Today on the Rielle Hunter-John Edwards Front ...

Where to even begin?

John Edwards' mistress, Rielle Hunter, once appeared in movies starring Denzel Washington, Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell, Inside Edition reports.

Rielle Hunter – real name Lisa Druck – is credited as Lisa Hunter in 1987's Overboard, starring Russell and Hawn, and 1991's Ricochet, in which she had a small role as a reporter opposite Washington, John Lithgow and Ice-T.

She also appeared in an indie flick titled Chicago Poems.

Meanwhile, Rielle Hunter's two sisters, Roxanne Druck in North Carolina and Melissa Druck in Nevada, have shamelessly cashed in spoken out about her to Entertainment Tonight and The Insider in interviews airing Wednesday.

"I've seen the pictures of the baby - and she looks like John Edwards," says Roxanne. "She's got his eyes, jaw line and lips, but she does have Rielle's nose... My niece is not a bastard child, I just don't think it's right."

THG NOTE: So an infant apparently resembles John Edwards... but is not a bastard, despite being fathered by a man married to someone else?

Roxanne Druck also said the former presidential hopeful's "admission" of his affair with Rielle Hunter was vague and sketchy at best.

"The most shocking thing was watching him on TV giving half truths, these half baked answers. I wish for everyone involved that he'd come clean."

Roxanne said she would give Edwards' cancer-sticken wife, Elizabeth Edwards, "a big hug and apologize. I'm very ashamed my sister had an affair with a public man ... She's not the first person to make this mistake and won't be the last."

Lastly, another Rielle Hunter ex-boyfriend, novelist Jay McInerney, said the 44-year-old amateur filmmaker inspired his book A Story of My Life.

"[I was] kind of fascinated by her and her friends," he told Extra. "I saw them as a tribe that I wanted to study."

The book, he explained, "is about a group of girls, five or six friends, coming to New York and conquering or failing to conquer the city."

McInerney described Hunter as "a wonderful girl. She has a good heart and she's a good person," he said. "I still wish her well."

John Edwards Quotes

I am and have been willing to take any test necessary to establish the fact that I am not the father of any baby, and I am truly hopeful that a test will be done so this fact can be definitively established.

John Edwards

In 2006, I made a serious error in judgment and conducted myself in a way that was disloyal to my family and to my core beliefs.
