Forget William and Kate. Get ready for a real American royal white trash wedding.
According to The National Enquirer, who has been a major player in the story, John Edwards has asked his long-time mistress and baby mama Lisa Jo Rielle Jaya James Druck Hunter to marry him.
Huffington Post : The Hollywood Gossip has a screenshot of the latest issue of the Enquirer, the publication that broke the original story about Edwards’s liaison with Hunter, his campaign videographer, and predicts that the two might tie the knot this summer, if at all.
Sound familiar? That’s because this is the second time The National Enquirer has ran a story like this. Last year, they announced that the couple were getting married, and that they had a $3.5 million dollar luxury beachfront home to live in. And don’t forget the time they were getting married and Dave Matthews was going to play at their reception. Promises which Edwards allegedly made to Hunter while his longtime wife Elizabeth was dying of cancer. Elizabeth, who died only last month, left her husband houseboy out of her will.
If the rumor is true, John Boy is wasting no time getting back in the saddle again. And we’ve all seen how well that played out for him in politics.
We can only hope that the news is true that ex-Presidential candidate and Vice President nominee John Edwards asked Rielle Hunter for her hand in marriage. He’s got to do it for the kid. Because, really, what would little Frances Quinn “My Mommy’s Crazy” Hunter be without her father’s shining example of how to be a model American?
