Elizabeth Edwards: I will stand by John

And I will too, considering he did wrong by you, EE.



  • Me too ... :)

    Thanks Benny.

  • Perhaps Elizabeth isn't standing by him: Edwards Moves Mistress to NC

    Normally I wouldn't believe a tabloid but they've been right all along with this story. I guess he figures he toast - or actually the burnt crumbs at the bottom of the toaster - so what's he got to lose? The answer, of course, is any love or respect left from Elizabeth, Cate, Emma Claire and Jack not to mention his extended family and friends.

    No one has fallen so far so fast but he's done it to himself. It's sad for the voiceless who needed someone to speak for him but most of all it's tragic for his legitimate family.

  • The National Enquirer has been right because Hunter has been feeding the info to them. Lawrence O'Donnell was on MSNBC saying he used to know Hunter and still has mutual friends who said she was telling them everything before it was public. She made sure it was known to get money.

    Edwards was a fool to get involved with her and is more foolish to continue to provide for her. He could provide for the child without supporting the mother in a lavish lifestyle.

    I understand why Hunter wants to torture Elizabeth Edwards and her children but why is her husband tormenting her when she has stood by him? (It cannot be good for her health.) Most women would have ended the marriage long ago and taken every penny in the process. Mrs. Edwards gave more than 100% trying to save the marriage and in return is being treated so badly. No one would blame her for ending it now. But Mrs. Edwards, don't pack your bags, toss his belongs out! You deserve so much better than you've received.

  • Does Edwards really think setting Hunter up in NC will keep her quiet if she's been the source of all the stories? She may be happy for a short time but sooner or later she'll want more. She'll continue to release photos and arrange for the girl to be "caught" on video to keep the money rolling in.

    My sympathy is with Elizabeth and her three children. But I do feel sorry for that little girl who will know her father denied her and her mother used her for money.

    Life gets messy sometimes but Edwards has made the dumbest decisions at every point in this entire fiasco. Good riddance to John Edwards, Hunter, Young, etc.

  • Elizabeth - it's time for you to file an alienation of affection suit against the SKANK and then divorce John. You need to financially protect Cate, Emma Claire, Jack and yourself from the SKANK. Obviously John has lost his mind as he keeps giving the SKANK fodder for the National Enquirer. The Skank must really have something more than just the paternity issue over John for him to agree to moving her and child into a fancy Wilmington neighborhood or he's lying about his true feeling for the SKANK. Sorry to be so brutal.

  • I just saw that Elizabeth is going to be on Larry King this evening 8/19 debating healthcare with Tommy Thompson.

    Here is the link I saw:

    By Blogger StandupGuy?, at 1:30 PM  

  • STANDUPGUY,when you say "SKANK" please distinguish between the HE-SKANK and SHE-SKANK. Hunter is no more to blame in this story than Edwards. He's a big boy. He knew what he was doing. People need to stop putting him on a pedestal. He fell off a LONG time ago. He is GUILTY of cheating on his wife. He got himself into this mess. No one else did it for him. The only cancer Elizabeth can get rid of for sure is the one she's married to! I hope she shows him the door and takes him for everything's he's worth!

    By Blogger AllyOop, at 2:18 PM  

  • John Edwards had one redeeming quality remaining - Elizabeth. By treating her so terribly, he has lost even that!

    The Washington Post interview with Edwards in June noted:

    "John Edwards says he has few illusions. He knows the picture many Americans hold of him is not a pretty one." - What an understatement!

    "He said he has no plans to make a push to restore his name, along the lines of what former New York governor Eliot Spitzer has embarked on. Reputation 'is not something I'm focused on,' he said." - He just made absolutely sure there is no way his name will ever be restored!

    "But he did not rule out a return to politics. He said it was too early to say what the future held . . . 'Sometimes you just keep your head down and work hard and see what happens,' he said." - Don't worry, it's been ruled out for you no matter what you do now.

    "But in the interview, he said he was no longer fixated on finding lucrative work." - Also not going to happen unless he begins an organization to assist disgraced politicians.

