Today is choose-your-own-adventure day in John Edwards news. For some strange reason, all kinds of wild, bat-crazy John Edwards rumors are flying at us from all directions — and I don’t know what to make of it. Is it John’s birthday? Anniversary? A slow news day perhaps?
Should you choose to believe them or not, the two latest pieces of John Edwards gossip are worth a read (for a laugh).
First off, the Enquirer is reporting that after only days after being officially separated from his wife Elizabeth, John has proposed to his mistress/baby-mama Rielle Hunter. According to an insider:
“John dropped the proposal bomb on Rielle shortly before he issued his statement [that he was indeed Frances' father].”
Supposedly, John and Elizabeth’s divorce will be final within a year and then John will make everything alright by getting Rielle a big ol’ diamond (so big it’s going to make her puke).
The second piece of gossip is far and away my favorite story that has ever come out of the Edwards affair saga. According to Star Magazine, Rielle was two-timing John Edwards with Jeff Goldblum (or was it the other way around?) at the time she got pregnant. From Star:
“Jeff met Rielle in 2006 at the Playhouse West acting school and repertory theater in North Hollywood, where he teaches.”
Apparently, he feel for her and then, when she got pregnant, thought that he might be Frances’ father! But no, alas, it turned out to be John Edwards.
