Oprah Interviews Elizabeth Edwards
On December 28, 2006—two days after John announced that he was joining the 2008 presidential race—Elizabeth says her husband of 29 years told her he'd broken the promise he made on their wedding day. He had been unfaithful.
While sitting with Oprah in the dream home she and John built together, Elizabeth speaks publicly about that night for the first time.
Oprah: The first time you were told, I read in Resilience, you got physically sick.
Elizabeth: I did.
Oprah: You cried, you screamed, you cried.
Elizabeth: And then I threw up. That was a really tough night.
