Edwards: Secret Wedding, Dave Matthews?

9/20/2009 10:46 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

John EdwardsNo, it's not a storyline on "Guiding Light" (RIP) -- but rather the latest chapter in the John Edwards mistress scandal.

The guy who once claimed he was the father of the child born to Edwards' mistress, Rielle Hunter, is now claiming Edwards is the real daddy (duh!) and that Edwards once promised Hunter he would marry her after his wife died (she's sick with cancer) -- this according to a book proposal obtained by the NY Times.

Andrew Young, Edwards' former aide, claims Edwards told Hunter it would be a rooftop wedding and the Dave Matthews Band would make an appearance, the Times says.

Because it's the dream of every major recording artist to play at the wedding of a disgraced politician to the mistress they had a child out of wedlock with after the politician's first wife dies of cancer.

May Elizabeth Edwards be cured, live to be 110, and marry her Prince Charming...may John Edwards get hair cancer next week,(I KNOW THERE IS NO SUCH THING, I'm a nurse, but we all know HOW MUCH HE LOVES HIS HAIR) and go on to the big cheating grounds in the sky....

As for Rielle??? Well, having that stupid name by choice should be enough to alert us all to the fact that is firing on a single digit IQ...and that is quite a punishment...

WHAT A JERK...WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND...I'm sure his other children are just really thrilled with John right now...he is a true narcissist...and not nearly as good looking as he thinks he is....

My dear american friends, when will you stop acting like you were in the bedroom with the politicians and you know and see everything ? What does John Edwards have to do with President Clinton, this is just an excuse to cast stones at Democrats. Why do you suppose Monica Lewinsky kept that dress with the sperm on it, was it for blackmail or was she paid by some lobby to catch President Clinton ? Just asking. Leave John Edwards alone, after all he doesn't have to keep that promise, I know many men and women who don't respect their word, and they aren't even in politics. Enough of this judging of human beings, only God can judge us when our time comes. P.S. Hey Republicans, you forgot to mention the Kennedy brothers, Ha ! Ha ! You are the laughing stock of the world. Queen Victoria would be so proud of you.

"Republican are hypocrits" You are truly stupid, and you proved that first of all by not being able to spell HYPOCRITES, can you even spell your own name or does your Mom have to write it for you???...NUMBER TWO: This issue has NOTHING TO DO WITH POLITICAL PARTY AFFILIATION....it has to do with common human decency and the fact that I think all of us feel so very bad for Elizabeth Edwards...a liar is a liar, a cheater is a cheater, and it doesn't matter if they ride the political wave as an elephant or a donkey....please, do us all a favor and NEVER RUN FOR OFFICE...I prefer that my representatives be able to spell their own names...

Re:6

He's just doing what he saw Clinton do? What? You're kidding, right? That would be like implying that no one knew that one cheating on their spouse is wrong. What Clinton did was wrong, and what Edwards did was wrong. Plain and simple.

Face it people, there are a lot of people that cheat. Politicians, both Republican & Democrat, celebrities, teachers, doctors, plumbers... you get the point. Some do, some of them dont.

It's funny, JFK managed to be remembered for all the good he did, instead of his infidelity. Is that because he was assasinated? I think it's sad, because it shouldnt take Clinton to be martyred to make people overlook that situation that should have been only between him and his wife, and make them focus on all the good he did do for the country... remember the country's debt prior to 1992 and the surplus we had by 1999?

I'm in agreement... This isn't a Republican or Democratic issue... it is a Social problem.

People are human and make mistakes... but nowadays it just seems like everyone is out for themselves...and if anyone gets in their way... Watch out!

Does anyone have a conscience anymore? Morals? Honesty? Dependability? Character?

It doesn't seem like it.

Somebody , shoot it! Quick!    

#11, Deeksar, you are right about Elizabeth should leave him. IF SHE were NOT DYING, maybe she would.
Word is that because she is DYING,Stage 4 BC and there is nothing else that can be done,she does not want their two preteen/teen kids to go thorugh that major crisis and then deal with her death,anyday now or week or month, maybe a year from now as well.


I LOVELOVE Dave Mathews Band,so I am disgusted Edwards the
bas tard had the nerve to put their name in his mess.
