The war of words continues with John Edwards' former aide Andrew Young reacting to the comments made by the ex-senator's former mistress Rielle Hunter to GQ magazine.
Hunter described her relationship with Edwards, telling the publication, "I know he loves me. I have never had any doubt at all about that. ... We love each other very much. And that hasn't changed, and I believe that will be till death do us part."
Young spoke with ET correspondent Diane Dimond following his appearance on the CBS' "The Early Show" on Tuesday. He reacted to the racy photos of Hunter wearing only a men's white collared shirt and a pearl necklace in GQ, saying, "It's not the Rielle that I knew," adding that the photos looked like "some kind of Jennifer Aniston try-out." Young thinks Hunter did the photo shoot and interview for pride reasons and to get at Elizabeth Edwards.
The former aide is also convinced that Edwards is financially supporting Hunter's lawsuit against him: "You're talking about a gigantic amount of money. ... I don't know anybody else [other than John Edwards] that could."
He continued, "Right, now [Edwards] needs Rielle and Elizabeth to work with him. ... He's got a lot of issues right now."
In addition to Hunter, Young believes there were other extramarital affairs with more women and possibly other sex tapes. As for whether Edwards is reciprocating Hunter's "unconditional love," Young responded with, "I don't think John Edwards has the ability to love anybody but himself."
