John Edwards and Rielle Hunter and Paula Broadwell
21 March, 2012
John Edwards was certain that he was having a heart attack, so he called Rielle Hunter, it is said. .She rushed over from her place in Charlotte. On being released from N.C. Memorial Hospital, Edwards returned to the Chapel Hill, N.C., estate he once shared with his late wife Elizabeth.
He now lives there with his two youngest kids, Emma Claire, 14, and Jack, 12. He and Rielle are not living together,
Paula Broadwell, Gen. David Petraeus’s “other woman,” lives just about 1.6 miles away from the home of Rielle Hunter. Both women reside in the Dilworth section of Charlotte, N.C.

The twitter-sphere is rife with rumors that Rielle Hunter and John Edwards are very much together again after the big breakup that occurred this summer upon the release of her book, What Really Happened: John Edwards, Our Daughter and Me. (It was, in fact, the first time they’d ever really broken up since that fateful night in February 2006 at the Regency Hotel.) But recently, there’ve been sightings of the two, frolicking around, and not just in a co-parenting sort of way. “I’m thinking maybe this breakup didn’t last too long,” I tell her.
“I don’t want to talk about our relationship,” she says, sweetly but firmly.
[June 14]The Justice Department has dropped its criminal case against former presidential candidate John Edwards. His campaign finance trial ended in a mistrial last month, with jurors acquitting him of one of six counts related to a a donation in 2008 from his friend, wealthy banking heiress Rachel “Bunny” Mellon.
The jurors were unable to reach a verdict on the remaining five counts, which included a conspiracy charge and two charges related to donations from another wealthy donor, the late Fred Baron. The Justice Department filed notice with U.S. District Judge Catherine C. Eagles in North Carolina on Wednesday that it was dropping the remaining charges.
