John Edwards And Rielle Hunter Might Be Engaged

John Edwards proposed to his mistress/mother of his lovechild Rielle Hunter three weeks after his estranged wife, Elizabeth, died from cancer, The National Enquirer has claimed. Granted, it’s the Enquirer, but the supermarket tabloid was originally right about him diddling former presidential campaign videographer, so they may know a thing or two. A source claims John proposed to Rielle during a “festive holiday getaway” when he introduced her to his children and that Rielle coldly told the Edwards kids — Cate, Emma Claire and John — to “call me mommy.” The couple already have a young daughter, Frances Quinn, who was the product of their affair (though John long denied he was her father).

If the couple does marry, it might make a prediction in a dishy tell-all book by John’s former aide, Andrew Young, true: John had allegedly promised Rielle they would marry after his sick wife died in a rooftop ceremony in New York City with Dave Matthews Band playing. Keep reading »

Elizabeth Edwards Leaves Cheating Ex John Edwards Out Of Her Will

Not that John Edwards deserved anything after cheating on his cancer-stricken wife and fathering a child with crazy lady Rielle Hunter, but color me surprised that Elizabeth Edwards, who died in December, has left her estranged hubby out of the will. Cate Edwards, the couple’s 28-year-old daughter, was made executor of the will, which leaves everything to her and her two younger siblings, Emma Claire and John. The will, dated just six days before her death, reads: “All of my furniture, furnishings, household goods, jewelry, china, silverware and personal effects and any automobiles … to be divided among them … ”

Elizabeth passed away after a long battle with cancer; after John’s tawdry affair with his presidential campaign videographer burst onto the pages of The National Enquirer, the couple had separated but not yet divorced. Personally, I think leaving John out of the will was a last little “f**k you” to him. Instead of sentimental artifacts of their marriage, he just gets stuck with parenthood with Rielle Hunter!

  • The “Brenda Starr” comic strip will cease to run after January 2, the Tribune Media Company has announced. “Brenda Starr” has been a redheaded, world-traveling reporter for over 70 years. While she once appeared in over 250 newspapers, she lately only appeared in three dozen. Now she’ll go with the “Cathy” cartoon to that great lady cartoon strip in the sky. [The Wrap]
  • Ultrasounds may not be needed before taking the “abortion pill,” mifepristone, particularly because the extra cost added on by having a sonogram can make ending a pregnancy financially out of reach for some people, according to a new study. Ultrasounds usually cost $350 to $650 and are typically used to find how far along a pregnancy is; however, they are not necessarily medically necessary to safely use mifepristone, said Gynuity Health Projects in New York City.

The 10 Juiciest Parts Of Cate And Elizabeth Edwards’ People Magazine Interview

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 »
