Hunter upset over GQ photos

(CNN) – Rielle Hunter is extremely upset with the three photographs of herself featured in the latest issue of GQ magazine.

The woman who was involved in a months-long affair with Democrat John Edwards told ABC's Barbara Walters Monday she found the images - two of which feature her without pants - "repulsive" and, Hunter also told Walters, she cried for two hours because she felt they were so terrible.

"When I asked, 'Well if that was the case, why did you pose the way you did?' She said that she trusted Mark Seliger, who she said is a brilliant photographer, and she quote 'went with the flow,'" Walters said on ABC's The View.

"She said that he took a lot of pictures, and thought there might be one like that, that showed her being sexy," Walter's continued. "When she was shown with her daughter, she was wearing her own t-shirt and sweatpants. The other photos of her with the big shirt are not her clothes, they were given to her by the photographer."

The images accompanied a more than 10,000-word interview with Hunter, who for the first time discusses how her now-infamous affair with Edwards developed.

    If you don't want pictures published of you without your pants on, don't pose for a photographer without your pants on.

    Plus, she looks beautiful.

    So it's now clear that Edwards is as shallow as anyone else who has an affair with some hotty. She's obviously dimmer than a 5 what florescent bulb.

    Two peas in a pod. They certainly deserve each other.

    How long did she cry after sleeping with Elizabeth Edward's husband. Ms. Hunter and Mr. Edwards deserve each other.

    So.... she forgot to put her pants on? Maybe Elizabeth Edwards can give Ms.Hunter some tips on how to handle yourself in public.
    Elizabeth is the epitomy of class and dignity and I believe her pants remained on during photo shoots and interviews. Be accountable Rielle.

    She slept with a married man when it went against all ofer beliefs why? Because there was so much intensity in the room she couln;'t help it. She is upset with the fact they were used. She posed for a remarkable photogopher like that why? This trifflin' little homewrecking beotch of a ho doesn't take responsibillity for any of her actions.

    Looks like John Edwards isn't the only one caught with his pants down....

    This woman is truly such a manipulative con-artist. If you pose in a shirt with no pants in a provocative position on a bed, what did you expect? A wholesome family photo? If you are going to put yourself in a national spotlight by sleeping around with a politician, act like trash, obviously not use birth control and pose for provocative pictures you are going to get all kinds of negative publicity, a baby and be considered a tramp. Act like it, deal with it. Sounds like you need a good psychiatrist. I feel truly sorry for your child – what a legacy you have left for her to deal with.

    Is this the CNN political ticker? I had to check twice to make sure I wasn't on TMZ or PerezHilton. Anyway, Rielle, please go away. You are little more than a prostitute, and the way you are figuratively prostituting your way into fame and publicity now is disgusting.

    This woman is sooooooo a loser. Please, your 15 minutes of fame were up when the whole world learned that you bore John Edward's illegitimate child.

    Who really cares about her being upset, she has somehow got her 15 or more minutes of fame. John Edwards is a cheater and his wife deserves better. Thank GOD, that John Edwards is not the President of the USA with his many skeletons in the closet.

    Did she not notice she wasn't wearing any PANTS! Besides that, she shouldn't be mad at that photographer. She should thank him. He made her look physically better than she ever has while capturing her inner skank. Bravo.

    Good christ, you're a tart who slept with a married man and cashing in on the fact you opened your legs...and you don't like the way the pictures portray you? You have the power to say "No, I don't want to pose like that"... oh wait, saying no is not something you're good at.

    Well, if she had good judgment, she wouldn't have had the affair to being with. So a continuing lack of good judgment isn't exactly a surprise.
