Is this necessary? John Edwards’s former mistress Rielle Hunter plans to publish a memoir titled What Really Happened: John Edwards, Our Daughter, and Me. Edwards was charged with using campaign funds to hide Hunter during his 2008 presidential bid and was acquitted on one charge Thursday, while a mistrial was declared on the other charges. “We are delighted to publish Rielle Hunter’s memoir,” Glenn Yeffeth, publisher of BenBella Books, told reporters. “A lot has been said. But no one has heard the truth of what really happened until now.” In a 2010 interview, Hunter likened her first night with Edwards to a “magnetic-force field,” and she has said the love between the two of them is “unconditional.”
