(Newser) – Rielle Hunter says she was blindsided by the sexy photos accompanying her GQ interview, but video evidence suggests otherwise. The photographer who captured the pants-free portraits even offered John Edwards' mistress a look at the images, as shown in a video released by the magazine. "Rielle is a smart woman," reporter Lisa DePaulo said today on Good Morning America. "She knows what she wore and what she was doing in the photo shoot."

Barbara Walters said on The View yesterday that Hunter said she "cried for 2 hours" after seeing the GQ photos and "thought they were repulsive."
