So did anyone see Oprah yesterday? Rielle Hunter (John Edward's mistress) was giving her first interview. Riveting! Although it was nice to hear the hard cold facts of the affair I was shocked at her take on it.
Even now in hindsight she seems completely cultivified (not a real word) by her "love" for him. She had no problem admitting pursuing him but she felt justified because she knew instantly that they needed each other. It was crazy! She consistently said although he lied to his wife and the world,,he never lied to her.
She explained their meeting and affair as a cosmic force that could not be denied. The odd thing is she continually described herself as a "truthful, spiritual person." She did not feel bad or regret what had happened. She felt that her and John were meant to be and they share a true love. She also felt that John wasn't his true authentic self and she was gonna help him with that. I guess his true self is a lying, cheating pig! She takes no responsibility for the hurt it caused his ailing wife.
So I ask, although I feel personally that the majority of the blame is the married persons fault; after all, they are the one with the commitment. Doesn't the mistress have a bit of blame as well? What do you think?
Anyway..kudos to Oprah for really getting at Rielle with the hard questions.
