    1. The lady doth protest too much, methinks Hamlet, Wm ShakespeareOver the course of my life I ve had three legal actions against three different individuals on three different matters What those matters were won t be elucidated here.On one of them, I was clearly at fault, and gladly paid the penalty On another, both sides settled by mutual agreement On the other, things were dicey I felt wronged and, being an articulate writer, scribed for myself an eloquent statement that I believed would aid my [...]

    2. Even if I didn t know who Rielle Hunter was before I read What Really Happened, like if I lived in an ice hut in Antarctica, my opinion of Rielle Hunter would still be below that of the Octo Mom after finishing this arrogant, one dimensional drivel, which really serves as a PSA for the importance of having a good therapist if you re ever diagnosed as being a pathological narcissist.What Really Happened Well, what really happened is Ms Hunter had delusions of Jackie O grandeur and figured she cou [...]

    3. Rielle Hunter, is not real at all but she is a hunter She made up that first name and this book, supposedly what really happened, is full of lies, self delusion and cruelty After reading the first couple of pages I was going to put it down, it was so disgusting But then I decided to read it as a psychological study, abnormal psychology She is a case of narcissism beyond compare Grandiose self delusion just oozes off of the page A California spiritual searcher I had to laugh when I wrote that she [...]

    4. Wow I don t know if it was because my power has been off and I m broiling in this heat or because this woman is so blinded by her own selfish needs, but this book really bothered me I am so, so glad she didn t see a dime from me because I borrowed the book from the library What a truly horrible woman.

    5. So this book deserves five stars because it was amazing Of course, that rating is probably meant to confer high quality literature puffs on imaginary cigarette , but in this case it was amazing for entirely different reasons Oh, this review is based on the excerpt in People magazine, so it is limited though I strongly suspect the rest of the book is of the same.At any rate, Rielle Hunter has decided to set the record straight and break her silence regarding her affair with former Presidential c [...]

    6. Read this aloud to someone who has an unusual obsession with Rielle Hunter surpassed only by her obsession with Bunny Mellon It is mostly a catalog of salads Hunter ate during the extramarital portion of her affair with John Edwards When she isn t fondly reminiscing about these exceedingly memorable salads she is making hilarious excuses for her own poor behavior and that of John Edwards If nothing else, the frequent and obvious typos were riveting.

    7. Reading this book is exactly like eating junk food You know it s bad, that it has no nutritional value, but it s irresistible and you can t stop munching delightedly away NOM NOM NOM, GOSSIP AND JUDGMENT AND UNBELIEVABLE NARCISSIST DELUSION, DELICIOUS I find myself unable to offically rate this book because it won t make sense in comparison to other books with the same ratings On the one hand, it s BAD the writing is crap so it deserves a one or two star rating But on the other hand, it is so ve [...]

    8. Once again I feel like needs a 0 star option What a self serving load of crap One of many telling moments is when Hunter derides some poverty lady from UNC who was really snotty to her Hunter I cannot imagine why a serious professional tackling the issue of poverty may not have been anything but worshipful towards the lady who didn t bother to get her name and was only there as the on staff mistress Also, Hunter regularly ridicules all of the Edwards staffers for thinking they knew better than E [...]

    9. I didn t think it was possible for me to walk away from this book liking her any less than I did before I started it What an unlikable, selfish woman She seems to live a very extravagant lifestyle for someone who was essentially sponging off of anyone who would pay her bills Throughout the book, she keeps referring to her little rental house different rental houses as if to make it seem like she was living like a pauper The rent on these little rental houses was 2700 per month in Chapel Hill to [...]

    10. I just couldn t resist reading this book, but that s two hours I ll never get back From the 20 typos, it s obvious that the editors didn t care too much about this book either Rielle Hunter is a new agey quack job whose purpose was clearly to 1 tell everyone John Edwards did nothing illegal with campaign money, and 2 blame Elizabeth Edwards for John Edwards piece of shit behavior At the end of today, who cares

    11. Uh, yeah I read this Well, hate read it Was entertaining, if enraging She spends 75% of it complaining about how little money she got compared to Andrew Young How broke she was, forced to live w the Youngs Why didn t she have friends Why couldn t she get a job support herself Baffling Fascinating Ok, maybe I did like this.

    12. I read this book to see if this woman was as crazy as her interviews make her appear Yep, she is.

    13. Just read this one out of tabloid curiosity I can see why John Edwards had to break up with her after this book came out She is seriously delusional and seems to think this man who cheated on his dying wife is going to be true to her and her daughter In the first chapter alone, she calls him out as a serial adulterer She says he had 3 girlfriends in different cities when they met and, of course, he gave them all up for her This is a detailed account of their affair and the donor money spent for [...]

    14. She really is the worst, her sense of entitlement knows no bounds The way she blasts Elizabeth is unfathomable, especially since she is dead and unable to defend herself The only saving grace is that one day Quinn will get to read this garbage and know that her Mom and Dad are the absolute worst people imagainable.

    15. She got what she deserved I can t feel sorry for a woman who knowingly stayed with a married man I don t care if it wasn t a solid marriage, it was a marriage nonetheless.

