John Edwards To Marry Mistress Weeks After Wife's Death????

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooLove LineJohn Edwards


We sincerely hope this isn't true. Because if it is, it's absolutely disgusting.

The National Enquirer is reporting that now that Elizabeth Edwards has passed away, John Edwards has already asked mistress Rielle Hunter to marry him.

No other real details yet, but as we stated, this is a whole new level of inappropriate - and all-around low, if in fact true.


Well, we guess we'll find out sooner or later.

    WOW! Out of the frying pan and into the fire. Good luck being married to that nut job. Hope he gets her to sign a pre nup

  2. 2

    Um……Perez, really? Are you kidding here? You are reporting on something the National Enquirer just posted? You must have nothing else to talk about today…

  3. 3

    Thank God he didn't become president. He definitely did not deserve to be a part of Elizabeth's will. God bless that woman's soul. But wait, Perez! Why aren't you talking about your dear little Chezza? I thought your obsession has succumbed you to talk about the unknown celebrity in every post. Before you know it, you'll be linking her to Obama.

    So what? Things like that happen all the time.

    Condolences to the Pahlavi family (the Iranian Royal family) with the passing of Prince Alireza Pahlavi.

    Everything printed by the Enquirer should be taken as complete bullshit. They're never credible.

  8. 8

    OMG! She's dead. Is he not allowed to move on? Come on Perez, pull it together.

  9. 9

    I'm sure it's not true but even if it is, why is it inappropriate? Don't you traditionalists always want men to "legitimize" their kids with marriage?

    he sure is a good looking man. Slime doesn't besmirch those eyes and that smile and that hair.

    as for the will, he is still legally married to Elizabeth so probably inherits something, but why would he want her cars and clothing and jewelry and crap anyway? the kids might.

    Re: luvs2tango – Prince Alireza Pahlavi ? What royal family ? So far as I know, Iran is a Republic, no chance of ever becoming a monarchy. I offer my condolences to Farah Diba, the ex-empress of Iran.

  11. 11

    Let him move on there is a special place for both of them. I can almost see them in the boiler room.

  12. 12

    a total scumbag…..he deserves whatever is coming his way - and it can't be good.

  13. 13

    And next they'll have a reality show about their "love" … ick. Every time I see this dude it makes me want to take a shower with brillo pads to get the slime off … so glad she cut him out of her will. Skeeze.

  14. 14

    Interesting that this is announced on the day it was announced in the media that he is left out entirely out of the will…thank God for that - maybe she could have left him enough to buy a vault to place the disgusting sex tapes him and is mistress like to make so that no other family member has to be hurt…sad.

  15. 15

    It's in incredibly poor taste, but maybe not as much as cheating on your wife while she's fighting cancer, or renewing your vows to your wife while you have a pregnant girlfriend. The guy is the king of pigs. At least if he marries her it might at least imply that he loves her and didn't just tank his marriage and destroy his wife for an easy lay.

  16. 16

    Dirtbag.They deserve each other.She's a loon.

    Re: LazaroSi3333 – -
    Of course Iran is a Republic. I should have said "Imperial" instead of the "Royal" Pahlavi family that were exiled from Iran. My dad lived in Tehran for many years as a consultant to, Iran Air, and I lived there only one year, but enjoyed it immensely. Flew back for her coronation in '67, when our family received an honored invitation. So, I have an emotional connection.
    For me, Farah Diba had even more style than Jackie.
    Just a lot of sadness with the youngest, Prince Alireza, killing himself.
    His sister also commited suicide a few years back.
    So much pain for the family.
    Too sad for words, just like the Edwards saga.

  18. 18

    And this guy was a serious contender for President. Thank goodness the Enquirer went where no other media outlet was willing to go.
    Re: HarleyDexter – Seriously? Like all the stories they ran about this guy that turned out the be TRUE.

