Enquirer: John Edwards recently tried to have another affair

30th Annual "Outstanding Mother Awards"

On the heels of new revelations about John and Elizabeth Edwards’ marriage from the new book Game Change, the National Enquirer has another scoop: John is still a f-cking douchebag. Shocking! Considering the Enquirer broke the story about John’s affair with Rielle Hunter, and the subsequent love child Frances, I’m totally believing this story. Also, it seems the Enquirer got (paid) for an exclusive interview with this bartender woman who claims that John Edwards hit on her multiple times. Beware, this story is really sleazy:

ENQUIRER WORLD EXCLUSIVE: Cheating killed his political career, destroyed his reputation and left his marriage hanging by a thread – but John Edwards has done IT again! The ENQUIRER has learned exclusively that the philandering ex-senator embarked on a “sex-and-booze bender” after what appeared to be a marriage-ending blowout fight with his cancer-stricken wife Elizabeth.

While still publicly not admitting paternity of his love child – who turns 2 in February – the disgraced former presidential candidate shocked eyewitnesses by recently spending several consecutive nights trawling bars in search of women.

Before booting her shameless husband from their home after Christmas, Elizabeth screamed at John that she was “finally signing” the divorce papers she had her lawyers draw up last year during a previous battle over his relationship with Rielle Hunter, the mother of his baby.

Edwards fled to the couple’s vacation home on Figure Eight Island near Wilmington, N.C. – and attempted to bed a female bartender as well as bar patrons young enough to be his daughter, say shocked witnesses.

In a bombshell exclusive interview with The ENQUIRER, bartender Stephanie Breshears revealed that Edwards repeatedly tried to get her to go back to his house for sex. The 34-year-old divorced mother-of-two said Edwards hit on her “for four consecutive nights” at the local Kornerstone Bistro, where she works.

“I think he’s scum,” Stephanie told The ENQUIRER. “He was definitely looking to pick up women when he came in here – and he wanted me to go back to his house.”

Stephanie revealed she first met Edwards last August when he arrived at the Kornerstone, five miles from his vacation home, with wife Elizabeth and the couple’s 27-year-old daughter Cate.

“But that night was very busy, and I didn’t have a lot of time to socialize,” said the pretty bartender. “I didn’t see any of them again until John Edwards came in on Dec. 30 – the first of four consecutive nights.

“He said he’d been thinking about me since he and his wife were in last summer. He said I had run through his mind ‘time and time’ again. He said I was ‘attractive.’

“He asked what I was doing after work and I told him I had plans with friends. But he told me he was staying on Figure Eight Island, and that I should join him.”

Incredibly, just minutes after giving Stephanie his phone number, Edwards started flirting with another woman – right in front of Stephanie.

“He told her he was ‘separated, soon to be divorced,’” the sexy bartender divulged.

It sounds believable, right? I think this happened. Although, it’s not really a “cheating scandal” since they didn’t sleep together. Or is it? Is propositioning a woman multiple times and asking her to come over to his house considered cheating? Yes. So, in that case it is a “cheating scandal” although this one lacks A) penetration and B) a love child. Still douchey, though. Oh, and I really wonder who was more upset by this – John’s wife or his mistress Rielle?

    Shocking!!!*rolling eyes*, NOT! Is he addicted to sex too, like Tiger. Men like this need to have their penises snapped.

  2. snowball says:

    What a pig. I hope Elizabeth does sign those papers – what wife, however nutty she may be – should stand for having a husband who can’t keep it in his pants? Elin, I’m looking at you too, honey.

    He’s such a smarmy creep.

  3. Green Is Good says:

    I hope the pussay was worth flushing his career, family, life, respect, etc. down the toilet.

    This guy is should get a bachelor pad with Dave Letterman and Jude law. Edit: And Tiger Woods.

  4. Sudini says:

    Another fool who deserves to be neutered asap.

  5. Firestarter says:

    OH THAT CANNOT BE!!!!!!!!!!!

    He is a wonderful man! Devoted husband father and charismatic politician!

    (I made myself laugh on that one)

  6. WTF?!? says:

    Gross. Not at all surprising, but still gross. Mel hit it on the head.

