Was GQ the best medium for Rielle Hunter to tell her story?

For more than two years after Rielle Hunter emerged at the center of the John Edwards love-child scandal, the former campaign videographer kept quiet -- while Edwards denied fathering her daughter (before finally acknowledging it); while Elizabeth Edwards wrote a book describing her as an aggressive homewrecker; while campaign aide Andrew Young wrote one describing her as a loony, needy loose cannon.

Now, though, she's talking, in an extensive new GQ interview obtained by The Washington Post. It's a doozy. Read the full article.

Heck, as a woman who belives in freedom of being I *always* take off my pants and do interviews with men's magazines when I want to be taken seriously. It's the best way to hook another big fish (although next time I'll use 100 lb monofilament.)

C'mon, NO voters, this was the perfect venue for her interview. If you read the article, it was not made for Time or the Post. Penthouse might have been another good choice.

In a way, it was the best venue for her. It is the waters in which she chooses to swim. In case no one got it before, we see her as what she is: someone who views her sexuality as her greatest asset. Rather pathetic, though, to witness this aging, air-brushed, idiot on display.

Yes if her goal is to show herself off as a porn star (just look at her poses). Certainly yes if her intent was to make money off her 15 mins of fame and not to be taken seriously in any way shape or form.

As for living in a rental versus in the home bought for her to live in? You can`t afford it? Well Lady. Go get a job so you can afford to live in that house. And by the way, what are you doing with the support payments above and beyond the house? Does not sound like you are using it for your child.

If she is unwilling or unable to do so then dirtbag daddy (who I also have zero respect for) should seek custody of the toddler. At least he can afford the child and hire a nanny to watch out over the child.

I agree with another post does this disgusting woman need to take her clothes off for an interview.She is trying to look like a 20 something when she is nearly a 50 something.And really no one wants to hear her or John's story they need to just go away it's old news and we have more important things going on in the country that can change our lives forever their story is just another sex scandal and we got over that with Clinton.

This piece of trash is the female equivalent of a rapist. She evidently set her sights on an easy life and/or 15 minutes of fame and John Edwards, stupid jerk that he is, fell for it. But Elizabeth and the children are innocent victims here, collateral damage hurt by this parasite, this tramp, this subhuman vermin. The real disgrace, though, is how the Post would care to carry a story featuring this sexual predator, how even GQ would give some piece of filth with the mindset of a pedophile any attention.

The other woman always wants to talk and try to tell their side of the story. He was married and you slept with him. End of story.

What news hounds and the suggestive pose in the pictures. I think they all are unethical and why do we need to know or here more!

She poses like a mistress.

Posing with her daughter in the photo is disgusting. She's abusing her child to sell herself. Rielle Hunter apparently is desperate.

Obviously the best 'medium' would have been the National Enquirer. Although photo quality is better in GQ. When's that video going up on youtube?

Am I the only one who considers Rielle artistic? I hope and pray that she wins custody of the video so that we can all relearn the joy of sex.

I think Rielle looks beautiful and her daughter is definitely John Edwards daughter - innocent and beautiful too. This woman was SEDUCED by a filthy, sleaze-ball who obviously is lying to her still, stringing her along - when really she was just a piece of tail for him - who he's thrown away like a used kleenex.

Do you all KNOW how many sleazy men are cheating on their wives these days and LYING to women - leading them on and making women think they are single (when they are secretly married) or unhappily married (when they have no plans to divorce their wives for the other woman?

People - have some compassion - this woman was HORRIBLY USED and now probably has no chance for love or support from another man - while SLEAZY, LECHEROUS, CREEP John Edwards is most likely dating and looking for another woman to usurp.

Nothing in society is WORSE than men who USE woman for sex and lie to them to string them along and get their way. Impregnating a woman, making her a single mother and then abandoning her and the child in need - is JUST egregious.

@ CHTISTY42... Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned!

Poor thing... sounds like you've been hurt, but give me a break. Impregnating a woman? It takes two to start a pregnancy and as far as we know, he didn't rape the "innocent" Ms. Hunter.

This woman knew exactly who John Edwards was when she slept with him. Sheesh... it was in all the papers! He was an extremely well-known married man with a wife (and children) who'd been battling cancer for years.

Notice how I made it through this post without using all caps.

Everyone who gets into fimmaking - gets into it to get laid.
