Jackie Oh-no! A naked pic of the late President Kennedy’s wife, Jackie Kennedy Onassis, has recently been discovered by archivists in a box of Andy Warhol‘s junk. But don’t get too excited about a possible Kennedy/Warhol affair: It’s merely a snap that porn king Larry Flynt bought from paparazzi who had caught Kennedy Onassis skinny-dipping and used as a poster for his mag, Hustler. The archivists assume that Jackie mailed the photo to her pal Warhol as a joke, signing it, “For Andy, with enduring affection, Jackie Montauk.” Good to know she had a sense of humor about it!
Since Warhol’s death in 1987, the pic had been gathering dust in one of 610 cardboard boxes filled with the pop art prince’s weird crap, including a mummified human foot, a loaf of orange nut bread and a crusty piece of birthday cake. Hmm, sounds like someone had a hoarding problem, although he admittedly held onto some cool s**t. [AP]

Okay, I’m starting to feel like the “Kennedy Curse” might actually be real. I think we should just leave the living Kennedys alone and let the deceased ones rest in peace. We all have heard ad nauseum about all of John F. Kennedy’s alleged affairs—mostly notoriously with Marilyn Monroe—but a new book by C.

Gucci will release a new interpretation of its classic Jackie style (after Jackie Kennedy), along with this sexy ad campaign with Brigitte Bardot lookalike, Anja Rubik. The new, larger size takes the bag to an edgier level with versions in metallic/violet leather, brown python, and an envy-inducing green python. The collection of 12 styles comes out in the fall, even though the news broke just a few days short of the 4th of July. So, does America trump Italy in this case? [View on Fashion] Keep reading »
Sigh, now this is a celebrity rumor I love to hear. The forthcoming book Bobby & Jackie: A Love Story by C. David Heymann details the alleged affair between Jackie Kennedy and her brother-in-law Bobby. That’s not the good part. While researching his book, Heymann says he came across unpublished passages from Marlon Brando’s autobiography (which I have read and it is glorious) Songs My Mother Taught Me which reveal Brando had an affair with Jackie a year after John F. Kennedy was murdered. According to Heymann, Brando wrote:
“She kept waiting for me to try to get her into bed. When I failed to make a move, she took matters into her own hands and popped the magic question. ‘Would you like to spend the night?’ And I said, ‘I thought you’d never ask.’”
