This is a story of unmitigated fuckery, replete with cunts, bit I will focus on Robert Kennedy Jr as the Cunt in Charge, so to speak.
When his wife Mary hung herself last month, it was a tragic event that naturally shocked the public and was covered by the press with all due sensitivity. The Kennedy’s were in the middle of a difficult divorce and one could infer that Mary Kennedy suffered from depression.
But apparently, RFK Jr couldn’t take the rumors that it was his womanizing and financial bullying that led Mary to despair.
Now, his private affidavit in the divorce procedings, documenting his accusations against Mary and his reasons for wanting to restrict her access to the children, has been “leaked!”
And Newsweek (i.e. Tina Brown) has employed “Kennedy historian” Laurence Leamer to write a sordid piece on Mary Kennedy’s “Tragic Last Days,” based on the leaked affidavit and some out-of-context quotes. The Newsweek piece cites a diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder, which Mary’s family flatly denies, and RFK’s accounts of being punched by his wife, “a trained boxer.” He contends that he was so frightened of her on one occasion that he jumped out a second-story window to escape her blows.
As if. But the story is so much worse. And Mary’s family says, in part:
The scurrilous affidavit, which is the entire basis for the Newsweek article, was written by Bobby Kennedy as part of a contentious custody battle and was nothing more than a brutal psychological weapon in the divorce case. The affidavit, which Mary repudiated at the time, is full of vindictive lies. This latest piling on is proof perfect of the unbelievable emotional and psychological abuse that Mary endured during the last years of her life, and now in death. The false claim that Mary suffered from BPD is also an insult to those who do struggle with this serious mental illness.
Meanwhile, no one denies that RFK was rampantly unfaithful throughout his marriage, including a long affair with Cheryl Hines, the actress who plays Larry David’s wife on Curb Your Enthusiasm. (I don’t know why this fact bothers me but it does.)
Fuck RFK Jr and his funny voice. Fuck him for “leaking” his sealed affidavit. He’s just another Kennedy who thinks he can use his name and his money to cover up his bad behavior. Fuck Tina Brown for stooping so low to publish this shit. Fuck Laurence Leamer for making a career out of Kennedy hagiography. Fuck the Kennedy clan for refusing to let Mary’s family take custody of her body.
And fuck the housekeeper, on RFK Jr’s payroll, who says that her husband bought Mary some rope because “she said she needed it.” This after stating that Mary was always threatening suicide.
Poor Mary! May she be be somewhere peaceful, and free of the Kennedys, for all eternity.