  19. 19

    Edwards is Pure scum! Knew it would happen, I feel for the kids we as woman that's what happens we get screwed always. You see, mrs edwards was a loving care devoted wife and mother, spent her whole life caring for her loser of a so called husband and loving children and bam gets cancer! Then to add insult to injury she's blindsided by her husband and his whore. And where is she? Everything she's done for her family for her life and she's repaid by leaving this earth far too early! And her so called scumbag of a loser husband is free to continue living with his whack job of a whore with no looking back? And they say life is fair? I hope everyday he is alive is nothing bur pure hell its what he deserves

  20. 20

    Well who doesn't think he is a dirt bag? What does he have to lose? That being said, I have known two people whose spouse have died after a long battle with cancer and they both moved on right away. I wonder if having a spouse die from cancer just takes that big of a toll on someone. Either way, he still is a douche!

    the man's white trash…and reille is french for whore. They deserve each other. It's twooo wuv.


  22. 22

    He's scum just like Prince Charles.

  23. @v@ says – reply to this


    He's a real survivor, I'll give him that.

  24. 24

    omg Perez…for real? I think of myself as being totally conservative, and even I think you need to leave this one alone. For God's sake…the guy already cheated on his gravely ill wife, had a love child and then lied about it all while his wife was still ALIVE. Does it really matter that he marries the mother of his love child, when she's dead???? I mean seriously!

  25. 25

    I don't see it as inappropriate. Why is it worse for a man to cheat on a wife with cancer than any other wife? Seems more reason to cheat when the spouse is sick, actually, and it has to do with psychological rugs being pulled out from under more than sex. And why on earth would it be wrong for him to marry the mother of his now illegitimate child? Elizabeth Edwards, god rest her soul, was just a woman, not a saint. Let's stop making her one. And let's stop making John Edwards into a scum bag. He is a decent man with good values who made a mistake that many many others have made and will make. Move on.

  26. 26

    If that is true know one will ever take him seriously again with his causes and politics.

  27. 27

    Re: princessnikki36
    What about the young children's feelings, to marry so soon?
    How would you feel, if your dad married the other woman, so soon after your mother's death?
    Not even one year of "official" mourning?
    It belittles Elizabeth's importance. No?

  28. 28

    Re: Denver5280 – i agree with you. my aunt died about 4 years ago of breast cancer and her husband moved on super fast after she died. he hooked up with the next door neighbor (who was fat and ugly btw), sold the house and all their possessions and doesn't talk to the family anymore. my family finally gave up trying to include him in family get togethers after he told my other aunt that he wanted nothing to do with the family. it was all bizarre but who are we to judge i guess? i think he had already detached himself from her emotionally before she died, while she was dying.

  29. 29

    Hope this isn't true…why can't he just date her, at least for a couple of years! Poor Elizabeth Edwards.

  30. 30

    Re: brat93111 – Maybe you have forgotten that the National Enquirer broke the story of the affair and the "love" child? They nailed him.

    "Edwards once calmed an anxious Hunter by promising her that after his wife died, he would marry her in a rooftop ceremony in New York with an appearance by the Dave Matthews Band". - Wikipedia

    Come on, Perez…Cut and paste is so lazy.

  31. 31

    i live in england and this hasn't been covered here (to my knowledge) so had to google Elizabeth Edwards. It's so sad and even if he did admit to an affair, to show such insensitivity after her death is disgusting. I may be wrong (sorry, going on pretty quick research) but she had been ill for a while, even though the spread of the illness was quick. It's not as though he was having an affair and his wife tragically died in an accident, he knew what was going on. It's him that has to live with it but i doubt he has a conscious

  32. 32

    Nothing that scumbag does surprises me or anyone. It's a disgusting accusation but he's disgusting so he deserves all the bad press he gets, no matter if it is true or not. In private, it probably is. How many times did we hear that he said 'when Elizabeth goes…..' to that whore Hunter?

  33. 33

    If he marries that whore I hope she realizes how much he likes anal sex.

