Rielle Hunter The View

Barbara confronted Rielle on June 26 after reading an accusation in Rielle’s book in which she claims Barbara yelled and screamed at her for not doing an interview back in 2010 — read on for the shocking details and to watch the video!

Barbara Walters wants to set the record straight. John Edwards infamous mistress Rielle Hunter took center stage on the June 26 episode of The View and it was an epic cat fight between Rielle and the longtime news woman.

Barbara told Rielle that she had a “bone to pick” with her when she read in the book What Really Happened: John Edwards, Our Daughter and Me. Because in the book it claims that Barbara yelled at Rielle when she told her that she wanted to do an interview with Oprah for spiritual reasons.

“I’ve made people cry,” Barbara said. “But never screamed.”

But Rielle stood her ground and said: “I remember that differently. You were about to go away on vacation and you didn’t want to lose my interview before you went away on vacation. This is not the first time nor will it be the last that two people remember an event differently.”

Meanwhile, we told you that Rielle revealed on GMA that she and John broke up last week.

Rielle, you knew that they were going to call you out as soon as you were on “The View” right? It’s unfortuate Cate,Emma,and Jack must hear you trash their deceased mother in your new trashy book. If you really cared at all about your daughter,John, and his other children you would have left Elizabeth out of it.Even if there were problems in the marriage before you came around, their marriage was none of your business to discuss in this book.They only fact BW was quizzing you on is the mention and bashing of Elizabeth in the book not so much about your affair with John.What goes around comes around Rielle!

I feel that this book was done to keep her name in the public and so she could make money. When asked why she wrote the book, Hunter said so her daughter could know the truth. Personally, I think a better way to tell your daughter the “sordid” truth of her parents’ behavior is to privately tell her when she is old enough to understand. Writing a book for all to read is ridiculous.

Hunter appearing on all the talk shows to sell her book was probably Edwards idea. Her new story to sell the book is all about her breakup with Edwards “they are no longer a couple”. This was no doubt Edwards idea too, she is not smart enough to come up with something like this. Both will enjoy money from the book sales.

only thing is, she doesn’t actually paint a very pretty picture of him in this book, either… i’m sure he’s happy that his daughter’s mom is going to be able to have some of her own spending cash- cuz lord knows what he’s living off of these days, but… i can’t imagine he’s happy about what’s being said in this book. maybe she initially sold it to him as something that was going to make him look good or that it was just going to tell a romantic love story— then, he realized the truth. i do think she’s got a personality disorder, so she doesn’t “get it”… but he’s just a db. no disorder. he gets it. and deserves it!

Well, I can’t believe anybody is giving this … woman the time of day, let alone air time! Doesn’t she have any sense of shame?

i mean, it’s clear she has no shame. i actually think she has a personality disorder… not sure which one, but i really think she must have one b/c she really doesn’t seem to get it.

Is this the same Barbara Walters who published in her book that she had an affair with a married senator? She is a joke and a hypocrite. I can’t imagine what his children and grandchildren felt reading that…of course, BW did not care about his family only book sales. She has no credibility.

ps- the very idea of saying bw has no credibility is LAUGHABLE. i mean seriously, could you say that out loud to a crowd of people and not have any of them laugh at you? umm… yah, no. the woman was basically 80 years old when she released that biography, and she let the 87 year old senator know before it came out. to not have respect for walters just shows ignorance and jealousy toward successful career women. i’m guessing you’re either a member of the senator’s family, or you’re a homemaker who has no idea the plight of the career woman even now, not to mention in barbara’s day.

Why in hell are the networks giving this woman any air time? She is just promoting her book. They invite her then they try to come across as tough by insulting her. Don’t give this woman one second of air time. I know the networks get viewers and ratings but don’t give this woman any opportunities so that she can go away. Networks are all about ratings and money.

Kiki, Barbara is no angel, she had an affair with a married Senator, so I’m not sure she’s any better.

many people have affairs, and they should not all be lumped together. barbara had an affair with a man and the man asked his wife for a divorce b/c he was in love- barbara convinced him to stay in his marriage and end their affair to save both of their careers. she was not a parasite looking for quick fame and an easy life by f’ing a presidential candidate, purposely getting pregnant while lying about birth control, and going along with a scheme that involved living for free off a wealthy donor’s money… and THEN, writing a tell all to try to extend the 15 minutes and get more ‘free’ living. this woman seems to have a serious personality disorder and is NO comparison to walters who had an affair, but knew it was a mistake and let go.

excuse me, how dare you? if you’ve got some facts to support this nonsense, share them. otherwise, shut it- as if you know anything about how she got to where she is in her career. she acknowledges the affair she had, and it wasn’t one that advanced her career— AND, she ended it and told the guy to save his marriage! get a life you bitter jaded old fool.
