On ABC's "Good Morning America" on Friday former John Edwards adviser Andrew Young claimed that Edwards' mistress Rielle Hunter lied to Oprah Winfrey on her broadcast Thursday.

"She is deflecting the blame and wants to make everybody the villain," Young said in the interview.

His wife, Cheri Young, who also appeared on the program, said: "I think she's had plastic surgery."