    "'The two things I'm on the planet for now are to take care of the people I love and to take care of people who cannot take care of themselves,' he said." - Guess that only includes him, Hunter and her child not Elizabeth and her children!

  • I'm sorry. I tried to tell you this man was a Pig. He's a whore chasin' hillbilly and she's the whore. Poor, Poor baby. She has no good role models. Cate, Emma Clair and Jack have Elizabeth.

    John, if your girls have relationship problems and trust issues with men, you are the one to blame. Your girls couldn't trust their father. RH's girl has no one to trust.

    Elizabeth, I know you don't need any more advice, but it may be time to cut your loses and take care of your children and yourself. It seems that everytime you manage to come to terms with what this man has done, he hurts you again. This isn't good for you or your children. Don't worry about mistress and her child. This isn't your problem. This is John's mess.

    Both of these people owe you. Go to court and sue her and him. Get the money you need for your kids and for yourself. Especially for your health care.

    The man you love is not there anymore. He'd rather chase a whore.

    John has made himself irrelavent but there is a Rep. Weiner who appears to be doing a good job with health care.

    By Blogger oklahomagirl, at 3:31 PM  

  • How much longer is Edwards going to drag this out and let the tabloids keep disclosing more and more? It's cruel to have this coming out as Elizabeth is planning the grand opening for her furniture store and otherwise trying to get on with her life. Do the right thing for her for once!

    May God see Elizabeth Edwards through this extraordinarily difficult time and bless her with a long life full of joy and happiness with the people she loves who love her, too.

    By Blogger indyvoter, at 3:32 PM  

  • Oh! Don't leave your house. Kick John out. You probably know this being a lawyer.

    One more word Raul Fedlier(how ever you spell it) A good divorce lawyer.

    By Blogger oklahomagirl, at 3:34 PM  

  • Yes, she needs to get a divorce lawyer now. Either Edwards is trying to get her to file for divorce or he's setting her up for the next bombshell he drops that he is filing so he can marry his mistress. (Let's stop pretending she the EX-mistress.) Whichever it is, Elizabeth needs to protect herself and her two young children.

    By Blogger Anonymous, at 4:32 PM  

  • It's been interesting to see the anger from the comments. I'm not angry with John or Elizabeth, but I am annoyed with Frances' mother. She is so self-absorbed. That child and Jack and Emma Claire are the victims here. As one reader pointed out, they can access the internet.

    Time will tell if this move was a publicity stunt or not.

    By Blogger benny06, at 4:41 PM  

  • I don't think anyone is angry with Elizabeth. We just want her to protect herself from a man who is psychologically abusing her with this horrible, horrible woman. He intends to allow this woman to stick her face and that of the baby in Elizabeth's face until the day she dies. He is a horrible, horrible person. The problem is she isn't or doesn't seem able to protect herself from him.

    I've had friends deny their situations until the husband was able to get a lawyer and clean them out. They went off into the sunset with their mistresses and left the wife and kids with nothing. I know EE's a lawyer but she isn't psychologically able to take care of herself.
    Maybe her daughter or a friend will help her soon. Where's Hargrove? She needs you.
    This is going to become a disaster for her. The stress on her is going to shorten her life. Too bad these two can't be charged for this.

    The only hope is that Karma gets these two horrible, horrible people. John for betraying his family and RH for stealing what doesn't belong to her.

    PS RH is around 45 she looks 55 wait until she gets 10 more years on her and she will look like the hag she is.

    By Blogger oklahomagirl, at 5:13 PM  

  • I'd add Elizabeth Edwards as a victim of both her husband and his mistress.

    If John Edwards is moving them close to his home on the coast, he's making a conscious decision to do something that will only cause harm to his wife and their three children. He could easily have provided for the illegitimate daughter without moving her to NC. There is no way Elizabeth stayed with him to go through this hell.

