The women of “The View” are usually split on their opinions, but today they collectively ripped Rielle Hunter a new one!
Rielle is the same woman that had a love child with 2008 Presidential hopeful John Edwards while he was still married. His wife was battling breast cancer.
So, the media hasn’t painted a pretty picture of Rielle Hunter (is a pretty picture even possible?) and so she’s coming out about her relationship with John Edwards, because I don’t know, she wants to be famous, probably.
For starters, even though John cheated on his wife with Rielle, she told the ladies, “I’m a mom, I’m not a mistress. I’m not a big believer in infidelity.”
And then Whoopi Goldberg says how could she “trash a dead lady” and then added that it was a “crappy thing to do” and that it made her look “heartless.”
Also, in Rielle’s book, she claims that Barbara Walters screamed at her and bullied her when she turned down an interview with Barbara a few years ago in favor of Oprah. Barbara addresses this so-called screaming match with Rielle.
“I’ve made people cry,” Barbara said, “But I've never screamed.”
To which Rielle says, “I remember that differently. You were about to go away on vacation and you didn’t want to lose my interview before you went away on vacation. This is not the first time nor will it be the last that two people remember an event differently."
Let’s agree to disagree? I guess not. The rest of the women on "The View" all chimed in that Barbara never screams at anyone.
Finally, at the end of the show, since Rielle was pimping out her new book, “What Really Happened: John Edwards, Our Daughter and Me” the entire audience went home with a copy of her book.
Barbara told the studio audience, “Everyone is going home with a copy of her book. You can make your own judgment.”
And then Barbara ended the show with its usual sign-off of “Take some time to enjoy the view” before turning to Rielle and nearly scolding her, “You too.”
Well, not every guest is welcomed with open arms.
