Los Angeles - (Savage in Limbo): "It's just a lil ole tongue-in-cheek teaser," the former Hollywood brothelkeeper chuckled today, "shot by pals of Jay McInerney!"
Braun was talking to reporters following the release of Zaprudder-like footage of Senator John Edwards and lover Rielle Hunter 'shagging like bunnies' in the Bel Air Hotel.
"Jay's sure gotta kinky sense of humor! He an Rielle - or Lisa Jo Druck as she used to be known - used to be an item, back in her equestrian show-jumpin days.
"Then he called her 'ostensibly jaded, sexually voracious' and a hard-assed social climber in his 1988 novel Story of My Life.
"Lotsa snide references to her Pa James Druck's 'whorse' murders insurance fraud scandal, about a sick plot to electrocute horses for insurance money.
"Anyway, relationship caved in when her prize showjumper Henry-the-Hawk dropped dead in the middle of a dressage number. She dumped Jay for some Big Oil dude."
The notorious ex-madam also said she'd seen some of the alleged Edwards/Hunter sex tape footage:
"Sure it's got some folks riled this week!" Braun continued.
"But check that soft-focus trembly lens stuff, an you see it's just actors - doubles! - cavortin in make-believe la-la-land.
"Even that pregnant Rielle belly's just some flab an wobble an coconut butter shine.
"Besides, if it really had been Edwards you'd see a scrawny, 57 year-old ass and wrinkly scrotum. And the rug - the famous Edwards hairpiece - sure looks like real hair to me!"
