    wow I didnt expect her to pass this soon, RIP Elizabeth

  2. 2

    May she be with God and she will no longer be in pain.

  3. 3

    RIP Elizabeth.
    And as for you, Perez, you put this under your 'breaking news' marquee?? Show some respect, would you?

  4. 4

    This is so very sad. The poor woman had so much bullshit in life. I hope her pain and suffering are ended and she finally gets the rest and respect she has always deserved.
    I also hope her EX-husband feels like shit,right now. Karma is a bitch,John. Maybe your dick will rot off! Ahhhh…sweet justice!

    I hope that rat bastard was not by her side. He had a child out of wedlock when the mother of his 4 children was sick with cancer. He used campaign funds to pay the slut and blamed the baby on his chief aide (Andrew Young). Then he moved the gutter slut into the same area his family lives in. As extra icing, he and the slut make public their wedding plans (including the songs they wanted played) as soon as Elizabeth died. I hope Elizabeth made arrangements for the care of her children that do not include that slime politician.

    RIP, Elizabeth.

    POOR WOMAN!!! I feel soo bad for everything that she has been through!!! Not only did she have cancer but her stupid ass husband cheated on her. When I watched her interview on Larry King Live it shocked me how brave and strong hearted this women was! RIP. This is really sad!

  8. 8

    Extremely sad. May she rest in peace

  9. 9

    Sad.I think its sad how her husband made her look like such a dumass.She will be missed.

    R.I.P Elizabeth. You suffered more than any woman should have had to. Through it all, you maintained poise and dignity. Shame on your ex-husband, for thinking he had any business being by your side. My heart goes out to your children.

  11. 11

    So sad :(

  12. 12

    How sad; what a strong woman…..

  13. 13

    All the above comments said it all. So true! RIP Elizabeth! You are in the arms of the angles. My heart goes out to her children and close family!

  14. 14

    So sad….that asshole John didn't deserve her!

  15. 15

    I feel for her children. It's tough to lose a parent. Hopefully she is with her son Wade in heaven.

  16. 16

    She was a good person surrounded by unfair circumstances. R.I.P.

  17. 17

    I hope her ex-hubby feels guilty every single day for the rest of his life for what he put her through. To cheat on her and father a child out of wedlock all while she was suffering from cancer is such a lowlife thing for him to do. For her to have to deal with all of the bs in the last years of her life is just sad. She was a class act and deserved much better than what she got. At least she's no longer suffering. RIP.

  18. 18

    For some odd reason, this actually saddens me. This woman was so strong, not only physically, but mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. She was dealt with so many hardships, but still managed to see things in a positive light. I found her to be such an incredible person. She had her health issues, the cheating husband with the baby out of wedlock, but she also survived the loss of her child. She handled it all in the public eye and was always dignified. Simply amazing, when so many of us would've broke down and surrendered. RIP

  19. 19

    What is she famous for?

  20. 20

    What a beautiful person. She handled everything with such grace and dignity. She should serve as an example to us all of how to behave when facing such adversity.

  21. 21

    What a sad, sad story.
    Condolences to the family.
    The bastard couldn't even keep it in his pants till she died, and then, he could go on and screw the world.
    To have your last years be what EE went through, I wouldn't wish on anyone, even Michelle Obama.
    I hope John Edwards drowns in his guilt and ends up in jail.
    I would have a terrible time reconciling this if JE was my dad.
    What a selfish narcissist.
    Rest in peace, Elizabeth.

  22. 22

    She's probably known and has been fighting this for a few weeks. They probably didn't announce it till she was close to the end to keep the media away and to let her die in peace.

  23. 23

    I just learned about her passing a few moments ago and only a day after "they" posted on FB that Elizabeth would not seek anymore treatments. I did not know it had moved to her bones and then, lastly her liver. I applaud her class, grace, and dignity through all of her ups and downs. I hope that her and John had some closure to everything that brought him down from grace. I know she is in heaven right now, with her son, and she can finally be free-free of pain and what the "worldly world" brings with it-
    I know her legacy will live on and I know she is out of pain and happy as can be right now! RIP!

    Re: KIKI1986 – You must be living under a rock. Don't ask who? look her up!

