This week saw the passing of Elizabeth Edwards who sadly passed away after a long battle with cancer. The family is now in mourning. The children lost a mother and John Edwards lost a wife – albeit an estranged one. But does that open the door for John Edwards to finally, publically embrace his baby mamma and one time mistress Rielle Hunter? And are they even still together?
Just last month Rielle Hunter’s “spokesperson” said that “she and her daughter, Quinn, see Mr. Edwards regularly.” And friends of John Edwards stated earlier in the year to People that John Edwards only sees Rielle Hunter “as part of the logistics of visiting their daughter.”
But is there more to their relationship these days that simple drop off and pick ups?
“I know he loves me,” Hunter told GQ in her exclusive interview with the magazine. “I have never had any doubt at all about that. We love each other very much. And that hasn’t changed, and I believe that will be till death do us part. The love doesn’t go away. It’s unconditional.”
And although the two used to fantasize about their wedding, Rielle said they haven’t “to date” discussed wedding plans. Their main focus has been their daughter and John Edwards has committed to help raise her.
But if they do come back together or if they’ve already been seeing each other, hopefully they will respect Elizabeth’s memory and those feelings of John Edwards and Elizabeth Edwards children.
