Gossip: John Edwards, Rielle Hunter
John Edwards’ former mistress, Rielle Hunter, says she still loves “Johnny,” and hopes they will be together someday.
John Edwards’ former mistress, Rielle Hunter, says she still loves “Johnny,” and hopes they will be together someday. “I know he loves me,” Hunter says in a lengthy interview in GQ, which is accompanied by photos depicting her wearing only a men’s shirt. “That love doesn’t go away.” Hunter says that she felt “a magnetic force field” from the moment she met Edwards in New York City, and says she’s not “a stalker” or a “home wrecker,” insisting that his marriage was already broken. “Infidelity doesn’t happen in healthy marriages,” she says. It was Edwards’ fear of wife Elizabeth’s “mighty wrath” that caused him to lie, she says. Edwards now regularly sees his daughter, Frances Quinn, and is now “living a life of truth,” Hunter says. Rather than suffering a fall from grace, she says, Edwards has “fallen to grace.”
