    Elizabeth Edwards tells Oprah Winfrey in an episode of her show this week that her love for John is "complicated."

    Elizabeth Edwards told Oprah Winfrey this week that it's a "complicated question" if she is still in love with philandering husband Sen. John Edwards and that his reported child with mistress Rielle Hunter doesn't look anything like her kids with John.

    Winfrey asked Edwards in an episode of "The Oprah Winfrey Show" if she still is in love with John -- and Edwards responded in the tell-all interview with hesitation.

    "You know, that's a complicated question," Edwards said. "Neither one of us is out the door so I guess it's day by day, maybe month by month."

    Edwards and Winfrey spoke at the Edwards' Chapel Hill, N.C., home, where the Senator and his wife still live together even after he admitted his long-time infidelity last August.

    The author, who will soon release her new memoir "Resilience," claimed her own children with the Senator look nothing like his alleged love child with the mistress. Her husband has denied paternity, and Edwards addressed the speculation.

    "That's what I understand," said Edwards, whose battle with terminal cancer made headlines during her husband's presidential campaign. "I've seen a picture of the baby. I have no idea. It doesn't look like my children, but I don't have any idea."

    Edwards wrote in "Resilience" that her husband's affair made her throw up in a bathroom and scream at the top of her lungs. She told Winfrey she had asked her husband for only one gift when they married 31 years ago -- fidelity.

    "I wanted him to be faithful to me," Edwards said. "It was enormously important to me."

    The episode of "The Oprah Winfrey Show," which also features an interview with Sen. John Edwards, will air Thursday.
