Classless and shameless as ever, the woman who had an affair — and a lovechild — with John Edwards is telling people she thinks she and the ex-Senator will ‘get married.’

It’s only been one day since Elizabeth Edwards passed, but John Edwards‘ mistress and mother of his child, Rielle Hunter, is already reportedly running her mouth about getting to “finally” marry John.

“Rielle has been very patient through all of this,” a source told RadarOnline. “She still believes that John is her soul mate, and she thinks that they’re going to get married.”

We can only imagine how an assumption like this will upset Elizabeth’s friends and family. The 61-year-old inspiration died Dec. 7 after struggling six years with cancer, in addition to dealing with her husband’s infidelity and the child he had with Rielle.

“She doesn’t care about anyone but herself.  She’s been selfish and horrible this whole time, no matter what else has been said about her,” the source said about Rielle.

Do YOU think John should marry Rielle if he loves her? How long is an appropriate time to wait?