    As for the mistress, she has what she wants in an expensive home, an unending supply of money and John Edwards. She's immoral so she probably feels she "wins" but her daughter another of her victims.

    By Blogger Anonymous, at 5:18 PM  

  • Aside from the incredible personal tragedy in the situation, another loss is the voice needed more desperately now than ever:

    John Edwards could have been an Al Gore type leader on poverty but sadly that isn't possible and no one else is filling the void.

    By Blogger indyvoter, at 5:40 PM  

  • I suspect the reason why Elizabeth packed her suitcase is she now realizes John is in love with Hunter. He's using the excuse of helping with raising Frances in order to continue his relationship with Hunter. Otherwise, she could live elsewhere and not in Wilmington, NC. Doesn't seem like much remorse by John if you ask me. He should asked Elizabeth how she'd feel if Hunter and Frances were to move to North Carolina instead he told her what he was going to do. Again, he shows no respect for Elizabeth or their children by his actions. I will pray for Elizabeth to make the best decision for herself and the children.

    By Blogger StandupGuy?, at 5:49 PM  

  • For those of you who didn't watch Elizabeth on Larry King this evening, Elizabeth look terrific and was spot on with public option. At the end, Larry asked how Elizabeth and the family is doing? Elizabeth's replied seemed forced, saying she's getting the kid's ready for a new school year. Larry asked about her about the paternity again and Elizabeth seemed to stumble a bit. I know this is all terribly hard on her and the kids - John quit being such a DICK. Why doesn't he tell Hunter to quit selling stories to NE since he's going to provide child support? Is John Edwards really that stupid??

    By Blogger StandupGuy?, at 6:40 PM  

  • "Is John Edwards really that stupid??" Rhetorical question, right?

    I felt bad for Elizabeth Edwards when she had to answer the personal questions. She was constrained by the situation both now and each time she defended her husband in the past, he later made a fool of her. Sadly, the paternity resolution can never be quiet as she mentioned because of the multitude of lies. What could she say unless she wanted to drop a bombshell of her own? (Wouldn't it serve John right to hear on live TV his wife is filing for divorce and will take him for everything she can? Ha!)

    By Blogger Anonymous, at 6:49 PM  

  • He apparently just wants to continue the "booty" calls. You know like the ones he made to Andrew Young's house when this horrible woman was pregnant.

    Maybe they want more kids and she isn't getting any younger. This is starting to all look planned. It's just that Elizabeth isn't cooperating and getting out of the picture. She did look good tonight.

    Why can't someone in her family lock her in the basement and keep her away for other women's families. Talk about the "wicked stepmother". Since she has no morals and neither does he, they don't have a lot to offer a child or children.

    John's parents must be so proud. I'd like to be a fly on the wall when his mom and dad have to meet her.

    By Blogger oklahomagirl, at 7:11 PM  

  • JRE's parents have probably already meet Hunter when she was working for the campaign (right before she was fired)? Any this whole ugly affair makes me sick - Why does Elizabeth stay though? I really find it hard to understand! She's only fooling herself if she thinks JRE and Hunter won't be having "booty" calls. Hunter probably would get pregnant again just to suck more money out of JRE and rub it in Elizabeth's face.

    By Blogger StandupGuy?, at 7:48 PM  

  • "The National Enquirer has been right because Hunter has been feeding the info to them. Lawrence O'Donnell was on MSNBC saying he used to know Hunter and still has mutual friends who said she was telling them everything before it was public. She made sure it was known to get money."

    Than why are people believing her? It could be very well knowing that Hunter wants Edwards to herself, she's giving inflammatory information just to get the reaction she's looking for.

    By Blogger waiting for hope, at 9:00 PM  

  • Possibly Hunter is doing as "waiting for hope" mentions "It could be very well knowing that Hunter wants Edwards to herself, she's giving inflammatory information just to get the reaction she's looking for."
    but why doesn't JRE tell Hunter to knock off the stories in the NE? All long Hunter has made it known she wants JRE, having her friends and sisters go on TV and say the affair never ended. Elizabeth said when she was on her book tour, that if JRE is the father it was not going to change her marriage to JRE. I suppose the NE story can be partially true that Hunter and Frances are moving to NC but to make the story more sensational "made up" the part about Elizabeth packing her suitcase to make it look like Hunter has won in the end - getting JRE into their (Hunter and Frances) lives and that Elizabeth not dealing with the situation?

