John Edwards’ mistress Rielle Hunter was cheating on him with Jeff Goldblum


While John Edwards was cheating on his wife of over thirty years, his mistress was cheating on him with a C-lister. That is, if you believe this story from Star Magazine which claims that Rielle Hunter had something going on the side with Jeff Goldblum. Rielle was allegedly dating Goldblum around the time that she got pregnant with Edwards’ baby, Frances, now two. When Goldblum found out it wasn’t his, he dumped her but it was no skin off Hunter’s back. She had her meal ticket and no longer needed Goldblum as a backup.

The mother of John Edwards’ young child was cheating on him, Star has discovered. At the same time Rielle Hunter was sleeping with the North Carolina democrat she was also having an affair with Law & Order: Criminal Intent star Jeff Goldblum!

Jeff met Rielle in 2006 at the Playhouse West acting school and repertory theater in North Hollywood, where he teaches, we report in our Feb. 22 issue, on newsstands today.

“Jeff said he was in love,” a source tells Star. “They were extremely close — totally, 100 percent, a major item.”

When videographer Rielle got pregnant in 2007, Jeff naturally assumed the baby was his — and Rielle led him on. “He asked her,” says the source. “She would only say, ‘Maybe.’ She kept him guessing.”

When it finally became clear he was not the dad, Jeff, who now dates 21-year-old Los star Tania Raymonde, ended the affair — but Rielle was hardly heartbroken. “Rielle really didn’t care that she lost Jeff,” says the source. “She knew he was just a fling. She cares much more for John.”

I can see this woman catting around acting classes trying to land a high profile guy. She probably worked to seduce Edwards, Goldblum, and several other men in an attempt to secure her freeloading future. It worked and she ended up with an unscrupulous married guy who basically threw away his political career for her. It’s not a unique story at all.

As we mentioned yesterday, Edwards’ rep denies a recent story that his client proposed to Hunter. The two could be moving in together after Edwards’ wife Elizabeth finally kicked him to the curb, though. Gawker has photos from the real estate listing of the $3.5 million North Carolina beach house that Edwards reportedly purchased for Hunter. Could Jeff Goldblum afford that?

    Nooooo, not the Fly!

    I love that sexy nerd Jeff Goldblum.

    IF this story is true, then it’s sad when a woman that you think you are seeing exclusively and love tells you that she is pregnant and MAYBE the child is yours.

    Just when you think this Edwards’ debacle couldn’t get any worse…methinks there’s so much more we don’t know.

  2. This is the most RANDOM gossip I’ve heard in a long time. Loves it!!!

  3. Iris says:

    she looks like John Edwards in the face. that’s probably why that narcissist had an affair with this freakshow.

  4. Maritza says:

    Wow, Jeff Goldblum AND John Edwards? These two are so different. Jeff has the tall nerdy interesting look about him and John is pretty handsome but sleazy. This woman is not that attractive, men will fall for anything.

  5. JulieNewmar says:

    um, yeah .. cute zebra hair band. Is it the 80′s again and no one told me?

  6. Dorothy says:

    Of course he could afford it, he was in the Jurrasic Park movies, a ton of indi films and I am sure he made a lot on Law and Order.

    I can’t believe how many lives this woman and John Edwards have ruined. Could you imagine if he became president and then this came out????? What a pair of flipping losers. I hope they rot.

  7. dude says:

    this woman is no prize! what is wrong with men these days? geez louise

  8. audrey says:

    I think she looks like Celine Dion’s hick cousin in that pic.

  9. Kevin says:

    Dorothy, exactly! Jeff’s got bank. He earned his as opposed to Edwards slopping his up off the public trough.

  10. JLM says:

    Jeez I’m more disturbed that Jeff Goldblum is dating little Alex from LOST!

  11. fizXgirl314 says:

    wait, since when is Jeff Goldblum a c-lister? I LOVE him… he’s so hot!

  12. Bodhi says:

    Jeff Goldblum is NOT c list!!

  13. Celebitchy says:

    Ok so is Jeff Goldblum B-list and should I change that?

  14. hatsumomo says:

    Why?!? is there no justice in this world? I used to love Jeff, i thought he was the world’s most handsome guy alive. He still is. And what is with Hunter? Is she like sexual napalm in the sack or what? Does she say the world’s most humorist jokes? She certainly aint easy on the eyes, in fact, she looks ridiculous. Gah!

  15. ligeia says:

    i guess one doesn’t need to be a super hot young model to hook up with all these high profile men. shrugs. she must have something special to her.
    i guess she looks confident and happy, thats probably it.

  16. angela says:

    That bitch gets Edwards AND Goldblum?! I’m sorry, but Jeff Goldblum is hot.

