It is a mistake to begin with the premise the ex-mistress (and who wants to be forever known as a famous man's mistress anyway?) had or has any ideals, values or morals. The GQ article was revealing, and not just the repulsive photographs, of her true character in her own words. Consider the fact she says truth is so important to her but lies about:- claiming she had no power when she would threaten to go public whenever she didn't get her way- her version of their first meeting contradicts that by the aide (not Young) present who has no reason to lie- saying she called Edwards at the hotel that first night and didn't leave a message so he used caller ID or *69 to call her back but the hotel has confirmed neither service is offered to guests- giving false dates, such as a 2/25 call from Davenport, IA but Edwards wasn't there on that date- saying Elizabeth wanted to renew her wedding vows when Edwards has said he asked Elizabeth to do so- stating didn't think she could get pregnant but reports are she underwent fertility treatments- claiming Edwards called her on the phone while in recovery after an emergency c-section and they spoke all night so he went through the whole process with her despite the fact Young says Edwards refused to call when she went into labor and recovery is after surgery so he couldn't have gone through the whole process with her anyway- saying it's "shocking" when news breaks about John and Elizabeth separating but in the Q&A, she discusses how quickly they moved (past tense) forward once the separation occurredShe plays dumb when she thinks it suits her or she gets so caught up in her own web of lies that she can't find a way out like when she claims she didn't know where the money was coming from or why. She talks about when her daughter decided to appear as if sex had nothing to do with her conception. In truth, she is very calculating to try to spin herself into someone with some redeeming values such as when she claims to have compassion for Elizabeth but actually has done and continues to do everything in her power to hurt her and by extension her three children. (Certainly the interview was intended to hurt Elizabeth but she seems to have moved on quickly so she miscalculated here just as with the photos.) Likewise she says she wouldn't want to emasculate Edwards because she loves him and would never do anything to hurt him but the interview itself obviously hurt him and his other children, which must cause him some pain. Throughout the article, everything is about her without regard for anyone else. Her vanity is beyond belief and she wants to be seen as some sort of fashionista instead of a 46 year old woman trying to dress like a 22 year old. She repeatedly rambles on about her size 2 jeans and designer clothes. She is outraged her attire at the time they met was described wrong - as if that's relevant to anything. Perhaps that vanity (and trying to hurt Elizabeth) explains the disgusting photos in which she uses her own child as a prop like a stuffed animal.Which brings into question her parenting skills. The television is constantly on Nick Jr. for her daughter. She says the two year old is just beginning to talk, which seems very late and should be cause for concern. The girl needed extensive dental surgery before the age of 2. In the end, the article portrays her as nothing is her fault. She takes no responsibility for her actions and has no remorse for anything she has done. It's her cheating parents' fault she was involved with a married man. It's the men's magazine's fault for using risque photos she willingly posed for knowing the type of photos that appear in the magazine; yet, somehow she thought they would only use one of the revealing photos. (So one is okay but three is not?) She was "forced" to take money, a BMW, etc. because she certainly didn't want it but couldn't say no?

In the end, maybe she is just delusional when she claims Edwards doesn't lie to her and they have an ongoing relationship despite the fact people around him say he never sees her, only speaks to her on the phone about their daughter and has stated he'll never marry her. Or maybe she is the cold, calculating witch (with a B) out to take everything she can from others. Ultimately she deserving of the scorn she is getting and the backlash over the photos. (And the video of the photo shoot proves she was having the time of her life.)At the end of the day, she, Young and John Edwards are all incapable of telling the truth. With any luck, they'll all disappear for good and the world will be a better place for it. I only hope Elizabeth's voice isn't silenced so she can continue to work on the causes that matter to her. And I hope she has a long, happy life with her children, family and friends.
Well said! All of the mistresses of Tiger Woods, Jesse James, etc. coming out of the woodwork seem to be delusional - and out for money and fame. They know they are involved with a married man but claim they know he loves them, would never lie to them, ad nauseam. Why in the world would any woman think a man is honest with her when she knows he lies to and betrays not only his wife to whom he vowed fidelity but also his children and the rest of his family? Do they really not see they are being used solely for their bodies?Are they so full of self-loathing and worthlessness that they can only find a bit of self-esteem by taking from others? They are greedy, self-indulgent predators for whom the ends justify the means. They sell their stories in an impossible effort to create some meaning in their sad lives.None of them seem to feel any sense of responsibility for actions they willingly took. None of them are sorry for the pain they've helped inflict. None of them have any dignity, humility or feel a shred of shame for the disgrace they bring to those around them. They are sociopaths and worthless, morally bankrupt, inferior frauds on a path of destruction. Unfortunately, the destruction spreads far beyond themselves to many innocent victims.On the other hand, it’s good to hear Elizabeth Edwards has moved on so the gold digger can no longer hurt her. Hopefully the same will be true for her children.

And a message to these women: You weren't the first and aren't the last! You were just a temporary stop along the way to be discarded when the man is finished with you.

Elizabeth Edwards should be celebrating the passage of health care reform. It has been pointed out that the Edwards campaign was the driving force behind the Democrats taking a stand on health care. As we now know, it was all Elizabeth Edwards! She should smile whenever someone benefits by receiving health care services not available otherwise. What an extraordinary contribution she has made!

Yes. Kudos to Elizabeth for her work to change health care in America!John Edwards had one redeeming quality - Elizabeth. Without her he should find a job in the private sector to support his families. He should stay out of the public eye as he has nothing left to offer. (If he thinks he'll ever have a public role in humanitarian work, he's as delusional as his tramp.)

Well, the gold digger isn't ready for her turn in the spotlight to end yet. Now the tabloid reports she "crashed" a children's party where she shared that she is still nursing her daughter. Why would anyone tell a group of strangers that, especially since she has to know it will end up in print? Oh, because she loves the "attention" even when it exposes her failings.Any decent mother would realize nursing at later ages can cause problems with the child's teeth but either she isn't that bright or doesn't care.I feel sorry for the little girl. Too bad there is no one in her life to intervene and get her help, especially with her speech delay, before it is too late to help her.

Here's a post at the Daily Kos worth reading, or at least the Gold Dust Woman should read: http://www.dailykos.com/storyonly/2010/4/1/853055/-The-scars-dont-show,-the-wounds-dont-heal-%28repost%29

She can read and read and read about parenting but it won't do any good. Such a sociopath is incapable of thinking of anyone else. (The only thing missing from the page is her photo.)Obviously she has demonstrated her child is a tool to be used for money, attention and "fame" as she defines it. (The poor girl!)In her interview she claimed until death love for Edwards but then, despite her protestation, proceeded to emasculate him by saying he was too weak to discuss marital problems with his wife and was practically giddy and jumping into her arms when he saw her. She is all about herself and will use anyone and anything to get what she wants. Anyone who gets in her way - beware! People like her don't change!

It's ironic that Elizabeth Edwards was the person defending John's skills and the mistress emasculates him. Most wives with cheating husbands would be the one bashing him to everyone who knows him. The delusional mistress who thinks she'll become the second wife is usually the one supporting him.Just goes to show more about this tramp - not that we haven't seen way too much of her already.
By JeanLouise, at 2:26 PM
Just read the tramp is going to be "interviewed" (aka telling her fictional, delusional stories) to Oprah. Go to: https://www.oprah.com/ownshow/plug_form.html?plug_id=220Submit questions for Oprah to ask so maybe she won't drool all over her like the GQ interview but will ask the tough questions she should face.Spread the word, too!