  7. Relli says:

    I met John at a book signing a few years ago exactly a year before the mistress story. I was however completely dismayed at his lack of personality and his general disinterest in what was going on around him. At that point I realized his political career was someone else’s making, merely a pretty face to carry the campaign. And all I could think about was how smart Elizabeth must be, because this man clearly had no brain

  8. CandyKay says:

    All his women-on-the-side look basically the same – blonde, skinny, tacky. He definitely has a type.

  9. Cinderella says:

    Yuck. Just yuck.

    Maybe he knows he may be headed to prison. What a disgusting creature.

  10. BReed says:

    One word for him: disgusting.

  11. JazzJazz says:

    I hope she is divorcing him. Therefore, she would get plenty of his money and protect her children’s inheritance.

  12. Linda says:

    Sooner or later people will stop funding these creeps and then we’ll get somewhere.

  13. Kiki says:

    He even looks like a cheater. Slick Willy with not a hair out of place and a tan. Give me a break.

  14. Tazina says:

    There’s a lot more that are doing stuff like this and managing to keep it under wraps. The only time they are repentant is when they get caught. Edwards is one horny dude.

  15. Beck says:

    The guy should have just hired an escort.

  16. annie says:

    He probably has been doing this the entire marriage, much like Mel and Slick Willy and I’m sure his wife has always known.

  17. Tia C says:

    He may be a sleaze, but I can’t help but wonder what is it about his marriage that makes him WANT to stray like this? In Tiger Woods’ case, I don’t see how he had any excuse, but in John Edwards’ case, I kinda do… just sayin’. Either way, he’s got to be a supremely dumb guy, like others here said.

  18. annie says:

    #18, alot of times it comes down to character, there are hungry men and there are bad men.

  19. Tami says:

    Why is this news??? Once a cheater, always a cheater…get that thru your heads, people!

  20. Judy says:

    Hey, John ~ I want the money back I contributed to your campaign, err, I mean the money I contributed so you could pay Rielle a ridiculous salary. I can’t stand to even look at this LOSER anymore.

  21. Kathie says:

    Okay I knew this would get down to questions about Elizabeth using quotes from that book that came out so..according to the campaign staff Elizabeth Edwards, Mother of 3 (2 really small) children survivor of the loss of her oldest child, terminally ill, exhausted and dealing with the pressure of a National campaign went bats**t crazy when she discovered that her husband was cheating and furthermore had impregnated his lover? Is that what they say..NO WAY ! Of course she was calm and rational..NOT! nor would I have been..I hate stupid people but more than stupid people I hate people who try to cover their own bad behavior by throwing anyone close to them under the bus. I am sure all of them knew for quite some time what was going on and when asked at the time why they kept quiet said “oh we were going to rat him out just any minute..we sure were” I call bulls**t on that and also these so called “revelations” these staffers would like to work on another campaign sooner or later and 2012 is coming up! That goes for all the people included in the book..the only people who didn’t have comment were the staff on the winning campaign. They can get jobs. John Edwards is a sleaze bag and his wife may rhyme with rich but implying that he had “reason” to cheat is just more blaming the victim.
    Thanks..I feel better now..*climbs down off soap box holding to wall to steady self*

  22. la chica says:

    he prolly hasn’t been laid in a long time.

  23. Orbit says:

    I need to see baby pictures of Frances. If her hair is gelled up in a sweep like a trial lawyer’s, it’s his kid.

  24. lucy2 says:

    LOL @ Orbit

    I don’t care if his wife is the biggest beyotch on the planet – a married man is a married man. If he was unhappy in the marriage to the point of wanting to be with someone else, get a divorce. At least that would be better than sneaking around and doing God knows what. And maybe his wife is a beyotch because she has a d-bag for a husband, who would run around on her after everything they’ve been through. I know that would make me pretty pissy too.

    He is soooo smarmy.

  25. Jag says:

    I can’t believe I ever liked him.

  26. sondra hassman says:

    I think John Edwards is just a plain BUM an egocentric anr theif- he took bunny mellons money and used it for his own cheap crap and I feel really sorry for his wife and children. I also feel sorry for bunny mellon – what a waste of good money. He should have his head flushed down the toilet.
