I had a chance to watch Oprah's interview with Mrs. Edwards yesterday and found myself feeling even more sympathetic for Mrs. Edwards than before. The interview centered around John's affair and like only Oprah can gracefully do, she asked many tough questions about John's "indiscretion(s)."
I was really surprised at Mrs. Edward's take on the entire affair. She seemed very defensive of her husband, saying that despite [the affair] she has a perfect husband. She even went as far as saying that she felt like she had to protect John. But what really stood out to me dealt with the allegations that John may have fathered his mistress's baby. They still don't know. John has not taken a paternity test (or at least, that's what they are saying), and even more surprising to me, Mrs. Edwards said that even if the child was determined to be John's, it would not change her life. It would make no difference to her.
How unfair is that to the child? It just complelty turned me off. If John is the father, he needs to step up to the plate and take care of his child. Presidential nominee or not, he could potentially be a deadbeat dad. I have so many more things to say about this but it's so late (or early) and tomorrow is going to be a crazy day (as usual).
What are your thoughts on this? Did you see the show?
