John Edwards’ former mistress Rielle Hunter is revealing many intimate details of their relationship, but she says that after their affair went public, “Johnny” lost his mind.
Rielle went on Piers Morgan Tonight Wednesday and said she thought her lover was “very strange” after he tried to cover up their relationship and the paternity of his love child.

“I don’t think he was in his right mind when he did that,” the 48-year-old told Piers. “It was difficult. He was all over the place. He was temporarily insane.”
“Once he got caught at the Beverly Hills Hilton in 2008, he was very strange for about a month because his double life had been exposed.”

Edwards video was caught by the National Enquirer visiting Rielle and their daughter, Quinn, and he subsequently lied about the relationship and paternity of the child.
Rielle dropped the bombshell news that she and John have broken up since the details from her book have been released, and told Piers it was a difficult time for her.

However, when Piers pressed her to discuss what she wrote about their first night together being “the most extraordinary night of” her life, she refused to comment, arguing and stonewalling him.
She said Piers was only focusing on “salacious” details, and then gave her response in the form of a question.
