John Edwards man’s up….it’s his kid…He’s left his wife…..

In a statement timed to preempt a new book by a former aide, John Edwards admitted paternity of a daughter with former mistress Rielle Hunter, despite his previous denials.

“I am Quinn’s father. I will do everything in my power to provide her with the love and support she deserves. I have been able to spend time with her during the past year and trust that future efforts to show her the love and affection she deserves can be done privately and in peace.”

“It was wrong for me ever to deny she was my daughter and hopefully one day, when she understands, she will forgive me. I have been providing financial support for Quinn and have reached an agreement with her mother to continue providing support in the future.”

“To all those I have disappointed and hurt, these words will never be enough, but I am truly sorry.”

Also……

Elizabeth Edwards, whose cancer returned in an incurable form in March 2007, has stood by her husband, saying it does not matter to her whether her husband fathered a child with Hunter.

“That would be a part of John’s life, but not a part of mine,” she said. The couple renewed their wedding vows in July of 2007 to celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary.

But NBC reported that friends of the family say Edwards and his wife have separated.

The guy was always too slick for me…….

My heart goes out Elizabeth Edwards…..who isn’t an angel…but doesn’t deserve this…..neither does his grown kids…

Give Elizabeth Edwards a break……….Her husband hasn’t…..

In the book just out “Game Change” by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin one gets a completely candid look a Elizabeth Edwards…..and she’s no angel or saint….the wife of John Edwards had to endure this……

During the campaign and its aftermath, Edwards learned that she has incurable cancer, while confronting the reality of an unfaithful and lying husband, a broken marriage, and a child borne by her husband’s mistress. The string of psychological blows was so enormous it wasn’t until just recently that Edwards could finally absorb and accept them all, according to these friends.

As is the case in historical books on popular figures…….the truth is often very different from the media pictures…(we just learned that about Hillary Clinton, also)

The shattered image of Elizabeth Edwards is one of the most revelatory parts of “Game Change,” and the passages are among the most difficult to read: Seething through the telephone as she tells a long-time aide he’s dead to her; haranguing her husband in cars, hotel rooms, and in an airport parking lot where, incoherent and inconsolable, she tears open her blouse to expose the effects of her cancer and screams, “Look at me!”

I feel for the women….trying to defend her political husband, while dealing with her disease and having to hear all those lies from him and trying to smile in public…..

Who wouldn’t be a little lot pissed off, and defensive…..

Give the lady a break…will ya?????

Finally!…….Elizabeth Edwards may file for a Divorce!

Listen…the story is from the National Enquirer right now…so we have to wait…but if it proves true, its about time…

Guys cheat on their wives…a lot of politicians do…guys have babies with other women…a lot of politicians do…but most of the ones that stay married…fess up to their wives…and spend their time in the dog house…and are truly sorry for their ‘Johnson’ problems…..one get the impression that that is not the case here in the fact that Edwards denied , vehemently that he was a party to this….

Add to this the fact that his wife stood by him believing his story, while being involved a fight for her life against cancer……

The guy is just too slick for me……and she needs to find someone else to be her partner…….