  17. Kim says:

    First, Jeff Goldblum is awesome and not c-list. C-listers WISH they had his name recognition. Second, uh…. Jeff Goldblum is dating a 21-year-old?

  18. Bodhi says:

    Sure, CB. His nerdy hottness has a special place in my heart :)

  19. CYANN says:

    Jeff is like the anti-Jon Gosselin

  20. Hannah says:

    I’ve been coming to your site religiously. It’s not that you report the best news the fastest but rather I feel like you actually know what you’re talking about! And I like that…a lot! There is nothing worse than reading a blog or listening to a radio show and you hear or read “Hey isn’t that whats his face from whats it called”

    But, I’m really and utterly shocked that you called Jeff Goldblum a c-lister, and then asked if he was a b-lister?…wow.

  21. Mairead says:

    Did, did she just call the lovely Mr. Goldblum C-List??!!!??! 8O The nerve!

  22. L says:

    Uhhhh. Ouch. I have only read the title and this is certainly one of the most disturbing things I have read in a long time as I love Jeff Goldblum. Please, no.

  23. gg says:

    She gets at least thirty points off for overaccessorizing in that photo, at the very least.

  24. snapdragon says:

    my mother told me and my sisters that when you are dressed to go out you should stop, look at yourself in the mirror, and take off one accessory. that way you won’t be overloaded. rielle recieved no such advice, i see.

  25. CB Rawks says:

    I love Jeff Goldblum (in allcaps in my heart), and I’m a bit surprised he found anything to like in her. But maybe she makes a good first impression or something.
    I love Jeff so much that I got his Jurassic Park action figure. It’s cute but it doesn’t quite capture him. :)

  26. DottieDot says:

    HAHAHA,this is excellent!

  27. Cinderella says:

    That woman must have mad skills. That’s all I can say.

  28. Courtney says:

    OK, I usually just lurk, but this post has me all discombobulated. I seriously heart Jeff Goldblum (he was soo hot in “Independence Day”) and can’t believe he would be this stupid, but worse, I seriously don’t get these “lists.” I thought someone who was in a major film franchise (Jurassic Park), a hit TV show & dozens of indies would be way above C list.

  29. Nicole says:

    OMG I’ve had a crush on Jeff Goldblum since I was a preteen! There’s something very appealing about him that I can’t quite put my finger on. But this news makes me sad. I thought he was better than this.

  30. MooMooMoo says:

    Damn he is hot in an Arthur Miller way, that John Edwards is just a filthy little Ken Doll.

  31. Wresa says:

    “She probably worked to seduce Edwards, Goldblum, and several other men in an attempt to secure her freeloading future.”

    The wikipedia entry on this woman is really interesting. Really, her dreams are coming true right now, and I think you are spot on with this paragraph, CB. Allison Poole, anybody?

  32. orion70 says:

    You know honey, when they have those 10 for $10 sales at Ardene’s and such….doesn’t mean you have to wear the entire bargain bin all at the same time.

    How in the hell does one CHEAT on a married guy??/
    This is the most stoopid headline ever…
    I’m ashamed to be a woman with you dumbass skeezers panting after douchebag, lame, hasbeen Jew wannabe actors; from movies to TV????
    She CHEATED on J. Edwaeds? WTF???

  34. laura says:

    Flies love SH*T!

  35. Mairead says:

    Billie Jean: “I’m ashamed to be a woman with you dumbass skeezers panting after douchebag, lame, hasbeen Jew wannabe actors; from movies to TV????

    Would you be less ashamed if we ‘skeezers’ were panting after douchebag, lame, hasbeen [sic] Christian/Athiest/Agnositic/Buddhist/Hindu/Muslim wannabe actors?

    I put it to you madam that you made a bigoted remark (in flagrant breach of the rules listed in bold below) and are ergo a bit of a moron. Now, be a dear and toddle off and incubate your paranoia about the New World Order.

    Oh and as for sneering at going from movies to tv – if it’s good enough for Bette mo’fo’in Davis, (not Jewish, you’ll be delighted to hear), it’s good enough both you and JG!

  36. Mrs.Darcy says:

    Jeff Goldblum is a middle aged man ho but I did fancy him back in the day. Remember when he was dating(married? can’t remember) Geena Davis, so cute! Just chiming in to agree with the questioning of C – heck even B list reference?! Wth? He might not be the flavour of the month but he’s starred in like gazillions of blockbusters (am sure he’s not hurting for money). I wish he’d go back to smaller, more interesting films but he seems content to cash the paychecks, oh well. Surprised the Rielle chick bagged him, can’t see her appeal I have to say. Plus he seems to only date super young women nowadays. Still, he will always be the original hot nerd in my book.

    I am so happy that everyone is up in arms at that hottie being classed as a C-lister.