  25. 25

    Elizabeth Edwards was the portait of decency and the epitome of class. A truly exceptional woman. May her soul rest in peace.

  26. 26

    Aw, so sad, poor thing. I feel bad for her kids. And I'd love to kick her exhusband in the junk right now, for making her last years a living hell.

  27. 27

    Re: sailorgirl – Cosign.John Edwards is a piece of shit. Now he can be with that gutter trash Rielle.They deserve each other.Elizabeth was too good for him.I hope his younger kids live with their older sister.

  28. 28

    RIP Elizabeth. I'm not saying this sarcastically even, but it's sad her husband didn't die instead, her kids needed her to guide them and their father is the epitome of evil to me.

  29. 29

    God, I feel so sorry for her. Just last night they said she had weeks left, and now - BAM - she's dead. I hope her ex feels like the pile of shit that he is. My heart goes out to her family and especially her little ones. It's got to hurt to lose a parent at that age. RIP Liz.

  30. 30

    So Sad :( Rest in Peace! She didn't deserve anything that Douche did to her!!! Karma's a Bitch

  31. 31

    RIP, Honey.

  32. 32

    q: yeah, but why i was so poor, albeit excellent, to seek food in a hospital?
    a: so be it, what i know now about he way you were treated you were right to complain reverse the charges

  33. 33

    Very sad, indeed. I feel so sad for her family and loved ones. RIP Elizabeth..

  34. 34

    This is definitely something that crosses party lines. My thoughts and prayers are with the Edwards family at this tragic time, and I hope that they will find some measure of peace.

  35. 35

    Re: Cheapmetaphor – With all due respect, the entertainment trades were carrying this news as well, so don't go giving Perez a bunch of crap over it. Celebrity blogger or not, he has just as much right to post things like this as any other reporter.

  36. 36

    Re: Mickey9661 – Show some damn respect, asshole. We don't know what the hell went on at Elizabeth Edwards' bedside, and if she chose to have her estranged husband with her at the end, it's neither my business OR yours. It could very well be that they settled things between them, so unless you know for sure, keep your fucking mouth shut.

  37. 37

    Re: sailorgirl – Second verse, same as the first. See my response to Mickey9661, dear.

  38. 38

    What an inspirational woman! I don't know if there's a heaven, but if there is I hope she's hugging her late son Wade and they're together again. I hope John Edwards feels like the piece of shit that he is! May her children feel comfort in each other at this sad, sad time.

  39. 39

    Such a strong women RIP Elizabeth.

  40. 40

    This is such sad news. Poor ELizabeth did everything to make her husband happy - even as going as far as taking cocktails of hormones to produce a child by IVF late in her life - this potentially could expose her to many conditions. In the end despite all she did he kicked her when she was down….RIP Elizabeth - by all accounts she did appear to be the quintessential caring mother.

  41. 41

    The Family is in my thoughts and prayers

  42. 42

    I have rethought my position on JE going to jail.
    The young kids have lost a mom, and him going to jail and losing the other parent is almost cruel.

  43. 43

    I was absolutely heartbroken when I heard the news of Elizabeth's passing. But I know she's in the arms of God, free of pain. And as for John… I won't judge him. He will be forced to endure the rest of his life knowing he betrayed his loving wife in the worst way, all while she battled a horrific disease. There's nothing anyone can say or do to remove those terrible feelings. He should just focus on making things right with the Lord above. RIP Elizabeth

    Re: luvs2tango – The jail's in his head, or will be, unless he's a true sociopath which could also be.

  47. 47

    Re: KIKI1986 – Have some respect.

  48. 48

    do you think he'll have enough sense not to bring the whore to his wife's funeral?

    Rest In Peace.

  50. 50

    Rest In Peace Ms Edwards. You were a wonderful example to your children and they will live on through you.

  51. 51

    She deserved so much better. RIP Elizabeth

  52. 52

    Very very sad. I felt horrible for this women for everything she's been publicly been put through. May she rest in peace.

