At least this Elizabeth didn't shoot her cheating man

Edwards admits fathering child with mistress

So John Edwards is finally admitting what everyone has known all along, that he got his mistress pregnant while his wife was receiving cancer treatment.

I believe Elizabeth Edwards is a great lady. Her first book, Saving Graces, had a tremendous impact on my life. She's courageous, candid and frankly not perfect in her second book, Resilience. I am sorry to hear that, according to MSNBC, "family friends say John and Elizabeth have separated, at least for now."

Not because John Edwards deserves their marriage. I'm not at all sure he does. But I am sure this is not the way the mother of Cate (27), Emma Claire (11), Jack (9) and Wade (forever 16) envisioned her life. I hope Elizabeth and all the children involved -- including toddler Frances, at the center of all this through no fault of her own -- come through this without too much damage.

  1. This was so a "jump or be shoved the hell off the ledge" move, wasn't it? It kills me that I sent money to his campaign and he was making a fool of us all.

    I understand that stuff happens. But really, try not to humiliate your spouse in public with all of it, would ya? And most especially don't do it if you're in the spotlight - and yes, talking to your ass, Tiger. What a mess.

    He has no one to blame for this debacle but his own feckless self.
    And I'm with you on the Elizabeth love. I can't imagine going through what she has with ALL of it.

    I hope whatever lessons they all were to learn from it have been seen and learned. I suspect his are just now beginning.


Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
