Elizabeth Edwards Spills The Beans On Her Husband’s Affair

In her new memoir, Resilience, out on May 12, Elizabeth Edwards describes how she found out that husband John Edwards had an affair with Rielle Hunter and why she decided to forgive him. Elizabeth, who is terminally ill with cancer, refers to Hunter as a pathetic “parasite groupie who invaded the Edwardses life,” according to the New York Daily News. Hunter initially hit on Edwards by telling him, “You are so hot,” outside of a hotel. When Edwards finally confessed to his indiscretion — after being busted by the National Enquirer — he continued lying, telling Elizabeth that he had only cheated once, when, in fact, he had had a long affair with Hunter. So, why did Elizabeth forgive him? She writes:

“I lie in bed, circles under my eyes, my sparse hair sticking in too many directions, and he looks at me as if I am the most beautiful woman he has ever seen. It matters.”
