Rielle Hunter on her affair with John Edwards: "Do you really think men cheat, for bad sex?"

Coming up tonight at 9 p.m. Piers Morgan welcomes Rielle Hunter for a candid face to face conversation, touching upon everything from her extramarital affair with John Edwards, to any remorse she has, or apologies she'd like to offer.

Joining "Piers Morgan Tonight" in her first cable interview, the 48-year-old reveals intimate details about her romantic relationship with the former North Carolina senator:

"You've made no secret of it, being the best sex of your life, have you?" asks Morgan.

"Do you really think men cheat, for bad sex?" she answers back.

Tune in this evening at 9 p.m. as the author of the new book, "What Really Happened: John Edwards, Our Daughter, and Me," Hunter opens up about Frances Quinn, the love child of her affair with the former presidential candidate.

    I love watching Piers, but could not watch Rielle Hunter tonight. I had seen her on ABC and she sickened me. I did not believe anything she said; she came across completely self-centered. Why does she need to insult John's family at this point? (John also is totally unbelievable, really fake).

      This is the 1st time I have ever responded on the Internet to anything on T.V. Piers, you did a wonderful job of holding this woman accountable. She came across as devoid of true empathy...I feel sorry for her daughter.

      I would not have usually watched an interview with Rielle, but just as I expected, she acted as if she were the injured bird when asked about the acts she outlined in her book. Her comment when shown a film clip of Edwards denying paternity of their child was "Oh great.", like this was somethng she did not expect to be discussed. Two faced and passive aggressive. Great interview questions by Piers. He did not play her softly. I think he was repulsed by Rielle like I was.

      How could he have been so awful to his wife when she was so sick? Why do we in America put these people on the news and on our talk shows. It is horrible. How can we allow someone so awful to be disrespectful to a woman like Elizabeth Edwards? "I am amazed and know not what to say." [Shakespeare]

      Rielle Hunter aka Lisa Jo Druck is a vapid, heartless woman. Here is a woman who first has an affair with a married man whose wife has terminal cancer. Then, after the wife has passed away, she publicly trashes her. How much pain and embarrassment is Rielle Hunter going to continue to inflict on the deceased wife's two small children and one adult child? Hasn't she done enough damage to this family?

      And ironically, Rielle Hunter claims John Edwards is not a "demon" yet proceeds to paint him out as a spineless man who can't stand up for himself and while cheating on his terminally ill wife, complained incessantly about how his wife was such a terrible person. WHO does that? John Edwards can forget about ever restoring his public image after the number Rielle Hunter has done on him with her book and interviews.

    I support Rielle and will pay money for her book. I think she is composed and very reasonable. John Edwards should have honored his marriage vows. Rielle just fell in love with a very hot and powerful man. How can you blame her? She is cute and single and can have her pick of any man...including Pierce Morgan I'm guessing? I think she is perfectly appropriate and give her my support and respect. God bless Elizabeth Edwards – John Edwards has had the privelege of relationships with good women.

      to all of you who think rielle hunter is honest, what world are you living in? She's a narcisist of the highest order who leaves damage everywhere she goes. She has the mentality of a 13 year old girl who thinks she's in love. This woman can't tell the truth because she has no idea what the truth is. And to those of you who buy the book, ugh. You have the lowest standards. You bought into this sickening woman's silliness. I'm so glad Piers was firm with her, he wasn't rude. Someone has to call her on her lies and illusions. What most people are saying about her is the truth. She's a tramp

      Seriously? This woman is totally devoid of a soul. She claims to be perfectly honest, when in fact she can't acknowledge her part in this whole sordid affair. I don't believe for one minute that she did not entrap him by getting pregnant. I wonder if she talks about birth control in the book. It's a sad state of affairs that this is even news.

      Rielle Hunter ruined this mans career. She clearly wanted to have him, his money and his support and did NOT care about his presidential ambitions.