    By Blogger StandupGuy?, at 11:39 PM  

  • The problem with discounting the stories is the National Enquirer has pretty much been right all along. (And it's sad Edwards has made them a legitimate news source.) Granted they do like to sensationalize as this new story does by saying the mistress is moving to Edwards' neighborhood when in fact she's moving close to their beach house across the state not their home in Chapel Hill. (But Edwards previously moved her to Chapel Hill early in the cover up so been there, done that.)

    Who wins? Hunter thinks she will by getting Edwards but doesn't she realize men like this don't cheat once and then stop. As OKgirl pointed out, Hunter doesn't wear her age well since all the years of cocaine have taken a toll. As soon as Edwards finds someone better, he'll do the same to her.

    Aside from the pain Elizabeth Edwards has endured, the ultimate losers are the children. Even though Cate is an adult, this must be terribly difficult for her. I can't imagine what it's like for Emma Claire and Jack living in a home with so much discord. (Elizabeth Edwards said in one of her interviews they hear their parents fighting.) There is no way they wouldn't be impacted by it. Plus, they see their father behave so horribly with no repercussions. It cannot be healthy for them in the long run.

    The baby will be followed constantly by the tabloids trying to get a picture of her with daddy or with her mommy and daddy. They will be camped outside her house trying to catch daddy showing up for booty calls. Her life was ruined before it even began. Her mother could have prevented all this pain for her but instead chose to feed it by releasing photos, videos, info. So sad!

  • His parents may have met her but they didn't know their wonderful son was committing adultery with her.

    How does a woman as old as she is, with her history or sexually transmitted diseases (a la "Bright Lights City Lights book, she never denied was about her) and as worn out as she has to be from all those men, even get pregnant?

    JE may get what he wants, but once he gets it he will lose his other kids and his life will be hell. How many times did you see the Duke of Windsor smile in his media pictures after he got what he wanted.

    EE, again don't leave your house or your kids with this man. The man you married and loved has gone to the dark side and probably can't be saved. Make sure your kids don't have to deal with a slut for a stepmother. She has no way of teaching kids anything that will help them be strong independent people. She lives off of others and steals what she wants. SHE IS A MOOCHER and always will be. If she marries JE she'll probably leave him after a few years and collect what money he has left.

    The fact that your husband won't protect you from her is all you need to know about him.

  • Anyone who blames Hunter for this situation is admitting John Edwards is a spinelss fool. I'm not sticking up for the hussy, but he could have said NO. It was John Edwards' call to make. Do wrong or do right. If it wasn't Rielle Hunter, it would've been someone else. It was only a matter of time. John Edwards is also a whore in this scenario.

    By Blogger AllyOop, at 7:28 AM  

  • Well, I did call him a whore chasing hillbilly. Does that count?

    The idea he won't take up for Elizabeth and keeps making this worse, makes him a hugh Pig.

    Too bad he couldn't think with his big head. Too bad he didn't have any taste in women in his old age. If he did he would have clug to his wife and family like the Bible says.

    By Blogger oklahomagirl, at 8:24 AM  

  • One thing just came to mind while reading all the comments here. If there is any truth to the NE story about Hunter moving to Wilmington, JRE must be pretty confident there is not going to be an indictment against him from the grand jury. Otherwise, Hunter is being premature in selling her story to NE as I wouldn't think he would move her if there's any chance he might be found guilty of breaking election laws. I would think once the grand jury concludes it's findings, they will announce if there will be charges brought against JRE or not. Am I right?

