Elizabeth Edwards will not want to read the April issue of GQ magazine! In it, her estranged husband John Edwards’ mistress, Rielle Hunter, 45, bares her body and the secrets of her romance with the then-presidential candidate.
To add insult to injury, Hunter also accuses her terminally ill nemesis, Elizabeth, who was married to John for over 30 years of “pummeling” John repeatedly, and then poses lying in bed with her 2 year-old daughter, Frances Quinn, who John recently publicly acknowledged as his own.
You have to hand it to GQ for persuading Hunter — who has said nothing publicly about her affair with Edwards, 56, until now — for getting her to spill the beans , as well as for having her pose half-naked, reclining on a bed ,”other woman” style!”
Here’s the bombshell revelations made by Rielle:
They Had Sex The First Night They Met After He Pursued Her: After slipping one of his aides her business card at The Regency Hotel in NYC on Feb 21, 2006, Edwards “bumped into her” outside where “he lit up like a Christmas tree,” according to Rielle, who says she told him, “You’re so hot!”. Edwards, she says, invited her to his hotel room that night where he beckoned her, “Come closer, I won’t bite! you.” “There was so much attraction…. and I eventually walked over to his side of the room. He was pretty relentless.”
They Plunged Into a Full Head-On Affair and she was “head over heels in love”: Rielle reveals that for the next four days after the pair met” we talked on the phone almost every night for four hours”.
She helped Edwards hide the affair from Elizabeth: Rielle bought a second cellphone for Edwards — identical to his first one — for her to call him on. But Elizabeth discovered the second phone, and dialed Rielle, who answered by saying “Hey, baby.” Elizabeth, 60, confronted John and he confessed. to the affair.
She believes Edwards hoped she would have an abortion:After she discovered she was pregnant with Frances Quinn, she says, “On some level, he was hoping I would get an abortion. He wasn’t happy with the timing. Which was understandable. He was married and running for president.” (Well, ye-ahh!)
She blames Elizabeth for Edwards Biggest Problems (though wouldn’t that be his affair?) And claims she was abusive : “Most of his mistakes or errors in judgement, were because of his fear of the wrath of Elizabeth….And you know, the wrath of Elizabth is a mighty wrath.” She claims that Elizabeth was routinely abusive to Edwards and that he could not go to his wife and say ‘ We have an issue’. Because he would be pummeled.”
She says she and Edwards are still in love: “We love each other very much,” she tells GQ. “And that hasn’t changed, and I do believe that will be till death do us part.”
Well John Edwards, seems you have a lot more ‘splaining to do — if not to your estranged wife, then to your now four children, who will one day really want to know why you threw away your chance to be president, to have a hot affair with a blonde blabbermouth.