      And for her to defame a dead woman who's heart was shattered is just hideous. Unbelievable.

    Does Rielle Hunter have no shame? I am disgusted with her continued poor behavior, profiting from what she has done. I am saddened at the thought of Elizabeth Edwards having to deal with the horrible affair during her final days. Both John Edward and Rielle Hunter are simply not good people. Rielle proves how much she does not care about the hurt and damage she has caused, instead of taking responsibility she has decided to write a book. My fellow ladies out there, don't be another woman's worst enemy! Have some self respect. If Rielle was truly sorry she would seek forgiveness and stay out of the media.

    Rielle Hunter absolutely shocked me with her interview tonight. Not only did she not take responsibility for her actions, but she has clearly shown how much of a "home wrecker" she is by her selfish actions and words. Her book is the biggest slap in the face towards Elizabeth Edwards, especially when all Ms. Hunter had to say was that Elizabeth's words about their affair, "made her sad". If Rielle Hunter were truly remorseful she would have not written a book that disgraces the Edwards children and their mother.

      I am shocked at how hostile the questioning is . I am no fan of this woman, her actions or book. I have watched Pierce interview many controversial figures and his approach in this interviewis angry and way out of balance. Rielle has answered some very difficult questions underscored by an interviewers apparent anger. I would have preferred to hear him that hostile toward Zimmermans brother when he interviewed him. Edwards and Rielle created the mess and John Edward made bad choices.

      Shame on Pierce. Not your best work mate.

    That was a terrible interview. What gives Piers Morgan the right to attack someone to give him a "good" interview. It felt very contentious and quite honestly she was in control....he certainly was not. There is a way to make your guest feel comfortable enough to share information...he just tried to back her into a corner and she was not going to give him anything. Obviously he knows nothing about strong women.... I think he was showing that he was angry???!!! What a joke. This was not his tragedy, it was theirs.

      How, in any way is Rielle Hunter strong? It doesn't take much strength to lie on your back and cheat on your husband. It does however, take a lot more to apologize which she hasn't done full heartedly. Do me, and the rest of society a favor and stop feeling bad for those who don't deserve it. Piers is the strong one for not putting up with Rielle's BS.

Also, pretty amazing how politicians can fool the public...even Presidential hopefuls like John Edwards. Peace to Elizabeth Edwards and her children.

    Piers what a cowardly display this interview was!

    I can't imagine you would be as tough on a man in the same situation. I'm remembering all of your puff ball interviews with Donald Trump. Would you have ever dreamed of asking him similar questions? You know like...considering your past relations do you think you are suitable material to be President. Or how about....did you ever fool around on any of your past wives? Or did you always wear protection? And then letting him get away with all that nonsense about Obama being an illegal.

    Oh yes you can be tough on smaller people but lack the honesty to question the powerful in the same manner. It's easy to sensitive with the powerful and easier still to attack the less powerful.
    being

    For the record I'd be fine with your tough interview if you were also tough on those you think powerful. As it is you just came off as a bully.

    Great disappointment and unfair.

    Rielle Hunter is painful to watch and a complete moron. And Piers, you missed your biggest opportunity – she said she doesn't believe in infidelity (re: her husband). She goes on to say that John's responsible for the affair; that she didn't go to his hotel room with any intention and yet hadn't she earlier said to him, "You're hot!"? And Piers, why didn't you look up fertility statistics at her age? The probablility of natural conception at 43 is less than 2%. I would hypothesize that she was trying hard to have his baby. I feel for her daughter – starting life with this gene pool is frightening.

    Watched (tried) her on the View, ended up shouting at the TV! Again she got the same response on tonight's interview, with the exception of what did come clear, and that is that the only reason she did her book and wanted to put the "truth"out there is on how HER daughter would have to deal with it in years to come. How sad that she did not consider Elisabeth's children! Disgusting couple!

