John Edwards' Future: Reality TV Awaits
Still, Edwards, now that he's acquitted on one charge and unlikely to face a retrial on the others, is going to have to do something. While F. Scott Fitzgerald's assertion about American lives lacking second acts is still frequently quoted, we also know that modern life (and cable television) has disproved it. Indeed, Edwards has been so extensively humiliated that his only option may lie in that programming desert between TLC and E! The man who once was viewed as an heir to Bill Clinton now holds more pop-cult symmetry with Britney Spears. He may want to consider ditching Rielle to marry himself a Kardashian.
