Too Much Rielle on the Bed

Apparently Rielle is unhappy with her GQ photo shoot . (I screamed for two hours, she told Barbara Walters. Video below.) I guess it was the wily photographer who got her to take her pants off and strike a come hither pose next to Barney and Kermit. No matter. However it happened, we are now stuck with two frightening images of Rielle on the bed: the Barney image, and this other one from the Daily Beast description of the sex tape: ( Emily , you were too classy to include the graphic description, so I will.)

On the video, both participants are naked. Hunter is propped up against the hotel bed headboard, with John Edwards belly-down on the bed between her legs. As Hunter, the campaign's official videographer, holds the camera, a smiling Edwards performs oral sex. Because of the camera angle, Hunter's face is not visible, but her distinctive jewelry is. Not only does candidate Edwards know he's being filmed, one source says, he's also clowning around and graphically performing for the camera.

Barney. Johnny. Pregnant. Dora. Oral sex. "Clowning around." God, the more I stare at that GQ photo, the more it looks like Barney and Kermit are the ones "graphically performing." Help! It’s all starting to blend together.
