The Last Will & Testament Of Elizabeth Edwards Released

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad SadJohn Edwards

So sad.

Just six days before her untimely death, Elizabeth Edwards signed off on her will that this morning has finally been released.

Her eldest daughter Catharine, a lawyer, is named as executor of the will and after reading the document, we've learned she left everything to her three children. Quoting Elizabeth straight from the document, she said:

"All of my furniture, furnishings, household goods, jewelry, china, silverware and personal effects and any automobiles owned by me at the time of my death, I give and bequeath to my children."

Eveything else, she left to Catharine. Her ex-husband, John Edwards, was left nothing and was never even mentioned in the will.

Bet that stings a bit. Not that she didn't leave him anything, mind you, but we think it sends a pretty strong message that she didn't even mention him. Just goes to show how much he really hurt her.

Three days after losing her battle with breast cancer, Elizabeth Edwards was laid to rest Saturday at a North Carolina church.

John Edwards and their three children were joined by more than 1,200 mourners at the funeral service. Their oldest daughter Cate delivered the eulogy to her mother, saying:

"She has been a light house to all of us. She's always been that source of light to us. Every lesson she has taught us has become part of our ethic."

She was such a brave woman. May she rest in peace.

Is John Edwards' Mistress Already Trying To Marry Him?

There's no other way to describe this. It's just deplorable.

Not even a day after Elizabeth Edwards six-year-long battle with cancer ended with her passing, estranged husband John's mistress, Rielle Hunter, is allegedly making moves to marry the shamed politician!

A source explains:

"Rielle has been very patient through all of this. She still believes that John is her soul mate, and she thinks that they're going to get married. She doesn't care about anyone but herself. She's been selfish and horrible this whole time, no matter what else has been said about her. She will say nice things about Elizabeth, but only if it makes her look good."

This makes us sick to even think about.

We suppose there are just no limits to how low some people will go.

Disgusting.

We still are in shock over this. So unbelievably tragic.

After hearing the news that Elizabeth Edwards lost her battle with cancer yesterday, President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, released the following statement:

"In her life, Elizabeth Edwards knew tragedy and pain. Many others would have turned inward; many others in the face of such adversity would have given up. But through all that she endured, Elizabeth revealed a kind of fortitude and grace that will long remain a source of inspiration."

He later wrote via Twitter:

Our country has benefited from the voice Elizabeth Edwards gave to the cause of building a society that lifts up all those left behind.

Such lovely and true words. It seems like such an unfair loss.

R.I.P. Elizabeth.

You were a fighter and an inspiration to many. You will be very much missed.

And we're sure she'll have some inneresting tidbits to share!

Elizabeth Edwards has granted the Today show her first TV interview since the separation from her husband of 30 years, John Edwards.

In the segment, which will air Thursday morning, Elizabeth is candid with Matt Lauer about her failed marriage. She even likens herself to Sandra Bullock.

She said:

"I think about Sandra Bullock … . And yet, the stories you hear are not about all those great successes, but about the failure of her marriage. … I thought that's not who she is. I don't know her but I assume she wants to reclaim who she is in the same way I want to reclaim who I am

I think he [John] changed over time. I think it was sort of hard for me to see it or admit it for a very long time. But he changed. … And he's no longer the person who I married. I still admire an enormous number of things about him."

Watch the clip (above) for a sneak peek!

Aww. Ugh, you can't help but feel for her. Stay strong, honey.

Elizabeth Edwards is battling terminal breast cancer, but denies that she is trying to ensure custody of her two youngest children will go to her eldest daughter Cate.

Rumors were flying that Elizabeth was grooming Cate, a 28-year-old Harvard-educated lawyer, for raising her younger siblings Emma, 12 and Jack, 10 after their mother had passed in order to keep the children from her husband John Edwards and his mistress Rielle Hunter.

"The story is not true," Elizabeth said. She also said that no other family members would get the children and that they would go to John.

Such a sad situation all around.

Rielle Slammed By Her Own Sister

Filed under: Oprah WinfreyJohn Edwards

Homewrecker Rielle Hunter isn't collecting any fans by making the rounds on Oprah or any other media outlets.

And the person who likes her the least - is her own sister, Roxanne Marshall!

"We were hoping she would own-up to some of the things she did," said Marshall, who sides John Edwards' wife Elizabeth.

The whole family was "very upset" regarding Rielle's actions and the fact that she didn't apologize!

She continued:

"They were married, she has cancer. She has two little children. She deserves some respect. I would like to tell Mrs. Edwards that I feel so bad about the whole situation, and in my heart, I feel for her."

Although the two were close growing up, Rielle and Roxanne have drifted apart.

"She just chose to take another path, and I don't know who she is," Marshall divulged. "She's crossed over a boundary none of us would ever even think about."

Sad.
