(Newser) – In scheduling her first TV interview, Rielle Hunter has gone right to the top: Oprah Winfrey. The Queen of All Media beat out Barbara Walters and Diane Sawyer in the competition to debrief John Edwards' mistress and baby mama, RadarOnline reports. When she wanted to distance herself from photos that appeared in GQ showing her without pants, Hunter chose Walters to complain to—but the photographer quickly countered by releasing video showing an unperturbed Hunter at the shoot.
