Elizabeth Edwards Gets Her Revenge On John - Even After Her Passing!

| Filed under: Legal MattersR.I.P.Love LineSad SadJohn Edwards


Holy shiz! Best final "eff you" ever!

And all we can really say is…good for her!

The National Enquirer is reporting that before her death, Elizabeth Edwards managed to exact the ultimate revenge on her cheating, dirtbag husband, John Edwards, by recording a secret videotape in which she revealed everything she knew about his affair with Rielle Hunter and its subsequent cover-up, so she could pass it along to the prosecutors investigating him for campaign finance violations!

According to sources, Edwards reached out to her daughter, Cate, in December of 2010, and forced her to agree that if anything were to happen to John, she would take care of their younger children. That's when shiz got real!

The insider explains:

“Elizabeth wanted to exact revenge against John for destroy­ing their 33-year marriage and family by cheating with Rielle. It was Elizabeth’s idea to secret­ly record a video and tell what knew of the affair and John’s horrific betrayal. It was then – without Cate’s knowledge – that Elizabeth turned the video camera on herself. She passed the video to a close friend and asked that it be sent to prosecutors. On the secret video, Elizabeth spells out EVERYTHING she knew. Elizabeth wanted to haunt John and Rielle – literally from her grave – and she has."

What can we say? Payback's a bitch.

As much as we hate to be negative, we think that for the amount of pain and suffering she endured at his hands, we can only hope that her dying wish comes true.

    Ha ha…smart lady that Eliz. Edwards….I hope J. Edwards goes down in flames….just another cheater who got caught….idiot.

  2. 2

    Everything I've read abou Elizabeth Edwards paints her as the most difficult woman on earth o be married to. Her sweet appearance was greatly exaggerated. What he did was wrong because of his position but if my wife becomes that much of an intolerable bitch I'll do the same.

  3. 3

    TO: The Edwards children
    Let the healing begin! Oops, too late.

  4. 4

    Its hearsay and can't be admitted into court as evidence. Nice try and I'd do the same thing!!!

    The affair is not the illegal part… the campaign financing and covering up you relationship is… regardless if she was the top bitch in the world - she didn't force her husband to wuss out and use funds inappropriately. Our politicians are setting the bar on ethics, morality and tolerance for lying very low - sub subterranean even. Hopefully something with change someday where the people in elected offices are not the ones that are best at lying, cheating and making everyone think there shit don't stink when in fact they are feeding the public a crap sandwich from the moment they open their mouth. Screw the hell out of anyone you want… just don't use campaign financing, your PR firm to hide the fact that you are a douchebag. Let everyone know and see if they still vote for you.

    I always thought she was the brains in that duo. Good for her!!! Sometimes karma needs a little push. Hope he gets jail time to think about his arrogance and the pain he caused.

  7. 7

    Wow-talk about going out with a bang. Good for her, I just hope she died peacefully and not full of anger and bitterness because that SOB John doesn't deserve her grief.

  8. 8

    No, it could still hold up in court, as long as what she says can be backed up to a degree. And that dumb bitch edwards did it to himself, she's just the messenger. I wouldn't want that shithead raising my kids either, I don't blame her one bit.

  9. 9

    i find this hard to believe. not that she wouldn't have every right to do it, but i don't see her subjecting her young children to more pain

  10. 10

    Good for her! I mean to cheat on your wife when she is dying of cancer is just despicable.

  11. 11

    I say Elizabeth Edwards was the kind of person that would NOT leave an "eff-you" or want revenge as her "last dying wish".
    Not to mention your source is "National Enquirer"………. HaHaHaaa like they print the truth!

  12. 12

    What he did was unforgivable, and hopefully the rest of his life will reflect the end of his political career. However, keeping the spotlight on his transgressions will hurt her kids as well as her husband. They don't need a reminder of how their family fell apart, especially in the wake of their mother's death. I hope she chose to protect her children over any desire for revenge she might have had.

  13. 13

    Your source is The ENQUIRER?

  14. Beccx says – reply to this


    A woman scorned.

  15. 15

    I hope she didn't do this! She would be hurting her children even more while they're trying to cope with losing her. I sincerely hope this is NOT true! Let the children heal, let them enjoy their father as best they can, it's all they have left!

  16. 16

    The National Enquirer isn't a source, and it isn't likely she would put her family through any further suffering.

  17. 17

    This is the stuff dreams are made of haunt them Elizabeth and show em who's boss.

  18. 18

    This once again confirms that John had a mistress, but also makes clear that Elizabeth was one nasty, vindictive, likely hard-to-live-with BEYOTCH.

  19. 19

    The Enquirer broke the story about John's affair in the first place. It's the only reputable thing they've done ever, but still.

  20. 20

    THIS is truly AWESOME! So smart!…

  21. 21

    Well, Johnny probably wasn't getting any at home. He probably has ugly women throwing themselves at him all of the time. He should have had a vasectomy or at least used condoms, but the question is did he use donated campaign funds to cover himself? yes

  22. 22

    Why I don't believe this story at all. When somebody knows that he/she is dying, he/she will only concentrate on one thing only, praying and asking God to forgive all his/her mistakes/sins. Recording and videotaping something with the intention to get her revenge on John Edwards,will be the last thing in the mind of somebody who is dying and soon will be joining God in his kingdom. Elizabeth Edwards loved her children too much to do that.
