Here are 12 gross things about tonight's Rielle Hunter interview about her relationship with John Edwards (apart from the fact that it happened). Hunter was interviewed for ABC's "20/20" by Chris Cuomo. Some of it's new, some of it's not. All of it is gross.
-The sex tape was made on a "poverty trip" to Uganda.
-The way Hunter would take swipes at Elizabeth Edwards and follow with "And I'm not saying that to bash Elizabeth" or "I'm not trying to be mean about Elizabeth."
-That Hunter excused all of Edwards' bad behavior by blaming his actions on Elizabeth.
-That Hunter called his campaign after Elizabeth's second diagnosis, "The Cancer Has Returned Campaign Tour."
-That Hunter believes a lot of people will "get" why she thinks it's okay to trash the deceased Elizabeth in her new book.
-That during their affair, Hunter and John Edwards would talk on the phone for hours and he would tell her that his marriage had been "a sham for years."
-The creepy, skeevy way Rielle described her draw to Edwards: "There is something that happens between us that is indescribable and it is a mystery."
-That when she first met him she felt she could help him "merge" the public image with the man she saw.
-That Edwards called her fewer than 24 hours after their first "merger" and said he missed her "bad."
-That Hunter and Edwards never used birth control.
-That according to Hunter, Edwards once had her bump into him and his two small children at a mall, where she posed as a random shopper so she could meet the children.
-That when Edwards learned Hunter was pregnant his response was, "Gracious."
