New Book Says Jackie O ‘Got Even’ With JFK by Bedding Both RFK and Teddy

-By Warner Todd Huston

A bombshell new book about the life of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis claims that she had a robust sex life before and after her life with President John Kennedy. But the book shocks readers with the claim that Jackie O also had numerous sex partners during her marriage to the president and even had affairs with his own brothers.

The book, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, A Life Beyond Her Wildest Dreams, by Darwin Porter and Danforth Prince, claims to chronicle the life of what is perhaps America’s most famous First Lady, laying out a long, long list of sexual partners she supposedly had throughout her very public life.

The book insists that Jackie had steamy affairs with such Hollywood stars as Warren Beatty, Peter Lawford, Paul Newman, Gregory Peck, Frank Sinatra, William Holden and Marlon Brando.

The book quotes numerous sources close to Jackie, such as writers Gore Vidal and Truman Capote. Capote, the authors say, once noted that, “Virginity was something Jackie wanted to get rid of as soon as possible. If my calculations are correct, she went to bed with at least five guys before Jack sampled the honeypot.”

But it is the book’s claims about her affairs with her tragic husband’s own brothers that really raises eyebrows.

The authors say that Jackie O was bedding her husband’s brothers and that they all knew it was going on, too.

Teddy was the one who “stood by Jackie through one crisis after another,” the authors state. He became one man who Jacqueline could depend upon.

Teddy is also quoted as saying he was “always in love” with Jackie, even when he knew she was sleeping with his brother Bobby in the years after John Kennedy’s assassination.

The book says that Jackie didn’t think much of President Kennedy’s lovemaking abilities.

Authors quote the famed First Lady as saying, “I knew that women didn’t find him a great lover. He certainly wasn’t. He wanted a quickie and then he was back on the phone talking with some silly politician. When he did have sex with me, he would turn over and go to sleep right away. There I was listening to his snoring and almost crying at my lack of fulfillment as a woman.”

But Jackie is said to have had numerous affairs during her husband’s presidency in retribution for his own sleeping around. And after the President’s assassination, Jackie began acting like a “love bird” with the President’s brother, Bobby.

She was also interested in Teddy at the same time, the book says. She reportedly told Truman Capote, “I’m in love with two men at the same time, both Bobby and Teddy.”

When he began ramping up his own campaign for president, Bobby put a halt to his affair with Jackie O, it is said. And then Teddy swooped in and really got closer to her.

But it wasn’t long before she announced her marriage to Greek shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis, with whom she was also carrying on a relationship.

In the end, those men mentioned above are only a very short listing of the men this shocking new book ties to “Camelot’s” Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. It appears that Jackie O wasn’t the quiet, demure, well behaved woman that every thought she was. If even half of this is true, she led quite an active life, indeed.

But it also shows one more thing. It shows just how depraved the Kennedys are, doesn’t it? Maybe it shows how the Kennedys can also lie with abandon and pull the wool over everyone’s eyes.