    Brilliant interviewing. Rielle was a terrified deer looking into the headlights. She brought this on herself and is turning a quick profit out of the misery she caused. At least her consistently dishonest evasive responses confirmed the type of person she is. She is a walking role model of what not to do with your life. Very sad she caused pain to so many.

    Hope her story serves as a lesson in how your actions don't just affect your own life but the lives of loved ones and so many others. No matter how sorry she is the consequences for her choices will affect the Edwards children and their love child. Very sad. She and John are very selfish, self centered people. It seemed Piers had a hard time warming up to a very cold woman.

    What's truly amazing about this woman is that she keeps saying that she wrote this book so that the 'truth' could be told for her child and for the children of John and Elizabeth..... who is she fooling? Does she really believe for a moment that John and Elizabeth's children would believe that she is telling them the 'truth'? What a nut this woman is! All she's after is money and, sadly, she'll probably get lots of it from this sad tale.

    This was the most painful interview I have ever watched – I could have turned it off but I kept hoping something she said would a) be normal or b) she would walk off and do us all a favor. I can't imagine being Piers and trying to conduct an interview with someone so obviously unhappy about being interviewed – about what she had just written!!

      I understand why the media would find it a major story if Edwards were the fhater, but I don't really understand why you would.He's not running for anything, he hasn't been electing to anything, he represents no one, and he has no responsibilities to the American people. Beyond the tabloid sensationalism of it, why should we be talking about this?

    Piers gave a wonderful interview tonight, asking the right questions, but Rielle acted like a stupid kid, she couldn't answer anything he asked. She couldn't even say she was sorry, he had to keep asking. No wonder she is so despised by America, she's self centered and mean spirited. She calls it LOVE, but it's a meal ticket for her and in the end, my guess is John Edwards will end up with her. She has no sorrow for the misery she caused Elizabeth. It's all about Rielle. Because she is so evil, it makes her look ugly. She should stay off TV.

    Hunter appears a very stupid person. She is also a sociopath in that she doesn't see her part in the scandal that ruined multiple relationships. We saw this in 2 seconds of the interview. I hope Elizabeth is thinking of her great life and great jobs as atty. and mom, and speaking out for the poor in society, as well she has to think that the reliable Barack Obama was a great choice.

    I am a 70 year lady....and have been watching all the hype about Rielle Hunter. My only comment, is that, surely Piers Morgan, and The Talk, must have other more worthy news to talk about. This is essentially an old story, lived by many, and the fact that it deals with a presidential candidate, who, by the way, didn't make it.....is simply just another means of grabbing headline in the 9 o'clock slot for television viewing. Man, I wish that the USA would stop this nonsense and solve the problems of more global nature......I feel sorry for the young lady, she made mistakes, haven't you, Piers?, and yet none of the past mistakes of any of you, all members of the press, or anyone......never makes the front page....please, get on with the real problems of the day.....and stop judging others.

Is it because her father James Druck killed her horse Henry the Hawk for insurance money and she found her dead horse....is that why she has no respect for men or what they say at all , is that why she destroyed John Edward??? although he is just as guilty as anyone.more so ..he was the one married. I think she is menatally ill and should not have a child. ...but no one asks her about her past.

I think Mr. Edwards should be held to the higher standard. He was married!!! She was single!!! Does not make it right, but all people make mistakes. Pierce was trying to make headlines with gossip and junk reporting and Miss Hunter tried to keep him in check seeing she was there to talk about her book not to be dragged through the mud!!!. Please people get a grip and stop believing in all the hype you hear on radio and tv. Remember unless you think you are GOD like YOU cannot sit in judgment of anything or anyone.

    Thought Piers did a good interview, didn't back down from Rielle, a self
    -centerfed woman with an obvious personality disorder with borderline & narcissistic features. She found the right man to feed into her pathology. Of course, he has a similar pathology. How could we have thought he was someone who could lead this country? Thankfully his children with Elizabeth had her influence. God help little Quinn. No need to buy her book–why should she profit from her transgressions. Never written a comment before. So annoyed by Rielle & John, and sad I ever had hopes for him.

