(Newser) – Elizabeth Edwards probably isn't too thrilled with Rielle Hunter's GQ spread—but neither is Hunter. Barbara Walters said on The View today Hunter told her that when she saw the pictures, she found them "repulsive." When Walters asked her why she posed the way she did, Hunter said she trusted the "brilliant" photographer, and "went with the flow." Added Walters, "She cried for 2 hours."

Walters' co-hosts were less than sympathetic. "If you're going to involve Kermit, Barney, and Dora, put your pants on. It's borderline perverse," says Elisabeth Hasselbeck. "GQ is a sexy magazine for men, so it does not seem to me that it should be as surprising as if she had done a television interview with, say, Barbara Walters," quipped Whoopi Goldberg.
