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 Elizabeths dying wish, screams a line on the supermarket tabs cover. Below that: Rielle tells his two young kids: CALL ME MOMMY!
An Edwards spokeswoman declined to comment and Hunters lawyer didnt 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.

What a clown this douche is.
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.
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)
But I repeat myself.
How does she explain John & Elizabeth
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.
Well, disengage and get back to your stations.
Never mind about Mr. Edwards first wife....what a skank the second wife is.
They both know exactly the kind of person they are getting.
Now, she just supports his extreme narcissism.
When this little girl grows up and discovers the truth....
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.
One word: tacky
Two words: poor taste
To say the least
“and becomes a respected voice in the Donk party?”
I’d say that he’s about as respected as any Democrat,at least around here.
He’s a pig.
If so, then he’s crazier than I thought... Or maybe it’s just that no other woman will touch him now.
she just supports his extreme narcissism.” _________________
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.
I’m just waiting for the next time he runs for office to find out who he’s going to cheat on Rielle with. /sarc
Slimebag and Nutjob: New Reality Series, coming soon.
Wow!!!! What a piece of human excreitment!
His wife is not even dead two months!
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.
awwwwwww well isn’t that sweet.
I think you are right!
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.
Mrs. Edwards is dead...long live Mrs. Edwards.
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....
Sure, like this is going to last....they both are scum, it is too bad there are children involved.....I feel bad for them......
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.
Who does he think he is - Max Bialystock?
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.
Thank you for doing the dirty work today.
Question is, would he have been a worse president than hussein? Hard call for me.
Agree with you completely, EXCEPT I prefer to call Silky the “Breck Girl.” I giggle every time I hear that.
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???)
What a swarmy, steaming piece of dung Edwards is — all his money won't wash his sins away.
