Cheri Young On John Edwards’ Sex Video: “He Knew He Was Being Taped”


Yesterday on “Oprah,” Andrew and Cheri Young continued their “Ratting Out John Edwards” book tour of doom, discussing everything from why they agreed to lie for the former-Senator/Presidential candidate, how Edwards has changed since 2004, and, of course, that infamous sex tape. In the clip above, Cheri seems super, well, psyched to give away some details, but stops short of saying anything really juicy — aside from the fact that Rielle was holding the camera in the vid, and Edwards knew he was being taped. Call me nuts, but my dirty, nosey mind wants more specifics on those sex acts. But I’m a perv. Keep reading »

Edwards’ Aide Talks About Giving His Life To The Politician

Andrew Young, the former John Edwards aide who claims in his book, The Politician, that he lied for the former presidential candidate, went on “Good Morning America” today with his wife, Cheri. The couple talked about how they always put John and Elizabeth Edwards first, saying they housed Rielle Hunter for eight months and even brought her along on family vacations. They even agreed to say Rielle’s baby was Andrew’s. Apparently, John told them he was going to come clean after Elizabeth died, because he didn’t want her to find out about the scandal.

Want To Vote On Sleaziest Politician Sex Tape Scandal?

John Edwards should have known better than to let his videographer/lovah bring her camera into the bedroom. Andrew Young—the former Edwards’ staffer who originally took the fall for having the affair with Hunter—described finding the tape in Rielle Hunter’s trash in his book and he’ll be appearing on “Nightline” and “20/20″ tonight to describe exactly what was on it. Hunter is in court as we speak, trying to get a restraining order for the tape to be kept under wraps. If she doesn’t, who knows what could happen? Let’s just say that more than a few people would be interested in watching.

While politicians make sex tapes with far less frequency than Hollywood folk or rock stars (or maybe they’re just better at keeping them a secret?), Edwards is hardly the first to find himself in this situation. After the jump, a history of politicians and their naughty tapes. Keep reading »

The John Edwards/Rielle Hunter Sex Tape Appears To Be Totes Legit

Ruh-roh. Rielle Hunter has gone to court to suppress “a personal video recording that depicted matters of a very private and personal nature.” The alleged video recording is in the possession of Andrew and Cheri Young. Mr. Young was Edwards’ long-time assistant, and he gave an interview with ABC News describing what was on the tape he found in Edwards’ trash can. Though he never saw her face in the video, he described the woman as “visibly pregnant” and “wearing a bracelet” and a “thumb ring” resembling those often worn by Rielle Hunter. Thumb ring? Really? Eww. [ABC News] Keep reading »

Elizabeth Edwards Finally Kicks John To The Curb

Turns out that People got it right this week—Elizabeth Edwards has, in fact, reached her breaking point and is ditching her philandering hubby of 32 years. Yesterday, a spokesperson for Elizabeth confirmed that she is “moving on with her life after a excruciatingly painful period.” John has confirmed the story, too. He says, “It is an extraordinarily sad moment, but I love my children more than anything and still care deeply about Elizabeth.” Elizabeth is staying in the couple’s house, while John is shuffling between their beach home and an annex to the family house they refer to as “the barn.” She’s supposedly had divorce papers drawn up for more than a year, but just recently decided to move forward with the process. According to some reports, the final straw for Elizabeth was meeting John’s love child, Quinn, who is now 2 years old. Others say that John made the decision. A friend told the magazine, “John feels like, ‘I can’t live with you checking my cell phone, asking who I was with, where I went. That’s not how I want to live the rest of my life.’ I think they realized she still doesn’t trust him.” Regardless of how or why the decision was made, it certainly sounds like a good one.
