The Other Mrs KennedyAn Intimate and Revealing Look at the Hidden Life of Ethel Skakel Kennedy

Difficult decisions of her life when she agreed to pull the plug on Bobby as he lay dying after being shot by Sirhan SirhanShe distanced herself from her own Skakel family whose scandals exceeded those of even the Kennedys I read this book many years ago wanting to learn on Ethel Kennedy I came away having no respect for this very selfish person though it is a very detailed book about The Kennedy's

Jerry Oppenheimer ì 1 CHARACTERS

Ist and blackballed those who she felt were disloyal or critical of the KennedysShe turned Hickory Hill into an eerie shrine that included life sized photos of Bobby in closets that startled visitorsShe made one fo the most Not a flattering picture of Ethel Skakel and her life with the Kennedys Fascinating read and I really enjoyed it I read it out of order starting with RFK's assassination and then read about her childhood What a mess of a family A great voyeuristic look into those who surrounded America's Royal Family

    A really great trashy Kennedy biography by an author who obviously can not stand Ethel Kennedy I don't really understand why the author hates Ethel Kennedy He seems to look down on her for being a messy bitchmy words not his in the aftermath of the murder of her husband Robert F Kennedy The woman has 11 FUCKING kids I don't have any kids and I've never witnessed my husband's assassinationI also don't have a husband and I'm a very messy bitch sooooI guess I should be happy I'm not famous and no one wants to write a book about me This book is an enjoyable read though it is very dated it came out in 1994Before Ethel's son Michael was discovered to be having an affair with his 14 year old babysitter and later died by skiing into a tree it also came out before Jackie John Jr and Ted Kennedy died and most glaringly it came out before Ethel's nephew Michael Skakel was tried convicted and had his conviction upheld for the 1975 murder of Martha Moxley In fact at the time of this books publication the chief suspect in the Moxley case was Michael's brother Tommy Ethel Kennedy is the last remaining Camelot era KennedyJoan's still alive too but she's not really living She has survived the deaths of her parents all of her siblings her beloved husband Robert all of her brother in laws and two of her very own children In my own humble opinion Ethel is a fucking savage and I love her Only recommended to true Kennedyophiles like myself

    This was a very detailed biography It doesn't portray Ethel very well She wanted to have all those children so she could beat Rose Kennedy's record of nine but she traveled a lot and left those children for others to raise This is common and typical in rich and powerful families though It explains why these children wind up the way they do David Kennedy was a tragic figure because his mother wouldn't talk to him about his father's assassination when he needed to and that was very sad Ethel only lived for one thing and that was Robert if this book is to be believed even long after his death No woman or person should make their lives only about one thing or person At least Jackie did what she could to move on whether people agreed with her choices or not When someone is gone tragically they're gone If you have children then focus on them Ethel had eleven and this is where her attention should have been after her husband died Then again I can understand the cruelty of it all Ethel lived for her husband and his career and it was difficult to cope with losing all that at once I recommend this book it was detailed and very interestingAM Torres Author of Love Child

    The author did a good job of researching the Skakel side of Ethel Kennedy's heritage This book has lots of good information about those folks Otherwise though this book was a big let down It recycles the same old information about Mrs Kennedy and her husband and does not really add anything new to that story It focuses on dishing the dirt and is poorly written dirt at that Not recommended

    The first thing I've read about the Kennedys Such an exhausting aggressive bully Money and power brought no class to Ethel for certain

    The Skakel family was even wild than the Kennedys I was never impressed by them Applauding for driving a brand new car into a pool literally SHOOTING each other etc It was insanity and I pity themI have heard stories of Bobby and Ethel having a rambunctious household and a zoo but I never thought of them as poor parents until I read this book I was shocked at how entitled Ethel has been throughout her life People constantly gave her passes because she's always been a member of a wealthy family One of the most revolting things I read in this book was when her sister Georgeann gave birth to a daughter born 'blind deaf stunted and retarded' When Ethel heard the news a friend said she made her hand into the shape of a gun and put it to her head Shockingly inappropriate So much has been made of Ethel's religion and daily mass It doesn't seem like it actually had a great affect on her character though She constantly flouted authority broke rules and expected people to give in to her She thought being a Kennedy meant people should feel honored to help instead of expecting payment for things like clothes groceries etc She sounds horrible They both seemed like poor parents RFK because he didn't have the time to commit to 11 kids but kept on procreating and Ethel for a thousand reasons She wanted the glory of being a great mom without putting in the work It's no wonder her kids ended up with so many issuesIf this author is credible Bobby was also a very crude person His response to Ethel's parents dying in a plane crash was appalling I don't know I need to research this author How is it possible every person is so awful? I feel like he went for shock value in everything The first thing that gave me pause was he alleged Bobby was cheating on Ethel before they were married and also propositioned a woman in front of her husband That goes against every account I've ever heard about him I heard that Hoover had him bugged and hoped to catch him cheating to embarrass but Bobby was clean as a whistle unlike his brother It is incredible how many people in their world had plane crashes Ethel's parents die in one her brother later died in another Ted Kennedy survived one Joe Kennedy died in one Kick Kennedy died in one JFK jr along with his wife and sister in law died in one Jackies stepson died in one and later Jackies boyfriend's son in law died on 91 flown into pentagon Oh and Joe Kennedy rfk's son not brother they all repeat names is on a plane that got hijackedAll in all if what I read was true or not it was very interesting and made for a good tale 35 stars

    What an informative interesting and entertaining read I could not put the book down The life of Ethel Skakel Kennedy was one of supreme joys and devastating tragedies The story of the Skakels and Kennedys would involve reckless behavior alcoholism and many losses Both families had a brood of children hailed from Irish roots had little fear of danger and enjoyed being mischievous and out of controlJerry Oppenheimer writes short riveting chapters in this lengthy book Ethel's early life in Greenwichher father made millions starting Great Lake Carbon co her Catholic upbringing her life with Bobby the eleven children they had and the tragedies that beset both the Kennedys and Skakel's are all vividly described in the book The section on her children kept me turning the pages I also enjoyed reading the historical context that provided an interesting backdrop to what was happening in our country especially during the 50s 60s and 70sIt's ironic how Ethel idolized Rose Kennedy her role model for life She was determined to have children than Rose and she did Ethel also learned like Rose to be loyal to Kennedy family members regardless of what they did She desperately cared about imagelike Rose and made sure no one sullied the Kennedy name If you did you were banished from her life forever Ethel suppressed her emotions regarding the assassination of Bobby but then took it out in rages on her children and was emotionally unavailable to them Sadly many of them suffered through the addictions of alcohol and hard drugs David Kennedy lost his life to both scourges Ethel was unable to be there for her sons David and Bobby Jr and would just kick them out of the house send them away or put Ted in charge of them Like this really helpedEthel turned out to be Kennedy than even the Kennedys' themselves Like her role model Rose she had a brood of children Ethel still alive and in her 90s appears to be living out her greatest desireto live longer than the Kennedy matriarch and she's on her way to accomplishing this Highly recommended especially for a summer read
