John Edwards’ mistress and the mother of his love-child, Rielle Hunter, cried to Barbara Walters yesterday that she’s repulsed by her GQ photoshoot (above) and claimed she thought they were only going to use headshots. This prompted GQ reporter Lisa DePaulo to go on today’s Good Morning America and essentially say “You’re fucking kidding me, right?”:
“Did she say she thought they would be headshots?” GQ reporter Lisa DePaulo asked incredulously on “Good Morning America.”
“Rielle is a smart woman. She knows what she wore and what she was doing in the photo shoot,” DePaulo said.
Hunter, a one-time videographer for Edwards’ presidential campaign, posed for the pictures wearing only a man’s button down white shirt, a string of pearls and panties. In some of the photos she is posed on a bed with stuffed animals piled around her. Her panties are peeking out in one frame.
But GQ released a video of the shoot to “GMA” today and at one point the videographer asks Hunter, “You want to take a look at 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.
