We're taking a look at some of the worst mistresses of all time to flaunt their way onto front pages.
Rielle Hunter presumably has slept with 34 men and has their names written down.
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."
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:
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?
The National Enquirer is reporting that John Edwards has asked his baby's mama, Rielle Hunter, to marry him — and that she has said "yes." Meanwhile, somewhere Elizabeth Edwards is saying "over my dead body."
John Edwards is such a douche. He just loves the Dave Matthews Band. Of course he does. He and ex-lover Rielle Hunter love Dave Matthews so much that the Charlottesville-crooner had a special place in their post-Elizabeth fantasy wedding mix.
Although Elizabeth Edwards has had divorce papers semi-ready for nearly a year, it wasn't until fairly recently that her legal separation with John Edwards has become legit. What pushed her over the edge? We can think of a few things...
Gawker is reporting that John Edwards has a sex tape... a sex tape dirtier than you would think a $400-dollar-haircut-getting, former Presidential candidate could produce. Sorry, John. You're not going to be able to outrun this one. Even in Haiti. Here's what we know:
John Edwards admitted he was the father of Rielle Hunter's 2-year-old daughter on the Today show this morning. Hunter is the staffer that Edwards had an affair with during the 2008 presidential campaign while his wife Elizabeth battled cancer.
Celeb Love recently reported on some new, eye-opening details of John and Elizabeth Edwards' marriage and now, thanks to The National Enquirer, the soap opera continues. According to the mag, Elizabeth threatened to finally divorce John after Christmas and booted him from their home. John spent the next few bleary-eyed days at the Edwards' vacation home in North Carolina, where he hit up the local bars and hit on any woman who moved. Apparently, none of these women were interested in being the next Rielle Hunter, so despite John's best efforts, he always went home alone.
Over the last ten years, we've watched our favorite celebs hook up, break up, break down, flip out, and start over. With all of its love triangles, legal battles, family dramas, and political scandals, the "Naughties" certainly earned its wicked name!
If you can't trust a former personal injury lawyer then who can you trust? According to leaked documents, the former Vice Presidential candidate and former North Carolina Senator John Edwards made some outlandish promises to mistress and possible baby's mama Rielle Hunter. Former Edwards aide, Andrew Young, is said to be pitching a book with some damning evidence about Edwards and some of those details were leaked to mainstream press.
