She opens up about John Edwards's affair.

Elizabeth Edwards

Elizabeth Edwards's memoir doesn't hit bookstores 'til May 12, but the Internet is already buzzing about it. Here's a sneak peek of what's in store.

- The affair
According to the New York Daily News, which has acquired an advance copy of Resilience: Reflections on the Burdens and Gifts of Facing Life's Adversities, Elizabeth Edwards shares her initial reaction to learning of the affair. "I cried and screamed, I went to the bathroom and threw up."

- The lies
Even when Edwards confessed to his wife, he lied, claiming he had slipped up just once, Elizabeth writes. His original version of the story "left most of the truth out," she says.

- The mistress
Outside a New York hotel, Rielle Hunter told John Edwards: "You are so hot." He later paid her $114,000 to produce a batch of short films on his candidacy. Elizabeth says Hunter is a parasitic groupie who invaded the Edwardses' life, and that she's "pathetic."

- The love
Despite their struggles, Elizabeth and John have stayed together. Elizabeth writes: "I lie in bed, circles under my eyes, my sparse hair sticking in too many directions, and he looks at me as if I am the most beautiful woman he has ever seen. It matters."

If your husband cheated, would you stay?

No I would not stay with my husband if he cheated. We have 3 kids, 2 are girls and I do not want to show my girls that it’s ok to be walked on. So I would leave for sure.

i’ll think twice… right now, i have doubts that my husband is cheating on me. If i can prove this, i’m sure to trash him out. we have a son, but i’m also concerned with my dignity as a woman..:)
