Elizabeth Edwards is releasing her bestselling memoir Resilience in paperback and that means it’s time for a tell-all interview with People magazine. This time around, her eldest daughter, Cate Edwards, 28, joined her. Mother and daughter chatted with People about John Edwards‘ philandering, the divorce, his lovechild Quinn, and how Elizabeth is staying strong throughout chemo treatments for her stage-4 cancer.
Elizabeth’s money quote about the Rielle Hunter paternity test debacle is boring — “John’s conduct through this whole thing was terrible” — and they don’t touch the sex tape with a 10-foot pole. But there’s still some juicy gossip to sift through, after the jump. Keep reading »
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.

“If somebody’s gonna smoke a joint in their house and not do anybody else any harm, then perhaps there are other things our cops should be looking at to engage in and try to clean up some of the other problems that we have in society. Relatively speaking, it is a minimal problem.”
—Sarah Palin, appearing on the Fox Business Network. While she’s against legalizing marijuana, she also isn’t for busting folks for minor possession. Why am I now picturing her and Todd sharing a doobie at the end of the day? [Newser] Keep reading »
Everyone is wondering what the heck is up with Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston. This week, Us Weekly quoted a source as saying, “They spend more time together than most people think. … Levi even stays overnight. I even think they are back together.” Then the National Enquirer upped the ante, saying that Levi’s truck has been parked at Bristol’s for a while now. Neither source is so reputable, but these tabs do have a way of being right on occasion.
So, Bristol appeared on “Good Morning America” today and was of course asked about Levi. Here’s what she had to say… Keep reading »
Last night, Barack Obama gave a 17-minute speech from the Oval Office about the horrific BP oil spill. It seems he is using this tragedy to teach us gas-guzzling Americans a lesson about clean energy, without actually saying exactly what the government plans to do. I know presidential speeches are not always the most riveting, so we don’t blame you if you didn’t watch it. However, this was a pretty important address. So take a look at our cheat sheet, after the jump. Keep reading »
Remember when Al and Tipper Gore split up a week and a half ago, and we brainstormed a list of who Al should date next? Numero three on said list was one Laurie David (far right), the former wife of Larry David. (The two divorced in 2007, amidst rumors that Laurie had an affair with the caretaker of their summer home.) Laurie is a high-powered global warming activist who produced Al’s “An Inconvenient Truth,” and since they’re both newly single, brown-haired, and all about the environment, we thought they’d be sooooo cute together.
Turns out, they have been cute together. For the past two years. Keep reading »
Don’t you wish you could place bets on which political couples are going to break up first? Well, now you can! I don’t really know anyone who gambles, but I feel like those people are probably not the same people who care about celebrity divorces. [Wrong! I care about both! -- Editor Amelia] But the website YouWager.com lets you put down your hard-earned cash in hopes that people like Sarah Palin and her husband whatshisface or Bill and Hilary Clinton will get divorced. And if you were already betting on Al and Tipper Gore, you might have walked away with a couple hundred bucks! The most interesting thing about the bets is that the less likely the couple is to get divorced, the more money you stand to win, and the folks at YouWager.com apparently think that George and Barbara Bush are $2,000 more likely to stay together than Michelle and Barack Obama … whom you’d only get $3,000 for your $100 bet if their marriage dissolved. This gives me a similarly icky feeling as those Ashley Madison adultery commercials. Keep reading »
