Now the name of one woman is making waves all across the globe. And that woman is Mimi Alford, a 69-year-old grandmother who has just released a tell-all book about her sexual relationship with one of the most powerful man in the world–President John F. Kennedy.
Her book, Once Upon a Secret: My Affair with President John F. Kennedy and Its Aftermath, details her 18-month relationship with the former president while she was a White House intern when she was just 19 years old. She also revealed that she was a virgin then and it was the president who became the first man in her life.
Even when Mimi left the White House for further studies, the president continued to contact her using a different name. It was not sure if JFK gave Mimi a college loan refinance or any monetary support at all. He was smitten but I believe he is not a guy who gets easily swayed by emotions. He even asked Mimi one time to give a head to his friend, David Powers, while he watched.
I said that it was a s3xual relationship because while the President continued to pursue her, she was often just picked up and brought to his chambers whenever Mrs. Jackie Kennedy was not at home. And throughout their relationship, everything was just about s3x. The President never even kissed Mimi on the mouth. There were no endearments and Mimi continued to refer to JFK as “Mr. President.”
I will not comment on the other things about this story except the fact that Mimi handled everything with grace. She accepted her part as the “kept woman” who kept her mouth shut, waited for her man to come to her or until he would call for her, and never spoke about their relationship in public at that time. If she chose to speak up now, well, the entire Kennedy household is already gone.
In the present times, many women have attempted to link their names to powerful people. Even if they know that they just spent a one-night stand with an actor or politician, they feel that they have all the right to flaunt it without thinking of the repercussions. I guess for them, it is instant celebrity. And the worse are the women who would like to have more rights than the legal wives. That is really tasteless.
If there is anything that kept women could learn from Mimi Alford, that is class.
