My friend said she’s going as Maria Shriver for Halloween, so I’ll make her my icon.
(Can you pick out Eunice?)
Maria Shriver was the daughter of Sargent Shriver (from whence she begot her name) and Eunice Kennedy Shriver. Eunice Kennedy Shriver was the fifth child in the most famous of all of the Kennedy Clans. All of her older siblings died horrible deaths (JFK, Joseph and Kathleen), or were lobotomized (Rose). Her little brother Bobby was shot while he was walking through the kitchen of the hotel. By the end of the 1960s, she was the oldest child remaining to Joseph P. Kennedy; father, lover, and former ambassador to England.
(There’s Maria, second from the left)
In other words, Maria Shriver is the niece of JFK, and the first cousin of JFK Jr.
The scary part about all of the information above is that I didn’t even need to look it up on Wikipedia. I knew it all already after reading Reckless Youth by Nigel Hamilton, a brash biography of JFK in his early years. Good read, highly recommend.
