There has been a flurry of news over the past couple of days regarding the Edwards family. Elizabeth Edwards is quoted in a book coming out this week talking about her initial reaction to the news that her husband — about to set off on a run for the White House — had an affair.
On her marriage today:
Winfrey: Is it a day by day thing?
Edwards: Neither one of us is out the door so I guess it’s day by day, but maybe it’s month by month.
Winfrey: So you are still living together?
Edwards: Still living together.
Winfrey: Are you still in love with him?
Edwards: You know, that’s a complicated question.
On the former mistress’ baby:
Winfrey: The other woman has a baby.
Edwards: That’s what I understand.
Winfrey: And there is great speculation that your husband John Edwards is the father of that baby.
Edwards: That’s what I understand. I’ve seen a picture of the baby. I have no idea. It doesn’t look like my children but I don’t have any idea.
Winfrey: You must have thought is it or is it not?
