Like sons, like father. How Joe Kennedy, 60, flaunted his decade-long affair with his 24-year-old secretary in front of wife Rose, who tolerated his cheating with the help of tranquilizers
Ronald Kessler, a former Washington Post and Wall Street Journal investigative reporter, is the New York Times bestselling author of 20 books, including ‘The Sins of the Father: Joseph P. Kennedy and the Dynasty He Founded’ and most recently ‘The First Family Detail: Secret Service Agents Reveal the Hidden Lives of the Presidents.’During his lifetime, Joseph P. Kennedy, the founder of the Kennedy dynasty, was described in print as a Horatio Alger hero and chaste Roman Catholic. The former U.S. ambassador to the United Kingdom, who died in 1969 at the age of 81, was usually pictured with his wife Rose and one or more of his nine children, including President John F. Kennedy.Published pictures never showed his well-sculpted, green-eyed Hyannis Port secretary, Janet Des Rosiers, who was his mistress for nine years. A sugar-coated, self-censored account of her affair with Joe Kennedy has appeared in her self-published book ‘A Good Life.’But when she revealed the affair for the first time in an interview for my book ‘The Sins of the Father: Joseph P. Kennedy and the Dynasty He Founded,’ Des Rosiers gave me the real story with intimate details, along with her unvarnished opinion of Rose.
At the age of 24, Janet Des Rosiers, who later married and became Janet Des Rosiers Fontaine, had a creamy complexion, green eyes, brown hair, and gorgeous legs. She never failed to get second glances. In retrospect, Des Rosiers decided, that was what Joe had been looking for in a secretary.’He was very taken with me,’ Des Rosiers recalled in her alluring voice. ‘He made up his mind right then I would be his.’In December 1948, three months after he had hired her as his secretary, Joe seduced her.Their first encounter was in the two-bedroom house he rented for her in West Palm Beach, about 10 minutes from the Kennedy home in Palm Beach. When Joe came to see her there around 8 one evening, he began kissing and undressing her. She was not surprised. He had begun referring to her quarters as ‘our’ home. Their affair would last three times longer than Joe’s affair with actress Gloria Swanson.When Joe seduced Des Rosiers, she was a virgin. ‘Joe was not surprised that I had not had sex,’ she said. ‘He taught me everything.’Des Rosiers understood that Joe could be ruthless, but she never saw that side of him.’He was fun, he was warm, he was thoughtful, never demanding, very considerate, and very gentle,’ she said. ‘It wasn’t very difficult to fall in love with him. He was very charming. He overwhelmed me.’He was also ‘well-endowed.’Joe and Des Rosiers would meet for assignations in her apartment in Hyannis, in the rented house in West Palm Beach, in Joe’s apartment in New York or in Boston, or in Joe’s villa when they traveled to the Riviera for the summer. When Joe Kennedy’s wife Rose was away, as she often was, Joe would insist that Des Rosiers move into the Hyannis Port home and have sex with him in his bedroom.
