Rielle Hunter Is John Edwards’ Girlfriend

December 7, 2010

Meet Rielle Hunter, a.k.a. Lisa Druck, the producer of John Edwards’ One America pre-presidential campaign films, and who was also his girlfriend who led to the marital breakup when Elizabeth Edwards found out. See her biography and photos here, as we morn the death of Elizabeth Edwards.

(The rest of this article was first published in 2008.)

The National Enquirer is reporting that John Edwards had an affair with a woman from his campaign, and that now there is a secret love child. And in the latest update, National Enquirer says they caught John Edwards red-handed visiting her in the Beverly Hilton hotel in Los Angeles, California. Read the story.

Rielle had driven to Los Angeles from Santa Barbara with a male friend for the rendezvous with Edwards. The former senator attended a press event Monday afternoon with L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa on the topic of how to combat homelessness.

The Inquirer says that when Edwards was confronted with reporters as he left Hunter’s room, he dashed around the hotel trying to hide, eventually walling himself into a bathroom.

Finally her John admitted it on August 8th, 2008. But he still denies the baby. They spell her name incorrectly as “Reille Hunter” on that story.

Rielle Hunter Biography

As a biography, Rielle Hunter is a producer and aspiring actress. She has been described as “formerly hard-partying girl who claims that she found enlightenment.” She is credited with writing and starring in “Billy Bob and Them”.

Rielle met Edwards at a New York Bar. Of the meeting she says,

“I didn’t think it was John Edwards because the public persona did not mesh at all with the person who was sitting in front of me.”

Hunter has a video production company, which was hired by John Edwards on a $100,000, six-month contract to terminate December 31, 2006. The allegations stem from this relationship. Hunter denies all allegations and says their relationship was strictly professional.

Interestingly, the Enquirer also says that Hunter is now living in Chapel Hill, North Carolina in a gated community a few blocks away from Andrew Young, a key official in Edwards’ campaign. Supposedly Young has been in charge of looking after Hunter while she stays in hiding. And apparently HE is claiming responsibility for the baby, despite being married with children himself.

Only time will tell if this is true, but it could just be another scandal born of dirty politicking.

    Who is David Perel? John Edwards knows.

    Mr. Perel is the courageous man who is standing up to the lies and distortion of John Edwards and making the case that, at the very very very minumum, that the former coke head TOLD her FRIENDS that she BELIEVES that she is carrying JOHN EDWARD’s BABY. Whether it’s his or not is not the point.

    And, He ain’t backing Down!!! He stands by his story that John Edwards is a cheater and that his “love child” is on the way.

    In the hierarchy of American tabloids, The National Enquirer, based in Boca Raton, Fla., is considered the most respectable. It boasts the largest newspaper circulation in the country at nearly 3 million. Editor-in-chief David Perel majored in English at the University of Maryland, went to work for the Washington Post and took a year off to travel. He began his career with the Enquirer as a reporter 19 years ago. He is married, with three children and a rabbit.

    He’s the messenger. So vette him. So John Edwards can join the group of:

    Gary Hart, Dick Morris, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Arnold Schwartneggar, and the long list of cheaters that only the tabloids have the courage to out!

    it’s amazing this story died down so quickly considering it is very fishy and plausible. and she should be having the baby pretty soon. probably by march or april. so now he’ll have 4 kids! wow! what’s odd is had wade not died, they would have gone into law practice together and he would have never pursued politics and elizabeth may not have gotten cancer since it could have been caused by fertility treatment to have 2 more kids. poor woman.

    44 is too old to have a baby, as Gov. Sarah Palin had a Downs syndrome baby at 44.

    Riele Hunter looks like an old wrinkled witch in the pic. Could never get a man to even look at her, so she resorted to stealing someone else’s!

    This is crazy, the videos she made are all on YouTube
    They’re both clearly in love with each other.
    He looks so besotted with “camera girl”
    You can see that she gave an interview to EXTRA on their website when this first came out. She has a very colorful history and likes the attention.
    All of the information is coming from a “source” close to Rielle.
    She wants this to come out, she wants John to admit to the relationship. I don’t blame her. I’m sorry for Elizabeth. She was the brain behind the man. Elizabeth got sick and had to focus on herself rather than him. She lost his attention and he is an insensitive narcissist who is incapable of understanding how to use a condom.

    Come on… this is the The National Enquirer. The same publication that puts out stories of 99 year old woman having babies with two heads, and one is a dogs head.

    This is a fictitious “entertainment” publication people… do you believe Everything you read?

    Not to get in anyone’s business, but Lisa Druck was a(maybe still is) a very crazy party woman that could be involved with drugs and sexcapades,lol. If you really wanna know check out her crimanal record here:
    If this story published on this sight was false, then someone would of stepped up to straighten everyone’s perception. Everyone acts scared or distant to the situation. And tell me what politician would not jump on the idea of becoming vice president or even run longer as a presidential nominee then he did. He calmly dropped out and could potentially endorse another candidate, but didnt. He softly turned down VP request as Obama is seen visiting his home and reporters constantly ask his opinion on the position. He always acted nice and sweet and as a family man, but who’s to say he’s not participating in the drugs and sexcapades as well. Now a child by this woman who hasnt spoke to press and hides… with Edwards missing in action until caught going to her room at 2am. 2am is a “bootycall” around my way. You dont talk politics after midnite and dont have film production question for the Lisa Druck at this time either. Check out articles at NationalEnquirer.com or just google her name(s). The have released birth records but no one wants to rush to get a DNA paternity test. We will find out shortly… til next time, take it easy and OBAMA08, the better choice.
