Rielle Hunter to Talk About "Johnny" Edwards on Oprah

by Brad Trechak, posted Apr 6th 2010 3:03PM
Rielle HunterLike so many other mistresses before her, Rielle Hunter will be appearing on a daytime talk show to discuss her side of the affair with former vice presidential candidate John Edwards. Wisely, Hunter decided to appear on the talk show of the Queen Mother of all the other talk shows: Oprah Winfrey.

Hunter has already had an interview with GQ Magazine that included some questionable photos that supposedly "had her in tears." Oprah managed to get the sought-after interview over other talk show hosts as Diane Sawyer and Barbara Walters. It is said that John Edwards encouraged her to go on Oprah's show (but that's from the National Enquirer, so treat it with the journalistic respect it deserves).

The saga of a mistress in politics is old as the hills. Ask people like Gary Hart and Bill Clinton about the subject (all the aforementioned are Democrats, but a list of Republican affairs could be named just as easily). As Oprah continues to nab high-profile interviews like this one, daytime syndicated television is seeing just how tough things are going to be without her.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck to Rielle Hunter: 'Put Your Pants On' (VIDEO)

It seems that Kermit the Frog, like Sarah Palin, can now count on staunch support from Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

On 'The View' (weekdays, syndicated), Hasselbeck loudly criticized Rielle Hunter for a revealing photo that appears in the April issue of GQ magazine. Hunter, who had an affair with politician John Edwards that resulted in a love child, poses with an array of stuffed children's characters while wearing a dress shirt and nothing else.

Oprah Lays Into Andrew Young About John Edwards Scandal (VIDEO)

Oprah Winfrey, Andrew Young, John EdwardsThe John Edwards scandal just gets better – or worse, depending on your perspective – by the minute. His former campaign aid Andrew Young appeared on 'Oprah Winfrey' (weekdays, syndicated) to talk about the scandal, as well as his book 'The Politician.'

Oprah Winfrey did not cut him any slack. "A lot of people would take a fall for people, but this, to me, was bigger than that," she said. "It wasn't just about taking a fall for John Edwards, it was about literally deceiving every American who was going to vote for him."

Young was definitely in an interesting situation. Where does his job leave off and his sense of moral duty to the country -- and Elizabeth Edwards -- begin?

Colbert, Clinton, Obama and Edwards take on Philadelphia - VIDEOS

What in the hell happened last night on The Colbert Report? Or perhaps I'm really wondering why I attended Monday's taping of TCR in Philadelphia and not the final and certainly most epic one.

In true Colbert fashion, TCR ended its four-night run in the City of Brotherly Love with a big ol' Democratic bang. Thanks to Chris Matthews' big mouth, the nation expected Hillary Clinton's "surprise" appearance, but little did we know both Barack Obama and John Edwards would be appearing as well... On the same night! Despite the fact that this was all a blatantly desperate attempt to get a little Colbert Bump action (Edwards knows it's too late, right? I mean, what with him dropping out of the race and all), there really is no better way to seem hip to that all-important youth vote.

A Daily Show: January 31, 2008

Jon StewartEveryone knows that CNN can be a bit of a sensory overload, especially with its fancy new floating pie charts and whatnot. The flashiness took a huge jump when Situation Room first came around and showed off its needlessly numerous screens. At least some fun finally came of it, in the form of a totally random mix-up during recent coverage of John Edward's concession. Apparently, dancing Spongebob Squarepants makes everything better. That's right, no context for you.

John OliverIn case you missed it, Jon made a very special appearance on The Colbert Report Tuesday night. The situation is already a bit confusing, and Jon's explanation of it didn't help much. Actually, don't even think about it too much. Just focus on the fact that Jon is a very tiny man. What he lacks in height, he makes up with well-played self-deprecation.

"Indecision 2008": Big news! John Edwards and Rudy Giuliani have both dropped from the race. Edwards fixed up his hair and delivered a speech to say good-bye and Giuliani, accompanied by his supporters and funny eyebrows, dropped out in Florida. He also got an earful from the media for putting all his eggs in the Florida basket, whatever that means.

The Daily Show: March 29, 2007 - VIDEO

Jon StewartFirst up, coverage of Karl Rove being, um, super-hip at the Radio-Television Correspondents' Dinner. "Let's say Jeffrey Dahmer came to your Bar Mitzvah and turned out to be a great dancer... He's still Jeffrey Dahmer." Oh, Brad Sherwood and Colin Mochrie... For even participating in this event, you two have disappointed me so. I think everyone should experience the horrid sight of MC Karl Rove bustin' a move, because after seeing it, all the sad things in life don't seem so bad anymore. As service to society, I have included the video in this post after the jump.
