    "I behaved badly. That may seem obvious to you but it’s taken me a long time to admit that, even to myself. For years I was so viciously attacked by the media and the world that I felt like a victim. I now realize that the attacks are actually beside the point. The point is: I behaved badly."

    Rielle Hunter, Food Critic

    At the Holiday Inn in Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina: “We had room service for dinner; Johnny hid in the bathroom while the guy set up the table. The food was fantastic. I had chicken pasta; he had salmon.”
    The next day: “We had room service again, and again the food was outstanding. We were both blown away by it.”
    In Georgetown, April 2006: “He then gave me his credit card and I went out and got take-out food at Paolo’s. I wondered for a second if the guy behind the bar would have any reaction to me using John Edwards’ credit card. He didn’t.”
    "I loved eating at the Daily Grill in Georgetown while I waited for him. It’s just a few blocks from his townhouse; they serve a great Cobb salad."

    John Edwards, the fake musical


    I’m running for president,
    The highest office in the land.
    Look, I’m right there in the mirror,
    Smoothing my hair down with my hand.

    I am handsome. Yes, it’s true.
    And I am wealthy: that’s true, too.
    But superficial things like that,
    Well, they’re just not where I’m at.

    You see, I care about the poor.
    I often fret about their plight.
    I adore the way I look
    In this smoky barroom light.

    (RIELLE HUNTER spots JOHN EDWARDS at the bar and approaches him.)


    Hi, I’m Lisa.
    I mean Rielle.
    Will you take me
    To a hotel?