    By Blogger StandupGuy?, at 9:22 AM  

  • I should added breaking election laws ie. doing time in a federal prison

    By Blogger StandupGuy?, at 9:26 AM  

  • Keep in mind that it isn't all that difficult to get a grand jury to return an indictment. They only hear one side of the story since the accused doesn't get to present anything. It won't help Edwards that Hunter and Young are cooperating witnesses providing testimony against him.

    The indictment doesn't mean the prosecutor will win the case but in this situation Young especially could be setting Edwards up to protect himself and because he's angry the money to him dried up with Baron's death.

    Grand jury proceedings are secret so the prosecutor doesn't have to announce if they don't return an indictment but Edwards' attorney may be able to speak out. This grand jury meets the first Wednesday and Thursday of the month and there was speculation Young and Hunter would likely be the final witnesses so something could happen soon regardless of which way it goes.

    By Blogger Anonymous, at 3:25 PM  

  • Since I'm one of those who followed the Edwards campaign - I've always wanted what's best for them as a family. I read this comment at another site and maybe these words are true?

    "After reading all the hate entries concerning John Edwards, I feel like I could be the only one actually pulling for this family and their kids? Imagine if Elizabeth were gone? John would be required to move on and unite his splintered and emotionally shatter family forward. He could do it in a heartbeat. He selected a potential replacement for his other kids already linked by an innocent little child. All the hate and trumoil facing them comes from Elizabeth's heart. She is dying and there is nothing we can do about it. That's the reality of cancer. Can she love John unconditionally and let him do what he thinks is best for their family? Right now we are viewing this tragedy from the eyes of the one passing, not from the eyes of those required to pick up the peices when she's gone. The only one making John miserable right now is Elizabeth. Why hurt the family? They seem to be coping with an ugly reality. I'll admit John is no angel for not holding her hand until death, but isn't this why we respect those who can deal with death so much more? This tragedy is not for public consumption. This is a blended family that Elizabeth must learn to love if she loves them. Can't undo it."

    This was posted by a man whose views are different than mine. I hope and pray Elizabeth can find acceptance in John's decision concerning their children. Ultimately, John's going be with whomever he chooses and it's unfortunate these events happened to Elizabeth the way they have. I still pray for her and her children to help them through a horrible situation.

  • StandupGuy. This would be in a perfect world. This relationship has done untold harm to the kids of JE and EE. Don't you think these kids haven't seen what pain and stress this has caused their dying mother. This should have been a time of support and unconditional love for her and instead JE and RH made her life hell. This woman took away the one this she wanted from her husband and that was for him to be faithful. My bet is, that like me, EE doesn't suffer in silence and these kids have had an earful of angery arguments. They know what JE's relationship has cost their mother and they know whose fault it is.

    This isn't a blended family. RH and her child are outside this family and have caused much pain. The child is a symbol of betrayal of EE and her children. It would take a lifetime to come to terms with this for any women. EE stated on Larry King that her numbers don't look good. I don't really know what that means, but I don't think she has time to come to terms with this. She made a statement, at one time, that she didn't believe JE intended to make a family with this women. I think that is exactly what they did. Two cold hearted calculating horrible people who care for no one but themselves. The consequences for these children are immeasurable. The baby will always know she was denied, and the other children will have to deal with the pain this woman caused their mother in her dying days. It doesn't help that RH feeds the media stories to help break up the family and takes evey opportunity to stick that child in EE face. It's a testimony to JE's lack of manhood that he can't stop this. This woman uses her baby for money. She is a bad mother and would be a worse stepmother.

    JE and his extra lay are horrible people by any standard and will pay for their selfishness for years. Unfortunately, it will probably be due to the behavior of the kids. These last 3 will have a hard time not doubt. Cate always has the option to move away and stay away. Don't expect happy family gatherings anytime soon.

    Did you see Anthony Weiner on Morning Joe. JE has been replaced. He is not relavent nor do people want to see him anymore. The news media needs to quit covering him and mistress. No one cares and they aren't worth the time.

