I’ve met John Edwards… it was brief, but he has a firm, moist shake. I’ve never met his cancer-stricken wife, Elizabeth. My friend Lisa had dinner with the battle scarred couple in the mid 90’s, before the death of their 16 year old son, Wade. She said they were a little stiff, perhaps even dull. I’m guessing that what went on behind closed doors was anything but.
He met a girl at a bar, she was a barely known filmmaker who proposed a “working assistant” sugar daddy arrangement. In this arrangement, she would produce some fluff youtube videos chronicling the senators campaign, giving her the perfect excuse for going all around the country with him in very close quarters, “documenting the real side” of the senator… I bet. Amazingly, she received $114,000 from the John Edwards Presidential Campaign, apparently, all for her “website/internet” services. Quite an allowance, eh?
Mr. Edwards came out with a statement today, it was so humble I wanted to leave the tv room to escape the overwhelming sense of embarrassment permeating through the screen. He said that he had become increasingly “narcissistic”, due in part to years of fan-clad campaigning. But the more telling statement came from the newly anointed SugarDaddy wife — Mrs. Edwards herself…
“…John made a terrible mistake in 2006. The fact that it is a mistake that many others have made before him did not make it any easier for me to hear when he told me what he had done. But he did tell me. And we began a long and painful process in 2006, a process oddly made somewhat easier with my diagnosis in March of 2007. This was our private matter, and I frankly wanted it to be private because as painful as it was I did not want to have to play it out on a public stage as well. Because of a recent string of hurtful and absurd lies in a tabloid publication, because of a picture falsely suggesting that John was spending time with a child it wrongly alleged he had fathered outside our marriage, our private matter could no longer be wholly private. The pain of the long journey since 2006 was about to be renewed…”
As for the SugarBaby, Rielle Hunter, she’s claiming that her newly born son is fathered by none other than her $114,000 Sugar Daddy — John Edwards. Perhaps she’s seeking the ultimate long-term sugardaddy arrangement…Child Support!
Is this the ultimate in SugarDaddy blackmail? Sugar Daddies… are you scarred? What do you think?
