Rielle Hunter Opens Up About Affair to Oprah Winfrey

"Most of his mistakes or errors in judgment were because of his fear of the wrath of Elizabeth," she said. "He's allowed himself to be pushed into a lot of things that he wouldn't normally do because of Elizabeth's story line. And the spin that she wants to put out there. He was emasculated. And you know, the wrath of Elizabeth is a mighty wrath."

When asked if she felt bad for Elizabeth Edwards, Hunter told GQ that she has "such compassion for her," but that Elizabeth has an "unwillingness to take responsibility for her part in the marriage"

Hunter confirmed to GQ that the first words she said to the former senator were, "You're so hot" and said she slept with Edwards the first night they met.

She described their connection as "magnetic."

"And by the way, he is hot," she told the magazine. "He is not the two-dimensional geek that I thought he was, by any stretch of the imagination. He is hot."
