Before she died, Elizabeth Edwards carefully crafted a devastating 3-pronged plan of revenge to punish John Edwards for betraying her with Rielle Hunter, and then lying about it for months before finally telling her the truth. See How to Get a Cheater to Tell You the Truth about His Affair
If the details in the National Enquirer are to be believed, Elizabeth used her parting statements to John on her deathbed, the arrangements for her funeral, and the amendments to her will to ensure that John Edwards will pay for cheating on her for the rest of his life.
A Well Thought Out 3-Pronged Plan of Revenge
Though she struggled to forgive John Edwards for his affair, and urges her children, her friends, and the public to the same, for Elizabeth Edwards that forgiveness never came.
Elizabeth bided her time and carefully plotted her revenge on John Edwards, Rielle Hunter, and John and Rielles lovechild, 2-year-old little Quinn.
As reported in the National Enquirer, which first broke the story about John Edwards and Rielle Hunters affair, below are the details of Elizabeth Edwards 3-pronged master-plan of revenge.
On Elizabeth Edwards Deathbed
As she lay dying, Elizabeth Edwards took steps to ensure that John Edwards understood the full import of how deeply hed hurt her with his affair. She even sent a message to his mistress, Rielle.
During his bedside vigil in in Elizabeth Edwards final hours, John Edwards repeatedly begged his betrayed wife for her forgiveness. But she adamantly refuse to forgive her cheating husband for his affair. It was reported that as she lay dying Elizabeth angrily screamed at John: You ruined my life Ill NEVER forgive you! words that will probably haunt him for the rest of his life. See Elizabeth Edwards Got Her Revenge on John Edwards Before She Died andSee Rielle Hunter and Other Modern Day Mistresses Who Ruined Their Lovers Lives Elizabeth Edwards also unleashed her anger at her husbands mistress before she died. An insider told close to the family told the National Enquirer that Elizabeth Edwards cursed Rielle Hunter, yelling at John that Rielle should know that for destroying their family, she would rot in Hell.
At Elizabeth Edwards Funeral
Elizabeth Edwards funeral arranged were designed to further punish and humiliate John Edwards.
While John Edwards was permitted to attend Elizabeths funeral and sit up front with their three children, he was not allowed to speak. Elizabeth Edwards was eulogized by their 28-year-old daughter Cate and two of Elizabeths closest friends. Insiders told the National Enquirer that Elizabeth Edwards deliberately excluded John Edwards from any official role.
To add insult to injury, John Edwards name was not mentioned anywhere on the printed funeral program which the mourners received.
In Elizabeth Edwards Will
Elizabeth Edwards will was cleverly amended to exact the ultimate revenge to all parties involved John Edwards, Rielle Hunter and even little Quinn, as you will see from the details below. See Elizabeth Edwards Will Amended to Heap Further Revenge on John Edwards and How to Legally and Financially Get Revenge on a Cheating Mate
Elizabeth Edwards amended her will so that if John Edwards marries, or even lives with his mistress, Rielle Hunter, he will forfeit a sizeable portion of the couples $53 million fortune. See As America Mourned Elizabeth Edwards, Rielle Hunter Envisioned Marrying John. Elizabeths amended will also stipulates that John Edwards cannot call off the sale of their multi-million family mansion in Chapel Hill and move in with his mistress, Rielle and their daughter, Quinn.
Under the terms of Elizabeths Edwards will, both the family mansion in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, and the familys vacation home on Figure Eight Island, are now off-limits to her husbands mistress, Rielle Hunter.
In her amended will, Elizabeth Edwards also seeks to ban little Quinn John and Rielles lovechild from ever seeing or even coming in contact with her 12-year-old half- sister, Emma Claire, and her 10-year-old half-brother, Jack, - John and Elizabeths two youngest children.
Elizabeth Edwards further restructured her will in such a way that Johns lovechild, little Quinn is cut off from ever receiving any of the funds intended for the Edwards children, Jack, Emma Claire, and Cate.
In one final act of revenge, Elizabeth arranged things so that John Edwards is banned from making any major decisions regarding his own children, Jack and Emma Claire, unless he has the approval his 28-year-old daughter, Cate.
Those Closest to Elizabeth Edwards Probably Never Knew
Elizabeth Edwards put on a brave front for her children, the public and those around her.
It appears that Elizabeths closest friends had no idea how her heart was savaged and ripped apart by her husbands affair. See Elizabeth Edwards Showed Us Infidelity from the Betrayed Wifes Point of View.
The lengths an angry and unforgiving Elizabeth Edwards went to, to seek revenge and punish and humiliate John Edwards, gives us some idea of how deeply she was hurt. See Revenge Cheating is a Common Female Response to Infidelity.
