Just a quick note ... poor Amy Winehouse. A very troubled girl, but such sad news.

Default Dancer: Lydia Lopokova

Lydia Lopokova (born Lidia Vasilyevna Lopukhova) was a Russian ballerina during the early 20th century. Her father, who was born a genuine 'serf', worked as the chief usher at the Alexandrinsky Theatre, so naturally the young Lydia wanted to be a dancer (as did her siblings). Lydia trained at the Imperial Ballet School, where she became a star pupil and she was chosen to join the Ballets Russes, on their European tour in 1910. Diaghilev knocked a year off her age and promoted her as a child star!

Whilst on the tour she accepted an American offer of ₤16,000 per month and after the summer tour left for the United States, where she remained for six years, enjoying tremendous success and legally changing her name to Lopokova in April 1914 ... apparently she had realised that she was never going to be a to dancer in Russia where the competition was fierce, and she wasn't really tall enough.

In America she was basically promoted as a novelty act on Broadway, and she eventually rejoined Diaghilev and the Ballets Russes, and her former partner Vaslav Nijinsky, in 1916 when they toured the USA, and later again in London. In 1921 she starred in a lavish London production of 'The Sleeping Beauty' staged by Diaghilev, in which she danced as both the Lilac Fairy and Princess Aurora. She then stayed in the UK working in various dance / ballet related activities. In 1933 she danced her last ballet role, as Swanilda in Coppélia, for the new Vic-Wells Ballet.

As well as being involved in English ballet, she appeared on the stage in London and Cambridge from 1928, and was a BBC presenter as well as appearing in a number of acting roles; she read "The Red Shoes" for a BBC broadcast in 1935 and later reprised it for a BBC television broadcast of the ballet. After her husbands death in 1946 she largely disappeared from public view (apart from the aforementioned broadcasts) and lived in Sussex until her death in 1981, aged 88. As usual its her 'private life' that provides the interest for this thread

While she was first in New York, she became 'engaged to be married' to the New York Morning Telegraph sportswriter Heywood Broun. In 1916 their engagement was broken off ... either by her or him depending on which version you believe. According to Fred Lieb, another sportswriter and a friend of Broun's at the time, Broun "caught the enchanting Lydia Lapopka in the lap, so to speak, of her Russian director. ... [Broun] walked east on one street, knocking over every garbage and trash can he passed. Then he walked west on the street giving it the same treatment. Just as he was getting really warmed up to the sport he ran into the hands of the law. Heywood spent the night in the hoosegow [jail] before friends bailed him out the next morning." ... i.e. she was caught 'In flagrante delicto' with another man, cowboy style

Actually, as Diaghilev's interests were very much the same as hers, boys, she wouldn't have been caught "in the lap so to speak" of "her Russian director," but much more likely that of the company's Italian business manager, Randolfo Barrocchi, to whom she was soon married to after this scandal. And again as usual, the shifty business manager was a "'glossy man of the world', who very quickly stole all her money and earnings, but again as usual for many of our girls, he also turned out to be a bigamist Once she had realised the enormity of her mistake, she embarked on a wartime (it was on a European tour), on-off love affair with the composer Stravinsky as his mistress, he was also 'married' at the time.

In 1919 she was in London when her marriage to Barrocchi broke down, and she 'disappeared' for a time (allegedly with a 'white' Russian general), as she had done once before in America. She then reappeared in 1921 when she was in 'The Sleeping Beauty', where she came to the attention of the economist John Maynard Keynes. According to contemporary reports he "sat every night in the stalls, enchanted by Lydia as the Lilac Fairy casting spells over the cradle", and the two soon became lovers, and they were married in 1925 (obviously once her 'divorce' from Barrocchi had been obtained ). What makes this marriage interesting is that Keynes had been swinging the same way as Diaghilev for years, in particular with the 'bisexual' painter Duncan Grant. "Until I see him carrying on with L," Grant wrote to Vanessa Bell, "I must give up trying to imagine what happens - it beggars my fancy" ... Those 'public schoolboy' educated Oxbridge Dons were all into 'bum, buggery and the lash' in those days. They remained married until Keynes death in 1947.

