Cate Edwards,31, John Edwards oldest daughter opened up about missing her mother Elizabeth and her father’s affair with Rielle Hunter. Edwards sat down with Savannah Guthrie and talked about the day her father revealed his affair, “He told me. I guess he and my mom decided that that was, you know, how it needed to be done. So yeah, I was devastated. And I was disappointed. I mean, these are my parents. I had grown up with a lot of love in my family. And it was hard to see them go through this.” “Were you mad (about the affair)?” Guthrie asked.”Yeah, yeah, of course,” Edwards replied.

Edwards also discussed her mother who died on Dec. 7, 2010 of cancer.”I miss her in sort of big ways and small ways. You know, it’s big things that go by, like my wedding. She wasn’t able to be there. But we got to talk about it. And I felt incredibly lucky that I got the chance to even have that conversation with her. And I sort of carried out some of her vision which was great to sort of feel her presence there even though she wasn’t actually there. And then there are small things. I mean, I get away with bad grammar. I never used to get away with bad grammar.”