Anger and bitterness are dangerous and destructive emotions. Elizabeth Edwards efforts to seek revenge probably hastened her death.
John Edwards will have to live with that knowledge for the rest of his life.
I think this is a cruel attack on a lovely woman who truly loved and was betrayed. I see no revenge in anything. This thread should be removed. It is cruel to HER.
How does a wife do this in a will with joint assets while still married?
Something does not add up.
A woman’s wrath is second only to God’s. What a horrible mess he made. She is in peace now and will wait for him with Jesus by her side.
“Anger and bitterness are dangerous and destructive emotions.”
Some way, some how, JE will pay for his despicable cheating. Not being angry and full of revenge is hard. “I will never stoop so low as to allow another man to make me hate him” Good advice, often hard to follow.
She must have been Irish or Italian, because she had the memory condition that erases everything but the grudges and vendettas.
RIP, EE! God luv ya!!!
This story stinks of BS to me.
None of us here on FR agreed with Elizabeth politically, but this posthumous sliming is a bit much.
John Edwards is the scoundrel, not his late wife!
ok, i can understand wanting to get even with John, and Rielle...but Quinn had no choice to be born...
I don’t think it is cruel. I think it is a MONUMENT to this woman’s GREATNESS! She took justice into her own hands. What a brilliant woman,
Elizabeth Edwards earned what she got, I mean in her life not the way she died. Remember her cruel comments about Cheney’s daughter during the 2004 campaign?
She was far from the saint the liberal media tries to portray her as.
I suspect his cheating was John’s way of getting back at her for the years of mental abuse she inflicted on him with her personality. Seen it a thousand times before.
Of course, he always was a scumbag too. They were a perfect match.
Typical Liberals, all for compassion and giving money away to the poor in public and selfish heels in private.
In the old days they used to just utter a deathbed curse. Then everyone would wait on the condemned’s fate and the completion of the moral lesson. Ah well, another fine tradition lost to the ages.
This doesn’t add up. Most of those will requirements would likely be void as against public policy.
Sounds like a first class bit@h. No wonder he found a nicer woman. Prob no nicer before, not a bit.
True, I also recall how she judged her neighbor then harassed the guy after she learned he was a conservative. Then she disparaged him to the media. Yeah, EE was a wicked bitch.
Did you know her?
Seems the wealth was more from her side of the family than John’s. She did what I think anyone would do under a similar set of circumstances. She protected her children’s inheritance from her ambulance-chasing lawyer ex. I’d call her smart.
Lucky for the kids that the dims’ plan to take the entire estate of the rich away from the family hasn’t jelled just yet.
I agree. The way my lawyer explained it, the surviving parent gets automatic custody, unless proven unfit.
I don’t believe most of this is even plausible.
This “lovely woman” knew what a rat she was attempting to foist off on the USA as a viable President as she served as his “don’t attack the poor dying woman with cancer” attack dog.
I have no sympathy for her.
These nasty people deserved one another.
That EE would happily foist her loser husband on the public knowing his character as she did reflects very poorly on her.
How can she stop JE from taking his children, he is their father? This does not make any sense to me.
You said “She is in peace now and will wait for him with Jesus by her side”. This lady has been through a lot and I truly hope she is with Christ but it’s not clear she was a Christian.
There are two ways to die naturally. In peace and in angst. If we are to believe the article written, it appears Elizabeth died in angst. Anger may have some effect on the nature of how cancer eats away at the body. I’ve heard so many times that laughter and love have healing properties.
Agreed though, a poor article based on opinion.
“The best revenge is living well”.
Sounds like a shrew and a harpie. He should take the hit financially, He’s sure to walk away with a few million. Then go live a happy life with a kinder woman.
And write a lurid book about her meaness. That’s just me.
Well it seems that EE was a hateful lying democrat lawyer to the very end.
How wonderful for her. What did she really expect when she married a hateful lying democrat lawyer?
I don’t get how one spouse (now dead) can stop another from making major decisions for their minor children. I can see everything else she did in terms of gifts, asset protection, etc. They are his children too, she did not have more than 50% say in their lives alive, how can she when she’s dead?
“I suspect his cheating was Johns way of getting back at her for the years of mental abuse she inflicted on him with her personality”
I second the motion.
This doesn’t make sense...Edwards has the estate.
Also, as for “poor” Elizabeth, she was in her glory as her husband sued Doctors and ravaged NC medical practice, talking about “hearing those embryos talk to me..” he sent malpractice insurance soaring out of site and ruined an entire industry.
Then he builds a 28,000 sq. ft. estate with a 17,000 sq. ft. “Play barn” in Chapel Hill. She knew what was going on and took full advantage to play victim. She star-gazed at occupying the White House and used her medical condition as a weapon to draw votes.