Trivia:
  • All the Lopukhov children became ballet dancers
  • Heywood Broun, later a member of the celebrated Algonquin Round Table coterie.
  • She became a friend of Picasso, who drew her many times.
  • Lopokova is represented as Terpsichore, the muse of dancing, in 'The Awakening of the Muses', a mosaic at the National Gallery, London, laid by Boris Anrep in 1933.
  • She maintained friendships with many members of London's cultural elite of the time, including T. S. Eliot and H.G. Wells.
  • She became Baroness Keynes when her husband was ennobled in 1942

Default Singer: Ashley Dupré

Ashley Dupré aka 'Ashley Alexandra Dupré' or 'Ashley Rae Maika DiPietro' (born Ashley Youmans), was a 'singer' when she shot to fame... but at the beginning she had the usual 'broken home' upbringing that many of the girls shared in common. She had claimed later on her 'Myspace' biography, that she left home at age 17 to escape a broken family home and abuse. This claim was challenged by her aunt, who said that "She never had a bad life when she was growing up. She had the best of everything: bicycles, clothing, O'Neill surf boards. ... She was always dressed to kill and got everything she wanted" ... so you pays your money and take your choice. In 2004, at the age of 19, Dupré moved to New York City in pursuit of a music career, as a singer, and worked as a waitress at a dance clubs to support herself. She apparently developed expensive tastes around this time (including Cartier and Louis Vuitton consumer goods and trips to Saint-Tropez, France), which she explained to friends were paid for by her guilty, but wealthy parents.

Dupré began singing professionally with a musician called Jerry Cooper who was also her boyfriend. "She had this huge voice for such a little girl", Cooper told MTV, "and so I just kind of went in and said 'Hey, come upstairs when you're done with this, and let's work on some songs'". She then claimed to have toured and recorded with Cooper's band, networking where she could, until 2005, when she formed a company named 'Pasche New York', to promote her music career. In the summer of 2006, she made an appearance in a music video for the song "Pop Off", performed by rapper Mysterious.

Speculation is that she may have earned between US$300,000 - US$1.4 million from the download sales of her singles on the web site 'Amie Street', but more conservative estimates said US$13,720. Dupré's music came to be featured in mash up 'YouTube' videos, blending her tracks with those of established artists. Dupré reportedly is now being represented by music manager Jerry Blair, who formerly worked for Mariah Carey, but any deal may have to await for her infamous reputation to lessen ..... OK no more teasing, as you can guess from the hints, she managed to get herself involved in a real humdinger of a scandal

At the age of 19, while she was working as a cocktail waitress at the Hotel Gansevoort in 2004, she also began working as an 'escort' on the side, using the alias 'Victoria'. In 2006, Dupré changed her legal name from 'Youmans' to her stepfather's name of 'DiPietro', but continued as an escort .... by now the escort agency was the 'Emperors Club VIP', and she was working under the alias 'Kristen'. So far, so getting away with it, but on February 13, 2008, she went to meet a trick at the Mayflower Hotel with New York ... it was New York Governor Eliot Spitzer.

Even so, all may have gone smoothly, but the meeting was monitored by Federal Investigators, who had initiated a wiretap after his bank had reported dodgy cash movements (as it turned out to the holding company for 'Emperors Club VIP'). The wiretap caught Dupré talking to the booker about other girls problems with Spitzer, but how she planned to 'handle' him. There were arrests made all round, but initially news reports and court documents did not identify the agency's clients, or the call girls by name. Then 'The New York Times' identified Spitzer as a client, and Dupré as the "Kristen" in the tapes ..... this revelation led Spitzer to announce his resignation as Governor.

Dupré was reportedly offered US $1 million by 'Hustler' magazine to pose nude, and received offers from 'Penthouse magazine' and 'Vivid Entertainment' .... however pictures of her, taken on a public beach aged just 18 (taken in 2003), circulated on the web as 'teasers' for a rather tame movie, which although legal in most countries, were not in some of the US states (18 is legal in the UK and Europe, as well as in Florida with consent) ... this just added to the media interest. In April 2008, Dupré filed suit against the web distribution company, alleging their exploitation of Dupré's name and image, and seeking US $10 million in punitive damages, but in July of that year she decided to drop the law suit after they released footage showing her agreeing to be filmed

In December 2009, she abandoned any further pretenses of victim-hood and became a sex columnist for the New York Post, “Ask Ashley”, and she then posed nude for the May 2010 issue of Playboy magazine. Currently she is believed to be teaming up with 'reality stars' Danielle Staub, Heidi Montag and Jake Pavelka for a reality show called 'Cafe Med'.

Then there were rumours of a sex tape ..... I have no idea if its true ... they look like her, and I have no reason to believe that they aren't

Quote:

"I just don't want to be thought of as a monster," Dupré told the New York Times newspaper at the time. "This has been a very difficult time. It's complicated."

