Can I admit something? I’m impressed that thus far, John Edwards hasn’t come out with his weepy douche-face on, whining about Elizabeth’s passing. I thought he would do that right away – take a stroll in front of the cameras, cry a little for his public. The fact that he hasn’t makes me think that maybe a small part of him “gets it” you know? Gets that we don’t want to see his dumbass, gets that a lot of people still harbor nasty feelings towards him about the whole Rielle Hunter situation. Speaking of Rielle, Radar reports that she’s all excited now that Elizabeth is dead. Sorry, I should have warned you that a dry heave was coming. Yes, Rielle thinks that because Elizabeth has finally passed away, now she and “Johnny” are going to get hitched. She even thinks people should be impressed by her patience!
As friends and family mourn the passing of Elizabeth Edwards, the mistress of her estranged husband John Edwards continues to hold out hope that she and the former candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination can finally be together.
A source close to the mistress Rielle Hunter and to the Edwards family exclusively told RadarOnline.com: “Rielle has been very patient through all of this. She still believes that John is her soul mate, and she thinks that they’re going to get married.”
That’s a sentiment that’s sure to anger many who loved Elizabeth and applauded her courage while dealing with a husband who cheated on her as she battled cancer. On Tuesday, Elizabeth, 61, passed away after a six-year struggle with cancer. She was surrounded by friends and family who rushed to her side after the shocking announcement that her doctors believed any further medical treatment would be futile.
The source revealed that Hunter has been closely watching Elizabeth’s situation.
“She doesn’t care about anyone but herself. She’s been selfish and horrible this whole time, no matter what else has been said about her,” the source said.
Hunter currently lives in a home paid for by John Edwards. She lives there with their young daughter Quinn, the child John originally denied was his, even when the National Enquirer busted him visiting Rielle and Quinn in a Beverly Hills hotel.
As for how Rielle will respond publicly to the news that Elizabeth has passed away, the source said they doubted what she said would be heartfelt.
“She will say nice things about Elizabeth, but only if it makes her look good,” the source added.
Yeah, I totally don’t doubt the validity of this story. If I learned anything from watching Rielle in that Oprah interview, it’s that she’s as delusional and vapid as they come. It wouldn’t surprise me at all to learn that she’s making Elizabeth’s death all about RIELLE. My guess is that as soon as Elizabeth’s death was announced, Rielle was on the phone to Johnny to offer her “sympathy” plus a little reminder that now they could get married.