    16. I have never read a book that inspired such intense Schadendfreude Every page gave me a powerfu new reason to despise Hunter.

    17. I read this on my Kindle so no one would see me I was really curious because when I was a teenager I read Jay McInery s Story of my Life over and over and the narrator in that book, Allison Poole is based on Rielle Something in that world weary, blas character really fascinated me and I was curious about the journey that had brought her to being so focused on the light and joyful aspects of life to the point of sometimes being self delusional Rielle has come a long way since the Alison Poole day [...]

    18. I went into this with an open mind I didn t follow the media scrutiny of their affair that closely so I only knew the basic facts they had an affair resulting in a kid that he denied while lying about her constantly I was curious what she would present as her side I m not morally or otherwise outraged that she had an affair with a married politician I m not going to pretend she s the first one ever to do so or even the worst so perhaps my reaction is tempered by I don t care whereas a lot or rea [...]

    19. I don t normally bother with books that have been panned pretty much everywhere, but I noticed this book on the non fiction shelf at the library and decided to give it a try Of course, that meant subjecting myself to the embarrassment of the librarian and other patrons knowing I was actually reading this book, but I went for it anyway I m a believer in the saying that there are three sides to every story and I don t doubt there is some truth in Rielle Hunter s story There is probably plenty of t [...]

    20. This was ghostwritten, but the subject of the book dictated it as apologia for an atrocious chain of events that took place within a stone s throw of this reader Her attempts to explain away her actions and gloss over many others, like the racy photoshoot for GQ were implausible at best and crazymaking at worst She appears to have detached herself from anyone in her life who could argue reason with her, and instead surrounded herself with sycophants and or large checkbooks any dissension wasn t [...]

    21. On a scale of eh to terrific this book is definitely an eh for sure I thought I was going to hear some really interesting story about what REALLY happened Instead, I heard the same story that has been played out in the press and the rag mags since this story broke So let me say this right off the bat things like affairs and politics happen they have been happening forever I don t judge This book just getsfor lack of a better term icky There aren t gory details about their affair, just icky in th [...]

    22. I found this book very poorly written I wanted to like her I thought I d get her, but no The writing was so juvenile it meandered all over the place little tidbits that were just not interesting My other problem with the book was the pacing it drags at first with long details about encounters they had, what they ate, where they ate, etc But when we get to what could be interesting the betrayal of Edwards staffer, etc it s all rushed over It felt like she was taking her sweet time writing the fir [...]

    23. OK, I love a good scandal and found myself sucked into this one This woman is quite delusional, pathetic and unlikeable I did not believe her story and many of the facts contradicted each other, usually within a few pages Her bashing of everyone else is humorous as she is the mistress and should be chastised Also, I hated the way that she felt entitled to, and completely ungrateful for all the luxuries she was receiving as a hidden mistress Anyway, the book was entertaining as they usually are w [...]

    24. First I feel that I need to explain why it is that I read this tell all in the first place Hunter used to be the girlfriend of Jay McInerey, who based the character of Alison Poole in Story of My Life on her I am always interested in the meta text But boy, oh boy, she does not come off as a sympathetic figure in this book even though it is she that controls her own narrative Not great writing e.g if I had to read one we ate at some restaurant or he talked to some guy I would have screamed reade [...]

    25. I get why Rielle would write this book I would want to write a book to defend myself if everyone else had wrote about meever, she painted herself to be innocent in all respects and Elizabeth Edwards as an abusive shrew While no one is a saint, it is hard for me to swallow a mistress painting the wife out as the villian and herself as the saint who was just in love She also claimed to know nothing about all of the questionable money that kept her living very well for such a long timehard to swall [...]

    26. Entertaining to say the least Rielle uses her new age, yoga inspired, perspective to excuse her and John Edwards behavior at every turn of the page Ultimately, Rielle is just like millions of other mistressese is a woman who wants to be loved She believes that the lust, that she initially felt and that gave rise to their affair, is really true, timeless love Readers get the fun of being the judge

    27. Yes I read it so I am giving it a rating.I borrowed this book from my local library knowing in advance it wasn t worth a penny.I could write a long review I made notes while I read , but I m not going to waste my time on this earth even doing that.I didn t like being spoken to like I was a juvenile Hunter a Life Coach and Johnny the President of the USA How shameful and disrespectful.Go and get professional help and get with the REAL world Rielle.

    28. I get that this is a biography but all Rielle seems to think about is herself and how things affect her Even when talking about her daughter it is about what a great mother she is to Quinn She whines and complains for most of the book how many pregnant when do you know who can spend five hours soaking in a tub Poor Rielle

    29. I did not spend a penny on this book Instead got it from my local library.I think this woman is the most immature, self centered individual there could be.All I want to say is I feel so sorry for her daughter It s always the kids that get the raw end of the deal.I hope her karma payback finds her sooner than later.

    30. This book is a complete piece of poo I am embarrassed that I read this However, my curiosity got the best of me after reading The Politician by Andrew Young Rielle Hunter inadvertently portrays herself as a vapid, self centered and transparent woman with her eyes on the prize If you are a regular reader of the National Enquirer, you may enjoy this book.