Trivia:
  • Shortly after 'The New York Times' published their profile of Dupré, her single "Move Ya Body" set a record for how fast it commanded the top price on the music-download site AmieStreet.com, reaching the site's maximum of US$0.98 per download in five hours.
  • Another single, "What We Want", was played more than 3 million times on the Internet after the scandal erupted.
  • The 'Village Voice' called her "the most famous hooker in America".
  • Dupré was given legal immunity by the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, for her role in the Spitzer scandal in order to testify at the court hearings related to the 'Emperors Club VIP' prostitution ring.
Pictures:

She has no thread, but there are the odd postings as part of various Pl*yboy threads ... they repeated pictures on all of those posts that I looked at, so no apologies for reposting a few illustrative copies here as well. I post the tape pics with no guarantee that they are genuinely her (just for comparison purposes!).




The Tape Pictures:



Another poster has placed more pictures here:

I don't post links to tape videos anymore, so don't bother asking. This was after a few people complained when the links went down .... invariably the complainant had not posted any thanks on the post, despite obviously having downloaded from them ..... a few minutes searching usually turn them up if you want them.

Default Ballet Star: Ida Rubenstein

Ida Rubenstein was a Russian ballerina, actress, patron and Belle Époque figure. She was born into a wealthy Jewish family, but was orphaned at an early age .... by the standard of Russian ballet, she had little formal dance training. She began her training too late to be a great dancer. She did, however, have tremendous stage presence and was able to act.

So what's a girl gonna do when she has limited talents, and has to get that attention of the great Diaghilev? Well nudity has always done it, so in a quick 'route one' approach to attention seeking, she was tutored by Mikhail Fokine for a 'special' performance of the 'Salomé' which she debuted in 1908. This was a single 'private' performance of Oscar Wilde's play in dance, in which she stripped nude in the course of the 'Dance of the Seven Veils' .... performing without the benefit of music to avoid the censors. The performance was both the talk of St Petersburg and scandalous.

Sergei Diaghilev took her into the Ballets Russes and she danced the title role of 'Cléopâtre' in the Paris season of 1909, and 'Zobéide' in 'Scherezade' in 1910 (both choreographed by Fokine who had done both their careers no harm with his Salome stunt ). She was partnered in 'Scherazade' by the great Nijinsky, but Rubinstein left the 'Ballets Russes' in 1911, and in fact she left Russia before the first World War and the Revolution to go to Paris.

She then formed her own dance company, and commissioned several lavish productions including 'Le Martyre de Saint Sebastien' which included a score by Debussy. This prompted another scandal when the Archbishop of Paris prohibited all Catholics from attending because 'St. Sebastian' was being played by both a woman and a Jewess. Openly Bisexual, while in Paris, she began a three-year lesbian affair with the painter Romaine Brooks, who created a striking portrait of her as Venus (some of you may recall that Brooks was the long-term lover of Natalie Barney who has featured here already, come to think of so has Venus ).

After the First World War, Rubinstein appeared in a number of plays, and enjoyed success .... She was an adventurous commissioner of works (mainly to suit her limited dance style) and she commissioned and performed in Maurice Ravel's Boléro in 1928. Other works developed were Massine's 'David', with music by Sauguet; and 'Le Baiser de la fée', with music by Stravinsky. The company was revived in 1931 and 1934, with new works. She closed the company in 1935, and gave her last performance in the play 'Jeanne d'Arc au bûcher' in Paris, 1939. Rubinstein often staged free ballet events after she retired, and continued to dance until the start of the Second World War .... and she was much celebrated in in France, by writers and artists. She had been awarded honorary French citizenship, in 1935, and in 1936 she converted to Roman Catholicism.

In 1940 she left France during the German invasion, and made her way to England via Algeria and Morocco. There she helped wounded Free French soldiers until 1944. One of her many lovers, Walter Guinness (of that family), sponsored her to a suite at the Ritz Hotel, until he was assassinated by the Stern Gang in late 1944. She returned to France after the war, living finally at Les Olivades at Vence. She died in 1960 at Vence, France, and is buried nearby.

