Elizabeth Edwards Leaves Husband John Out Of Will

The will Elizabeth Edwards signed days before her death last month makes no mention of her estranged husband and two-time presidential candidate John Edwards.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Thursday that Elizabeth Edwards left all her possessions to her three surviving children.

Her last will and testament names as the executor of her estate her eldest child, lawyer Cate Edwards.

Elizabeth Edwards died Dec. 7, six days after she signed the will filed in Orange County Superior Court in North Carolina.

The Edwardses separated early last year after 32 years of marriage. John Edwards admitted he fathered a child during an affair with a former campaign worker.

    I saw today that ol John is already engaged. Didn't take him long, did it? By the way "J", I for one haven't forgotten what Slick Willie did. I think it's disgraceful how he treated the oval office like a brothel.

    The part that blows my mind is that so many people hate him for what he did but Clinton got a pass. How does that make sense? Personally, I think it's between the people involved and nobody else, but the dichotomy of responses to the two baffles me.

    Like I said been there done that so its not an assumption so maybe you should see legal advice. I went through this with a family member when she lost her spouse and she was not named in the Will.

    He is still the Father to all of the children. I am in no way saying what he did was right/wrong because we all have made mistakes. But I agree with the post 1/6 @ 10:14pm He is a Hottie. Regardless.
