The Truth About Jackie Kennedys Turbulent Loving and Dramatic Bond with Sister Lee Radziwill

The Truth About Jackie Kennedys Turbulent Loving and Dramatic Bond with Sister Lee Radziwill

Lee Radziwill — a former princess, interior decorator, actress, publicist, patron of many arts and close friend to of many famous artists, outlived nearly everyone else in her life, including her three husbands and the successive scions of the Kennedys, with whom her family became forever intertwined nearly seven decades ago.

“A remarkable girl,” author Truman Capote raved of Radziwill for a 1976 PEOPLE cover story.

Said architect Philip Johnson for the same story: “Her knowledge of people, her warmth, her glow — outgoing and delicious!”

Despite her own long and storied life, studded with its own jet-setting surprises, victories and defeats, Radziwill could not escape comparison with her older sister, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, wife of President John F. Kennedy and the most famous first lady of the 20th century.

An icon herself, Jackie’s successes in some ways seemed perfectly sized to overshadow her younger sister, who died earlier this week at her New York City home at age 85.

Radziwill was a fixture of the world’s best-dressed lists in her time, but Jackie’s style has been celebrated in museums. And Jackie’s second husband, Greek shipping tycoon Aristotle “Ari” Onassis, had been quite close to Radziwill before he wed her big sister. (“I am very happy to have been at the origin of this marriage,” Radziwill told reporters at the time.)

Born not quite four years apart, the only daughters of Janet Norton Lee and stockbroker John Vernou “Black Jack” Bouvier lived most of their lives in the spotlight. Their relationship has long been the subject of curiosity.

The two could be quite close, dating back to their shared childhood in New York City and East Hampton and attending Miss Porter’s School. They shared a magical summer in Italy when Radziwill was 18, touring Italy and Paris — a trip they recounted in the 1974 memoir One Special Summer.

But much later in life, as adults, they could go years with the barest amount of contact. They finally reconnected in the last months of Jackie’s life, in 1994.

They lived through such turbulent times and had a turbulent bond to match.

“It was never sort of black and white,” Kennedy biographer J. Randy Taraborrelli tells PEOPLE. “There were always shades of grey, and when you try to

Queer Eye’s Karamo Brown Describes Learning He Had a 10-Year-Old Son I’m Getting Punked

Queer Eye’s Karamo Brown Describes Learning He Had a 10-Year-Old Son I’m Getting Punked

Karamo Brown‘s path to parenthood was certainly an unexpected one.

The Queer Eye star details his experience in his new memoir, Karamo: My Story of Embracing Purpose, Healing, and Hope, recalling the night he learned he had a 10-year-old son.

In 2006, just a few years after Brown’s stint on The Real World: Philadelphia, the reality star says he arrived at his home in Los Angeles “in a sort of stupor” as he came down from drugs he had just done and discovered an envelope at his doorstep.

“On the front page was ‘Texas Attorney General’s Office.’ The second page read, ‘Subpoena for Back Child Support,'” he writes. “I thought, Ashton Kutcher is inside my house. I’m getting punked!”

The court papers sought $230,000 in child support for a 10-year-old boy, but the Kutcher-less moment shocked him even further when he saw the name of his high school friend, Stephanie Brooks, with whom he’d had sex one time when he was 15, mentioned in the paperwork.

“I literally spit out the juice I was drinking,” he says. “Now I was fully freaking out.”

Five weeks later, a paternity test in Houston confirmed that Brown was indeed the father of Brooks’ 10-year-old son Jason, and they were about to meet for the very first time.

“A little voice in my head was saying, Karamo, you don’t have to do this. You’re a child, and you’re supposed to go in there and raise a child? Run for your life. At the same time, I thought, What if he needs me?”

“I was scared,” Brown, now 38, tells PEOPLE of that moment. “I realized that I created this child who I had no idea about that’s living there, that I now messed him up.”

But when he entered Brooks’ home, her whole family, including several children from another past relationship, was there.

“She called, ‘Jason! Come out here! Your dad’s here,'” Brown recalls. “Jason slowly walked around the corner. There’s something about the first moment of seeing your child. All the pieces of me that I felt were missing got sewn up the minute I saw his face. I looked at this little fourth-grade boy, and I thought, I can do this.”

