Rielle Hunter CRUSHED By Whoopi Goldberg, Elisabeth Hasselbeck on The View

by at . Comments

Rielle Hunter was eviscerated on The View yesterday as the gabfest panel, in particular Whoopi Goldberg, went nuclear on John Edwards' mistress.

"In your book, you trash a dead lady," Goldberg stated, referring to Rielle Hunter's new tell-all book, in which she bashes Elizabeth Edwards often.

"That was kind of crappy."

Regarding What Really Happened: John Edwards, Our Daughter and Me, the author responded, "I wrote to tell the truth. I was truthful about their dynamic."

In the interview, Hunter acknowledged that despite recent photos of the happy family on a North Carolina beach, she broke up with John Edwards.

Asked if the split was caused by her memoir, Rielle dodged. "I don't want to hide any more," she said. "It's hard under media scrutiny, it takes a toll."

The mother of Edwards' love child spent a good part of the interview defending herself. "I'm not a mistress, I'm a mom," Rielle Hunter insisted.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck wasn't buying it: "Truth be told, you were a mistress." 

Even Barbara Walters piled it on, saying she had a "bone to pick" with Hunter for accusing Walters of "bullying" after Rielle's interview with Oprah.

"I have no idea what you mean by that," Walters said. "I've done thousands of interviews and I've never bullied or screamed at anyone."

"I've made people cry, but I've never screamed."

"It's not the first time, and it won't be the last, that people remember things differently," replied Hunter, who may want to skip The View on her next PR tour.

Rielle Hunter, George Zimmerman, and an host of so many others are all professional liars. Lying is to them is like breathing. It their natural thing to do. They might be the biggest liar in the world but in their mind what they are saying is the absolute truth. Therefore, they will pass a lie detector test everytime. The cast of the View asked some great questions,Rielle Hunter told some great, unbelievable lies. John Edward might had had some great sex, but Rielle Hunter had a great fool.

There is no need for bad feeling between the parties involved at this point. We know that Ms.Hunter did not love Me. Edwards. I hateful enemy could not have done a better job in destroying their target. Many power men have had healthy wives and very invisible mistresses for years. Those women loved their men kept their place and help expand the wealth and power of the men they loved.

Rielle Hunter is her own worst enemy and she's definitely John Edwards worst enemy. The Edwards family needs to block Rielle Hunter from their lives once and for all. It wasn't enough for Hunter to destroy John Edwards entire world. Now, she's going after his children. Her book bashing their dead mother is horrific. No way in hell should John Edwards younger two children, have any interaction with Hunter. Cate, obviously doesn't speak to the slut. Hunter can forget the "we are a family." John Edwards needs to get a lawyer or friend to transport Quinn, but he should never be near Hunter again. Instead of taking to Hunter on the phone, they can email or text. There is no benefit for him, or even for Quinn for John Edwards to see or speak to Rielle Hunter. God help little Quinn. With such an evil, selfish, toxic mother - that kid doesn't have a snowball's chance.

Lightnin needs to have a bolt of lightning go up his arse....Whoopi Goldberg adds a lot of class to The View compared to what Rosie O'Donnell did!

LIGHTNIN needs to be struck in the butt by lightning. I guess this person can't handle a black person expressing themselves. But Whoopi brings a lot of class to daytime t.v. that Rosie O'Donnell seemed incapable of!! Sure she made mistakes with Ted Danson..what's that to me?? I have enough problems of my own...and LIGHTNIN just does not make the world a better place! As Mr. T.
used to say..Pity the Fool!!

Jones, you must be one nasty bitch or bastard..if you do not think Reille wasn't eviscerated! She got the grilling and maintained a good composure compared to Joy(who can from time to time, can suck the Joy out of a viewer) and even Whoopi.

Jenny, one would have to say Rielle is one tough cookie! The women's questions didn't bother me..it was more the look on their faces(Joy Behar and Whoopi's..2 prune face..they acted like Church ladies..yet, as you pointed out Whoopi isn't very Churchy and nor is Joy(living together without being married). I also felt sorry for Paris Hilton, the hell Barbara gave her and she was spose to be friends with Paris's mother..GOD help Barbara's enemies!! Because of Paris..i have enjoyed cupcakes! Paris was(is??)a fun girl!!

I agree with Jill...Rielle should not have gone on The View. And, at times, those ladies on there ARE horrible. To me, Elisabeth is the most irritating one on there. Look, I'm no fan of Rielle Hunter. But, by going on The View, Rielle was asking for trouble (or whatever). Case closed.
