John Edwards’ mistress won’t party with “24” but talks to Oprah

By Roger Friedman

Tonight is the wrap party for the Fox series “24.”

Who won’t be there: Rielle Hunter, John Edwards’s mistress and babymama.

As I told you a couple of weeks ago, before she met Edwards, Hunter was very busy in Hollywood. She was a regular behind the scenes at “24,” where was incredibly close to one of the gang (not Kiefer). I’m told there were substantial benefits to this friendship. My sources also say that Hunter certainly was also a close friend of actor Jeff Goldblum.

Oprah Winfrey didn’t ask Hunter about any of this yesterday on her show. She did sit in Hunter’s living room in a house paid for by John Edwards and look like she was smelling something very bad. It was classic Oprah. I thought she was going to spray the room with Oust.

Hunter expressed no remorse for breaking up a home with two children and a dying wife. She did seem to act like it was her blessed assignment to do so, and that collateral damage was to be expected.

    I think Edward got what he paid for. No more is he a candidate for President (Yay), he no longer has a partner that consistuents admire, and he’s with a sleezeball who doesn’t even realize that she’s a homebreaker.
