1962, The EMKs
1965, Joan & Ted having dinner with other Senators and their wives (like Birch and Marvella Bayh). On the first pic, you can see John Tunney, Ted’s roomate when he attended the University of Virginia School of Law and a fellow Senator (California).
Did Rose "my son could do no wrong" Kennedy give Joan any advice during the Chappaquiddick?
LOL well since Rose seemed to have PhD in psychology, she most likely acted as if it never happened. In fact, she blamed Joey Gargan, Ted’s cousin and the son of her sister who died at a rather young age, who was there with him. She even disinherited him. I don’t think Rose ever had deep talks with anyone. All she talked about was grammar and appearances.
On July 22, 1969, Joan & Ted attended Mary Jo Kopechne’s funeral. This must’ve been very difficult for Joan, who was not supposed to attend in the first place. Joan was very mad at Ted’s political staff because she felt that they only cared about “how it look(ed)” (seems like Ted was on that boat too smh) and she was so very sorry that a young woman had died. Ted made Joan call the Kopechnes to say how sorry she was about the whole thing… This is one of the things that make me hate Ted.
1965, Let’s say goodbye to daddy ! Look at Kara giving her daddy a big hug, she’s on a mission ! :3 And on the second gif, Joan’s like “What ?” and then she sees the camera and smiles lol.
Joan’s style | “(1966) She is glamorous. She is a fashion plate. She does compare and is a sort of fashion successor to Jackie Kennedy. “Often when I have to go somewhere in a hurry, I set my own hair”, she says. She rolls it up and wraps it in a scarf. But whatever she does with it, on her it looks good.
As for being a clotheshorse, Joan laughs and says : “I don’t have a tremendous amount of clothes. I have a few favorite outfits that I wear all the time. Anyone who knows me sees me in the same dress over and over. I wear an outfit a long time and when it begins to wear out, I like to have it copied in a different fabric or color”. But it is true that Joan has started to design some of her clothes, just as Jackie did when she was a senator’s wife. “Shopping is a luxury in time that I can’t afford. But I love to browse”.
OMG TED ! I see you… ;)