‘Sometimes, I would just move in for a week or two,’ she said. ‘The servants assumed what was going on, but they all liked me. I think they were glad because they adored him, and anything that made him happy they approved of.’Even though Joe was 60 when he and Des Rosiers began the affair, they made love as often as once a day.’The lovemaking went on for hours,’ she said. ‘There was joy and ecstasy and laughter and giggles, eating chocolate cake and drinking milk at midnight in the kitchen,’ Des Rosiers said.In June 1952, Joe bought the Marlin, a 56-foot, two-propeller yacht that could reach 32 knots. Most of their lovemaking occurred there, as Frank Wirtanen piloted the boat. Back home, Rose busied herself going to church or writing reminder notes to herself.’We used to go out on the Marlin many afternoons,’ Des Rosiers recalled. ‘I’d take the work and Mathilda [a maid] would pack a lunch.’ After Joe dictated a few letters, they would have a Dubonnet, then a gourmet lunch. They would repair to Joe’s cabin.Sometimes they swam off a secluded Nantucket beach or went angling for blue fish. Rose hated the boat. She went out on it only once, Des Rosiers recalled.Des Rosiers concluded that Rose was aware of Joe’s affair with her and with others such as Gloria Swanson. She decided that Rose not only tolerated Joe’s philandering but approved of it, since it took pressure off her.’She must have known I was around all the time and not unattractive,’ Des Rosiers said. ‘I used to massage Joe’s scalp and neck with Rose in the living room…I don’t know what she thought her husband was made of.’Des Rosiers recalled that midway through their affair Joe, Rose, and some of Joe’s friends were having lunch in the dining room in Hyannis Port. Des Rosiers was in her office off the living room, but she could hear Rose’s shrill voice.’I heard Mrs. Kennedy say, ‘Men always fall in love with their secretaries.’ She said it in a way so that I didn’tfeel any reference to me,’ Des Rosiers said. ‘She didn’t say it with any malice. Then Joe got a very importanttelephone call. When he entered my office, I said jokingly, “Oh, oh, the jig’s up.” The man absolutely fell apart laughing. He roared out loud.’Joe called Rose ‘Mother.’ He never confided in Des Rosiers what he thought of their marriage. ‘I never heard him be impolite or raise his voice with her,’ Des Rosiers said. ‘There was no undercurrent of hostility. He seemed to respect her. They got along well, like friends. In that way, the household was amicable.’It wasn’t a normal husband-and-wife relationship. I think they had given that up a long time ago, including sex. I don’t think he loved her.’ In fact, they rarely kissed, and then only on the cheek.Des Rosiers was annoyed by Rose’s habit of pinning notes to herself. When Rose hassled her servants, it upset her. ‘Mrs. Kennedy carried a little paper pinned to her chest, and she went from room to room looking for things that had to be done or improved upon,’ Des Rosiers recalled. For example, she would write that a cushion had to be recovered or an old magazine had to be discarded.’She believed that every free moment of your life had to be occupied with learning or work,’ Des Rosiers said. ‘She would be having lunch with her grandchildren, and it was like a school. Rose didn’t walk into a room to relax and enjoy the setting. It was to make a note of this or that has to be done.’
Rose had a penurious streak, which often found expression in how she treated the servants.’Did you pay her for that hour? She didn’t work that hour,’ Rose would tell Des Rosiers, who was paymaster as well as secretary and mistress.’Rose was penny-wise and pound foolish,’ she said. ‘She would spend millions on her dresses over time, and then get upset at me if a servant was paid for an hour he didn’t work.’On a trip to France, Rose berated Des Rosiers because she had bought too many boxes of facial tissues and rolls of toilet paper to be used once they got there. ‘She would pick on the help,’ Des Rosiers said. ‘If you’re a good Christian woman, you should be compassionate toward those who serve you night and day.’Most of all, Rose seemed concerned about her looks. She would often run around the house with a cosmetic mask on her face.One afternoon, Joe’s chauffeur was driving Joe, Rose, and Des Rosiers in Joe’s Rolls-Royce in Vence in the south of France. ‘We drove to Matisse’s Chapel,’ Des Rosiers said. ‘She put a black mask over her eyes so her face muscles could relax.’This was really beautiful scenery, which she missed.’At the same time, Rose constantly practiced her French, using language records. Her accent remained dreadful.Given how much time she was away from the Hyannis Port home, Des Rosiers concluded that Rose did not like to be there. ‘She was at Palm Beach a lot in the winter,’ she said. ‘But she went to Paris a couple of times a year or to Vienna or Switzerland, always by herself. Then she went to see her mother in Boston.’
After Jack became president, he asked Des Rosiers to work for him as one of his secretaries in the White House. But she was unhappy with her position, which required working from 8:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. After a few weeks, she told Jack she wanted to leave. ‘He said, ‘You know, Janet, if I had known what this job was like, maybe I wouldn’t have worked so hard for it.’Jack asked her what she planned to do. She told him she was going to Paris for a year. “Would you like to be secretary to the American ambassador in Paris? I’ve just appointed him,” the president said. So he made an appointment with James E. Gavin. “In five minutes I had the job,” she said.
