All The Deets You Never Wanted On John “Love Lips” Edwards And Rielle Hunter

And you thought you’d heard all the dirty details after John Edwards finally confessed that he is Rielle Hunter’s baby daddy. Au contraire! The Politician, the book by Andrew Young—who you know as the Edwards’ campaign staffer who initially said he was the one doing the horizontal polka with Hunter, before it came out that Edwards was the culprit—comes out next week. NY Daily News has gotten its hands on a copy, and there are some serious zingers in there. For example …

Rosie O’Donnell To Play Elizabeth Edwards?

I grew up in a liberal town in the very un-liberal state of North Carolina. In 1998, when John Edwards busted on the scene and took down Republican stalwart Lauch Faircloth, Edwards instantly became a local hero. For years, I thought he and his wife Elizabeth were the bee’s knees—a loving couple who’d had hard times (the death of a child, her cancer battle) but were still dedicating their lives to making the country a better place. Of course, after the revelation of John Edwards’ affair and subsequent love child, my impression of the couple shifted drastically. But a new book, Game Change, by journalists John Heilemann and Mark Halperin—which delves not only into the Edwards’ lives but all the major political figures involved in the 2008 election from Obama to Palin—has completely squashed any teenage idolization I had left for the Edwards.

John Edwards Admits To Having A Love Child

In a twist that we sort of saw coming but still can’t believe, John Edwards has admitted to fathering mistress Rielle Hunter‘s 22-month-old daughter, Quinn. Though he lied about being the child’s father throughout his presidential campaign and beyond, Edwards seems to have realized that he couldn’t fake a paternity test. Apparently he’s been paying child support for the last year, and Elizabeth has known about this for about as long. Oh what a tangled web you’ve woven, Mr. Edwards. [Today] Keep reading »

Guy Pretends To Be Model Online, Dudes Drool And Send Money

Ah, the interwebs and its wealth of possibilities for meeting that special someone. Many users of the site SeekingMillionaire.com thought they were flirting with Guess model Bree Condon (left) — but in reality, they were talking to a 24-year-old dude by the name of Justin Brown. For two years, Brown maintained a profile on the site and swindled rich guys into sending him gifts, by sharing nudey photos he created using his Photoshop skills. He never met one of these millionaires in person, obviously, but he did have long phone chats with them. “I’d been talking to this person for three months,” said John Carbona, a private investigator who was reeled in by Brown’s ruse but eventually realized that something was fishy. “I’m telling you this guy has either had his gonads removed or he is talking through a voice synthesizer.” Carbona called the cops, who tracked down Brown and caught him with an iPhone and puppy purchased by one of the millionaire suitors. Others gave up heftier gifts—a Miami Beach doc evidently spent more than $15K on the fake Bree. Oopsies? [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Tiger Beat: Has Tiger Woods Checked Into Sex Rehab?

Ever since the golf balls hit the fan, Tiger Woods has been missing in action. No one has been able to confirm the dude’s location or been able to snap a photo of him. Conflicting reports have placed him in New York, Miami, on his yacht, in Africa, and in the Bahamas. But People believes that he is actually in Wickenburg, Arizona. A source tells them that Tiger is at The Meadows clinic, which specializes in rehab for drugs, alcohol, gambling and sex—yes, he’d be there for the latter. Some folks in the town claim to have seen Tiger fly in by helicopter before Christmas. But this source says he arrived closer to New Year’s and is in a four-to-five week program. “He should be out by Valentine’s Day or thereabouts,” the source claims. Meanwhile, the people of Wickenburg are happy to have Tiger in their midst. A local pizza parlor even has a sign in the window that reads, “Hey, Tiger, we deliver.” Aww. [People] Keep reading »

Jamie Jungers Joins Mistresses Anonymous

It always touches my heart when people support important, meaningful causes. So let’s all give a little golf clap for Jamie Jungers, one of Tiger Woods‘ bedmates, who is getting involved with Mistresses Anonymous, a support group for ladies getting down with married men. The group is run by Sarah Symonds, who alleges that she did the no pants dance with chef Gordon Ramsay for seven years. On the group’s website, she writes, “I have been hearing from too many of you who have been ‘dumped’ when your MM’s [married man's] wife found out about you (or when you told his wife about the affair yourself, as I did) and are breaking your hearts. Well, he is not worth it—and this is why I tell you NEVER fall in love with your married man.” Jamie obviously has a lot to say on this topic, and Symons thinks the two will team up on a project. But why stop there when the balance of the world is in your hands? “Ideally what I’d like to do is a TV special with all of Tiger’s mistresses, where they could discuss the downside to being ‘the other woman,’” Symonds said. “And whether he was good in bed.” Right, because that last part will certainly further the cause.
