July 3, (THAINDIAN NEWS) Elizabeth Edwards has revealed in a recent interview that leaving her husband former United States senator John Edwards was one of the most ‘terrifying’ decision of her life. While talking to Matt Lauer on NBC’s “Today” show, Elizabeth Edwards further revealed that one of the hardest part of her life now is being described as a cuckolded wife, in her first television interview since the much publicized split from the former North Carolina senator.
The interview which was aired on Wednesday witnessed Elizabeth Edwards go back to memory lane where she recalled that she had ‘married a marvelous man’ but acknowledged that over the years this factor about John Edwards had surely changed. The 60 year old attorney further went on to reveal that although it was indeed very difficult for her to admit her husband’s adultery, she realized that the former U.S. senator was no longer the person that she married. Moreover, in the one on one with NBC’s Matt Lauer, Elizabeth Edwards also talks about the interview that John Edwards’ mistress Rielle Hunter gave to Oprah Winfrey while adding that the interview left her rather surprised. The former Democratic vice-presidential candidate’s estranged wife added that it was hard for her to imagine that how can someone married to her get attracted to Rielle Hunter given the fact that she is so different from her.
Elizabeth Edwards separated from her husband, former North Carolina senator John Edwards in the month of January this year after the senator admitted that he had an illicit affair with former campaign worker Rielle Hunter and had also fathered a child with her.
