    Long story short. My cat Mimi (she is actually a he), thought he was a girl when they lived in my backyard for almost a year, is going in for major surgery tomorrow. I was vetless at the time I decided to bring her in. I took her to an holistic vet, to be sure she was fixed and didn't have anything she could spread to my 2 other kitties (now down to 1) and an over all healthcare check up. I told the vet about her consistent cough and he said "sometimes cats just cough". I believed it, due...

    She always called him “Mr. President” — not Jack. He refused to kiss her on the lips when they made love. But Mimi Alford, a White House intern from New Jersey, was smitten nonetheless. She was in the midst of an 18-month affair with the most powerful man in the world, sharing not only John F. Kennedy’s bed but also some of his darkest and most intimate moments. In her explosive new tell-all, “Once Upon a Secret: My Affair with President John F. Kennedy and Its Aftermath,” Alford, now a 69-year-old grandmother and retired New York City church administrator, sets...

    MARIAH Carey has spoken out to address rumors about her sexuality. In a new interview with The Advocate magazine, the singer — who’s expecting her first child with husband Nick Cannon — insists she isn’t bisexual. “If it makes somebody happy to say that, then whatever, but that’s not the reality,” she said.”I don’t have a discriminatory policy of who I’m friends with, so yes, I’m friends with women who are gay — gay, straight, it doesn’t matter to me. So I don’t get upset when I hear that, because it is what it is. I guess I could lie...

    Mimi Beardsley Alford, a retired New York church administrator who had an affair with John F. Kennedy while she was an intern in the White House, is breaking a silence of more than 40 years to tell her story in a memoir to be published by Random House. Ms. Alford’s secret was initially divulged six years ago when a biography of Kennedy was published with portions from a 1964 oral history that described the president’s 18-month sexual affair with a young intern named Mimi Beardsley. The Daily News tracked her down and discovered that she was Marion Fahnestock, who was...

With a reputation for being one of the most demanding A-listers ever, she herself admits: "I guess I am a diva in many ways. I can be difficult and a little bit rigid about what I want." But then, amazingly, she says: "I don't think I'm demanding enough." But, as David Thomas reveals, it's hard to imagine just how much more demanding Mariah...

    Yes, America, there was a Mimi, a teenage cuddle for President John Kennedy back in 1962 and '63. But there was also a Pam, a Priscilla, a Jill (actually, two of them), a Janet, a Kim, a Mary and a Diana I can think of offhand. The Kennedy sex industry will march on. Sharing the sheets with J.F.K. seems to have become a badge of honor — and perhaps a route to publishing riches. But beware of boasting or true confessions: I've never met anybody who was a witness in the bedroom. It is all circumstantial — or was, until...

    The story featuring the grandmother in New York City who at age 19 sported about with President Kennedy is attracting about as much attention as the proverbial "Small Earthquake in Chile." There is this difference: When small earthquakes are reported, they aren't met with smiles and half-giggles. — There goes Talcahuano again! is met with fatalistic acceptance of fractious acts of nature. What we got in the matter of the grandmother was Tee Hee time, led by Nora Ephron in the New York Times. The tone of her op-ed tells it all, the accepted view of presidential intern-sex by worldly...

    Selling a book has everything to do with getting sudden, splashy attention. The most effective way to do that is to combine a couple of hot words like "intern" and "president" — then sit back and watch the show. The media will do the rest. That's what happened last week with the story of yet another "revelation" that John F. Kennedy was as horny a dog as Clinton ever tried to be. The end result was a great deal of tabloid clamor and TV bubble talk about a biography of Kennedy that contains far more interesting and new information about...

    Ex-President Bill Clinton and his defenders are reveling in the discovery that President John F. Kennedy had a Monica Lewinsky of his own, with Clinton himself set to capitalize on the find during a personal appearance at Boston's JFK Library later this month designed to rehabilitate his scandal-scarred legacy. Adding to the Clintonista's delight, Kennedy's Monica, Mimi Beardsley, was just 19-years-old at the time she cavorted in the White House - a full three years younger than Lewinsky when she earned her presidential kneepads. But as welcome as the news of Kennedy's intern certainly is for some, the way...

For 41 years.</p> <p>We are well beyond shock that a president of the United States might have a dalliance with a young woman half his age. Bill and Monica lowered that bar. What startles, in this era of shameless, streaming confessionals, is that America still harbors individuals who prefer privacy to infamy.</p>

    They say a woman always knows - and Jacqueline Kennedy was no exception. The queen of Camelot was heart-wrenchingly aware of the sexual affairs President John Kennedy engaged in during his years in the White House, a new book reveals. In "An Unfinished Life: John F. Kennedy, 1917-1963," author Robert Dallek details how the President tried to satisfy a voracious appetite for sex by bedding a string of party girls and staffers. In "An Unfinished Life: John F.

    Among the elite young socialites of Wheaton College in the early 1960s, Mimi Beardsley was part of the most envied clique - the most attractive, wealthiest, brightest and most charming girls at the toney school south of Boston. That she could sign herself out on weekends with the words that she would be traveling with ``The President of the United States'' only added to her status. No one then imagined the truth, that the demure former White House intern, now known as Marion ``Mimi'' Fahnestock, was having an extended affair with President John F. Kennedy. It was a secret she...

    Ex-President Bill Clinton will discuss his legacy at Boston's John F. Kennedy Presidential Library on May 28, in an event announced just hours after news broke that Kennedy, like Clinton, carried on a sexual relationship with a White House intern. "Senator Edward M. Kennedy will introduce President Clinton, who will engage in a wide-ranging conversation with presidential historian Michael Beschloss," the Kennedy Library said, in a statement posted to it's Web site on Tuesday. "President Clinton will reflect upon his own legacy and some of the central themes related to President Kennedy including the role of the U.S. in...

  • JFK & Mimi: Why it matters

    It was the early 1960s, on the cusp of the sexual revolution, when a 19-year-old White House intern named Mimi Beardsley commenced a sexual relationship with President John F. Kennedy. She was not the only woman to have an affair with JFK, nor he the last President to dally with an intern. Yet the unearthing of the long-buried secret does matter. Like it or not, care or not, it's a piece of American history. Some people think it should have remained hidden. Not Mimi. Marion Fahnestock, now 60 and living on the upper East Side, confirmed her identity to the...
