Until recently the John Edwards affair-baby-scandal-gate has been driven by people who did not have extramarital sex with John Edwards: gossipy gossipmongers, obsessive aide Andrew Young, angry wife Elizabeth Edwards, lyin' mill-boy Edwards himself. The missing voice in all this has been, of course, Rielle Hunter herself.
Well guess what! Rielle has spoken, and spoken and spoken and spoken, in an interminable interview with GQ magazine. (She's even doing the "I posed for sexy photos and then they ran the sexy photos and how could this happen??" thing.)
In case you couldn't make it to the end of Rielle's longwinded, navel-gazing tales of her relationship with Mr. Big, here's how it ends…
Don't you want the fairy-tale ending?
I want whatever life brings me.
Okay, so I know this might be a chick question, but did you know that very first night that you were something special to him?
I did know, yes. I did know the first night. We had an extraordinary night, and I did know that this was unlike anything either of us had ever experienced. And as we have all learned, that was accurate! [laughs] He in fact did say to me the first night, "Falling in love with you could really fuck up my plans for becoming President." And of course I said, "If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans."
What she forgot to say is "spoiler alert," because I am pretty sure this is exactly how the new Sex and the City movie ends, too.