MORE CHARLIE SHEEN DIRT BAG FROM HIS FORMER PA:Porn stars, crack cocaine, private jets, HIV and me: Charlie Sheen’s PA reveals the life with the out-of-control star (who had a VERY unusual use for dry skin cream)
High on drugs and amid a heavy drinking session, a shirtless Charlie Sheen played with a large knife inside his ‘party den’, showing off to his audience of paid-for porn stars and friends.Then, as the crack cocaine and alcohol finally took their toll, the Hollywood superstar made a slip with the blade, slashing his own leg causing blood to pour out.It was perhaps a worryingly typical moment for the renowned hard-partying star who’s high octane lifestyle had begun to spiral out of control in 2011.But this time something else was wrong.As blood spattered on to the plush carpet and on to an iPad, one of Sheen’s friends jokingly lunged forwardto touch the bright red bodily fluid, shouting ‘that’s tiger blood, Charlie that’s tiger blood’.
This comes a week after Sheen – amid a maelstrom of rumor and speculation – made the shocking admission to Matt Lauer on the Today Show that he is HIV positive.Han, 34, who began to work for Sheen in early 2011 and traveled the world with him, recalls the emotional moment his boss confided in him about being HIV positive, saying, ‘I f***ed up’.’I remember we had been down to Cabo in Mexico on a trip in December 2012.’There was a group of us: me, Charlie, porn star Georgia Jones, two other girls, a couple of friends and security.’The plan was to spend New Year’s Eve in Cabo at a private villa but we wanted to fly back early to avoid a storm and we got back to LA the night before.’We celebrated New Year’s at Charlie’s house instead, just a small gathering.’I remember I had got in to some drama with one of Charlie’s body guards, he had been giving me a hard time and it upset me.’That night Charlie took me to one side to ask what was wrong.’We were sitting at his kitchen table and I unburdened myself and got a bit emotional, I told him all my problems.’We were just being very honest with each other, I was explaining my feelings towards what was wrong withthe body guard and he just started to talk about his problems and said life isn’t perfect.’Then he just came out with it, ‘I’m HIV positive’, he was so blasé about it.
I was shocked. He was sad to have to tell me, he didn’t want to tell me, he wanted to empathize with me.’He was very strong about it, he said ‘it’s okay, don’t cry, I’m not dying, things will get better.”He wanted to reassure me that he’s got the right doctor and he was being looked after. For him it isn’t a death sentence.’I felt horrible, I felt like I knew a secret that only a handful of people knew on this entire planet.’At that moment I didn’t care about the body guards any more.’Han said he asked Sheen if he knew how he’d contracted HIV but the star simply responded: ‘I f***ed up’.The former assistant says the revelation brought him and the former Two and a Half Men star closer together as friends and he promised to help his boss through the difficult time.’I felt closer to him, I felt like we were better friends after that,’ Han said.Han says he took charge of making sure Sheen took his medication and would leave three anti-viral pills in Sheen’s bathroom every night for him to take the following morning.’I would wake him up in the morning, make Charlie a coffee the way he likes it, black, two scoops of sugar and then either text him or knock on his door,’ he said.’If the pills had gone then I knew he had taken them, I knew it was important that he didn’t miss any days. Sometimes I would physically hand the meds to him, putting them in his mouth. He always expressed his displeasure.’Han said taking the anti-viral pills was a huge chore for Sheen and they made him feel constantly sick.’The pills had side effects, he would feel nauseous and would skip meals, he’s not a pill guy at all,’ he said
‘He was paying $1,500 a day for a private chef but the meals would go untouched, sat in the refrigerator wrapped in foil.’Han would regularly pick up brown paper bags with Sheen’s pills inside from the office of his personal physician Dr Robert Huizenga.He also scheduled blood tests for the actor – star of hit movies including Wall Street, Platoon and Major League.’A nurse came round to the house to take his blood,’ he said.’I remember the first blood test I scheduled was in February 2013 and it came back showing the HIV was undetectable. Charlie was very happy.’Buoyed by the test results, Han said Sheen continued life as normal, including his party lifestyle.The assistant said he often joined in on the partying but his involvement stopped short of having sex with any of the porn stars that littered Sheen’s $7.5 million Beverly Hills mansion.’It was Charlie’s money so I would hang out in a different room with anyone else who was at the party and we’d leave him to it,’ he said.Sometimes he would miss the tests, I would have to get the nurse to come to hotels sometimes. But thankfully he never missed taking his pills.’His schedule was so busy, when he was filming Anger Management in 2012 to 2014 he didn’t have much time to himself.’He’d get done with filming and there would be a girl waiting for him at home. He didn’t go out anywhere in the week and stayed at home weekends watching baseball, but he did love to go on vacation.’While I worked with him he went to Iceland, Scotland, Cabo and Colombia.’
