Now that politician John Edward’s estranged wife, Elizabeth, has passed away, did he propose to his mistress?!?
The National Enquirer (I know I know) is saying that Edwards is going to make an honest (cough) woman out of Rielle Hunter. (Now normally anything in the NE is suspect, but they DID break this story wide open, and had most of their ducks in a row on it. So let’s give it a try shall we?)
The tabloid, quoting an “insider,” says Edwards popped the question after Christmas, “although they haven’t set a wedding date yet.” The two first hooked up in 2006…
“In an outrageous disregard for his wife Elizabeth’s deathbed wish, John has proposed to his mistress just three weeks after burying his heartbroken spouse,” the Enquirer trumpeted.[Politics Daily]
If you don’t remember, Rielle and John hooked up while his wife, Elizabeth was in remission with breast cancer. Oh, and then they had a BABY and tried to say it wasn’t John’s child but rather his married assistant’s!!!
John’s wife Elizabeth died from her breast cancer December 7, 2010.
I guess I’m not surprised to hear that these two are engaged. But the part of the story that really gets me is that over the Christmas break John allegedly introduced his children (that he had with Elizabeth) to Rielle and Rielle told them to call her MOM!! That would be a NO!
These two deserve each other. ICK! I’m so glad Elizabeth left him out of her will!
