Who's the woman at the center of the Edwards scandal?

Most of what is known about Rielle (pronounced "Riley") Hunter comes from a magazine interview she did in 2005 with novelist Jay McInerney, a friend from the 1980s. She was born in Fort Lauderdale as Lisa Druck. She lived in New York in her 20s, then moved to Hollywood to try to become an actress. That's where she married Alexander Hunter and changed her name. She was hired by the Edwards campaign on a six-month contract in 2006 to produce videos for his Web site.
