In a move wives everywhere will surely laud, Elizabeth Edwards has supposedly kicked her cheating husband, former Senator John Edwards, to the curb.
Elizabeth stood by him even after news of his affair (and alleged love child) with weird filmmaker mistress Rielle Hunter shocked the world this summer.
The cancer-stricken health care advocate and mother of two recently showed up for a presentation at George Washington University – without her husband or her wedding ring in sight. Could her husband of 29 years be history?
HAPPIER TIMES: Elizabeth Edwards and John Edwards share a lighter moment in pre-Rielle Hunter times. Or at least pre-she-knew-about-Rielle Hunter times.
A source tells the New York Post that John Edwards is no longer living with Elizabeth and that the couple has separated. Reps for Elizabeth had no comment.
News of Edwards’ affair with Rielle Hunter first broke late last year, but he denied it. Things blew over until he was caught visiting Hunter and her baby – the paternity of which remains highly questionable – in a Beverly Hills hotel.
His political career is toast regardless, but if it turns out he did knock up Rielle, that might just top Bristol Palin as the top political pregnancy story of ’08.
