Rielle Hunter, the '80s literary muse whom John Edwards has admitted to having had a "brief" (his word—the evidence says otherwise) affair back in 2006, is something of a New Age space cadet, fond of peppering her speech with such nonsense about how people are dragged down by "blockages" and going on about how Elizabeth Edwards "does not give off good energy." (Terminal cancer will do that to you.) While she claims that she conversed with Edwards about these things "all the time" during their affair, it's unclear if John himself took it seriously, or just went along with it to get some tail. Judging from the soundtrack of the infamous "webisodes" Hunter was paid tens of thousands of dollars to produce, however, it seems Edwards at least acknowledged her spiritual mumbo jumbo with a knowing wink.