Trivia:
  • Her portrait by Valentin Serov in 1910 marks the most complete realization of his mature style.
  • The Art Deco sculptor Demetre Chiparus produced a Rubinstein figurine.
  • She was also painted by Antonio de la Gandara.
  • The painter Romaine Brooks, used the dancer as a nude model for Venus.
  • She commissioned and performed in Maurice Ravel's Boléro in 1928.
  • In 1934 the French government awarded her the Légion d'honneur
  • In 1939 the Grand Cross of the order, the highest rank.
  • She was said to live solely on a diet of champagne and biscuits, she was moody and unpredictable as a sitter, posing a challenge for artists, including her lover Brooks.

Default Model: Daiana Antivero

Daiana Antivero (aka Natalia Antivero) is an Argentinian Model, who at just 18 should have her future mapped out in front of her, especially as she already had a 'Maxim' shoot behind her. Well she has, its apparently behind bars and that's what she's facing after being arrested this month, for trying to smuggle drugs to Europe, according to AFP reports.

The 18-year-old model was detained along with five other people, including two Dutch citizens. The busts came after the wiretaps revealed that would be responsible for the logistics of a drug gang. The head of Argentina's airport police said the Argentine model was part of the operation to send mules to Europe. "We believe the girl had a role in organizing logistics and was basically in charge of booking tickets and hotels for the mules," he said.

The six suspects were arrested in separate raids in and around the capital Buenos Aires over several days. He added that security agents had found 3.5 kilograms of cocaine, including one kilogram that had been divided into capsules to be swallowed by the carriers. The police said the two Dutch citizens were each found with "capsules of cocaine in their bodies" without elaborating ..... not the snap of rubber gloves!

She will no doubt try to plead her innocence with 'the old I didn't know anything' defence (leaving her friends to take the rap), but as her boyfriend was one of the arrested, this may need a very good legal weasel to squeeze her out of this mess anytime this decade. Her parents, who are separated, pleaded her innocence of the charges, but then started blaming each other for the situation she was in .... a broken home then

Pictures:

She has no thread here as she is virtually unknown, even in Argentina, so a serious number of pictures posted ..... Please consider creating a new thread if you want to post more. She has plenty of pictures out there, and she hardly warrants anymore here. Thanks






Videos:

For those that are bothered, here she is on model shoots:

Default Actress: Hildegard Knef

Hildegard Knef (aka Hildegard Neff or Hildegarde Neff) was a German actress, singer and writer. She began studying acting in 1940, aged 14. She appeared in several films even before the fall of the Third Reich, but most were not released until after World War II. Her acting career is best known for 'Die Mörder sind unter uns' (The Murderers Are Among Us), which was the first film released after the Second World War in East Germany .... Westerners may remember her more for her appearance in 'The Snows of Kilimanjaro' in 1952 and her appearance in a number of 1960's low budget films such as the Hammer film 'The Lost Continent'.

In order to achieve success outside of Germany, she had to change her name from Knef to Neff and this gained her some success and stardom on Broadway as “Ninotchka” in the Cole Porter musical, 'Silk Stockings'. She began a new career in 1963 as a singer and surprised her audiences with the deep, smoky quality of her voice and the many lyrics, which she wrote herself ... she continued to sing through out the 1960s and 1970s as a singer of German chansons.

She got much support from her fans around the world as she fought and defeated cancer several times, and she returned to Berlin to live after the reunification. She was married three times and died from emphysema, aged 76, in 2002.

She published several books during her lifetime, including her autobiography 'Der geschenkte Gaul - Bericht aus einem Leben' (The Gift Horse - Report of a Life) in 1970. This was a candid recount of her life in Germany during and after World War II. It was said to the best-selling German book after World War II. Her second book 'Das Urteil' (The Verdict) in 1975 dealt with her struggles with breast cancer.

Ah your thinking, just a 'forgotten' celeb and no scandal? As if I would do that .... In 1950 she starred in the movie 'Marina in Die Sünderin' (The Sinner), in which she performed the first nude scene in German film history The nudity in the scene caused one of the largest scandals in German film-making history up until that time. This was especially so when the Roman Catholic Church protested vehemently against the films release. She responded with something of a put down “I can't understand all that fuss - just five years after Auschwitz!”

Trivia:
  • She was forced to dress as a young man to avoid being raped by the Soviet soldiers and was sent to a POW camp as she was thought to be a soldier.
  • David Selznick invited her to Hollywood, but she refused to agree to the conditions of the contract which reportedly included changing her name to Gilda Christian and pretending to be Austrian rather than German.
  • She was a close personal friend of Marlene Dietrich, despite being in the legend's international shadow for much her career.
  • Became a naturalized citizen of the United States in 1950.
Pictures:

Much to my surprise, she turned out to have a thread already, which took the wind out my sails ... ah well, just a few pics. Any follows up to her thread please.