    Re: Beagles2 – Oh PLEASE. Rielle is majorly fucked up and is quite a huge slut but DO NOT paint Elizabeth as some sort of saint. Elizabeth Edweards was a WITCH. Most who know her will attest to this. She castigated, chastised, and demeaned John Edwards every chance she got. To his face, behind his back, in public, etc. Elizabeth Edwards was an entitled C U Next Tuesday, truth be told. She felt she was above EVERYONE, including her husband and she put on a HUGE ACT for the media. At least Rielle is more honest about who and WHAT she is. Oh, and you know one of the reasons John Edwards went for Rielle? Becuase Rielle kept telling him how hot and how brilliant and how great he is…things LizBitch NEVER did. You know what? As much as I think Rielle is a complete wackjob, she treats John Edwards with RESPECT…something he never got from his wife. Sure, John Edwards may have cheated EVEN IF Liz Edwards treated him with kindness and respect….but we will never know that because Liz Edwards treated her husband like ABSOLUTE SHIT.

  35. 35

    FYI I don't codone cheating at all, but just decided to put a little bit of the truth out there. Y'all need to read some of the books out about the Edwards' - there are NO saints in the marriage. Oh and another unknown fact - Rielle was sexually abused by her father. Rielle's father also murdered Rielle's beloved horse for the insurance money. This woman did not have it easy…she is very fucked up. Liz Edwards, on the other hand, came from a priveleged and loving family….and was one ENTITLED AND DISENGENUOUS BITCH.

  36. 36

    Re: Monika_Wirkkanen – #6: Ditto to the trillionth power.

  37. 37

    I didn't even know he was still with Rielle(sp)! I haven't heard a damn word about them since the magazine article.

  38. 38

    I really hope that this is not true. How could he stoop so low to do this to his wife's memory. I am in shock and just can't imagine that he could be this big of a cad. Has he lost his mind. This woman trapped him in the first place, although he is the one to have fallen for the trap. My God think of your children with Elizabeth. They would never want him to marry this woman. I just hope the daughter that is in law school can get custody of the kids when she graduates and gets them away from this horrible woman. Those beautiful kids who had such a loving mom do not deserve this. What a scum bag.

  39. 39

    Not true. Don't believe it.
    John is through with that whore. He will probably move outta North Carolina and away from that skank.
    The National Enquire isn't always right.

  40. 40

    men have a switch once they click it like they changed gyms and dont want to set foot in the other gym they are at the new place and totally forgot the old…its a little weird…it happens every day men leave woman with kids they try and take everything and the woman has nothing to give to the new woman look and charles and camilla ..

  41. 41

    He deserves that sleazy bag of botox!

  42. 42

    My guess is the skanks' people released this info. He may be a cheat, and a downright scoundrel, but nobody's ever said he's dumb.

    God bless Elizabeth's children as I am sure they have all they need with each other to go forward. Elizabeth always struck me as someone who made sure that the one's she loved knew how to carry on without her.

    We are a lesser world without her, but God acts in mysterious ways and I'm sure that Elizabeth knew that.

  43. 43

    And THIS is who some people wanted to become VP, the man couldn't control himself and left his family ashamed (I know I would be if this man/child was my dad). I doubt the rumor is true because I like to think no human being could be this cold-hearted but you never know, I'm certain worse things have happened.

    Re: the real carmen – Props to you, carmen, for always stepping back and seeing the bigger picture.

    Slut is a better word……………………..and sleaze is the word for Mr. Edwards…………..

  46. 46

    Re: debracompassion – yea hes got good values alright, if you consider cheating on your wife who is FIGHTING CANCER good values. really?? r u serious? what the hell did u smoke today that made u see Joh Edwards the way you do? He cheated on his wife and had a child with his whore, how are those good values? really nice things to teach your kids "Oh its ok to cheat on ur spouce especially when their fighting a deadly disease, its ok cause i have good values" seriously, get off the drugs.

  47. 47

    It takes two to make a marriage work but John Edwards was supposed to be the upstanding epitome of American values with a brilliant lawyer wife who campaigned for him even holding off beginning her cancer treatments - that's how much she believed he should be President. The drama was all set when we the public and his wife found out about the other woman. Innocent child involved. Wife dies. Will he marry other woman? Definitely movie material…

  48. 48

    Even if this were true, tell me, how would his decision be "inappropriate"? He fathered her kid. His ex is dead.

    You, Perez, are a nutjob. Pull it together indeed.

    He is such a dickhole
