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...
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.
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.

John Edwards is moving the mother of his love-child into his upscale, waterfront North Carolina neighborhood and will help raise their baby, says the National Enquirer in yet another exclusive report on the disgraced former Presidential candidate.

The National Enquirer is reporting that secret DNA tests confirm that John Edwards is indeed the father of former campaign worker Rielle Hunters' 18-month-old daughter Frances.

Remember the rumors about John Edwards' love child with mistress Rielle Hunter? Those reports were quashed when Edwards' former aide Andrew Young said that the baby was actually his. Well, turns out Young lied—Edwards is the actual father, according to Young, but the aide agreed to take the fall and even move in with Hunter because he so believed in John Edwards. And it gets better (or worse, depending on your perspective…): there's a John Edwards sex tape floating around somewhere!
So, John Edwards has admitted to having an extra-marital affair. Now what? It looks like he probably won't get an invite to the Democratic National Convention but is there any other fallout? Is this even a real story other than we won't have a handsome boy millionaire as the next VP?
