She is a beautiful woman, and I'm sad to know she is dead. Two interesting observations: her death come two years to the day after she was arrested for DUI, and of the 20 pictures shown above, she is wearing black in every picture....

Why does she look so much like one of the Kennedy clan, facially? Hmmm.

I lived around Robert Kennedy's family, in NYC at the UN Plaza, and in RI. My mom tried to always get us to play with Robert's children. The girl's ignorned us, but the Kennedy boys roughed house too much with my brother. They loved my sister, she was so miuch like them. As for the suicide, anyone that close to Kennedy's will have a bad demise usually, even my dad did, and he loved the Kennedy's and followed them around like a Grateful Dead fan and scroll through to see the story how it should be told! The woman took her own life. How sad.

Can we stop pretending that the Kennedy's are famous? This isn't the ****ing 60's or 70's anymore.

Someone wrote a novel and has Robert F. Kennedy's kids down pat, I believe it just want you all to see some girl's blog that said she used to go to the Kenndy's apartment when Robert F. Kennedy and Ethel lived at the UN Plaza in New York City and I was just reading about how those kids really were, they seem snotty and ignored this girl's family and one son threw a hockey puck at her, so I can see why this poor woman killed herself who was the ex of Kennedy Jr.

Was there ever a faithful Kennedy husband? They use up their wives and throw them away like tissues.

The Kennedy's have done a lot to help people. Think of the special olympics. Yes they have many flaws in their personal lives. But with the amount of money and power they were born with, that tends to happen a lot. Over privilaged people have a tendancy to think some rules don't apply to them.

John Jr. was a good guy. I can't think of anything bad reported about him that was not gossip.

RIP Mary
