RFK Jr.ís wife hangs herself
NYPost ^ | 05/17/2012 | Celona, Smith, and Soltis

Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s estranged wife, Mary, who battled her husband’s rumored philandering by turning to alcohol and prescription drugs, hanged herself in a barn on their Westchester estate yesterday, sources told The Post.

The 52-year-old mother of four — the latest victim of a family dynasty cursed with tragedies — may have taken her own life because she was haunted by her broken marriage, her friends lamented.

“She was deeply troubled, abusing alcohol and prescription meds,” a close family friend said. “She had cause. She was used up and tossed away by Bobby. That was awful.”

There should be a PSA that warns:

Don’t drink and drive.
Don’t smoke.

Don’t marry a Kennedy............

If memeory serves, she was dating Bobby while he was married to his first wife.

Karma...maybe.

Family curse...not so much as simply a family mired in immorality.

You really have to be in some deep trouble to hang yourself. Women don’t hang themselves....they take pills.

I feel so sorry for this woman to have been in such sad shape to do this to herself.

She did get pregnant while he was still married to his first wife. She should have been preparing for the same results with her marriage.

She married the scum bag one month after his divorce from his first wife. She also grew up with the Kennedy family, it’s not like she didn’t know what she was getting. RIP anyway you poor pitiful soul.

The family is not cursed.

You’re looking for a conspiracy?

Honestly, I doubt it. When Joe Sr. was alive, I would believe it. That wad not a nice man.

I doubt the younger generation would have the brains to pull off a murder and make it look like suicide. They also don’t have the ambition.

Used up and tossed away by Bobby?

Um, when she was able to break free from the dastardly family by divorcing Bobby, why didn’t she run without looking back?

Money? No amount would compare with the freedom of leaving the toxicity of the Kennedys.
This is family that has serious issues due to the way they were raised, starting with Joe Sr.

That said, she was an addict, depressed and probably codependent as h*ll. Had she sought some intensive therapy, she may be alive today...or not.

Oh, they were still married and merely “estranged”? If so, SHE might have filed for divorce and kicked his sorry arse to the curb.

"Another Kennedy that won’t be getting into Heaven."

I have no doubt that she will be judged perfectly, and in its perfection, that judgment will be far beyond any of our comprehension.

Do God's work, not His job.

No, I simply mistrust and disbelieve EVERYTHING reported by Big Media, especially when it has anything at all, even tangentially, to do with politics.

A good friend of mine hanged himself back in 1980. He was a very heavy drinker and did it to get attention from the girl he was living with. She was going out with another guy. He downed a bottle of Southern Comfort beforehand. I’ll bet her blood will show an extremely high alcohol and drug content.

What do you call an unmarried musician?

Homeless.

Even if they are a drug-addicted, wife beating creep, it still beats a Kennedy.

I am with you on this one. All (in and related to that family) are selfish egotisitic no-good-doers, always use OTHERS’ money for them smart people to distribute as they see fit.

The image of their ‘fighting for injustice and the poor’ is just that, they only use ‘those beneath them’ to further their image. They don’t really CARE for thoes they champion.
