Cate Edwards speaks! This week’s People magazine will feature an interview with Elizabeth Edwards and her 28-year-old daughter, who will open up publicly for the first time about her dad, John Edwards, and her mother’s cancer. Cate has also penned a essay for People about her mom. “There are the things she taught without words [like] how to continue to live your life on your own terms when it somehow becomes savaged by people you never invited into it,” Cate wrote. The mother/daughter duo are promoting the paperback release of Resilience, Elizabeth’s bestselling memoir.
Cate, 28, is a graduate of Princeton and Harvard, a former editorial assistant for Vanity Fair and now clerks for a federal judge in Washington, D.C. Cate has every reason to play the Lindsay Lohan card — I mean, what would you do if your dad cheated with a professional wackadoodle like Rielle Hunter? — but the girl is nothing but a class act.
