Reports: John Edwards engaged to Rielle Hunter

By: Jennifer Epstein January 6, 2011 06:18 PM EST

Former presidential candidate John Edwards is engaged to longtime mistress Rielle Hunter, according to a report.

The Jan. 17 issue of the National Enquirers says that the ex-North Carolina senator asked the mother of his lovechild to marry him only three weeks after burying his wife, Elizabeth, who died from cancer. The couple is said to be tying the knot some time this summer.

A copy of Elizabeth Edwards’ last will and testament made public on Wednesday left all her possessions to their three children - Cate, Emma Claire and Jack - and included no mention of John, her husband of 33 years.

“Heartless cheater defies Elizabeth’s dying wish,” screams a line on the supermarket tab’s cover. Below that: “Rielle tells his two young kids: ‘CALL ME MOMMY!”

An Edwards’ spokeswoman declined to comment and Hunter’s lawyer didn’t immediately respond to messages seeking comment.

“I do know that I love him and that love is till death do us part, and probably beyond,” Hunter recently told GQ magazine. “We have a child together, so at the very least we will be co-parents together.”

The Enquirer has in the past been both right and wrong on the Edwards-Hunter relationship.

The tabloid first broke the news in 2007 that the two were having an affair and the paper later revealed the lovechild she gave birth to in early 2008 was fathered by Edwards, and not by his former aide Andrew Young, as had been claimed.

Of course he is. What an embarassment he must be to his children.

Wow...speechless. She better get right with God before her own death, because comments like that aren't going to win her any points with the man upstairs.

Let me be the first to say, congratulations! You deserve each other...

Is the wedding still planned for a skyscraper, with Dave Matthews Band playing? Sorry, I can't make it. I hate Dave Matthews band, and I don't go to the wedding of scum. (hmmm, trying to imagine what her bridal shower will look like. She'll probably be jumping out of a cake. If that's not too classy for her)

So how long before Boy Blunder is “rehabilitated” by the press and becomes a respected voice in the Donk party?

She won’t testify against him if she is his wife. I think that is why he is marrying her.

In this case it's hard to find joy in the hard life Elizabeth Edwards endured but she was an ugly leftist and they are the vile enemy.

Ahhh, a marriage made in heaven, it will be full of trust and love. She will never trust him because he cheated on his wife to be with her. Love because she loves money. Oh they better hurry I suspect he will be in a orange jumpsuit and time now.

The guy is just plain slimy! Same class of person as H Reid.

I’d say that he’s about as respected as any Democrat,at least around here.

If so, then he’s crazier than I thought... Or maybe it’s just that no other woman will touch him now.

It has become clear that Edwards fell victim to narcissism during his campaign, and also that witnesses and consultants saw Elizabeth as a shrew toward her husband, pushy, all elbows and beligerant. The affair was not a surprise under such circumstances, but the choice of women was certainly poor. Elizabeth did or did not have cancer when the affair began?

The media would love to destroy Edwards further, if that’s possible, and I don’t think I will be participating in that.
Enough. He has been vanquished, he has stayed low, even humble, and is now a widow, with a young child, and may love Hunter. He deserves a quiet and redeemed life, if we believe in forgiveness at all, whether we like Hunter or not, and I am no fan.

Neither he nor his wife were any kind of prizes. There were book excerpts on FR over a year ago. They told about how the Mrs constantly told people that he was stupid and unread and would still be barefoot and poor if it wasn’t for her. During his campaign for Prez she also ordered political staff around like servants. They excerpts eye opening.

Of course he wants to get married. He can’t cheat if he’s single. Plus, he probably still has this weird fantasy that he can be president some day and he can schmooze rich widows to fund him. He’s beyond creepy, but then he’s a trial lawyer so that’s almost redundant.

Gretchen Wilson’s song “Homewrecker” comes to mind.
Rielle latched on to Silky with full knowledge that he was married. She is a tramp and Silky is too.

I feel horrible for the three children. Imagine having to go and live with the woman who helped destroy your parent’s marriage. The new wife will always see the “old” wife in the children’s eyes. IMHO

I’d bet that marriage was long dead before Hunter came on the scene. They usually are.

And here I thought all that dramatic, National Enquirer deathbed stuff between Elizabeth and John was just a bunch of tabloid fiction... I didn’t believe even John Edwards would be so crass and classless as to show up at his wife’s deathbed and ask her BLESSING on his relationship with his mistress. But, apparently, it’s true.

I chuckle even now at myself for doubting the depravity of all humans — but particularly the likes of a John Edwards....

Yep, didn’t take long to folow his schlong once he found out he would not get any money.

We all know he was a louse. Though, he could have allowed a decent interval to pass before he made the engagement annoucement—even if it were only for the kids sake. But, then, life is all about him isn’t it.

I agree. His cruel betrayal likely hasted his wife’s death. In cancer cases and some other illnesses, one is advised to avoid stress. I disagreed with many of her views, but I never wished this kind of end for her.

Watch..the Skunk and Skunkess will have a big to do which will include all the kids..I hope the older ones tell the Skunks to shove it.
I was no fan of Elizabeth. And she played a part in the cover up of this mess so that her hope of being FL would come true. But the kids don’t deserve any of this.

I’m going to play devil’s advocate here...so what? If he’s found love, good luck to him. He’s paid the price, he’s lost everything. I don’t begrudge him love like some here would.....from all accounts Elizabeth was a shrew. Sometimes men cheat for a reason, not saying it’s right, just sayin’.

(How’s that for playing the devil???)

Oh, gracious. John “Haircut” Edwards is going to marry his mistress now that he's buried his wife. Isn't that just precious?

What a swarmy, steaming piece of dung Edwards is — all his money won't wash his sins away.
