Rielle Hunter’s highly anticipated interview with Oprah Winfrey airs tomorrow, and ABC News has a preview. Hunter says she—and “everyone who knew all the facts and knew the truth”—begged John Edwards not to do the interview with ABC’s Bob Woodruff in which he admitted having an affair but denied fathering Hunter’s child. Elizabeth, she claims, was the one who insisted on the interview.

“She wanted him to speak the truth,” Hunter says, but Elizabeth “didn’t know the truth.” John didn’t “come clean” with her until after the interview, Hunter says.
