It seemed like only yesterday Edwards admitted he was cheating on his cancer-stricken wife -- right, it was -- and his fee for speaking engagements is already going sky high.
Edwards is scheduled to speak at the University of Illinois' Urbana campus in mid-October. According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Edwards will rake in $65,000 for the chat. But the paper reports Edwards' agent told a University official Edwards wants to book more engagements and charge more than the pre-Beverly Hilton rate.
In 2006, Edwards was paid a measly $55,000 to speak at UC Davis ... on poverty.
