Rielle Hunter: ‘24′ — And There’s So Much More


John Edwards‘ ex mistress and babymama Rielle Hunter is obviously not getting what she expected from the former U.S. senator.

First she did a sexy photo spread and interview with GQ magazine. Now she’s sitting down with Oprah for an hour long fess up during May sweeps. Edwards obviously has not come up with what Hunter demanded. The tawdry saga continues. (Let’s hope Oprah doesn’t bond with her the way she has with Kirstie Alley, Sarah Palin, and John Travolta.)

But sources in LaLa Land tell me that the big May sweeps finale of Kiefer Sutherland’s show, “24,” would be much more exciting if Hunter’s “story arc” from the series were included. Sources there are still talking about Hunter’s days on their set and at their parties prior to (and during) her Edwards episode. She was quite popular — in fact, too popular.

According to sources, there was some surprise and anxiety expressed when Hunter’s pregnancy was revealed a couple of years ago. These insiders say Hunter had a close relationship with a member of the ‘24′ family–and I am not talking about Sutherland.

    Roger, Thanks for your reporting!

    What she wants that she obviously hasn’t gotten is an engagement ring. Edwards’ friends have publicly said he won’t marry her. (Can she really be surprised after she sold the story to the tabloid to expose him?) I do feel sorry for his other children as they are old enough to understand much of it.

    By the way, what do your sources say about her child? Supposedly she’s said the girl has developmental issues such as extremely delayed speech. Is she okay or is somone getting her help before it’s too late?
