JFK Slept with Interns

She was 19, working as a White House intern when she first met President Kennedy. It was the beginning of an 18-month affair that the now grandmother kept under wraps for more than 40 years.

The New York Post this weekend reports on the tell-all book “Once Upon a Secret: My Affair with President John F. Kennedy and Its Aftermath” that will be published by Random House on Wednesday.

The Post says it bought a copy of the book, by Mimi Alford, at a Manhattan bookstore.

Alford, who was a 19-year-old debutante working at the White House for the summer, was known at the time as Mimi Beardsley.

She did not divulge the secret, even to her family, until her name was revealed eight years ago when a biography of Kennedy was published with portions from a 1964 oral history that mentioned the affair.

Alford’s agent, Mark Reiter, told the New York Times in 2009 that Alford was stunned when the affair came to light in the tabloids and decided to write her account to “take control” of the story.

Alford will be interviewed on NBC’s “Rock 30″ on Wednesday night.