Han said Sheen was taking drugs, including crack cocaine, and drinking heavily throughout that time.’I tried to keep out of it, yes they were crazy times but Charlie was still a good guy,’ he explains.’Yes there were porn stars, sometimes four at a time, but it wasn’t as if Charlie was having sex in front of his staff, he kept that private.’I used to see him taking drugs in his room and in the party den and he drank Scotch and chain smoked.’Han says Sheen liked to play music by Slash, the former Guns N Roses guitarist and also a neighbor on theplush Mulholland Estates, but most of all he loved to entertain his guests and make them laugh.In his professional life the long hours filming Anger Management began to take its toll on Sheen and Han was worried for his health.’That show was hard on him, he would be in every scene and have to memorize every line. He worked hard,’ he said.’I don’t think any one else could have done what he did, pumping out 100 episodes while dealing with HIV.’As a friend I made Charlie take the pills. He’s someone I really cared about, he had done a lot for me so it was only right for me to make sure he was doing the right things to keep himself alive and keep the levels undetectable.’Han also defends Sheen over his supposed ‘meltdown’ in 2011 before and after he was fired by CBS from hit show Two and a Half Men.
Show producers justified his firing by painting the actor as a self-destructive, sick addict who was deteriorating mentally and physically.But Han says Sheen’s often bizarre outbursts were scripted, written down in the actor’s note book, and uttered to ‘get a reaction’ and to show his contempt for the show.The eccentric star even hired a stenographer to take down his thoughts which he wanted to repeat in public or during interviews.Han said: ‘Behind the scenes Charlie wasn’t as crazy as people might think, the so called meltdown kind of turned into a huge publicity stunt.’He wanted people to take notice, but it backfired in the sense people began to think he was a little crazy.’But he was fine, he was taking it all in, he wanted to get attention for what he was saying so he was coming out with some crazy stuff.’Sheen gave a series of interviews during this time in which he coined the term ‘winning’ – a phrase that has since become synonymous with Sheen’s meltdown – and claimed he had ‘tiger blood’ running through his veins.Interestingly, Han reveals that Sheen hadn’t plucked the famous ‘winning’ catchphrase out of thin air, in fact he had borrowed it from a baseball star.
Han said even when they were in a remote part of Cartagena, Colombia in November 2011, Sheen was recognized.’We were up on a mountain top and there was a guy walking his donkey and he casually mentioned to Charlie, ‘hey, that show sucks without you’. That blew me away.’That’s when I realized this guy has some star power, he reaches out to so many people.’Han says Sheen is ‘doing well’ since he came out on The Today Show to announce he is HIV positive.But the star is frustrated by the attacks in the media.Han said: ‘Charlie is doing well, but he’s disheartened by the people who are selling him out and by the rumors and half truths being circulated.’He’s got enough to deal with without these constant attacks. He’s taking it one step at a time.’
