  • Rielle Hunter Calls Elizabeth Edwards 'Witch on Wheels' in New Memoir

    06/18/2012 6:32:16 PM PDT · by nickcarraway · 37 replies
    New York Post ^ | June 18, 2012
    Rielle Hunter, in a gossipy new memoir, calls the cancer-stricken wife of her lover, former presidential candidate John Edwards, a "witch on wheels" and claims that while they were furtively seeing each other he lied about having three other mistresses at the same time, according to a new report. Hunter, who has a four-year-old daughter with Edwards, says she wrote the book, "What Really Happened," to give young Frances Quinn "one entirely truthful public account of how she came into the world. After all, this is her story too." ABC News reported Monday that it had obtained a copy of...

    The Supreme Court is again at the center of a highly controversial policy debate, having just heard arguments for the Affordable Care Act. There's been much discussion about the justices' supposed political agendas. I've heard fear-mongering about government takeovers and rumors of increased business costs. But I haven't heard much about what's really at stake: the welfare of the American people -- specifically women. Women like my mother and the other mothers, wives, sisters and daughters who need preventive services to ensure that they are healthy. Our Constitution was created to "promote the general welfare." So a court that strikes...

    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...

    Elizabeth Edwards left everything to her children and made not a single mention of her philandering husband John in the will she signed just days before her death. Edwards lost her six-year battle with breast cancer on Dec. 7 and, in a last will and testament dated Dec. 1, made clear that her three children - and, by omission, not John Edwards - were to be the beneficiaries of her estate. The former vice presidential candidate and North Carolina senator’s name appears nowhere in the will. “All of my furniture, furnishings, household goods, jewelry, china, silverware and personal effects and...

    Elizabeth Edwards cut her louse of a spouse out of her will - less than a week before she died. The wronged wife of former presidential candidate John Edwards, who died last month after a courageous battle with breast cancer, left everything in her sole possession to their three children. "All of my furniture, furnishings, household goods, jewelry, china, silverware and personal effects and any automobiles owned by me at the time of my death I give and bequeath to my children," the will says. Edwards' eldest daughter Cate, a lawyer, was named as the executor of the will, according...

    No Forgiveness for John Edwards The National Enquirer reports that when John Edwards realized that the end was near he begged his betrayed wife for forgiveness, but Elizabeth refused to relent. On her deathbed, a hurt, angry Elizabeth screamed at John, saying ‘You ruined my life — I’ll NEVER forgive you!’ Reports say that John Edwards repeatedly broke down in tears, and actually doubled over with grief at Elizabeth’s bedside. But she showed John no remorse. Nothing he said could change Elizabeth’s mind. The only concession Elizabeth was willing to grant her cheating husband was to pray with him that...

Edwards, it was announced yesterday, learned over the Thanksgiving holiday that her cancer had spread to her liver.

    Chapel Hill, N.C. — Elizabeth Edwards, the political wife whose public battle with breast cancer, coping with marital infidelity and continued advocacy for the downtrodden raised her profile above that of her husband, died Tuesday. She was 61. Edwards died at her Chapel Hill home, where family and friends had gathered in recent days after doctors informed her that her cancer had spread and recommended that she not undergo further treatment. Edwards was first diagnosed with cancer in the waning days of the 2004 presidential campaign, when her husband, then-U.S. Sen. John Edwards, was the Democratic nominee for vice president....

Edwards, 61, the wife of former Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards, was briefly hospitalized recently, but she is now at home, and her family and friends are lending their support.

    Elizabeth Edwards, cancer victim and cheated-on spouse, sent disturbing voicemails to former John Edwards aide Andrew Young's wife who, interestingly, was largely out of the picture of the whole, sordid, Edwards scandal. Andrew Young is of course the former Edwards aide who is currently at the center of the whole unraveling of the Edwards affair into the scandal that it is, being the author of the tell-all expose on John Edwards called The Politician. These voicemails are disturbing because they portray Elizabeth Edwards in her own voice and words as an emotionally distraught woman who at the time was possibly...

She called her spouse a “hick” in front of other people and derided his parents as rednecks. One time, when a friend asked if John had read a certain book, Elizabeth burst out laughing. “Oh, he doesn’t read books,” she said. “I’m the one who reads books.” During the 2004 race, Elizabeth badgered and berated John’s advisers around the clock.

    Potential readers should not be deterred by the vaguely Hallmarkish cover—and subtitle—of this book, both of which may be blamed on the publisher. I’m assuming that Broadway Books has a packaging-and-editing style all its own, because on page 88 it makes Elizabeth Edwards tell us something that “Edmund Wilson, the incomparable twentieth-century literary critic, said.” Perhaps someone at the firm felt that this would explain just exactly who Wilson was to a reader who didn’t know, but the effect is to be condescending and to diminish the impact of reading a senator’s wife who is well able to cite Edmund...

If you absolutely hate talking about your husband having a love child with another woman, then DON'T write a book about his affair and then go on a publicity tour promoting the publication. Because if you do, you are sure to be asked highly embarrassing questions about the love child as happened to Elizabeth Edwards when she appeared on "The View" yesterday.

    Even a juicy political affair and an appearance on Oprah didn't help Elizabeth Edwards sell a lot of books. To say that her new memoir, Reflections, underperformed would be an understatement. The book trailed behind Michael J. Fox's memoir and Mark Levin's Liberty, only opening with a scan of 18,853 units. To put that into perspective: Fox's book scanned 36,321 units this past week, with a total of 138,128 since it's release. The battle of the books is on!

