John Edwards' mistress and his wife soon will have more than one thing in common: appearing on "The Oprah Winfrey Show."
Edwards' baby mama, Rielle Hunter, will be a guest on an upcoming show, Oprah's camp has announced. This will be Hunter's first TV interview since the scandal broke.
Oprah's people say no date for the show has been set, but The National Enquirer reports that Oprah will visit Hunter in her Charlotte, N.C., home for a show to air during May sweeps.
"Rielle is super excited to have Oprah come into her home," an insider told The Enquirer exclusively. "She's excited about giving her account of how she met John, how the affair began and what's in store for her future. Rielle also wants to clear the air about the GQ photos -- she's basically doing it to get the truth out and tell her side of the story."
That would make Oprah's talk with Hunter exactly a year after Edwards' wife, Elizabeth, appeared on the show in May 2009 to talk about the affair and Elizabeth's book.
The GQ article Hunter refers to above was a tell-all interview accompanied by some alluring photos.
