Rielle Hunter is truly sorry. She says so today right in a Huffington Post blog.
Hunter says she behaved badly when she fell in love with John Edwards when he was running for president. She says she was selfish.
And she says instead of apologizing she wrote a book which hurt more people.
She takes full responsibility – though she notes that she “was so viciously attacked by the media and the world” that she felt like a victim.
She takes full responsibility – but does point out that her parents cheated on each other and that “damaged” her.
She says she believes history repeats itself if you don’t take responsibility, so she has updated her book, annotating her mistakes and regrets. “In Hindsight, What Really Happened: The Revised Edition: John Edwards, Our Daughter and Me” is now for sale.
