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.”

Rielle Hunter, Frances Quinn Hunter

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.


maybe the person doesn't want to comment you,because the site is to comment on the article-or maybe the person commented only once and you got it all wrong getting up in all people's faces-who knows and who cares.


So I guess Elizabeth could easily win these cases. The first one is proven by the DNA test on the baby and the marriage license with no divorce. The second by John's statements and the existence of the child, too.


Again, my name is Carolee. (The fact you hide behind a different name each time you post is revealing about you.) You asked me questions and I answered them. I asked you questions and you attack me. Why won't you answer my questions? They aren't difficult, especially since you claim to be Hunter's friend and know all the details. They are two simple questions in response to your comments:
1. What mean things has Elizabeth said?
2. How is it un-Christian for her to not forgive someone who hasn't apologized and asked for her forgiveness?


John should just pay child support,tell the truth,and move on!


Who is this 7:23,7:24 person? Ms.know it all? Why is she demanding,picking fights,and so strong willed in her opinion? Guess she has no life.Most people write a comment and get on with their life.


Elizabeth is the same as Rielle when it comes to money.Elizabeth is making money capitalizing on the affair in a book-sick! Rielle expects too much in child support-wrong. Elizabeth should not have wriiten a book and Rielle should not get that much child support.


Vickie, What is alienation of affection that she can sue for?


P.S. Still waiting for you to respond to these questions . . . What mean things has Elizabeth said? How is it un-Christian for her to not forgive someone who hasn't apologized and asked for her forgiveness?


I don't claim Elizabeth's book is the truth but other independent sources have reported confirmation of the first meeting. Hunter herself told a Newsweek reporter some of it. You are claiming it isn't the truth. If you know that for a fact, then which parts aren't true? Were you there? Or do you say Rielle told you? If the latter, your statements are not necessarily more accurate than Elizabeth's account. Elizabeth had the contract to write the book before the mess blew up. The publisher said she considered not writing it but ultimately decided to write about the other parts of her life. She only put in the limited comments about the affair because she knew she would be crucified by the press if the wrote the book but never mentioned the affair. If you read it carefully, you'll see she discuss it from the point of view of its impact on her.


John should support his child for a reasonable and fair amount of money-it's his daughter!

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.