Default reality 'Star': Gina Lisa Lohfink

Gina Lisa (aka Gina Lisa Lohfink), appeared in the third cycle of Germany’s Next Top Model. She was eliminated in the sixth episode ... and that's all folks. Well it should have been, but suddenly the Internet carried a story about the Germany’s Next Top Model contestant Gina Lisa, and her recent homemade sex tape, which was leaked online.

The video was apparently released by the German newspaper 'Bild' and features 23 minutes of “wild erotic games and unbridled sex.” The paper was claiming that Gina Lisa gave them permission to leak the video ..... well maybe, or maybe not, but its too late now

She appears to have capitalised on all this publicity with a German Pl*yboy appearance .... and then sunk back into well deserved obscurity.

Pictures:

She has a non nude post, and one with the video as well nude pictures here, but no thread, so anyone wanting to post more pictures could start a new thread for her .... she ain't shy ... apologies for any duplicates, but I was in a rush tonight.

Default Model (Actress): Angelyne

I hope that I have earned enough 'merit points' to be allowed a small bit of latitude on this thread ... this lady, ain't a disgrace as such (well not that I know of, or in the normal sense of this thread ... but read on), but she is certainly 'minor' and almost 'unknown'. She is 'Angelyne', a model and occasional actress who I feel has a spiritual home here on this thread. She is principally known for her purchase of billboards advertising herself in of Hollywood and Los Angeles. Her "mystique" partially exists because she refuses to directly answer questions (or gives contradictory replies), so much of Angelyne's actual biographical information is vague or false, which makes her easy to post on. She is believed to be about 49 yrs old, and single (or not).

She began to gain notice in the early 1980's. when a series of handbills, and later billboards, popped up around Los Angeles featuring her in various poses and she soon got her first TV appearance as a guest on the late night talk show 'Thicke of the Night' ..... she often compared herself to the doll 'Barbie', stating that "Kids think I'm a Barbie doll." and, on one billboard, "Barbie wishes she were me." Her billboard campaign garnered her some minor celebrity status and she has appeared in several television shows and movies, including the opening titles of the 1980s television series 'Moonlighting', a brief mention in the movie 'Get Shorty', and a quick parody during the credits of cartoon series 'Futurama'. She has had parts in a number of movies, from 'Earth Girls Are Easy' in 1988, to 'Place Like Home' in 2012

She was one of the candidates in the 2003 California 'recall' election, finishing 28th in a field of 135 candidates (with 2,533 votes). Her slogan during the campaign was "We’ve had Gray, we’ve had Brown, now it’s time for some blond and pink" ... She was also a candidate for Hollywood city council in 2002, if it were to secede from Los Angeles.

As of 2010 most of her billboards have disappeared from the Los Angeles area. Presumably she has either not got the funds to pay for more, or she is getting too old, or maybe they achieved what she wanted? After all her stated aim was to be "famous for being famous".

In truth some might think she isn't aging terribly well, if some of the pictures I turned up are her now, and that's putting it mildly .... but she may return again .... 'fame', even minor, is such a drug.

Even More Trivial bits:
  • Angelyne drives a pink Corvette with the license plate "ANGLYNE".
  • She has a pink Maltese named 'Buddha'.
  • In the movie Escape from L.A. with Los Angeles in ruins, 'Snake Plissken' walks up Hollywood Boulevard and looks up to see a pristine Angelyne billboard.
  • She is the author of an as-yet unfilmed screenplay 'The Bra that Ate L.A.' about a mad scientist who invents a supernatural power-converting brazier.
  • Measurements: 43DD-23-35 (Source: Celebrity Sleuth magazine)

Default Painter and Socialite: Mary Pinchot Meyer

Mary Pinchot Meyer was an American socialite, and minimalist painter. She was the daughter of a wealthy lawyer and a key figure in the 'Progressive Party' who had helped fund the 'socialist' magazine, 'The Masses'. She attended Vassar College, where she became interested in Communism. While at a dance held at Choate Rosemary Hall she first met 'John F. Kennedy' .... I suspect that you are way ahead of me now, but lets get there in the normal way. She left Vassar and became a journalist, writing for the United Press amongst other publications, where as a pacifist and member of the 'American Labor Party' she first came under scrutiny of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)

She met one Cord Meyer in 1944 when he was a US Marine Corps lieutenant who had lost his left eye because of shrapnel injuries received in combat. The two had similar pacifist views and beliefs in a world government and married on April 19, 1945 .... her husband apparently changed his views after members of the Communist Party USA infiltrated the international organizations he had founded. He began secretly working for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and was soon a "principal operative" of Operation Mockingbird, trying to sway US print and broadcast media toward the CIA line. Mary may also have done some work for the CIA during this time but her tendency towards spur-of-the-moment love affairs reportedly made the agency wary of her.

