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.

Jeez, were they planning a honeymoon on the life insurance? And the wifey still standing by him, huh? Sounds like ID TEN T trouble to me!

Part One
Trimming Excess Fat: Trim roast of excess fat, but not the thin layer of fat the butcher leaves on the roast to protect and baste it while it cooks. Excess fat means any fat more than one (1) inch thick. The fat provides the flavor and what you are paying for with prime rib, so leave it on.

Room Temperature: To cook evenly, the roast must not be cold - let it stand at room temperature, loosely covered, for about 2 hours. (If you don't let the roast come to room temperature, if will take longer to cook your roast. Your roast won't cook evenly, and you'll end up with well-done slices on the end and raw meat in the center.)

Previously Frozen: If your rib roast is frozen, let it thaw completely in the refrigerator. Remove the roast from the refrigerator about 2 hours before cooking.

Tying Up Prime Rib: It is important to tie the prime rib before roasting. If left untied, the outer layer of meat will pull away from the rib-eye muscle and overcook. To prevent this problem, tie the roast a both ends, running the twine parallel to the bone. Most butchers will tie your rib roast for you.

I think TMZ should check the Dave Matthews Band's calendar, because John Edwards seems like the kind of guy who would push his wife down the stairs if she hangs on too long.

Part Two
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

Pat the rib roast dry with paper towels or napkins. Smear the cut ends only of the roast with the butter.

Place the roast (ribs down or fat side up) in a heavy stainless-steel or other metal pan. NOTE: Select a roasting pan that has sides at least 3-inches deep. (I do not recommend using a nonstick pans, as these pans yield fewer of the cooked-on bits that make the tasty juice.) The rib bones are a natural rack; you won’t need a metal one

The best incident w/ Bill Clinton. Monica Lewinski was so hot for him, she hot dipped 2 cigars in her "humidor" between her legs, while Yassir Arafat was waiting in the Rose Garden. After Clintons press speech a short while later, Clinton & Arafat smoked them. Bet they tasted good.

Hey! Do ya ever think about improving your grammar? Your sentence makes me re-read it to be sure I'm understanding correctly what you're trying to say.

What a heartless skank. Having an affair and being married is bad enough, but man doing it while your spouse is seriously ill is downright cold. Skank.

I have read Elizabeth Edwards'book, it is wonderfully written, therefore I suspect not many people will read it as it is superior to what most people can understand. Elizabeth did the right thing by not leaving her husband. It is heartbreaking to read about how she worries about her young children, what will happen to them when she is gone forever. I certainly hope and pray John Edwards does NOT marry that Rielle (is she serious, what kind of a name is that), I wouln't even let her babysit for my cats. She trapped him with this pregnancy, but that moron should have used a condom. Very sad story indeed.

I'm still so curious as to how she got pregnant 'accidentally' at 43 or 44. Surely this was planned on her part. Most women aren't able to get pregnant that easily at that age. I think it was a set-up. She saw dollar signs.

If these politicians will lie and cheat the one they are suppose to love and cherish, what will they do for our country.

the truth hurts huh    

2. This guy's a narcissist.
Glad he never made it to the presidency.
Too bad they didn't weed out Clinton before He did His damage.

Yeah - thank goodness this guy didn't make it to the Presidency. He wasn't strong enough for the job anyway. And yeah - Clinton showed poor judgment in his personal choices, but made GOOD choices on policy and he did NO DAMAGE to any of US, dumbarse .... he left us with a surplus in the budget (that Bush & Cheney squandered away - along with thousands of lives for a falsified war) - and nearly EVERYONE was BETTER OFF during the Clinton presidency. So be honest about the facts - instead of just smearing someone. You show your ignorance.

(transcripts of tape recording)

"Don't cry, she's gonna die soon, i promise, then we can get married.
Ok OK we won't do it, but can we just snuggle. ooh baby, noo can i just stick the head in? ohhhh baby. Elizabeth, i mean Reille...I said don't tough the hair!
Oops look at the time, gotta go, mind if I shower, hey cute kid.

Rielle Hunter is to blame as well. She's clearly devoid of a moral compass. What kind of woman (Hunter) does this to another woman dying of cancer? At least John seems remorseful and is trying to work out things with Elizabeth. And, at least, he's done a lot for impoverished families through his career. What has Hunter done for humanity, other than destroy a family?
