical appearance but the vulnerability she projects that which makes a beta male feels like an alpha.

The hunt, the seduction–making her want you–is the best part of it.

Liam on March 15, 2010 at 6:52 PM

You’re judging her on what you know, judge Hunter on just her looks without having any idea of her past or her sexual associations. Not bad looking.

Bishop on March 15, 2010 at 6:59 PM

I have a feeling there is more than one guy out there that got tired of ‘hitting’ that…

Seven Percent Solution on March 15, 2010 at 7:01 PM

She’s appealing in that special…”I want to bathe in your Man gravy” way.

I’m sentimental that way, you know?

LtE126 on March 15, 2010 at 7:02 PM

Bishop on March 15, 2010 at 6:59 PM

She has a physical appeal, yes.

Hey, I’m just busting your chops ONLY since you’re letting me get away with it so far.

I wouldn’t kick out of bed. Well, not until morning. When she brews my coffee on her way out. LOL

Liam on March 15, 2010 at 7:03 PM

Maybe she should be a little more concerned about why she’s even posing for photos in the first place. If I was some ugly broad, known only for getting knocked up by an ambulance chasing progressive who’s wife has cancer, I’d probably be more concerned about staying away from cameras in general.

RightWinged on March 15, 2010 at 7:05 PM

Once. I’d have to be pretty hammered.

rollthedice on March 15, 2010 at 7:11 PM

Hate to say it, but I’d probably give her a sheet twisting tussle….I have no presidential ambitions.

joe btfsplk on March 15, 2010 at 7:16 PM

I see that she still keeps her legs open.

bloggless on March 15, 2010 at 7:16 PM

After reading these male generated comments, I see that there are many desperate men here. Remember even after the make-up and lighting she is still a buttaface.

If this skag thinks Edwards is going to marry her after Liz croaks she is as stupid as she is fugly.

borntoraisehogs on March 15, 2010 at 7:21 PM

Based on the Boudoir Photo Shoot, I’d say she is a whore. Not the kind that are down on Union Ave. but a whore nonetheless. Edwards got what was coming to him.

JeffB. on March 15, 2010 at 7:30 PM

The whore doth protest.

borntoraisehogs on March 15, 2010 at 7:21 PM

So brutally, painfully true. As soon as he is divorced, the really hot, really sleazy chicks who crave millionaires will be dripping off Edwards like a little, white Tiger Woods.

PS Elisabeth…wow.

Jaibones on March 15, 2010 at 7:36 PM

she voluntarily posed half naked and she is shocked, SHOCKED at the tacky tawdry photos that resulted.

Willie on March 15, 2010 at 7:42 PM

I dunno, she looks rode hard and put away wet to me.

faol on March 15, 2010 at 7:44 PM

She’s gross. She’s sitting for a photo shoot with GQ with 5 month black roots? Classy. She isn’t remotely attractive.

She’s ugly.

austinnelly on March 15, 2010 at 6:48 PM

MadisonConservative on March 15, 2010 at 7:53 PM

Not enough glam make-up and soft lighting in the world to make this middle-aged, gold-digging, amoral skank attractive.

Besides, we’ve already seen what she really looks like (in those infamous campaign videos). Yuck.

I hope she and Edwards do end up together, though. These two pathetic losers truly deserve each other.

AZCoyote on March 15, 2010 at 7:58 PM

Liam on March 15, 2010 at 8:08 PM

The creepy thing is (er, among many), the picture with her daughter is really, really cute. Playful and sweet and something you’d want 3′x4′ framed, on your wall. Bookended by these trashy, skank-in-fake-pearls, escort service ad pictures.

On an unrelated note, GQ calls and tells you they’re coming to spend a day photographing you. On what world do you not have your roots done?

Tanya on March 15, 2010 at 8:11 PM

Guys c’mon. She isn’t model quality but I’d take her over Obama’s wife any day of the week.

Sort of like death by flamethrower over death by self-immolation?

Liam on March 15, 2010 at 9:08 PM

Get Rielle, so to speak. knew Elizabeth Edwards had terminal cancer and three children, two of them very young, but she pursued Mr. Edwards, anyway. She surrendered the two things that distinguished her positively — keeping her side of the story and her daughter private amid a tawdry public scandal — simultaneously in one interview. And yet several gentlemen here would still “do her,” apparently because she’s blonde and easy.

Barkeep, let’s have another round of stereotypes.

Terrie on March 15, 2010 at 9:17 PM

Of course not, but women do. This is the female equivalent of: Michelle Malkin is coming to interview you, and you’re proudly wearing your ‘Geraldo For President’ shirt when the cameras arrive.

