The Washington Post has published excerpts from a nearly 10,000 word GQ interview with Rielle Hunter titled "Hello, America, My Name is Rielle Hunter" in which says she's still in love with "Johnny" and believes he loves her.
Hunter also tells GQ "That they went to bed together the day they met." That his marriage was "toxic," that he feared "the wrath of Elizabeth." That it was Young's idea for the coverup in which he claimed paternity. That she had no idea how much money -- now the subject of a grand jury inquiry -- was being funneled to her from top campaign donors.

The article is accompanied by photos of Hunter curled on a bed in what is reported as her Charlotte home.
Hunter says she receives child support from Edwards but lives in a rental home. The home Edwards bought for Hunter in Charlotte's Eastover neighborhood, Hunter says she cannot afford to live in.