    By Blogger oklahomagirl, at 7:21 AM  

  • Obviously none of us know what is in the future for any of the parties involved but from a practical standpoint, it doesn't seem possible any of them will live happily ever after.

    Elizabeth's children know the harm their father and his mistress brought to their mother and by extension to them. There is no way they could ever look at Hunter and see her as anything but the pathetic person she is. (As Elizabeth has pointed out, they have computers so they have access to information, including Hunter's long sordid history pre-Edwards, too.)

    The illegitimate baby will someday have access to the fact her father denied her as well as the horrible actions of her mother. All of that will be painful enough for her but if they try to blend a family, how much more painful will it be to have half-siblings in her life with disdain for her mother.

    Edwards needs to come to terms with the fact he cannot have one family. He either needs to give up any relationship with Hunter (someone else can pick up the girl for visitation) or he needs to give up his two older children to Cate to raise if he has to be with Hunter. Whatever he is going to do, he should stop hurting Elizabeth and their three children NOW.

    By Blogger Anonymous, at 8:02 AM  

  • Oklahomagirl & Anonymous - I appreciate your sincere comments. I know we all hope and pray that EE and her children not only survive this horrible ordeal JE has dealt them but come out a stronger family without JE.

    By Blogger StandupGuy?, at 10:40 AM  

  • JE was delusional about carring on this affair and getting this woman pregnant while running for president. There is no reason to believe he isn't carring this delusion over to his future with this woman, inspite of the pain it will cause his other children. He needs a really good psychartist to help him come to terms with losing his son, his wife, and the relationship with this woman before he destroys his kids. He can be a father to the baby and leave the woman out of it. He needs help if it is true he will try to bring this woman in to EE's home in the future.

    When RH's family tells people how she feels about JE, they never mention his wife and family. RH never mentions the fact he has other children. She only talks about the 3 of them. She may need the same psychiatrist.

  • This posted on WRAL:

    I think EE answered the press better today about the paternity issue.

    I read the latest JE/RH NE article at the grocery store today. It's says EE started to pack but asked JE to leave the house instead and that she told him she's having nothing to do with RH and Frances that its his problem. It also said RH was in Wilmington the second week of August and has already picked out a house with a big yard for Frances to play in and that she is happy that JE is going to start bonding with Frances (wink wink!!)
    What a slap on EE's face - EE works for more than 30 years and the mistress gets a big house just because she got JE's kid. And the NE said JE is still lying to EE that he still in direct contact with RH.

    By Blogger StandupGuy?, at 4:45 PM  

  • Good for EE. He's just going to be making "booty calls" anyway.

    Maybe if EE crushed his "nads" he wouldn't be making anymore booty calls or babies with this horrible, horrible woman.

    By Blogger oklahomagirl, at 5:36 PM  

  • I forgot. I guess RH will never work for anything in her life. Just a thieve and moocher. She'll raise her kid that way to. Maybe that will be JE's Karma.

    By Blogger oklahomagirl, at 5:38 PM  

  • Oh one other tidbit I forgot from the NE article - the source said that EE would have taken the two younger kids and left JE if she wasn't sick.

    I would hope JE has had himself "fixed" since this happened!!

    By Blogger StandupGuy?, at 5:51 PM  

  • One article on the store opening included the following:
    John Edwards would only discuss the store, but when asked what his future held he said he was, "doing the things I need to do with my family, helping Elizabeth, support what she's doing here."

    Those words are disgusting if he's treating her and by extension her children so horribly. He should be ashamed!

    I don't doubt she would have left him if she weren't ill since she obviously puts her children first; however, there must come a point where staying together is worse for the children. With his overinflated ego, perhaps knowing she's only with him due to the situation is part of why he's behaving so deplorably. I'm not sure "delusional" adequately covers it but it certainly seems OKgirl is right that he needs serious psychiatric care for the sake of his children if nothing else.

