Just as it seemed like Elizabeth Edwards was making peace with John and his mistress, it appears that the ugly details about John’s affair are about to emerge. Game Change, a book documenting the 2008 presidential campaign, depicts John as an egomaniac, Elizabeth as relentlessly condescending and Rielle as … well a home-wrecker who tells people she’s a “witch.”
That’s right, according to the book, Rielle actually told people that she was a “witch.” I can’t quite determine whether she meant that literally or not, but I wouldn’t be surprised either way.
Pretty much everybody comes off looking pretty pathetic but according to the Enquirer, Elizabeth’s image takes the worst hit from the new book.
According to Game Change, Elizabeth was “an abusive, intrusive, paranoid condescending crazy woman.”
When she found out about the affair, the book recounts that “Elizabeth was sobbing, out of control, incoherent. As their aides tried to avert their eyes, she tore off her blouse exposing herself. ‘Look at ME!’ she wailed at John and then staggered, nearly falling to the ground.”
Writing that book must have been really depressing. On a lighter note, at least Elizabeth seems to be making her peace with John and Rielle — and most importantly 22-month-old Frances Hunter-Edwards.
