Update: Fake Ratings? There are 130 4 and 5 star ratings without a review. What looked really strange to me was that the majority had no pics, so I counted. There were over 80 (lost count at that point) with no pictures, no friends, no groups, lists, quotes and only default shelves. This looks so...

My motto has always been: Know Your Position. Not everyone is Beyonce, there's nothing wrong with being Kelly or Michelle. They're still rich and they still know Beyonce's phone number. What the Hell does this have to do with Jackie, Janet, & Lee? Jackie Kennedy was the Beyonce to her sister Le...

Prolific biographer Taraborrelli (AFTER CAMELOT, CALL HER MISS ROSS, BECOMING BEYONCE) writes meticulously researched biographies that read like novels, and his third book covering the Kennedy dynasty is fascinating and absorbing. This hefty volume focuses on the relationships among Jacqueline Ke...

With a subtitle like "The Other Side of Camelot," this book was about what you'd expect. It was written with the cooperation of James Auchincloss, which should have tipped me off right away that it was all about the sleeze. He should be ashamed. Plus, the book was poorly written and constructed l...

This is the first book I've ever read about Jackie Kennedy. I didn't realize how dysfunctional her relationship with her family really was. I did, in a way, feel bad for Lee. Growing up, Jackie was clearly favored by both their parents forcing Lee to grow up in her shadow. Then of course Jackie b...

I decided to listen to this book on CD suspecting I might be able to get through it easier that way since I had a feeling it would be pure gossip. I was correct on both accounts. While I felt a bit vile listening to the many unflattering stories (to put it kindly), listen I continued to do becaus...

This book reads like two different pieces of literature. Sometimes is seems like a very, very long article one might find in a Vanity Fair magazine. Other times it resembles a screenplay for some cheesy B-movie. I stopped reading it about a third of the way through.

I picked this one up for pure escapism, but it's well-researched and written in an engaging style. It details the sibling rivalry between Jacqueline Kennedy and her sister Lee Radziwill, as well as their mother Janet's relentless pursuit of money and power. She pushed her daughters to marry wealt...

wow... I had no idea how the privileged elite live(d). I had my California nouveau-riche version, but hearing about their old money and decadent lifestyles was very jaw-dropping. In my eyes Jackie Kennedy was the beautiful president's widow, not much more. I grew up with her being on the covers...

Janet was born into a life of money and influence. She drilled into her two girls to marry well - rich men who could sustain their life-style provided by her second husband Hugh Auchincloss after her first marriage ended in divorce and left them with little money of their own. Jackie and Lee were...
