Diana wanted to be US' first lady
Times of India ^ | JUNE 27, 2005

Posted on 06/26/2005 10:55:35 PM PDT by phoenix_004

Princess Diana had a passionate affair with John F Kennedy Jr, according to a new book on the late former wife of Prince Charles.

Diana and Kennedy, who both died in tragic accidents in the 1990s, met in New York in 1995 when the son of the assassinated US president sought an interview with her for his magazine George , the Sun newspaper reported today.

She refused but agreed to meet him in his luxury suite in the Manhattan hotel overlooking Central Park, according to Simmons, described by the paper as a "friend and confidante" of the late Princess of Wales.

Diana was "bowled over" by Kennedy's charm. "We started talking, one thing led to another and we ended up in bed together. It was pure chemistry," she is quoted as saying in Simmons book 'Diana: the last word'.

Also, according to the new biography, Diana thought the pair would make a great team and even entertained the idea of becoming the United States' first lady if he went into politics.

Upon her return to London, Diana had an astrological chart drawn up on Kennedy and concluded that they were not compatible enough to pursue a relationship, according to Simmons.

They remained in contact for some time before Kennedy married Carolyn Bessette the following year.

Diana was killed in 1997 in a car accident in Paris.

Kennedy, his wife and her sister Lauren Bessette were all killed when the plane he was piloting crashed near Martha's Vineyard in July 1999.

I take back what I had said earlier in her favor. Gawd, what a twit.

I remember someone saying that if her IQ was 5 points lower, she'd require daily watering.

*mental note* never have anything to do with Kennedy's. Early death may occur.

Whatever happened to not speaking ill of the dead, and letting souls rest in peace?

With "in depth" interviews of astrology-loving, shallow, promiscuous princesses, no wonder his magazine George died a premature death.

Hmmm... what if JFK had married Nancy Reagan?

Apparently if Diana had ignored her horoscope, she might've lived two more years.

"Whatever happened to not speaking ill of the dead, and letting souls rest in peace?"

While I agree in principle, I think it is also edifying to note that the way these persons lived their lives, and their very attitudes towards life in general were instrumental in their untimely demise.

I can not say what kind of husband Charles was, but had Diane not been off in Paris sharing her crown jewels with Dodi Fayed, she might still be alive.

Likewise, Kennedy, no doubt accustomed to have his way, made a hurried flight under less than optimum conditions as a very green solo pilot. Somewhere in his life, he had not been taught patience and likely lacked the humility to acknowledge his skills as an aviator where not up to the flight he was making. I've read articles about how his hurried impatience led to the fateful decision to fly himself and his wife that night.

Not sure I believe this, but they would have made a much better couple than she and Dodie or Charlie for that matter. This is most likely garbage however.

I don't honestly care who people say Diana slept with. She can't defend herself which makes her an irresistable target of rumormongers.

Without independant backing, I would place this on the same plane as Kitty Kelley's crap about Nancy Reagan having a tryst with Sinatra.

Clear case of Arkancide. JFK jr. announced he may run for Senator, Hitlery knocked him off then Di because she wanted to be US first lady.

I personally HATE discussing the dead in this manner.

We have no way of proving any of this - and I really resent people making $$$ off her memory.

The first person to bring up Hitler...how does that saying go? I'm only good at OLD sayings. :)
Sayings aside, Diana and JFK Jr. are just not in the same category with monsters like Hitler, who is not resting in peace, we trust.

Let 'em rest in peace. Fine w/me. It was this faux-''journalist'' who brought the names up again, true? In which case, if the deceased are fair game for the ''journalist'', they're fair game for all.

Right?

I'm finding it curious that Dianna made these assumptions: sleeping with a guy she'd just met would lead to her becoming First Lady (of the U.S.).

I don't get the logic there.

Seriously, this part of this story seems far more strange than her use of astrology. Which appears to have either helped her encounter doom or failed to enlighten her as to how to live otherwise.

A tragic story of a tragic life...although I agree that it's doing no good to discuss the deceased. In the case of Dianna and John Kennedy, Jr., etc., however, their place in history makes them of ongoing interest to discuss. But, if it'd been up to me, I'd have foregone the sexual gossip.

It always surprises me how many "friends" and "close confidantes" dead people have. And they ALWAYS speak the truth. *rolling eyes*

I have to agree that she wasn't too bright. She married Charles knowing how he felt about Camilla. She just wanted to be a little princess! Doh! To this day, I can't understand her popularity.
As for her having chemistry with JFK Jr......double doh! Sorry, I just can't imagine it without lmao! Puleeeeeze!

Diana was terribly messed up. She had a lot of issues from her childhood. Susie Orbach, her therapist knows what went on, but is vowed to secrecy about what she knows. What she knows may also be so explosive and incredible in it's implications that she knows it is very dangerous for her to speak up.

And there's the rub. I was a pen pal of a Canadian woman when Diana was being chased by Charles, and I told my friend that Diana was an idiot to go after Charles.

Her response was, SHE IS GOING TO BE QUEEN!

She may not have defended Diana, but she sure knew why she was doing it!

CHAPTER FOUR

John F Kennedy Jr was wildly humping away when he noticed a change in Diana's expression.

"Am I hurting you, Di?"

"Why, no. Why do you ask, John John?"

"YOU MOVED!"

True story......

Di is in New York, killing time before her meeting with JFK, Jr, in a neighborhood bar. She's sitting down at one end, nursing a house chardonnay, when a horse comes in and orders "the usual". The bartender puts one of those giant frosty steins of draft in front of the horse, and goes back to polishing glasses.

A few minutes later, this skeleton walks in, strides up to the bar and says, "Hey, bartender, gimme a beer and a mop!"

Then he turns to the horse and says, "Hey, Buddy, why the long face?"

True...it's in Simmons' book.

Don't believe it just because it's in print. This may not have happened at all.

I'm not saying it didn't; I'm just saying I'm very skeptical about anything I read or hear in any news medium.

This new BS book is by Dianna's "psychic.' She regularly talks to dead people (asnd they talk back through her), can heal the sick, predict the future....

In other words, she is simply a side show con woman with a big audience.

Is it appropriate to have a thread on the subject? I did not mean to imply that it wasn't. I am not the authority on what may be discussed here.
But the people who start these stories and the "journalists" who "report" them, they're tomb-robbing ghouls.

From what is known about John-John's habits, he prolly had Di up to his pad for a coke or two. They hit the sack and their pillow talk was of the restoration of Camelot...

Yeah, right. Neither would never have made it past the paparazzi for such a rendezvous. Too bad...John-John and Di would have made a terrific couple ;-)

Yet more evidence that she was a narcisistic, out of touch slattern with a borderline personality disorder.

We've already had one of those as first lady. Don't need another, thanks.

I'm not tying to Kennedy bash or anything. Really. But, did anyone else ever get the feeling that JFK Jr was gay?

Maybe it's just my envy of his prettyboy image. But that's the impression I always had. Nice fellow ...
