John Edwards' legal troubles might be over but the former U.S. senator and ex-presidential candidate's tumultuous personal life is about to be put through the wringer again, courtesy of ex-mistress Rielle Hunter's tell-all book to be released next week.
Rielle Hunter's memoir What Really Happened: John Edwards, Our Daughter and Me, is set to be published June 26. The memoir will detail how Hunter allegedly wasn't the only mistress John Edwards had during his marriage to Elizabeth Edwards, who died of breast cancer in late 2010.
In the book, Rielle Hunter says Elizabeth Edwards may have had a cheery public persona, but she was actually a witch on wheels, whose bossy attitude led John Edwards to stray.
Hunter said that she and John Edwards also spoke about the possibility of Edwards being sent to prison if found guilty of violating campaign finance laws.
Hunter said she would relocate along with daughter Quinn, who was fathered by Edwards, to Virginia, if Edwards was sent to a state prison.
Federal jurors found Edwards not guilty last month on one count and the government decided earlier this month not to pursue a retrial on the other five charges.
After the jury's verdict was announced, Edwards choked up speaking of his precious Quinn, who I love more than any of you could ever imagine. And I am so close to and so, so grateful for. So grateful for Quinn.
In her book, Rielle Hunter called John Edwards a great dad to [Quinn] when he is with her, the Associated Press reported.
Edwards' affair with Rielle Hunter and the child they had together sent shock waves throughout the country.
Hunter claimed Edwards lied about how many mistresses he had, actually inflating the figure to her in hopes that she wouldn't become attached to him, according to ABC, which plans to air an interview with her on Friday.
Johnny went on to tell me that the three women he had told me about the first night I had met him were, in fact, not real and that he had made them up ... My mind was racing ... He had told me detail upon detail. I remembered the ups and downs of emotion I had felt the night he went to Chicago to break off his relationship there, she wrote. My reality in our relationship had been ripped out from under me.
It's unclear what the status is of the relationship between Rielle Hunter and John Edwards.
I really have no idea what will happen with us. The jury is still out. But I can honestly say that the ending is of no concern to me anymore. The love is here. And as sappy as it may sound, I love living in love, Hunter says in her memoir.
