OPRAH WINFREY NABS EDWARDS MISTRESS FIRST TV INTERVIEW

ENQUIRER WORLD EXCLUSIVE! Oprah Winfrey has nabbed John Edwards' mistress  for her first TV interview!

The NATIONAL ENQUIRER can exclusively report that Rielle Hunter has decided to give Oprah access to her Charlotte, NC home for a TV interview that will air during May sweeps.

"Rielle is super excited to have Oprah come into her home," an insider  told The ENQUIRER exclusively.

"She's excited about giving her account of how she met John, how the affair began and what's in store for her future. Rielle also wants to clear the air about the GQ photos - she's basically doing it to get the  truth out and tell her side of the story."

Rielle has been in talks with ABC's Barbara Walters and Diane Sawyer but thought Oprah was "more spiritual and would get her," according to the insider.

The source also reveals that John Edwards encouraged Rielle to go on Oprah just like he encouraged her to do the GQ interview.

"John wants the world to see Rielle in a different light, not like the home wrecker she's been portrayed," added the insider.

As The ENQUIRER has reported previously an indictment is expected soon for Edwards, the former Chapel Hill heartthrob, after a Federal grand jury investigation into misuse of Presidential campaign funds to buy a conspiracy of silence.
