Report: John Edwards' Ex-Lover Rielle Hunter Going Ahead With Paternity Test
The New York Daily News ^ | 5/7/09

And you thought the John Edwards sex scandal couldn't get seamier.

The ex-senator's former lover - furious at being portrayed as a stalker in his wife's media tour - reportedly is taking revenge and will allow a paternity test for her baby after all.

Rielle Hunter previously refused to allow DNA testing on baby Frances, born in February 2008. Edwards, even after the admitted affair, insisted he wasn't the father.

Her friends said then she hoped they still had a future together and hoped to protect the philandering pol from further ruin.

But on the eve of Elizabeth Edwards' appearance on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" today to plug her new book, the National Enquirer reports that Hunter has changed her mind.

"Now she can see there's never going to be a future with John, and she feels he's lied about his promise to keep Elizabeth from trashing her in the book," an "insider" told the mag.

The Enquirer has had excellent access to Hunter, including tips about where to catch John Edwards sneaking around a hotel in the middle of the night. The exposés drove John Edwards from the 2008 presidential race.

Last year, John Edwards denied he was the father and offered to take a DNA test if Hunter would let him.

Times are tough and his mansion started looking better and better to her now.

She knows his career is toast, might as well cash in while there’s something worth getting.

Nice. This would mean he’d have to support the child, which is what he should have offered to do in the first place.

No, the lack of votes drove Edwards from the race.

I feel sorry for the baby. She’s an innocent bystander and she’s about to be used for extortion.

I wish these people would just. Go. AWAY.

Yep, there’s both revenge and money involved now,

This would be great fun to watch if their wasn’t young children involved.

Not me, I think she blundered with her vengeful, nasty screed. Once the paternity test shows it was Edwards, how is Lizzie going to stay married to him? She cant have it both ways, and now she's going to look like a hypocritical idiot as well as a naive idiot.

You make a good point....These women look pretty pathetic on TV standing by there cheating hubby’s...

I am not saying all marriages should break-up over adultery
however they should be kept as a private matter.....

I heard Elizabeth say, she only wanted her husband to be faithful, like she was begging him to do that one thing for her, if she married him...That should of been her *cue* to kick him to the curb....

I think even some liberal democrats are sickened by the idea of this oh-so-neatly coiffed pretty boy cheating on his beloved, liberal wife who has terminal breast cancer.

Now who didn’t see this coming after Mrs. Edwards called her “pathetic”? I’m sure Mr. Edwards will love having to have the new little one in the will and weekly child support payments. IMHO she might’ve kept it secret out of respect and love for John but I don’t think the same sentiment is extended to Elizabeth.

Long before this story broke, I considered Edwards to be one of the biggest empty suits in Politics.

The guy is a trial lawyer who made lots of money on phony (in my opinion) malpractice litigation. He (and many others like him- again in my opinion) is one of the main reasons for the increase in health costs.

The guy has no character and this episode should close the book on this creep.

women stand by dirtbag husbands because of children, marriage is meaningful, more than where hubby has placed his anatomy. Besides, she doesn’t want to give Rielle what she wants....John’s freedom.

John will pay child support no matter what, and after Liz passes, the guilt will eat him up...........

Right. And if he cheated, maybe she could forgive him..But what if it turns out he produced a love child that he will have to support for 20 years and leave money for in a will, is she still going to live the rest of her life with him?

It will make her look callow, and that she mostly cares about his big house and money; like she is nothing more than another cynical politician.. Thats what it will look like.

Yeah, married men will tell you how much they love you, but they run home to mama when they get caught. Meow

Point of order; we should not confuse married men, more specifically, men, with John Edwards.
