Whoopi Goldberg Calls John Edwards Baby-Mama, Rielle Hunter, “Heartless” Over Trashing Elizabeth Edwards in Memoir (ABC)

Whoopi Goldberg and John Edwards former ‘clean-up woman’ Rielle Hunter sparred during her appearance on “The View” to promote her trashy memoir, “What Really Happened,” as if anyone in their right mind would take her word for what really happened in their relationship.  Whoopi Goldberg delivered a smackdown when she brought up how Rielle Hunter treated Elizabeth Edwards in the book saying,  “you trash a dead lady, whose husband you had an affair and a baby with, did it not occur to you that maybe that might not be the the right tone to take?” Goldberg also added “that was a crappy thing to do.” Hunter said she merely wanted “to tell the truth.” To that, Goldberg said, the whole thing makes Rielle Hunter “look bad, schemey, heartless.

Of course, ever the true narcissist, Rielle Hunter said she didn’t want to be viewed as a home wrecker. Whoopi Goldberg set her straight: “You had unprotected sex with a married man, and had a baby, and then allowed people to pretend it wasn’t happening. You put an entire nation in a very awkward position, you have to see where people are coming from.”

Rielle Hunter revealed that she is no longer in a relationship with John Edwards. Um, did she really think he was going to ride off into the sunset with her to build a life together? Old habits die hard. Elizabeth Edwards is laughing from the grave. All I can say is America needs to end its love affairs with train wrecks like Rielle Hunter.
