Elizabeth Edwards' much-hyped new memoir, Resilience, hits bookstore shelves on May 12th, and the wife of the cheating presidential hopeful John Edwards didn't stifle her feelings when discussing her husband's affair!
The terminally ill Edwards - battling cancer - describes the moment her husband told her of his infidelities in detail, "I cried and screamed, I went to the bathroom and threw up."
Even though she never mentions her husband's mistress,Rielle Hunter's name, once in the book, she illustrates Hunter as "pathetic," and a "parasitic groupie who invaded the Edwardses' life."
John had informed Elizabeth of his affair with his illegitimate babymomma in 2006, and Elizabeth even urged her husband to drop out of the presidential race before he found himself in the middle of a public cheating scandal!
How right was she?!
The most shocking decision Elizabeth has made throughout this ordeal, to us at least, is to remain by her husband's side! "I lie in bed, circles under my eyes, my sparse hair sticking in too many directions, and he looks at me as if I am the most beautiful woman he has ever seen. It matters," writes Edwards on the topic of her forgiveness.
Having the ability to forgive is an admirable quality!