    Re: KIKI1986 – are you effing serious? try reading some REAL "news", not just the mindless gossip websites

    Rest in Peace Elizabeth. I hope John Edwards suffers every day for the rest of his life for what he put her through. I am sure what he did to her made her last years on this earth horrible. I hope he suffers every day knowing that he contributed to her early demise. All the stress he put her through as she was trying to fight cancer. he is a pig and that pile of garbage woman he had that bastard child with is a pig as well. i hope they both rot in hell.

  55. 55

    RIP Elizabeth. And how dare u Perez putting this under your Breaking News marquee. Totally disrespectful!

  56. 56

    Re: bich45 – Her husband didn't make her look like a dumbass. Her husband made himself look like a dumbass.

  57. 57

    The last thing (literally) she needed to see was that DOUCHE BAG John by her side! What a horrible last thing to see! A lying, cheating husband. I'm sad. RIP Elizabeth. You were too good for that P.O.S.

  58. 58

    Re: NYSek
    "are you effing serious? try reading some REAL "news", not just the mindless gossip websites"
    Actually, The National Enquirer first broke this story and no "real" newspaper, like the NY Times or WaPo would touch one of their own, for a very, very long time. It's back to why we have candidates that aren't vetted by the disgrace of our national media.
    Kiki1986's lack of knowledge who EE is, indicates she does not read gossip sites or she would know about it.

  59. 59

    So sad, Elizabeth had alot more dignity and grace than most of us. She will always be thought as being a beautiful, strong and couragous woman. John is truly a bastard for what he did not just to his wife but the mother of his children. He will never feel the heartbreak she did, I hope him and his gutter skank live miserable lives, which is what they both deserve. And for Rielle, I saw your Oprah interview and "YOUR TRUTH" is your full of bull sh*t.

  60. 60

    My condolences go out to her family, including John. Affair or no affair, this is the mother of most of his children, and a woman he spent a great deal of his life with. Doing something bad does not necessarily mean you are a bad person, and that you have no feelings at all. I hope Elizabeth is free of all of her pain now, and her loved ones can take comfort in her peace. Negative statements about John have no place here, and no one has any right to say someone doesn't have the right to grieve. She forgave him, you all should too.

  61. 61

    rest in peace…and she will certainly be at peace being far away from that douche ex husband and being a guardian angel over her children…prayers are certainly w. her family

  62. 62

    Rest in peace, Elizabeth =)

  63. 63

    RIP Elizabeth I know the last few years have been hell for you. I believe your a strong woman and you are an amazing woman. RIP

  64. 64

    So horrible. My mom, aunt, and both grandmothers had breast cancer/melanoma stage4. I really hope her kids, and family are doing well. Hopefully John– never mind wrong place, but yeah, you get my drift there. RIP Elizabeth!!

  65. 65

    hope the kids get all the money all john gets is the middle finger

    Re: sailorgirl

    If she forgave him on her dying bed, I have nothing to say. I hope he stays by his childrens side, because they really need hime right now.

  68. 68

    RIP Elizabeth, ur husband is a douche he didn't deserve u

    Re: sailorgirl

    The kids should go to their father rather you like it or not! And since they were married, he doesn't have to fight for custody!

    Re: vanhelsing bride

    John is a slimeball, but he also was also HER HUSBAND AND THE KIDS DAD. Everything goes to him.

  71. 71

    Re: Shayla AlDila

    What John did was awful, but her opinion matters the most, and like you said, he is the kids father. All the ones are saying he shouldn't raise his kids, need to put the crack pipe down.

  72. 72

    whoa - she totally gave up on that fight. I think she was tired, and obviously ready to go. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.

  73. 73

    I've cried a lot since her death. Such a wonderful lady, who had to endure so much public humiliation and tragedy. She was courageous and a person who fought for social justice. She will never be forgotten.

  74. 74

    Ms. Edwards will remain my role model, as long as I live. What I particularly admire about her is that she NEVER passed judgement on anybody, least of all the father of her children. We should imitate her classy act, don't cast the first stone, we are all sinners and we all hurt other people during our lifetime. Rest in peace my beautiful Elizabeth, I will always think of you and hope to behave in the same manner when life throws bad things in my direction. Thank you Elizabeth.

  75. 75

    R.I.P. Ms. Edwards. She is now in a better place amongst the Lord.
