I'm Spiritual, Dammit

Rielle Hunter gives spiritual warriors a bad name

I was driving home from work yesterday and I got an email from someone telling me I had to watch the Oprah interview with Rielle Hunter- John Edward's mistress.  

"She says she's spiritual- but really- she's so full of it!"  The email said.

So I watched the re-run at 11pm last night.  I still feel sick to my stomach.

Rielle spoke of her "incredible bond" with her lover "Johnny."  She swore he was being honest with her when he lied to everyone else on the planet.  She stayed the night with him the first night they met- despite knowing he was married.  And then she admitted that she wasn't TRYING to get pregnant, yet they slept together for months while using no birth control.  John also renewed his vows to then wife Elizabeth when he knew Rielle was pregnant with their love child.


I think what upset me the most is how delusional she is.  Her flaky answers might give people the wrong impression about what it means to be "spiritual".  

"I'm following my truth," she kept saying.  "I am a spiritual person who is trying to be authentic."

Oh can it, you slut!  

I have to give Oprah props for staying calm.  I've had to sit through some brutal interviews in my day- (The worse was Tommy Lee Jones...felt like I was locked in a closet with a guy kicking a soccer ball- but I digress....)  

Oprah nodded and kept a straight face- when the appropriate response would have been to gasp, "Oh Paaaaah-leeeeze!!" before smacking this idiot over the head with her notebook.

They also played interview clips of John Edwards denying this affair, or knowing anything about a baby. "Johnny" supposedly called Rielle afterwards to tell her some bullshit about how she shouldn't take that interview personally.  

Here's the thing- you don't have to be a genius to know that John Edwards is a psychopath.  Truly.  The definition is someone with no moral compass who uses other for their gains, has a high intelligence, and is a pathological liar.  Sounds like "Johnny" to me.

So Rielle- if you're reading this- please stop calling yourself "spiritual".  If you want to find your "authentic self"- start with a trip to a great shrink so that cute baby of yours has a chance.  Otherwise, you and that psychopathic married man you've been bedding will screw her up permanently.  

And everyone else- let's stop talking about her, okay?  Starting- NOW.  I promise that unless she turns a corner and blows my circuits by helping the poor or something, I will never speak  about her again.  

And neither should you, dammit!

"Spiritual" is a word people do tend to throw around pretty loosely. Anyone who's really felt a unity of body, mind and spirit - and oneness with the Divine - doesn't use the term lightly. I can't speak for her, but I do know that spirituality is serious (and joyful) business. My medium is spiritual dance. I wonder what hers is?