Too bad the book publisher sent her out on this book tour-given her age, she's immature and isn't ready for prime time. Wouldn't waste the money or time on this book. We all know what happened!

    Nobody knows what problems or difficulties that may have existed in Edward's marriage, the pressure of her illness, or the pressure of his candidacy. Marriage under those pressures has got to be really difficult and I think if Edward's children have been able to stand by him, the rest of us should get off of our high horse and give Edwards a little rhythm for being human. It doesn't surprise me that most of the negative comments about Ms. Hunter come from females because she is probably fairly threatening because she's pretty and in great shape!

        Trish4Real, you are only validating what Dan said by taking his statements personally. So what if he thinks that she is pretty? Does that make you ugly or something? He didn't say that women who were ugly didn't like her looks because she is pretty, he said that they felt jealous because she is pretty. I have see women, all of whom are attractive, behaving in the most vindictive ways towards other women that are also attractive. Women do that. Don't know what their reasons are for it; but it happens. Whatever the reasons are, they do nothing but cause contention outside of the woman or women from which the jealousy emanates and the taget of that jealousy. How does that make any sense or help any of the women feel attractive to the point that they could even recognize it if they were told they are attractive? I don't even like Piers and this woman is unimportant to me. What does bother me is that, as Dan said, when there is news coverage about a physically attractive woman, women commentors turn very evil. It doesn't matter if the news is positive or negative, the comments from a lot of the women are very very negative. How they dre, hair, make-up, body, you name it. It all becomes subject matter for heinous attacks. Don't get me started on the psych evaluations going around. Piers' interview with Janet Jackson got sort of disrespectful if you ask me. He tends to go into things that are just rude to dig at and he does dig and pry. John cheated with this girl, and she has a book and shows no remorse. I don't care how nice Edward's wife seemed on interviews. I really don't. None of that makes her a nice person, and like it or not, even with having cheated, what is John's wife's excuse for whatever lead to her husband's cheating because there are reasons for cheating to happen that come from both sides. I don't feel sympathetic to any party here; but this desire to jump in and choose sides is bothersome, and I see it revolving around exactly the topic that Dan talks about. Was he right to generalize like that? No; but...it does beg the question, why this kind of response from ladies? If it's trash on the tv that you are talking about, especially someone else's trash, why get worked up about it? She's not after your man. You are obviously not unnattractive and threatened by that thing with the blonde hair. So what's the problem?

He should have backed down a long time ago. Makes him look desperate for ratings.

She sat there and kept denying that she wrecked that marriage. She is 50% of the reason that marriage failed since it takes two to tango. All she had to do was woman up and say "I was part of the reason John divorced his wife and I'm ashamed of what I did" and people would have accepted that much better than pitiful excuses

      Katie, so I'm guessing you have been on the "other woman"side some time in your life OR you are the cheater.

      Bottom LINE is JOHN is responsible for ruining his marriage...HUNTER dove in without conscience or empathy for those who would be affected by her self serving and self gratifying behavior. SELF GRATIFYING is the MAIN ISSUE....

      Did no one notice every time Piers asked a direct question she shifted her eyes and paused when she didn't want to answer...always tough questions any NORMAL woman would be able to answer immediately?

      I have NEVER seen a person avoid, refuse to answer, shift in their skin at the thought of answering in my life.

      She KNEW he was married...

      She THOUGHT he would choose her over his wife....okay he did....

      TOO bad....in the end he apparently choose his children over her.

      Real justice would be the foolish contributors to his party sue her for their contributions. Oh wait...Johns covering her ass.

    Edwards needed her to shut up during the trial and stall for time on her book, so he acted like he still wanted her but continued hiding her. Didn't THAT clue her in? She was played all this time and still doesnt get it . Once the twin threats of jail and bad press from the book was over, he could throw her aside , and did . For as much as a pro as she thinks she is, he still has her beat in the sleaze department, but she's catching up fast.

