Rielle Hunter Affair Devastated Elizabeth Edwards

by at . Comments

Rielle Hunter.

That name alone evoked anger and misery from Elizabeth Edwards until she passed away last week. Surprising? No. But the extent of the toll John Edwards' affair and illegitimate child took on his ailing wife is being revealed for the first time.

Rielle Hunter and Quinn

Interviewer Daphne Barak has kept this information secret until now, as Elizabeth requested. But now, in the wake of Eiizabeth's tragic death last week, she reveals specifically what happened when the scorned wife learned of John's cheating.

In March, Rielle Hunter posed half-dressed, with her baby daughter, in GQ, attacking Elizabeth and sending messages that she and John were still an item.

After years of being lied to, Elizabeth couldn't take it anymore.

“Elizabeth collapsed and had to be hospitalized immediately after that article was published,” Daphne says, adding that she was asked to keep quiet about it.

Elizabeth’s reasons for keeping her collapse from the public were both obvious and more subtle. She wanted to remain a bastion of strength for her children.

Also, there was pride and not wanting to show weakness.

“This isn’t the only time Rielle Hunter’s presence silently hung in the air,” Barak said. “On March 8 when I picked up the telephone to Elizabeth, I told her that I was at the Regency hotel in New York for dinner. But suddenly the line went off."

"I called again, apologizing for us getting cut off, and repeated that I was at the Regency hotel in New York. Bubbly Elizabeth went all of sudden silent.”

“Only minutes later, it hit me - the Regency hotel! For Elizabeth, the Regency Hotel was ‘the crime scene.’ This is where her husband had drinks at the Library (the name of the bar in the Regency) and locked eyes with Rielle Hunter."

John Edwards' affair had begun.

"Then she waited for him outside the hotel at the next light,” she explains of the night Rielle told John he was so hot. “Where everybody’s life changed.”

While it is unfortunate that Elizabeth was battling cancer at the same time the devastating news came out about her unfaithful husband....we don't need to be calling him names and wishing evil on him. We live in a sin-sick world and crap like this happens.
Look at Hollywood! Rarely is anyone there living as they should.
It is not entirely Riele's fault either. Nobody's marriage is for certain these days. I have been married 38 years to the same man however, I take nothing for granted. People make wrong choices when there is alcohol involved, or under stress of many sorts. Get over it people! How long does John have to pay for this? And if he hooks up with the girlfriend after the dust is settled, so be it. Look at what Angelina did to
Brad's marriage and yet, people are accepting of her!~ She is
a big-time home wrecker.

John Edwards is the lowest form of human being that walks the face of the earth. Anyone who could do this to someone battling cancer should rot in hell. Thank God those children had their mother to teach them what a decent human being is. As for ms. Hunter, she is should be made to suffer for what she did to Elizabeth Edwards. Shame her daughter will be raised by someone as low as her. As a breast cancer survivor, John & Ms. Hunter have a big part in the death of Elizabeth. She was a great person and I will pray she rests in peace.

Riele is lower then low. She should keep a low profile!!! People don't want to see her, hear about her----she is despised.
Any self respecting woman would not have allowed this to continue on after SO MANY things. Elizabeth was a gracious, loving woman in her own right, a sick woman, a woman presenting herself to perhaps be a first lady (it was her skunk of a husband the American rejected and lost the election). She passed with everybody's
approval. What a skank Hunter is! Want to make it
worse? Keep fooling with John Edwards. The half naked pictures
were so distasteful and branded herself a whore. She will never live this down.

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.
