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.

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.

It’s never too early for baby’s first debt reduction program, right? This rubbery credit card teether by Heelarious, the folks who sell high-heels for babies, carries the name “Ima Spender.” Thankfully anyone who drools on this toy is too young to read.
