That Courtney lay in a Manhattan apartment with a broken neck from skiing deterred her not at all: Ethel gave him Courtney’s address, Hill went to visit her, and the two promptly fell in love. “The combination of those,” he adds, “is an almost unparalleled examination into the forces that affect our lives, a much more serious one than you could imagine. The Midwest may have worked another change on Christopher: he’s more open and relaxed than his brothers. “In New York they’ll plead out more than 80 percent of the cases,” the professor said. Of the 28 cousins who form the family’s third generation after the patriarch who made the Kennedys the best-known Irish-Catholic family in America—the closest thing to a royal family we have—10 are “R.F.K.’s.” The R.F.K.’s have also been implicated in the most trouble, with a rap sheet disproportionate to their numbers: one son’s death by drug overdose, another’s arrest for heroin possession, and the involvement of Joe himself in reckless driving that left a girl paralyzed for life, along with a general trend of overindulgence among the sons that has sent several of them into rehab.

I had a crew, but … if I’d just had him and nobody else, I’d have had no fear.”. Yet working for Murdoch makes Doug one of the few R.F.K.’s who can say they have succeeded without any family help—which may be the point. A hardball tactic like that might seem implausible for an advocate of 12-step programs who is, as one Kennedy relative puts it, “the sweetest human being that you have ever met,” except that this would not be the first murky situation to which Michael Skakel was linked. The only time the family intervenes is when there’s an embarrassment in the press—then there’s the circling of the wagons. As for Michael, says the family friend, “Ethel always felt that he was a lot like Bobby. Max and Douglas and I never rode, because Max is allergic to horses.… Doug is ambivalent, and I can barely hold on to a frigging horse. 1968). “Like, my little sister, Rory, loves to horseback-ride. “A lot of people have had brothers who may have done things that they regret, and you don’t blame it on the brother.” And whatever Michael has or hasn’t done, she says loyally, “I’m crazy about him.

Has she been distressed, I ask, at how the press played up the few passages about her marriage and Joe? Yet why is it that when something goes wrong with Kennedys the reaction seems so abnormal: that circling of the wagons, that blindness to the moral ramifications of what has occurred? They come back to the surface; they’ve got dozens of lobsters. The hard part for this family,” adds the observer, “is that there wasn’t enough attention paid, right from the start. Whatever the reason, they tend, like Kathleen, to be more open as a result: only Rory, the youngest sister, adamantly refuses to meet with me. Why marry a Kennedy?”, When Vicki reportedly learned of Michael’s interest in the baby-sitter, in 1995, he blamed alcohol and enlisted in a rehab program. The next day comes the statement from Robert Popeo, Paul Verrochi’s lawyer, that the Kennedys have been waiting for.

Right now, he says meaningfully, he just lives one day at a time. “It was Bobby who did drugs first, at 13, and got David hooked.” Horowitz says he made a deal with Bobby, who introduced him to the family, not to mention Bobby’s own drug use in the book—a pact Bobby presumed to include his drug taking with Lem Billings, the old family friend who had become a sort of surrogate father to several of the young R.F.K.’s. “You know, I wouldn’t say that,” Kathleen responds, bridling.

What I remember is reading Richie Rich comics and all of us thinking, Gee, we’d like to be Richie Rich.”, By then, however, Joe had been at the wheel of a Jeep on Nantucket which overturned on a joyride, paralyzing his brother David’s Hyannis girlfriend, Pam Kelly. Wielding Kennedy charisma, Joe persuaded foreign oil companies to sell him modest allotments of crude, had refineries process the fuel and sell all the products except for heating oil, and then used the profits to subsidize sales of cut-rate heating oil to low-income families. Over the years, he has shown another brand of courage as well: clean and sober since 1983, he has, according to friends, helped literally dozens of addicts join and stay with A.A. “The A.A. reliance on a higher being has saved his life, he feels,” says a friend. Welcome. “He just worked freelance, but he was good.” One day, however, an invitation to a party for his brother Joe came to the office addressed to Douglas; when one of the reporters opened it and ran the news in a gossip column, Douglas quit. Many were further annoyed to think that a congressman, whenever he found out the truth of the matter, would fail to act in the girl’s best interests by helping to end the relationship. The surprise is that Joe, who seems to be stepping up his political career, is still so press-shy. She came from a large, wealthy family with a mother as fiercely Catholic as Rose Kennedy. Instead, after receiving the reports, Skakel lawyers held on to them and reminded the investigators of their confidentiality agreement. “Ethel said, ‘This is Joe’s time,’ very much in the tradition of the second generation.” Instead, Michael took over Citizens Energy and began to expand the company with an entrepreneurial flair that Joe had seemed to lack.

By the time they married, according to the friend, Vicki’s view of men had been soured by her father, Frank Gifford, who had left her mother when Vicki was 18, married a second wife, whom Vicki came to like, and then left her to marry the now famous Kathie Lee. “My mom says, ‘Get off and give the microphone to someone else.’ ”.

You do whatever you can get away with, and if the family’s powerful enough, you fix it.” But as the R.F.K.’s grew up at Hickory Hill, the gracious Virginia estate purchased by their grandfather for Jack and Jackie, then passed on to Bobby and Ethel, they were shaped far more, of course, by their mother, who brought with her the complex imprint of her own family, the Skakels. “I have no interest in participating in that kind of story,” he snaps.

Loyalty is the virtue Kennedys put above all others. “At one point … [she] was saying the relationship began when she was 16, because she thought that that was illegal.
