John Edwards' mistress Rielle Hunter will open up to Oprah Winfrey in first televised interview since having an affair with the former presidential candidate and giving birth to their now two-year-old daughter, Quinn.

Harpo Productions announced today that Rielle will be a guest on The Oprah Winfrey Show, but did not specify a date, Access Hollywood reports.

Rielle broke her silence to GQ magazine last month in her first published interview about the scandal.

“I feel comfortable talking now, because Johnny went public and made a statement admitting paternity,” Rielle said of telling all.

“I didn’t feel like I could ever speak until he did that,” she continues in the GQ interview. “Because had I spoken, I would have emasculated him. And I could not emasculate him. He’s very supportive of me talking now.


John admitted in January that he was Quinn's father after initially denying paternity questions. He is now separated from wife Elizabeth Edwards.