It is too bad young children lose their mother before they grow to adulthood. Elizabeth Edwards is a victim like Hillary is a victim...
Most men will cheat given the opportunity.
Yep...I too remember how she attacked the neighbor for being conservative...she, however was living next door in the biggest single family dwelling in Chapel Hill....that’s a limosine liberal for you.
I can understand her anger and hurt she was treated very badly by her husband. She could very well have planned all these things but I would not like to go to meet God with so much hate in my heart. I hope that under the same circumstances I would forgive him.
While her husband would make anyone's skin crawl, she chose to publicly stand by him and to try to foist his incompetent and supremely blackmailable carcass on our country.
While nothing she could do to her husband could tarnish her at this point, she was far from a "lovely woman."
Man there are some bitter b*tches on this thread. Better read some Holy Scripture. Her bitterness and lack of forgiveness has no impact on the idiots eternal progression (read that the low-life John Edwards) but is a significant stain on her soul. Imagine meeting the Lord with that hatred still in your heart. I pray I never do so.
If they weren’t divorced she didn’t have much say in anything that was not her sole and seperate property. I’m sorry about what happened to her, both in having a cheating husband and in getting cancer, but she can’t keep him from his children and she has no say over money he earned.
true. but it doesn’t mean she’s entitled to any of elizabeths money
Then how will GOD be able to forgive you Mrs. Edwards?
In all the other matters, I say good for her. Although I don't see how the order that John has no authority over his own small children could ever stand up in court, she was a lawyer and should know that.
After reading the Examiner account; several thoughts.
Elizabeth Edwards had every right to be pizzed at John; but there is no escaping the scripture that states that if we do not forgive others, God will not forgive us. Pretty shakey ground for someone about to step out into eternity, to be yelling unforgiveness to someone; even a cheating, lowlife scumbag husband. She should have left the revenge in God’s hands. He is SO much more thorough than anything Liz could do. Rom 12:19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.
Also; I don’t think that a lot of the stuff SHE thought she could control after her death merely by SAYING so, will NOT actually hold water. Courts are pretty edgy about allowing someone “a hand from the grave.”
i don’t get that. Why is she a harpie? because she’s pissed that her husband cheated on her?and his mistress is now the kind woman because why? because she’d sleep with another womans husband. Boy, is your view skewed.
We just did this!
You’re posting a gossip column as news!
I agree on most of this being unenforceable. NC is a separate property state vs. Community property. I don’t see how most of the $53 mil was contributed by her. Sounds like most of her time was spent having and casing for children. If I remember correctly he was the once getting massive settlements and making the money.
Sounds like she can put whatever she wants in her will but whether or not it is any good is the question.
John Edwards repeatedly begged his betrayed wife for her forgiveness. But she adamantly refuse to forgive her cheating husband for his affair. It was reported that as she lay dying Elizabeth angrily screamed at John: You ruined my life Ill NEVER forgive you! words that will probably haunt him for the rest of his life. The writer incorrectly assumes several things. First that John Edwards has a conscience, second that he has a soul, for he is , after all, a lawyer- the lowest form of life on planet earth. Another subset of this sad story is that Elizabeth (a lawyer) is metaphorically “screwing” John (another lawyer)from the grave. The answer to this problem is that John can “channel” Elizabeth from the grave and get forgiveness from her ghost...
“During his bedside vigil in in Elizabeth Edwards final hours, John Edwards repeatedly begged his betrayed wife for her forgiveness. But she adamantly refuse to forgive her cheating husband for his affair. It was reported that as she lay dying Elizabeth angrily screamed at John: You ruined my life Ill NEVER forgive you!”

I thoroughly believe that God reserves a special place in Hell for those who wantonly partake in the destruction of His covenant of marriage.
Many in NC knew John Edwards’ wife as a vindictive and sometimes cruel woman. Edwards married her to further his ambitions and she never let him forget it, belittled him publicly at times. While he no doubt made out quite well as an ambulance chaser prior to his very shortlived political career, I have no doubt that the vast majority of any estate was actually hers.
Spiting a child is a little much even for her, though. I smell at least a certain amount of sensationalism.
Who has primary custody of Elizabeth’s two little children? if it is John, the keeping them apart from Rielle’s daughter will not stand up in court. And if it is the eldest daughter, does John not have standing to fight that custody arrangement? Though if they take the children’s wishes into the decision, maybe they have chosen to live with their sister?
I despise John and hate what he did to her. He is such a low life. I hope his other dealings get him in prison.
I hope this is not true. Hating and cursing is no way to prepare yourself to meet your maker.
“Elizabeth Edwards, (with her creepy voicemails), comes across as menacing and unstable.”
I would think this clause would be contestable and thus open the whole thing up to being contested. I hope she set aside a big pile of money to defend the will.
