The late Elizabeth Edwards’ parents are fuming and will do anything to make sure her daughter Cate DOES NOT invite John’s mistress Rielle Hunter or his daughter Francis Quinn to the wedding.
A battle is brewing! John Edwards daughter with his late wife Elizabeth, who passed away of cancer in December at 61, is getting married, but it’s anything but a happy occasion. John’s mistress Rielle Hunter is demanding that Frances Quinn, the child she had with John in 2008, be included in the nuptials. And she doesn’t just mean an invite — Rielle wants Quinn to be the flower girl!
According to the National Enquirer, the bride Cate, 29, was open to the idea of letting her 3½-year-old half sister be a part of the wedding, but Elizabeth’s parents are “dead-set” against it.
A source says that “Elizabeth’s family is furious at the mere suggestion of it,” and that they feel the gesture would be a “huge slap in the face” to their late daughter.
And Cate‘s wedding date is fast approaching — she’s set to marry medical resident Trevor Upham on October 22 in North Carolina!
“Elizabeth’s family will never forget how she died brokenhearted because of his [John’s] selfish behavior,” the source adds. “They refuse to let John’s actions tarnish Cate’s big day.”
But on the other hand, Cate is trying to follow her mother’s wishes, which were to keep the family together and look after her younger siblings, Emma, 13, and Jack, 11, if anything were to happen. And lets face it, in reality, Quinn IS one of those siblings.
What do YOU think? Should Quinn be invited to the wedding or should the Edwards keep Elizabeth’s parents wishes in mind?
