It just gets worse for John Edwards, doesn’t it? First he got busted cheating on his wife and siring a love child. Then his mistress Rielle Hunter, with whom he made a sex tape, turned out to be cuckoo bananas. And now the family of the woman whose presidential campaign donation he allegedly used to financially support Hunter allegedly turned him away from her funeral. Page Six reports that the family of heiress Bunny Mellon, who donated $700,000 to the Edwards campaign in 2008, were none too pleased when Edwards and his adult daughter Cate showed up to her recent funeral in Virginia. “He was barred from entering,” the gossip page reports, citing NY Social Diary blogger David Patrick Columbia. After he was turned away, Edwards and his daughter watched the funeral onscreen with the “overflow crowd” at a nearby location. He then showed up at the cemetery and “was working the crowd near the graveside after the service,” according to Columbia. While there may be a bit of editorializing on the gossip reporters’ part, do any of us have a difficult time imagining John Edwards fielding dirty looks while he hobnobs with a bunch of old rich folks dressed in black?

At long last, John Edwards‘ mistress has spoken! Rielle Hunter gave her first-ever interview to Lisa DePaulo at GQ, jam-packed with quotes she’s gonna regret: about when they first met (“There was an instant and odd connection that we both felt.”), her weird ideas on gender roles (“I could not emasculate him!”), and even about their daughter, Quinn (“She was conceived in love. She is a love child.”) And, of course, the sex tape.
Hoo boy. The biggest shocker? Rielle Hunter is about 10 times more hippy-dippy-doodle than you can even imagine. She says things like, “We’re all slaves to our unconscious” and “The force field of our love overrode any issues that would arise from my belief systems.” And her business card reads “RIELLE HUNTER. BEING IS FREE.”
Yeah, seriously. After the jump, let’s wade through the muck and sludge that is Rielle Hunter’s interview with GQ: Keep reading »

Oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no. Two sources tell Gawker that during their affair, John Edwards and his mistress, Rielle Hunter, allegedly filmed a sex tape that contains “several sex acts.” Allegedly, Hunter is behind the camera at the beginning of it. Apparently Andrew Young, a former aide of Edwards’ who is publishing a tell-all book next month, is the one who found the sex tape at Hunter’s house.
Gawker hasn’t actually seen the alleged sex tape, so take this rumor with a grain of salt. But remember, Edwards admitted that he is the father of a love child, Frances Quinn, with Hunter, after denying it for two years.
Yuck. We’ve said it before, we’ll say it again: poor Elizabeth! [Gawker] Keep reading »
