    Maybe you can ask her why she feels it is her place to portray Elizabeth in a negative way, per I am sure Johnny's opinion, in her book. I think if I found out my husband was cheating on me, I would not always be perfect at home, as obviously Johnny or his mistress proved they are no angels either.

      Has anyone asked Rielle if she considered how the book would affect John's other daughter? How narcissistic and inconsiderate to write a 'tell all' - talk about throwing salt in the wounds of john's "other" children. If John was willing to stay with her after this move, he is the biggest sucker on earth. Please don't buy her's all part of her master plan to be rich and relevant at any cost...

    • Dont buy the book

      She is trying to make money using people that she already caused pain.
      The only reality about this woman is that she slept with the husband of a woman who was dying of cancer.

      DON'T BUY THE BOOK....She can make money as an escort. If she find another idiot as John.

        Those who are enticed by such "women" are self centered obnoxious and downright evil..that's what....plain and simple. I truly hope people like JE think 100 times before they take their leap to their spiritual deaths.

      You think she's hot? Wow, I guess it's a masculine point of view. I think she is a revolting cheap pos. That does not leave Edwards off the hook. People that think she broke up the marriage are dead wrong. Edwards broke up the marriage and ruined his career over this creep.

    I agree with ConanB that everyone deserves a second chance. Some people are so quick to judge and they don't know what went on in that marriage all those years. Rielle has the most beautiful eyes. I am looking very forward to the interview on Piers Morgan tonight. I hope he will be kinder to her than the women on "The Talk" were today.

      Why should Piers be kind to her? He's a journalist, she's a money grubbing tramp. I hope he's done his homework and questions her on every sordid thing she said and did. "the most beautiful eyes"- you have got to be joking.

        You're right. Rielle Hunter is a tramp. Who cares whether she's got nice eyes? What's that got to do with it? I think the smirk on her face is more important as she tells one lie after another. I hope she gets what she deserves. All she's worried about now is selling her book and hoping that support payments for her child keep coming in. Piers Morgan did a great job tonight.

      I saw the interview on the Talk and the women were extraordinarily kind to Rielle. They could have, and possibly should have been much tougher on her regarding her motives.

      Whatever was going on in that marriage all those years was between John and Elizabeth. If John was not happy, he should have divorced Elizabeth before starting an affair with Rielle or any other woman. If Rielle had any respect for herself or Elizabeth, she would not have have the affair in the first place.

    Not only did someone publish a book by this (expletive deleted), you are going to give her air time on CNN Another ratings disaster. is this all you can get these days? If so fold your tent and steal away into the night. Why don't you get John Edwards on to explain why he is a feather duster .

    This show is swirling the drain.She has absolutely no shame. To write a book and give interviews is in such bad taste. In my opinion Edwards and Hunter are two narcissist that deserve each other.

    Piers, Please, if you have to interview this delusional narcissist make sure you call her out on all her inane excuses for her behavior. She has shown no respect, love, or concern for the young Edwards' children. They are taunted at school because of her and their father. Elizabeth Edwards died a much quicker death due to their selfish, tawdry behavior. When will this country stop rewarding bad behavior? Take a look at any message board to see what the public really thinks of her.

    Great interview. I think you uncovered alot about this woman. I don't think she is a very credible person. I think your line of questioning has casted a shadow on the efficacy of the book. She states John Edwards told her about his wife. I would not believe what John Edwards had said to her and publish it. Very rarely watch CNN-i usually watch Fox News; however, this was a high moment for CNN-good interview.

      I so agree with you, Piers was so frustrated that I could not stand watching him, a real disaster tonight! Questions he asked Rielle was so riduculous, he should have done better or get John Edwards on the show, will Piers be as tough with him too!!!
      Also, a note to take for CNN, try to do better with your show because I do not find Piers good at all, he is losing it and
      I am not interested in this show anymore,

    I am thoroughly enjoying this interview. Piers has become such a good interviewer - I think that she was under the impression that she wouldn't be in the hot seat!

    Regarding the previous comment about hurting the Edwards children. Do you honestly think that they have not been hurt already by their father's complete disregard for his wife who was dying of cancer! Jerk #1

    PS. Pier's you've done the "Old Country" well.

    From now on we have to call her by her real name which is Lisa Jo Druck.

    This will probably never get read by anyone who cares... I really enjoy Piers program although last nights interview with Rielle was excruciating. I left the progam a couple times... Rielle can't carry on a conversation or answer questions.. She was pathetic; which brings me to the question "who wrote her book" It's obvious she has no idea how to express herself.. Very painful interview to say the least.

    I CRINGED during the entire interview. This woman is the EPITOME of AMORAL. I thought Rielle could not portray herself worse than she already did – but Pier's did an excellent job of exposing her to her most basis level – EVIL – lacking in Sympathy -Empathy – or Compassion for another human being. If she really loved JE – she would have NEVER done this. To denigrate a dead woman to make herself look better (whether it is true or not) – and make money from it – is BEYOND evil and self-serving. How does she EXPECT a woman – upon hearing her husband of 30 years is having an affair – much less a baby – to act or feel. The pain EE endured over this is equivalent to the loss of her son. And all the while battling TERMINAL cancer.

    Rielle really comes across as STUPID – DUMB – CLUELESS – AMORAL and EVIL. She is truly a woman SCORNED!! I really feel for ALL the children. Because of Rielle's action – those children will face even more turmoil and pain in their lives. The ONLY way JE can possibly redeem himself (even a little) is to leave this sorry excuse for a human being (not even a woman) alone. May God be with them and grant them PEACE from the total destruction this person – by her actions alone – has caused. I must now conclude than Rielle is MORE evil than JE.

    This entire story should be mandatory for all future politicians and high level executives, judges etc. DO NOT REPEAT this scenario. I 'sort of' feel sorry for Edwards in that he had no idea just how bad things could/would and do go only because of his choice to allow himself to stray from his marital commitments – that one mistake cost him EVERYTHING – his chance at the presidency, his marriage, his reputation, his career, his integrity, and now, even this less than ideal 'relationship'… it lost him RESPECT across the board. She did not really lose anything until now – and I don't think that is a huge loss for her anyway – she will always have a connection to him, his child, and regular monthly payments…. It is such a shame, really! No one wins!

    Piers – great interview – those two idiots deserve each other that's for sure. A roll in the hay the 1st night Rielle meets a man knowing full well who he is and current status running for President! That is stuck in STUPID – she has no decency! Sure would not want Rielle any where near those younger Edwards kids – Quinn will pay such a price. However, thanks go out to the oldest daughter of Elizabeth she does deserve a round of applause for standing up and being counted on behalf of her deceased mother. Her Dad has plenty of money but she stood loyal to Mom took – so not like the Gingrich girls who preferred the bucks just ignored their Mother! mts

    I saw the interview she gave on "The View" the other day. I believe she really did and still loves John. However, I think that writing bad things about a woman who is dead and can not defend herself is just wrong. She should think about Elizabeth's children. Even if the things she said about her are true (which they very well may be...none of us out there in blogsville knows for sure), those kids have already gone through the pain of losing their mother, and now having someone trash her in print is absolutely disgusting.

Being alive without the approaches to the problems you have fixed as a result of the article is a critical case, as well as the ones which may have negatively affected my entire career if I hadn't encountered your blog post. The knowledge and kindness in playing with every item was invaluable. I don't know what I would have done if I hadn't come upon such a solution like this.
