Elizabeth Edwards talks Rielle Hunter and more on Larry King

(CNN) - Elizabeth Edwards, who became legally separated from husband John Edwards in January, is again speaking out about the woman who was instrumental in ending her marriage.

Speaking to CNN's Larry King in an exclusive primetime interview airing Wednesday, Edwards took aim at Rielle Hunter – the woman with whom John Edwards engaged in an affair and fathered a child – for posing provocatively in a magazine earlier this year.

"I did see the pictures and I think it's really important when you're a mother to convey that's the role you value and I think she just had too many T's to cross," Edwards said. "She also wanted to be viewed as sexy and everything else. At some point you can be sexy but that can't be your goal.

Rielle Hunter told Oprah Thursday that she was helping John Edwards find his 'authentic self.'

(CNN) – Despite many people telling her it wasn’t the best idea to sit down with Oprah Winfrey for an interview, Rielle Hunter – politician John Edwards' mistress – decided to do it anyway.

"I feel in my heart it’s the right thing to do," Hunter said Thursday, especially now that "Johnny," as she calls him, has admitted paternity of their daughter, Frances Quinn.

Hunter said she wanted to set the facts straight about who she is, and that while she understands the judgment that has been heaped upon her, she doesn’t see herself as a home wrecker or gold digger, she told Winfrey.

Hunter upset over GQ photos

Hunter is not happy with GQ's photographs of her.
Hunter is not happy with GQ's photographs of her.

(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.
