Have you heard that the woman who allegedly had the love child of Democratic politician John Edwards was something of a literary in-joke among a certain class of decadent writers? The woman whose real name is Rielle Hunter was fictionalized as the over-sexed Alison Poole in a novel by Jay McInerney. Later she showed up in two of Bret Eason Ellis's novels, Glamorama and American Psycho. Gawker has the clip from American Psycho discussing Poole/Hunter. And, after the jump, you can check out the latest reworking of American Psycho, this one staring a toddler.
