John Edwards Moves Ex-Lover, Child Closer To Home

John Edwards

Cancer-stricken Elizabeth is furious over spending her final days with "the other woman."

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. Although lacking proof, sources close to other-woman Rielle Hunter say they believe Edwards is paying for her move.

Insiders close to the other camp corroborate that John is definitely behind Rielle's move: "There's absolutely no way that he didn't approve or arrange her moving closer to him—it's all part of his new plan to do the right thing," they say.

Although in the past he has vigorously denied his involvement in the procreation of 18-month-old Frances, and even going as far as paying off former colleague Andrew Young to claim parentage in his place, he has now apparently "embraced fatherhood and wants to be intimately involved in the life of daughter."John Edwards Sex Tape.

Elizabeth, meanwhile, is less than pleased at the arrangement, to put it mildly.

She's always figured the child may be John's, but the positive DNA result really floored her. And as if that wasn't bad enough, John told Elizabeth he needed to be in his daughter's life—and that Rielle was moving to North Carolina. He told Elizabeth he was tired of all the lies, and that's why he was ready to publicly admit Frances is his baby. That's when Elizabeth exploded! In a fit of rage, she grabbed a suitcase and started packing her things ... [The National Enquirer]

Despite reports of martial discord from the tabloids, Elizabeth is still keeping on a happy face, saying on a Wednesday night appearance on Larry King Live that "things are going fine" with John.

My expectation is that, at some point, something happens. And I hope for the sake of this child that it happens, you know, in a quiet way. We're getting the children ready for a new school year, she said. Everything seems to be going pretty smoothly at my house. [US Magazine]

The poor woman, if only her troubles ended there. Diagnosed in 2007 with incurable breast cancer, Elizabeth also provided King with an update on her health: "The numbers don't look that optimistic, but I feel good," she says. "And I've had recent tests that show me to be in pretty good health, all things considered. I'm still out here fighting."
