John Edwards 'Sad' about Separation with Wife

1/27/2010 8:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

John edwards separated from his wife ElizabethJohn Edwards has confirmed ... he's separated from his wife, Elizabeth Edwards, calling it an "extraordinarily sad moment."

News of the separation comes only one week after John admitted to fathering a child with his mistress, Reille Hunter, back in 2007 ... around the same time Elizabeth was diagnosed with breast cancer.

John and Elizabeth have been married since 1977.

Elizabeth Edwards needs to divorce him and get her share of their wealth allocated to and locked-up in its rightful place, i.e. her three living children before his ugly whore makes claim on behalf of that innocent but terribly unattractive child.

What this narcissist has put Elizabeth Edwards through is unconscionable and the horrible things that are now coming out about him reveal such an evil and psychopathic mind. John Edwards may go down in history (along with Nixon) as one of the most despicable politicians in history. If it were not for him, Senator Clinton (now Secretary of State Clinton) would likely be the first female President of the United States of America today.

With the separation now taking place, I hope Elizabeth Edwards defies historical medical odds and becomes a walking miracle so she can complete the rearing of her two youngest children as she is truly a devoted and nurturing mother.

John Edwards, you're an ugly whore just like the nasty one you bedded for a couple of years while your wife was enduring the mental and physical anguish of experiencing cancer. Neither you or that ugly whore have a moral compass, dignity, or self-integrity. Both creeps....

As this story gets put to rest, may God Bless the President of the United States of America, our exquisite Country, and its people with the love, wisdom, intelligence, and fortitude to see our path clear in the weeks, months, and years ahead.

WHEN IT FIRST HAPPENED AND CAME OUT IN THE NEWS AND HE DENIED IT ALL I WOULD HAVE THROWN ALL OF HIS CLOTHES OUT ON THE LAWN, AND CHANGED THE LOCKS AND FILED FOR DIVORCE THEN. THAT POOR WOMAN SO SICK WITH CANCER AND HE CANNOT KEEP HIS PANTS ZIPPED. A FIRST CLASS LYING AHOLE.

I thought George Bush was my last straw with politics but this one (that I had so much hope for) WAS the last straw. I really thought he was one of the good guys. But the sad truth is there are NO GOOD guys in politics. The whole bullsh#t of YOU HAVE TO VOTE is just that, BULLSH#T!!!!!!!!!! THEY pick them from the start to run! Can you imagine HOW many SUPER intelligent people are out there that COULD do the job but will NEVER NEVER be in politics because they do not have the right connections, or family ties or MONEY to do so? We are SCREWED. BOTH sides. THIS is what they give us!!!! Think of ALL the people in this country who are sitting there with all the wisdom and smarts that could bring us forward and the likes of him and Palin and Cheney and Pelosi and ALL the other SICK individuals are what they hand up to us to vote for! What a sad sad shame. WHEN are we going to wise up. Just look at the Presidents speech tonight. Like a FKN bunch of OLD SPOILED JACKASSES! Oh, I will cross my arms and NEVER applaud for HIM! And yes, in Bushes first year I felt the same. What a bunch of pure sh#tholes.

It's funny but I remember this like it was yesterday. During the campaign, although I didn't really know 'squat' about this guy at the time, I recall saying to my husband, "You know, he just looks TOO perfect. Too squeeky-clean 'good-boyish'. There's something wrong with this picture. I bet he's got a 'cemetary', not just a few bones in HIS closet. I wonder how thoroughly they have checked into THIS one's background"?? We had a good chuckle about it. I was rooting for my girl Hillary then she got booted out in Iowa so I pledged my allegiance so to speak to Barack.

And looky-looky at 'the bone'(hehe) this guy was hiding!! They don't MAKE a closet BIG ENOUGH!!

It sure all 'comes around' doesn't it? KARMA! Gotta love it! I haven't stopped laughing since this scandal broke! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!

Elizabeth is my hero! SHE should run for president next term. I think I just might have to dump Hillary.

"ELIZABETH IN '10"!!

I've got to go start working on my campaign signs now folks(wink-wink)!!

The ungrateful, selfish, mid-life crisis disgusting excuse for a human being, he is not even good-looking like people tried to say during his thank God failed campaign. I pray Elizabeth lives a long time and enjoys her beautiful children and is able to see her grandchildren someday, she is a class act.

While I in no way condone John Edwards behavior, Elizabeth bears her own responsibility as well...
She KNEW he was cheating on her, yet she stayed...
She KNEW the child was his, yet she stayed...
She KNEW he was ILLEGALLY using campaign contributions to support "Baby Mama", yet she stayed...
That being said, it's a bit late to be crying "foul"...

Elizabeth is not the first, or only woman who has had unfortunate issues arise while battling cancer...She should be thanking God that she has a very nice home, food on the table, butt-loads of money in the bank, and access to health care that neither you or I could possibly dream of affording...
While I empathize with her plight, she made bad choices of her own as well...
NEITHER one of them thought of how badly this will affect their kids...
Elizabeth will be gone from us before long, John will still be running around chasing tail, and the kids will have to face the stark reality that their parents were screwed up campers...That's the really sad part...

Jeannie #26 - As a dog owner and lover I take offense comparing Edwards to a dog.
So does my dog. A dog would NEVER do that. They are loyal, honest, loving and everything
else that is good in the world.