    I agree with Victoria, and in addition feel that this was a totally disgusting interview and the worst I've ever seen Mr. Morgan conduct. His opinionated approach can be okay; but in this case he came across as extremely complacent and naive, as well as hypocritical. Under a barrage of smug, arrogant aggression against her from Morgan, Ms. Hunter conducted herself with remarkable poise and dignity – unlike Morgan himself. He was truly an insult to Mrs. Edwards' memory. Perhaps Mr. Morgan is perfect, with his job espousing family value$ to the American public from which he makes his fortune. Ms. Hunter admitted she is not perfect, but that was not enough for him in his salacious, tabloid zeal. I wish the excellent Ted Turner was still head of CNN – and that he'd get rid of such pious trash as Piers Morgan proved himself to be this evening.

Get a clue- because your an embarrassment to yourself. Get a divorce from your codependent obsession with drama & move to a better place, after all your the only person that can give yourself that gift. But therapy dude-seek it, you might actually then get the respect that you so arrogantly think you deserve.
    Anderson Cooper at least cares about the story & most importantly the human beings that are the story. Human compassion & empathy is part of the human being that Anderson is. Piers, you need training. Learn from Anderson & calm down from your ego driven self centered facade. You appear as having a bleak consciousness. Choosing an adversarial role will be a detriment to you, ultimately. Rielle Hunter is above you, in a better place than you, obviously. That's why she smiled even while you were cattle prodding her with the sensationalistic approach of questions.

    It is always the most self-anointedly "Christian" such as the divine Mr. Morgan, who lack humility and compassion most of all. The evil agnostic, who has no right to believe or disbelieve in the man-created "God", also has no right to such instant condemnations – and lack of even the most basic fellow-feeling. But the religious person KNOWS – and therefore condemns. They needn't indulge in the messy shades of grey compassion entails, since their God will always forgive them for any judgments of others. They are protected from anything by their sanctimonious "faith".

    A redeeming interview for Piers ! Keep up with that! If it's true that John & Reille have split up ... it's too bad
    Since they deserve each other !

    peirs, i have enjoyed your interviews up until now.
    i cannot, for a second forgive rielle – she has poor judgement and took advantage of a bad situation.
    BUT in this interview...you have disappointed me with your unecessary sensationlist approach.
    find the truth – but dont be an a**hole.

    An Inflated Self-Image – This woman has a highly inflated self-image because she is pretty. By the way, I think she has had a nose job on the front of her nose since GQ photographs revealed her knobby nose.

    Great interview! Ms. Hunter was very smug on the ABC interview, you pushed her Peirs!
    She is a "destroyer", it looks like her plan didn't work after all. Karma!

    To those who think you are superior to Ms. Hunter, you are no better than she. All of us have acted with poor judgement, hypocrisy, betrayal, insensitivity and deceit in some form.
    Those comments spewing such hatred, cruelty and moral superiority, reflect poorly on the poster.
    Ms. Hunter has not shown any of these ugly characteristics, to her credit. None of us are better than Ms. Hunter. We are all greatly flawed beings.

      Advice for a golddigger snikeeg the mother lode. When you get in really close, Honey, sharpen your spade and sink in in good and hard, because he's a greedy selfish lawyer. Let him make you an honest woman, instead of a just a grubby aging golddigger. The twin vices of an attorney, greed and narcissism, are also his weakness. Tell him how his beauty overwhelms your senses and together with you, he can return to more WEALTH and ACCLAIM. Watch his eyes glisten.

    Don't know why my thanks for Jordan's excellent post never appeared, so I'll try again... I also agree with Shawn and others that it's clear Piers and gang are trying to hog the hate-filled "Christian" spotlight away from Fox. It's all about ratings and money. He's certainly lost me as a former viewer and let's hope his smug sanctimonies, so very obviously hypocritical to any person with a working brain, loses far more.
    Perhaps Piers reads these posts as something to laugh at while "on his way to the bank", though I doubt he even cares that much.

