Today, John Edwards admitted he is the father of Rielle Hunter's baby. Rielle spoke with Extra about their "inspirational" relationship.
Extra got the inside scoop on Rielle and John's relationship from Rielle herself. In 2007, she said: "He was very real and authentic. He was inspirational to me." They met randomly in a bar and she "hoped the videos [she produced for his campaign] would help change Edwards' image." Though she spent lots of time with Edwards and even accompanied him on a trip to Africa, Hunter then claimed the affair allegations to be "trash, full of lies, not true, completely unfounded and ridiculous."
