Friends and family haven't even had time to wrap their heads around the passing of Elizabeth Edwards, but Rielle Hunter seems to be treating the news as if an obstacle was just overcome. Now that the wife is out of the picture, she and her "soul mate" John can get married and live happily ever after. Disgusting.
A source told RadarOnline that Rielle has been keeping a close eye on Elizabeth's health:
Rielle has been very patient through all of this. She still believes that John is her soul mate, and she thinks that they're going to get married.
Patient? Yeah, she's a freakin' saint.
While Elizabeth was battling the cancer that took her life, Rielle and John had an affair that shocked the country and resulted in a daughter. Cheating on your wife while she's battling a terminal disease is about as low as you can go. Not to mention, Rielle milked it for all that it's worth, scantily posing in GQ magazine and enjoying her 15 minutes of fame. But Elizabeth took the high road, opting out of commenting on the mistress, affair, or her cheating husband. At the end, she and John were legally separated, but had not yet finished the one-year trial separation that's mandatory for a divorce in North Carolina.
If John had any decency at all, he'd wait a respected amount of time before even appearing in public with homewrecker Rielle. Regardless of the relationship he had with his wife at the end, he still has children who just lost their mother. They should be the focus right now, not the fact that he's now a single widowed man and can bed anyone he pleases.
As for Rielle, well, I think she's proven over and over again that she has a heart of stone.
What do you think about Rielle Hunter closing in on John for marriage so quickly after Elizabeth's death?
