    One of America's most visible secret love affairs has ended. “We are a family, but as of the end of last week John Edwards and I are no longer a couple,” Hunter said Tuesday on Good Morning America. “Not at all.” Hunter recently published a steamy tell-all memoir about her affair with the former presidential candidate, titled What Really Happened: John Edwards, Our Daughter, and Me. In the book Hunter revealed that Edwards had several other mistresses before beginning their relationship. “For me, for my part in it, it’s because I’m no longer interested in hiding, hiding our relationship, not living out,” Hunter said of the decision to split. A jury deadlocked in May on charges against Edwards that he used campaign funds to hide his relationship with Hunter during his 2007–08 presidential campaign.
