NATIONAL ENQUIRER: John Edwards Caught Visiting Mistress (Rielle Hunter) & Secret Love Child … Two Americas … Baby Daddy?


Talk about your Two Americas … or it it two faces John Edwards?


John Edwards – Rielle Hunter

The story comes from The National Enquirer and that does provide some pause. However, even a blind squirrel manages to find an acorn or two every so often. A broken clock does tell the time correct twice a day and as compared to the news stories from the MSM these days … why can’t this be true? We are reminded by The Corner that it was The National Enquirer that broke the Rush Limbaugh/Oxycontin story and most stories in the O.J Simpson case.

Who knew this was the Two Americas that Edwards was talking about?

The National Enquirer is reporting that former Democratic VP Democratic and Barack Obama Veep candidate short lister, John Edwards has been caught visiting his mistress and love child at the Beverly Hilton on Monday night. I guess the Obama VP vetting team missed this one? The Enquirer is reporting that John Edwards met with his mistress, blonde divorcée Rielle Hunter, at the Beverly Hilton.

Rielle had driven to Los Angeles from Santa Barbara with a male friend for the rendezvous with Edwards. The former senator attended a press event Monday afternoon with L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa on the topic of how to combat homelessness.

But a months-long NATIONAL ENQUIRER investigation had yielded information that Rielle and Edwards, 54, had arranged to secretly meet afterward and for the ex-senator to spend some time with both his mistress and the love child who he refuses to publicly acknowledge as his own.

The NATIONAL ENQUIRER broke the story of Edwards’ love child scandal last year, when Rielle was still pregnant and Edwards was still considered a strong candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination.


John & Elizabeth Edwards

It would appear that Pajama Media had gotten wind of this story a while back but held back from running with it. Roger Simon gives some great advice when it comes to politicians. The advice can be used with Edward’s past pontificating and plays as well with a president day Democrat running for office …


So all this was going on as Edward’s wife was battling cancer and standing by her man. Or should we say her“Breck Girl”.

UPDATE I: John Edwards Affair: Interview with David Perel, Editor-in-Chief of the National Enquirer

“Inquiring minds want to know.”

After an hour-long interview with David Perel, Editor-in-Chief of the National Enquirer, we can now say with certainty: it was easy. The steadfast “cone of silence” placed on the story by the Mainstream Media made it easy for anyone willing to do the legwork to grab the story from a decidedly-uninterested “respectable” press.

UPDATE III: National Enquirer Claims Photos of John Edwards and his Love Child Frances Quinn Hunter

      If this is true … GEEZ … how disgusting as his wife is battling cancer.

      However, it would not surprise me from Mr. Two Americas

    2. richard on July 23rd, 2008 7:05 am

      Was she getting $5500 an hour? Perhaps Edwards got the hint from Eliot Spitzer that that is the going rate ….

    3. Susy Q on July 23rd, 2008 8:26 am

      I think if it was true it would be on FOX and CNN.I don’t put much faith in anything the NE writes…..remember the frozen condom story they did in one of the stories on Natalee ? They should go back to their “Grandma Was a Martian” stories…..ahhhh the good ole days…

    4. Susy Q on July 23rd, 2008 8:34 am

      He cheated on Elizabeth with THAT !!!!!! Looks like Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall on a VERY bad day…..LOL…. hmmmmm…maybe more fiber would help….

    5. Miss-Underestimated on July 23rd, 2008 9:00 am

      I don’t think cheaters are into looks so much. If this is true, is Liz gonna stand by her man?

    6. bleachedblack on July 23rd, 2008 5:18 pm

      Dang she looks just like Camilla.

    7. katablog on July 23rd, 2008 9:09 pm

      I believe it’s true mostly because of Edwards actions when caught in the hotel. Yes, this is algore type hypocrisy. Imagine battling cancer and yet still being willing to help your husband on the campaign trail and then he’s busy playing around with another woman.

      It was Edwards that put his poor wife out in front on the campaign, apparently hoping to gain a little sympathy. It was Edwards that played up the “caring husband”. What a piece of dirt.

    8. katablog on July 23rd, 2008 9:10 pm

      Oh and yes, she’s a piece of dirt too because she knew Edwards was married (and supposedly a Christian) and yet she allowed him to play hypocrite. And yeah, she’s UGLY.

    9. BigGuy on July 23rd, 2008 11:27 pm

      I don’t buy this. Only criminal defense attorneys have relationships with people who use aliases. Rielle Hunter and Lisa Druck are such disparate names they portend criminality. Successful lawyers RUN from that and Edwards knows to do so.

    10. richard on July 24th, 2008 7:03 am

      Big Guy (#9) … What about Eliot Spitzer? Don’t politicians (most of whom are lawyers) do stupid things every day?

    11. Media Double Standard, Why are They Ignoring the Edwards “Love Child” Story? | Scared Monkeys on July 24th, 2008 10:54 am

      [...] The John Edwards “Love Child” … “Baby Daddy” story has once again shown the hypocrisy and the double standard of the main stream media. One might ask themselves, where is the coverage? After all, we are talking about a man in John Edwards that was a VP candidate and had John Kerry won the 2004 election would have been a heart beat away from the highest office in the land. Although John Edwards has denied the allegations, since when has that stopped the MSM from digging? Edwards calls it tabloid trash, yet these days how does one tell the difference from the MSM? EDWARDS RESPONDS: ‘I don’t talk about these tabloids. Tabloid trash is full of lies.’ Developing… (Drudge Report) [...]

      She kinda looks like Alice Pearce
      from ‘Bewitched!’

      Yeah….were are all the people who cover Paris and Lindsay ….. where is ET and TMZ….we want DIRT ! ! ! ! ! !

    14. Rob Adcox on July 25th, 2008 10:42 pm

      What ever happened to the good old days when liberals were simply liberals? Now they want to be libertine.

    15. Petes2cents on July 26th, 2008 10:45 pm

      Is John Edward’s private life that important ? Is this story a Republican Smear Campaign ? Politics and the media are are just brutal. Amazingly, as things were going so well for Barack Obama, all of a sudden this story hits the wire. Conspiracy or Fact ?

    16. waltzing matilda on July 27th, 2008 4:16 pm

      This shouldn’t surprise anyone. Edwards has always been a greasy piece of work.
      Chances are pretty good this wasn’t Edwards’ first girlfriend.

    17. DJ on July 27th, 2008 5:27 pm

      Where’s the proof? Where’s the pictures of the two together? Where’s the DNA match?

      You people will never see the daylight and what really needs to change, will you…
