Elizabeth Edwards Wants John to Support Rielle Hunter, Love Child

by at . Comments

Elizabeth Edwards wants cheating husband John to support his love child with Rielle Hunter, and even wants to meet the little girl personally, sources say.

Surprisingly, Elizabeth wants John to fully support the baby and even wants to meet John and Rielle's love child in person, The National Enquirer says.

While she's heartbroken over John Edwards' “second family,” Elizabeth is determined that the former presidential candidate avoid an ugly court battle.

“Elizabeth feels that above all else, John and Rielle need to put their differences aside,” a close source told The Enquirer. "This is very difficult for her."

“As much as she hates that John has a second family, she can't stand the idea of Rielle Hunter going public with all of their dirty laundry in court."

"She instructed John to have his lawyers call Rielle's people and say they're giving her what she wants. She's also going to meet Rielle's little girl.”

THIS IS AWKWARD: If Elizabeth Edwards meets Rielle Hunter and her daughter, that could lead to a lot of tense conversation. And hopefully a reality show on MTV.

Rielle is reportedly seeking $17,000 a month in child support from John, who she has never formally acknowledged is the father of her daughter.

John has admitted sleeping with Rielle but denies he is the father of Frances, who will turn 2 on February 27. But come on, most people think he is.

Elizabeth is apparently one of them.

“Despite her anger at Rielle, who she calls a stalker and a home wrecker, Elizabeth knows Frances didn't bring any of this about,” said a source.

“Elizabeth sometimes breaks down in tears when she talks about Frances. Once she said, ‘She needs a daddy. All children need their father.'”

Even if their father is a guy who knocked up some weird videographer while his wife battled breast cancer and he was running for president?

Maybe single motherhood is best sometimes.


The funniest part is it's all true. (I mean, who could make that stuff up.) The "Real" Hunter posted all that stuff before the affair. Bet Edwards didn't know she was only using him for penetration. Now he's only being used moving heavy objects at his wife's furniture store.


Truthiness, that was great stuff. Post more of that "Being Is Free" comedy -- never laughed so hard so early in the morning.


John and Rielle are both cheaters and liars,however John is the adulterer.Elizabeth had to be devastated and has the hardest part,dealing with it.Elizabeth should do what is best for Elizabeth.


What about the sex they had in Andrew Young's house when Rh was pregnant? It seems this is on tape. Wait until the book comes out and the dates for the suit may extend considerably. There are witnesses to these acts. Except for the tape, they may not have been in the room, but if AY taped a sex act it may be RH and JE don't know which one and will have to admit any when faced with the question under oath or be faced with lying under oath. Jordan and NCvoter have valid points. I just think it is time for women to stand up and clobber these women who interfere with their lives and children's lives and do it to the full extent of the law, Man and God's. Get some self respect and get a job RH and anyone who tries to steal from another woman and her family.


Carolee, Yes and yes but it is the weekend. I got your IM and will ping you back shortly instead of discussing here.


The troll is back! Can you do your techie magic again? Did you follow up as you mentioned you would yesterday?


Elizabeth is still with John,duh,Why? Divorce John!


Great again,nc voter! Valid points on all three! All pro-R.H,or E.E.,or J.E.,commenters need to read this!


POSTED BY Pay up John! "Elizabeth should be angry with John too" Where in the freak did u get that Eliz isnt angry with John!??! my God, imagine the heart wrenching torture. You have no idea what you are talking about. Bring some common sense to the table when you come here please. thanks.


Oooh, conspiracy theory! So there are two John Edwardses out there. One was running for Prez and taking care of his wife and their children while the other one was banging Hunter and hanging out with scum like Young.

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.