      People often say someone was classy and dignified – after they're dead. Hunter handled herself well and Morgan behaved like the pompous pig-hypocrite he is. Good God, as though marriage is some great success!

AND her response to not using birth control.."we're adults" What kind of a response is that!!! She sounded totally unprepared for this interview! Maybe she should have read her book! haha

    I really like your style and most shows. This lady is just as bland as you can get. Here she is trying to sell a book that people are going to be thinking the really juicey details are in it. Well most points you bring up she don't want to discuss. Which you might want to mention to her that her sales will take a hit if she only wants to talk about taking walks or sweet phone calls with each other. They buy books to find out the good facts and how things really are. Well if she' not willing to tell them then the book must be a real bore. I would have like to try the book until seeing this. Now I want no part of it...This woman needs to open up and be totally honest with you.l With that being said I'm going to go now and listen to some Aerosmith and finish trimming my bathroom.. Keep up the good work my friend.

      Did we watch the same show? Piers hardly struggled, she did. The questions he asked were fairly obvious but after she had gotten so many bad reviews over the whirlwind of interviews pushing her book, she was extremely defensive. She came across as pathetic.

    No one will ever know or understand what brings people to leave their family obligations. But Pierce Morgan was in my opinion shamefully playing a member of the inquisition when interviewing Ms. Hunter and placing blame on her as having been the instrument in the brake-up of the marriage of John Edward's marriage. His facial expression was that of a parent admonishing his child for wrong doing. I believe that was shameful. CNN needs to be careful about keeping persons like Mr. Morgan who may not be a neutral and emotionally and intellectually stable as the CNN team needs to be to stay ahead of the the rest.

      Beautifully stated. Piers looked and acted like he had a personal stake in this . I felt more discomfort watching him than listening to Ms. Hunter. On a side note but equally disturbing, I have watched him interview "powerful" folks like Donald Trump and Piers would never approach The Don and others like him in the same way. Certainly, Donald has enough eye raising scandal in his life to warrant similar reaction from Piers as he considered a run for President?

      Shameful interview Piers. It maybe time for piers to head back to the Murdoch clan.

        Gee, I thought he did a great job in trying to interview this idiot...who didn't want to talk about what was in her book...! Crazy. I would have been frustrated too. I'm sure Piers would love to have had John Edwards on the show. PS. Don't think you can compare interviewing Trump with Hunter.

    Regardless of her Idiot or not status (I am no fan of rielle or John Edwards) From the moment he began the introduction of Hunter and through his line of questioning, his hostility was apparent. Real journalists who want the story do not go on the attack as the person you are interviewing will retreat. Even his facial expressions displayed disdain. Piers was admonishing and Parental acting like the judge and jury. He broke some fundamental laws of good journalism .... He became the story.

    Great points, Rocio and Patricia. Even if Morgan was an original personality, an interview show that's more about the interviewer ultimately serves little purpose beyond the vulgar self-aggrandizing he displayed. You're also right to point out that he does not behave that way to those "above" him. They are people with far more deviously cut-and-thrust tactics in their pasts, than a mere extra-marital affair – and without them, he wouldn't have a job.

    If there is one lesson to be learned from this affair, it is that no woman can be trusted to use birth control. Getting pregnant is no accident it is a plan to get money, it always is. We need good male BC.

      Half-Witt, there are other less bitter and more substantial lessons to be learned here and BTW, John could have used a condom. Last I heard, it was a very effective BC method for men.

    I think a man like this cheats because the woman he loves is sick and they already lost a child and he can't take the pain and looming mortality. A cheap flash in the groin reminds him he's alive. Reille, you just happened to be attached to that cheap flash in the groin; it's not that big a compliment. You get a hangnail, and he's glued to someone else like stink on a monkey. I pity your daughter, and pray she has the strength not to take cues from you.
