How President Kennedy Seduced a White House Intern — Inside the Bedroom He Shared with Jackie

How President Kennedy Seduced a White House Intern — Inside the Bedroom He Shared with Jackie
She was a wide-eyed White House intern just four days into the job when she found herself standing alone next to the most powerful man in the world — in the most intimate room within 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

Mimi Alford (née Beardsley) was all of 19 when she began working in the White House press office in 1962, and almost immediately caught the eye of President John F. Kennedy. While last year’s Jackie movie shed new light on how the first lady created the myth of Camelot after JFK’s assassination, much curiosity remains about their marriage and what Jackie knew.

As Alford details in her 2012 book,

Legion Season 1 Episode 3 Review: Chapter 3

If you guys can get through an episode of this show without a honking headache at the end, then boy, are you lucky!

The pace slows even more in Legion Season 1 Episode 3, but the mind bending trippiness doesn't let up one bit. Dreams within dreams, memories that aren't memories, and more general insanity makes this one Really hard to follow.

I'm still liking it, but I wonder if we are reaching a saturation point with the cray cray "unreliable narrator" structure of the show. It might be getting too weird for it's own good. 

I love a show with lots of layers, and this one sure has that. But at a certain point, we as an audience need to know what the deal is regarding what the hell is Really going on. 

Melanie: You're not just a telepath. You can control objects with your mind.

David: Control may be an overstatement.

Inside the Kennedy Auction

Inside the Kennedy Auction
In 1946 congressional candidate John Kennedy knocked on the door of local political operative Dave Powers to ask for his help getting the neighborhood vote. And so began their lifelong friendship. Few were closer to Kennedy than Powers, who became the President's special assistant - and also, says Kennedy biographer Laurence Leamer, a discreet "procurer" of women. (In her 2012 book, Kennedy mistress Mimi Alford credits Powers with arranging their trysts.) "His whole job," says Leamer, "was to protect the President's image." Powers, later curator of the JFK Library, remained close with the family until his death in 1998. Last year, when his

Imprisoned Hollywood Detective Means Trouble For Star Clients

Los Angeles — Four years after a private eye went to prison for wiretapping phones of the rich and famous on behalf of celebrities and Hollywood heavyweights, his clients are facing hefty bills for his skullduggery.

In the first of more than a dozen lawsuits against Anthony Pellicano's well-heeled clients, a jury last week ruled against the ex-wife of a billionaire philanthropist, awarding $4 million to his three adult children and former personal assistant after she violated their privacy.

The verdict could spell trouble for other former clients who have been sued, such as Paramount studio head Brad Grey and one-time superagent Michael Ovitz.

The case against the ex-wife, Jacqueline Colburn, is the first to be tried before a jury stemming from a criminal probe that ensnared Pellicano for targeting Sylvester Stallone, Garry Shandling and Kevin Nealon and for work he did for others like Chris Rock and an attorney who

A woman who interned in the White House of President John F. Kennedy claims that JFK took her virginity 50 years ago during her time at the White House, reports the New York Post.

Mimi Alford, 69, writes in new book "Once Upon a Secret: My Affair with President John F. Kennedy and Its Aftermath" that she had an 18-month affair with JFK while working at the White House.

Among other stories, the book details Mimi's first meeting with the President in the White House pool and then a "personal tour" of the estate that culminated in a sexual encounter in the bedroom of Jackie Kennedy. It was Mimi's first time.

The excerpts read like stuff out of a bodice ripper - "The next thing she knew, he was standing above her, looking directly into her eyes and guiding
