By Jerry Oppenheimer For Dailymail. Jerry Oppenheimer is a Housewives looking nsa Billings New York York Times bestselling author who has written two books about the Kennedys. John F. Kennedy, whose th birthday is being celebrated this year with a Kennedy Centennial postage stamp, TV memorials, a slew of books, and much media coverage, was revered as the 35th president of the United States. But the man married to Jackie Kennedy was quietly chided for his compulsive philandering.
The one iconic photo of President John F. Kennedy up close and personal with a woman other than Jackie shows him and his attorney general brother, Robert, coming on to curvaceous Marilyn Monroe at a party. While the photo of Kennedy cozying up to Monroe is the best known of him with one of his purported lovers, other far less public snapshots show the flip side of Kennedy's intimate relationships. Billings would later spend nights in the White House where he had his own room. Schoolboy crush? Lem Billings and John F Kennedy were practically inseparable in prep school.
Billings reportedly wrote the future president a love note on a piece of toilet paper pictured at the Kennedys' Palm Beach estate. JFK was famous for his womanizing habits, but one of his closest relationships was with Lem Billings. Among the snapshots is one that shows a handsome pre-presidential Kennedy sunning himself, sprawled on a chaise at Patriarch Joe Kennedy's Palm Beach estate. And seated close to Kennedy is his shirtless, tanned and oiled best friend Housewives looking nsa Billings New York, his very gay chum, Kirk LeMoyne 'Lem' Billings. While JFK is legendarily known as a master womanizer who frequently cheated on his first lady, his curious three-decades long intimate friendship with Billings suggests more than a simple bromance.
They met in in their sophomore year at Choate Rosemary Hall, the exclusive Connecticut prep school, when both were teenagers, working together on their class's yearbook, and Billings instantly became attracted sexually and otherwise to the handsome scion of America's self-styled royal family.
Their very intimate relationship would last from those school days to Billings even having a room in the Kennedy White House — distressing for the first lady — to the day of Kennedy's assassination. Kennedy Jr. One of the most credible s of the Kennedy-Billings relationship was told by David Pitts, who I interviewed extensively for my book, Robert F. As one source told me, 'Young Bobby replaced Jack in Lem's heart of hearts. Billings, who was a year older than Jack Kennedy, made his desire known while the two were still at Choate in a bizarre love note, penned on a piece of toilet paper that could be disposed of easily to avoid incrimination at a time when homosexuality was illicit.
While Billings' missive is long gone, a startled Kennedy responded, 'Please don't write to me on toilet paper anymore. I'm not that kind of boy. But Kennedy's reaction to Billings gay come-on soon changed and he became more amenable to his friend's advances, according to the writer Lawrence J. Quirk, author of 'The Kennedys in Hollywood. Lem Billings relaxed on the Kennedys' Palm Beach estate the summer of The Kennedys tolerated his homosexuality, which was considered taboo at the time.
Lawrence J. Kennedy was allegedly on the receiving end of oral sex. Quirk immediately pegged Billings as gay, noting his 'high, screechy laugh,' and 'high nasal whine of a voice. According to Quirk, Billings revealed that his friendship with the future president of the United States 'included oral sex, with Jack always on the receiving end.
Their arrangement, Quirk asserted, 'enabled Jack to sustain his self-delusion that straight men who received oral sex from other males were really only straights looking for sexual release,' and he further observed, 'Jack was in love with Lem being in love with him and considered him the ideal follower adorer.
The Kennedy patriarch, Joe, a noted philanderer himself, was suspicious of Billings' sexual preference from the start of his son's close friendship with him. He noted that everywhere Jack went, Billings was sure to follow, like a puppy dog. Still, the Kennedy clan accepted — even welcomed — Lem Billings into their exclusive inner-circle, practically adopting him, and he became a part of the family. As Billings' biographer David Pitts told me, 'Once JFK decided that Billings was his best friend — like it or leave, everybody in the family sort of fell in line with that.
The Kennedys were a liberal family and one that tolerated a lot of heterosexual promiscuity as well.
While her husband had his qualms about Billings and couldn't stand to have him around, the matriarch Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy, had a different take. In her memoir, Times To Remember, published eleven years after Jack's assassination in Dallas inshe wrote that Billings had 'remained Jack's lifelong close friend, confidant, sharer in old memories and new experiences…He has really been part of 'our family' since that first time he showed up at our house as one of 'Jack's surprises.
One of Jack's five sisters, Eunice Kennedy Shriver, found it hard to describe her brother's relationship with Billings, once stating, 'It was a complete liberation of the spirit…' for Jack, and that her brother was a 'complete liberated man when he was with Lem.
But Billings was embarrassed about his effeminate mannerisms — he'd remain publicly closeted for his lifetime.
But I'm stuck with the Kennedys emotionally, and I will be to the end of my life. Jacqueline Kennedy was reportedly unhappuabout her husband and Billings' three decade long relationship. The president was famously believed to have affairs during their marriage. When their brother Bobby married Ethel Skakel in a royal-like wedding in Greenwich, Connecticut, the staunchly conservative republican and seemingly homophobic Skakels let their feelings about Billings' gayness be known.
Ethel's alcoholic, philandering brother, George Skakel Jr. And George Terrian, the alcoholic husband of Ethel Kennedy's alcoholic, pill-popping sister, Georgeann, told me in interviews for Housewives looking nsa Billings New York book 'The Other Mrs. JFK appeared to be in love with the idea of Billings being in love with him. Their lifelong relationship caused some of the presidents advisers to fear Russian agents may use the information as blackmail. After Jack Kennedy's election to the presidency, Billings was a constant presence and overnight guest at the White House.
Knowing the kind of intimate relationship that he had with the president, advisers were concerned about political repercussions, and even blackmail. The Cold War was still raging, and there was fear Russian agents might use the friendship against Kennedy. Housewives looking nsa Billings New York Vidal, the writer who claimed he viewed homosexuality as normal as heterosexuality, disparaged the JFK-Billings relationship during the Kennedy administration.
She reportedly had a love-hate relationship with her husband's best friend. The first lady, Jackie, had something of Housewives looking nsa Billings New York love-hate relationship with Billings. But was reportedly upset that her husband spent so much time with him, and that he often stayed overnight at the White House. Like the rest of the free world, Billings was devastated when President Kennedy was assassinated.
The biographer Sally Bedell Smith, referred to Billings in one of her books as 'probably the saddest of the Kennedy widows. After the assassination of RFK inthe flamboyant Billings transferred his obsessive affection for Jack, to handsome teenager Bobby Jr. David Pitts, the author of 'Jack and Lem: The Untold Story of an Extraordinary Friendship,' told me, 'Lem was a gay man and he had a year-old, good-looking kid living in his house with him and there had been rumors because of that. I have no evidence one way or another, but I would discount [any sexual activity. During the night of May 28, —almost two decades after JFK's untimely death — year-old Lem Billings died in his sleep of an apparent heart attack.
Billings had once told Bobby that when he died he wanted the pall-bearers to be members of Bobby's circle of young friends, whom he Housewives looking nsa Billings New York well and with whom he had done drugs. Part of the family: From childhood to adulthood, Billings stayed close to Jack Kennedy and his family. Jack's best friend was Lem, and he would want to remind everyone of that today.
