    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...

    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.

    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...

    Elizabeth Edwards, the estranged wife of former Democratic North Carolina Senator and Vice Presidential candidate John Edwards died today, at the age of 61, after a grueling six year battle against cancer.

    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....

    Chapel Hill, N.C. — Elizabeth Edwards' cancer has spread, and her health has deteriorated, multiple sources told WRAL News Monday. 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. She was first diagnosed with cancer in the final weeks of the 2004 presidential campaign, when her husband, who was at the time a U.S. senator from North Carolina, was the Democratic nominee for vice president.

"Elizabeth has been advised by her doctors that further treatment of her cancer would be unproductive. She is resting at home with family and friends," the Edwards family says in a statement to PEOPLE. On Monday, Edwards, 61, posted a Facebook message to her friends.
