Report: Rielle Hunter Wants Paternity Test

by at . Comments

As if Elizabeth Edwards' book tour - one seemingly designed only to humiliate John Edwards and Rielle Hunter - the former presidential candidate's furious mistress is demanding he submit to a DNA test, according to National Enquirer.

NOTE: Before discrediting this report based on the source, do recall that it was this very celebrity gossip tabloid that broke the story of his affair - and the possible love child that Rielle gave birth to in February 2008 - in the first place.

When Edwards finally came clean regarding the affair last August, he said the father was his former aide, Andrew Young, and Hunter declared that there would not be any paternity testing on her daughter, Frances Quinn. Quite convenient.

But now, the Enquirer says she wants proof that John Edwards is the father of her 14-month-old love child and is working with a lawyer to take legal action.

The blonde divorcee, 41, has been derided as pathetic in the new book, Resilience, written by the ex-senator's cancer-stricken wife, Elizabeth Edwards.

Rielle's sudden move to determine paternity is a clear signal that she is no longer willing to protect the philandering politician, according to sources. 

Having been thrown under the bus by Elizabeth Edwards in her new book, an enraged Rielle Hunter is apparently trying to take John Edwards down with her.

Edwards is also the subject of a federal investigation into the possible misuse of campaign funds in payments made to Hunter's "production company."

"Rielle - probably naively - now realizes she had held onto a false promise that if she continued to take part in the cover-up John had engineered, they'd be together in the future," a source close to Hunter told The Enquirer.

Of the likely fabrication that Andrew Young is the father, the source adds:

"[Rielle Hunter] was willing to protect John for the sake of the child. She agreed to allow a crony of his to claim publicly that he is the baby's father, and she even kept the name of the father blank on the birth certificate."

"But now she can see there's never going to be a future with John - and she feels he's lied about his promise to keep Elizabeth from trashing her in the book."

"Rielle is so infuriated by his and Elizabeth's actions that she's throwing her loyalty to him out of the window! Rielle wants the paternity of her daughter Frances finally established. She knows it could ruin John for good."

Ruin him how? Quashing a third presidential run?

Seems like he's pretty ruined as is, but why not pile it on? He's still probably lying about the child, after all, and we'd hate to see him get away with that. Seriously, who cheats on their cancer-stricken wife while running for president?

Think a small part of Elizabeth Edwards is loving this right now?

Rielle Hunter (aka Lisa Jo Druck/Hunter) had a bit part in a film...she played a trashy whore in the movie 'Overboard' :-) When Goldie Hawn's character gets injured and goes missing, her philandering husband picks up some trashy, slutty women to dance around half naked on his yacht. Wonder if that's where she got her inspiration...talk about life imitating art...okay, so maybe not art ;-)

John and OShrop are absolutely right. How does John Edwards not take most of the responsibility for his actions? He was arrogant enough to cheat on his ailing wife. He should step up to the plate and take the paternity test and be a man and not the weasel he has shown the world he is. The innocent child is the one who gets hurt in the end. And unfortunately, if the child turns out to be his then Elizabeth will have to come to grips that she (the baby) will be a part of John's life if he does the honorable thing and takes part in her life.

It is amazing to me how all the blame for this affair falls on Rielle Hunter. If Mrs. Edwards wanted all this noise stop all she had to do was not write the book. Here's the simple truth....IT TAKES TWO for a affair to take place. All Mr. Edwards had to do was say NO. Just like most liberals....blame it on the other person. Mr Edwards didn't know what he was doing. He was in a weakened state...Bull...I blame him more then Rielle...He's the whore!

Elizabeth is using her husband's affair with Rielle to sell copies of her book. How pathetic is that? Elizabeth criticized Hillary for her decision to stand by Bill, yet finds herself in the same position. Don't believe she made the decision for her children's sake -- if she put her children first, she wouldn't have included the affair in her book, and go on a promotional tour to criticize the mother of her children's half sister. John is no prize. He should stand up and be responsible for his youngest daughter.

Rielle Hunter is a tramp plain and simple. You don't go up to a man and say, "you are so hot" without wanting to get laid! John fell for it and then a child, mayby his. Like Elizabeth said on the Oprah interview that affair and possible child is part of his life, not hers. She is dying of cancer and her children will be without her. She is trying to move forward with what life she has left with her family. There is time later for a DNA test and John to have some kind of relationship with that child if it is his, if he so wishes. Rielle wants to hurt Elizabeth more by demanding the test now. Retalliation for the book being written. Mrs. Edwards has every right to express her feelings. If it gets under Rielle's skin being called a groupie and pathetic, well if the shoe fits wear it!

The Rielle(Real) Hunter is a Gold digger,
a woman who associates with or marries a man chiefly for material gain. As you all continue to discuss Lisa Druke's lastest pay day story from the National Enquirer. I think you all should remember these important
facts:
John and Elizabeth Edwardsa have been married for 31 years.
They had four children together, three are living, and one, recently, died. Elizabeth Edwards has stage 4 cancer.
Any decent human being would not have inserted herself
into their lives, and then sold stories about them to the National Enquiererfor monetary gain.
Lisa Druke, a.k.a. the Rielle (Real) Hunter fills me with disgust. I hope someday to never hear anything about her again. By the way, whose fault is that the Rielle (Real) Hunter does not know who the father of her child is?

I don't think she is 41.

John Edwards Quotes

I am and have been willing to take any test necessary to establish the fact that I am not the father of any baby, and I am truly hopeful that a test will be done so this fact can be definitively established.

John Edwards

In 2006, I made a serious error in judgment and conducted myself in a way that was disloyal to my family and to my core beliefs.