In 1953 Senator Joseph McCarthy publicly accused the Meyers of being a communists and the FBI was reported to have examined both their political pasts ... but because of the rivalry between the CIA and FBI, initially Dulles aggressively defended the Meyers and her husband remained with the CIA. During the summer of 1954 John F. Kennedy and his wife Jackie Kennedy bought a house not far from where the Meyers lived .... (getting closer).

By the end of 1954 Cord Meyer was still with the CIA and often in Europe, running Radio Free Europe, Radio Liberty .... by 1958 Mary had filed for divorce. Her divorce petition alleged "extreme cruelty, mental in nature, which seriously injured her health, destroyed her happiness, rendered further cohabitation unendurable and compelled the parties to separate." She began painting again in a converted garage studio at the home of her sister 'Tony', and had a close relationship with abstract-minimalist painter Kenneth Noland, while becoming 'friendly' with the other Kennedy, Robert.

Pinchot Meyer visited John F. Kennedy at the White House in October 1961 and their relationship became intimate. Pinchot Meyer told Ann and James Truitt she was keeping a diary of the affair. Mary Pinchot Meyer and John F. Kennedy reportedly had "about 30 trysts" and at least one author has claimed she brought marijuana or LSD to almost all of these meetings (LSD was not illegal in the U.S. at that time and that its use to facilitate psychotherapy and artistic endeavors was not uncommon in some of Pinchot Meyer's social circles). In January 1963 Philip Graham an an American publisher disclosed the Kennedy-Pinchot Meyer affair to a meeting of newspaper editors, but his claim was not reported by the news media at the time.

On October 12, 1964, eleven months after John F. Kennedy's assassination and two weeks after the Warren Commission report was made public, Pinchot Meyer went for a walk along a Canal towpath in Georgetown. A mechanic on Canal Road and heard a woman cry out, "Someone help me, someone help me." He heard two gunshots and ran to a low wall looking upon the path where he saw "a black man in a light jacket, dark slacks, and a dark cap standing over the body of a white woman" ... it was Pinchot Meyer. She had two bullet wounds, one at the back of the head and another in her heart. An FBI forensic expert later said "dark halos on the skin around both entry wounds suggested they had been fired at close-range, possibly point-blank" ... this implied a possible 'hit', or then again just a struggle in a robbery.

For those who do like a conspiracy, when the 'black man' that they arrested came to trial. The Judge Howard Corcoran ruled Mary Pinchot Meyer's private life could not be disclosed in the courtroom ... and indeed the defence lawyer, later remarked that she could find out almost nothing about the murder victim: "It was as if she existed only on the towpath on the day she was murdered" ... the *suspect was acquitted of all charges and the murder remains unsolved (*He wasn't some passing innocent, he led a life of crime thereafter). The 'diary' was found, and its said to have confirmed Meyer's intimate friendship with Kennedy, but nothing else.

Trivia:
  • Timothy Leary the LSD experimenter and friend of Meyer, later claimed Pinchot Meyer influenced Kennedy's "views on nuclear disarmament and rapprochement with Cuba".
  • Leary also made a lot of other claims, including that she was taking part in a plan to avert worldwide nuclear war by convincing powerful male members of the Washington establishment to take mind-altering drugs ... this included conducting LSD sessions with these powerful men, including, she had strongly implied, President John F. Kennedy
  • He went on to suggest 'conspiracies' and other attention seeking claims, which you can believe or not, as is your nature. I choose not to.
  • 'An American Affair', was a 2009 film starring Gretchen Mol as a character based on Mary Pinchot Meyer (the colour pictures attributed as Meyer on some web sites are I believe the actress Mol).
Quote: "Mary's visits to Timothy Leary during the time she was also Kennedy's lover suggest that Kennedy knew more about hallucinogenic drugs than the CIA might have been telling him. No one has ever confirmed that Kennedy tried LSD with Mary. But the timing of her visits to Timothy Leary do coincide with her known private meetings with the President" - journalist Nina Burleigh and Pinchot Meyer's biographer.
