Rielle Hunter, the busted in the face blonde woman who had an affair with John Edwards when he was married and made sure she’d get herself knocked up, has given a heartless exclusive interview to GQ magazine.
I’m not exactly surprised by what Rielle says, but it is disappointing. Elizabeth has terminal bone cancer and Rielle says John Edwards pummeled her the first night they spent together (when they f*cked) and “Infidelity doesn’t happen in healthy marriages… That break happened two and a half decades before I got there. So the home was wrecked already.”
Okay, Rielle! Karma is not on your side. And guess what? The least of Elizabeth’s worries consist of her “taking responsibility” for her husband’s infidelity. She’s more concerned with making it another day on this earth.
Here’s another quote from Rielle: “Everyone talks about how Johnny has fallen from grace. In reality, he’s fallen to grace. He is integrated. He is living a life of truth. He has grown in awareness and humility.” Homewreckers all sound the same!
Check out Rielle’s shocking, heartless nonsense after the jump.
On Breaking Her Silence: “I feel comfortable talking now, because Johnny went public and made a statement admitting paternity. I didn’t feel like I could ever speak until he did that. Because had I spoken, I would have emasculated him. And I could not emasculate him…. He’s very supportive of me talking now….
“It’s been four years. It’s hard to know that people are out there speaking over and over and over again untruths. Lies. Consciously going out there and spinning the truth. Using me and Johnny and our relationship to make themselves look better, to play victim, or to get money.”
On Their First Night Together: “I had never experienced anything like what was flowing between us. I sat on the other side of the room. I wouldn’t go near him….There was sooo much attraction and sooo much…I want to say love, but it wasn’t love at that point…it was just this, this magnetic force field like I had never experienced. It terrified me. And, um, I eventually walked over to his side of the room. [laughs] He was pretty relentless.”
On His Marriage Woes: “Well, I was aware of it from the get-go. He doesn’t lie to me…and well, first of all, infidelity doesn’t happen in healthy marriages. The break in the marriage happens before the infidelity. And that break happened, you know, two and a half decades before I got there. So the home was wrecked already. I was not the Home Wrecker.”
Thinking Edwards Won’t Lie to Her: “He’s not afraid of me. He’ll tell me anything and everything…. He has no fear that I’m going to abuse him. And I believe what happened in his marriage is, he could not go to his wife and say, ‘We have an issue.’ Because he would be pummeled…. Most of his mistakes or errors in judgment were because of his fear of the wrath of Elizabeth…. And you know, the wrath of Elizabeth is a mighty wrath.”
On Elizabeth Edwards: “Oh, my God, I have such compassion for her. I really do. I mean, especially when you have terminal cancer… I watched my father die of cancer. It’s heart-wrenching to me. But it’s also really sad to me, her unwillingness to take responsibility for her part in the marriage.”
On how John feels about her and vice versa: “I know he loves me. I have never had any doubt at all about that. We love each other very much. And that hasn’t changed, and I believe that will be till death do us part. The love doesn’t go away. It’s unconditional. I do know that I will love him and that love is till death do us part, and probably beyond.”
On the benefits of John leaving Elizabeth: “And he’s a great father. Once Johnny and Elizabeth separated, we were able to move forward quite quickly. And it has to do with him not hiding in order to see his daughter. He very much wants to be in her life full-time, and he doesn’t want to hide.”
