Former presidential candidate and North Carolina governor John Edwards admitted to having an affair with a former campaign videographer after she revealed that he had fathered her child.
In her interview, Elizabeth explains that it was not easy to leave her husband of 32 years after learning of the affair. Furthermore, she says she found strength in her mother, whose husband was also unfaithful and taught her "how to continue your life on your own terms when somehow it becomes savaged by people you never invited into it".
The two will be selling their $5.5 million mansion in Chapel Hill.