    It pains me to take Elizabeth Edwards to task for anything. She is suffering from terminal cancer and from assertions that her cheating husband fathered a child with a party girl. So my first instinct is to totally lay off. The only rap against her, it seems, is that she knew of an affair after John Edwards announced his presidential run and that she kept it secret. May I disagree? The ''cover-up'' was the good part. Some things are best left private. Elizabeth's book and Oprah outpouring drag the public under the couple's covers -- disclosure with no socially redeeming...

With the release of her memoir "Resilience" and self-flagellation book tour about her life with her cheating hubby, Mrs. E now seems about as believable as her husband. That is: Add the prefix "un." No one should expect the wife of a man with Edwards' hobbies to be completely forthcoming - which is why she never should have written the book.

    There are many elements of tragedy about the John Edwards scandal story currently being unfolded again in public, and on Oprah, due to the publication of his wife's (almost) tell-all book. However, let's face it, all this renewed attention to the foibles of John Edwards is sure to cause yet more late night comedian jokes. And perhaps the funniest bit of comedy yet is the unintentional humor provided by Huffington Post blogger, Henry Blodget, who provides financial advice to Edwards' mistress in such excruciating detail as to be highly comical. Keep in mind when reading Blodget's blog entry, "The Business...

    Elizabeth Edwards has hit the chat show circuit to hawk her new memoir “Resilience.” Her interview with Oprah airs Thursday. Elizabeth has some important lessons to teach the young women of today. The most important of these lessons is to be nothing like her, though I’m pretty sure that’s not the message she is trying to send. Typically, when someone whines about his or her circumstances, I take a common sense approach and start by blaming the victim. The fact is that bad things tend to happen to people who make bad, or at least dumb, decisions.

    How the mighty have fallen. John Edwards and his wife, Elizabeth, are back in the news because of a book written by the latter about her philandering husband. Even the New York Times which less than a year ago shunned any mention of the John Edwards scandal which was all over the Blogosphere has weighed in on his fate in the form of a Maureen Dowd column: Elizabeth Edwards would have made a wonderful candidate herself. But she poured everything into John. And then John betrayed her. And then John betrayed his staffers, going ahead with the 2008 campaign, letting...

    Elizabeth Edwards tells talk show host Oprah Winfrey that it's a "complicated question" if she still is in love with her husband, former presidential candidate and U.S. Sen John Edwards, after his admitted affair. In an episode of "The Oprah Winfrey Show" to air Thursday, Winfrey asks Edwards, "Are you still in love with him?" Edwards responds, "You know, that's a complicated question," in an excerpt provided in advance to The Associated Press by Harpo Productions. Winfrey also asks Edwards, "Is it a day by day thing?" And Edwards says, "Neither one of us is out the door so I...

    Asked if she is still in love with her husband, Elizabeth Edwards told Oprah Winfrey “that's a complicated question.” And when Winfrey asked about marriage, Edwards said, “Neither one of us is out the door so I guess it's day by day, but maybe it's month-by-month.” Edwards' appearance on Oprah Thursday marks her most extensive public comments since former Democratic presidential candidate and U.S. Sen. John Edwards acknowledged an affair last summer. Winfrey interviewed both Edwards at their sprawling, 28,000-foot Chapel Hill home. Her publicists released a partial transcript Tuesday of what they called “a no-holds-barred conversation, where no topic...

    DUmmie FUnnies ^ | May 5, 2009 | DUmmies and PJ-Comix
    The DUmmies just can't let go of their erstwhile hero, John Edwards. Despite everything that has happened, they still cling to him to the extent that they are peeved at his wife for writing an (almost) tell-all book about the Breck Girl. I say "almost" because I understand she didn't address whether the daughter of his mistress is really his. I think we already know the answer to that but apparently, Elizabeth prefers not to face that ugly fact. It's strange that the DUmmies are attacking Elizabeth because she is one of the very few public people to actually...

    National Enquirer ^ | February 4, 2009
    The ENQUIRER has learned exclusively that John Edwards' cancer-stricken wife Elizabeth threw out her cheating husband after he admitted his extramarital affair on national TV!   Now those close to brave Elizabeth are pushing her to reveal the secret split in her new book Resilience: Reflections on the Burdens and Gifts of Facing Life's Adversities, say sources. "The new book is Elizabeth's opportunity to admit that she did what any other wife and mother in America would have done - she did not accept her husband's philandering, and she tossed him out," said a close source. "Friends have told Elizabeth...

    Rx for infighting Politics is full of compromises, right? Well, consider this example: Elizabeth Edwards – wife of former Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards and currently a health care advisor to Sen. Barack Obama’s campaign – isn’t 100% behind the Democratic nominee’s health care plan. “We're on the verge of an Obama Presidency," said Edwards at George Washington University Monday night, and “I’m not that fond of his plan.” Edwards complained that Obama – like his Republican rival, Sen. John McCain -- views healthcare as a commodity, rather than a human right. Still, Edwards called the plan a step in...

    How much did Elizabeth Edwards, John Edwards’ wife, know about his affair with Rielle Hunter and when did she know it? Edwards has said that he told his wife about the affair “at the end of 2006” and that everything ended after that. Indeed, within days of the end of 2006, Web videos produced by Hunter about Edwards disappeared from his campaign Web site and from YouTube. Sources tell me that it was indeed Elizabeth Edwards who had the videos pulled down when she saw them. The theory among Edwards campaign insiders is that she finally put two and two...