Tanya on March 15, 2010 at 10:13 PM

Her bottom lip looks as if she has a plug of chewin’ tobacco in it.

faol on March 15, 2010 at 10:23 PM

I suspect she feels like a slut and that influenced her perception.

It only takes a few minutes for a Congressman to turn a female into a tramp.

Michelle Obama ran off Husseins girlfriend Vera Baker. Did Barry’s girl have a bedroom video also?

seven on March 15, 2010 at 10:53 PM

Seriously, guys, grow some standards. Hunter is not an attractive woman.

And wasn’t Newsweek just crowing about how she has conducted herself with “dignity?”

Neither she nor Edwards have any idea what dignity is. No one involved in this whole sorry scenario does.

Meredith on March 15, 2010 at 11:05 PM

Freaking. Trash.
I have more respect for the girls on the Bad Girls Club. At least they own up to what they are.

azkag on March 16, 2010 at 12:16 AM

Reille Hunter: “It’s not fair….GQ took advantage of my stupidity.”

(so did John Edwards)

olesparkie on March 16, 2010 at 7:42 AM

I just want to put my two cents in about Rielle Hunter’s attractiveness. If you are looking at just the physical side, she is maybe a 7.5 of 10. She is pretty but not amazing. Her looks are common beauty. There is nothing remarkable about her that makes you remember what she looks like when compared to somebody like Morena Baccarin or Angelina Jolie.

But frankly, I could never see her as attractive after understanding more about her. She is a groupie type, or a gold digger type. I don’t know how else you could describe a woman that will sleep with a guy who she knows is married and his wife has cancer. There is not a shred of dignity or morality there. Maybe she doesn’t like being portrayed as a slut, but if the shoe fits…

The third pice is her intelligence. That part I cannot really speak to very much. I have studiously avoided most of this story and I have never seen her conversing. My gut instinct is that she is pretty dumb if she didn’t understand that the pictures GQ was taking in the shoot made her look slutty.

Hawthorne on March 16, 2010 at 7:53 AM

How long before she gets a gig on the boob tube?

reaganaut on March 15, 2010 at 6:14 PM

Only if they launch a new series, Dancing with the Whores

silenced majority on March 16, 2010 at 8:44 AM

He was always very gracious about it. And always said that he would support whatever decision I made. But I believe on some level he was hoping I would get an abortion.

Squaring this with the witnessed content of that video makes Edwards a very… odd person.

Tanya on March 15, 2010 at 8:11 PM

Or combed your hair? Or, you know, finished dressing?

That said, the picture with her daughter is cute. It kind of caught be my surprise how old she is.

Count to 10 on March 16, 2010 at 10:41 AM

She is a groupie type, or a gold digger type.

What?! She’s a lovely woman. As she herself says “I’m not conventional, I don’t fit into a box”. The fact that Edwards is a billionaire is a mere coincidence! I’m sure that no one will ever do to her what she did and even if it did happen that would be OK because, heaven forbid, who wants to be conventional…

yubley on March 16, 2010 at 10:55 AM

For some reason I saw a trailer in the background. Watching the photographer chewing like a playground schoolboy only enhanced the effect.

volsense on March 16, 2010 at 10:55 AM

I believe Commander Worf has a different opinion.

gonnjos on March 16, 2010 at 10:56 AM

Yes, she’s good looking, but she’s also an idiot. Actually, I wonder if her protest over the photos published is genuine. The over/under on a Playboy pictorial? Four months.

Ward Cleaver on March 16, 2010 at 11:01 AM

Jay McInerney’ sloppy seconds? The fact that she’s supposedly a profession videographer and doesn’t understand how she photographs for an important magazine photoshoot?

That might be a hint.

ebrown2 on March 16, 2010 at 11:09 AM

Did she mention in the interview with GQ if “silky pony” manscapes or what? I’ll be it’s parted down the middle and slightly featherd to one side.

Sorry, just had to ask!

milwife88 on March 16, 2010 at 11:15 AM

You know, this has got to be, without question, quite possibly the most shameless slut I have ever seen claw her way into the spotlight!

She has provocative pictures taken of herself, and then turns out after they are published to condemn them?!!!

No wonder Silky Pony latched himself to this loser! She is a complete airhead!

pilamaye on March 16, 2010 at 11:20 AM

Two words: “Quiet Dignity”

Pervygrin on March 16, 2010 at 11:22 AM

Tanya,

Yes. Escort Service Ads. Hammer, nail, etc. Rielle Hunter has been known as a nutty moonbat party ho for a long, long time.