They went bowling nearby, and soon, Brown upe

Sarah Hyland Cracks Joke About Khloé Kardashians Alleged Cheating Drama with Tristan Thompson

Sarah Hyland Cracks Joke About Khloé Kardashians Alleged Cheating Drama with Tristan Thompson

Sarah Hyland is cracking jokes at Khloé Kardashian‘s expense.

Hours after news broke that Kardashian’s boyfriend Tristan Thompson allegedly cheated on her with sister Kylie Jenner‘s best friend Jordyn Woods, Hyland, 28, shared her reaction on Twitter.

“Seems like Khloe is finally out of the Woods… that was too soon. I apologize,” Hyland wrote on Twitter referencing the 21-year-old model’s last name.

This isn’t the first time Hyland has commented on Kardashian, 34, and Thompson’s relationship ups and downs.

Back in April, after videos leaked of Thompson, 27, getting close to other women, just days before Kardashian gave birth to their first child together, baby girl True, Hyland revealed she was “traumatized.”

In a video shared on her Instagram Stories, Hyland said she was taking the “whole Khloé Kardashian cheating scandal… very personally.”

On Tuesday, TMZ and Hollywood Unlocked reported that Kardashian and the Cleveland Cavaliers player had split after he was unfaithful to her with Woods, who is also a member of the Good American squad, representing and previously modeling for Kardashian’s clothing brand.

Although Kardashian has yet to release a statement about the alleged incident, the mother of one is not remaining silent.

Kardashian responded to Hollywood Unlocked’s Instagram post — about her reported split from Thompson and cheating with Woods — by posting eight mouth talking emojis.

Kardashian’s best friend Malika Haqq also commented on the post, writing in all capital letters, “STRONG FACTS,” and big sister Kim Kardashian liked the Instagram post.

“Khloé found out yesterday about Tristan and Jordyn,” a source tells PEOPLE about Kardashian.

“The whole family is furious,” the source adds about the family. “They were blindsided.”

Within an hour of the reports, the NBA star tweeted a post saying, “FAKE NEWS,” seemingly denying the report. The tweet, though, has since been deleted.

Reps for Kardashian and Thompson did not immediately return PEOPLE’s requests for comment. Woods’ rep had no comment.

A source told PEOPLE that Thompson attended a house party on Sunday and allegedly made out with another guest, though the source did not know if that person was Wood

Miley Cyrus Pokes Fun at Shawn Mendes Calvin Klein Campaign Photo with Her Own Topless Shot

Miley Cyrus Pokes Fun at Shawn Mendes Calvin Klein Campaign Photo with Her Own Topless Shot

Miley Cyrus certainly can’t be tamed when it comes to trolling Shawn Mendes!

A week after the singers shared the Grammy stage for a duet, Cyrus, 26, couldn’t resist poking fun at Mendes on social media following his steamy modeling shots from the new Calvin Klein campaign.

The “In My Blood” singer, 20, stripped down to his skivvies in his debut as a model for the famed designer on Saturday, and while the Internet went wild for the sexy photos, Cyrus saw them as an opportunity.

The “Malibu” singer parodied the campaign by posting a topless shot on her social media accounts side-by-side with Mendes’ version. Both singers wore white Calvin Klein underwear, but to keep things PG, Cyrus covered both of their nipples with red hearts.

“Don’t leave your children with Miley,” the newly-wedded singer captioned the hilarious comparison shot, which featured her standing with both hands above her head.

Though Cyrus saw the funny side of Mendes’ steamy photos, which featured the singer and his six-pack abs lounging in a kitchen and on a chair wearing nothing but his Calvins, other stars were very impressed.

“Delete this before my gf sees this,” rapper Hoodie Allen wrote in the comments.

Drake Bell appeared to have the same thought, as he replied, “My gf already saw it…she has my permission.”

The swoon-worthy shots — which have more than 8.2 million likes on Instagram as of Tuesday evening — were also praised by stars like Jennifer Lopez, Ryan Tedder, Julia Michaels, Alex Rodriguez, Tom Daley, and Charlie Puth.

“Killin’ it,” Lopez wrote alongside three fire emojis.

Besides poking fun at each other on social media, Cyrus and Mendes have also spent a lot of time together on stage recently.

The talented pair teamed up to perform Mendes’ hit single “In My Blood” together onstage at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards on Feb. 10.
