John Edwards' former mistress calls his wife 'witch on wheels'
Rielle Hunter, John Edwards' former mistress, writes in her new book that the two-time presidential candidate told her he had at least two previous affairs and also made up three other relationships so she wouldn't become too attached, according to ABC News.
Hunter's book, "What Really Happened: John Edwards, Our Daughter, and Me," which is set to be released on June 26, follows Edwards' federal trial in North Carolina, which ended in May with an acquittal on one campaign finance charge and a mistrial on five others after the jury deadlocked.
The Justice Department announced last week that it would not re-try the former U.S. senator.
Hunter blames Elizabeth Edwards for driving John Edwards to cheat. She describes Elizabeth Edwards in unflattering terms, calling her "crazy," "venomous," and a "witch on wheels," ABC News reported.
