Elizabeth Edwards' passing may give Rielle wedding hopes...But will John go along with her plans?
It's been just a couple of days since Elizabeth Edwards has passed. And, while her family, friends and the public are all mourning her death, rumor has it that the mistress of John Edwards, Rielle Hunter, is eager to become the next Mrs. Edwards soon.
According to what we're reading, RadarOnline, which claims to have the exclusive scoop on the matter, quotes a source close to both Rielle and the Edwards family: "Rielle has been very patient through all of this. She still believes that John is her soul mate, and she thinks that they're going to get married."
According to reports, John Edwards was present as Elizabeth passed away.
When Elizabeth Edwards passed away on Tuesday, after losing a 6-year-long battle to breast cancer, her estranged husband, John Edwards,was by her side, leaving many to wonder if she had finally forgiven him.
Although the last years of John and Elizabeth's marriage had played out like a soap opera, (one with too many reoccuring appearances by a blonde named Rielle Hunter,) we wonder what it meant to Elizabeth that the man who had sweetly kissed her on the forehead after their first date, who later proposed with an $11 ring that she kept on for nearly the rest of her life, and, who had uttered "til death do us part" as he stood across from her in a gray tuxedo, surrounded by their family and friends in a small, Chapel Hill clapboard church, had finally kept at least one of his wedding vows?
Frustrated that she can't marry John Edwards, Rielle reportedly looked up her old Hollywood beaus.
In a laughable twist to the whole John Edwards cheating on his wife situation, his mistress, Rielle Hunter, is now supposedly straying on the former U.S. Senator, according to the National Enquirer.
The way we hear it, it looks like Rielle seems to be frustrated she couldn't marry her lover. So, according to a source that spoke to the Enquirer, "marrying a famous actor is high up in those dreams of hers!" That's why she'd set out to find her old flames like John Cusack and Matt LeBlanc in L.A.—but as it turns out, didn't end up getting very far finding either of them.
Elizabeth Edwards talks to Matt Lauer about the new chapter in her life and book.
In her first television interview since separating from her husband, former Presidential candidate John Edwards, Elizabeth Edwards speaks to Matt Lauer (a weird choice if you think about his recent bouts of infidelity) about new chapters— both in her life and in her book Resilience, which was released when their marriage was still in tact and she, publicly defending him. My how things have changed. Below, some of Elizabeth's most poignant lines from the interview.
As she prepares for death, Elizabeth Edwards grooms her eldest daughter to take over.
Elizabeth Edwards does not want John Edwards raising their children Emma (12) and Jack (10) after she is gone, especially if Rielle Hunter remains in the picture. And can you blame her? That nightmare scenario, however, is one that she is having to confront amidst reports that her health has "taken a turn for the worse lately." "She does not want Rielle anywhere near them," says a source to the New York Daily News, a fear made valid throughout the homewrecker's rambling GQ interview last March. After all, Rielle has made it abundantly clear that she remains patiently waiting with unconditional love to re-unite with her Johnny in marriage after Elizabeth's death. A sentiment to which Elizabeth replies, not over or in spite of my dead body.
After love child and alleged porn star dalliance, Mad Mel tries to win back ex-wife Robyn Gibson.
Now that Mel Gibson's relationship with Oksana Grigorieva has come to an ignominious end, the father of eight is trying to reconcile with his ex-wife, Robyn Gibson, mother of seven of those. And this comes just as a Polish pornographer says she's also slept with Mad Mel.
Rielle Hunter denies she ended John Edwards' marriage. Do homewreckers get unfair blame for affairs?
Rielle Hunter denies she ended John Edwards' marriage. Do homewreckers get unfair blame for affairs? "Well, his relationship with her and the problems in it really had nothing to do with me," Rielle Hunter said. "Infidelity doesn't happen in healthy marriages. The break in the marriage happens before the infidelity. And that break happened, you know, two and a half decades before I got there. So the home was wrecked already. I was not the Home Wrecker."
Rielle Hunter talks about love, magnetic fields and her star-crossed relationship with John Edwards.
Perhaps most vexing to Elizabeth — besides the fact that Rielle comes across as the likable, charismatic yang to her yin, besides the mother with child come hither posturing — would be the unsolicited love and relationship advice that peppers the 10-page interview. "Being is free," when it comes to love, and Rielle will show you how... how to approach a man, treat him like a man, nurture a trusting relationship and deal with outside dynamics, i.e. his wife. Below, some tidbits of relational truth:
A sex-scandal mistress with the moral high ground? Newsweek thinks so.
Newsweek just ran a provocative piece on Rielle Hunter and her "quiet dignity" as the other woman. While it is true that we've heard little and seen less on that front, most of us thought that it was because she was getting paid a pretty penny to stay mum. Or just that she was still sooo in love with John Edwards that she was off somewhere tending their nest and planning their Dave Matthews wedding. Dignity was not the word on our lips -- but should it have been?
