SMH…you get what you deserve Johnny Boy:
Elizabeth Edwards cut her louse of a spouse out of her will – less than a week before she died. The wronged wife of former presidential candidate John Edwards, who died last month after a courageous battle with breast cancer, left everything in her sole possession to their three children.
“All of my furniture, furnishings, household goods, jewelry, china, silverware and personal effects and any automobiles owned by me at the time of my death I give and bequeath to my children,” the will says. Edwards’ eldest daughter Cate, a lawyer, was named as the executor of the will, according to Inside Edition, which obtained a copy.
John Edwards was not mentioned even once in will – though his work as a trial lawyer generated the family’s fortune. His net worth through courtroom work has been pegged at more than $25 million. Edwards, who was 61, signed the document on Dec. 1 – six days before she passed at her home in Chapel Hill, N.C.
The cause of death was metastatic breast cancer. Edwards was married for 33 years to former North Carolina Democratic Sen. John Edwards, who twice ran for President and cheated on her even after she was diagnosed with terminal cancer.
They were separated, but the cad was by his wife’s side at the end. The Edwards’ had four children. Their eldest son, Wade, was killed in a car crash in 1996 when he was 16. Edwards was her husband’s top adviser during his 2004 run for the Democratic nomination and during his stint as John Kerry’s running mate. A day after the election loss, she was diagnosed with breast cancer.
The cancer retreated after surgery and chemotherapy and John Edwards decided to run again in 2008. Meanwhile, she wrote a best seller, “Saving Graces,” about her illness and losing Wade. When the cancer roared back in an incurable form in 2007, both John and Elizabeth vowed to continue campaigning. But by then, John Edwards was already carrying on a torrid affair with New Yorker Rielle Hunter.
John Edwards was finally exposed as a cheat by the National Enquirer. His wife stuck by him despite his lies and denials until he accepted paternity of Hunter’s baby daughter. That, she could not abide.
