Rielle Hunter, John Edwards’ former mistress, is upset over the sexy photos she posed for, recently published by GQ magazine — but nobody bothered to ask how her fellow models felt about the recent overexposure.
Thankfully, there’s The View co-host Elizabeth Hasslebeck, championing the cause of innocent-yet-fictional characters.
In one particular image shot by photographer Mark Seliger, Rielly poses sans pants with a unicorn, Dora the Explorer, Kermit the Frog and Barney the purple dinosaur.
All of them, “non-consensual participants,” according to Hasselbeck, who made the comment during a March 15 broadcast on ABC.
“If you’re gonna involve Kermit, Barney and Dora, put your pants on, okay?” she said. “I mean, aside from the story being disgusting, don’t bring them into … These are non-consensual participants in this. It’s borderline perverse.”
“She thought [the photos] were repulsive,” said View host Barbara Walters.
Fellow View co-host Whoopie Goldberg didn’t quite understand what Hunter is so upset about.
“This interview was done for GQ magazine, and GQ is a sexy magazine for men,” she said. “It does not seem to me that it should be as surprising. […] It’s GQ, so I’m not quite buying it.”
Walters noted that Hunter was not paid for the GQ interview or the photos.

MLK was ‘gravely disappointed’ with white moderates — whom he believed were responsible for impeding civil rights
"We also realize that the problems of racial injustice and economic injustice cannot be solved without a radical redistribution of political and economic power."
—Martin Luther King Jr., 1967
This Martin Luther King Jr. Day comes as moderate Democrats, falling in line behind former vice president Joe Biden, are warning that the party risks re-electing Donald Trump if it nominates too radical a candidate for president — by which they mean someone like Senators Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren.
Harvard law professor Laurence Tribe catches Alan Dershowitz in humiliating hypocrisy
Harvard Constitutional law professor Laurence Tribe called out President Donald Trump's lawyer, Alan Dershowitz, Sunday on Twitter, noting that his opinions seem to evolve depending on who he's defending.
Dershowitz is on a kind of press junket for the president, defending him in various media appearances. The former lawyer to Jeffrey Epstein is handling Trump's defense as it pertains to the abuse of power. Dershowitz thinks that charge has no basis in law. In fact, impeachment trials aren't actually legal proceedings, they're political proceedings, because the Justice Department claimed that Trump can't be indicted under the law while he's president.
Watergate’s John Dean thinks Trump wrote part of his legal team’s brief — because it’s so terrible
Former White House counsel for Richard Nixon, John Dean, explained that the legal brief out of President Donald Trump's White House was so bad that it had to have been dictated by Trump himself.
Saturday evening, Trump's legal team, chaired by Trump lawyer Jay Sekulow and White House counsel Pat Cipollone, filed their own form of a legal brief that responded to the case filed by Democrats ahead of Tuesday's impeachment trial.
The document called the proceedings “constitutionally invalid” and claims House Democrats are staging a “dangerous attack” with a “brazen and unlawful attempt to overturn the results of the 2016 election and interfere with the 2020 election.”
