National Enquirer: John Edwards Proposes to Rielle Hunter

According to the latest issue of the National Enquirer, former presidential candidate John Edwards has asked Rielle Hunter to marry him. The Enquirer report is not yet online, and most confused media outlets are linking to a similar Enquirer story from February of 2010.

While the tablod gained some credibility by breaking the story of both the extramarital affair between Edwards and Hunter, and their resulting lovechild, the report of a proposal is understandably being greeting with skepticism by the mainstream media. True or not, it’s rather distasteful, given that Edward’s estranged wife Elizabeth died of cancer just last month.
