Elizabeth Edwards' reaction to Rielle Hunter's interview with GQ

The April 2010 issue of GQ Magazine features a spread of photos and an interview with politician John Edwards' mistress Rielle Hunter. The mother of Edwards 2 year-old daughter Quinn discussed their 'unconditional love' for each other, his initial denial of paternity, and why it took so long for her to share her side of the story:

I feel comfortable talking now, because Johnny went public and made a statement admitting paternity. I didn't feel like I could ever speak until he did that. Because had I spoken, I would have emasculated him. And I could not emasculate him. Also, it is not my desire to teach my daughter that when Mommy's upset with Daddy, you take matters into your own hands and fix Daddy's mistakes. Which I view as one of the biggest problems in all female-and-male relationships.

Elizabeth Edwards didn't have much to say about her estranged husband's mistress speaking out in GQ, except that she was 'disgusted'. She is determined to move on and put that part of her life behind her. Elizabeth developed a passion for painting, and is also currently working on an additional chapter for the paperback release of her book Resilience. Nancy Anania, her sister, told People Magazine that Elizabeth "seems to be happy, and at peace."

Although Hunter makes it sound as if her and 'Johnny' still love each other very much, a friend of John's ensures the only reason they still keep in touch is so he can see his daughter Quinn. Everyone seems to be moving on and trying to rebuild their lives - except for Hunter.  It might be time for her to let go of that "total fantasy."

    At some point, I felt for Elizabeth. Then to learn that she was willing to use her cancer status and the death of her son to get votes absolutely sickened me. As for the Mistress and her Husband...all are simply sick filthy people!
