Shame on Me But I Cannot Stop Reading the Train Wreck that is Rielle Hunter

16 March 2010 at 3:14:31 PM

Oh, I tried. I told my better self that all this sensationalism only encourages the Corporate Media to do MORE of it. And I don't give a hoot about most of that stuff. But This? For me, it's like Get the Popcorn, I'm settling in to READ THIS DIRT!

First up, I voted for John Edwards in the 2004 primary when John Kerry was already the candidate and the timing of the Texas primary sneered at my efforts to have my vote count. First time I saw him I thought he was not a polished speaker and kind of dumb. But he had grown on me and I wasn't a fan of John Kerry's at that point. (I don't even think John Edwards is tnat great looking so I didn't vote for him on his looks. Heck if I remember now WHY I DID, though). Even in the 2008 election, I considered voting for him; my first choice was Dennis K. I admired his wife very much as well, but thought he seemed like he was getting very snippy and grumpy as time wore on.

I don't have to recap what started coming out about John Edwards, but what did it for me was the revelation that he was screwing this skanky woman and his WIFE HAD CANCER. Ugh. Ugh. Ugh. That tells you a lot about someone's character. And when all the other stuff started rolling out, like somebody emptying an outhouse at the top of a hill, I still tried not to read too much about it.

But, heh, this Rielle Hunter in GQ is frigging ENTERTAINING. She is as dumb as a post and apparently the only person left on the planet who not only sees something good in John Edwards but thinks, heh, that despite the fact that he lied to everyone else in the world, he DOES NOT LIE TO HER. Think he will like it that she spilled her guts about him in the mag? I doubt it. Unless he's dumber than I already thought he was. Oh, wait. He did a sex video with her that is out in the public eye right now-I guess he is DUMBER THAN Rielle Hunter

When I first looked at GQ, yesterday, i only looked mainly at the pictures that Hunter took and wondered why she wanted to look like such a tramp and bad mom. So, TODAY, she boo-hoos on a tv show that she Didn't Know These Pics Would Be Like that, She Thought They would just  be headshots. Love the reaction from the photog

And this.

It's kind of hard to claim you only thought a magazine was doing headshots when you're sitting in a pile of stuffed animals without pants on. Which raises another question: Why the hell are you being photographed in your child's bedroom without pants on? That didn't raise any red flags at all? Granted, I haven't read a Good Housekeeping in years, so maybe that's how shit rolls now. Except I have a feeling it doesn't and this was entirely Rielle Hunter's idea because she thinks allusions to child porn will somehow win John Edward's hand in marriage. Stop me if I'm getting warm.

Yeah. Bwahahahahahahahahahah,. Here are some of my favorite parts (you have to read them and imagine me rolling my eyes).

  • You haven't uttered a word so far. Why now? 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. (UNTIL NOW!!!)
  • And then I came over to the table, and I said, "I can't believe that was John Edwards; he's so hot. He's really got it going on. He's got something unusual about him, and I never would have recognized him." And Tony said, "Oh, my God, you should have come over and told him that. He would have loved to have heard that.".....The "You're so hot" line was one of those things, when Elizabeth did her book tour, that she seemed very appalled by. Look, I could have said A, B, C, D, and E. [laughs] It didn't matter. And it's funny, because the only reason I said, "You're so hot" is because Tony said, "Oh, he would love to have heard that." And he did love it.
  • A hidden life, when it is exposed, is a traumatic event for the person going through it. And they're not in their right mind. Anyone going through that should never speak publicly. And what they say, if they do speak publicly, should be forgiven. (LIKE I HOPE JOHN EDWARDS WILL FORGIVE ME WHEN HE READS THIS TRIPE)
  • And you knew that in the first few seconds? Upon sight. So I called him about a half hour later. And I got a voice mail in the room, so I hung up. Did not leave a message. Because I did not know what was appropriate. I knew he was married, and I didn't know if his wife was with him, you know; I didn't know what was appropriate. And this was not—there was no sexual intention here at all.......And, um, I eventually walked over to his side of the room. [laughs] He was pretty relentless. And that's all I'm gonna say on that! Now fade to black! (Yuh-huh. You get the man's number, you call him, you go to his hotel room, you stay there and screw him.... Skanka, Please.)
  • Do you feel bad for her at all? 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.(Right. And you're no homewrecker either. Just an innocent bystander.I'm sure Elizabeth Edwrads really appreciates your compassion).
  • So Elizabeth's cancer comes back in March. When do you think you got pregnant? Quinn was conceived in May, and I knew in July.

    And on July 30, John and Elizabeth renewed their wedding vows. What was that like for you? Um… it was challenging. When you're in love with someone who takes actions that go against your belief system, it's extremely challenging to continue loving, instead of becoming righteous and judgmental. (Belief System. Heh. What would that be?)
  • You know, there have been so many accounts that I "targeted" him and that I went after him because of all the stuff that he was. That's not true. If Johnny was working at a gas station, I would still be in love with him.
  • Did you and Johnny ever talk about wedding plans? No. To date [laughs], we have not spoken about any wedding plans. (AND YOU PROBABLY NEVER WILL, SISTER! )

I also have to wonder if she told John Edwards she was doing this. Maybe she's mad because he's on to some other toots to screw and is getting revenge. Why else in the world would you do that interview? Unless you wanted to give multiple hearty laughs and leave a legacy of showing what a tart you are to your child.

I guess I'll read about this a few days more, if only to see if John Edwards is stupid enough to make a comment about the GQ article or maybe Elizabeth Edwards. Or maybe Hunter will want to boo-hoo on some other show about how misunderstood she is that she said this stuff and posed without her pants on in a bed with her kid's stuffed animals. Because I have more popcorn to pop.,

P.S. The woman supposedly is a videographer. A VIDEOGRAPHER. And yet she didn't know that her pictures with baby toys and PANTLESS was not a good thing, as if she's clueless about cameras.

But it must be a "nice" reprieve for Edwards to be with someone like Rielle Hunter who seems to worship him unconditionally.  Certainly his former wife would slap him silly for things he did and continues to do.

Anyway, Vote for Congressman Ron Paul!

I don't care what anyone says about Paul.  I find I agree with him 94 percent of the time and he is a Republican.  Certainly much more intelligent and truthful than most.

I supported him last time in the primary and would do so again.

Heh. Nice segue into Ron Paul. Who doesn't have anyone like Rielle Hunter in his life and no cancer-ridden wife to smack him around. My brother would agree with you.

I, too, appreciate Ron Paul, particularly his understanding of economics and anti-imperialist perspective.

Most Americans don't know anything about Ron Paul.  The majority of Texans probably don't either.

So, if anyone is interested in learning more about Paul and how he stands on the issues (and has for many years), you may click on this link or cut and past, and scour his web site:
