Glad I am not a Kennedy

The Telegraph

The Kennedy Curse has struck again…and you don’t have to have the blood either, just marry it.

The estranged wife of Robert Kennedy Jr has been found dead in her New York home after an apparent suicide.

Mary Kennedy, 52, who had four children with the son of assassinated Democratic candidate and former attorney general Robert Kennedy, was reported to have hanged herself in a barn at her home in the wealthy Westchester County.

Her family confirmed her death in a statement issued by a lawyer. It said: “We deeply regret the death of our beloved sister Mary, whose radiant and creative spirit will be sorely missed by those who loved her.

“Our heart goes out to her children who she loved without reservation. We have no further comment at this time.”

The news of Mrs Kennedy’s death was broken by Radar Online. A source told the website: “There was an EMT [Emergency Medicine Vehicle] vehicle outside the home about an hour ago.”

The couple was married for 16 years before divorcing in May 2010. She was arrested on suspected drink driving charges three days later, and reports also emerged that a complaint of domestic violence had been made and withdrawn, allegedly after two of the couple’s children got into a fight.

    pretty sad for her kids, but you’ve got to lay off the drugs and booze if you want to live a fulfilling life.

      Started well before then Roland – loss of Joseph in WW2 and John and Robert being assassinated in 1963 and 68 – seems a shame the only   issue that right wing nutters attribute to the Kennedy’s is Chappaquiddick  – you are sick ……

        More people have died in Ted Kennedy’s car than in American nuclear accidents.

        Not true, Whale. Kennedy’s only killed around three or four in his car, but there have been at least 7 dead in US Nuke labs alone.  

        Now: Vietnam is the Kennedys’ fault, and that’s about 200K.

       Joe senior backed the Germans in the second world war as he hated the British, he was replaced by the US government when he was Ambassador in the UK.   He also made is money from insider trading and criminal activity during the prohibition.   The Kenedys have always supported the IRA, they are doomed to have bad luck and be mixed up in the seeder side of life.

      The only respect they deserve is that Joseph died in the service of his country.  The others were dishonest womanizers and criminals.  They are associated with murder, rape and drugs.
