Mean Betty on Rielle Hunter
The classy spread in GQ, the sex tape details … Rielle Hunter is taking the world by storm!
Mean Betty understands that, at a certain point, there’s no need to make fun of or express dismay with certain celebrities because they do all the work for you. But, although Rielle Hunter, famed “other woman,” does a marvelous job making a spectacle out of herself in the latest GQ all on her own, Mean Betty simply couldn’t help but comment. That is, once Mean Betty recuperated from being absolutely struck dumb with astonishment – yes, kittens, even Mean Betty still gets surprised now and then by the antics of her fellow humans.
Mean Betty has to hand it to Rielle. Giving a tell-all to a glossy men’s mag is one thing; posing for seductive photo spread using your child (Mean Betty doesn’t think it’s fair to keep calling baby Frances Quinn a “love child” – the poor thing is going to learn to read one day, alas) as a photo prop? Well, that’s a stroke of class-A brilliance!
Apparently, after seeing the photos that accompany her interview, Rielle had second thoughts. On The View, Barbara Walters recounted a phone call she made to Rielle – apparently John Edwards‘s former mistress was “in tears” and “found the photographs repulsive.” Babs says, “When I asked if that was the case, why did she pose the way she did … she said she trusted Mark Seliger, whom she said is a brilliant photographer, and quote, ‘I went with the flow.’ ” Rielle, it seems, thought that they’d only use maybe ONE of the sexy photos and use a bunch of the other, more clothed shots. Because, apparently, she has never before seen a copy of GQ. “She cried for two hours,” Walters said.
The interview is really a thing to behold—you must read it for yourself. But a few of the highlights:
“He in fact did say to me the first night, ‘Falling in love with you could really [screw] up my plans for becoming President.’ And of course I said, ‘If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.’”
Hahahahaha! Isn’t that hilarious?!
“I had this thing in my head like a lot of women, where you want your man to stand up on a cliff and scream, ‘I LOVE HER.’ You know, the knight in shining armor. And that wasn’t what was going on.”
That’s right – because HE WAS MARRIED.