    By Blogger Anonymous, at 6:41 AM  

  • I don't think JE is delusional. I think the JE & RH probably did plan the kid to force EE to divorce him. I think he figures well she still stays no matter what I do to her, so I'll just keep doing what I want. He's that big of a PIG. I wonder why Jack wasn't at the grand opening yesterday? Jack was there when Oprah arrived at their house but not in the photographs? Seems strange to me?

    By Blogger StandupGuy?, at 7:01 AM  

  • I was in the grocery store and there was a picture of the house RH is getting on the front page of the Enquirer. (If it's true) This house is hugh. Why does she need this expensive a house? 7-8 thousand sq. ft. 2 story. There should be away to sue her and him for theft of marrital assests. Granted he will need to pay child support and unfortunately part of that money is EE's and her kids. But this is like being sued. No matter which one did it the other has to loose money too. But the money he is paying her, at least 75%of it belongs to EE and her kids. Being a wife doesn't mean you have to provide an 8,000 sq ft house to the slut mistress or pay her expenses. Your stuck with the kid, but not the mistress.

    John shouldn't be able to spend their money on his Booty calls. EE needs to find a lawyer, a really nasty lawyer who will sue both of these people for the damage they have done to her and her kids. Alienation of affection, which is obvious by now, and divorce.

    This man chose to use a whore to make the end of her life a living hell. All this should be pretty easy to prove. Apparently, JE doesn't think EE will challenge him due to the kids, but that is the very reason I would challenge him.

    Having said all of what I've said, none of this is my decision to make. John has treated her badly and she doesn't deserve it.

    Don't worry he'll get his. But the pain he has caused his family, the ones he should have protected from RH, is HUGH.

    By Blogger oklahomagirl, at 10:31 AM  

  • Actually, I read on some other site the house on the front of the Equirer is the Edwardses beach home which the NE referred to it as "his" and not "theirs" meaning JE & EE - WTF! But still make no mistake RH is getting a big house to live in.
    I wish EE's closest friends would advise her to leave JE the lying sack of crap. Who knows maybe JE told her that if she tried to divorce him, he'd drag it out for years. EE just seems to willing to accept her sad situation with JE ruling the roost. It breaks my heart that JE's is treating EE this way. He is a very bad example to Jack as he's going to think this is how husband's treat their spouse.

  • It might as well be his house because I bet Elizabeth and her kids won't spend a minute there once Hunter is within a 100 mile radius. Elizabeth should make him pay her for her half. Hopefully she's already set up separate accounts to protect half of what they had and all of what she earns going forward for her children.

    It's possible Edwards is still trying to control the situation with Hunter by placating her with a house in Wilmington promising he'll be there often. (If so, he's delusional in that he never had control of this mess.) Eventually, she'll get tired of occasional visits and want him there all the time.

    Sounds like she went house hunting immediately after providing testimony to the grand jury against Edwards. What a fool he is for having any part of it! He may not be paying as someone else has likely been supporting her since Fred Baron died but he could put a stop to it. If nothing else, he could sell the beach house and leave her in Wilmington alone.

    I can't imagine a party-girl coke-head will be too happy in Wilmington. She can't have many friends there and I doubt the neighbors will welcome her when the tabloids invade the area to get shots of the little girl in her big yard. Then Hunter will demand more and more. Edwards is never going to be able to stop her but he obviously doesn't realize it.

    He is a terrible role model for all his children and a disgrace to his extended family.

  • I saw this at Huffington Post - Lee Stranahan sure has it in for EE - I've seen his rants at Huffington Post last summer and he seems to be a cheerleader for Hunter. He believes that the "child" of Hunter and Edwards was no "accident".

  • It sounds like this guy is holding a grudge because he was kicked off another site. Rather than accept responsibility for his own actions, he's using Huffington Post as part of a personal - and in my opinion ridiculous - agenda. He seems to try to make himself seem more important than he is and fabricate things or at least he can't seem to back up his assertions. (How insane to think Edwards wanted this psycho running around with a kid of his when he was still campaigning for the nomination! Maybe she planned it to get money but that's a different story.) It's too bad they permit their site to be used this way when so much of the other content is valuable.