And Elizabeth Edwards’ cancer must be the really convenient kind, sort of like the Lockerbie bomber’s. No one I’ve ever known personally has had this particular type.

di butler on March 16, 2010 at 11:36 AM

Is there any consensus on how to pronounce her name?

Ree – ell ?

Rye – lee ?

Ree – lee ?

Slut – ho ?

rockbend on March 16, 2010 at 11:40 AM

Note to Edwards: Next time you want to have anonymous sex with a stank-whore, wear protection!

Claypigeon on March 16, 2010 at 12:06 PM

He was always very gracious about it. And always said that he would support whatever decision I made.

So gracious, he denied paternity for…what? Almost two years?

There is nothing remarkable about her that makes you remember what she looks like when compared to somebody like Morena Baccarin or Angelina Jolie.

Hawthorne on March 16, 2010 at 7:53 AM

Even as a straight woman, I have no problem saying Morena Baccarin is smokin’ hot.

lonesome_pine on March 16, 2010 at 12:23 PM

And yet, somehow, the finished product didn’t quite capture that element of class she was going for.

She new he was married and rich. She had sex with him the first day she met him. She has no class. Whatever pose she strikes for the photographer will not change that.

And I find it interesting that my daughter thought that would be a good time to come into the world. That daddy was running for president and married to someone else. “Gee, I think now’s the perfect time.” There’s something to be said for divine timing…

I find it interesting that she new he was married and did not hesitate to have sex with him. That the sex was unprotected seems to speak to her motive.

Let’s hope and pray that the daughter does not follow in her mother’s footsteps.

rukiddingme on March 16, 2010 at 12:38 PM

Rielle to be AP’s new unrequited crush?

wildcat84 on March 16, 2010 at 12:52 PM

What a total scum bag Edwards is. It’s no surprize he was such a hit with the lefties.

Buckle up, with welfare babies being a cash crop on the vote farm coupled with amnesty, the trough sloppers will continue to flood the voting pool and eventually vote themselves access the treasury at will untill the gig is up.

I see it as inevitable at this point. The government has been shoving money to the welfare class for decades, and it’s just making it bigger and not improving anything. I believe it is making the problem far worse. If you pay people to be useless and helpless, that is what they will be. Perfect for expanding the democrat vote farm and managing the government livestock to insure political power.

It is criminal at best.

saiga on March 16, 2010 at 1:11 PM

CTpatriotgirl on March 16, 2010 at 1:31 PM

A definite two-bagger: one for her head, and one for yours in case hers falls off.

Akzed on March 16, 2010 at 2:18 PM

The man who almost became Vice President

1 Cheated on wife dying of cancer
2 His mistress is an airhead who makes even Paula Jones look pretty.
3 His secretary (and possible boyfriend) tried to take the rap and falsely admit that he and not Edwards fathered the love child.

Yet even Edwards may have been an improvement over “the best way to get out of debt is to spend more money” and “we will not allow Iran to build nuclear weapons” Joe Biden.

MaiDee on March 16, 2010 at 2:24 PM

Why do all these politicians seem to go for just barely ‘not ugly’ tacky (forgive the term) ‘trailer-trashy’ looking types?

Were I a big hotshot, I’d set my sights a bit higher. Either ‘Jessica Alba level’ beauty. or polished elegance and class.

LegendHasIt on March 16, 2010 at 2:31 PM

Are they all just stupid? I mean is the left simply filled with liars, silly buffoons, and stupid people? Of course being photographed lounging around like a two bit trollop is going to make you look…well.. like a two bit trollop.

In what world does she live? Seriously, and Edwards jumped on that? Never mind, of course he did. The only women he would attract are silly stupid women who live in another reality.

Duh. Sorry. Never mind.. Idiots. Should be allowed to operate machinery idiots.

archer52 on March 16, 2010 at 2:32 PM

I have no empathy at all for the woman. She knew darn well what she was doing when she allowed the photos to be taken. The next thing you know she will be posing for Playboy like John Jenrette’s mistress.

SC.Charlie on March 16, 2010 at 2:57 PM

I thought even before this latest pile of stupidity – Is John Edwards on suicide watch?

Just exactly where is the boundary of his sociopathic behavior?

gonnjos on March 16, 2010 at 3:33 PM

I am no fan of John Edwards, to say the least, but, based on reviewing these pics of his baby mama, I think he should get himself checked out by a doctor.

Penicillin can’t cure everything.

Look at Al Capone and Freddy Mercury.

molonlabe28 on March 16, 2010 at 5:02 PM

How is Ms. Edwards holding up with that cancer?
